Ugh god this press conference is awful I can't even stand watching him up there mentioning his great Baltimore herritage and growing up in Baltimore and loving Cal and Eddie..while wearing a Yankee jersey and standing in front of a Yankee banner.

If he really wanted to be here, he'd be here. Let's move on, folks...

Well that press conference made me sick.

It is all on Angelos on what he has done to this organization.

He needs to sell this team before we have any chance of turning it around.

Building youth is great but if you are just going to develop players who leave as soon as they reach free agency its just a moot point.

What kind of jacka$$ goes to an O's game to waatch Cal and Eddie wering a Yankee hat.:no::puke::puke::puke:

As much as it pains me, everything he's saying makes him sound true to himself. He says he wore a Yankees hat at O's games. He wants to win the world series. If those things are true, then he wasn't the die-hard Oriole fan we apparently thought he was, and he was never going to come here.

So we should stop feeling like the second coming of Cal Ripken just stabbed us in the back and went to the evil empire. Other than growing up near Baltimore, he apparently didn't have any other linkage to the Orioles.

Unless he's lying. ;)

Regardless, let's move on.

I totally agree with you.

Well, that press conference should put to rest the idea Mark Teixeira grew up an Orioles fan, if it wasn't obvious already. He basically gloated he wore a Yankees hat to Oriole games. And the guys on ESPN3, ugh I mean the MLB network said it was his boyhood dream to be a Yankee.

Well, nice smile there Mark. Lets see how big your smile is in June, when your off to your typical slow start, and when your hitting .260 10 40 in june, and the NY media is slamming you. Will you and Leigh love NY then!?

And I'm really sick of hearing how the Yankees spending is good for baseball. Its good for Yankee fans, that's all imo.

    • This is all true. And inversely, Ortiz has the first half of the season at AAA to hit enough to demand Mateo's job.  It works both ways.  
    • It also let’s us get a better look at some of these prospects, to see what we have. I think it’s smarter to be patient and not start trading our big trade chips just yet. Hernaiz was definitely expendable, so I’m really happy with this trade. Ideally, by the trade deadline, Holliday has shown signs that he’s the future at SS and we can confidently trade from our depth at SS to improve our pitching again. 
    • Only way a Profar-Orioles rumor makes sense is if it came from Profar's agent.
    • I don't think he's ever going to comfortably part with the top guys in the system until there are clearly established players on the ML team that would actually block those players he'd be looking at trading. For example, I think once Gunnar and whomever of Westburg/Norby/Ortiz/Mayo lock down two spots (and assuming Holliday is ascending), at that point he'll look to trade whoever hasn't earned regular playing time (but is hopefully still maintaining trade value by performing well in AAA). I think he's worried of trading the wrong guys and having whoever he's left with bust at the ML level, especially if it's in pursuit of a pitcher with minimal long-term team control.
    • Interesting it's possible, I've never cared for either of the brothers so maybe Louis is in the right. I just want the team to get sold and out of this dysfunctional family's hands. 
    • Looking at some of his stats for the last two years, he really looks like the type of guy we would've ran out there for the 2012-2016 teams. H/9, K/9, BB/9, HR/9, WHIP, and K/BB all fall into ranges you would see from Tillman, Chen, Miguel Gonzales, Bud Norris, etc. They all generally had higher ERA+, I assume on account of the ballpark factors? At a glance his numbers from his two years in Oakland match up very similarly to Chen's first two years in Baltimore (2012-2013). I'd be interested in how their stuff compares and if there could be a comp there for those who may know more. I don't think he's dominant by any stretch, but I'm hopeful he can be a solid SP to a playoff rotation over the next four years.
    • I guess the only question left is whether Urias and Mateo are still on the opening day roster. The IF still seems a little crowded with Westburg and Ortiz knocking on the door.    My guess at this point is they both start the season here but at least one of them is in another uniform after the trade deadline.
