The Orioles offered 7 years, 140 million. The Yankees offered 8 years 160 million. Yeah, the Orioles suck every year but signing a talent like that could have only been a step in the right direction. The Orioles needed a first baseman. What other marquee 1B free agents were out there to sign?? The rest of the starting outfield and infield are already set so that answers your question as to why they didn't go after anyone else. The Orioles will have no problems scoring runs this year. Like every year, it comes down to the starting pitching, not the offense. They scored 10 runs yesterday, right?

As far as out of town Red Sox and Yankee fans coming to the games...let me just put it out there that a large majority of those so-called fans don't travel to Orioles home games from their respective cities. Most of them are little faggy bandwagon jumpers that live locally around the area. If I see another Yankee douchebag fan with gold chains and cock-eyed ball cap at an Orioles game, I'll punch him in face and dedicate it to you. Kiss

And yes, the Yankees have no heart. They're just a team that plugs holes every year with big name free agents and trades at the expense of their farm system. Why do you think they're annually MLB's oldest team?



I totally support punching the gold chain wearing guido Yankee fan.

I just don't think it's fair to rip Teixeira for not going to a losing franchise with a weak fan base, especially when there's 40 million more on the table, an new stadium, CC Sabathia, etc.   It would take somebody really special to try to be the face of a franchise that has no guarantee that the ownership will do anything different than they've done the past 10 years.

Adam Dunn was available for 1b, and he went to the Nats for 2/20, late in the offseason.  But, even if you think their IF and OF are set, they still could've went after Lowe. Penny, Smoltz, etc.   They didn't do anything, and their projected staff proves it.  Guthrie was their opening day starter.  Yes, they won.  That happens, but do you have any doubt how it will play out over the course of a season?  I know you don't.   I don't blame Teixeira at all for not wanting to go there.

As Mass 04 said, the heart comment doesn't play.  As for age, the Yankees pitching staff is 23, 28, 28, 31, and 37.  1b is 28.   2b is 26.  CF.....etc.   That's hardl old.  Yes, they have some veterans on the team, but every team needs that.  They have a good mix of youth and veteran players.

Anyway, this isn't supposed to be a pissing contest.   As I said earlier in the thread, they have a decent 1-5.  It's just a shame their management won't take the extra steps to help them get a pitching staff.

But the Yankees and the vast majority of their fans?? Fuck 'em.

Seriously....Fuck 'em!

It's just as bad up here with Boston fans.   I've lived in both areas.   For all the good fans like Mass04 and Body88, you have 10 idiot fans.  It's the same in NY.

2009 Albert Pujols = Triple Crown Winner.

It is also important to note that no team in the history of baseball has ever come back from a four game deficit in order to win the world series.

The Browns are my favorite basketball team and will win the Stanley Cup this year.

Peace in the middle east!

I respectfully disagree bro...The Orioles do not have a weak fan base. It's so subjective. Winning puts asses in the seats. The Orioles have had 11 straight losing seasons, dude. ELEVEN. The Orioles fans were as patient as can be and still selling out home games up until about five years ago. Can you blame them for not coming to any more games unless a good opponent is in town? Outside of the Cubs, what other losing organization routinely sells out every home game?

Yeah, I forgot about Adam Dunn. Awesome power hitter even though his batting average is smaller than his playing weight. But he only signed a two year deal with the Nats. What player of his caliber and age sign contracts like that these days? You really think he'll be in Washington by 2012? Unlikely. The reason the O's didn't sign Dunn is because he only wanted a short term deal. Smotlz and Lowe are well past their best years as pitchers.

I'm not delusional, I know the O's will probably have another losing season. I just hope it's within my lifetime that the O's start winning again because they have one of the most storied winning traditions in baseball history.

Oh, and one more thing....fuck the Yankees.

It can be safely said, that NO Yankee or Redsox fans were as prevelant at Orioles home games back in those years(mid 90's) like today. Nothing compared like today.

Gee, I wonder if has anything to do with the fact that the Yankees and Red Sox have won 6 World Series titles since then as a reason for so many of their fans coming to O's games now.  Roll Eyes

Everybody loves a winner....But I stand by my hometown ball club and I always will. Wink

Sox fans suffered though years of bullshit....I can't think of more loyal fans.  Yes, there is in influx of pink hats now, but Boston is about as hardcore of a sports town as their is.  Look at the revenue the Redsox generate compared to the population of their fanbase.

No disagreement from me, bro. That last post was aimed at the local johnny-come-lately's that invade B-more when the Sox come here to play.

Been to Beantown many times and it's like a second home for me. Love that city!

Farm system every year looks pretty good. I go to a lot of Bowie Baysox games here in the local area. Double AA ball.

Weiter, a catcher, in the Orioles farm system has all the tools to be a great player. He'll be called up sometime over the summer to catch games in place of Greg Zaun, who is like 50 years old now.

Are you a Phillies or Pirates fan, Big Mal?

No doubt. Got plenty of memorabilia of Ripken, Brooks Robinson, Boog Powell, Elrod Hendricks(RIP bro!), and Jim Palmer wearing that hat. Fuck, those were the days! Cry

Eddie Murray, Rick Dempsey, etc.

Personally, I think bringing Albert Belle to the team destroyed the whole thing.

if you thought that was bad, Sammy Sosa was the worst trade signing ever in Orioles history. it's almost as bad as the Glen Davis trade from the late 80's.

By the way, the Orioles have opened the season winning their first three series against the Yankees, Rays, and Rangers.

I know it's early but the O's are swinging the bats well!
