  1. Wow hard to believe that Gerrit Cole is going to make more money than Chris Davis
  2. Sorry, 2 of 5, to me not a great % for a guy you give 30+M/year thru his age 37 season.
  3. I don't think Strasburg will have a Scherzer like run Scherzer has been over 170 innings every year of his career, he never had the Strasburg injury issues
  4. 245 Million for 7 years of a 31 yo pitcher who has only topped 175 innings in 2 of the last 6 years. Anyone think this contract will look good in 2 years ? Will it look good next year? When will teams learn to stop paying for past performance and keep away from all Boras clients.
  5. 2012, The home run binge that Mark Reynolds had against the Yankees Manny and the play Pre-season predicted (like always) to finish last place
  6. A lesser guy might have quit Respect that he kept grinding and tried to reinvent himself without a ML fastball
  7. I'm just glad that we don't have him as a reminder of the failed drafting/player development of the previous regime. Two top 5 pitchers (Gausman & Bundy), Gausman released, and Bundy traded for non prospects.
  8. From all I can discern, the law firm is in decline, as it was built largely on the tenacity of PA himself. Not sure that it generates much profit, certainly not in the league with other ML owners businesses
  9. The real problem ( 20+ years) remains the same The Orioles need new ownership. The Angelos family pockets are not very deep. I don't believe we will ever see a top 15 payroll with the present ownership. I pray that they are stripping the franchise to the studs in preparation to selling.
  10. Wow Redskins, please give up the HOF BS Manny hit .259 last year, isn't in the top 5 in ML 3B He has a really good shot at the Orioles HOF, Cooperstown not going to happen
  11. LOL, he had a higher WAR than Manny last season, and for 20 million less
  12. I'm okay with them waiving Villar who I found to be the most entertaining player but why not throw the fans a bone and release the worst player in ML history?
  13. I really don't see how the Orioles can work the Houston Astros / Chicago Cubs model Both of those teams are major markets and when they built up their young core they than made their playoff push by making significant FA signings. Baltimore is a small (and declining) market and the Angelos family does not have deep pockets It's great that they are building up the system and getting interested in the international market but the Villar release is just a precursor to how they will fail to achieve the Astros/Cubs success because the Angelos family will never support a top 10 payroll. Hopefully the get sold and the sooner the better.
  14. According to the MIT Living Wage Calculator, the living wage for Maryland is $15.48/hour. So a guy in say low A doesn't make $32K a year Eliminating all of the bonus guys I wonder how many are in that boat... and I'm sure the players union or the owners could make up the difference
