If these moves don’t confirm to all Oriole fans that John & Lou aren’t running the organization like their father did, I don’t know what will.  The Brady factor aside, I think it’s very clear that times are changing, and John & Lou are committed to making the Orioles a source of pride among fans and in the community once again.  They seem to get it, unlike their father, and it’s truly a breath of fresh air.  I can handle the losing as long as I know the organization has a clear plan to become long-term contenders again, and with the hires of Elias & Sig, I feel extremely confident that this is going to happen, it’s just going to take some time.

I agree completely.  Most positive front office decision and direction since Jerry Hoffberger hired Harry Dalton.   Outstanding!!  And many kudos to the new leaders, John and Louis!

Respect to the Angelos sons for giving Elias autonomy. Really love the Sig acquisition and title. Nicely done, Elias. Keep rolling. Night and day difference to see an analytics focused GM come in and make waves both in words and actions.

Hey look, we both like the GM at the same time! :D

I have never witnessed an Orioles thing so universally well-liked and approved by ALL of the OH, local media, fans, and national baseball media as these two hires. 

I have confirmed that even JTrea himself favors these latest developments.   Kinda questioning my own opinions now tbh.

Ha! I'm just glad it wasn't Colletti, who would have just had us arguing all offseason.

“Sorry Jim, but our analytics show that you suck as an announcer.    Your cliches per minute are through the roof.   And by the way, a three-game hitting streak doesn’t mean squat!!   See ya!!!”

To be fair, he would always modify it with an adjective if it was a short hitting streak.   He'd call it a "modest 3 game hitting streak".

    • With each day that passes, I  find it less likely that we will see a 2020 MLB season.  Covid-19 cases are still on the rise nationwide.  There are so many unknowns with this right now.  I truly miss baseball but am willing to do without for the greater good of our nation and planet.
    • The two times I’ve been to the store the fresh produce has been well stocked.  Frozen vegetables have been wiped out. I think your seeing a trend of people purchasing more things they can stock to reduce the amount of trips needed.  Frozen vegetables, canned goods, soups, and pasta are hard to find.  My plan with produce is to buy berries, bananas, and oranges and eat them in that order more or less.  I guess eggs are hard to find because people are cooking at home more (dunno).  I can do without them.
    • Padres occasionally but not heavily rooting. Their record of course wasn't great last season so guess I just like pain.  They are local for me and about as far removed from the Orioles as possible. So not many conflicts of interest.
    • I would definitely take a lot more liberties if I was running a sim. Davis would return to his 2013 form or I would cut him.
    • I loved Sparky Andersons total WTF attitude towards defense his later years in Detroit.  Tettleton was a catcher/DH with the A's and the Orioles, occasionally playing a game or two in the OF or 1B in a pinch.  In 1993 Sparky played Tettleton at first in 59 games, at catcher in 5, in RF 39 times and 18 more in LF.  More or less repeated that in '94. By modern calculations he was somewhere between below average and "Mark Reynolds at third" at every position.  But who cares.  They led the league in runs, OBP, and were 2nd in homers.  They had a winning record despite just missing allowing the most runs in the American League.
    • By the way, I started this thread to post a bunch of cool and interesting stuff about the minor league Orioles.
    • I'm going to use this thread to post interesting things about the minor league Orioles that played in the Eastern League and then the International League from 1903-1953, with the exception of 1915. They're kind of the forgotten heroes of Baltimore baseball because anything that's not Major League is sometimes treated like it didn't happen. So even the 1890s Orioles get Hall of Fame plaques, while the seven consecutive IL champ Orioles are rarely mentioned at all. My first bit will be on the 1925 Orioles, the 7th of the seven consecutive IL champs.  After the '24 season Jack Dunn finally relented and sold Lefty Grove to the A's for $100,600 (about $1.5M today).  In '24 he'd gone 26-6 for the Orioles.  As an Oriole Grove went 108-36 in parts of five years. But not to worry, those 26 wins would have been fourth on the 1925 Orioles. Tommy Thomas, who'd pitch for the White Sox for years after leaving Baltimore, threw 56 games, 354 innings, and went 32-12.  George Earnshaw started 41 games, pitched in 53, threw 332 innings, and went 29-11.  And sitting in the back of the rotation was Jack Ogden who only got into 51 games, 327 innings and went 28-11. 89 wins out of their top three starters.  The 2019 Orioles got 28 out of theirs.
