I am embarrassed to be an Orioles fan.

After the complete debacle that it was to actually get a GM, we end up with an out of touch Red Sox cast off who couldn't sniff a FO job anywhere else (why was he out of baseball for 11 years?).

We promptly change our philosophy from signing mid level, waste of talent American free agents to signing mid level, waste of talent international free agents.

Next we sign a 17 year old Korean high schooler who throws 80 MPH. Keep in mind, most MIDDLE SCHOOL pitchers can do this. We promptly get banned from Korea. Wait, then MLB voids the contract.

Well, we still have our number one pitcher. Let's trade him for a cast off starter and an above average reliever? We shouldn't keep him so he can throw 200 innings. Let's just get rid of him for garbage.

Let's also hype up Dana freaking!!!!! Eveland. I mean, he must be the answer. He had four good starts last year and has never been a good MLB player in his career. Fits the DAN DUQUETTE mold.

Unsettled about Adam Jones? Why trade or extend him, let's sign him to a one year deal just to avoid arbitration. DD would hate to actually do something meaningful.

Now Zach Britton is hurt. How long will this linger? I will guess probably for the rest of his career.

I'd take Andy back in a second. At least he was in touch with reality. We are absolutely EFFFFFFFFFED for now and for the future.

This is a new low point for the Orioles.

I forgot about Endy Chavez and Wilson Betemit as our big offseason signings. Also forgot about the sea of warm former 1st round picks from 2002-2005 who consume our minor/major league "roster".

This is an absolute joke.

I'm not going to lie to you... I had literally forgotten that we had signed Endy Chavez.

I'm glad somebody had the nerve to point all this out. Lord knows, the complacency around here was putting me to sleep. Anybody else tired of all the lollipops and rainbows since Duquette took over?

Not sure what board you've been reading.

It was sarcasm. Sometimes it's more entertaining to be a little obscure. Enough of obscurity. After the last couple of weeks of non-stop Duquette-bashing and general Oriole negativity around here we need another post like the OP and another thread like this about as much as we need three buttocks.

So you don't agree three buttocks boy?

OK I might not be embarrassed to be an O's fan, but this is a pretty embarrassing time. The state of our franchise is worse than I can ever remember. At least at one time we had bedard and tejada to trade. Hell, at one time we signed Tejada. No matter what we did, it was a waste. This offseason is like a waste without even trying.

I'm interested to see how this "plan" of signing misfits galore works out. I'd like to see the product in action before I say it was embarassing. If all goes right, DD will look like a genius. Granted, that likely won't be the case...I'm just saying that the season has yet to begin, let's wait it out til June or so before we all light ourselves on fire whilst gouging out our eyes with rusty spoons. Figuratively speaking...of course...I think...
