What can bring the fans back?

The O's have allowed fans to bring your own food for some time. We don't load up on the concession stand stuff, though I almost always have one hot dog. Our family has picked up a box of chicken quite a few times, often from that local chain that doubles as a convenience store like Sheetz (don't know why I'm blanking on it - but I'm not from MD). And we've brought  our own water in but leave room to buy a beer or sometimes a mixed drink from that rooftop bar. 

Royal Farms?

Yes, that's it. I kept wanting to type Holly Farms, but I knew that was wrong. After dropping MASN this winter, the oft repeated brands are slipping from my memory (save National Lumber aka NashLumber - that one sticks).

This is a difficult question, obviously, and is likely a combination of many things, but a very important question.

I get a 13 gamer every year, and some days are better than others, but there has been a lack of energy at the stadium for the past 2 years it seems.  Maybe winning does cure all, but that is unlikely for a while.  New guys have to build new fans, and that will take time and hustle.

 

I am hoping they eventually take a page from the Ravens and lower concessions for everyone.

 

They need to improve the sound system and make the music and chants more fun and engaging...

 

Winning will obviously help...

Two words. Free beer. We're gonna need it to numb the pain for the next 3 -5 years.

Chris Davis chasing down Bonds single season homerun record. 

On second thought, Davis might have a shot at the record if he is allowed to follow rules from the “All Drugs Olympics” sketch from way back on SNL.

If you’ve never been to Baltimore why would you even care about Eskay and Natty boh? Also, why won’t your wife let you go to Baltimore?

My wife can’t handle planes and we never want to be apart. So unless something surprising happens, i won’t go without her and she won’t go so that’s that.

regarding the traditional Hot Dog and Beer, who wouldn’t miss them? I love that OPACY hasn’t been changed to Bayer Asprin field or Kia Motors Park.

It’s tradition, and I hate it when tradition is tossed in favor of a few extra bucks.

They don’t have to win to get me there but they have to be exciting. Last year wasn’t just about losing, the team had no fight in them at all.  Every game was like watching a bunch of robots going through the motions. Effort goes a long way, and last years team straight up didn’t show it.

1) So you do have a price.

2) I wonder how many acronyms have become hallowed traditions?

    • I give you points for saying Please.
    • I don’t think the backup NEEDS to be anything.  Why does the backup have to be outstanding on defense?  Is that in the rule books or something?
    • Yes but the backup C needs to be outstanding on defense(Catchers who offer good offense are starters.)But neither of our current guys is a qualified backup. If AR were here now, he would still need a better backup then the two we have.
    • Why are we replacing Mancini? Rosario is probably a better defensive player than any LFer we will put out there but it would be dumb to spend money on an OFer with Diaz likely up.     This, again, goes back to the same type of conversation that has been had about Nunez.  From an offensive standpoint, Nunez and Rosario are similar, so you wouldn’t pay Rosario a lot more to DH when you could have just kept Nunez. And you wouldn’t clutter your roster (the argument used against Nunez) with another COer when you have so many options available both now in a few months into the season. In other words, couple our roster situation with the team unlikely willing to spend money and you can essentially lock this thread because there really isn’t much to talk about.  (Not saying mentioning him is bad, just doesn’t fit into the Os plans in anyway)
    • Yes, it is a fact that Mullins performed decent in a very SSS and that Hyde made those comments.     It also a fact that Mullins was a terrible player for the several years before that. It’s also a fact that he is 26, so while he is young, he also is at an age where you don’t expect guys to start getting a lot better.  Another fact that his OPS was driven by bunt hits.  That’s a skill, no doubt but not one I would want to rely on year in and year out as a reason a player hits for a decent average and gets on base at a decent clip.  
    • Well, the pitching did improve in 2020, albeit in a much smaller sample size than normal.  I think some of that stuff is overblown for the C position and these guys could help the pitchers by hitting better than a lot of C and contributing to scoring runs. They are all a stop gap for Adley anyway.
    • I would at least wait until he is actually nontendered before being interested. No way we would want to pay $9M for another OF. He could be a good replacement for Mancini while we are waiting for Kjerstad.
