I just watched an interview with Jason Hammel on the pre-game show. Obviously it was done weeks ago. Rob Long asked Hammel what his favorite baseball movies were and what his first job was.

Not a single question about the injury, rehabilitation, and the prospects for returning. I realize it's filler, but if the fans are REALLY interested in Hammel's return to not even have a disclaimer that

this was an old interview and nothing about the knee injury, I find it almost insulting to the fan.There is still supposed to be some kind of journalistic element on the MASN telecast, and you'd think a

Hammel interview would reflect that. Or, maybe I should just "chill". Maybe it's just me.

Only one way to solve this - you need to get in touch with MASN and tell them you want to conduct the interviews from now on!

    • I'd love to see the P&L for the Orioles.  We all know Angelos is a liar regarding what the Os can afford and not afford in terms of long-term contracts.  But this thread got me thinking...~2MM people at an avg ticket price of $34 (link to avg ticket price:  https://www.statista.com/statistics/203453/baltimore-orioles-average-ticket-price/) basically pays the entire big league roster by itself.  Sponsorships/Concessions/Concerts etc likely pay the front office staff and other facility/minor league expenses.  So basically Angelos is pocketing close to $100MM annually ($60MM national TV share + $40MM MASN TV share).  Heck, let's say I underestimated the "other expenses" outside of the MLB payroll by $50MM....he's still pocketing $50MM/year.... 
    • He was in like 6th grade. Well on his way!!!!!!!!
    • So I think Povich is on turn today.   Is he getting the ball for the deciding game of the International League championship series?   If so, that’s a huge test for him. He pitched against Durham one other time and had a great outing, allowing one run on one hit in 6 IP.  He’d be going on “only” four days’ rest, so if he’s pitching, it will be interesting to see what he’s got in the tank.  
    • Certainly on of the best "demotion to AAA" success stories I can remember.
    • Not disappointed at all.  It was a rough road for him to start but he's been tremendous since coming back from the minors.  A strong finish (over an extended period of time, too) makes up for how rocky the season started for him. I agree with Froberto Duran.  I will have very high expectations for him next year.
    • Good thread bump.  Even though Rodriguez’s ERA was higher than I expected, because of the way it happened, I am not disappointed.   I wasn’t expecting him to have such serious hiccups early, but his performance after he returned from AAA vastly exceeded my expectations for him. And, he threw more innings (163.1) than I expected, counting his AAA work.  Postseason innings to come. If we do a “Grayson Rodriguez Expectations 2024” thread, my expectations will be pretty damned high.    
    • While I will take it on faith that Gunnar Henderson was extaordinarily talented in his age 11 season, I do not think the Orioles can claim the credit for developing him in 2012. 😎
