Peter Angelos Story

Dreaming of the day PA no longer owns the Os.

Whoever would be in line to take his place or be majority owner, I hope they are more of a fan than a shrewed business man and isn't so uptight about money 100% of the time.

Just seems like PA if the type of guy who doesn't realize us fans are how he gets his money or that he just doesnt care.

Other than Cruz (who I wouldn't really count due to only a one year deal) the only "Big FA" they signed was Tejeda.

Its funny how they(he) are willing to give out money when the team as a whole sucks, but now the team is one of the best in baseball and they(he) are afraid to do anything of substance.

I know most on here dislike him as well, but it also seems like a lot try to defend him or his decisions so I felt this would be a good story for ppl to realize just who he is or what he's about.

WOW!

This has never been posted before.

How could something from Aug 2013 completely slip under the collective radar here?

What a find!

:rolleyes:

Haha. Even during the holidays you're still a smartass.

I guess it's inconceivable that this site had had new members since then. Probably also hard to believe that even if it was posted that existing users might indeed missed it.

But everything thought up in your head is gold and every angle obviously thought out.

:rolleyes:

C, I can due that two

Oops some more grammatical errors. I hope Can Of Corn doesn't try getting me banned in his usual settle way.

I just learned to, you couldn't have picked a better name.

Can Of Corn, qhich stands for COC.....

Coincidence? I think not. ;)

If you felt a need to revisit it you could have bumped one of the prior threads.

Who exactly have I tried to get banned?

And what is my usual "subtle?" way?

You have implied I should be disciplined for a few grammatical errors.

And forgive me for not wanting to look through 60 pages consisting of what? 25 topics on each one to see if it has been posted before.

And being that is was a 2013 article I doubt it was on one of the recent pages.

Millions of topics of been reposted. If it's a issue the mods handle it.

It's not for you to act like you do abd bring down the morale of the board and start arguments all the time. Your an antagonist 100% of the time and that is more cancerous to a board like this than an occasional spelling error.

In fariness, PA724 wasn't a member when these articles were published, so he wouldn't have been aware of the prior threads. Still, bringing up a 16-month old article just seems like a weak excuse to reiterate a point he's been making for weeks.

Just win, baby. So long as the team is playing well, I'm not worried about the owner.

No, I suggested you follow board rules. That is not close to the same thing as lobbying for disciplinary action.

If you find my presence cancerous I suggest you go ahead and use the /ignore function.

COC don't think like that, he just sees something that he can run with abs tries to piss ppl off instead of minding his own business. Even if it's something that isn't of importance to him. He finds a way to make it important to him.

And I also just looked through the last 5 pages abd not one including a thread title invoicing Angelos.

Add that to what Frobby said about my late existence, forgive me for not noticing. And thanks for making it a big deal.

You know what is important to me?

Raising the level of discourse on this board.

If that means trying to kill a poor thread in the crib then so be it.

    • We’ll always have the no-hitter…
    • Do we know what his velocity was today? I know he doesn't light up the gun but was he at his normal? 
    • Longterm he’s probably that missing RH SU/MR that we’ve been looking for since the Fuji trade.  It’s probably Suarez vs Ramírez vs Tate for 1-2 bullpen spots. Wells and one of Irvin/Means could be in the bullpen mix as well.  Depth is good to have. I wouldn’t sleep on Ramirez either. Elias has shown a knack from adding relievers through trade or waivers. 
    • There's not a single high level prospect on the team he pitched against tonight and even the one out he got was crushed
    • Let’s tap the brakes on his move to the bullpen. His stuff plays and he can get outs. Best of all, he doesn’t walk anyone. He challenges hitters and gets weak contact. With our defense, I’d rather him give up the occasional double or flared hit to the outfield than to see walks. Keep him in the starting rotation until he proves he doesn’t belong. Wells and Irvin both have experience in the pen and frankly for Irvin, though I love him, has a real tough time throwing strikes at times.    anyway, let’s see what the old dog can do.
    • I could see Suarez sticking in a bullpen role long term with the movement on his fastball. Also he might be able to throw a 2 to 3 more MPH harder not having to worry about trying to pitch six innings. The Orioles have done a good job finding pitchers who weren't expected to do much in recent years and it would be cool if Suarez is another find.
    • I mean, heres where we really find out if Holliday is cut out for the majors and if he has the character to fight through major adversity right off the bat right?  Saw a good point that there was a guy previously that started 4 of 55, and that was ole #8.  Mike Trout didnt get his batting average up to .200 until May 31st of his first season.  Ideal? Absolutely not.  But when the franchises all-time hits leader started with the same slump its something to pay attention to.
