I appreciate Dylan Bundy for what he is

It wasn't anything amazing but for a $4.99 /lb cut it was very serviceable.

Like Bundy!

I brought it back around!

Except that he was a lot more than $4.99/lb and it took about six years to plate him (and he's still not done).

I would be pretty happy with this ERA though.

Well, fair point. He did make it back as a hitter so credit there. 

And then back as a pitcher again!  How many players have done a full-time shift from pitcher to position player and then back to pitcher?  I don't know of any others, off-hand.

Frenchie went hitter/pitcher/hitter.

Wow, I must have missed that or just totally forgot. Pretty wild.

So an episode of Matlock?

I like Matlock, Hallmark mysteries are a bit different, not too much courtroom stuff.

Matlock is just an updated Perry Mason.

Sorta.  Does he really count, when he may end up with fewer professional innings pitched than Stevie Wilkerson?

He made an effort to become a pitcher.

Judge it however you like.

Unlike Loewen he didn't make it to the majors all three times.

Sure beats all the GD reality tv shows on, right and left. :)

Make sure when you're done shaking your cane in the air you don't knock over the Victrola playing the Guy Lombardo music.

If we're giving love to Hallmark and Matlock, can I get a shout out for the Golden Girls? Best sitcom ever. Well, close.

    • 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.
