Time for a Bird?

So, uh, how is it that I don't have a whole flock of birds? I'm pretty sure me and Tony are the two who have been at this site the longest now of anyone. For me, it's 11 years. There's also nothing I haven't done around here. Post. Write. Edit. Report. Negotiate.

Even got the place named best website in all of Baltimore by the Baltimore City Paper in 2004! Tony was half a world away when that happened! And not just best web sports site. BEST WEB SITE PERIOD!

And what do I have? Well, Tony is a great friend and we have fun going to games. But I don't see any birds up above my name.

(and this is a good place to mention Weams is the effing man around here, man the guy is something else)

1,500 posts is generally quite a stretch to "earn a bird." Now, I know McLovin added 3 extra birds to Scottie and Roy and 5 extra to Tony for being OH capo di tutti capi, so work it out with them ;)

There should be a bird tax on the high achieving bird holders.
No, no, no, what we need is to give a bird tax cut to those with two or fewer birds, the bird middle class, if you will.

You are both wrong. Those with the most rep can give the most rep. You make it easier for those with 3 or more birds to get more rep then the rep will trickle down from them to the other posters.

Well, that should work in theory but I haven't gotten a freeakin seed from some of the 1 percenters on here.

I can think of one past and two present "heavy hitters" that have, to the best of my recollection, not repped me since I have become a plus member.

I am also, I think, seriously in the rep hole with another poster.

New here and at first I thought this thread was asking Tony to go to the pet store, buy some birds, and send them to dedicated contributers as a form of thank you for sticking with us through the tough times.

/facepalm

In other news I now have a foul mouth yankee hating parrot on my wishlist. Give him a little Oriole hat and teach him to dance on Oriole homeruns. (everyones got to dream)

Do your green bars start over every time you get a bird? I saw 2 bars on yours and nearly choked on my beer! Rep to you because I am sure that I missed you many times that I apreciated what you posted but didnt take the time to show it!

Yes, they do.

    • A lot of people didn’t like this signing.  It was a few bad outings last year but otherwise, he was very good. He will have some bumps in the road but he’s a very capable guy still.
    • I agree. It has to be anticipating Mountcastle being out a little longer, maybe they will IL him too if his knee doesn’t improve quickly. But if Hays is out the minimum 10 days (one of which already passed), maybe Kjerstad gets 3 starts from Mountcastle and 1-2 from rest days for others, available to pinch hit the rest. That wouldn’t be so bad. 
    • I trust the O’s and Elias’ handling of him.  Similar to Decosta and the Ravens, they seem to make more good decisions than other clubs do.     I think he can work it out at the major league level if they do.  Wouldn’t be worried if he got sent down to regain some confidence.
    • I don’t see Wells coming back to the rotation. That was never the plan to begin with. Also, I’m not sure it’s a given that Means can make effective starts at the Bug League level right now. He’s been legit terrible against AAA hitters on a pretty consistent basis so far this season. Now Bradish on the other hand, if he can return, he will probably bump one of Suarez or Irvin to the pen (the one who is pitching the worse).  If Suarez keeps performing (I don’t think his current level is realistic to expect) but at a good level for a back end starter, he stays.
    • Remove Bradish and I will maybe agree. To me this guy is destined for the pen, where hopefully his swing and miss stuff plays up even more. Could be an important piece, but I’m not getting my hopes up too far after two appearances.
    • Good comp. I see a lot of Daniel Cabrera from Suarez. A bigger guy with a real heavy fastball with heat and movement.    Cabrera ending up not living up to his potential, but for a minute it was fun dream of a 1-2 with him and bedard as lethal TOR starters. 
    • To each their own. Carry on…
