  1. Maybe it doesn’t have to be either/or. Maybe the O’s are competitive for two or three playoff seasons before finally winning the pennant and WS in 2027! T’would make it sweeter still...
  2. This article about the coach Chris Holt does link to the pitcher mentioned above, but they could possibly be mistaken. https://calltothepen.com/2020/10/26/baltimore-orioles-reported-investigation-mike-elias-not-happening/
  3. Dave Chappelle just played a string of shows at an outdoor venue in Austin where all attendees were tested prior to entry. I know that this is an outlier, and not practical for the size of an audience necessary to facilitate operating a baseball franchise, but thought it was fascinating none the less.
  4. I had one of those moments of time slipping away when I read that Harry Grove was “outdated.” My girlfriend (now wife) and I attended a few games there when it was brand new, before moving to Texas nearly 30 years ago. The Texas Rangers are playing in their third home ballpark since I moved here in 1992. The wife’s folks are getting older, and she’s making noise about returning to Maryland to be closer to them. Her big selling point to me is, “Look how close you could be to Camden Yards?” If it works as I’d like it to, I imagine MurphDog and I will be neighbors!
  5. Past history shows that both of those guys are likely coming back.
  6. Not sure what qualifications are required for a AAA ballpark these days. The Astros AAA team is now in Sugar Land, TX, with 7500 seats.
  7. The Astros are making the Sugar Land Skeeters their AAA affiliate. Recently a part of the Atlantic League, the ballpark in Sugarland holds 7500 spectators. Sugar Land, TX is just outside of Houston. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/texas-sports-nation/astros/article/Sugar-Land-Skeeters-to-become-Astros-AAA-team-15732133.php
  8. Florida is still a COVID nightmare, so I’m not sure how they could have any semblance of a normal spring training. How many players participate in spring training (ML and MiL combined?). Could teams quarantine all of those players? Would the players agree to live like that? Until there’s a trusted vaccine, I can’t imagine anything close to a full season like we had in the Before Times. I think 2021 may look more like 2020 than 2019. Best case scenario would be around 90 games, beginning in June, IF we have a reliable vaccine by April. What are the NBA and NHL planning? Baseball is the only sport I follow.
  9. Ah, the "Three True Outcomes" for a pitching prospect...
  10. This is a family message board!
  11. Sure did. Then returned to LF while still wearing his infielders glove! He’s a mad man!
