OL Alex Lewis Cut

Recommended Posts

Skura is locked in at center. It seems like they want Eluemunor to with the LG spot but he is terrible, hopefully Powers progresses quickly and can be a little bit better than terrible. It is absurd that LG and C were basically ignored the entire offseason even though it was a glaring weakness coming into the offseason.

I assume this is more an injury settlement cut than due to ability.  He hasn't practiced at all this year and was still being listed as rehab.  Was this his last year on his contract?  I think it was, and if so, may just have been a cut due to him probably not being ready to play this year (would have had to carry him or pull him off IR late in season and I think you only get to bring 2 people off IR).

The ravens save about 2 million for the cut because he was on his rookie deal and have a little over $10 million in cap space.

I think they freed up some roster space, speed up the transition to other players and position themselves in true racens fashion to be ready to improve the team with a late veteran cut.

there are going to be other camp cuts where hopefully the ravens can pull in a guard on the cheap that can be effective.

Traded to the Jets for a conditional 7th rounder.  That makes this better right?

It does but it’s a shame. When he first showed up it looked like he was going to be real good.

Powers should win the job.

Sounds like Powers has been pretty disappointing thus far.

A conditional 7th rounder I guess is better than a bag of deflated footballs.

    • 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.
