  1. I'm not crazy about the move, but I understand why it is happening. If you are going to non-tender a player anyway because you can't apparently find a trade partner, why not give that player and his agent a few days to see if there is a team out there willing to put in a claim and go to arbitration with him. To me, based on what Villar did last year, that's a good move for him and a decent thing to do. If no one claims him and he become a free agent as he would after Monday anyway, well that speaks volumes. I go back to 1954. I don't like losing but i'm treating what we are going through as a rerun of the early years. I like following the youngsters!
  2. A high school class mate of mine wrote a book about the Eastern Shore League. Can't remember the name of the book but his name ( the author) is Bill Mowbray. A google search may find that for you. I remember seeing Don Zimmerman play for the Cambridge Dodgers. Hope you can find it and enjoy.
  3. I grew up to age 4 in Arlington Virginia and then to the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Up to age 14, all I knew were the Cambridge Dodgers ( Dodger's Class D team) and the Washington Senators. My uncle took me to a Sunday Senator's double header in 1952. Watched the Senators beat the Yankees twice, each time with a Cuban starting pitcher for the Senators. Was special cause that may have been the only time that year they beat the Yankees. Got Mickey Vernon's and Eddie Yost's (The Walking Man)autograph. When the Brown's moved to Baltimore in 1954, I became hooked. Have been a Oriole's fan ever since. I remember that first year like it was yesterday. My favorite players were Ole Scrap Iron - Clint Courtney ( I caught in Little League) - and Chuck Deering - a fleet no hit center fielder ( I couldn't hit either but played good defense ). When it came to the National league, I rooted for the Dodgers. As is still true today - ANY ONE BUT THE YANKEES!
  4. I really thought you were going to say you hate them because: - They proved you could get to the World Series with very good home grown pitching. - They proved with very good pitching even a "so-so" offense could compete with the rest of each league. - Thereby deminishing for another year the argument that the Big Markets like the Hankies can buy their way into everything - whenever. A RING FOR HUFFSTER!!!!!!?

    Petition

    Let's see: For the first time in quite a while, we are entering September and actually for the moment improving our won/loss record instead of going further in the tank. Yea, let's petition to fire the manager.
  6. Assuming the FO can pull off a trade with a good young return, DO IT, now or this winter!
