$. MASN, the orioles and major league baseball as a whole have had negative cash flows this past year, and it doesn't look like that will be improving this year. 

I think these changes were planned before COVID ever happened.    They hired the new broadcasters in February 2020 and announced then that Hunter wouldn’t be broadcasting games.   At that point, the handwriting was on the wall.

Makes sense unfortunately. Gary I wish they kept. That guy was a highlight of my teenage years and I'll miss him narrating my summer nights.

I will miss Gary.   But I missed Chuck, Jon, Joe and others when they left too.     The game goes on.   Just don’t give me someone awful.

(Nice guy, but I was not a fan of Reghi doing the play-by-play for the Orioles.)

Awful!  I was going to mention him but you beat me to it.  Was sort of glad when the O's told him, "SEE YOU Later!" :)

I will miss Thornes voice and his story telling.  But his lack of knowledge, not knowing players, pitches, etc...makes it not a big loss for me.

Garceau is kind of the opposite.  He has decent knowledge and a better understanding of things..he certainly knows Os history better.  But he’s dry as a bone.

I don't like Thorne being gone, but with the current roster of announcers none of them are as grating as Reghi was with his Tom Tucker announcer schtick play-by-play.

I miss Joe too. That's the problem this year for me was the broadcast was just boring. The Nats broadcasting crew are bad but entertainingly bad. It was just dry last year. Maybe that's just me

At least Chuck and Joe ended their careers with the Orioles. I always liked Gary and enjoyed his camaraderie with Palmer, but Jon was my man, and I wish Miller could have finished his career here, too. But there’s nothing so vindictive and unpredictable as a thin-skinned billionaire.

I liked this reply to Britt’s tweet:

Angelos and doing the right thing go together just as well as toothpaste and orange juice

I'm maybe the only person NOT on twitter, but when I read that it made me laugh.  ;)

 

Bring back Brother Lowe!

Did I miss someone posting about this?

In addition to laying off 11 employees in October, the Orioles furloughed 35 others, hoping to bring them back by Feb. 1 to begin ramping up for spring training. That won’t be the case.

Grondahl said the staffers’ furloughs have been extended to an undetermined date as the organization awaits more concrete news about the start of the 2021 season as the coronavirus pandemic continues.
