  1. He was always fun to watch. Who hits 23 triples in a season - as he did in 2007? The last guy to do it was Dale Mitchell back in 1949. Lou Brock never did it. Pete Rose never did it. Nor did Willie Mays or Joe Dimaggio. Ty Cobb hit 23 or more 3 times - but he did it back in the dead ball era. He will be missed.
  2. A utility infielder who has now been DFA'd.
  3. Eight pages on Cedric Mullins is a clear indicator that Spring Training can't get here quickly enough!
  4. Hey... wait a minute. I think you could be on to something here. We should get the boys in the lab on this right away!
  5. Who's going to turn down a junior mint? It's chocolate. It's peppermint. It's delicious!
  6. I've always been a Mancini fan - but for the right package I'd trade him. If the Rangers are in "win now" mode then we might be able to get a decent haul. Hans Crouse, Cole Winn and Nick Solak look interesting. Not suggesting they would trade all three but some combination that includes one or two of them might work.
  7. Something tells me we're not going to see Maverick Hikers "20 better list" anytime soon.
  8. You may think that the money is "nothing" but, as others have pointed out, it is the maximum allowable and is unprecedented.
  9. You don't want to trifle with a man named after a Civil War Battle and a Mountain.
  10. For god's sake they only stole signs that didn't kill anyone!
  11. C - Lew Ford 1B - Lew Ford 2B - Lew Ford SS - Lew Ford 3B - Lew Ford LF - Lew Ford RF - Lew Ford CF - Lew Ford DH - Lew Ford RHP - Lew Ford LHP - Lew Ford RP - Lew Ford
  12. Okay, we I guess if you're going to use "facts" and stuff then you can't make a compelling argument. 😁
  13. One could make a compelling argument that had Chris Davis missed 105 more games due to injuries the O's would have a better won/loss record.
  14. "Old guy skill set?" You mean he can explain escrow and knows the difference between a Roth and traditional IRA?
  15. That whole striking out 19 AAA batters in 9 innings has to be something doesn't it?
  16. That's me. I was 10-20 during the 70's and the Orioles were perpetually in the mix and nearly always at or near the top of the American League East. And let's not forget Paul Blair, Mark Belanger, Boog Powell, Elrod Hendricks, Dave McNally and Mike Cuellar. What a great decade to be an Oriole fan!
  17. Alright, this was not what I was expecting when I clicked on this link. And now I'm sad. I understand that you've got to do what's best for you and the family, but for what it's worth I would really miss this place if it goes away. Baseball, and the Orioles, will never be the same without the Hangout. You've really created something special here Tony. Whatever you decide you should be really proud of what you've done - especially the community you've created here. There's just nothing like it on the web. I can't pretend to understand the economics of running the Hangout, bu
  18. Mine first baseball game was in 1966 in Memorial Stadium. I saw Jim Palmer pitch against (I believe) the Chicago White Sox. My Dad bought me a pennant with a team photo on it and I was an Orioles fan for life. Boog Powell, Frank Robinson, Andy Etchebarren, and of course, Brooks Robinson were on that team.
  19. Your baseball origins story leaves a lot to be desired. First of all it was Abner Doubleday who came down from Mount Cooperstown... and you call yourself a student of the game? Ha!
