  1. One four door sedan in blue with 200 hp with 30 mpg costs $16777 another costs $31000. Amazingly many choose the more expensive one because of other intangibles. So did we.
  2. Actually, our moves to start the setup man rush probably caused this. The Rockies had Hawkins on their radar for a while.
  3. Or a reliever that is ready to retire.
  4. For Jones, you may have the league average starter that you need. Wright, Lopez, mayyyyyybeee Benson. You may also have a minor league second baseman

    Trade rumor

    Which would put Fiorentino in the Oriole Hall of Fame as most valuable Oriole ever, second of course, to Milt Pappas
  6. Our receptionist saw us watching the other day. She was adamant that I give the the site address. She keeps her speakers up and watches all day now. She has no computer at home so she came to work at 6:30 am to watch the daylight. Good times.
  7. I don't think our #5 averaged 5 plus innings in 06 so maybe Wright is not so bad there.
  8. Good post Steve. I have no idea if our front office will be successful executing their plan, or even if their plan is any good. Or even if it is good, if it will work. I am, however, very pleased that we did not get Sheffield and give the Yankees Penn. I am glad that we got a pitcher who was willing to listen to Leo successfully. I am glad he can throw 94 mph and is not old and I am glad he is a one year stop gap. League average starting pitchers will cost 5 to 6 million this post season. I liked Britton as I liked John Maine. I wish them both the best when we are not playing them. I guess my only concern here is could we have gotten a better starter than the potential upside of Jaret for this year for Britton alone. I suspect not. I think with Duquette handling the post season moves and the fact that our insiders tell us this is the precursor to other corollary moves I can be very pleased that a plan appears evident. It has been a while since we have seen any semblance of a plan this early in the year. There have been many excellent point in favor of this trade and against in this thread. I do not believe that we made as big a gaffe with this move as the Tigers potentially did with the Sheff deal. If you search my posts you will find that I consistently favor the development of a rotation that saves the bullpen. If Wright is slotted at number five as he should be, I can't help but think that he would improve our production there in 2007. I do not have rose glasses that tell me that this move will in anyway get us to game 6 of the World Series with Jaret winking at Leo and throwing strike three past Pujols. But, IF we got there two years before I have said that we will, and he throws the home run pitch that forces game seven...I will be real, real, happy. I miss having Tony Fernandez beat us.
  9. From NYYankeefans... They also posted lots of "fat" pics
  10. Be Happy....this means there is a budget, and a plan. Thank you BB and Belkast for further insight in advance.
  11. It's great to know that others suffer.....
  12. So i clicked the links at MLBTRADERUMORS.... And this is what I found on northside. Posted: Mon Oct 30, 2006 3:45 pm Post subject: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  13. Is it wise if they do??? I mean, under the known constraints that his contract included, he was a valuable assest to his old team. If he is resigned by the Cubs...can they afford to make the necessary moves that it will take to win the World Series NEXT YEAR so that a century has not passed with out them being champions? I am not saying that ARam or any free agent is going to come to the Orioles. I just think that his value to the Cubs is now over...they will either overpay for him now or lose him. The 6 /100 that someone mentioned before appeared to be about right.
  14. I can remember Cal being criticized for many thing. Steroid abuse was not one of them.
  15. I just had to reply because of my sig
  16. I believe there is circumstancial evidence that he did not use steriods while an Oriole
  17. To love them. They are just doing what all the "cool kids" are doing.
  18. "There's another way to phrase that and that is that the absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence. It is basically saying the same thing in a different way. Simply because you do not have evidence that something does exist does not mean that you have evidence that it doesn't exist."
  19. Grimsley will never speak on the record to anyone other than those in the legal system again.
