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

Recommended Posts

Long time lurker here who has always appreciated the contributions of weams.  Just said a quick prayer for comfort and healing.  My father also is going through stage 4 kidney cancer, so I know what that entails but also that it is amazing what treatments there are now.  If he is reading this, I would recommend joining the community for kidney cancer on Smart Patients.

Dear Weams: I haven't been visiting the Hangout much recently and somehow missed this thread until just now. Your love for the Orioles community, sense of humor and fairness, and generous spirit have always been  why the OH remained a quality place. I doubt that without your major influence I would have returned to it year after year. I send my deep gratitude and best wishes for your health and continued blessedness!

Michael:

I only met you once in person a few years ago, when the stars aligned and I was able to attend an OH game. But when I did you made me feel like I was meeting an old friend. Stay strong, and I look forward to seeing you again soon at another game!

This thread is never something I thought I would read. 

I’m handling things ok but have some current limitations.  I will have immunotherapy as treatment and many of those should go away.

Between Chuck Boemmel and myself you should not see any degradation on game recap coverage. 

Many of you are among my best and oldest friends.  If you have my email feel free to use it.   Many of you have the one and only phone number as well. Ask for it if you want it.

I love you all and let’s enjoy this great Orioles season. 

First off, I am honored by the confidence @weams has in me.  My promise to all of the many Hangout members is to try very hard to live up to the high standards he has set for this site and coverage of the Orioles.

I appreciate all of you who read our Game Recaps and welcome any suggestions and interactions on my work.

It’s not like you’re hard to get along with. We had chatted on here quite a bit and been from the left coast where my wife is from we have a lot of things to discuss I look forward to catching up sometime again and thanks for posting in this thread

    • Yeah, so I’ve held off telling the story about my interaction w/ Jones, but he’s no longer an Oriole, so.... I posted years ago about a hitting clinic he held at SDSU w/ Harold Reynolds. It was a fun time for me and my daughters taking a road trip from Los Angeles.  After the clinic was over we, of course, went to see about getting something signed or a picture. We waited patiently as he signed for a number of people and then I approached him to get a picture of him and my girls. He started to lineup to do so and then balked at the idea, saying it would take too much time, at which the expressions of my kids faces visibly dropped. Disappointing to say the least, but I explained it away with some such fatherly bs.  I never mentioned it in the thread about our trip because I knew there would likely be disbelief or outright anger for me calling out an Oriole player, especially Jones. After all these years, it wasn't a huge deal, but yes, I lost respect for him. As far as I know, Palmer has always been great with not only fans, but going out of his way to be available for them. There’s also no one else I’d rather listen to call a game than Jim Palmer. His stories are part of that.
    • Well Machado should’ve been dealt the offseason before but somehow we were still going for it with a team that actually won 47 games. The only thing bad I could say about what DD did in the Machado trade, is that he should’ve gotten more A ball players versus trying to get players that were closer to being ready. However, The Dodgers had just spent $50+ million on Diaz, Pop was 20, and Kremer was leading all of milb in SO. 
    • Unless the CBA changes there is zero incentive to call up AR before June 1. It’s not like another 60 days of “bad” PR is going to hurt this franchise any more. 
    • Oh, absolutely.   The O’s were leading the division by six games when this news broke.   It stung pretty badly to lose Manny in that situation.   As it turns out, the team played well without him for the rest of the regular season.   But we’ll always wonder if he could have made a difference in that KC series, if he’d managed to rehab and return to the field.     Some posters faulted him for not acceding to the team’s wishes.   Not me though.  
    • Win 3 Cy Youngs, 3 World Series and a WS game in 3 decades and you can be as arrogant as you want.   Palmer rules.
    • So trade our best performing position player in order to get prospects that don’t usually pan out… i.e Machado deal  Pass
