Prayers and good thoughts for weams (Update: Weams has passed on after watching the O's beat the Yankees)

Recommended Posts

Hopes and prayers Weams!

I have mad respect for your love of O's and knowledge of baseball. But, when you trolled the Blue Jays blog during the Dan Duquette fiasco, that was absolutely epic! Matter of fact, I recently looked up that pitching prospect that OH's wanted in return for Duquette (kid named Hoffman). Journeyman.

Roy, 

You are the class act of all class acts. Thank you so much for expressing how so many of us feel and are unable to say so beautifully. 
 

For others on this board, Roy also facilitated wonderful and remarkable gestures for my brother while he was in the hospital battling COVID and was incredibly kind and thoughtful to him in his recovery ! 
 

We are all brought together by our love for this team of ours but in a larger sense we have all become family here and we do love each other.

Hey, all. Sorry to hear WEAMS is having a hard time. I have some very fond memories of hangout games back in Baltimore. Here’s hoping for a speedy recovery.

Yes I’m actually doing a bit better which is kind of strange so maybe those thoughts are reaching someone 

I want to tell everyone who’s reached out to me either here or privately how much it means to me to be acknowledged as their friend.

When I saw that Roy had started a thread about you I feared the worst and my heart sank out of my chest and got crushed on the floor.

I'm so glad that you're doing even a bit better. I think about you often and am still sending all the positive vibes that I can!

Hey man, I’m here. 
 

Did you see that ass kicking we gave the Mets today?

My in-laws are lifelong Mets fans.  The only Mets post my sister-in-law posted on facebook this year was when they beat the O's.   Well, karma's a beyotch and so is she.  Returned the gesture.

June O's have already matched May's win total.  Hang in there, Mike.

Thank you so much for this update, Mike. Even just a little bit of improvement is great news to me.

    • Should have signed Ed-Rod? Yes. Matz? I think so, but I get why others wouldn’t and don’t blame them. 
    • There seemed to be a trend away from giving large contract to players over 30 in the past 5 years.   But not this year.
    • I wish I knew more about how much each side is willing to dig in. My assumption is that the owners aren't going to go for a payroll floor, and that the players aren't going to fight to the death for it. I think the players hold firm on the service clock issue, and that it will be changed. I guess the issue players care most about is being paid earlier in their careers, and I think that's not without merit. My hope is that instead of sweeping changes that the owners will resist, they tweak something a little more familiar to the existing system, like making players arbitration eligible quicker. These CBA negotiations are important inflection points that help keep MLB on the right path by giving equal power to the players and owners. They become toxic when the leaders of one or both sides go on a power grab. As much as it looks like both sides are digging in, I'm not seeing either side going on one of those power grabs here, which is encouraging. That doesn't mean this won't take some time. And it might well affect the 2022 Orioles roster. It appears our shopping list is a SS/3B on a short term deal, a veteran SP, and a backup catcher. While a shortened offseason is unlikely to meaningfully harm those pursuits since we're essentially dumpster diving (not pursuing free agents on long term deals), it could help us land a player on a short deal who is a victim to a last second musical chairs scramble. And I'm guessing the upcoming deadline will result in a few deals being made and a flurry of signings. It could be argued that if the O's are going to move Mullins or Means, it becomes much less likely after Tuesday. I'm speculating like mad here. Logic would suggest that the will to compromise will be great given the financial disaster of the 2020 season and the optics of a lockout during a pandemic. 
    • Did you read my thread on payroll ups and downs?  Overall, payrolls are down about $15 mm in the last five years.   That’s what they have to complain about.  
    • He had multiple arm injuries and was held to under 80 IP.  Maybe the combo of the injuries and a small sample size led to this. Interesting name to consider but you figure he signs a pillow contract with a better team and in a better park than OPACY.
    • It’s definitely a ton of money, just saying it’s not the same as it used to be.     These salaries are all relative.  The TV signed within the last few years is the richest ever for the sport.  The money is just pouring in and Toronto has a lot of cheap talent that allows them to spend like this. I wouldn’t have given KG this contract but I understand why they did.  
    • Maybe. But he’s gonna shove it up our ass for the next 5 years, bank on that.
