  1. Perhaps the Orioles' front brass has mistaken spring training for fantasy camp?
  2. Love this post. How do I rep?
  3. Is this a product of: 1) Indecision 2) Compromise 3) Incompetence 4) An artificially intelligent marketing campaign forced down your throat by the soul-less coin counters at MLB Oh, what I wouldn't give to have the dear departed Charles O. Finley leading baseball's marketing department...
  4. Yeah, my apologies. Wasn't trying to make a political statement, but I suppose I did. I'll fix it.
  5. Seriously, no cheating. Ever. The soupy broth of moral relativism is awash with well-intentioned do-gooders whose basic mistake was entertaining the notion that "maybe" is a supportable, ethical stance. There is right and there is wrong. Wrong is always wrong.
  6. Right. Top-tier managers are like ACEs - there aren't enough to go around and they'll always be in demand. By all accounts, Hinch is a skilled manager, well liked by his players and respected by his peers (well, until today, maybe). If he's as good as his record would indicate, I think his transgressions will be overlooked in time...
  7. He'll have to wander the hinterlands of unemployment for a while, but american society - and business in particular -- has a short memory and a large capacity for forgiveness... I bet he's in some coaching capacity inside the next 3-5 years.

    Farewell OH

    Best god-d**n car on the lot... Just remember, the life of a Scouting Analyst Consultant man is always intense!
  9. Alone in his senescence... fearful and unsure... "Sure, Scott, let's do this..."
  10. I was always under the impression - rightly or wrongly - that it was kind of the inverse effect; that Angelos had always been willing to spend $$, until the Albert Belle deal ultimately instilled in him a fearful reluctance to bite on a big deal. I'm not sure that's the same thing as becoming cheap, but the hyper-intense focus on medical evaluations and the lack of interest in signing pitchers to long term deals, I'm pretty sure that stems in some part from the Albert Belle fiasco... All of which made the Chris Davis contract so spectacularly head-shaking... there was so much to be concerned about.
  11. These lists just serve to remind me that my memory recall abilities are fading faster than Rafael Palmeiro's HOF chances... I got 65%!
  12. Thanks, Dylan. I wish there were fewer injuries (and homers), and more wins. Maybe in LA. I attended the 4-2 loss against the Dodgers in September, and he pitched well despite a wobbly second inning. But when Ruiz booted the third out in the sixth, and on the next batter Severino flat out failed to catch strike three of what should have been the third out, Bundy was as done with this team as any pitcher I'd ever seen. Two runs scored on Severino's passed ball, and Bundy never even moved to cover home. As the saying goes, he's in a happier place now...
  13. The change off the change off the change...
  14. If, when you say "survived," you mean "barely hanging on," then yes, you're right. Still made the WC game, though... https://www.rgj.com/story/sports/2019/10/08/mlb-commissioner-rob-manfred-oakland-athletics-move-las-vegas/3911610002/
