Satire is tragedy plus time. If you give it enough time, the public and  the reviewers will allow you to satirize it ...... which is rather ridiculous, when you think about it.

 

LENNY BRUCE

George Carlin was a disciple of Lenny Bruce.

Carlin (and millions of others, including myself) are very grateful to him.

 

 

Lenny "Bruce" Schneider blazed a trail for comedians starting in the 1950's, and our world has never been the same.

If you can't get excited about Hays, Mullins and Mountcastle, not to mention the healthy returns of Mancini, Santander and Iglesias, throw in Rutchman, Hall, Rodriguez, Kjerstad, Diaz and Henderson in the pipeline, I suggest a Viagra washed down with that orange Kool-aide Too Tall (and I) are drinking.

Big Nelson Cruz fan?

I love Nelson Cruz, but not on defense. Endy Chavez’  defense was excellent, and yet Ron Washington left Cruz in left field...oy.

been a fan for 50 years...we always had a class act team...even when we sucked we still had a great announcer in Jon Miller that made the games interesting...and great players...now we got crap announcers and crap players...Austin Hays!...yeah right...Chance Cisco!....nope...Ryan Mountcastle?...yawn....Mullins?...gawd help us...and basically most of the pitchers are AAAA at best...so, why should I care about an organization that now is putrid but once was great...I need hope

I would love the Orioles if they were 2-160. I wouldn't be happy about it, but they are my team, for better or for worse ...... and I certainly would not be soliciting others for reasons for me to continue to care about them and root for them. I signed an emotional contract with my favorite sports teams when I was a little boy in 1971, and those contracts are lifetime pledges that are non-negotiable.

 

o

You lollygag your way to first.  You lollygag the ball around the infield.  You lollygag your wayto the dugout.  What does that make you?  Lollygaggers. 
 

What’s our record?  2-160. 

How did we win two?  It’s a miracle.

If you hold the shift key down when you type a letter it capitalizes it.

Oh my, I've been put in my place!

A basement joke, I've never heard that one before.

So funny.

 

For the record this board has posting standards and I was just trying to help a new member out.

I'd hate to lose access to your wisdom, I feel you have oh so much to give to the community.

Maybe you should get back to your "variety of life experiences" instead of just posting comments that intend to upset people who are mostly fans of a team.  There is nothing Ryan Mountcastle did this season to project him as a failed prospect.  NOTHING.  I am not ready to reserve a spot to go to Cooperstown for him but so far so good.  Austin Hayes despite going on the DL again did ok as well.  Of course your post declaring Manny Machado a failed contract after he had a MVP type season shows your baseball knowledge as well.

I bet you said the same thing about Jones, Machado, Wieters and the rest 10 years ago.

    • We have space for 15ish players and we have only talked about protecting around 7-10 guys...so yes, they easily have space. Of course, you do have to be able to field a ML team and dropping one of these kids off the 40 man exposes them in a way they don’t have to stay on the roster, like you do with the rule 5.  So, it could end up being riskier you put them on the 40 man now.     That being said, I think we have the room to make sure you don’t lose anyone you could regret.
    • I don't know what to say without seeing him, but I doubt he is protected. And even if he is picked, I doubt he would stick for the entire year. That said, if he really has turned some corners, then there is room. It may be at the expense of another prospect, though. 
    • Not sure if this was posted elsewhere, but I didn’t see it. Was two weeks before this thread.  
    • And the Rays announcers are really good. Much better than the buffoons who chatter during Os games
    • This is a really gripping series. I’ve never been so engaged by two teams I don’t really care about... although I want the Rays to win, of course. The Dodgers and Nats are the evil children of the NL.
    • It is in the last 30 seconds of this 50-minute podcast, but FWIW they had the Hartford (Rockies AA) play by play guy as a guest Nevin expert, and skimming Vavra at the end he said he thought Vavra would have had a good chance to make the Yard Goats this year (i.e., do the Low-A to AA double bump in 2020). The other Nevin nuggets were August 2019 Eastern League Player of the Month, and giving the near 1B only 2019 positional context as in part being driven by having Colton Welker as a teammate.    
    • Nice to hear the tidbits on Baumler from the Instructional League.  I know folks are going to point out the nature of what is reported is overwhelmingly positive, and they are right, of course.  Still, this last draft was performed with heavy analytics and without in person or in competition video for the spring 2020 season in college and HS baseball and without in-person workouts.  IMO, the positive comments are an early vindication of our draft strategy and the two HS prospects we invested big $ in with the expectation that they were essentially second or third round talents.  The early word from various quotes from Matt Blood is that Mayo and Baumler are who we thought/hoped they were or better.
