You say that you have no idea what his opinion was, but then say you do know..i.e. you believe Brady didn’t care either way.  How do you know he didn’t have an opinion about it?   We are all guessers with opinions.

Some of us guess a lot better than others.

If I guess that you are leaving the casino with less money that you brought, am I really guessing?

Yes. With the Mike Mussinas, Paul Blairs, Elly Hedricks, Mike Cuellars and Dave McNallys. 

With the exception of Mussina, these other guys are not "statue guys" but they are WS winners in Baltimore.  Brady has been here a very long time, but even with his good times...and there were some very good ones.  He isn't on the level with the names above either.  Mussina didn't win a WS here, but is a border line HOF player.  Brady is an Oriole HOF'er, but let's be honest...

IF the rebuild works and let's be very generous and say we are presented with a 3-5 year window of being very good and win one WS.  Brady, unless he is still here and part of what is going on, just isn't going to be in the same class.  I'd put him with Roberts and Markakis and Jones as popular, very good and mostly a bright light during a mostly dark era.  And yes those guys especially will be well remembered and they should.  But if the Orioles are ever in a position to add to their WS bling...alot of names from the last 25 years will fade except for those of us hard core folks.  And I'm pretty sure that's how it should be.

Like Ken Singleton. 

Brady Anderson is most certainly behind Singleton (and several other players) in the pecking order of all time greats. He's much closer to getting a bobblehead than he is a statue outside of the stadium.

This. He was a good popular player during his time with the team, but not a talent (or person) that transcended his era. If you asked a casual young millennial fan if they knew who Brady Anderson was, I wouldn't be surprised if they said no.

Asking millennials most things is an exercise in disappointment.

Singleton, McNally,  and Cuellar  had 30, 25, and 29 WAR compared to Brady's 35. 

How many World Series rings did Brady have?

    • One of the more exciting parts of the team is the bullpen and the upside of some of the arms out there.  The Scott/Harvey combo is at the top of that list. Those 2 staying healthy and being consistent are huge for the long term.  They have a chance to be a dominant back end of the pen.  Bullpens are finally starting to be valued more in line with how important they are but I still think we underestimate the importance of a great pen, largely because WAR does a poor job of evaluating relievers imo.
    • Worst of all, I often have an allergic reaction to many hoppy / dry beers (and also dry wines). I don’t know what causes it, as I haven’t been willing to spend thousands to find out exactly why, but lagers are safe so I stick with those. I was so excited for the beer revolution in the US that really kicked in about 20 years ago, but am constantly amazed how you can walk into a bar with 30 microbrews on draft and there will be only one or two that aren’t IPAs. 
    • Both Holt and Akin where very interesting.   Good one to listen to.
    • Orioles Manager Brandon Hyde has tabbed journeyman Thomas Eshelman to take the bump in Sunday afternoon's Spring Opener at Ed Smith Stadium.  https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2021/02/orioles-notes-and-quotes-from-todays-workout.html
    • Holt and Akin were tonight's guests. Roch before the interview segments on crowded OF I did notice the tone of certainty in his banter about Santander going at trade deadline. Holt describing Valdez said it is as simple as he "does what he's good at a bunch", which reminded me of Earl's book and his observation almost nobody is good at everything.   I think I heard him ruling out 6-man rotation when he got that question, saying the extra rest too disruptive to pitcher's rhythms.  I am guessing we will more skip starts, or shorten seasons to manage that. Akin gave a "trust the process" quote about marching orders from Holt at AAA to use sliders and change-ups when normally he wouldn't, even if walks ensued.   He said he and DL Hall talk all the time.   Asked about the 60 to 162 part of this year's challenge, he shared a bit from a conversation with Kremer, where Kremer said he simulated 50-60 innings between Spring Training 1 and Spring Training 2, and that he also was generally working like that last April/May/June too.
    • You left out Sceroler and Wells. And Mattson too for that matter.
