Wow! Feel like I just won and lost at the same time. Best to you and of course The Orioles. Your analysis and insights will truly be missed in this forum.

How incredibly awesome and sad at the same time.

Congrats Luke!  I can only imagine how amazing this must feel.

If I may ask, do you have a general idea of what you’ll be doing for them, that you can tell us without giving away state secrets?   Who will you report to?

Still processing this.   Damn, I’ll miss getting your takes.

It always sort of felt like we were stealing when Luke chimed in with analysis. Lol. I'm super glad he's getting paid for what he does now.

He really elevated the discourse here, so that's going to be.... tough. Haha

    • It isn't going to happen.  President says something different every day. 
    • Not a full mock draft, but a Ravens mock I just did: 1. Patrick Queen, LB, LSU 2. Brandon Aiyuk, WR, ASU 2. Kyle Duggar, S, Lenoir-Rhyne 3. Damien Lewis, G, LSU 3. Jabari Zuniga, EDGE, Florida 4. Van Jefferson, WR, Florida 4. Albert Okwuegbunam, TE, Missouri I would be very pleased if we could pull this off. Lock in a stud MLB and another home run threat at receiver with Aiyuk. Duggar gives us some depth at safety who can also slide up and play weakside LB on day 1. From there, shore up the interior OL, get someone who can chase down the QB, a reliable possession WR, and some TE depth (the only one I don't feel good about). Everyone has the ability to contribute, in varying degrees, starting day 1.
    • I still watch Daily Show religiously, and you are right, it is weird, but to me it is also better than nothing.  That is my approach on pro sports.  It will be weird if they start, just like it was weird to watch the O's/White Sox game during the riots.  I don't recall hearing any cussing, but its been awhile.  Sponsors/teams/television stations with contracts are losing money.  They want to clog that gap.  Players who are pending free agents don't want to miss a season or be ppd one season away from free agency.  I think everyone is getting a bit cabin fever and for players sitting in hotels playing their game, probably 6-7 hour days would be better than being stuck at home.   Am I sure its the right or smart idea? No.  Is it possible we start up and shut down again in a month? Yes.  Will I watch games if they start? Absolutely.

    • Saw that the Steelers have petitioned the League to add three rounds to the end of the draft this year to compensate for not being able to have in person meetings, missed pro days, etc. Do you guys like this idea?
    • Has anyone watched late night shows without audiences?? It has largely failed. Comedians, entertainers, pro athletes etc need a live audience for it to be enjoyable. The games will be nothing more than a scrimmage, get 'er done, adios. Players get paid, teams will get T revenue. Baseball (and other team sports) are not exactly good role models for hygiene. Spitting, throwing drinks, gum, etc around, and some poor dugout guy cleans up their shit. Social distancing?? These guys away from family are not going to sit in a hotel room and watch TV. A dozen or so games in AZ each day, night..... I think temps are commonly in the upper 90's +.  As Enjoy Terror said, what if a team member tests positive? Do you really think he is likely to be the only positive on the team? And for those that pity the overstretched finances of players, think about all the small businesses that are NOT likely to come back. Baseball will come back, the players and teams will once again make huge sums of $$$. This MLB plan, driven by owner billionaires will be an embarrassment to the game IMO.
    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970 the Baltimore Orioles defeated the Cleveland Indians 8-2 in front of 38,180 fans at Cleveland Stadium on Opening Day. Dave McNally stuck out 13 in a complete game effort.  He scattered four hits while walking just three. Frank Robinson went 2 for 4 with 2 runs scored and hit his first homerun of the year in the 9th inning. Davey Johnson went 2 for 4 with 3 RBI to help pace the Baltimore offense.   BOX SCORE
