  1. You just send them down with whatever half baked excuse you want to give. He will struggle at some point in the next couple of seasons, the O's just have to wait for a couple bad starts in a row and Boom! its down to Norfolk to work on his mechanics. Its pretty much what the Brewers did with Hardy a few years back.
  2. Doing it at the start of the season is certainly the easiest way but just ask Hardy if its possible for a team to still manipulate your service time after you get called up.
  3. Come on now Sammy I live down here and I know at least three Rays fans, one of them even has a hat and everything.
  4. Here you go scOtt, trust me its better then the original version/video. <object style="height: 390px; width: 640px"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxZp4VEopcE?version=3"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OxZp4VEopcE?version=3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="640" height="390"></object>
  5. The Tampa gun has him touching 98. If he can keep it up it going to be a very long season for the rest of the AL East.
  6. Today only two for one special. <object style="height: 390px; width: 640px"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncBwCDeetUQ?version=3"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncBwCDeetUQ?version=3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="640" height="390"></object>
  7. Weaver > Mussina He probably is, personally I think its past time to get over it. It might also be a nice gesture if the O's were to put him into the O's hall of fame, maybe take the first step in reconciliation.
  8. I think that reference is more obscure then you think that reference is.
  9. Right but Britton going 3-1 and Till/BB going 1-3 means, to Trea, 3 more losses. See Trea is working with a whole different math system then the rest of us. To the rest of us thats 2 more losses, once you take into account the fact that Trea is using a different counting system then you can understand the worth of these April games.
  10. You are forgetting the part where Fox hits a homer on the 3-0 pitch, the other side gets offended and drills the next batter. Silly or not there tends to be consequences for not following etiquette. Particularly as a catcher, Fox should be aware of those situations and act accordingly.
  11. I had a bad magazine when shooting a M-16 once, very frustrating experience. Caused me to fail weapons qualification, I ended up having to go to a Navy range and qualify with a 9mm. I can see where a bad clip could leave you questioning the weapon's reliability.
  12. Suprised this has not been mentioned: Fox is not a first time offender this spring, I can see where that would increase Buck's ire.
  13. Considering that you are not aquatic and have vertebrae wouldn't that more likely make you a Hindu god?
  14. I agree on all points except unreliable. I went to AIT with a desert storm vet who swore that he took an AK-47 that was buried in the Iraqi sand, slapped in a fresh clip and fired off a burst. Now you want a fickle beast? Try a M-16, doesn't take much at all to jam one of those.
  15. She sounds like a real sweetheart as well...
  16. I would be very surprised if the weapon has full auto capabilities, it has in all probably been modified to be SA only. That being said it wouldn't be hard for someone competent to turn it back into a fully automatic weapon. AK is a silly weapon for someone like Longo to own, there are much better choices. The AK is rightly famous for being an extremely robust platform that is easy to maufacture, however if you are not a member of a third world army that needs a weapon that will function when its buried in sand there are superior weapons.
  17. As much as I am in favor of the second amendment I don't see a good reason to bring even a modified assult weapon to a rental property. If you don't have the means to properly secure a weapon of that type you need to keep it at a local range. If you want something like an AK, you should be willing to invest in something like this: http://www.guncabinetsandsafes.com/gun-safes/gun-safes/gardallgf5517combinationlock11gunsafe.cfm Of course thats the baseline model, I am sure Longo could afford something nicer.
  18. I think it is more likely Signing Vlad for 8 million to DH does not strike me as an AM move.
  19. I would consider not accruing major league service time and not making the major league minimum salary not winning. Sit me down on the bench and keep my service clock running; that much closer to arbitration, free agency and a very nice pension plan.
  20. Check Jones' games played in his MLB career. If 161 games a year Markakis was in CF you could get away with not having a backup on the roster. Jones gets dinged up and misses games.
  21. I think the fact that he did not get an inning in CF in ST is very telling.
  22. I agree its the right move but I don't see how you can say with any certainty that this won't be a lost season for Reimold.
  23. That will be on the roster, yes. If Jones and Pie both go down Angle would be fine in CF defensively but his offensive game is not MLB caliber.
