AJ knows Mullins "is knocking on the door."

I wonder with AJ buying Cal's house if he has already discussed staying with the organization and there is a plan in place. I would gladly have AJ for 2-3 years as a RF and mentor to Mullins and Hays.

Will he give us as big of a discount as the one he got on Cal’s house?

Markakis still lives near Angelos' estate in Monkton.   I really doubt real estate will be a factor.

Quote

He put his Sarasota, Fla., home up for sale last year after signing with the Braves, and he told The Baltimore Sun in April 2015 that he was planning to build another house in Monkton.

"That's where we're going to be," Markakis said. "That's where my kids were born. It's where they've got their friends. We love the area. We love the community, so that's where we're going to call home."

He publicly stated it was purchased as an investment only.

You are letting your hatred of the Yankees cloud your thought process.

Mussina was screwed over by the owner.

Mussina also helped put the Orioles in back to back ALCS, and came close to being in the WS.

In 9 full seasons in B-More, he produced a 45.6 WAR, pretty damn good pitching, if you asked me

Mussina deserves to be in the HOF, as for what hat he wears, who knows what MLB will decide.

MLB has no say in such matters. They're not technically affiliated with the HoF. The officials there call the shots, and typically will very much defer to players if a player has certain leanings.

That said, with as crowded as the ballot is about to start getting, I don't consider him a shoe-in for the Hall at all.

Adam Jones is an awesome dude, but I would rather keep good players in free agency and not have prospects blocked by bad ones in their mid 30s on a rebuilding club. I hope he goes somewhere and contributes as a role player on a contending club.

Unfortunately, agreed. If the O's didn't already have three DH's on the roster in Davis, Trumbo and Mancini, I'd be totally fine with throwing Jones a contract to let him finish here while the team rebuilds, because I don't expect to compete immediately, anyway. But there's just no space.
