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.

Methinks you watched too many movies this weekend. Even if they were good ones :clap3: :P

I think MacPhail is going to announce his new strategy to improve the team.

He is going to enroll all Oriole players in Maharishi Central University, in New York, in an effort to promote total brain functioning, enlightenment, and full development of their mind, body and behavior. He believes that if it worked for The Beatles, it can work for the Orioles.

I'm guessing it's to try to calm the masses/convince people to buy tickets.

It will definitely be a "stay the course," type video.

Unfortunately for Andy, I think many of us know that we are passengers on the Titanic already...

Have you ever seen the movie The Ten Commandments? You remind me of Lathan in that movie (

He's gonna open up with an overview of his plan, apologize for a horrible start for the season, tell everyone to rest assured that the Orioles are doing everything they can and to stay the course.

Nice to see he isn't ducking and running.

I agree it'll probably be PR. But good PR, a nice gesture.

Or a demonstration of how to make a bomb out of Mentos and Diet Coke.

Just win ballgames. I don't need you to tell me anything. As my mom always says " don't tell me, show me."

Ah the Mike Singletary quote. As a 49er fan I recognize it well:


Think we could get this in orange and black?

All joking aside, I don't want to hear an apology from MacPhail.

I want to hear how we are going to fix it and I want him to commit to a deadline that we need to be competitive.

No more of this "the fans will determine when" crap. Set a date and go for it.

I also want him to commit to winning games and saying they are going to look at ramping up the talent at the ML level as soon as June or July regardless of our record. If the players are available that can help us now and in the future, we go get them.

The second half of this season needs to be one to build on, not one to forget by dumping the vets and tanking yet another season.

    • As in, another instance and you'd want him gone? Elias and the FO are building a foundation that will enable them to be a team I haven't witnessed in my lifetime - a consistent competitive team. I have 100% confidence in the process of the FO. Will every decision pan out? Of course not. But has the FO helped the organization more than any other FO in my lifetime? Without a doubt. My much greater concern is that Elias, Sig, et al leave because another organization realizes how valuable they are.
    • Opening Day Is a 3:05 gane start at Csmden Yards.They  are going to open the gates three hours before the game?  Have not heard this but you may be right. Fenway which usually does an 11/2 gate opening ,is doing a 2 hour gate opening for Opening Day. 
    • Don't see a final roster posted yet.  If so, I missed it.
    • On balance I think it's fair to expect the improved rotation and regressed bullpen will even out, so pitching overall for the team will remain about the same. Meanwhile the hitting should definitely improve!
    • At 76.5 I'll take the over on the O's and pass on betting their place in the standings.  While I'm pretty upset with this past off season, I'm not quite ready to grab a pitchfork.  Given that Westburg and Cowser and several others could all be ready to contribute soon, Elias should have a fair amount of flexibility at the trade deadline.  Was that his strategy all along?  Beats the heck out of me, but if that's the case and we sit and watch another failure to launch (liftoff v2.0 anyone?) then most of the goodwill I have toward him evaporates overnight.  Bottom line?  The 2022 O's earned a bigger investment than they've received so far but it's not too late to fix it.
    • MLB and the newly-unionized minor leagues just struck a new CBA.  Doubles AAA salaries with even bigger raises for the lower minors.  Now minor leaguers *almost* make a liveable wage.
    • I won't lie, I'm very concerned about not having Tate in the bullpen for a month or 2. Tate was our most reliable reliever. Hyde could always count on him to get the job done. I thought Givens could fill the gap, but now Givens is injured too. Someone is going to have to seriously step up for the bullpen. I'm also convinced that Tyler Wells has a limited number of innings he can be effective. We've seen what happened last year once he got beyond a certain threshold. (He got injured.) I think that after a couple months, we might see either Voth, Baumann, Hall, or Rodriguez take some starts in that rotation spot. Who it is, depends on how Rodriguez and Hall are doing in Norfolk. If one of them is dominating, that's who will get the call.
