Yes! I think PA is posturing or holding out for the best compensation for DD. I would not be surprised if his office is bugged in the warehouse and they already know how he feels about leaving for Toronto. I say let him go but get a solid player and draft pick for him. He isn't helping the team at the moment so let's move on. The question becomes....does Cal Ripken finally move into the front office? Does Buck take on a larger role with player decisions and maybe Brady moves up the ladder sharing duties with Buck and Louis Angelos.

I voted "yes" but not until the end of 2015. I can't believe that DD would leave his team for a division rival right in the middle of off-season. It seems like a huge conflict of interest. DD's immediately leaving would be leaving the Os in a lurch, instead, he would be trying to build up a division rival.

As for Angelos, he's posturing in order to get the best compensation that he can.

If Duquette doesn't want to leave, why hasn't he said something to stop what has become a huge distraction? I think he will leave. PA will get as much as possible in return. How the O's handle his departure will be critical.

Depends on your point of view. More people are voting Yes (he will leave in 2015) than are voting No (He's staying and Angelos will stick to his guns).

I think he leaves after the season. Amgelos will fight but the issues will cause a rift and off to Canada. Could be sooner.

Oh Canada,glorious and free to be Blue Jay CEO.

Help us to find, O God, in thee,

A lasting rich reward.

As waiting for the better day,

To become a Blue Jay someday.

The division of hope for all who toil,

The true North strong and free!

O Toronto, we stand on guard for thee!

O Toronto, we make some trades for thee!

    • I hope the front office knows the Frazier signing was super dumb use of resources when you have top IF talent like Westburg.
    • Really enjoyed seeing Wells' confidence today.  Looked great. 
    • Taking what I have seen from ST and past performance: 1)  Grayson Rodriguez -  He is not there yet but over the course of 2023 I think he become the staff ace.   I am not even sure he makes the rotation to begin the season but he has the best stuff and makeup to be the O's best starter. 100 IP   3.50 ERA  2) DL Hall -  He is changing from a thrower to a pitchers.  His pitches are off the chart but he has to calm down.  Still has to master his pitches from the stretch.   Begins as AAA but he is likely to find his control early in the season. TOR Starter in the making. 100 IP   3.50 ERA 3) Kyle Bradish  -  Has the pitches and the durability.  Will blow up now and then but overall he has he stuff to beat any team on a given day.   Will be going deep in games soon.  #2 stuff. 170 IP   3.28 ERA (like 2nd half) 4) Dean Kremer -  Growing into a solid starter.   His stuff is there.   #3 Stuff 160 IP  3.23 ERA (like last year) 5) John Means -   Former All Star just need to get healthy.  See him in July.  May be better in 2024 than in 2023.  #3 stuff 75 IP  3.81 ERA (Career ERA) 6) Tyler Wells -  He goes 5 inning and allow 1 run, he could be in the rotation to begin the season.   Average fastball but he has 5 pitches.  #4 starter stuff 130 IP   3.38 ERA  (last year 1st half) 7)   Cole Irvin -  I have enjoyed watching him this spring but he is only facing AAA competition.   I still need to understand  why he had a 5.29 ERA away from Oakland Stadium.   #5  Capable of  180 IP    4.20 ERA 8  Kyle Gibson -  The O's defense, the Wall and Holt/Holmes  coaching will help him but he is only a #5.   Similar to Jordan Lyles. May be traded in July for  a prospect. 100 IP   4.32 ERA 9)  Spenser Watkins -  Good backup starter who pitches better as a starter than a reliever.  Will probably not see a lot of time in the majors.  Capable of 140 IP  4.17 ERA as a starter but will probably not get that opportunity in the majors. 10)  Voth  - Probably a mid/long reliever and swing man.   Had a nice year as a starter for the O's last year.  3.04 ERA  (like last season) 11) Bruce Zimmermann -  Looks better this spring but I really can't place him after last years performance.      
    • "He's a funny guy, that parrot, isn't he?" "He sure is."
    • Wells was very good today. Grayson was great last year in triple a and is obviously a top prospect, but you’d be hard pressed to say he was one of the orioles top 5 starters this spring 
    • Have watched every game that's been on TV, whether by MASN or the other networks.  Currently watching Pittsburgh Sportsnet broadcast.  Have listened to every game but 2, followed the last Grayson Rodriguez game on Gameday which was incredibly tedious, as they didn't note each pitch, only the outcome of each at bat.  Before I met weams, I used to say I'd never meet anyone who'd put up with the amount of baseball I watch -- he was my perfect match, watched just as much as I did!  But then, you guys knew that.
