  1. MLB Network seems to show it every week if you want to watch it again. I recorded it on my DVR last month. After going to Japan a few times, Mr. Baseball intrigues me now and I want to watch it at least once.
  2. I don't think the Orioles have had a problem drafting good arms, they just have failed to develop the talent or traded it away. Elias fixing the pitching is key to the rebuild. Buying the arms gets very expensive.
  3. That's a good one. Seems like forever ago now, but it was talked about ad nauseam until Mesa signed in October last year with the Marlins.
  4. Did Elias make a bet that he could rebuild the Orioles with Chris Davis remaining on the major league roster.
  5. How much control does Elias really have over player contracts and team budget.
  6. Must be the dollar store version, but with better defense.
  7. Most likely and maybe Peter Angelos depending on how close he was paying attention in 2016.
  8. Trumbo was even younger than Cruz at the time coming off his age 30 season. I was hoping to get at least one good year out of him, but never understood the signing when Davis and Mancini were on the team. Mancini hadn’t proven himself yet, but I was more than willing to give him a chance on a rookie salary.
  9. I bet that was more towards the end of his tenure. In the 1980s and 90s Stern we well liked from what I recall. The NBA grew substantially and NBA salaries skyrocketed.
  10. I really liked Bart Giamatti and was shocked at his sudden passing. David Stern for the first half of his tenure as NBA commissioner was generally well liked.
  11. I'm going to make it a point to stream at least one game from Japan next year to watch Adam play.
  12. Freakin huge, looks like a middle linebacker.
  13. Especially when the MASN lawsuit is settled.
  14. Good point, so about zero chance he stays elite in his mid to late 30’s.
  15. Nationals are going to regret this contract three years in unless Strasburg’s arm holds up like Randy Johnson or Nolan Ryan.
  16. Jeter makes Elway look like Bill Belichick in comparison. Jeter is only doing the job because he was given an ownership stake. Why would he want to do the day-to-day work of a MLB GM after making $265M in career earnings from the Yankees alone not including endorsements. He doesn't. I don't know who is really the day-to-day GM for the Marlins, but it's certainly not Jeter.
  17. Is there any chance that Elias has a need to use the funds that would have gone to Villar now for investment facilities, player development and international signings? I would have preferred to keep Villar, but if Elias ends up using that money into yielding multiple prospects I'm ok with it. Plus short term it's not like Villar turns the Orioles into a team that wins 81+ games.
  18. I think the Orioles will improve in 2020 even with the players they have traded and yet to be traded. Some of the prospects are going to start making a difference next season.
  19. Manny Ramirez and the Red Sox had a bad breakup. I'm not exactly surprised it took this long for Manny to get into their team HOF. I would vote yes on Duquette making the Orioles HOF and Buck too. They were key cogs in the 2012-16 run.
  20. Yakult also makes a tasty yogurt drink.
