John Angelos: "We will Make Concession Employees Whole."

I assume this means they'll be compensated for the lost time, but what does "whole" mean in this context? I'm not familiar with that phrase.

Good question, and since the food people work for a vendor and not the team, I guess the team has to work through the vendor to make sure they are taken care of.

It sounds like they will be reimbursed for all lost wages. I would guess they will tabulate this based on some sort of average earnings for each particular night of the week?

The Angelos family have for years been staunch defenders of workers rights and remarkably generous philanthropists. Say what you want about Peter's reputation as an owner, he has ALWAYS put this city first.

We are VERY lucky to have the Angelos family. Between John's comments about the riots, and his commitment to reimburse those affected at Camden Yards, he has been doing a lot of right things in this very tough situation.

Also good PR. CVS is also doing this.

From the Sun:

Many of them have already been working in other nearby CVS/pharmacy stores and we are ensuring that all of these employees who want to work in one of our other CVS/pharmacy stores in Baltimore will have a place," DeAngelis said. "Also, given the extraordinary circumstances, we are paying our Baltimore store employees for their regularly scheduled hours this week."

John was very impressive in an interview on MSNBC as well. I know there has been a ton of criticism of the sons, but given what we have seen of John it sure seems he at least has the capacity to make proper hiring, firing and management decisions for the Orioles to be successful.

Starts at 4:25

    • Matt Chapman to Giants 3 years 54 million.  Opt out after each season.  
    • Mountcastle was 10th in the AL in OPS in the 2nd half. That was post vertigo. With the WALL as a RHH. Only Ohtani, Casas, Seager, Tucker, Diaz, Witt, Rodriguez, Bregman, and Devers, had a higher 2nd half OPS. Pretty good company. 
    • On Draftkings, Kjerstad is the 9th favorite for AL ROY at +2200 Cowser is the 14th favorite for AL ROY at +3500
    • Funny, because I would say waiving other CF AAAA depth would mean that there is no reason to keep another backup CF around because McKenna is that guy. I also think Daniel Johnson must look good enough in camp to get rid of Burdick/Hilliard. It’s also interesting that we’ve only lost 4 players off waivers this offseason. Two of those were CF options. I don’t think the world of McKenna, but he’s a good bench option as being RH to a LH Mullins. 
    • I’ve arrived in Sarasota and will wear my Eddie Murray shirt to tomorrow’s game! Will save the Jones Jersey for Monday. So excited to be here!
    • LABR's AL only room tonight guessed confidence Ryan O'Hearn's playing time is secure over these two. An authentic Lowenstein is useful and the young DH/OF guys would be challenged early to outplay it. But if you feel like it was lightning in a bottle and even Mountcastle as a 1st round pick you happen to have but don't really like is someone you want to invest more in, then.... Only O'Hearn really stands in the way of 1B Mountcastle, DH Kjerstad (or Cowser) playing near enough to everyday.     Mountcastle should be getting towards those 10000 hours of practice to be really good at 1B defense, right? I wouldn't be shocked if a couple years back Elias could send mischievous texts to the Padres like, "we know you have to cut Jorge Mateo, and we're just waiting", and now the circle completes and Colorado or Chicago get to say "we know you have to cut Ryan O'Hearn and Ramon Urias, and we're just waiting (and no they can't be small pieces in your Dylan Cease bid)." Before Santander departs, the path is really more through the first basemen.    DL Hall being in the first big deal Elias actually closed hints to me Mountcastle could be next.    Mountcastle trade value in this slow market is constrained by JD Martinez or Brandon Belt hanging around wondering if they'll get jobs.     Belt may end up playing for less than the 1/4 Mountcastle will command in Arb1 this year.    Carlos Santana made it to ~$5M, a number Arb2 Mountcastle probably blows past for 2025 with a decent season. An early Mountcastle trade and O'Hearn fade could open a path for 1B Santander, RF Cowser, DH Kjerstad even (or however those 3 best defend those positions, probably something different every day based on the arms, bats, ballpark and weather that day. I still have hopes Mountcastle becomes a more significant contributor, but while we wait out Mayo and Basallo, Elias' most "My Guys" lineup in early 2024 might be like: SS Gunnar, C Adley, 1B Santander, LF Hays, DH Kjerstad, CF Mullins, 3B Westburg, RF Cowser, 2B Holliday
    • Surpised they still haven't started Westburg at 2B once yet this spring training after 8 games. He projects as the starting 2nd basemen on opening day.
