      Staying put in Melbourne Beach, and then terrorizing Disney on Saturday.

      Richard...thank you...I will have to add a $60 postage and packing fee because these are big items and I want to make sure they don't break...is that ok? Make a $400 check to Westcoast Sports Ass. and $260 to Roy Firestone (my items and insurance and packing)..and mail to RF 4531 Rubio Ave...Encino, Cal..91436...

      Not a problem, at all.  Will get the checks in the mail.  How are you and your family holding up.  It's so funny.  Went to the grocery store this morning, wearing my Palmer t-shirt.  Pharmacist we used to work with is on his way to work.  We catch up, he notices the t-shirt.  He lives in Vero Beach. 

      Who was your third baseman? 

      That could only be Brooks. 

      Yeah, that's the guy.  Met him at Vero.  Nicest guy in the world. 

      Yep, you met my third baseman.  

      By the way, Roy, you're in that category.  

  2. Gurgi. Initiator of best O's Hangout Thread ever, in my humble opinion. Glad to have you back!
  3. This will veer off course, so I apologize in advance. This site, Tony and Weams have meant so much to me. I will be the 402nd person in this thread to say that I spend time every day learning about our prospects and suspects, and their effort (and Luke's) just can be underestimated. It has been articulated much better than I what they have done. But the personal decency, kindness and caring that this gentleman has extended to my family remains foremost in my thoughts. I met Tony and Weams at an Orioles Hangout many moons ago (Zach Britton was actually the starter, for the second game of the double header, for temporal context). My wife and I had the opportunity to talk to Tony over a frosty beverage (or 6) before the game, and to learn about what he went through to establish this site was fascinating. Two years and autistic triplets later, Weams, Tony and Orioles Hangout have done wonders for my family. I will spare the details, but my boys have been able to experience baseball at Camden Yards and Tampa, because these gentlemen care. Roy Firestone has been another person I've met, and I am in awe in how a man so busy is so caring. I am sorry for the digression, but this site has been a lifeline. I have utmost respect for Tony, I am not in his shoes, and the man has earned everything he wants to decide. Bless him, bless Weams, bless Roy. This is off course, so back to Zach Pop, and his future as a piece of the bullpen.
  4. It is a testament to how the regular season has gone for the parent club, that the first thing I look for in the morning is your summary. What a wonderful effort you have made, and from where I sit, most appreciated. You done good.
  5. Am I still waiting for my fifth cup of coffee to kick in, or is it really the case that Cam Bishop, Matthias Dietz and Blaine Knight, in a combined 24 decisions for Frederick so far, have 1 win?
  6. Also, can't forget the immortal John Stephens, who pitched for the Orioles in 2002. Wonder if he is still available?
  7. As always, Weams, you arrive to the rescue. Thank you.
  8. Knew I could count on Mr. Weams!  Also a very good man.

  9. My $1.00 - $0.98, based on personal experience. Really good man. Really good cause. Really good items. For someone born when Eisenhower was president, I have been so lucky and happy to win on items which bring back such good memories. For what it is worth, read about the charity which the auction supports. Made me feel extremely good , and I hope you feel so, as well. I would link the charity, but as I said, I was born in the 50s.
  10. Happy Thanksgiving, to those who make this such a great message board. Safe travels, and best wishes!
  11. Can't say I really have a huge interest in either team. I have been watching Messrs. Pearce and Machado. One has made me very happy with how he has played.
  12. This is just from personal experience, so take it with the appropriate grain or two of salt. Roy is a very good man, and his charity is a really , really worthwhile cause. I have been fortunate to support the charity, and even more fortunate this morning to look at my 1983 signed World Series bat, from the last auction. Win, win all around. Yes, we actually won the World Series, which is hard to believe after the trials and tribulations this year has brought. Keep up the good work, Roy. The work needs to be done, from where I sit, and you are doing it.
  13. Just a quick message. Been an Os fan since 1966. That season was a tad bit better to bear than this season. My favorite Os are Brooks, Frank, Eddie, and for personal reasons, my favorite is Jim. Roy has offered me the opportunity to enjoy what are truly treasured memories - the items have been great. To know that the proceeds of the auctions are going to help those who need a chance in life - easily, and truly, the icing on the cake. I have enjoyed these auctions, very much
  14. Good call on the Schoop jersey...and you get a second jersey off you win. Both together are probably worth about $400..Good luck!
