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.

    • If you only listen to one of these two, listen to the one above. This is pretty decent tho.  
    • How does anyone get a psychological boost from being left in long enough to get hit around?  He was up 6-0, in line for a win, coming off 42 pitches just three days prior, it was April 1st.  And literally the last two batters he faced were liner to short, and liner to first.  They took him out because he could go to the showers knowing that he pitched six very strong innings and was in line for the win.  That was the psychological boost, not leaving him out there gassed to give up a bunch of hits and runs.
    • Yep..really like Hays and what he can potentially bring to us. That being said, this is pretty much his last chance if he wants to be a starter in Baltimore.
    • Right now Hays is my favorite player on the team.   I like his enthusiasm and all-out style of play.    It has its downside viz. exposure to injuries, but it’s fun to watch players who play like their hair is on fire.    In terms of what he can be offensively, I think Jones is a pretty good upper limit and aspiration, unless and until Hays is able to refine his plate discipline in a way that Jones was never able to do.   To be fair, Hays has a 6.8% walk rate compared to Jones’ career 4.5%.    But, I think to be as good or better than Jones offensively, Hays will need to get his walk rate in the 8-9% range at least, and get his outside of the zone swing percentage under 35% (he’s at 37.7% for his career, Jones was 41.5%, league average is 30.6%). Hays should have good power but I think he’s a little short of Jones in that department.   
    • My expectation is for Hays and Santander to remain healthy and avoid the DL (or whatever it's called). That should go a long way to having a successful season for each of them. With that said, I'd be thrilled if Santander hit .250 with 30 homers and 100 RBI, with Hays hitting .270, 25 homers and 80 RBI. But is that what I expect from them? Probably not. I think my lowest expectation would be for Santander to hit .240, 20 homers and 85 RBI, and Hays to hit .250, 15 homers and 70 RBI. Anything less than that would be disappointing to me... or if they spent a considerable amount of time injured.
    • Per Baseball Savant, Santander’s hard hit % was in the 38th percentile, so below average.   https://baseballsavant.mlb.com/savant-player/anthony-santander-623993?stats=statcast-r-hitting-mlb I think SG is fundamentally right that people should not put too much stock in stats accrued over 37 games.    At the same time, like you I see Santander as a player who is still improving.
