  1. Eric...this was a great inside look at a couple interesting kids/prospects. I appreciate your talent. Thank you!
  2. Paul Blair! I was working at the Jacksonville Kennel Club in the late 80s up in the announcer booth area. A good buddy of mine was the track handicapper, he knew I was a life-long Orioles fan and Paul Blair happened to be at the track that night taking in some races. My friend brought up Paul to the booth and introduced me and he sat up there for about 3-4 races and we talked Orioles baseball. It was a really cool experience!
  3. Caleb Joseph would want the job. I don't know if the others would.
  4. That's easy...Nick. Better plate discipline, smarter approach at the plate. Better chance he'll keep the inning alive opposed to Adam. (I like both of them too).
  5. Man...I like Adam and I want to see him do well, but as sincere as Adam's commitment to those things might be...that was more about control than anything else. Plain and simple. He was upset about the reality that the Orioles weren't going to bring him back. He in turn didn't want to help the franchise; whether that be cutting salary for the rest of the season or the benefit of getting a fringe prospect in return. And he was entitled to that as a 10/5 guy. I wouldn't be surprised at all if he goes to San Diego. He's basically going to go to whatever franchise he feels is going to offer him the best opportunity to get ABs, make an impact as a veteran presence. Maybe Philadelphia, Milwaukee? I wish him the best.
  6. You'd build a baseball village.
  7. I like Adam a great deal...I think he's been one of my favorite Orioles for awhile now. It's certainly his right as a 10/5 guy and he's earned it. No hard feelings here at all. My take on it...he probably realizes the jig is up and he might be hurt by it. Understandable. Duquette isn't going to try to re-sign him for next year. He probably knows some of his playing time is going to be chewed up my Mullins in a month or so too. Maybe he even thinks the Orioles just want to toss him away so they don't have to pay him his $7.2 million for the rest of the year and this is his way of literally making them pay. It could be so many things, ego, pride, doesn't want to see his role diminished somewhere else, etc. I'll always be a huge fan and appreciate all the good things he's meant to this franchise.
  8. NBC Sports says the O's are one of the winners. https://mlb.nbcsports.com/2018/07/31/winners-and-losers-of-the-trade-deadline-3/
  9. Yeah....that's not really true. But umm sure.
  10. That's actually what I'm excited about. I wouldn't mind at all if the Orioles were horrendous this year (yes a fan since 1969 can say that), trade off Manny, Adam, and whoever else), get a great draft pick and then start to build with new players coming up Hays, Mullins, etc.
  11. Haha...I thought I would be the first to start this thread. That was my intention in posting tonite for the first time in quite awhile. Should have know better! I'd be surprised if Nick doesn't get to 2500. I certainly hope he does. When you think of those numbers and the fact that only 283 players have accomplished that in MLB history - well that's quite an accomplishment.
  12. He's not very good? In general or strictly pitch framing? You might be letting a bias get in the way if you are saying Matt Wieters isn't a very good baseball player.
