Mayne he might be. Just a side note to you. The Round Rock Express will be the 3A team for the  Astros. I'm thrilled with that. As for a new manager for the O's I don't have any real preference. That it be the GM's choice. A younger man that will move the organization into the 21st century.

Yes, saw the news about RR Express. Made sense with Reid Ryan already working for the Stros.

I hope I can get out there some next season. I love the Stros and wish they'd never moved to the AL.

I feel like Girardi ends up being the guy.

There’s no question he did a good job with NY, but his personality rubs me the wrong way. That whiny bit he does is insufferable.

It’s a great facility to watch a game. Consistently ranked top three AAA stadiums in the country.

He'd never be accepted by the O's fans.

I haven't been out there since 2014.

There are a consistent 8k that show up. I'm sure some of them would be ok. Heck, a couple grand of the base crowd are Yankee fans like Teixeira was.

No. Whoever is brought in is a caretaker and of course a fall guy. 

I like Ausmus... you bring him in on a four year deal and tell him the record in the first two years doesn’t matter. It’s beyond stupid to hire a “Fall guy”

    • Hard to put much stock into what guys like Al Davis says. There is a host of reasons for the team to say in Baltimore. Just because there is a wild arse rumor floating that the team is looking into moving, doesnt make it true, or a probability, either.
    • I want to believe this is true, but I can't get over the fact that Jaime Moyers come along very infrequently, and most often as guys who used to throw harder but have transitioned to pitchability types at the end of their careers. He's not very high on my personal list even though he's clearly an exceptional MiL pitcher. Hopefully I'm wrong.
    • I was worried about the injuries.  Wasn't a risk I was willing to take that high.
    • I was thinking about this the other day. There were quite a few people here that felt like he was the better pick at the time. I really didn't post much then, or now either, but I really liked him as a player.    Bundy was a good selection at the time. He's had a decent career in the grand scheme of things, just not on the level of Rendon.
    • He sounds very much like Ryan Mountcastle, at a high level at least. Profiles as a bat first guy who won't stick at short. With that said, hopefully he doesn't have an obviously deficient arm like Mountcastle. If he turns into a 3B eventually, which is what it sounds like to me, that bat could be a real plus. A ton of development between now and then though. I'd expect them to take it slow with him.
    • Kinga Glyk is the name of the bassist.
    • Am curious your opinion... Mine was generally that hard contact is the hardest skill to teach, and that transferring from contact to power was easier than the opposite. When you have a straight power approach and you're on, it's glorious. However, when you're not in a groove, it gets really ugly. I don't recommend that approach for pretty much anyone. Even supremely talented hitters like Giancarlo Stanton can lose value quickly when they lose the line drive approach to their game. Alternatively, when you're making hard line drive contact regularly, it's easier to let yourself go and crush some balls, IMO. It's when you do too much of that approach that your swing starts to develop real holes. Well, this is all my personal experience, at least.
