  1. Anyone who has any thoughts that Chris Davis or most anyone is going to walk away from his contract is deluding themselves. I think it is time to release him but I don't blame him for not retiring. The money is 100% guaranteed. He like most of us is going to collect it.
  2. And as far as releasing Chris Davis goes as much as we all are ready for this to happen he isn't taking at bats away from anyone who deserves them this year. If next year Ryan Mountcastle and/or Diaz are ready and he is still taking a roster spot then I think the outrage is more justified. Chris Davis didn't help or hurt their win/loss record or development of real major league prospects. I am sure the Chris Davis situtation was discussed when Elias took the job,
  3. I was wondering this as well. I wouldn't be surprised if they reconsider sending him there after this finish to the season.
  4. I agree here 100%. Once he got past August 1 it was obvious they weren't going to release him this year. They are going to give it another off season. Then I think they give him until around the time May 1st when someone like Mountcastle would be called up after his service time issues are gone. What will be interesting to watch is how much different Chris Davis's off-season's approach is. I guess he could change nothing and report to spring training and still collect his money. What is the player's obligation to work in the off season? Stay in shape, etc?
  5. And they will "fiddle" with his service clock because it is what they should do. Until the rules change.
  6. I just wanted to post how much I enjoyed my first Bark at Oriole Park game last night with my Golden Retriever. The Orioles did a great job with this promotion from plenty of water, dog biscuits etc. Sure if they were selling more tickets there wouldn't be enough room for all the dogs but right now it is a great promotion. It is good to see and meet everyone else's pups. The range of sizes and breeds was vast. I hope they do more of these next season.
  7. He is still throwing in the upper 90's. If Gausman was non-tendered he would be a free agent pitcher they should try to sign cheap to a 1 year deal. He seemed to like pitching for the Orioles and would be a project to see if the new information could help him.
  8. I was wondering if now that a 3rd catcher is up would Sisco get a start at 3rd base or any other position during September.
  9. Great job and thank you! Right now where the Orioles are as a franchise, your summaries have much more of my attention than the major league games.
  10. It is apparent that Brady's role has been greatly reduced. If the Angelos sons have some kind of loyalty to him I don't have a real problem with that. Unlike before it is very CLEAR that Mike Elias is in charge of the baseball operations of this team. The manager, general manager, and Brady Anderson seemed to have their own direct line to ownership and not on the same page. I don't think that exists any longer.
  11. Buck's son was also let go as well. https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2019/08/orioles-replacing-more-holdovers-from-previous-front-office.html
  12. I also think Brian Roberts deserves a mention here as well. I enjoy listening to him as well.
  13. One of the last questions asked to Brandon Hyde at his press conference tonight is was Harvey warming up to come in if they took the lead. He first said he was throwing to the catcher standing up. Then he said he could have come in if they Orioles had taken the lead. Could Hunter Harvey be the Orioles closer already?
