  1. At this point, the answer, in my opinion is "no". We don't have enough impact players in the system for this team to be contending in the next 1-2 years.
  2. I think the thing that disappoints me more than anything else is the lack of production from Santander, Hayes, and others who we thought could contribute this year. It's very discouraging that we are going into September with nothing (outside of Mullins, Means, Mountcastle, and maybe a couple of relievers) that truly look like they could be long-term assets. Combine this with having no one outside of Rutschman and Rodriguez as "top-notch" prospects, I just don't see this team competing in 1 or 2 years. I'd like to think we could do some things like sign or trade for some players tha
  3. Way to go, weams! Could not think of a better guy to be the first OH HOFer.
  4. Reading this article makes me long for the ritual Spring Training articles with the infamous "I like the way the ball comes out of his hand" type quotes. Ready to see some baseball!
  5. Tampa knows when to hold 'em and knows when to fold 'em. I mean this with the utmost respect.
  6. I understand the Mom's frustration, but get a life. I realize this was something her son really wanted, but it sounds like Boddicker was doing a nice thing by taking the time to talk to another fan. I don't know Mike Boddicker myself, so I don't know if he's a jerk or not. To me, this guy's mother was the "bad guy" in this incident. And like others...I don't get the whole thing about autographs. At least, not to this extent.
  7. He'd have to be for us to sign him!
  8. Yup...I was there for this one, too. Amazing game...the crowd reminded me of Memorial Stadium that night.
  9. I think that ball Griffey hit is still orbiting the earth.
  10. I've been watching baseball for 35 years and the length of the game has never bothered me. If the length of the game is what bothers everyone else, maybe they shouldn't let the manager go to the mound and talk to the pitcher, then make the move. Or, they could prevent batters from stepping out to adjust their helmets, gloves, crotches or whatever else they need to do before each pitch. Maybe they should cut back on the between innings time. Or...get rid of the replay system.
  11. Agree wholeheartedly with this post. If a team has the ability to carry a LOOGY on their roster, why should it matter how many batters he faces?
  12. Good points from both of you. I was thinking that keeping all of the milb teams in MD could be good for attendance, but it makes sense to hold on to Norfolk.
