He can go north with Martin.

He can go north with me.  50 wins might be out of reach.

Olney saying the Orioles could be in the Addison Russell market.

 

Well, I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison
And I went to pick her up in the rain
But before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
She got run over by a damned old train

We’ll flip him next December at the non tender deadline.

I'm definitely in the camp of people who think people should be given second chances, but in today's environment that seems to be a controversial opinion. After reading Epstein's statement, I wouldn't be opposed to it, and Hyde could maybe be a character witness. I just feel like the negative PR from it wouldn't be worth it, especially after we got rid of Villar.

Plus stole your dog and

Quote

dug her key into the side
Of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive
Carved my name into his leather seats
I took a Louisville slugger to both head lights
I slashed a hole in all four tires
Maybe next time he'll think before he cheats

Yeah, I really don't care.  Long ago, I stopped looking at athletes as role models and examples of how to behave.  We were fortunate and blessed to have a guy like Cal Ripken...and for the older folks around here, Brooks Robinson.  Unfortunately they can't all be that way, though.

I'm not super sold on Ripken, either. That guy's too boring to not be hiding something dark. lol

The only thing I ever heard about Cal was actually about Kelly's alleged affair with Kevin Costner

The O’s are still going to lose at least 95 games next year. I just hate how they’re not even trying to make the 2020 club better for the fans. I’m not asking them to try and contend. But don’t make it unbearable. Why should I re-up my season tickets? I agree with Tony. I hate how cold and soulless organizations become when they’re rebuilding. It is the sheer definition of tanking. And people wonder why attendance is down and apathy is king. And I like Elias, btw. It just sucks.

See, I'm just the opposite.  I couldn't care less about whether we win 62 games instead of 57, and we're 10% more bearable to watch.  Just get us back to competitive baseball as quickly as possible.  

These are losing, throw away seasons, and are not important in the least outside of how quickly we can rebuild and get back into winning again.

    • You should change your name to Crab Supreme!
    • I bet they do now.  I guess they want as normal as possible situations.  Plus when you usually taking BP the pitcher not throwing that had so little follow through.  If you want normal pitching it makes the screen a bit harder as pitchers come down the mound pretty far on follow through.
    • Most restaurants will answer you honestly when asked where there crab meat comes from. If you are considering opening a restaurant that serves crab, you'll need to understand that some customers can tell the difference between the ill-flavored Phillips garbage of mixed species - primarily Mud Crab (Portunas armatus), the flavorless Venezuelan crab meat (which can be of mixed species also) and fresh, steamed callinectes sapidus, especially from the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries...even when covered up in crabcakes or Crab Imperial!Straight from the container, most can easily tell the difference. People who grew up eating fresh steamed Maryland blue crabs tend to have a more well-hone ability to discriminate between the real deal and the pretenders.  I know about Phillips' farming operations in the Phiilipines, India and Indonesia. They have tons of customers of their crab-product throughout the state and even the country. There's a Bourdain episode where Tony hangs with Detroit firefighters who are purchasing exorbitantly priced, metal cans of pasteurized, Phillips-labeled crab-product. Later, he makes them a delicious and inexpensive beef stew that the entire station house raves about. It's important to understand that Asian and Venezuelan crab meat are treated with the anti-bacterial, Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, leaving the meat bleached white, odorless and favorless. That may be preferable to falliing victim to the annual outbreaks of Vibrio parahaemolyticus bacterial infections from Atlantic equatorial crabs. By contrast, steamed, non-pasteurized, non chemically bathed fresh Maryland blue crab meat has a deep, rich aroma, almost musky with small yellow flecks of the epicurean delight, "crab mustard." I guarantee you that if I placed all three meats plain in bowls, you could easily taste the difference. You could smell the difference, even! BTW: all west coast crabs including those from Peru are from other species which are inferior to callinectes sapidus. No "beautiful swimmers" being caught in the Pacific. However, some have crossed the pond via bilge water and have made new homes from the Mediterranean shores of France to Norway. Certain industry secrets are hard to keep. It's not hard to find which restaurants purvey the crap. Sadly, you are more likely to get Asian or Venezuelan crab to U.S.A. -sourced blue crab when ordering a crabcake at Baltimore metro restaurants. If you want to be sure you are buying real fresh steamed blue crab, you can find restaurants who exclusively serve Maryland crab or others who serve Maryland crab in season, only substituting with Louisiana meat during winter months, copy this url: https://seafood.maryland.gov/true-blue-maryland-crab-meat/ Crab Hack: if you boil your crabs in salt water, I have a money saving tip for you -- Microwave a mug of water filled with salty popcorn. You'll never know the difference.
    • David Price of the Dodgers opts out of the 2020 season.
    • Salvador Perez said he has it but is showing no symptoms and could play right now. Padres and Twins confirmed a few cases. Orioles said they won’t confirm any, but Roch is doing good at putting out the names of everyone at practice.
    • I’d go to a packed Camden Yards right now to see them practice.
