Rich Dubroff: Joe Angel not returning.

Recommended Posts

Thank you Joe for your dedication to Orioles baseball! I grew up listening to Joe on the radio, and my dad still watches every game with the TV volume off and the radio turned on, mainly to listen to Joe. I'm going to miss his signature call at the end of each Orioles victory, "Orioles...are in...the win! column!"

I'm hoping Adam Pohl gets an opportunity to broadcast Orioles games. He has been calling Frederick Keys and Baysox games since 2006 and really knows the young players in the system.

No longer will Orioles fans hear “in the win column.”

Didn't get to hear that line much last season.  All the same, even if it means more Ben McDonald (which is great), this is a real loss.   Buona fortuna, Joe!

I take it this is a decision between Joe and ownership.  I doubt Elias is involved.

The article is not clear if its Joe deciding to retire or ownership deciding to be go another direction.

Stop rumor mongering. The guy is 71 and he hasn't commented yet.

Just because someone is 71 does not mean that they want to retire.    Joe's comment in the article sounds like he may have been thinking about cutting back but its not clear.

With what the O's are facing on the field I would not blame him if he wanted to not be a part of that.

Yeah, he's getting up there in age.  I hope the O's do him justice with a bobble head or a t-shirt night.  He is my favorite sports announcer of all time.  I love you Joe Angel.  Your sense of humor, your courage to criticize when necessary, your pure enthusiasm.  I can only assume you are a good man based on how you have handled yourself in your role for these past few decades.  O's Hall of Famer, no doubt.

Both you and weams with his quotation marks are suggesting in this thread that it is something other then retirement. We'll see but it's irresponsible at this stage especially when he himself said he could see himself hanging it up at 71.

It's always gotta be drama around here. Stop.

Sorry, I didn't know you were in charge of what is responsible to post and what is not.

I'm not. I'm gonna let you know what I think though! And I think that you have no actual reason to think this has anything to do with ownership at this stage. Why would you? Nor does weams,but he's gonna suggest it with quotes and plant that seed bc that's how he operates on this board.

 This suuuuuuuicks

I literally just had a conversation with my dad and we were saying the only reason left to tune into games this year was Joe Angel. 

 

Awful awful news.

1) It's not for sure anything is happening with Joe because it is not official.  It quotes an unknown industry source

2) Joe declined to  comment.   Which means he was asked and didn't want to say.

3) He has a year left of his contract.

All of these points are irrelevant. Maybe he's not 100% sure. People retire with contract years left all the time. He said he could see himself not coming back. You can't just be released from a contract - it's a contract! - so it would have to be his decision.

    • https://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/BAL/1991-transactions.shtml The deal happened soon after Winter Break of my 12th grade year at City.  '90-'91 were my two Tarp Crew seasons in which I was paid to watch Orioles games.   It felt like trying to win the 2 out of 3 decider, and keep the Why Not magic going after the 1990 flicker.   The Class of '91 Orioles nuts were enthused, but holy cow did the bad start ruin any optimism so so so fast. The next day Tettleton was dumped for Jeff Robinson, presumably as we needed to replace Harnisch/Schilling innings.  We did have Hoiles ascending then.   It's certainly pleasant to imagine Tettleton and the 3 ex-O's in the Ripken Supporting Cast once a few years of Camden revenues brought Palmeiro the 1st time and Alomar.   Could they have changed mid-90's Yankees/Indians eliminations? The 5 years out thing is a little squishy because Camden was about to make us temporary Yankees. I think Glenn worse by dint of talent v. money.   The worst part of Chris was the irreparable damage it did to retaining Machado for the statue run.  He would have had to persevere through 2018 like Ripken in 1988, but I think everyone significant but Yusniel and Kremer are here with Machado going towards his parallel to the Second Act of Ripken Good Teams coming in the next few years.
    • Finley and Harnisch for Davis is kinda like Jones and Tillman for Bedard.  Do you think the Mariners regret that one?  And we were nice enough to throw in a Hall of Famer as well. 
    • We didn’t have that option.  
    • It's already been mutating.
    • Remember, you can't just throw money at these impoverished 16 year olds.  You have to build a relationship.
    • It's good for Manny.
    • Ty Cobb maybe wasn't a completely terrible person, or no worse than some of his peers.  But he wasn't exactly a great guy.  He did some things that got him relative slaps on the wrist that would probably have resulted in jail sentences today.
