  1. Who owns the team again? Lawyers or something? I can’t imagine where he would get away with not showing up to work and not be taken to court. Agree to disagree.
  2. I have a feeling it is not his choice to continue to play. It has more to do with “we will not pay you to sit at home”
  3. And, shockingly, the good ole “ho- hum nothing to see here” response. Curious, what would’ve happened to, say, Chance Sisco, if he reacted the same way? The wealthy have no accountability, imagine that...
  4. I just can’t wait to hear Goodship Lollipop Jim Hunter’s take on all this!!!!!
  5. Please get Bleier off this team. Thanks.
  6. I like this exercise in accountability! Let’s see: 1. I predicted last year that Buck would be managing the Braves this year and sign Adam Jones and would reach the World Series. 2. I thought Colby Rasmus would be a comeback player of the year candidate last year. 3. I thought Ynoa was going to have a Means-like breakout this year. 4. I predicted Bleier to be our All Star this year. 5. I thought we were going to draft someone outside the Top 10 list at 1.1 this year for the sake of signability. Put me on Baseball Tonight, baby!!
  7. Anyone agree that Bundy is a bit similar to Kyle Super Boller? Supposed to be a stud when drafted, shows flashes, but always makes that one critical mistake most games.
  8. Wow, 330 pages to this thread. Is this a OH record? I’m tickled to be a part of it if so.
  9. Watching his press conference, it looks like he’s reading a script. He keeps looking down to his left at the same spot.
  10. As well as Torres...
  11. Sooo, Mancini is our only trade bait?
  12. Like a car wreck, you just can’t look away...
  13. And we give it right back, ugh
  14. How do you know? Are you a scout? What if he takes Adley and he ends up being a huge bust? What would you say then? The draft is an absolute crapshoot. I’d rather stockpile a bunch of really solid guys after taking an underslot at 1.1 than take a guy at 1.1 who pans out, but is the only one who makes it in the whole class.
  15. This isn’t the NFL draft. 1.1 is definitely not guaranteed to be an impact player. I am sure folks were going “Who the heck is Mike Trout?” when he was picked 25th. Ergo, I trust the process and the decisions being made.
  16. Thank god we aren’t paying anyone to stink that badly....
  17. The more pressing question of the evening is where in the world those ladies behind home plate came from. They sure have kept my attention😁
  18. It is becoming more and more difficult to really get into this rebuild without knowing if we’ll even have a team to root for after 2022. So, I guess I’d ask him “boxers or briefs?”
  19. Not to mention the constant shots of all the little kids in the crowd. It’s weird. Like they’re broadcasting a birthday party with a baseball game going on in the background.
  20. When they can barely get 10k in the stadium on a Friday night with beautiful weather, that’s a huge cause for concern. Even the dark years had decent Friday night crowds. Did they take away student discount night?
  21. This x1000. You’re essentially going to make people pay for giveaways. Kinda defeats the purpose, doesn’t it?
  22. See, what really scares me is many people seem to think this is “plug and play” situation, where we will turn into Houston East just because we hired Elias and Sig. I am almost finished reading Astroball and what struck me was the statistics in downtown Houston growth by 2017. There were 18 Houston-based companies in the Fortune 500 in 2017. Does Baltimore have any? Plus, the population was booming, whereas I believe Baltimore’s is rapidly shrinking. I don’t want to believe Baltimore will lose the Orioles in 2023 to Vegas or Nashville or Portland, but it is becoming more and more difficult not to think about that very scenario playing out.
  23. Well, it looks like the rumors were true. I’m not quite sure how to feel about it, to be honest.
  24. Good point. From what I read, it sounded like Vidalin had a good resume. I am just curious.
