I like Scott as a radio personality. But, boy is he a blunder machine.

Maybe he was leading off

Never seems to get the score right.  Thank goodness for the bug in the corner!

Even with all of the rule modifications, he does know we're not on 60', 9-10 diamonds, right?

Scott cannot say the words "Rio Ruiz" to save his life.

Make the swap right now as far as I’m concerned. Garceau’s got a face for radio anyway, unlike Newman.

Was going to say the same about Bordick on the theory that nobody could possibly be worse. 

Most charitable interpretation of OP is he is going to miss Joe Angel, in which case I don't disagree, but I look forward to seeing what Melanie can bring.

Ah, that is awesome.  Can't get over the air radio where I am in Manchester, MD.  WTTR comes through a little, but painful to try to listen.  I so wish we could get the FAN out there. 

Wow, that's a shame that the Orioles' radio network doesn't cover the entire state.   Has it always been like this?

Yeah I wanted Garceau to be good because I'm a fan of his radio show. But he always messes things up and just seems not to bring a ton of energy which isn't great for games without fans.

I listened over the weekend.  It was weird not getting Angel and Manfra.

    • 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.
    • There is no real reason to trade Galvis or Severino if they will no bring back a prospect.  I doubt they will.    I think Elias will have to be blown away with an offer to trade Santander.     Cobb and Mancini will be on the block if they are healthy and productive at the deadline.
