  1. The 1989-1997 orno cap is damn good, as is the cartoon bird. The O's cap is...fine? The more realistic orno birds from 1998-2011 were the less good designs.
  2. The good: He's been working out in Sarasota all winter. The O's have a good handle of how he looks, how his health is based on that. He's also another season removed from the injury in 2016 (this all started then. His performance since coming off the DL that year was forgettable) He has the stuff, has consistently pitched well in his time here, sans part of 2016 and 2017. If he's healthy, he should at least be serviceable. At the price-point, what is there to lose?
  3. The CC Sabathia deal worked well, even with a few hiccup years.
  4. At any rate, good relievers on crappy teams should be targeted. Sooner, rather than later. This pen needs reinforcement.
  5. They lack the talent to go on some decent winning streaks to get back in the hunt. Stick a fork in 'em, and look to their roster for trade fodder.
  6. DD should make a trade for a decent pitcher on a crappy team, ala Bud Norris in 2013. For negligible prospects, he managed to get us a pretty solid pitcher for 2013-2015. Our farm system is not stacked enough to get a leet starter, so I think looking at the 'decent' crop would be the right focus. Anyone have some candidates? Keep in mind: the focus should be on 2017. Future cost, control, and long-term outlook are less important in this exercise.
  7. Book it here. Bet in Vegas. Series is already over.
  8. That's a massive cost to engineer and implement and would benefit them less than using MLB's already established infrastructure.
  9. Moar "throwback" pricing for sections, ala 2012
  10. Just snagged a couple of Terrace Box seats for the game tonight (Thursday). It will likely be my only one I can get to this week, but still excited to be a part of the crowd during this pennant push.
  11. 1. I work 50 hour weeks 2. Every day I need to be up for work by 6:20 3. Whether driving or taking transit, I'm normally not back to my home before 10:30-11. Normally I'm in bed by this time. Working a 12 hour shift while tired is not doable for me. We're an overworked middle-lower middle metro area with a particularly poor city core. If it's not an economy of money that's holding us back, it can likely be an economy of time. And some people are scared because of the riots (I laugh at the overblown fear of going downtown, myself). It is what it is. Still made it to 5 games this year, though.
  12. I think I'm going to go to the Wednesday game. Gotta do my part in painting the park orange, or whatever. These games are so crucial.
  13. Adam Eaton? Been there, done that. No thanks.
  14. Derpy controller design is derpy.
