Well folks, pitchers and catchers report shortly, so Spring Training will be underway before we know it.


How is everyone feeling about the 2018 Season?


I know I am not feeling well with the AL East (Toughest division in MLB) so stacked right now.

The Orioles are going to struggle this year, especially as of now with only 2 inked up starting pitchers, one of which is going to arbitration for his contract, so that's always fun.

Orioles' FO and owner are so ******* stupid it physically hurts me

I know we got burned on the Ubaldo contract but guess what? It happens and you move on. This is the AL East you're gonna overpay for pitching no matter what but Angelos is too ******* dumb to realize that

Cobb, Lynn, Darvish, etc are all up for grabs but eh **** it let's put Mike Wright and Alec Asher out there and hope for the best

**** Angelos, **** DD and **** our entire FO

Don't even get me started on the Manny fiasco that is gonna turn our horribly for us

Yea I am shocked with how many quality players are floating around out there in FA right now. I don't get what's going on, are people standing up for the silly amount of money these guys want, finally?

Arrieta is still out there too, would love to see him back but never gonna happen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I hope they trade Manny now, not really keen on him sticking around, would rather see Schoop locked down.

Giants got more consistent in their line-up. Hopefully not too old

Still some good players out there unsigned.

FA players asking for more time/money than they're worth

JD Martinez wants like 7 years 250mil lolwut you're insane

Arrieta has been trending down lately with velocity since 2016 but yeah I'd take him in a heartbeat

Manny should have already had an extension signed. We're not gonna get **** for him and he's gonna walk out for nothing. If that happens I'm probably going to stop watching Orioles baseball until either DD and the FO are fired or Angelos sells the team/dies (I don't care which happens)

We need to build around Schoop/Mancini/Sisco/Hays and try to nab some prospects or trade for players. Manny is good as gone, Jones is a FA after this year and I dunno if any team wants an aging CF (hope we resign him so he can finish his career in Baltimore and have a statue built out in CF for him), Trumbo needs to produce and Davis needs to learn how to bunt against the shift IDGAF if he's being paid $161 million to hit dingers he isn't doing that very well so might as well make him a double threat at the plate against the shift

**** typing all this out makes me mad with how garbage we've handled stuff since 2014

He's going to the Yanks/Cubs my friend unless you want to surround him with mediocrity after paying him the GDP of a small African nation

Oh man, what a fun season this is starting off to be.

Orioles finally get starting pitching to work out but can't score runs and lose games by giving away runs via errors or the bullpen imploding.


Tilman has to get Mike Wright'd ASAP!


Phillies are looking strong though, maybe another Philly team year!?!!

Mike Wright only has a job because of Brady "typical roid douchebag" Anderson being his friend and having pull somehow in the clubhouse

This is gonna be a long season and after it's over I'm pretty sure Buck, Manny and Jones will be gone then we'll enter the Dark Ages again like the 2000's were

Cobb said he didn't feel ready and he was rushed through a modified ST

I'd give him a couple more starts before we start panicking

But I don't have hope that we can be a competitive team though. Davis still can't hit, Beckham sucks at 3B and the plate, Sisco doesn't seem like he's fully ready to be an MLB catcher, Brach is very hit or miss especially for a closer role, Rasmus is more like Assmus, and Santander is coming back down to earth now.

We need to clean house at the trade deadline. We're not gonna get anything for Manny either unless a really competitive team's 3B goes down and they're desperate. Even then we'll still get the raw end of the deal. Britton will be traded for nothing. Pretty sure Jones said he's out after this season if we decide to tank and rebuild. Buck probably won't stick around either.

We're about to enter the Dark Ages again like the early-mid 2000's

**** Angelos and **** Duquette and **** the FO. They collectively ruined this team.

^ yea man, they look like they are carrying over from last year, looking good thus far.

Kind of glad the Orioles got rained out today, they need a damn break!


Glad the Rangers could make it as competitive series in Houston too!

I know, he looked good too, I really don't like the Espn production, something is just off to me too.

But Bartolo, a morbidly obese 43 year old, still killing it, with what looks like 30% effort.

I think Bartolo just doesn't care anymore and has played so long he's just like "meh I'll go out and throw if I do good then awesome.....if I suck oh well I'll just go back to the hotel and get room service "

ESPN coverage sucks ***. They were doing coverage of other sports and interviews done before the game WHILE THE GAME IS BEING BROADCAST. Like WTF stop this **** I just want to watch the game stop doing split screen and talking over the game audio.

I guess I am just used to MASN stuff, like I can clearly see the ball but with ESPN it's often washed out looking and further away from the batter box.
