He obviously was a homer and had annoying cliches, but I grew up listening to him on the radio and then later in life, on TV. For nostalgic purposes, he will be missed. I wish him luck.
And he had been with the Orioles for 24 years. It is not like the release of a AAA pitcher.
I don’t care what your opinion was of him I just don’t get waiting basically 4 months after the season to tell him he wasn’t back.
Now if I could see the writing on the wall I’m sure he did as well. That said I don’t think you do that to a 24 year employee.
