"It's another Angelos story to add to the list, says a GM. He effects everything they do. They may never overcome him. Why would they want a first basemen when they can overpay for middle relievers and have 4 DH's?"

Most GM's and Boswell agree with me. You trade a good 2b for a 40 HR first baseman who's only 27 and can protect Tejada for years.

Edit:damn Fansince! You beat me to it!

It's just another Angelos story to add to the list," one baseball executive said. "He affects everything they do. They may never overcome him. Why would they want a first baseman when they can overpay for middle relievers and have four DHs?"

It's hard to argue with Boswell, but he's just so annoying.

We get it, slappy, but guess what? You've got your own jacked up franchise to b*tch about down there, so shhhhhhhhhhhhh...

:rolleyes:

He won't be *****ing about them for long. With Kasten running it and a new stadium on the way. They will leave us in the dust.:(

Yeeeeeeah no. That's inferiority complex. The Nats have one of the worst farm systems. They have an awful team. They only have one (injury prone) starter and a bunch of Trachsel-level scrubs fighting for four spots. The only sign of future talent comes in Ryan Zimmerman. They have ONE prospect on BA's top 100, and he's at 95.

It'll be years before they compete. Well, maybe not before they compete, but before they're a decent team that is worthy of competing.

...if he is talking about anything OTHER then the Orioles.

Thats a pretty silly statement. He's an excellent writer no matter what the subject. Maybe he doesnt know everything about the Orioles but i think he has a good understanding about IDIOT owners - PollinSnyderAngelos.

How is it silly?

It's like some people on here: they make some good points, but when it is wrapped in a veil of, "ANGELOSSUXANGELOSSUXANGELOSSUXANGELOSSUX!!!11," anything worth reading is lost.

Boswell is right. This is exactly the same stuff we've always heard, always feared and always complained about. Angelos openly admits to vetoing moves his GMs thought would "improve the team". Until he's gone we won't be in the position to compete again. Don't ignore the message just because you don't like the messenger.

    • Is it really a big problem?    Walking guys is only rarely a good strategy.  
    • Some of this year’s struggles with LHP strike me as one of those fluky things that happen in baseball.   Here are some 2021/2022 numbers vs. LHP: Mountcastle .842/.713 Hays .897/.701 Mullins .788/.573 Now Mullins, in his switch hitting days, was weak vs. LHP.   When he switched to hitting from the left side exclusively, he hit them much better last year, but my impression is he did most of his damage in the first half of the season.  So, it may be that LHP have figured out how to attack him and his 2022 numbers are more predictive of the future than 2021.    Mountcastle and Hays, on the other hand, are capable of doing much better than they did this year vs. LHP. Rutschman has a .568 OPS vs. LHP and I feel that’s fluky as well.   He had good splits against LHP in the minors and in college.  My guess is he’ll work on his RH stroke in the offseason and do much better next year.  (Honestly, he doesn’t have much else to work on.) The way OPACY is set up now, it favors LHB and thus LHP figure to do well there.   We’re still facing RHP 70% of the time, so I don’t think we want to load up on RHB and put us at a disadvantage in our own ballpark just to address a problem that exists 30% of the time and may be a one-year anomaly.       
    • Oh he’s going to hit it against us. I just hope it’s off a pitcher that isn’t with us for the long term. Like Lyles, or one of our up/down relievers.    But I want to see our pitchers go at him. We’re about building respect in our franchise back, and building confidence for next year.    Hyde is class, and it’s time we got back to that completely. 
    • Funny thing … Mantle hit 500th and for the Os, the mighty Mark Belanger hit a HR lol … his only one in 1967 and one of 20 career over 18 seasons 
    • Oh we have a history of being part of Yankee lore … Cal breaking Lou’s record, and Stu Miller giving up Mickey’s 500th (when 500 meant something) .. The Yankees were spawned from the 1890s Oriole franchise moved by the fledgling AL to NY as the Highlanders for a season then Yankees pitch to the MFY and strike his butt out four times !!  http://mickeymantle.com/500th-home-run/  
    • True, but it's all the writers that make that vote, not just NY voters.  NY writers vote's don't carry more weight than anyone else's. Agree, I like him, overall.   I'll notice.  You'll notice.  Everyone here will notice.   Poking them in the eye, repeatedly.  Very hard, sharp, quick thrusts. But also, who do you want a record set against?  You or someone else?   True. TLDR   I'm not sure when you joined but I know you've been here awhile.  I'm pretty sure we're all well aware of Judge's history against us. If you need to be reminded, it's a .314/.430/.712 slash line with 35 homers.  That's more homers against any team and by a decent amount.  He's got 28 against the Jays and then the next highest amount is 21 against the Sox.   I've seen how our guys do pitching to him for years now and the results are hardly ever pretty.  He's got 9 homers against us this year, which is more than any other team.  I'm pretty sure I know how this story ends.
    • I thought at the time that Hyde likely was saving Mullins for pinch-running in case he needed some speed for the tying run.
