Means nothing imo if the Orioles are not winning. You can take shots at the Nationals but they are winning, and are a better ran organization than the orioles. 

You sign up to this forum just to defend the Nats?

Bizarre to do it in a thread about broadcasters that have nothing  to do with what's going on in the field. To say that the quality of the broadcasters is dependent on winning is nonsensical.

It should be much easier to broadcast for a winning team.    It’s less work to keep the audience engaged.

It would be interesting if they broke it down by broadcaster. The Orioles do have some excellent broadcasters with Thorne, McDonald and Palmer leading the way.

Your reply means nothing since wins/losses are irrelevant to the article.

Of course we all want the O's to win... take a deep breath. It's going to be a long road back to contention.

I live in the giants/a's tv market.  I have to admit - I find both of their TV teams very enjoyable and entertaining to listen to.  The Giants have Mel Kuiper and Mike Krukow.  The A's have Glen Kuiper and Ray Fosse.  The former players have great insight into what is going on with strategy and they have great anecdotes and stories of their time playing ball.  Both of these teams would be high on my list.

I also think Brian Roberts deserves a mention here as well.  I enjoy listening to him as well.

A funny note - When these teams have played the Orioles and Jim Palmer is in the booth, both of these broadcast teams have talked about his greatness as a pitcher and both have made mention how Jim is quick to tell them he never gave up a grand slam in his pro career.

Every year I try to figure out what blackmail Santangelo has on the Nationals.  He is the worst, and he knows it.  I remember watching one game where he was talking about all the hate he gets.  And he had a cup of coffee in the bigs.  Was excited just to hear Michael Morse get a chance and not have to hear Santangelo once.

Say what? If somebody doesn't like your opinion, they have every right to reply to it and offer their own. That's kind of how message boards work.

Ironically you didn’t like an opinion here and yet felt compelled to reply to it. 

Thank you for your input, Mrs. Santangelo.

    • I agree that most of these guys are completely replaceable...but it would likely be trading better players than these to get players that can probably be picked up for nothing.   Not sure what or who you think the Os should trade.
    • I cannot imagine how Cot’s projects Sanchez at $4 mm.   We’re talking about a guy who was non-tendered in 2019, was signed to a minor league deal by the Giants and later released, then was signed to a minor league contract by the White Sox and released again.    If the O’s offer him any kind of major league deal he should jump at it.
    • Who said anything about teams taking on these players?
    • You really think there are teams out there that want to take on these guys and go to arbitration with them?
    • I have zero desire to see Mullins get any amount of significant playing time and I have serious doubts the Os do either.  He has a spot on the team as your 4th/5th OFer type guy but he shouldn’t be anything more than that. Stewart I can see but, the team is telling us they will platoon him at best and his injury history isn’t exactly on his side. Not to mention, he does have an option remaining, so he could be in AAA.    Stewart brings a better walk rate but not sure what he can provide in the field (which isn’t much at all) makes up for anything else.  Not like Nunez is way older or super expensive. If Nunez was making 5+ million, it would be different.  But we are talking 2ish million here.  It’s nothing and his roster spot blocks nothing to begin the year. Again, this is 100% money driven...not roster management driven.
    • Right, but Stewart and Mullins get fewer AB's with Hays and Santander starting.  Also, all 3 bats you have listed are RH.  I'm not arguing the point that Nunez offers some level of relatively cheap production.  He does.  It's just that what he currently offers doesn't hold a lot of value.   My only concern, voiced by Frobby, is that a player, at 26, and after 2 years, may have another level in him.  The Orioles obvious don't feel that way about Nunez.  If Nunez is what he is, I have no problem giving his AB's to Stewart and Mullins.  If he has no trade value at all, then I can live with releasing him and saving 1.5M, or the difference between him and someone making the minimum.
