For What It's Worth...

Thanks for the info. So Gibbons and Payton sound like they are the contracts that would be eaten if they can't be traded and we know Gibbons has no value. McPhail has said he thinks and hopes it will be a sellers market and no player is off limits. I have no problem with any of those players being gone including Bedard IF he won't take a fair deal.

We may not recognize much of the coaching staff or players next year.

It could be really long year without Bedard being out there every 5th day. Oh well. We need to rid Arizona of about 3 or 4 of their prospects.

BTW...Not sure how much everyone cares but Trembley has impressed the hell out of everyone. Sounds like he could very well be a long term Baltimore style manager. His work effort is fantastic and his passion is even better. I am rooting for him.

That's a very rational plan and I'm encouraged.
I agree, even if they don't pull all of this off, the fact that it is the plan is fantastic. It shows that we finally have the brass in place that realizes that no band-aid is gonna fix this franchise, and actually have the balls to go down a rebuilding path.

A MacPhail/Trembley management team in charge of the Orioles could be the beginning of a turnaround in a lot of ways.

I think most of this board is too. I really like the fire and enthusiasm he brings to the table, it is something we have not seen in Baltimore in a while. What happened down the stretch was not his fault, and I hope he can be at the helm of the Birds for a while.

Thanks for the info as always, Belkast and Peace.

Thanks Belkast.

What are the odds of this team being entertaining/successful this season?

If all of this comes to be, we are looking pretty good at least by 2009.

My hope is that the odds of them being successful are very low, that would mean they are following the correct plan. That in turn, would make the odds of them being entertaining/exciting through the roof. I'd much rather watch a squad of highly talented young players grow than watch a bunch of 33 year olds sleep their way to 74 wins.

I think if all goes well we will have a young and exciting team. I think Trembley is the right guy in there for a young team. We might actually see some hustling this year.
