If I had to guess I would say he is trying to counteract the drop in revenue he seeing coming because the O's are so far behind so early.

From the Sun:

"It's a horrible start," MacPhail said, "and it's killing you business-wise because you aren't generating any enthusiasm."

I think this is pretty accurate. And this is the chance that he took by not doing anything to significantly add to this team in the offseason. At my job, when I make calculated decisions to improve our bottom line, and they end up costings a lot of money with zero return....I don't know, I have not done that yet. But I would suspect I would be out of a job.

Wouldn't that be a 'bobblehand"?

Somebody get the promotions department on the phone! :D

I'm leaning towards a "stay the course video". Hopefully, it's more than that and something that will really shake things up a bit. Maybe they're hiring Cal afterall? Maybe AM is stepping down? Guess we'll have to wait and see...

I believe something along these lines would call for an official press conference, not a web video.

AM will announce that Terry Crowley is not really Terry Crowley but rather a body double whose real name is Dave.

He will announce that Terry has been locked this past year in the warehouse basement where he was working on the ball club's taxes and diverting money that was suppose to being spent for international scouting into a secret bank account. Terry had recently escaped through a hole in a wall that he had dug with a rock hammer. The hole had had concealed with a poster of Rita Hayworth and the hammer was later found in a book titled "The Baseball Bible Guide to Hitting."

AM now believes that after his escape Crowley cashed out the secret account that was suppose to being going to international scouting and now lives on a beach in Mexico fixing up an old boat while waiting for a good friend also named Dave to join him in retirement.

Could this be a video to announce a head coaching change to the fans?

This is baseball, not football. ;) (sorry, a pet peeve of mine)

Anyway, I'd be very disappointed in MacPhail if he handled a manager change in that fashion.
