I am amazed when I see past O's teams and I don't recognize some of the names. Who the heck are these people...

Keith Osik

Winston Abreu

Bernie Castro

Wow. Not saying I've been a diehard O's fan for years but I have followed them pretty much exclusively since I was a young boy.

I mean we have no owner that gives a crap. So do you expect us to have a manager that has that same attuide

True, PA doesn't seem to give a flying crap most of the time. But that doesn't excuse the manager or anybody else for not caring. C'mon this is baseball! When I play sports, I play hard! I don't care about the personality of my owner/manager/teammates. I play all out 100%. No excuse for not doing that.

This isn't an NBA arena.

It's "the shortstop, number 15, Christian Guzman."

Not: "Christian Guuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuzzzman"

Have you been to a game at Nats Park? They treat a baseball game very differently down there. I'm not a fan.

The players are using this as a excuse for their playing. When is the last time the Oriole had a decent pitcher or a power hitter? before Peter Angleos was here.

Are you serious? The players are using this as their excuse? Where have you seen them say this? If the players are not playing 100%, they all need to be sent to the minors. This is professional baseball, the fans expect you to play 100% all out. Of course we also expect that out of the owner, sadly we're not getting that. Doesn't excuse the players though...

Come on man. None of what you just said is even remotely true.

Oh yeah, twice. This Friday and last year's Friday game down there.

I am not a fan of it at all. That place is an entertainment complex, not a baseball park. I despise the NatPack (their enthusiasm clan that walks around) and even more so, those 2 people that have that between-inning entertainment show on the big screen. The fans are worthless; no one is in the least enthusiastic.

My friend and I counted how many people would walk past us in our seats DURING a half-inning. It was 57. Now, I don't have comparisons to what it'd be at OPACY, but it was incredible.

Their "fans" go to the park to be entertained, not watch a baseball game. I'm a pretty conservative guy when it comes to baseball. I hate the alternate and fashion caps, and the Build-a-Bar and Playstation Zone at Nats Park makes it even worse.

    • Uh huh... see all of my posts about the more to SS than just arm strength. It's ok.. keep circling this. If the O's end up moving on from Gunnar in five or six years and they slide JH over to SS then, I'm sure that you will come back and point to how you predicted him as a ML SS in 2024. Good fer you, bud.     
    • We knew he was healthy last summer, no?   He pitched in five games in August/September and was throwing 96, I believe.  
    • How was I wrong about something that is yet to be proven?     And you have definitely hinted that he won’t be a good option at SS now or in the future…and that is with or without Gunnar or Ortiz.
    • Pretty sure that I've stated consistently that I feel that he will improve and that he can probably play there but that he's never going to be their top defensive option at a premier defensive position, on a team that has demonstrated their prioritization of defense up the middle. It's ok that you were wrong about something. I know that's difficult for you to accept.  
    • This is true..for 2024. We will see if this is true beyond that. There is more to SS than just arm strength.  I doubt Holliday will ever have Gunnar’s arm strength, no matter how much he works on it. 
    • When you have Gunnar Henderson on the team, I don’t believe Holliday moves him off SS.  If I’m reading baseball savant correctly, Gunnar averages 84 mph on his throws and topped at 90.2. I’m not saying Holliday isn’t special, I’m just saying Gunnar is the better fit at SS and Holliday is going to start the year at 2B. There are plenty of teams that Holliday would be there starting SS but the Os aren’t one. He may fill in there. 
    • romorr 1:02 If there was a Baltimore Oriole pitching prospect in next years top 100, can you give me your two best guesses? Baumeister and De Leon?   Eric A Longenhagen 1:02 nailed it with Baumeister i think   1:03 you guys are good at this and basically guessing the names in this next piece   jakefromboonesfarm 1:03 Lots of distance between major rankings of Kjerstad/Cowser, neither of whom blew any doors off in majors last year.  What separates them so much in your eval?   Eric A Longenhagen 1:04 Kjerstad's physicality and barrel control > Cowser. Cowser is a more discerning hitter but doesn't have nearly as much physical talent. Heston looked bulky and strong during '22 AFL, looked super cut and explosive in 2023, I thought he hit a different gear
