Angelos would only go 3 years. Nick wanted four and the Braves gave it to him.

OPS+ 104 his last year here. They were scared of his neck disk. I didn't blame them. They were wrong. Now I kind of do.

mike. You've fallen to the level of quoting a dictator and murderer on intolerance and conformity? You can't see the irony?


Why not? Because we won't agree with you?

Markakis quit just in time, or his retirement allowed them to run. Dunno how well he was playing toward the end. There's no year when he was in Atlanta, that he wouldn't have been our best RF in Baltimore.

It's indeed sad when a dictator has a more sensible outlook on this than supposedly "intelligent" and "educated"people in the West.

The confused sexuality of an insignificant minority of people is not a school subject.

Seeing them back in the WS and looking at their string of first place finishes calls to mind Elias' saying that he doesn't want to build A good team in Baltimore but a succession of them.

A few of you here will remember that we had this once, many years ago with the "Oriole Way" organization. There was the first wave of "Baby Birds" in the early 1960's through the early 1980's w/Ripken, Boddicker, and Dauer. They had talent at every minor league level back then, and we have some of that now.

Article 4, Section 3 of the US Constitution.
" - - -nor any state be formed by the junction of two or more states, or parts of states, without the consent of the legislatures of the states concerned as well as of the Congress.'
nor any state be formed by the junction of two or more states, or parts of states, without the consent of the legislatures of the states concerned as well as of the Congress.
Having taken pre-law and Constitutional history the above section occurred to me.

To say that there are some really dumb ass conservative politicos in western Maryland is a tautology. (You can look it up.)

Miz pogo noticed an article in the NYT about this and mentioned it to me. She thought that Md should just let them go. My thought was that they should be forced to live in what is to them the living hell of a liberal state.
I also thought that West Va has enough problems without adding more righty population. Miz pogo also thought to look up the populations and wealth of the three counties. They are very wealthy without much population.

You may wonder how West Virginia got formed during the Civil War given the above piece of the Constitution. Basically they violated it using the reasoning that Virginia was not a valid state as it had seceded.
This was at the same time that Congress also said that Virginia did not have the right to secede , that being one thing that the Civil War was fought over.
Nice reasoning huh? Basically it was wartime so little things like the Constitution weren't real important. It should be now.

I was thinking of the Astro Way. They're back in the WS again. The pitching from the Verlander/Cole/Morton team is flipped. I don't know for whom. Nevertheless, they persist. It's interesting when applied to what's building in our minor league system.

I expect that the turds on that list that don't return will be replaced by new turds.

Looks like they can afford to give up a lot of these pitchers w/no great loss.

Fernando Abad
Mike Baumann
Marcos Diplán
Chris Ellis
Paul Fry
Conner Greene
Eric Hanhold
Joey Krehbiel
Dean Kremer
Brooks Kriske
Zac Lowther
Isaac Mattson
John Means
Tanner Scott
Cole Sulser
Dillon Tate
Spenser Watkins
Tyler Wells
Alexander Wells
Bruce Zimmermann

The apparent locks to remain are Baumann, Ellis, Fry, Kremer, Lowther, Means, Scott, Sulser, Tate, Zimmermann, Tyler Wells and Alexander Wells. Mattson had a difficult and disappointing season at Norfolk and with the Orioles, but you probably can include him, as well. He should get a mulligan.

Don't have a link but read an article earlier that claims there will almost certainly be a work stoppage starting in December and that owners will put a freeze on signing any free agents until they get a new agreement. I personally would love to see the owners finally fix this by putting in a salary cap. owners also want to only give players free agency when the player is 29 and a half years old, not the current 6 years.

The Dodgers had a 300 million dollar payroll this year... the Pirates were at 58 million.... Ofcourse Pittsburgh could've spent more but something needs to be done...a salary cap...
