The Mark Teixeira Watch part II

Recommended Posts

Hello Bigbird! How ya been? Obviously, I would like for both you and I to be hearing the same information. It sure would make things alot easier for both of us as well as the board. With that said.....I too talked to my guy today and was told AGAIN that we are still very much involved. He thinks it is pretty funny that we are not getting much positive press.

I still am very optimistic!!!!!! Now, I think it is really weak of all the crap that you are getting on here. It comes down to people wanting to hear what they want to hear. You are being treated unfairly. It also cracked me up reading the response that one of us is going to somehow rub it in the others face with the final outcome. I told you so???? Not from me and I can't see you playing that card either. I know you hope I am right just like the rest of the board!

You keep telling us what you are hearing. I have your back as I know that you have mine.

Okay....Enough of the ranting. Oh Btw....Did I tell you guys that Tex will be an Oriole?

Calm down guys that's still me being optimistic. He has NOT signed with us yet!!!!!!

You are my sunshine on a cloudy day. Just like Bob Turk.

Thanks for the update.

Just one question, are you as optimistic as ever? :)

There's a way to fix that. The Angels GM announced that he had an 8 year offer on the table, but didn't give the dollar amount. All that is heard from Baltimore, from unnamed sources, is we might have seven years as our offer. If the source wants more positive press, than be more forthcoming. He doesn't have to tip his hand but he can play it like the Angels did.

I didn't say he wanted to fix it!;) Actually I think it is preferred.

IMO (hope I don't get blasted for this too) I think the Angels and Nats showed their cards because they want some positive vibes. Meanwhile, neither the Orioles OR Boston's offers have been made public. To ME (again, just MY opinion) I think the Sox and O's are the real final two here.

I completely agree, it's between us and Boston, IMO.

It's not! That's very low from what I am hearing.

Ahh, the doc's back. Good to hear from ya Belkast. ;)

These last few days seriously remind me of "What about Bob". We're Bob, and poor Belkast is Dr. Leo Marvin. We just won't let the poor guy be.

Hopefully Tex signs with us before he has to hang explosives around our necks! :eek:

Cripes I hate for the O's to be culpable with the other teams in driving up the price of players into mega money as Tex's price is looking like Manny and Arod money. It's irrational. Tex isn't Arod or Manny and I hate dancing with the devil.

But, but...we're in a tight place. And we couldn't give the money to a nicer guy to represent us. Pay the man.

Yes! Yes! That is what I'm talking about.

If I'm the O's, I'm not sure I don't want this public. I think its imperative that they let the fanbase know that they pulled out all the stops. With the recent history here, and the animosity towards PA, just making an honest to goodness effort could go a long ways to winning over the people.

    • Why are you picking June 1?   Under current rules, they could call him up any time after April 14 and he wouldn’t be a free agent until after the 2028 season.  If you are suggesting they’ll defer him to try to avoid him becoming a Super 2 after the 2024 season, (1) I disagree they’ll do that and (2) the cutoff date for Super 2 changes every year, isn’t known in advance,and could be 2-3 weeks before June 1 or 1-2 weeks later.  In 2017, Josh Hader debuted on June 10 and he still qualified as a Super 2 after the 2019 season.  
    • 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.
