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.

    • https://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/BAL/1991-transactions.shtml The deal happened soon after Winter Break of my 12th grade year at City.  '90-'91 were my two Tarp Crew seasons in which I was paid to watch Orioles games.   It felt like trying to win the 2 out of 3 decider, and keep the Why Not magic going after the 1990 flicker.   The Class of '91 Orioles nuts were enthused, but holy cow did the bad start ruin any optimism so so so fast. The next day Tettleton was dumped for Jeff Robinson, presumably as we needed to replace Harnisch/Schilling innings.  We did have Hoiles ascending then.   It's certainly pleasant to imagine Tettleton and the 3 ex-O's in the Ripken Supporting Cast once a few years of Camden revenues brought Palmeiro the 1st time and Alomar.   Could they have changed mid-90's Yankees/Indians eliminations? The 5 years out thing is a little squishy because Camden was about to make us temporary Yankees. I think Glenn worse by dint of talent v. money.   The worst part of Chris was the irreparable damage it did to retaining Machado for the statue run.  He would have had to persevere through 2018 like Ripken in 1988, but I think everyone significant but Yusniel and Kremer are here with Machado going towards his parallel to the Second Act of Ripken Good Teams coming in the next few years.
    • Finley and Harnisch for Davis is kinda like Jones and Tillman for Bedard.  Do you think the Mariners regret that one?  And we were nice enough to throw in a Hall of Famer as well. 
    • We didn’t have that option.  
    • It's already been mutating.
    • Remember, you can't just throw money at these impoverished 16 year olds.  You have to build a relationship.
    • It's good for Manny.
    • Ty Cobb maybe wasn't a completely terrible person, or no worse than some of his peers.  But he wasn't exactly a great guy.  He did some things that got him relative slaps on the wrist that would probably have resulted in jail sentences today.
