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.

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.

    • Lol. Because we have to room to make our 2 rule 5 selections. 
    • I’m torn on Mckenna. I see your points about Fry and Armstrong. I think we have some relievers that would be “good” if they were on a team that could use them in traditional ways. Like Fry, Scott, Armstrong, Castro, and even Bleier, but we’re not a traditional team. We’re a team struggling to cover innings.  That’s why I Was surprised we let Ynoa and Brooks both go. I could see one but not both. Those were two guys you could stick in any game and say you just gotta eat innings.  Having one inning relievers on this team is pretty pointless, outside of Givens.  Will we be able to do the Norfolk shuttle now, since there really aren’t those guys on the roster now to shuttle up and down?  They’re now prospects that we’d like to leave in their SP regimen. 
    • Why would anyone need to be DFAd in that scenario with five open roster spaces?
    • The O's really needs to add  near term starters.  And to sign them Elias may have to offer a 40 man roster spots.  I see Armstrong and Fry vulnerable to being left go in order to sign some guys that offer more innings. Wojo types.   Kyle Moore says Fenter has three plus pitches.  As bad as the O's need starters I can't see  them exposing a guy like that to the draft.  Even if he ends of being a multi inning reliever if he has three plus pitches he is too good to expose IMO. If the O's had the room I would protect McKenna but when I try to fit him on the 40 man with the need for starters, long relievers and adding Mountcastle I run out of room.  
    • Thanks for the great analysis @Tony-OH @Luke-OH.   Do you guys think Mullins has been officially asked to give up switch hitting?  
    • 26 man roster thought... A six man rotation would benefit everyone. I know, I know... we can barely find 5 SP(really 3), but it could allow us to start Harvey in 3IP stints, and go from there.  Means - would his fb play up, or could it hurt the feel for his secondaries? Bundy - always benefits from the extra rest  Cobb - has been hurt the last two years, so... Wojo - his stuff could play up Akin - a good way to break him into the MLB.  Wasn’t going deep into AAA starts. Harvey - we get to see if he can start with extra rest and a controlled environment. Also this would be a good way to introduce future pitching prospects as either spot starters or for long relief one game. Or why couldn’t we just piggyback guys like they do in the minors to start the year. What is the downside?  We lose 110 instead of 105?
    • Just reminds of how strange a year 2012 was. Roberts was a non-contributor to that team. I can’t say I be same about Markakis, he just caught a tough break from CC. The first time we make the playoffs after all those years and those two weren’t factors in the playoffs.
