Because sports is pretty much all I have. I'm in my mid twenties and I'm still singe because girls see me as someone to take advantage of me and friend zone me instead of date me...no wife, no family for me. I have an average job. Sports are my getaway, and in the last few months it's become apparent to me that the team doesn't give a single you know what about winning a championship. Maybe I care to much, but I hate that the people in the warehouse don't care at all.

Seriously, Steve, you may need some counseling. We all care a great deal about the Orioles, but at the end of the day, you can't let your happiness about life in general be decided by something over which you have no control at all. I truly hope things get better for you.

I really feel bad that you think this. It's not true. I hope some day to get the opportunity to show you that.

I don't think it is true either....but the FO has sure done absolutely nothing to wipe that awful stink of a playoff exit out of our minds. I would love to be really excited about this upcoming season as opposed to just visualizing Alex Gordon's bomb in the same way that I visualize Marquis Grissom's homer.

At the end of the day, I just want to win a championship. I want that parade to be in downtown Baltimore, with floats carrying our players signifying that for that season, we were better than everyone else. It should have been last year. I hope it is this year....whatever it takes to get there.

Riddle me this...

Would you trade Cruz, Markakis, and Miller for Wieters, Manny, and Davis?

If so, then the Orioles 2015 Opening Day lineup is better than the Orioles 2014 playoff roster.

So why again is everyone so upset about this offseason????

Will someone explain to me why ppl keep throwing CD in the conversation of "getting player back".

He played over 100 games and hit the DL once, which was the 15 day version. And missed about 17 reg season games. Outside of the playoffs, CD well add nothing to this team in 2015 that he didnt add last year, unless he his 40+ bombs again.

Everyone thinks it's so easy to say wr will be better just because we are getting Machado and Wieters back.

Machado hasnt shown the ability to play a full season healthy and some of you are using that against other players on other teams, yet Machado is a different case because hes a O?

And although most TJ surgery cases are pitchers, there is a good track record of it being a repetitive thing. So who's to say Wieters is going to stay healthy?

On top of all of that, Cruz WAS the Os best player and he is gone.

I understand this team could overachieve, but the odds are worse for the Os going into 2015 than they were in 2014. If you disagree then you're fooling yourself.

And I tend to agree with Birdland, CoC. The Yanks had a lot going on last year with new faces and injuries. Os had injuries too but outside of adding Cruz and Ubaldo, the team didn't change a lot. These current yanks well be more comfortable.

If I'm not mistaken, the Yanks added....

McCann

Beltran

Ellsbury

Brian Roberts

Headly

Tanaka

Almost half the lineup was new and If you count Pineda, 2/5 of their rotation was new. To think they wont be better is wise than thinking the Os are just as good as last year.

All of us fans and even "experts" predict upcoming seasons based on what's ON PAPER. No one can predict injuries, if the team will add players through trades, who will have a breakout seasons (Pearce). No one can predict that stuff, so you predict based off what you are given. And every team other than maybe TB got better ON PAPER while, ON PAPER, the Os got worse. It's as simple as that.

Agree so far yes.

Of course you are correct IMO. But the offseason is not over yet, so we have to give it a little time still. If this is the team that we take into the season, and we win the AL East, I will be both thrilled and shocked. But the two things that are a given with DD is that he is very patient and very tight lipped. I have to assume he has few surprises up his sleeve. We will see.

The way i look at it is

Rasmus will at least put up Nick Numbers in 2015. IMO Rasmus>>>>>Markakis

Miller- Was never coming back in 2015. Side Note i really think Wright is gonna have a good year.

Now here is the million dollar question. Will having Manny and Matt in 2015 offset Cruz? IMO Yes

Now i ask you did the Orioles really have a bad off-season? Answer No

    • Yeah, basically this, that Westburg's underlying numbers (EV, barrel %, xwOBA) seem to point at this being pretty real, or at least that there's nothing 'undeserved / lucky' about this hot streak, if it's just that. 
    • The problem with a Cowser/Kjerstad/Stowers/Bradfield outfield roster is there are no right handers to handle LHP. I don't think and completely left handed outfield is the destination for an organization the values versatility.
    • Looks maybe concussion related. 
    • How can you not be romantic about baseball? This seems slightly poetic. I enjoyed reading, and correlated your experience in the stands back to what I watch in Game 1 on MASN.  It was also pretty cool to hear Jim Palmer give you a shout out in Game 2 of the series on Live TV.
    • I am not worried.  It just doesn’t remotely meet the eye test.  He has been great in the field . I can think of at least 3 outstanding plays he has made and not any that I thought he should have gotten but didn’t. Meanwhile Holliday is 3 OAA and I can’t think of an outstanding play and can think of a number I thought he should have made. 
    • Nicely stated Roy. Every since I was 9 years old and saw the O's vs. the Tokyo Giants in Tokyo in 1971, I've been infected with the Orange/Black virus. There is no cure and I don't want one. You and I sat at the lunch table with Jim Palmer at the 1970 World Series Champs reunion, and its still one of my enduring baseball memories. You said I looked like Carlton Fisk! I was at all 3 games in this Angels series, right behind the O's dugout. I got to see all our boys, and just simply love to watch this team play. And in true baseball fashion, the one game on paper we should have dominated (GRod vs. 8+ ERA Channing), we end up down 7-0 and lose. But watching Gunnar's homers, his electric triple, and he made a fantastic play today on a ball that went under Westburg's glove, Adley do Adley things, Cowser, holy crap. Kimbrel v. Trout with bases loaded, bottom of 9th, 2 outs, down by 2? That was fun. Next game Trout bats leadoff and torches a GRod fastball for a homer to the opposite field.  An observation.... If you didn't know anything about the team, and you only watched game 1 batting practice, you'd think Cowser and O'Hearn were the studs of the team. Mountcastle was taking BP with the reserves and he put on a show as well.  Home after 3 straight days watching this O's team, so jealous of the Balt fans in Balt that get to see the team with regularity. It's a special bunch.
