I think you have it backwards.

The orioles are in a bad position with MLB over the MASN litigation.

I'm not an Attorney but considering MLB gave the Nats a loan in anticipation of drastically increased rights fees based on an agreement they signed shows bias. Frobby would be the one to discuss this with as I know he has the court documents and keeps up with it.

I think the sympathy is going to be a bit different. A terrorist bombed the Marathon, and the people of Baltimore burned their own city down.

Is Shabazz from Baltimore? What was the percentage rate of "people" from Baltimore that participated in the riots? What percentage of the people rioting in Baltimore are from Baltimore. Do you think that most of the people of Baltimore are cheering these people who are burning buildings and dragging shop owners into the street to beat them? This crime was not committed by most of the people of Baltimore that do not participate and to make a statement like that is a major insult to the good "people" of Baltimore.

You might to ask some business owners that lost everything how they feel about your comment.

It's a tragedy what happened to those who were affected. They all have my sincere sympathy. Dozens of businesses and vehicles being set on fire does not equate to the city being burned down. There were many areas in the city that experienced nothing. I'm not trying to minimize or trivialize the devastation that some have experienced, but let's not overstate things.

Okay, I guess you are right. The people who rioted were not from Baltimore, they came down from NY to protest and it turned into a riot.

Word is connections have been established between social media accounts that were active in the Ferguson riots and the Baltimore riot. It is conceivable that there is an outside agitating force at work.

multiple cases of arson?

Large swaths of the city were unaffected. My neighborhood was fine.

Was Malike wrong in what he said or do you really think he meant the entire city was burned down? His point remains that Boston had something done to their city by outside forces. For all intents and purposes, citizens of Baltimore did this to themselves. That doesn't mean everyone and it doesn't negate the fact that it's a small percentage of the city that participated in the destruction, but they still did it to themselves.

Agreed with this. If I say anymore, it will become political.

This is the point I was trying to make. You did it much more eloquently.

Doubtful because many of the rioters were wearing beige pants like they do in Baltimore area schools. I've heard the riot was caused by almost 90% students. Not saying a few car loads of thugs came in from out of town. Im sure it happens, but they weren't the ones destroying property.

    • I agree this is in general the case.  However, it is undeniable that some players do better in some spots than others.  It's possible that what we are seeing with Gunnar is sample size related, but he especially leading off the game does not appear generally very comfortable.  
    • Based on the game threads, if this team is like an early relationship I'm assuming you must've been tough on the girlfriends back in the day 😅
    • I was sitting behind the dugout last night. I can’t figure out how to post a photo from my phone but I had multiple shots of Henderson and Holliday standing side by side on the dugout rail while the Os were batting, talking. His other visible interactions also seemed normal to me. Plus the video of him in the wall with Cowser. Remember he was teammates when Cowser on the AAA championship team last fall, so he at least already knows him a bit. 
    • I feel bad for Hays because in any other time except for right now he would be a valuable player for the Orioles. Hays is now what McKenna was the last few seasons for this team. I hope Hays can land on a new team where he will get the chance to play everyday.
    • Damn, these boys are entertaining. I watch every game, every night. I am so frustrated when they do almost nothing offensively until the last third of the game, and then they somehow find a way to throw a switch and make the game...theirs. I'm sure this pattern is not sustainable...the alchemy that turns coal into a diamond..and makes gold bricks out of fools gold.But in the last year and the start of this one, this team has to be one of the most beguiling teams in the game. EVERY player seems to be able to step up in any moment, and soon, when he gets his feet under him ,Jackson Holliday will too. It's just a matter of time. Like most , if not all of you, I've suffered  as a fan watching this team in rebuild, and almost dropped my MLBTV subscription because a few seasons ago they were unwatchable. But boy, this team is not only compelling, and heart stopping to watch...I literally cant wait for game time every day. Look, rooting for any sports team is like early romance. You are attracted by all the positives...but then, somehow, reality sets in and often the romance is filled with disappointment, and then disdain at being  "betrayed" by flaws and foible. I know I may sing a different tune and be filled with frustration and anger at a "underachieving " club eventually. It will happen. It's not me being fickle. It's me expecting perfection every night.Its unrealistic, I know. But for now, for this stretch...I have the budding romance and a love for these boys and their ability as any time since...well, since last year. THESE BOYS ARE FUN TO WATCH. ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?
