I mean, seriously, despite all the nonsense in the past, this trade and these statements provide hope.  Winning is the best, but I very much enjoy the franchise building aspect and watching young players develop.  It's been a horrid season, and I love Manny, but this is a good day.

Dumpster Dan is getting his mojo back. It will be pretty shocking if Dan is around next season and not Buck. I personally expected Dan to be the one leaving.

This is what I think - the team under Buck & Brady expected to compete this year with their personnel philosophy, and after a TERRIBLE half season, ownership (John) has given the organization a second look.  Re-Enter Dan.

I might add... we did just have the international signing period.  Would've been great to start using that THIS season, but, whatever.  Starting forward today is better than not starting forward at all.

Go sign Victor Victor Mesa, and let’s get started.   

Now this would be an exciting first step.

Too late. Relationships between teams and players are built long before January or whenever they took over of a calendar year.

Ok, so as much as I usually follow baseball pretty close...I've pretty much ignored how the international $$ works since we have punted for years.  Can someone point me in the direction to a good site of how this works and how much the O's have?

 

I've seen these names, but are they actually a possibility for the O's?

Yeah, and not so much for the fact that we will be playing Risk like the big boys, but more so that some fresh air seems to be blowing through Miss Havisham's warehouse. I think Dan, Buck, and Brady are the "brain trust" going forward for better or worse.  We could...and have done...much worse.

Sounds good.  Can we realistically?
