    rather not say
  1. GM can't pay 350 million to a player that would have to come from the owner. I don't see Angelos just throwing his money away like that. If Manny gets that much money it won't be from the Orioles. I would think a 6 year deal would be more likely. 3 years of additional salary in arbitration for 3 years of extra commitment to the team. Anyway now that he got his 5 million dollars for this year I doubt it will happen. Easier to get him to extend his deal when he is making 500k a year and hanging out with guys making 20 million a year. The Orioles have Machado, Jones, and Davis for the next 3 years. These are there years to compete. After that Manny goes and hopefully we have developed some real talent by then or it will time for a rebuild
  2. I doubt 30 million will be the standard for players. Guys like Gordon, Cespedes, Davis, and Upton aren't even getting 20 million a year. There is a limit to what team can pay. Money is not unlimited. Salaries have grown to quickly. Expect things to slow down. Also genetic defect or not surgeries on your knees at 20 are not a good sign. I doubt he would pass Peter Angelos team physical for a contract like that.
  3. What do you care about how much it is? It isn't coming out of your pocket.
  4. Angelos will be 93 when Davis contract expires. He will most likely turn over control to his sons before too long.
  5. Well the team isn't giving a guy who had two major knee surgeries by the time he was 21 a ten year + contract. If it takes 300 million to extend him expect to see him playing for the Yankees in 2019. Baseball Reference says most similar player through age 22 is Beltre. Beltre will make less than 200 million in his career. Perhaps you are misguided.
  6. I don't see how another Porter trial will help them anyway. He still faces possible federal charges. So how would he be forced to testify? I think the prosecutors will definitely lose the appeal. And I think if Porter is convicted he appeals he is conviction and ask for a new trial outside of Baltimore city. So once again it could be that he doesn't have to testify because of that.
  7. Better kick Cal Ripken and Nolan Ryan out then.
  8. Pete should be kept out of baseball he should be elected to the Hall of Fame. With Bonds, Clemens and Rose out of the Hall of Fame it is a joke. You have the guy with the most home runs ever and the guy with the most hits ever both out of the Hall of Fame. Also keeping a guy out with 7 Cy Young awards.
  9. The Orioles haven't signed big dollar free agents. Why do you expect this year to be different? If you require them to make big moves for you to keep being a fan you would have left a long time ago.
  10. I like a 7 year contract with deferred money. Angelos would be 94 when the 7 years is up and will still have to pay until he is into what his 100's for Chris Davis. The team can't afford Davis time to move on.
  11. We'll I am sure they would be willing to pay more a year for a shorter contract. Anyway I don't think Chris Davis is worth close to that. He hit .199 a year ago and was suspended for drugs. Strikes out way too much and isn't good defensively. I would rather have Upton. Signing Davis to that deal would end up making Brian Roberts last deal look like a bargain. Boras has made mistakes like this before and his clients have ended up getting screwed. The team just wants to hear team x offered this much can you beat it. Boras wants a team to negotiate against itself. Anything more than a 4 year deal for Davis is a huge mistake.
  12. When did the bill of rights say you could show anything you want in a movie. Stuff they showed today would no way been approved to be in a movie in a regular theater 50 years ago. And yes I want the second amendment repealed. It was a bad decision to be included in the first place. Just because they made a mistake 200 years ago doesn't mean we have to be stuck with it today.
  13. Actually I do think there is too much violence in movies. People are so worried about a little nudity but then you see even pg movies are loaded with violence. And a movie like Drive shouldn't be allowed in theaters.
  14. My feeling is caught with a gun mandatory 20 year jail term. I think that would solve the problems we have been having.
  15. White House says today is not the day to talk about gun control. If not today when is the time? Next week when another mass shooting occurs? They should have had the discussion long ago. These mass shooting will continue to occur until people start voting politicians out of office who support big gun companies and let them to continue to put their killing machines on the street. Also banning first person shooters would be another good idea.
