While others must be content to sit and count their stash.
Come again all you baseball sophisticates and explain again to Wayward O how it's all just business.
"we made our offer, indicated that we were flexible and there was never any engagement back on their side."in other words, tex did not want to play in baltimore and fans who blame macphail for failure to sign him should revise and extend their remarks.
“It’s going to be a bit strange, because we definitely thought we would beget out there and play for pride ... very proud to be member of a $200 million bust!
pushing for a playoff spot,” Johnny Damon said. “But we owe it to the fans and
the Stadium to go out there and play hard. There’s definitely some pride aspects
to go out and play for.” [NYT]
dennis sarfate gets ball at 1 p.m. in da bronnix today. is sweep too much to ask? probably...
Not cool, big guy.
Roberts and Larry Bigbie were both rookies in 2001. According to Bigbie, both
he and Roberts lived in [David] Segui’s house in the Baltimore area during the latter part of that season. When Bigbie and Segui used steroids in the house, Roberts did not participate. According to Bigbie, however, in 2004 Roberts admitted to him that he had injected himself once or twice with steroids in 2003. Until this admission, Bigbie had never suspected Roberts of using steroids.
andruw jones, corey patterson (yes, indeed sir!), aaron rowand and torii hunter all are likely to be on merry-go-round! where she stops, nobody knOws ...
jones, once thought to be among the top four or five players in MLB, put together a hideous 2007 on offense (please don't mention steroids). patterson has never been known as a legit power threat (he once was known as potential power threat) but he is absolute vaccuum cleaner in center and he gets on and steals bases. rowand had career year in phillydelfia and one would think he'd stay but who knows? and hunter merely drove in 107 runs this year and may be premier center fielder in baseball.
if a-rod is worth $30 million per year -- which he's probably not but nevertheless if -- then what's torii worth? wayward O isn't sure what andruw jones is worth, either, but apparently braves are fully embracing youth movement; they've already traded edgar renteria to detroit for two prospects, including a guy who might be the next andruw jones in the ATL.will leave you with following THOUGHT: wayward O has mentioned this too many times but he remains stunned by the accuracy of his new "certainty points" playoff ranking system.
it's crap like this that gives talking heads like Kruk and Phillips reasonsteve is right, sadly. espn can say orioles is team where crazies run asylum and where streaks are more important than winning. based on years of evidence, who can contradict that? only thing though, kruk is more of a talking stomach than a talking head. oh and also, it does not matter what orioles do, espn is racist against them and kills them for everything. if orioles ever get good again, we'll see if espn comes around.
to say this organization is the worst in baseball and any managerial candidate
would be nuts to take the job here. -- steve
It would be surprising if new Baltimore Orioles President Andy MacPhailOK now business of brain-stimulating team incites is over, and you've had your bran flakes, now time for treat:
doesn't inquire as to the availability of his former manager with the Twins, Tom
Kelly, who led Minnesota to World Series titles in 1987 and 1991.
don't tell wayward O that doesn't make heart sing!! Orioles have SIXTEEN GAMES vs. janquis to take out frustrations and damage pinstripe egos. if nothing else, this is what wayward O is living for.
The Rockies now have more victories against the American League East
than the Yankees do, with nine. That oddity points out the Yankees’ early misery
and the Rockies’ surprising surge during interleague play. Colorado has won 9 of
its past 12 games, all against teams from the A.L. East.

watch the birdie! traitOr had his chance to make mark on world, and he choose to leave nest, fly to new york city, earn a couple extra million dollars, and get a "ring" and now with his career in its twilight wayward O has a few things to say:
BE LIKE MIKE
Yes. The Evil One May Be a Hideous Wart on the Arse of Satan. But that does not mean you abandon your mates and wander in search of gold and treasure.
The Traitor's story makes this plain.
only ten games out with a $200 million payroll?!? you can do better than that ... by end of may wayward O thinks it could be 12 or 13... how now, jeffrey maier????
