  1. Vaya Con Dios, Manny! The plight of the 2018 Orioles

    Looking at todays box score. Jones and manny are 3 for 5. Keep upping your value fellas, we appreciate it. Davis has the lowest slugging % in the lineup with a .250 for the season to go with his .240 BA. That basically means 95% of his hits are singles, right? Wow. that damage to contact ratio buck loves crediting Davis for is just ..... this is abysmal.
  2. What to do with LG

    Bills G John Miller (24 yrs old - 3rd R in 2015) No one has any idea what the Bills offense line is going to look like when the team lines up against the Baltimore Ravens Week 1. At center, it’s expected that free agent signee Russell Bodine will compete against former backup Ryan Groy. If Groy doesn’t end up being the starter at center, he may then factor in to the John Miller/Vlad Ducasse/Wyatt Teller battle royale at guard. Meanwhile at right tackle, newcomer Marshall Newhouse will look to unseat surprisingly entrenched starter Jordan Mills. https://www.buffalorumblings.com/2018/5/24/17387364/buffalo-bills-starting-roles-quarterback-defensive-end-receiver-guard-tackle-center-offensive-line edit Ducasse may be avail but is 30, Ryan Groy is 27 (61.3 PFF grade last year). Wyatt Teller they just drafted in the 5th R so I doubt they move/cut him or new FA Bodine. Bills and Cards seem like they have a plethora of interior OL talent. Im looking for other teams.

    Its not the return we had hoped for but since we didnt move manny last year, its always been a steadily diminishing return since Manny is now a half year rental. Perhaps this creates urgency for other teams to make an offer or increase what they are offering.

    Roy Firestone says he heard form reliable source that the Os are close to dealing Manny to Cubs for Baez, Mike Montgomery and a pitching prospect. http://forum.orioleshangout.com/forums/index.php?/topic/31886-cubs-rumored-to-have-deal-offer-for-manny/
  5. Standing during the Pledge or National Anthem

    I never said any player was disruptive. I support players kneeling. My sentence included people and players. Just dont talk as in dont talk during the anthem. Talk and explain why you kneel before and afterwards all you want. Go to schools and talk to the kids. Give interviews. Be a speaker at graduations and city festivals and gatherings. Get your voice out there, players have a tremendous platform. My original post was pretty clear and I think you knew what I meant and intended. edit - let me be clear and throw you some red meat bc that seems to be what you are looking for. If someone talks or acts up during the anthem, they should anticipate and expect to get an ear full when the anthem is done.
  6. Standing during the Pledge or National Anthem

    I think some people do think the kneeling is done to be anti-american and anti-military. I think some people understand the kneeling is done for police-racial injustice and dont think it is anti-american or anti-military but think the Anthem is the wrong time and platform to make a civil rights display of grievance. I stand but if someone wants to sit or player wants to kneel, im 100% for that. Go for it, just dont talk or be disruptive please. I wish the issue would go away. (ironically .. a lot of discussion on here is people thinking the salute and honor to our military is being shoved down their throats and needs to be dialed down or removed ... when the kneeling and protests werent supposed to be anti-military .. maybe it actually is anti-traditional america for some of you after reading the focus on the comments.)
  7. Standing during the Pledge or National Anthem

    The second a team fines a player, it will go to the Courts to interpret whether this is allowed under the CBA and if it is, whether it is a legal and enforceable under employment/contract law. This isnt going away. The second a player is fined it will trigger years of litigation with the NFL seeking binding arbitration and the NFLPA filing an injunction/lawsuit in a favorable federal court district. NFL files a stay of the injunction, etc .. by this point we are all legal experts on federal employment law after following the Brady And Elliot sagas. 1st issue for arbitration? Whether this has to be arbitrated. NFL should have just said the Anthem will be played 20 mins prior to kick off and players will remain in the locker room. Afterwards, players can come out and warm up for kick off. Done and done.
  8. He was also fined $5,000 for a "major face-mask" that occurred on an extra-point attempt in the second quarter of the Rams' 19-17 win, and resulted in a 15-yard penalty on the ensuing kickoff just before halftime. Incognito additionally was fined $5,000 for a chop block, according to the source. That occurred on a pass play in the second quarter of the game as well, and was not penalized on the field, but was detected on film of the game (a chop block is normally a 15-yard penalty). http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/10/17/AR2008101702953.html ------ -------------------------------- The day after the game, Ngakoue said it happened after a running play, but he could not recall if Incognito used the N-word. "No, I don't remember, but, you know, he said what he said," Ngakoue said on Jan. 8. "He knows what he said. I don't have to repeat it." Ngakoue, whose father is a native of Cameroon and whose mother is from the West Indies, said Incognito insulted his ethnicity. "What happened on the field that day is an exchange between two men in the setting of a football game," Incognito told TheMMQB.com. "We're gonna keep it between us. Out of peace and armistice, we are just going to keep it between us. http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/22214999/buffalo-bills-richie-incognito-apologized-jacksonville-jaguars-yannick-ngakoue-accusation-racial-slurs ------------------------------------------ Me personally, Im going to wait to see if the Skins actually sign him before I start the mental gymnastics of chalking up his entire career and rep as just being "passionate". The guys a certified *jerk. I personally dont care if he is a *jerk or not. I only care about if he helps this team win and wont be a locker room distraction. But Im not going to sugar coat him. If he signs with us, I think we have an *jerk at LG that helps us win. Im fine with that. edit * The word I orig used was not jerk and I assumed it would be filtered out but it wasnt. Its a word that can be used as a noun in the same sentence where jerk is used as the verb. Really surprised that word wasnt filtered out.
  9. 12.9M is our estimated cap space for our current top 51. That means we can still add an impact player and perhaps re-up Scherff or Crowder. Id rather add a starting caliber LG over another LB. More decent to good players still to be released imo. http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/washington-redskins/cap/
  10. Eagles are releasing Mycal Kendricks. I was surprised they held onto him at the beginning of FA given their cap situation and I thought the Skins would be very interested. Eagles players seem to love him and credit him for huge amount of success and lining up right on D etc. I understand the Eagles wanted to keep him .. but they did the guy a dis service by releasing him now. Teams may have already filled that need like we did with Zach Brown. I wanted Kendricks over Z Brown.
  11. What to do with LG

    HELL NO .... I would be strongly against adding another HUGE contract to the guard position. If we added Lang, we'd have 2 of the top 16 contracts for guards in 2018. For 2019, wed have 2 of the 6 highest paid guards. Guard is NOT where you spend your cap space imo. We're already cap heavy at TE, 2nd highest cap % to position. We need a Chris Chester or Randy Thomas type addition. Solid vet making middle of the road type money. You dont over pay for guards. We already have a top 3 guard in Scherff. We have to show Scherff the money anyway before his option year 12.5 cap hits. Do we want to give Scherff's money to Lang? Ill be damned if we sign both.

    Because we have the smallest scouting dept with the lowest scouting department budget in the MLB. Signing a Trumbo is a short term quick fix to try and make it look like ownership is invested. I honestly think Angelos allows our major league payroll to be middle to top 1/3 to deflect and mask how little we actually pay for operational budgets like scouting, etc. New ownership will have to build a scouting department from the ground up.
  14. NBC: At least nine dead in Santa Fe High School Shooting

    An article from The New York Times in 2001 outlines the actions taken by former Smith & Wesson CEO Ed Shultz: Last March, in an attempt to defuse lawsuits the company was facing from at least 29 municipalities that held handgun manufacturers responsible for violent crimes, Mr. Shultz entered into an agreement with the federal government. He said that Smith & Wesson would include locks on its handguns, research and implement ''smart-gun'' technology that would only allow the owner of a gun to operate it and improve the way retailers sold its products. The NRA was beyond furious. It questioned his experience. Its members were told "that Smith & Wesson "became the first gun maker to run up the white flag of surrender and duck behind the Clinton-Gore lines." The result was "a boycott by the National Rifle Association" that "made Smith & Wesson an industry outcast," the Times reported in 2006. Shultz left the gun maker by September. http://www.businessinsider.com/smith-and-wesson-took-the-lead-on-safety-2012-12 Smart guns are where this is going imo. --------------------------------------------------- Two United States Senators -– Joe Manchin, a Democrat from West Virginia, and Pat Toomey, a Republican from Pennsylvania, both gun owners, both strong defenders of our Second Amendment rights, both with “A” grades from the NRA –- that’s hard to get — worked together in good faith, consulting with folks like our Vice President, who has been a champion on this for a long time, to write a common-sense compromise bill that would have required virtually everyone who buys a gun to get a background check. That was it. Pretty common-sense stuff. Ninety percent of Americans supported that idea. Ninety percent of Democrats in the Senate voted for that idea. But it failed because 90 percent of Republicans in the Senate voted against that idea. http://time.com/4168056/obama-gun-control-speech-transcript/ I miss Obama so much ...

    "As you probably know, he gave himself up and admitted at the time he didn't have the courage to commit the suicide, that he wanted to take his own life earlier," Abbott added.
