Great OH Mysteries

Recommended Posts

What are some unanswered questions around here about people/posters that you can think of?

Just to name a few:

1) What the hell happened to MaxPower?

2) What the hell happened to NuclearDish

3) Did OriolesJim ever smoke pot?

4) Where did RShack go for approx. 2 years?

5) Is TonySoprano actually TonySoprano (reveals very little about his personal life -- which is fine, of course)?

Any more?

Brian is alive and well, living in Israel with his wife and 3 kids. I emailed with him after the Final Four, and again after the Carolina trio decided to return to school.

Why doesn't he post here anymore?

I already knew ND was in Israel, he's very missed here, and I believe Rshack was released for a year or so. The Max Power mystery is what I'm most interested in, and concerned for that matter. He was a great prolific poster, and then disappeared. Very odd.

I don't really know, but I'll ask him next time I talk to him. I know he's still a die hard.

I imagine Roch and others in the media must post here- who are they? For a while I thought Moose was Roch.

Also, I'm sure some of the players check out the board from time to time- I wonder what they think or if they post. I can't help but imagine different scenarios... Payton decided to check out the site when he was first signed and then cringed and never looked again, BRob reads Cindy's posts when he needs an ego boost, AM secretly checks in every so often for different trade ideas he may have never considered, Scott gains satisfaction that the fans actually pay attention to his splits, and on and on...

Humm...I think Tony Butler posts some.

4) Where did RShack go for approx. 2 years?

Tony gave me a 3 or 4 day vacation for giving him some lip.

After a couple days I realized I was enjoying baseball more, so I took a year or so off. It spanned part of 2 seasons.

After a year, I forgot about all the stupid bickering, so I came back.

I may do it again, just to finish a book I'm taking way too long to write.

Yes, I said what you've all been wondering.

I haven't heard directly, but Dish is in the Holy Land, Yudi is in Engaland, or maybe the Holy Land... who knows by now...

Max I wonder about.

How people, knowing full well how fruitless it is, still repeatedly get in to arguments with the same people thinking they'll somehow "win." Someone get freakin' Robert Stack resurrected to solve that Unsolved Mystery.

    • Not trying to be smart, but I thought Cal had sold off his share of the Aberbeen, along with another of his minor league holders. Nobody said why, but, shortly later, his divorce became public, and people assume he was putting together her part of the holdings.
    • I'm don't think I'm making any large leaps assuming that Aberdeen is hands-off because of Cal Ripken.
    • Why should Delmarva get sacrificed?  After all, they were the Minor League Team of the Year and has a modern stadium in Salisbury.  Screw convenience... it's nice to have professional baseball come through the Eastern Shore since 1996 and I don't see why that should be tampered with.  An increase in affiliation could lead to the team putting more seats down the left and right side of the diamond to encourage more revenue to accommodate their increased affiliation.
    • At this point, this is throwing good money after bad.  Any appeal is almost certain to be doomed.  What error has the court committed to warrant review?  Angelos just lived through one of his biggest fears.  The Nats winning a World Series.
    • On the heels of a game where Sam Koch didn't punt once. Hoping this formats correctly:   Tm Year G Pnt Pnt/G   Rk Tm Year G Pnt Pnt/G 1 HOU 1990 16 34 2.13   1 BAL 2019 10 21 2.10 2 SDG 1982 9 23 2.56               3 SFO 1993 16 42 2.63               4 NOR 2018 16 43 2.69               5 STL 2001 16 43 2.69               6 LAR 2018 16 43 2.69               7 STL 2000 16 44 2.75               8 KAN 2018 16 45 2.81               9 NWE 2007 16 45 2.81               10 DEN 2008 16 46 2.88               11 NOR 2011 16 47 2.94   2 DAL 2019 10 29 2.90 12 SDG 2011 16 47 2.94   3 LAC 2019 10 29 2.90 13 DET 1971 14 42 3.00   4 ATL 2019 10 30 3.00 14 ATL 2016 16 48 3.00               15 IND 2006 16 48 3.00               16 SFO 1992 16 49 3.06               17 WAS 2016 16 49 3.06               18 DET 1972 14 43 3.07               19 NWE 2008 16 50 3.13   5 KAN 2019 10 31 3.10 20 MIA 1972 14 44 3.14              
    • If anyone predicted this is how Lamar would be at this point, I have my doubts about their veracity.  That being said, I remember the player RG3 was before he broke his knee, and he has never been the player since.  IF Lamar can stay healthy, his future looks very bright. Right before the season started, a caller into 105.7 asked about McSorely and his words were "IF God forbid something happened to Lamar. Rob Long got all indignant and unnecessarily confrontational. "Lemme ask you something why are you asking that question?  Why are YOU askin' that question?"
    • I don't think the premise is very different. JJ was traded for whatever we could get  because we didn't want to pay him his arb number, which would be the same thing happening to Villar. You can make a very reasonable case that Villar is a regression candidate for 2020. Like @weams mentioned.. nobody bit at the trade deadline last year when he was cheaper and having a career year, which I think is telling. Milwaukee practically handed him to us. It seems that we value him on this board much more than other league execs do. But like I've said three times now, I'm not trying to bash Villar or shoo him out of town. I'd be just fine if they decided to keep him and pay his arb salary. I'm just pointing out that it's not some egregious baseball sin to non-tender him. It's a reasonable alternative.
