Recommended Posts

The articles are from years back.I was just showing how the employees were treated Also when Delaware North took over the concessions ,many employees had to reapply for the same job at lower wages and loss of seniority. Hope John Angelos is really for these workers.

Gotcha. :thumbsup1:

According to this on Deadspin, only the ushers, ticket sellers and security screeners will get compensated. The concession and merchandising employees are controlled by Delaware North and not subject to the missed-game compensation, or cleanup crews.

As it turns out, only stadium workers directly on the team?s payroll will get make-up money. That group includes ushers, ticket sellers, and security screeners. Orioles spokesperson Kristen Hudak declined to provide any stats related to the number of employees that fall in this category, but it?s a fraction of the labor force that was put out by the tumult that consumed Baltimore. All food, booze and merchandise vendors, for example, are technically employed by a contractor, Delaware North, and are therefore not eligible for the recompense offered by the O?s for the disappeared games.

The cleaning crew was also spared the team?s generosity. The janitorial workers are officially employed by Chimes Inc., a Baltimore-based non-profit that describes itself as a place that ?provides training and employment opportunities for people with severe disabilities.? That firm has a contract with the Maryland Stadium Authority, which owns Camden Yards and leases it to Peter Angelos. Chimes spokesman Levi Rabinowitz says that his company will give nine supervisors the money they would have made for the two games that were canceled, and the one empty-stadium game, if they were played under normal circumstances.

But Hicks, and all other members of Chimes? 185-person Camden Yards cleanup crew, are out of luck. (Or at least out of money.) Rabinowitz says they?re hired on a game-by-game, first-come, first-serve basis out of a pool of 300 workers pre-approved by Chimes. ?We call it the ?Ambition System,?? he says.

?They really don?t expect to get paid because they didn?t work,? Rabinowitz says. ?It?s work for pay. They know that.?

Looks like DN did pay their employees.Also looks like they have about 1,000 associates.

Victoria Hong, a spokeswoman the Camden Yards concessionaire Delaware North, said company will pay its employees who were affected by the postponements.

"Delaware North Sportservice wants to publicly thank its loyal local associates who showed great patience during the week of April 27th," the company said in a statement. "Due to the extraordinary circumstances that led to three games being moved from Oriole Park and another being closed to fans, we wanted to show our appreciation and support to our nearly 1,000 game day associates by voluntarily providing each with a monetary payment. We are very proud of our associates and their dedication to servin

g up the best game day experience to Oriole fans."

John said that would be the case. I am proud of the Angelos family on this.

Irresponsible research & poor reporting at it's finest.

Absolutely. I rarely read Deadspin but this popped upon my news feed as O's related so I checked it out. Nowhere there does it mention that Delaware North stepped up and paid their staff, not even in the comments. Respect to them and to the Angelos family for doing right by their employees.

The press annoys me more and more. Between agendas on one side or the other. Just bad reporting and not taking the time to research something. Get it out first and if it is right even better.

Wolf Blitzer asked the head of the Maryland National Guard if they carry weapons. They were in Iraq and Afghanistan. They don't have super squirters.

Also try to take the time to know what the engineer and the conductors do on an Amtrak train. It takes a few minutes to look it up.

    • 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.
