Actually going to watch the post game just to see the format this year.  Zoom interview if Hyde?

It'll have to be a Zoom interview. There are no reporters there in Beantown either. But all the Zoom interviews leading up to today have been good. It's all good.

 

 

ALL the Zoom interviews:

Well good to see Orioles baseball back. This should be a fun year. Fun if you enjoy watching a AAAA team play at the major league level each night.

I'm not going to block you because I 90% like you.

But in other words it's FU I'll say what I want and if you don't like it FU. Got it.

Well, no, it’s not FU anything, it’s an acknowledgment that sometimes they are just so annoying I have to say something let me give you an example.

thw ball is put in play:

the PbP guy describes the action. Then Bordick or Ben comes behind him and ALSO describes the action. There’s no commentary,  he just re-states what has already been stated with a couple of additional Adjectives. McDonald frequently offers some good insight About pitching, but surprisingly little considering his background.

Anyway, You can just block me during game threads, no skin off my nose.

I want to see if anyone hacks into the Zoom interviews this year and asks an inappropriate question.

At least there isn't relegation

Imagine if there were. The teams that got relegated  last year would have no 2020 season and no opportunity for promotion to MLB.

    • Elias has the best job in baseball.  He makes great money and has zero expectations to win.     Why would he leave?  He is able to do a lot of what he likes with trades, scouting, international signings, etc....and he can do it while ownership is ok with a 60 win team.  
    • I tend to agree with this. There are a few scenarios that could play out for Elias and Sig. 1. O's remain owned by Angelos, penny pinching is the way of the future - he builds a nice foundation here but leaves when free to and another owner essentially asks him to do the same but also gives him resources. Thinking Philly/San Fran make sense from a market/spending perspective. 2. O's remain owned by Angelos, short term penny pinching linked to Covid - this would allow Elias to stay and be somewhat more financially aggressive likely starting in 2021/2022. It still leaves him in a less than perfect (e.g., not Red Sox/Dodgers) scenario. I could see him deciding to go to a bigger market team when he has that option. 3. O's are sold - everything's on the table at that point. New owner might embrace him and ask him to spend. New owner might want his own guy. Who knows? I really think Elias will be in demand when he's available. I hope whoever owns the O's don't let it get there, but I'd wager they do.
    • Well, that can be said today but it doesn't explain from his hiring up until the start of last season. I don't blame him...I think it comes from above him. I think he's done well working within whatever parameters he has.
    • It would be crazy to release Davis unless they know for an absolute certainty that 162 games will be played this year.
    • I don't know enough to know if this situation is on Elias. If he's doing what ownership directs him to do I guess the blank check can last indefinitely. Not being able to release Davis indicated that he's just here to build his resume. 
    • If you believe, like me, that he's created a much stronger amateur player acquisition and development program then you have to like what he's done. I also think the data will put all of our guys, major and minor leagues, into a better position to succeed.  I'm assuming that given whatever resources he'd want, eventually he'd be spending on free agents and active in the trade market. I'm also assuming that's not in the cards right now, which makes what he's doing on the minor league side even more important.  I am assuming. I don't know what the facts are. I just think he's the most capable talent evaluator and developer I've seen in Baltimore during my life. His leash is VERY long for me.
    • I loved this quote - how many people combine all of these?  RJ was a "larger than life" type of man and one we can all admire, IMO. “Being a Triple-A manager’s a difficult thing to do,” said Janish, now an assistant coach at Rice. “It’s just a difficult dynamic to kind of wrangle. He always did a pretty good job by being pretty blunt, pretty honest and pretty transparent, which I appreciated. Has anyone seen Buck's comments?  I remember that they seemed close.
