  1. Yeah we shoulda. You know I did in fact learn. But they kept moving those fences further and further back. And then by the time I hit a certain age, they were just too far. But in spite of it I kept playing even after I turned 6 and had to play on the ball field instead of my back yard. But man that last summer, in 1968, everyone on Westborne drive knew who I was. Every time I hit a blast the sounds would thunder down from all around. I think of it fondly very often. In my head, the crowd cheering my name. And then of course I chuckle because they were just yelling hey kid shut up and go inside already. 😎
  2. I agree if he sat out, but I was referring to this year. The Os save money based on fewer games as they do with all players based on the pro data agreement. But I believe the deferred money is paid in full. THAT is the part I am still looking To verify. Thanks for adding insight.
  3. Will he? Full salary from point of season beginning? Or as if season never missed a beat?
  4. I have tried to verify this, but I think I am stating this part correctly. Contracts cover time. Not playing does not change that time. However, in the case of Chris Davis... a sizable portion of his contract is deferred and therefore will be paid anyway. In other words, Orioles off the hook for major portion of Chris Davis' salary for 2020, however they still owe the entire portion of deferred money.
  5. I think you will find the response to be along the lines of: You put player X on the DL out of an abundance of caution for everyone. We insist you keep player X on the DL through the duration of proper quarantine procedure for the same reason. We know there will be false positives sometimes, but that's why we have 60 players available..
  6. Depends....Christian Colon is merely out of baseball. Babe Ruth is.....dead. But seriously, looking for middle ground. The next great Oriole Hall of Famer has been drafted. Kjerstad. But it should go without saying that until he proves that, Elias is a punk for not drafting Martin. Come on, let's get two.
  7. Is there any reason the Orioles are not using the entire 60 games as development? Moves like this would be fine with me. Not him per se batting second. But I would totally be on board if Hyde says...Im batting ________ second today so he gets 5 abs.
  8. Cast in this unlikely role, ill equipped to act, with insufficient tact, one must put up barriers to keep oneself intact.
  9. But Steve, if and I say if, meaning that just considering the possibility. Do you think this is a situation where we have really really beaten this horse more than other dead horses? Or, is it that this is the only horse dead or alive we have to beat?
  10. If by beat you mean win the #1 pick in the draft....Booyah!!!
  11. It’s extrapolation of small data sets. IF decisions are made based on them, they can certainly be meaningful. Positive or negative...but meaningful.
  12. It might. IF you believe the O's they took Kjerstad #2 bc they believe he was about to explode. Yes that is based on a small sample but it is a tremendous bet. IF the Orioles use the large roster and no minor leagues to get some work out of higher prospects, it could have quite a bit of meaning...or none. I guess, I am saying....it doesn't mean it doesnt.
  13. As long as the Yankees have access to the cash cow media machine in a way the rest of the league does not, teams will rebuild by tearing down and starting over, opponents can call it tanking because in a way it is, but that is the corollary not the primary reason.
