  1. 1. How many games will the Orioles win the rest of the year?

    • Less than 7 games
    • Between 8 and 12
    • Between 13 and 19
    • More than 20 games

They have played 106 games. Should be 56 remaining, although with rainouts it could end up being one or two less. Tough to lose 75 percent of your games and that would be 14 wins. I think 13 to 19 is pretty safe.

At a .302 win clip, that is 17 wins.  But with all the players they lost, I feel like the probably win about 10 more games.  

31 games left vs the Al East  

4 vs the Astros

3 vs Cleveland

3 vs Seattle

I think they'll win just enough games to miss out on the 1st Overall Pick by one game.

Do you really think the Royals can't win more games than a gutted Orioles team?

Their incompetence has been truly staggering. As has the Orioles', but don't put anything past the Royals either when it comes to their ability to screw up.

The Royals are the dumbest luckiest team that was ever assembled.

No matter how many games the Royals will win the rest of the year - one thing is for sure, Ned Yost will have no idea how many they did win.

I think that the talent level is just one variable here.  An Orioles team made up of AAA guys trying to earn a job for 2019 might just play better baseball than the Royals.  Remember all the stretch runs in the 1998-2011 era where the established O's players couldn't wait to go play some golf?  And who could blame them?

    • Heard this little ditty tonight out of work.   Brand new.  
    • And tanking/not being good got them Harper, Strasburg, Rendon and a host of other talents.  Even if they win, it's a legit possibility that Rendon and Strasburg both depart via free agency, and without them, they've got a team that will hang a few games around .500, if they get the bullpen right. 
    • Yep, it's pretty clear what they are doing now. They're all in for this year which is a little weird, because I honestly don't think they are that great, but I guess this is the end of their run so might as well go for it!
    • That is where the accounting chicanery comes into play.  They still paying debt service on the money Angelos loaned the team?
    • I think this misrepresents the non-payroll expenses of the team.    Per Forbes, in 2018 the O’s had revenues of $251 mm, of which $42 mm were gate receipts.    The team reportedly had operating losses of $6.5 mm, and player expenses (salaries + benefits) of $161 mm.   So, that implies that other costs were $251 mm - $161 mm + $6.5 mm = $96.5 mm.    That’s more than paying trivial rent and a few coaches.      Extrapolating those numbers to this year, let’s assume non-gate revenue was flat, gate revenue was down proportionately to attendance (but it may have been worse), and player expenses were proportionate to payroll per BB-ref.   That leads to the following estimate:      Gate receipts $33.5 mm Other revenue: $209 mm Total revenue $242.5 mm Less: non-player expenses $96.5 mm Less: player expenses $94 mm  Net income:   $52.5 mm That’s probably too high, given that Elias has been investing in technology, infrastructure etc.   We’ll see what Forbes estimates next spring.     But certainly Elias had savings available to invest in other areas.
    • I am glad this OP was not around in the 1960s...1969-1971...average attendance was never even at 14,000 with the greatest teams of all time.  Guess what...still here.  I will love to look back on  this thread and some of these posts in three or four years when we are back in it.   And when we get back in it AND the Nats are a power team...maybe a true rivalry will exist and maybe even a Beltway Series.  A true rivalry will fire up new fans in both areas.  Either way, the Orioles are going nowhere. Not in 10 years, not in 15 years, not in 100 years.   No other location has Camden Yards, Babe Ruth’s birthplace, Cal, Frank, Brooks, Eddie, Earl and MLB is not going to leave this iconic ballpark and its tradition empty and abandoned to move to ummm Nashville...lol. My niece also is the agent now for Harbor East and other new downtown condos...they are as hot as anything in DC or anyplace else.
