  1. Remember when he was the biggest acquisition of the Winter Meetings?
  2. @WNST Chris Davis believed to be seeking $200 million over eight years, per @JonHeymanCBS. Who would have thought such a thing a year ago?
  3. I got my Manny autograph in his rookie season (and I'm not even going to FanFest this year), so I don't really have a dog in this fight. Perhaps if Manny's unable to make FanFest, they can give out vouchers to ticketholders for his session(s) to get one of those autographed cards in the mail? The kids don't get to meet him, but at least they'll get an autograph out of the deal. Thoughts?
  4. Wasn't sure if this should be its own article or not. Mods, feel free to merge if you feel otherwise. @Berger_BYTES #BlueJays and free agent slugger Chris Davis appear to be in a serious contract dance. This would be a terrific move - short and long-term. @GideonTurk Source: Interest in Chris Davis is "legit". "Lots of fans in the scouting dept". Would need to move players to fit the salary. "Longshot." Andrew Stoeten also has an article up about the Blue Jays interest.
  5. Mance is dead!? That's another departure from the books.
  6. Undoubtedly the homer in me talking, but more of the reason Duquette should be appreciative of the opportunity the O's gave him. You're welcome, Dan.
  7. I just hope we're not left with egg on our face again.
  8. http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/blog/bal-updated-thoughts-on-the-dan-duquette-situation-20150122-story.html# I'm not sure how to read that. Is Connolly saying that it will stay take Hoffman+ or that we'd be willing to deal DD for less?
  9. I think someone before said promote Buck and hire Gardenhire. I'd be okay with that.
  10. Is it safe to say DD is staying for now, given the fact that Beeston is going to stay on for 2015? Or could the Blue Jays still "acquire" DD and have him train under Beeston for a year? This whole thing is so confusing.
  11. Ravens are making accusations now. http://connecticut.cbslocal.com/2015/01/21/patriots-footballs-under-inflated/
  12. New Rosenthal article "Time has come for O's, Duquette to end 'toxic' impasse" http://www.foxsports.com/mlb/just-a-bit-outside/story/baltimore-orioles-impasse-with-gm-dan-duquette-needs-to-end-soon-012015
  13. So, unless a good deal falls in our lap, it sounds like we're standing pat. http://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2015/01/still-waiting-for-orioles-to-make-their-next-move.html
  14. Rasmus is in Houston talking to the Astros right now. Ruh roh!
  15. My bad. I saw that Encina tweeted it this morning, so I just assumed it was his article.
  16. Great column by Encina this morning. http://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/blog/bal-dan-duquette-orioles-blue-jays-questions-answers-20150119-story.html#page=1 Doesn't sound like DD is going anywhere, given the Angelos comments.
  17. All the more reason to tell them to pound sand, if they're sticking up for the Blue Jays in the Duquette dispute.
  18. Until this all plays out, will someone else be doing the FA signings and/or trades or is the entire FO kinda in flux right now?
  19. Roch told me on Twitter there's not a thing MLB can do.
