I just have to ask...... Does anyone know if Greg Zaun is Rick Dempsey's nephew?

Gregory Owen Zaun...Married... Graduated from St. Francis (CA) High School in 1989... Earned Delrey League MVP honors his senior year... Was a member of the gold-winning Team USA at the 1989 World Junior Championships... Played in the 1989 U.S. Olympic Festival... Is the nephew of former Major League catcher Rick Dempsey... His uncle, Pat, spent 11 years in pro baseball... Mother, Cherie, is a former pro golfer and former women's golf coach at the University of Southern California...Prior to the beginning of the 2007 season, joined the athlete-driven international humanitarian organization, "Right To Play"...He was Major League Baseball's first representative... Supported Right To Play by originally donating $1,000 for every runner he threw out during the season...Gregg & his wife, Jamie, presented "Right to Play" with a cheque for $25,000 in September.

So yes.

Hunter and Dempsey are getting old real quick.

They are terrible. I don't mind Dempsey so much on the O's Xtra parts, but as a regular announcer he is terrible. He just says whatever pops into his head, whether it is any way representative of reality or not.

    • Works for me,  as long as the first piece is a Norby type!  Only one of Ortiz/Westburg/Cowser/Kjerstad should be traded for Cease.  Let them pick one of them and a couple in the 8-15 range then a lottery pick or two if needed.  But giving up 2 of those is to pricy for the return.  I like Cease, but personally value him as a very solid #3 starter.  Sure, he COULD perform better than that,  but I wouldn't bet on it.  Maybe he reverts back to his 2022 form, but I think it more likely that what we get is what we saw from him in 2023, with an improvement in numbers due to the defense behind him. 
    • Exited about this kid and the future of our international signings. We have to remember the initial reporting don’t mean a whole lot. We’ve had success in the 100-500 k range too.
    • Downtown restaurants should like this too.  Much better for any local entertainment venues.
    • Cease is a solid MLB starting pitcher with 2 years of control  who's team has clearly made it known that he's available.  Of course there is a lot of interest.  There is a lot of interest in the Orioles' prospects, as well.  Fans of both teams are hopeful that their team will get maximum value for their assets in any trade.  I'm sure that it is sometimes difficult for GMs to reach a meeting of the minds on a player's value, in which case they need to work out a restructure of the discussed deal that may not include that player.  I think Elias' opinion on Ortiz is likely to be pretty close to what posters on this site are telling you.  If the White Sox GM views Ortiz as you do, it would seem that a deal between the two teams would most likely not have Ortiz included.  I'm sure that isn't all that unusual and the GMs just turn the page and look at working out a trade involving other players/prospects.  What confuses me is that you seem to rate Ortiz lower than we do and lower than the various sites rate him, but would like a trade of Cease for Cowser and Ortiz.  I'm against that deal because I think 2 prospects rated that highly would be an overpay.  It seems to me, you agree.  You simply rate Ortiz lower.  Seems to me that the answer in such an impasse that would make both parties happy would be to replace Ortiz with another prospect that is lower rated than Ortiz -- which would be of equal value in your mind, since you rate Ortiz lower and still think the proposed trade is a fair one.  Make sense?  Maybe replace Ortiz with Norby.
    • I would definitely do Westburg  and Cowser.
    • 100% agree with you.  Especially when you haves waves of prospects coming up behind these guys.
