They must really like Valaika. 

He is the best backup SS the O's have that will not start the season in AAA.

Iglesias can spell Martin?????   That is a joke.   Iglesias will be the regular SS and either Valaika, Martin or someone else Elias adds wills spell Iglesias at SS.

Roch must have gotten that wrong.   If Martin makes the team, he will spell Iglesias, not the other way around.

Yeah, this makes no sense.  They just didn't drop a few million on Iglesias to "spell Martin."  I mean, I can spell Martin just fine, as you can see.  M-a-r-t-i-n.  I can also spell the female version just fine, too.... M-a-r-t-i-n-a.  Kinda tricky, but once you get the hang of it, it's not so bad.

Jokes aside, it really doesn't make sense.  I like Richie Martin, I think he can be a good backup middle infielder type.  And he picked it up with the bat in the 2nd half.

But Iglesias wasn't signed to back Richie Martin up, that doesn't make any sense.

But can the backup spell Iglesias?  I-g-l-e-s-i-a-s.

Haven't you learned your lesson about criticizing Roch yet?

Signing Iglesias is a solid move for this money. Sorry, Richie Martin is inferior offensively and defensively.

Would have preferred we did a deal like Jimmy Nelson then Jose Iglesias.

High risk/high upside, over high floor low ceiling. Maybe it's too early to be hoping those type of deals?

My guess is that Nelson could have gotten that same deal from any team and he chose the Dodgers.

    • You are welcome. You call it condescension, I call it factual truth.
    • I can't imagine the Angelos' are in much of a giving mood after losing the MASN court battle with MLB.  Unfortunately the little guys will pay the price.
    • Plus he gets a chance to stick it to the Steelers at least twice a year.
    • We’re 2-4 in mine. Do you know how we can get Mancini back in the sim? Will he be back at some point this season or can we make it happen? I couldn’t find him in the game but I’m still learning it and may have missed an injured list or something. 
    • More testing of the treatments will be a benefit in the long run - whether it be the combination of Chloroquine and Z-pack or something else.  Get the treatment out there and it will reduce quarantine times and make the virus manageable.  Then work on the vaccine that could actually come in the fall.  It is being fast-tracked more so than in the past. https://katu.com/news/coronavirus/fast-track-coronavirus-vaccination-request-to-go-to-fda-for-approval
    • This is a tough one. Ever since we drafted Hollywood I've thought AB signing with us could be a possibility. AB has not been the same since he took the vicious hit in the Bengals game.  Why ? Concussion? I can't remember what the diagnosis was after that game.  It almost seems like a storybook ending for AB if he goes to the castle and meets with the Ravens top brass and I mean top brass from Bisciotti to Cass to Harbaugh to DeCosta to Ozzie and Lamar. Bisciotti has said he would like to copy or be like the Steelers and certainly would be if they signed AB.  Would other vets like Thomas and Campbell be able to keep him straight?  In some ways I can see us being the perfect fit for him. We have a great clubhouse and somehow Harbaugh is able to click with players.  He praises them and makes them feel important. AB definitely needs stroking and praise due to his huge ego. Big Ben and Tomlin didn't stroke him and didn't click. Gruden and him didn't click but that was no surprise and the Pats clubhouse was probably like walking on eggshells with Bill B in charge. If the top guys talk to him and are comfortable I am comfortable.  I can see in a way Lamar and him clicking with Hollywood around. He knows what it's like playing at M & T and probably is smart enough to know he could make our solid offense even better. Super Bowl ?
