  1. 2017 Baltimore Orioles Thread - We suck again!

    Here's the article: https://www.fanragsports.com/heyman-orioles-have-no-intention-of-shopping-manny-machado/ While it says they have no intention of shopping him, it DOESN'T say that they aren't NOT taking phonecalls on him. Bit of a difference. Semantics, really. Part of me thinks, well, they signed Roberts, Nick, Jones, Davis...the Orioles have done a pretty good job over the years of extending their own. I don't think there was any interest in bringing Wieters back and that was fine. But the other part of me is like, this is just another beast altogether and the fact that they've kept their own doesn't matter as all of those deals combined would probably be what it'd take to keep him.

    Manny hit his 33rd tonight. Never would have expected he'd get over 30 after the way his season started.
  3. Marvel's Punisher Netflix series

    That's exactly why I've always liked him, too. I was never huge into comic books and comic book heroes but Punisher was the exception. Just a guy who was hell bent on revenge and using awesome weapons to do it. No weird backstory origins, it's all very simple, black and white. I'm excited for this. But that trailer was amazing. As soon as I heard One playing I was hooked. Not that I wouldn't have been hooked before, but the way they used that song was excellent.
  4. Per Schefter: Su'a Cravens Considering Retirement

    I was being sarcastic I get it, I just don't think it's a big deal. In two weeks no one will be giving a **** about Su'a Cravens. This is my last post on the subject, I think we've all said everything we've needed to say and no one is changing anyone's mind here.

    Highest I saw was 98. Looks like he has good stuff.

    Cause some people think this is a big ass deal.

    Tanner Scott, MLB debut. Let's see if he can hit triple digits.
  8. 2017 Baltimore Orioles Thread - We suck again!

    I feel ya. I'm watching for the offense, really. Even though I've seen thousands of Adam Jones at bats, I still want to watch him. I marvel at him when he lays off the low and outside slider. He's still fun to watch. Definitely watching for Mancini and Hays. Watching for Machado because he's one of the best, and we don't know how much longer he'll be here, so gotta enjoy it while it lasts. Watching for Beckham because I really think we got a late bloomer and he'll be a stud for us for years to come. Even if he's a .270/.325/.500 SS, an .825 or so OPS out of the SS position is pretty awesome. Even Davis and Trumbo, maybe they can go deep. ****in Miley. What a terrible pickup.

    No Machado and Beckham tonight? My interest in this game is quickly deteriorated.
  10. Per Schefter: Su'a Cravens Considering Retirement

    You're right, good teams are built through the draft, but one draft pick walking away isn't going to kill a franchise, unless you traded multiple picks to get up and select a QB. You'd be correct if multiple players walked away, that would REALLY kill their ability to obtain and develop a talented roster. Puzzling you don't understand that Su'a Cravens wasn't a lynchpin for any part of this team. Oh my god, what if he goes to Dallas? WHAT IF HE GOES TO DALLAS??? What if Su'a Cravens goes to Dallas, how will we cope?? OH MY GOD THE HORROR!! THE POWER OF THE NFC EAST WILL HAVE SWUNG COMPLETELY TO DALLAS! They'll be contenders for the next 5-10 years. Best safety ever.

    Yeah, we need that guy. I mean if you're gonna spend, it's probably the safest money you can spend in the offseason. I know we need the pitching but it's just so hard to pay a guy who could blow out his elbow any second. Probably have to do it, though.
  12. 2017 Baltimore Orioles Thread - We suck again!

    Wouldn't be opposed to any of it, but I'd really hesitate at 12/400. One good thing is that Stanton has finally produced a season like he's being paid for. Manny might NOT be able to get more than Stanton money now. I hope, at least.
  13. Per Schefter: Su'a Cravens Considering Retirement

    No idea. Not to be flippant, I honestly don't care, it's his issue that he has to take care of.
  14. Can't even get the right Yankees team. 1927. 1953? Sure, they were good but why them? I don't mind Westy, I think it's done with a wink and a nod.
  15. 2017 Baltimore Orioles Thread - We suck again!

    Yeah, I think that's what they'll do, too. My other hope is if they fail to lock him up this offseason I they try to trade him at the deadline next summer. The O's open up the bidding on him and allow teams to negotiate a long term deal with him before trading (that's allowed, right?) before pulling the trigger. We'll get a good return. I would like to say I'd go ****ing ape**** if they let him walk but I think I'm just resigned to the fact that this'll probably happen and we'll just get a comp pick. It's been coming for three years, no need to get mad about it, just depressed.
