Did Andy and Tony Meet?

Recommended Posts

The piece will be out some time tomorrow.

It's over 9,000 words and in the end, you will be able to make up your own mind. I'm sure some will be be disappointed, and some will be surprised. Some will think I didn't go far enough while others will questions my "sources".

In the end, I never called this an expose, and I never wanted to actually do this piece. I've spent an unbelievable amount of time talking with people (more than anything I've ever done for the site), digging up information, and generally trying to get this story out correct.

I'll let you all judge whether it was worth my time.

I'll let it stand as the best job I could do.

I may be guilty of being the first to call it an expose...and regardless of the material, I am sure folks here will appreciate the work and effort to get it out correct. Best wishes for you as tomorrow will no doubt be an exciting day.

"The best Tony can do" has so far netted us the greatest Orioles website for news and commentary on the planet. Knowing that, I have all the confidence in the world in this project.

I have no doubt in my mind that this will be a solid piece of journalism that may serve as an expose to some, and it may serve as preaching to the choir to others. My estimation is that it will trigger a substantial response in anyone who reads it, though.

To be honest, I haven't been this excited about the Orioles since opening day this year.

Just knowing that this story is coming has my interest peaked. :D

Look forward to reading it. I'm curious if it would have been significantly different before and after the McPhail interview. I would have bet that it would get softer after AM had a chance to provide his spin.

It would have been irresponsible for Tony not to have spoken with Andy if he was willing, which MacPhail apparently was. Moreover, I am sure that Tony gave him the opportunity to respond to what he had heard.
