Hint: that was just an example of the headaches of spending half the year living out of a suitcase.  Even a gold-encrusted one.

And the biggest thing is the thought process when you are no longer playing. I believe that’s the biggest element.

As long as you give him ABs and playing time. He won’t even consider it.

Yeah, I know people like your manager.    But I’m definitely not that way.   I traveled a ton when my kids were small, and while I enjoyed many of the trips themselves, I really hated being away from my family so much.   Plus, I used up all my political capital with my wife.    It’s not like I could be on the road two weeks, come home and then say, “I’m going out to play poker with my buddies!”    No sir.

I remember going on a work trip for a week or so when my oldest was about a year old, my wife was pregnant with #2 and not enjoying it, and we were working on buying land for a house.  All the political capital was gone.  For a good while.

I was listening to 105.6. Haney said that the Orioles expecting Davis to be in Sarasota.

Said that they have placed demands on him this offseason. They didn’t elaborate on the changes.

Sounds like one final chance to prove himself next spring training. And there is a plan to hold Davis accountable and  just let him make up some story about working out with a hitting coach.

Or what they release him and have to pay him?

Pretty sure Davis can show up looking like Bro Thor and the O's can't do anything about it.

Well there is that too, but it would appear the Orioles are going to make one last good faith effort to see if Davis has anything left in the tank. I think it's a waste of time, and Davis at best is now a .200 hitter who might hit 20 home runs in 500 at bats.

I read it as The owners won't let Elias cut him so they are trying to get him to actually prepare for the season.

Give him another spring training to prove he is worthless and then cut him.

It's probably that, but getting Davis to put in max effort this offseason is going work out as well as herding cats.

I don’t. So that cancels us both out. Someone else will have to now make the pronouncement. 

 

BTW Brady has not been a VP since spring and is simply and advisor on strength and conditioning.

I advocated his position should be similarly that for a couple years. At the time, I thought even Head of Strength and Conditioning,. Or, whatever got him out of the baseball ops arena.

    • Heard this little ditty tonight out of work.   Brand new.  
    • And tanking/not being good got them Harper, Strasburg, Rendon and a host of other talents.  Even if they win, it's a legit possibility that Rendon and Strasburg both depart via free agency, and without them, they've got a team that will hang a few games around .500, if they get the bullpen right. 
    • Yep, it's pretty clear what they are doing now. They're all in for this year which is a little weird, because I honestly don't think they are that great, but I guess this is the end of their run so might as well go for it!
    • That is where the accounting chicanery comes into play.  They still paying debt service on the money Angelos loaned the team?
    • I think this misrepresents the non-payroll expenses of the team.    Per Forbes, in 2018 the O’s had revenues of $251 mm, of which $42 mm were gate receipts.    The team reportedly had operating losses of $6.5 mm, and player expenses (salaries + benefits) of $161 mm.   So, that implies that other costs were $251 mm - $161 mm + $6.5 mm = $96.5 mm.    That’s more than paying trivial rent and a few coaches.      Extrapolating those numbers to this year, let’s assume non-gate revenue was flat, gate revenue was down proportionately to attendance (but it may have been worse), and player expenses were proportionate to payroll per BB-ref.   That leads to the following estimate:      Gate receipts $33.5 mm Other revenue: $209 mm Total revenue $242.5 mm Less: non-player expenses $96.5 mm Less: player expenses $94 mm  Net income:   $52.5 mm That’s probably too high, given that Elias has been investing in technology, infrastructure etc.   We’ll see what Forbes estimates next spring.     But certainly Elias had savings available to invest in other areas.
    • I am glad this OP was not around in the 1960s...1969-1971...average attendance was never even at 14,000 with the greatest teams of all time.  Guess what...still here.  I will love to look back on  this thread and some of these posts in three or four years when we are back in it.   And when we get back in it AND the Nats are a power team...maybe a true rivalry will exist and maybe even a Beltway Series.  A true rivalry will fire up new fans in both areas.  Either way, the Orioles are going nowhere. Not in 10 years, not in 15 years, not in 100 years.   No other location has Camden Yards, Babe Ruth’s birthplace, Cal, Frank, Brooks, Eddie, Earl and MLB is not going to leave this iconic ballpark and its tradition empty and abandoned to move to ummm Nashville...lol. My niece also is the agent now for Harbor East and other new downtown condos...they are as hot as anything in DC or anyplace else.
