"If I gave anyone $2 million dollars, I would give them the highest resources possibly available and the most knowledge possibly available," Rowell said.

The Orioles gave him a lot of money, so now they owe him advancement within the organization despite his horrid production?:rolleyes:

Well-Rowell was dominated in Class A ball. This guy is just amazing! I think the real reason he did not want to go to Aberdeen was because he would have gotten dominated there as well and he knows it.

He did very little in ROOKIE BALL when he was in Florida. I'd like to know where this guy got the chip on his shoulder. Amazing.

I'm friends with someone that worked for they keys for the past few years and was with Billy on a daily basis and let me just say Billy Rowell is a very strange dude. There isn't much left of that 2 million dollar bonus and that's the reason he would regularly sleep in his car during his time there. He was never the sharpest tool in the shed if you catch my drift.

I am sorry to hear that as well. He doesn't even know when he can become a minor league free agent. There is more to this story.

Well, he's got some personality. He's the kind of guy I would like... if he could hit.

Also, why would he sleep in his car? From what I understand, lots of the O's minor leaguers live with host families, and Rowell himself mentions that he was with one in Bowie.

    • If you’d asked me a few weeks ago, I probably would have told you that I didn’t care if Aaron Judge hit homer 60, 61 or 62 against us.    I’m not sure what’s changed, but in the words of the great Mox from Varsity Blues, “I say, ‘**** that.’”  I do not want to see our guys pitching to him this weekend.    I do not want to see Judge (who, for the record, I don’t have much of a problem with) celebrating at our expense. I don’t want to see his teammates celebrating at our expense. I sure as hell don’t want to see their fans celebrating at our expense.    Nothing would please me more this weekend than seeing Yankee fans crying about how we walked Judge 12-15 times over three games and how they bought tickets to see him hit #62 and blah blah blah.  Nothing would please me more than, after years of seeing Judge destroy our pitching, giving him absolutely nothing to hit and having him stand on first base all weekend while the boos rain down. I want us to be the bad guys. I want us to be the killjoys.  I do not want Hyde to give in. And even if he does have our guys pitch to Judge, I want our guys to be smart and throw everything in the dirt. Or airmail it over the home plate umpire.    I doubt it happens.  I’m sure some poor sap like Baumann or Baker or Krehbiel or  Reed will go down in history as the sucker who grooved a belt high fastball to Judge for #62. He’ll be on replays forever.  And after the game he’ll give some stock answer about “wanting to challenge him” or something which is silly because our pitching hasn’t ever been a challenge for Judge.    So, Hyde and/or Elias, if you’re reading, just walk Judge all weekend long. Make the Yankees and their fans miserable. Be the bad guys. Don’t let anyone have fun at our expense. It’s a new era for Orioles baseball, we’re no longer a laughingstock. No longer a team to set records against. No longer a team to beat up on.  Do not give in.    Milligan, out. 
    • I think it's pretty simple... they like him more than Tyler Nevin as a backup 1B, and they don't trust anyone else on the team to play first base. There were reports of Santander and Gunnar taking reps at first but nothing saying that the results were passable. I'm guessing they didn't like what they saw.
    • Not to mention this was AFTER Hays ruined the chances last night by GIDP against Barnes and like clockwork he repeats the feat. So yea Mullins just might have been a better option there.
    • Well, Chirinos did hit a homer!  
    • I feel like Elias has decided recently that they are out of it, and now its about securing better odds for the draft lottery by putting out lineups like today's.  
    • Great contributions at the MLB level from  top prospects this year....Adley, Gunner of course, but Stowers, Vavra playing big roles.  But look what is still on the way....and soon! Great seasons from Westburg, Norby, Ortiz, Cowser, who all finish the season at AAA with OPS > .800 on the season.  Then we have Coby Mayo and Hunter Haskin at Bowie.  Krjstad wasn't great at Aberdeen, but his slash line for the season was still .309/394/457/851 on the year.   That's at least 7 very high end hitting prospects before you even get into the great debuts from several of the 2022 class. Honestly I know people want to go for it in 2023, but I don't think we need to spend big money on free agent bats.   Much rather invest any increased salary $$ in pitching  
    • Their schedules don't matter. The Orioles have reached their ceiling. They have played their behinds off, but this is how far this payroll can possibly take them.
