He always struck me as a class act.    I wouldn’t hold it against him that he came through for his team in a playoff game where we happened to be the opponent.

Yeah, I respect Ibanez as a player and I don't know enough about him to know if he'd be a good manager, but I would give him an interview.

The fact that he, like Beltran, speaks both English and Spanish is a huge plus (I think).

I don't think any rising star type managers would want this job currently.  Doesn't hurt to do a lot of interviews tho.

Next guy is going to be a caretaker.

Rising star or not, it has to be tough for someone to turn down their first opportunity to manage in the majors.

I'm talking more about the former players who are in a better position to wait.

What do you think about Eduardo Perez?

I truly dislike him as a human being.  Just from his style of interacting with others on the "have a take" shows that he inhabits.

Grew up with baseball royalty and acts like he was it.

    • Hmmm. I see three things as delaying our rebuild: bringing up any prospect too soon( Although I don’t care about service time issues, if a guy’s ready, bring him up) signing any high dollar free agent, and trading away prospects. So don’t do those things. (The Straily/Karns signings were exactly what we needed even though they both failed. But several other inexpensive pickups worked reasonably well) With that in mind, I would like to win as many games as possible without jeopardizing our future. 70 wins is better than 50. Do whatever three things will help that goal.
    • It doesn’t slow down the game.  That fired me up.  It was great to see an Oriole play with such emotion.
    • Good lord, that's a lot. lol  I love his talent (not really a fan of his attitude, though), but I don't wanna be the one who gives up that much for him.   I find it ironic that both Tunsil and Ramsey are good enough to get their teams this kind of return considering Ozzie passed on both of them.  Do you think Ozzie thinks Ramsey is worth that 3rd rounder now? lol  Just remember, that 3rd rounder he refused to give up ended up being Kaufusi ... lol    
    • Starting tomorrow night!    Interesting, but I like out of the box thinking.   Let’s see how it goes.

    • Mancini went 4 gotr 4 with two doubles and an HBP tonight, raiding his OPS to .892.   That’s the highest it’s been since July 2.   Would love to see him crank it to over .900 at the end of the season.
