I'll wait to react to it until I find out who they hire to replace him... Brad Stevens?

Brad Stevens signed like a 75 year extension this offseason. His words and actions make it seem like he is very committed to Butler.

Probably not. Luke Scott told me all the brown people came from the same place though.

Funny but really Luke Scott would rather be with Latinos than Americans. At least when it comes to rooming up with them in the minors. I dont see how you can call him rascist.

Complicated

I can deal with this loss.

Why?

Because I'm gonna be in Baltimore tomorrow for the first time since Opening Day!

Hope you are ready to deal with another loss...Im glad I work all weekend so I wont have to watch the TB pitching staff embarrass this lineup.

    • Hmmm.  I stand corrected. 
    • He actually answered with Means and Bradish, collectively, as being back possibly soon in the first half.  Your timeline might be correct.  I suggest people click on the link.   Thanks for providing it.  
    • Mike Elias said on MLB Network that Bradish would possibly be back in the first half.   Though that is definitive its the first time I have heard O's management put any kind of time frame on Bradish return. So I will think by the All Star break for now if all goes well. https://www.mlb.com/orioles/video/mike-elias-discusses-success-of-the-orioles  
    • Yankees fans-“Jeter, hands down the greatest shortstop eva”. Probably would have actually been in the running for the top 2B if they put him there. That is how I feel about Holliday. No chance you put Gunnar there. Gunnar maybe 3B with size and range.  As Os fans, we have been pretty lucky with the SS and 3B we have had. Can’t say many clubs have enjoyed the talent, consistently, that we have seen. 
    • Wow finally found Kenny Weimans only fan
    • I'm on the same page. Platooning is great if you're poor, like the Rays. They pull it off well because of their analytics, development, and some minor league depth. But they do it because they are a small market, low budget team.  Players get platooned because they obviously have more pronounced flaws from one side of the plate. But the goal of any team should be to have as many star players at as many positions as possible in order to win a World Series. Star players - or any valuable player - aren't going to get platooned. The Braves and Dodgers are examples of having star players at almost every position, and the Orioles have the talent to be on the Braves/Dodgers side of the platooning spectrum this season. On the opposite side of the Rays. Hyde and Elias really irked me last season because they loved platooning mediocre vets like Frazier, Mateo, Hicks, and O'Hearn (yes, Hicks and O'Hearn produced for stretches, but I believe those were merely lucky/hot small sample sizes) when they had several talented prospects at their disposal who not only may have outproduced those vets in the short-term, but could have also gained some valuable experience to establish themselves as non-platooning stars/valuable players in the medium-to-long-term. I'm sure someone will point out that the team won 101 games last season as a reason for why Hyde and Elias platooning was successful. But to me, maximizing your talent is always the most efficient approach to winning games, and Hyde and Elias didn't do that as well as they could have last season (and in 2022 as well, when Jordan Westburg could have helped the Orioles make more of a push to the playoffs by replacing Rougned Odor).
    • Has a #1 been traded, beside Moncada? Who is the 2024 Chris Sale?
