MacPhail to release web video for fans tomorrow

Recommended Posts

All he does is talk.

Plus eleventy billion. Who cares what he says? I can sit here and tell you I have a solution for world peace. What difference does it make if I prove it to you by signing Garrett Atkins?

McPhail should wear depends so he doesn't have to waste valuable time and resources going to the bathroom.

I also think lunch should be banned at the Warehouse, too much money spent on food and all that time wasted.

It's not just his time, but the cost and time of the filming crew and then the cost and time spent to edit and upload it.

All of that could have been put to better use.

It's a waste of resources.

Yes, because MacPhail just wrote, directed, and edited a sequel to Avatar.

You're being ridiculous, JTrea (though at this point, "ridiculous JTrea" is a redundant phrase). You haven't even seen the video, or know what it's about, and you're accusing MacPhail of letting it distract him from his GM duties.

I'm sad my Chatroulette joke didn't get more play. Is it because you're all old and don't know what Chatroulette is? Damn.

I'm actually interested in what they say. I think it'll be revealing (in sub-textual ways). I also think JTrea's opinions are like Confederate money.

I thought it was an excellent joke for the record.

Look I understand this isn't taking a ton of time or resources, but it is a waste regardless because it isn't going to change a thing.

As SG said, they need to do something.

Then why do you keep talking over and over and over, saying the same thing over and over and over. It isn't going to change a thing.

MacPhail made no promises. He just said wins and losses matter this year. He didn't say "playoffs" or even "above .500". He just said wins and losses matter more than they have in the past.

It's the fan who went overboard interpreting things the way way they did.

I agree with this - which is why he shouldn't have said it or should have followed it up with something with more definition like "I'm not saying that we need to be a .500 team or make the playoffs but if healthy and everyone performs to their abilities, I believe the team that we will field this year should improve on our win total from last year."

It's clearly an either/or. The opportunity cost is enormous here.

I'm just curious, are there actual people in the world who look to you for insight and advice on anything? Is there someone out there actually reliant on your remarkably off-kilter analysis? Can we start a fund for that person?

What if he comes out and says exactly what you praised the M's GM for. Something to the effect of: Listen, I am not happy with where we are and I am doing anything and everything I can do to make improvements, including making and fielding calls to other organizations throughout the day."

Will you heap praise on AM like you did for Jack Z? Because in that thread you wanted a GM who would come out and talk to the fans and tell us how he is working the phones to make the ballclub better.

Yea.but MLB GM isn't one of those jobs.

His job is to make this team a winner...Not give us a bunch of nice quotes while he sits on his butt and doesn't back anything up.

Talk is cheap...We should all be tired of the talk.

He can talk until he is blue in the face but the bottom line is he isn't actually doing anything about it.

I disagree. It's not the day to day job of the CEO of BP to do PR...but he's out there doing lots of PR during the Gulf Leak. The start of this season is the O's Gulf leak!

Bit** and moan all you want on substance of the video, but not about its use or the medium. I mean "COME ON" already.

    • The insurers did not pay.
    • Yellow is the only one you know for certain ends well. 
    • It's nuts how good we were in 2014 without Machado, Davis and Wieters. We still lose if the McClouth home run is called fair I think it was fine to use Ubaldo there, but Buck should have had a quicker hook It's down to Machado and Keeping Cruz over Davis. I think you have to believe we're World Series champions with Machado in 2014 to make that choice, and I can't say for sure that we would have been. I think I have to go with keeping Cruz over Davis, because it might have prevented the 2016 Ubaldo fiasco since Davis was awful in that game and Cruz might have scored us an extra run. Also, it would have been better for the teams long-term flexibility and could have helped the rebuild since we'd likely have been able to ship Cruz out for some good prospects
    • Boy that's hard. Machado might cause us to win a World Series. Would have liked to have Weiters and Davis that postseason. We definitely would have won then I believe
    • Mejia is essentially Richie Martin.  I do like the idea of picking up Robertson and/or Adeiny Hechavarria. Going into camp with Martin, Valaika, Sanchez, Ruiz, Urias, and one or both of Robertson/Hechavarria should get us through the season.  We also have Stevie Wilkerson back in AAA,  and I suppose Bannon and McCoy are of that age of do or die; so they could get a shot. If the O's can spend 40 million over 4 years on the Korean SS Kim and spread the cash 3, 7, 10, 20 to alleviate the bill while we shed Cobb and Davis (would back loading it be attractive to a FA since Covid my cut into salaries again?).  I think its a good gamble because we are starting to build enough young SS depth in the system, yet it probably won't be truly developed for another 3 to 5 years.  When Kim's contract would be up, we would hopefully have a couple options ready in AAA/AA ready to go. Signing Kim would allow use to take a chance at being competitive in 2022 and 2023 while we wait for the our next star SS to develop for the long haul. If they go big and sign Kim, I would go with Sanchez at 2B and let Valaika, Ruiz, Martin, and Urias battle it out for 3B and a utility role or two.  You could still sign one of Robertson/Hechavarria to come in for that roster battle.  In the end, if you could space out Kim's contract, the next two seasons could still be fairly cost effective.  You are taking the risk on years 3 and 4.  If Kim ends up flopping that 20 million in year 4 would be a bummer, but at least the last few years of Davis and Cobb have softened that potential blow a little bit.  If we strike gold on Kim and our young pitching and position players start blossoming, it could get exciting by next season, which would be 2 years early based on my initial predictions with the rebuild.
