Other Orioles Consultant Jobs for OH Posters

Recommended Posts

I could totally be the Emergency Operations Consultant for emergencies within the confines of the stadium. I already run a county 911 system 48 hours a week. A stadium 81 times a year would be a different ballgame that I'd like to take on.

I'm new here, but why would you have a Child Beverage Consultant? What's he going to do, tell kids which soda has less sugar?

Welcome.  It's a joke related to a discussion from a couple weeks ago.

Exactly.   It’s an inside joke from a thread a few weeks ago.

Almond Milk. It does a body good.

And apparently a major killer of bees for pollination.

I lurked here for awhile, so I'm aware. I thought the line about less sugar would give that away. 

 

Anyway, thanks for the welcome.

Something like half of all the honeybees in the United States get trucked to northern California in early spring to pollinate the almonds....and the almond rental fees make up about 1/3 of all US beekeeper's revenue. Eating nothing but pesticide tinged almond pollen for a few weeks is probably not the healthiest thing to be doing, then again I grew up drinking nothing but soda and I turned out all right.....🤨

I’m a little slow on the uptake.

I could be team shrink. 

Asking questions like....”What were you thinking swinging at that pitch?” 

“What was going through your mind throwing it there to that guy?”

    • I would just like to go to the store without worrying that everyone there is a potential person who will kill me.  
    • Kinda strange to say one of the least frequent posters on this board overvalues baseball. Did I suggest schools and restaurants are less important than baseball? No, that was your embellishment. We’re going to see tens of thousands of Americans die in the next two months. It’s going to be brutal. When we’re on the other side, the country will need to heal. Baseball has a part to play and in order to do that they need to make preparations. I don’t think it’s out of touch to care about and plan for what happens after the worst is behind us. I don’t expect that anyone is going to be particularly excited about playing games in empty stadiums. But it’s a first step. And it allows the game to be fully ready when medical advances allow the crowds to return. And that goes for the minor leagues too. On the other side of the surge the country will desperately need to get back to work. And that includes professional baseball. And eventually all the jobs it supports. And we’ll need the diversion. It’s a lousy plan, but I think better than the alternative, which is no plan. Just waiting, hoping, and losing time. I’m not surprised that people disagree. Particularly at this point in time. 
    • I’ve read most of the article, and it seems that there’s a desire to contract the minor league teams and remove the total number of players a team has in the system. The team likes it because it’s cheaper, and the players like it because older guys won’t be pressured by up-and-coming prospects, and can last an extra year or two in the majors. That implies overall quality will go down because there just won’t be as many prospects pushing for spots. I dislike all of this.
    • From what I read before they reached the accord they were talking about only giving undrafted guys a max of 10K.  That would pretty much force kids to college.
    • Presumably they would become non-drafted free agents and might be able to sign for more money than they would have gotten as a fifth round pick--unless MLB puts some restriction on how much teams can spend to sign non-drafted free agents.    Maybe there is a restriction on such spending already in place, but we never think about it because with 40 rounds it's not like there are many high-quality non-drafted players.   If there is no restriction then I would think that the teams with deep pockets could have a field day signing good prospects.  
    • Fair enough. But an apt potrayal of the "madness" you speak of, no?
