  1. Big Ben is insanely good. It’s amazing. “Finally,” he days after Sulser finally gets a call from the ump to end the game. Love it. Captured my feelings entirely.
  2. Thanks Cakes.... I mean Il BuonO. It's all true.

    Whatever. I meant that he's average at just about everything. Average speed, average bat, average arm. You can play hit and run with him both at the plate and on the bases. He knows how to play the game. Hate if you want, but I think he can help a team in a bunch of different ways. It was always odd to me that Buck could never find a spot for him. Nothing to lose sleep over. No need to be nasty if you were.
  4. I agree with the decision by Tony. If people want to talk about politics, there are other places they can do that. This is the bottom line: Not in OH. I am quite politically active, but I just want to focus on the O's here in OH. Glad that will continue.

    Don't forget Mullins. It always struck me as short sighted. Always. The numbers were never great, but they weren't bad either. The guy can do alot of things. Oh well...
  6. How on God's green earth does $380M make business sense at this point in time. I think these contracts are absolutely ludicrous from a business perspective. Obviously, I know nothing. I think, not sure, that the people who run the Dodgers and other organizations say to themselves, "in 10 years time, we'll have more revenue streams. We'll push the cost even further down the road." I just do not understand how this could possibly make sense business wise. But these contracts keep getting done (thinking of Manny last year) so I clearly know nothing. Congrats to Mookie. That is one whale of contract!
  7. Nate McClouth. Definitely him.
  8. So personally. I like the pick. I think the Orioles obviously has issues with Martin. That is obvious. I do not think it was the money. I think there were some red flags. And the pitchers were not what they were looking for. So... who else was there at 2. Obviously, I would have liked trade down if Martin was not your guy. But not possible. We’ll see how it all plays out over time.
  9. Good point! The MLB draft is still a disaster. The NBA and NFL do it so much better. I like the idea of way less rounds.
  10. I'm confident the bat is ready. He'll hit. The Davis/Mancini/Mountcastle tri-fecta is annoying though. I don't think they should trade Mancini. He's just a great clubhouse guy and very Nick Markakis like in his approach. I think Mountcastle comes up at the end of May and is your everyday LF.
  11. Yup. I have similar feelings. I'll probably get over them. I would just like to think that baseball players are admirable people. The cheating scandal makes it painfully obvious that they are not. I don't know how the Astros players can live with themselves. I guess they tell themselves either, "Everyone was doing it" or "It didn't really help us." They haven't actually said either. They have said, "Sorry." I don't know... sorry isn't really a good enough answer. I think MLB should vacate their World Series.
  12. My thoughts exactly. So excited that he's thought about retirement. My take is that he is definitely going to retire if he has an awful year.
  13. Yes. That is my recollection. Buck definitely thought they were up to no good.
  14. Someone will make a documentary about this one day...
