I was wondering who owned Camden yards? I thought it was the team, but I guess the city of Baltimore owns it? I don’t care who owns the team, but I don’t want them to leave Baltimore. I think it would be horrible, as well as being a complete surrender to the nationals, which would really get my goat.
Why do folks think Ripken would be an asset?
Has he done that much with his minor league teams that indicate he'd be a good owner?
I'm asking out of honest curiosity. Is it just what he did as a player that is influencing people?
Hard pass. I don't want to see the Orioles take a hard turn into politics anymore than they have.
Bisciotti has allowed political ideology to be significant part of the Ravens' organization public persona. Whether I agree with his political stance or not, I do not want Bisciotti anywhere near the Orioles organization.
Now I don't want this is turn political so there is no reason to talk about what the Ravens have done, but my preference would be to have an owner that is solely focused on providing the funding to make the Orioles a first class competitive baseball franchise once again!
Regardless, if the Orioles ownership is preparing to sell the team, then we can forget about any kind of offseason pick ups this year (which I was not counting on anyways).
This is 100% true. All it takes is ownership that's willing to see past the short term and accept some near term financial risk.
And we have owners who are probably about to sell, so it's just not going to happen. Another missed opportunity, IMO, but in this case, probably completely reasonable.
