  1. You can move it if does not belong in this section. I remember he was talking to Manny at Fanfest and told him to be more calm on the field. The family of Mo Gaba — an enthusiastic 11-year-old Baltimore Orioles superfan who has beaten cancer twice and has gained a local following with calls to sports-talk radio programs — got another round of bad news recently. Following two previous diagnoses of retinoblastoma, the blind Glen Burnie fifth-grader was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer, and had to be taken out of his classes George Cromw
  2. http://espn.go.com/mlb/story/_/id/14943065/goose-gossage-rips-jose-bautista-toronto-blue-jays-nerds-ruining-baseball Hey at least he got one of those two right.
  3. o Stephen Strasburg is not Interested in an Extension With the Nationals (By Marc Normandin) http://www.sbnation.com/mlb/2016/2/16/11014844/stephen-strasburg-free-agent-rumors-extension-nationals-scott-boras
  4. Well, it had to happen. Didn't it? Yep: the independent Sonoma Stompers of the Pacific Association handed the baseball operations keys over to these two knuckleheads with zero actual baseball experience in order to see how it?d all work. Over the weekend Sam wrote a column about it at the New York Timestalking about what worked and what didn?t. http://mlb.nbcsports.com/2016/04/25/when-stat-nerds-are-allowed-to-run-a-baseball-team/
  5. Eastern League Championship Series starts Tuesday. David Hess with a 3-0 Victory. Triggs with the save. Yastrzemski and Latimore with home runs. Hess pitched seven innings with one hit. He was just drafted last year.
  6. Early Guesstimate on next year's O's team: 1B Mancini, Walker or Wilkins (ST competition) 2B Schoop SS Hardy 3B Machado LF Pearce CF Jones RF Parra C Joseph DH Mancini, Walker, Wilkins, Paredes, or Reimold Bench Flaherty Clevenger Reimold Lake, Alvarez or Urrutia Chen Jimenez Tillman Gonzalez Gausman Britton O'Day Brach Givens Matusz (non tender and resign) or another lefty Drake or Bundy Wilson The off season emphasis will be on staying in budget and bringing back Chen and O'Day so the pitching has a chance to bounce back to its 2014 form. O's count on 30 homers s
  7. The Brewers have just told Garza not to bother coming back from Paternity leave. This follows him refusing to pitch out of the pen after being bumped from the rotation. Both have two years remaining on 4/50 contracts. Both will be entering their age 32 seasons. Would you trade one bad contract for another? http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/g/garzama01.shtml http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/j/jimenub01.shtml

  9. Watching O's flailing away at the plate yesterday got me thinking about getaway games, specifically the time of game. Has anyone heard that the last game of a series is played faster than the previous games in the series? Perhaps players are anxious to get going after the game?
  10. The acquisition of Parra locks down one of the open spots in the outfield. But there is one position still unclaimed. Chris Davis will be in RF or 1B but there is still a player needed to make a complete lineup. Flaherty at 1B is not ideal. Wieters on occasion at 1B is not bad but he will not give up his day job behind the plate. So who will take that spot. Will it be filled internally or will Dan make a trade? Here are some ideas thinking through the options: 1) When Pearce returns 100% healthy he takes over 1B. That might work if he return to 2014 form. However there are two pr
  11. http://grantland.com/the-triangle/mlb-kevin-gausman-baltimore-orioles-starting-pitchers-dan-duquette/ Interesting article trying to figure out exactly why Gausman isn't in the rotation right now.
  12. A great read here about Fielder and any other premium FA signing by a team that supposedly isn't close to contending. Nail meet head. Just an awesome piece that should be required reading for every Orioles fan, media person and executive. Bra-freaking-vo! :clap3::clap3::clap3: You can always make excuses not to sign anybody. The opportunities for the Orioles are running out. Free agency is getting worse and worse. The Orioles keep passing and the players keep declining in quality. You need to acquire the talent when it is available otherwise you may not be able to acquire it when
  13. Andy MacPhail recently said the following: That last phrase, seems to be key, as MacPhail of course seems to think pitching is the most important facet of the game. However it was the offense that was so dreadful last season, not the pitching, and while the pitching was stellar under Showalter, it had to be, otherwise they wouldn't have won all those games as the offense still wasn't clicking even in August and September. What's going to happen when the pitching slips back to a more sustainable pace? The answer is the offense is going to have to be there to back them up. If the offense
  14. Simple poll. You are the GM, you know the free agency consequences of putting Britton on the OD roster, and you also know that he arguable has been the best starting pitcher in camp. What do you do?
  15. “As an athlete you compete and you feel like you deserve to be somewhere and you are not, it’s kind of a slap in the face I think,” He goes on to say that he understands the 'business' side, but he wants to be in Baltimore and clearly feels he deserves to be. In an offseason where we have done everything we could to show that we want to win right now, this move seems to go against that aggressive philosophy. Heres hoping he stays healthy and Tillmans 89mph heat starts hitting the glove and picks up 4-5mph. :beerchug1:
  16. While it's been an up and down rookie season for Brian Matusz, he's ending it on a really good note. He's been rock solid in August and September after a disastrous July, and barring something happening between now and Saturday, will finish the season. So now a simple question, where will Brian finish in ROY voting? The Orioles haven't had a player get a vote for the award since Nick Markakis in 2006, including last season with all the promotions. I don't believe Brian will win the award, but I would be surprised if he doesn't finish in the top 5. The 2010 rookie class doesn't really ju
  17. http://www.masnsports.com/school_of_roch/2010/10/talking-free-agents-and-spring-training.html He wants VMart the most especially because of how he hits LHP. Also he mentions the Orioles are willing to deal Tillman:
  18. New food vendor at the stadium next year. I know they looked at some other options last year. http://www.baltimoresun.com/business/bs-bz-orioles-reject-aramark-20101005,0,3609162.story
  19. This just made my day... http://weblogs.baltimoresun.com/sports/orioles/blog/2010/10/macphail_wont_approach_angelos.html
  20. Although it's not going to be surprise to anyone on this board that Cesar Itzuris has been terrible at the plate this season, it might come as a surprise as to HOW bad he's been. Itzuris now has 500 Plate appearances and a .557 OPS. He's hit just 13 doubles and walked just 24 times and hit into 10 double plays. 1) The last AL batter to have 500 or more PA and put up worse OPS was the Orioles Billy Ripken in 1988 (.518). That's 22 years ago. 2) The last MLB player to 500 or more PA and put up worse OPS was the Pirates Jose Lind (.544) in 1992, or 18-years ago. 3) In the last 30 years, only
  21. I find this interesting as it was an excerpt from Camden Chat from a Rangers fan on Showalter's tenure in Texas. Buck seems to be the type of manager to do exactly what this team needs - to deal young unproven talent (based on his evaluations of them) for proven established veterans that will help this team win now. The Adrian Gonzalez tidbit is interesting because Buck was proved wrong there, and considering the O's and Padres match up well for a trade and have a recent trade history - the stage could be set for Buck to right a wrong and re-acquire Gonzalez for his current team now that h
  22. They are some rumours who said that the Brewers are looking to trade Prince Fielder. Since Fielder may be the big homerun guy we are looking for? do you think maybe juste maybe the we can bring him to birdland?
