  1. Totally misunderstood the poll. I thought they were listed in order of ranking. Since Akin was listed before Kremer, I dismissed that as a possibility. Since I was certain the consensus was that Kremer is higher than Akin. Oh well.
  2. I was a little disappointed that the O's won a meaningless game at the end of the season and it cost them a draft spot. I know that it's not that big a deal but, the idea of Boston getting back Sale, Rodriguez and Benintendi and picking in front of of the O's is infuriating.
  3. I'm kind of disappointed. I was kind of curious to see if the O's could have turned him around. But, we have a lot of guys that need to be added. I think we will start to lose guys that don't suck.
  4. Did they settle on how to lay out the draft order? I thought that was still up in the air. I've heard a few different options such as combining this year's with last year's records or some type of winning percentage formula.
  5. Well, we had a long thread in which I expressed my opinions on that issue. Won't rehash it but it is safe to say that after all the back and forth, neither of us has changed our position. 👊
  6. I agree completely that what you are suggesting is possible. It goes against the norm but, I agree. My point was that they don't have to do it that way with the current roster make up and expansion.
  7. Sorry for being slow to respond. I've been busy the last week or so. Anyway, some of this has worked itself out over that time frame. You make a valid point and I guess I would say that normally I would agree with you but with the expanded rosters and the flexibility of several of the current players I would say having a third catcher is a luxury that they can enjoy. You can make the same argument with pitchers and outfielders. It is extremely unlikely that the O's would run out of pitchers in a single day and if an extra outfielders is needed then call him up the next day.
  8. I think with the current roster consisting of several guys who can play INF/OF having the 3rd catcher is a great move. It allows Hyde to DH one of Severino or Sisco when both are hot as they have been. The fact that Holaday can play a little first is a bonus. I think it leads to more lineup flexibility than less.
  9. I don't like it when sport leagues get involved with politics regardless of the politics. I just want to enjoy the diversion without the messaging.
  10. I don't think that DJ has anything to do with Mountcastle. If RM hits he'll play.
  11. I love a good salmon cake. I used to eat them in DC in churches who ran breakfast buffets.
  12. I forgot how bad that September collapse was. They finished 75-87 or 4-17 after that date.
  13. I'm going to go with that I blocked out all memory of the 92 series because the Blue Jays won. 🤣🤣
  14. Let's hope there is less wind than there usually is in Sarasota in March.
  15. You maybe right... There are two images that I thought of when I made that comment. Schilling: bloody sock of course. I don't think Mussina pitches in that game. Mussina: After a Yankee's loss saying (I am paraphrasing a little) Well, I did my job and gave the team a chance to win.
  16. I agree. It makes no sense to actually say this out loud. He clearly thinks he's the smartest guy in the room.
  17. That and his politics. Since the HOF has turned into more of a place for very good players (IMHO) and I get that they need to put in players every year to keep the money rolling into town. I think Schilling should be in. I would rather have him pitch in a big game than ole' I did my job by giving my team a chance to win, Mike Mussina.
  18. That's an interesting question. It certainly is possible. I enjoy the twists and turns of threads sometimes. Like how an 5 1/2 year old poll turns into a thread about the HOF.
  19. I had not remembered it that way. Should've done more research. I guess that's what I get for trusting my memory.
  20. Morris was very good for about 10-12 years. It helped that he won WS with the Tigers, Twins and Blue Jays. One could argue that he was a difference maker with all of them.
  21. Seems to me to be a pretty smart way for a club in the O's position to manage the roster. I really hope that things get to the point where there can be some type of expanded fall league for MiLB players. The fall is really nice weather for baseball until mid-october.
