Should we go after Jeff Luhnow?

In all seriousness though, I would be open to the idea of Hinch as our next manager if he doesn’t receive a lifetime ban...

God, no, not after this, and I think he sucks anyway.

Some team will give him an assistant job once his suspension is over. There’s only so many GMs in the MLB that have gone through a rebuild and/or won a WS. 

Everyone thought Beltran was some type of genius. He was a a cheater. He likely cheated as a player too. Same with Cora.

If you'll do that stuff, you'll do other things.

Got love how Craig pushes an agenda.  Some days I miss Shysterball, other days I don't.

I don't see how one thing has any relevance to the other.

You could argue both matters concern a win at all costs, do whatever maximizes profit without regard to collateral consequences mentality.    But I won’t.

Seems related to how Lunhow is a crappy person.

Remember when Jeff Luhnow felt on top of the world after acquiring Greinke? Yeah, things have sure gone south all of a sudden in a big way, that's for sure.

I wonder if the Astros will have to pay Luhnow and Hinch for the years they were under contract that were not covered by the suspension.

Nah, but I admit that the thought/concern crossed my mind (however fleetingly) that the Astros might try to lure Elias and/or Sig back. 

Have to believe there's next to no chance of that happening, though.

Wouldn't this come under "dismissal for cause"?

Roch was on 105.7 this morning and Haynie & Vinnie asked him that question.   He says he doubts it.  Elias is a year into the rebuild here with his fingerprints all over the entire organization, he doubts he would want to go back to Houston with the situation they are in now.   But he also said that anything is possible, he couldn't say there was zero chance.

I don’t know.    If MLB saw fit to suspend them for only a year, it might not be strong enough cause for outright termination.    But, you could argue it the other way.   And of course, who knows what their contracts said (if anything) about what constitutes “cause.”

    • Well, I got it and started a season.  And Alex Cobb had to LEAVE THE FIRST GAME IN THE SECOND INNING WITH A LEG INJURY.  
    • Never played organized sports.  In my youth, Dad was an alcoholic and Mom did anything she could to keep the family together.  I would just go off by myself with a piece of wood and imitate O's games.  I had every batting stance from each everyday player down to a tee.  And just like "Stankee Classics", the O's won every time. Fortunately, Dad checked himself into AA when I was 14 (?), and never had another drink for the remaining 25 years of his life.  And, it is passed down.  The other 5 siblings are drinkers, but only 2 are full blown alchies.  I haven't had anything in 10+ years and don't miss it. And probably that's why:

    • After I tore one of mine, before it was fixed, I went to a Virginia Tech football game. Big play happened, everyone jumps up, I land slightly awkardly and *bam*.  Shooting pain in my knee.  Agony.  That also happened after tear #2, when my regular doc was on reserve duty, and backup doc said "I don't think you really tore anything, just rest for a week or two and go back to playing soccer." Like a minute into my first game back, same thing, shooting pain in the knee.  Went back to the backup doc, got an MRI, and whatta you know, he said it was the cleanest ACL tear he'd ever seen.
    • In 1880 the average batting average of the 55 qualifiers was .256, and the standard deviation was 0.037. In 1893 the average was .290 and the standard was still 0.037 In 1941 the average was .282 and the standard deviation .033. In 2000 the average was .282 and the standard deviation 0.028. In 2019 the average was .272 and the standard deviation was .027. That may not seem like so much of a difference, but George Gore was 2.8 standard deviations above the (qualifier) average when he hit .360 in 1880.  Ted Williams was 3.8 when he hit .401, but he was a freak.  Tim Anderson was 2.3 last year. Since the peak of the 1990s average have fallen about 20 points, while the spread continues to tighten up as it has since the beginning of time.  As players get better the distance between best and worst gradually shrinks.  To hit .400 today a batter would be almost five standard deviations above the qualifier average.  I'm reasonably sure that's never happened.  Hugh Duffy was less than three when he hit .440 in '94.  Tony Gwynn was only at 3.48 when he hit .394 in 1994, and that was in a short season.  Just hitting .350 today is almost three standard deviations from the qualifier average. Yaz was about 2.6 above the AL mark in '68 when he hit .301.
    • Yup, I'll second that.  It's instant pain.  Then feels like you re-tear it every time you make that same move.  Torn both mine, both playing basketball, and then opted to hold off on surgery to play baseball with a brace on.  The push moves you make at 3rd are really tough on a torn ACL.
    • St. Mary's County, population about 115k, has an annual school budget of about $250M.  Or roughly comparable to the Orioles' annual revenues.
