    I don't get why Shark Week is a thing.
  2. Yeah, I didn't have much of an interest in seeing it in the first place.
  3. New Last Chance U....woooooooowww... Was stoked to see it when I turned on Netflix yesterday. I like Buddy but not sure I needed to see a 3rd season of him.
  4. Podcast Recommendations

    Just started this one called "Mafia", the Sam Giancana episode. Pretty good stuff if you like true crime.

    Would like to see us trade Britton. I think that happens, too. It seems like he's the other hot player on the market now. Was listening to the BBTN podcast, they are saying its a down market this year.

    I'd be selling on Bundy and Gausman. I think we could get a good package back for Bundy. A team that can score some runs and look at him as a 3rd starter could bring back some good talent.

    Totally correct. The Orioles have shown they can hold a 120-160 million payroll, too. They just need to spend it on the right players at the right time (Manny, not Davis). Slim margin for error, absolutely. Manny leaving hasn't totally sunken in yet for me. I think it will come Friday when I tune in and he's not there.

    Looking back on it, going to the playoffs 3x in 5 years was made easier by the fact that the Sox and Yankees were underperforming. If the Orioles can do it right, build properly and tap the international market correctly, it will be an absolute dogfight in the AL East for years to come. Toronto has some good prospects up and coming, too. Can't count them out. God dammit. I might get a Dodgers hat here or something. Kinda short sighted because he might go elsewhere after the season is over but...the Dodgers are such a classic team, I've always kinda liked them.

    Yeah, team control matters. I don't think we'd have gotten that for Britton.

    I'm fairly happy with the return. Once the reports were saying that teams weren't willing to part with a top flight prospect like Hiura, Sheffield or Verdugo and the reports on Tuesday and Wednesday said it was going to be a five for one deal I had a feeling this is the type of return we'd get. There are some things to like, there seems to be 4 good upsides here with the exception of Valera who still could be a useful utility infielder. IIRC, these guys are all going to AA so we should know here pretty soon how well they're performing. Barring an Austin Hays turn for the worse, I'd expect Diaz to be in the outfield on opening day, 2019. I do love the Cuban exports, I am glad we got one. I liked the announcement that came down from DD yesterday as well. IMO, that's better than the trade. We'll see if they stick with it and how well it pans out but hopefully this is a sign of good things to come. John Angelos doesn't seem to be ****in around and I think we just saw the passing of the torch from the old man to the sons.
  13. You must be looking at the wrong beef jerky.
