Potential bidders lining up, no indication ownership willing to sell

The lease news is the most important part of this IMO.

I should have mentioned that. 
 

I was never worried the Orioles were leaving but very important to note nonetheless.

This team being sold would be amazing 

Just remember, things can always get worse.

Remember not too long ago when folks were excited the sons were taking over?

Well the sons are better than dad..they aren’t good but they are better.

And I’m not sure it can get worse but I do get your point.

Ripken Baseball Ownership Group along with local investors would be great.

 

I’ll take Bisciotti and have him run things like he does the Ravens.

A combined group of Cal Ripken Jr, Steve Bisciotti and Kevin Plank would be fantastic.

 

Not that Elias should make or break a sale, but I do hope any new owner appreciates what he's bringing to the table for this franchise. He should be given the chance to see this rebuild through, IMO.

I only mention that because I'm not sure Cal sees things the same way. I really don't want him to be part of ownership based on my impressions of his old school approaches. I could definitely be wrong on that, but it's my read on him.

New ownership would want to negotiate their own lease... and/or investigate moving the franchise

Is anything in Baltimore open? How many years will it take to recover??

Hard pass. I don't want to see the Orioles take a hard turn into politics anymore than they have.

Bisciotti has allowed political ideology to be significant part of the Ravens' organization public persona. Whether I agree with his political stance or not, I do not want Bisciotti anywhere near the Orioles organization. 

Now I don't want this is turn political so there is no reason to talk about what the Ravens have done, but my preference would be to have an owner that is solely focused on providing the funding to make the Orioles a first class competitive baseball franchise once again! 

Regardless, if the Orioles ownership is preparing to sell the team, then we can forget about any kind of offseason pick ups this year (which I was not counting on anyways).

Plank/Ripken would be a nice combo.

    • Let's keep this positive and about Kline and his decision.  We have lots of posts to discuss Davis. Thanks.
    • He's just a very impressive young man who will no doubt end up doing great things outside of baseball. You can teach a young man better mechanics or how to spin a ball better, but you can not teach a young man the kind of moral courage and compass that Kline obviously has inside.  I will certainly be rooting for him.
    • The offseason is so boring, I would consider giving Jeff Conine a three year deal to be exciting news.
    • Lol.  It was definitely not what I was thinking about Santander. My opinion is I like Santander and like the Rule V story of him becoming good after being plucked from the Indians.  But if you can get a good return for him, you trade him.  That's the nature of the rebuild, despite our personal likes and dislikes of players.
    • What an incredibly annoying thing to read: The Orioles aren’t in a position to hand out long-term extensions, if that’s what you’re thinking.
    • Well, part of this is how advanced is their bat.  I can’t speak for a lot of the guys on the list but Kjerstad is supposed to have an advanced bat, thus why he was drafted high, regarded as the second best power hitter in the draft and amongst the top college position players in the draft.      So I stand by what I said.  If he is as good as Elias thinks he is, he will be ready sometime in 2022..if he’s not, it’s likely because he’s been hurt or isn’t as good as Elias thinks.  It’s really that simple. If he was 3+ years away, you don’t draft him #2.
    • We'll see what happens. I don't want to sound too negative. I actually like Kjerstad and hope that Elias truly was ahead of the curve in seeing a fundamental change in approach through team USA and early 2020. Plus I really like Westburg, Baumler and Mayo, so feel like the combined profile is deeper than it would have been if we just went Martin, who might not even be the hitter of Kjerstad. Anyway, for just about any profile, given Covid, I find it hard to believe they're helpful before mid next year. On net, that means they won't be a 1:1 replacement for a guy like Santander.  There's honestly a million ways to go that I'd be ok with. If the goal is really to build this team for 2023 and beyond, which I'd argue it should be, then I'm more on board with trading Santander and others. If I believed ownership would support a trade and replace (e.g., $$) strategy like SG and you are sort of implying we should do, I'd also be on board. If the goal is to replace from our OF depth, I think it pushes things back a year.
