I hear that guy on every once and a while. I will change the channel and end up back on his station. He is usually still ranting about the same thing 2 hours later. I laughed just the other day about that. It was like he was on repeat.

He doesn't get left on the radio anymore and that was before these comments.

I apologize if someone else brought this up, but the Red Sox were really angry when Teixeira signed with the Yankees because they felt like he used them to get the big contract from the Yankees.

I can pretty much guarantee the Red Sox fans will boo the crap of him the first time he plays there.

Then what will all these "experts" say?

I was thinking the same thing.

The experts will point to the heated rivalry that is the best in the Milky Way. Just par for the course for Yankees-Sawx. Can't wait to contend again and force them to talk about us.

No offense, but as long as there is a dial, a power-off button, or the sound of the wind, there is always another choice ;)

But sometimes its so brutal when your choice is Bulldog talking about BL Football, Terrapin Times on Haynie, or Cowherd. Noon radio hour can either be great or terrible.

Ha! Yeah, I usually bow out on the Herd when he starts cackling about USC football for the 4th time in the 1st half hour. I have Sirius, so I usually listen to Timmy B. Pissed that my radio can't handle best of XM for mlb channel.

This is true, very true. How Bulldog is still on the air is beyond me. Haynie needs to get out of 1570 in the worst way.

The so called "experts" will just say that it's "good ol' Red Sox-Yankee baseball!":rolleyes:

WWBCD? - What Would Bob Costas Do?

If Bob Costas or someone in the sports world said what CC said - what would our reaction be?

Incredulous that someone as brillient and knowledgable as Bob Costas would say such a moronic thing, followed by chalking it up to an "everybody gets one" type of mistake.

I disagree completely and entirely. Even the idea that he's actually a bad person for choosing the Yankees seems absurd to me.
I don't know if it's more disconcerting that the fans have such a visceral over-the-top negative reaction to a human being who simply made a business decision that very few of us would have made differently -- or that they actually seem to believe their own rhetoric.

If it was a dungeons and dragons kind of thing, where folks are role-playing just for fun ... okay, it's a bit immature, but I suppose all part of the fan experience, for those who get their jollies from getting so intensely emotional about this. But what scares me is that it seems to carry over into real life for so many. Much as I love the O's as a recreational outlet, I recognize that it's just a friggin game. Seems like a lot of the fans don't recognize that distinction. Unreal.

If I were in his situation, I'd take less money to go to the Orioles, because that's where my heart would be.

His situation would be different in that he was more of a Yankee fan and wanted to win right now. I think that was what the decision was based on.

    • Until he gets those walks down, I'm not going to get my hopes up on him being a productive Major League pitcher.
    • Seems like there's a chance he goes on IL today with a calf strain, though he has avoided the IL in recent years when similarly banged up.  Pretty curious who they would bring up. Kjerstad is most deserving but not really a good 1:1 for Hays' RH bat + defense combo. McKenna is an option. Burdick. Norby maybe. 
    • He can be traded or he can play here but if he stays here, they will find him the at bats. Every team every year has guys getting several hundred at bats that aren’t very good. Norby is good, so you can find those at bats.
    • Or Jimi--they shd amp it up during the anthem
    • Are those ABs for the Orioles or another MLB franchise? Because the only ABs that I can see for him right now is as a RH DH or to take Hays’ role (temporarily) if there is an injury and that makes the assumption he can cover the OF in a competent way defensively. I am not trying to besmirch Norby’s talent. I think he is absolutely a big leaguer, who has earned a promotion. I just don’t see it being with this org, given the shape/tilt of the roster and makeup of talent throughout the org. The fact is that we have graduated 5 prospects (not including Holliday who still has prospect status) to the Majors. - 5 position players (1 traded away) and 1 pitcher. And we have what, another 4 top position player prospects ahead of Norby (including Holliday). And ZERO top pitching prospects. I get that some (not saying you) have this notion that all our prospects MUST one day play for the Orioles. But with the lack of top end pitching prospects combined with Burnes pending FA and the iffiness of Bradish’s health, we are going to need the pitching to come from somewhere.
    • There are so many examples of LHP with movement and location over stuff. He never really had the blow it by you stuff,so I’m surprised it’s taken him this long to alter his plan. Just like Suarez he can definitely have 2 more starts pending Bradish return.
    • This is a reason I don’t want to sign him long term. I think he’s going to be a very solid guy for the next several years but I’m not paying him ace level money.  Just don’t see him being that good 3+ years from now. If we could sign him for 5/200 or less, I would do it but that’s not likely to get it done.
