Sorry but Adam is right to be angry.

The fans have B&Med for 15 years and now they are not showing up when they are in a legit pennant race.

I am not saying the stadium should be sold out every night but I don't think 25-30K fans is asking for too much.

The Orioles have run off the majority of their fans over the past 15 years. To think everyone is going to come back right away is pie-in-the-sky. Ask Oakland or Pittsburgh how attendance is this year.

People who post here and call in to XM MLB, aren't the average fan. The average fan pays attention to ESPN and is constantly being told by the "experts" to pay no attention to the men behind the Orange Curtain, they are a mirage. Why should the go after all that and 15 years of PA too. The last thing MLB wants is a BAL/PIT WS.

    • Well of course it did cost Seattle their 1,3, 5 prospects to now be in a position to sign him to this pre free agent deal 
    • I'm keeping an open mind watching Orioles Player Development unfold, but my decision using possibly antiquated thinking is that Gunnar Henderson is NOT a MLB shortstop because the org didn't deploy him there primarily as a minor leaguer. Just write him into 3B and a plum lineup spot as long as you can.    It saves a Jackson Holliday headache in two years to boot.     Urias-Stowers is a nice half of a bench if we block them by getting say somebody like Michael Brantley to take professional at-bats as a primary DH.
    • Again .. a bit of a false equivalency.  The difference is .050 OPS between our proposals.  Now if Elias was going to sign a big bat free agent third baseman I would agree .  I doubt he is.  But i would risk the .050 on the combo of Henderson at 3rd and Mateo at short over Urias (arb eligible in 2024) at 3rd and Gunnar at short.  To take the admitted risk that Mateo hits a bit better.. if not, Gunnar can take over at that point at ss.    But it is a good problem to have and I can see it going your way too. 
    • No, but I think the team will bet the same way I am.  Henderson has the talent to be an above average SS.   We have a lot of infielders in the system who can hit.  There’s no reason to have a defensive only SS.  
    • Back of napkin I guess this is around $24 AAV for  FA years if its judged 1/12 for Arb3 and 4/96 for FA seasons 1.1 years out. Castillo-Ray-Gausman-Berrios-Musgrove are for me kind of a flat basket as Mountcastle-Mancini-Mullins-Hays-Santander were for me as the supporting cast of the early Adley teams. The industry seems to have some consensus what this kind of house is worth.
    • I don't get why every hitter has to see Bautista's splitter.  Pretty much all the hits off Bautista were on his splitter, Tucker  had to figure it was coming, I'm sitting there knowing it is coming.  Not sure there are bad 100 mph fastballs, but I know there are bad splitters.
    • Your comparison seems to assume that Henderson can be as good a glove at SS as Rutschman is behind the plate. I think that has not been proven yet.
