  1. Hope that Chris Davis's contract will be remembered by O's fans. Perhaps, at least for a time, we will think twice and then thrice about the Davis episode when another fan favorite wants a big mult-year contract. No hope such reservations will be long-term.
  2. Want the O's to win the games I watch, but lose all the games I miss watching. The rational part of my brain sees it one way, the Neanderthal part the opposite.
  3. If you haven't had a crab cake in Baltimore or the Eastern Shore, then you never had a crab cake. You may have eaten a "crab cake" on the menu of some restaurant in some foreign land, such as Alabama, but you were denied a real crab cake.
  4. 19/60 = 0.317 ball puts us in the running for the top draft choice. I'm more comfortable with the O's winning 16 games or 0.267. Could make the O's #1.
  5. The simulation program may not have enough dumb luck coded into it. This is an underapprciated part of the national pastime.
  6. Ravens are betting that its drafted receivers will improve during the season and become impact players during the playoffs.
  7. Don't know the answer for MLB owners. Most billionaires inherit the foundaiton of their great wealth. Inheritance taxes are mostly avoided by tax attorneys specializing in estates.
  8. A CPA needs to pore over tax returns to attain a true picture of an owner's MLB business. If a billionaire signs off on a bad contract, then the contract must be honored. It's our free enterprise system. You win some, you lose some. Self-made billionaires win more than they lose.
  9. Billionaires losing money. Boo Hoo. Millionaires losing money. boo hoo. Pick a side. Millionaires are worth 1000 x less than billionaires. Both will survive, One group will feel the pain 1000 x more than the other. I have a hard time ginning up much empathy for either side.
  10. Neither the franchises nor the players are to blame. MLB is not an amateur league. The owners and players are in it for the money. Each side aims to maximize profit.
  11. Baseball was destroyed many years ago when batters were required to wear helmets. It's was a national disgrace when batters lost the freedom to feel the breeze of a high inside fastball.
  12. Please provide a citation for the newspaper that says "it was like a mass shooting." Would like to read that item and need the name of the paper, the date of publication, and the title of the news article. Thanks so much.
  13. Let's say $100. But, there is an unusual caveat. If I am staying at home most days, then I am looking for baseball games in the afternoon. The game should be played anyway in the sun, as the gods intended. For night games in empty stadia, let's say $50. Although the team has major flaws,, the GM is working to create a respectable one. It'll be fun to follow the young players and enjoy their development, sometimes postive and often a step back. Might even be fun to see Chris Davis at bat, if spring training was a harbinger of a miraculous comeback.
  14. Bob Maisel, beat reprote for the Baltimore Sun during the glory years.
  15. Kaline went from Baltimore's Southern High School in 1957 to a HOF career with the Detroit Tigers.
