  1. Yeah. I don’t think Mazzilli was a good fit here either.
  2. I thought they could finish over .500.
  3. I admit I was too busy enjoying the 2012-16 run to be as upset about it as I should have been at the time. It’s remarkable how Peter justified what he did. You could basically invest a decades worth of International signings for what they gave Ubaldo.
  4. Makes me wonder what goes through the mind of Duquette and all the recent Orioles GM’s on a day like today. Like telling a NFL GM they can’t pick players from a major conference.
  5. That was a big one. I can’t think of one bigger since then. That offseason included new GM and Manager also. I guess 03-04 is biggest one since then. Tejada, Lopez, Palmeiro plus new manager.
  6. If Mullins plays, not starts in 118 games it could be a good or bad thing. Injuries/lack of production from others or playing with a lead a lot. How they handle DH assuming Trey is good to go will be a storyline early this year.
  7. Shaw is in direct competition with Stewart. He will not impact anyone else.
  8. The bad thing is if he handles this differently his image in Baltimore would be much better off. Now perhaps he simply doesn’t care about that but it looks like his true colors are showing and it’s not a good look. This isn’t someone who declined but went down with a fight. Being called out on your work ethic is about as bad a thing that can be said about someone. Years from now when all this blows over people can still appreciate the productive player he was from 2012-16. He is ruining that chance.
  9. They are going to need a plan to compensate these guys better early on. That has to be done.
  10. The issue is when Mike Trout or Manny come into the league and play lights out they are vastly underpaid. The basic idea for years was players are underpaid early on, paid about right in later arbitration years and overpaid after that. It would equal out on some levels. Now since teams aren’t wasting as much in FA with players aging faster the players aren’t getting their fair share.
  11. This makes a ton of sense. At this point I’m starting to think he is trying to force the Orioles hand here.
  12. I don’t see how or why MLB would tell the Orioles what to do. Clearly the Orioles had to drop one team. Nothing would have stopped them from keeping Frederick over a city they kept.
  13. You do that. I’m sure they will sell for a ton of money on ebay right after the game. There are a couple of things I like but the volume is pretty light.
  14. https://www.mlb.com/orioles/tickets/promotions I have to admit, I’m not impressed.
  15. Yeah. Didn’t think about that. Good point.
  16. Hey they took two players today. Cost some money.
  17. Since it’s the Orioles we are talking about this is a big offseason move.
  18. Coming off TJ surgery and hasn’t pitched a real game in 2 years. Long man role looks ideal.
  19. Not sure what their logic is with Pop.
  20. Has to be based off instructional workouts from fall. No obligation to keep. Maybe one arm pans out. Can always try and hide a guy in the pen. He will sign a SS who is a FA or waiver pickup.
  21. To be fair he turned 24 at the end of the AA season in 2018 and had surgery.
  22. Going to need to add a SS to roster at some point. Unless it’s a MiL then they add him right before season.
  23. Orioles select Rickey Ramirez RHP Minnesota A ball roster. https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=ramire004ric
