Really nice tribute, Tony. Also good call on how he always knew if someone that was banned came back with a different username. Haha it was like a sixth sense he had. 

Lol, it really was. He would tell me, this is so-so and he's back, what do you want me to do? Or sometimes he would just re-ban them depending on their violations. He was the best at that.

So sorry to hear this. I never got to meet him in person. But the O's have lost one of the great ambassadors for their brand with that passing of Mr. Williams.

 

God bless you Weams, you will be missed!

I'm very sorry, Denise and OH folks, to hear about Michael's passing. He was a very sweet man and kind soul -- may his memory be a blessing to us all. Denise, you and your family will be in our prayers.

--Nick

I didn't want to start a new topic for this so here it is. I never was good at deciding what belonged inside a thread and what should be its own topic. 😕

I'll be updating information about the memorial service on the site below, once arrangements get set, but it won't be until later this year. I'll somehow get that onto the OH site as well. 

I miss him so much, but have really felt all the support that's come through here. Thank you all so much.

Weams Obituary and Event Information

I had a chance to read the obituary tonight.   It was beautifully done and I learned a few things about Weams that I never knew despite our long association.   I’m still having a hard time believing he’s gone, but comforted by knowing that the impact he had on people will live on.

    • He pitches with an attitude. I like that.
    • One thing we have in abundance that others do not is opportunity. We have the ability to give these players time to see if they can figure it out. In two years, the bulk of our top talent will be ready to join the club. This year and next will be dedicated to finding out which pieces fit into the mix of what we have already drafted. The rest will come through pulling out the checkbook to fill the spots we need to be a World Series winner. I’m glad you guys are waking up and getting comfortable with the realization that we are two years away. It takes patience but that patience is going to pay off. Also, invest in HMBL. Thank you.
    • 2011-2012 saw a 24-game improvement. A lot of that was was lucky pick ups(Hammel, Mclouth, Saunders) and calling up Manny. In 2013, we regressed to 85, which is probably a better indicator of how good the team was without the luck we had in 2012, but it is true that we can add 25 wins in 2022 without ruining the damn “Plan” We need to have good seasons from our prospects, and if guys like Mateo win a spot, they have to produce. Can Mateo give us a 2 WAR season? I don’t know. He hasn’t, but the potential is certainly there. Tanner Scott never has, and yet we keep throwing his lame ass out there. Chance Sisco was awful from day 1, but we kept him for way too long. No reason not to give Mateo a chance.  but I digress. If 2-3 of our high prospect arms meet their potential, if we acquire a good infielder, Santander is healthy, and Good and AR come up quickly, then sure we can. That’s a lot of IF, but it’s neither impossible, nor even improbable. Its all a question of whether Mike wants to wait.
    • I don't disagree with that conceptually, but I don't think it's going to happen simply because I don't think other teams will pony up the kind of return we'd need to justify trading Means, and for the same kinds of concerns that make me open to trading him.....that I don't trust he'll be able to perform at the same level he's presently seen as being. 
    • I think trading Means and leaving Grayson without a veteran in the rotation is not a good move.   So acquire the veteran starter first then maybe it makes more sense to trade Means.  Frankly, I don't think it going to happen.
    • Spent some time the other night looking at other rosters and Miami, Texas, Atlanta, and San Francisco looked like the best bets for dealing Mullins. And the kind of prospects SF could deal from didn't wow me. Same with Philadelphia. Roll Tide's suggestion of Jung/Winn seems like a reach to me, but that would be a great deal.
