Good morning fans emoticon

Here is the news report about the Cubs pitcher the Os are trying to sign.

I'd like to know what you all think...

I have heard talk that the Os are considering trading Brian Roberts to the Cubs in order to sign this guy. I haven't had time to research this on the web, but I HOPE this is not true... emoticon

I honestly think that he got a contract extension last year, because at one point the O's were talking about trading him. I think he has another 2-3 years left. I could be, and probably am wrong.

I sure wished I could get a contract like Markakas got!
I'm wondering what's gunna happen with Manny Ramirez. I would love to see a name like his come to Baltimore, but I hate to say, I think the Mets are gunna get him.

Oh,
it is sweet to have you all on the threads! Except for Nancy (MACMOM) and me, no one had been doing anything with this Team. emoticon

Now, to the message...
1.) I see NO problem with being both a Ravens fan AND a Redskins fan. I'm not much for football, but I love getting behind a local winning team! (Go Ravens!)

2.) IRod is a great player, but I think he's past his prime. So, I have mixed feelings about his coming to our team.

3.) I, too, will miss Kevin Millar if the Os don't sign him. He's a good player and apparently is a great team leader.

4.) 3CATSLEP, I know how it was for you when your wore your Redskins jacket in Milwaukee. My son went to school in New York and would go to Yankee's games with his friends. He said he just kept his head down and never cheered when the Os played better than the Yankees because he was convinced the NY fans would jump him if he did. He said they were rough! emoticon

There, I think I have caught up with you all. I enjoyed that!

That would be great. I'm bummed that the are taking there time about maybe signing Kevin Millar. But they have gotten some pitchers so I sure hope that will help.

I've been hearing rumor that the O's may be in talks with Ivan Rodriguez to come be their catcher. Wouldn't that be sweet?

Hey - did someone say crab cakes? I thought I could smell them way up here in Michigan!!! OK - so I have to admit - I do keep an eye on the Nationals and do wear my Redskins starter jacket. You should have seen the Green Bay fans (which I almost got killed) while I was living in Milwaukee, WI!

I've been wanting to go to a Nationals game. I've been to plenty of Oriole games. But there just isn't anything like it, being there in the atmosphere of it all. Mmmm, at Oriole Park, I can almost smell the bbq over at Boog Powells bbq stand. And the crabcakes they serve there at the stadium....anyway, enough about the food.
I'm getting excited about the Delmarva Shorebird games too.

Isn't it interesting how excited and hopeful we get at the beginning of every season?! emoticon I think it's a good thing that hope never dies...

I hope these 'new' pitchers are good, too. Goodness knows we need some "knock-'em-down, strike-'em-out" players on the mound. emoticon A superb hitter wouldn't be amiss either...

I think it's great that you go to the games of both teams. I guess I could say that I'm in-between both stadiums myself--it just takes a while for me to get to either of them. emoticon I think I'll make a point of attending a Nationals game this year. I have a cousin whom I know would like to go and maybe he and I could go together.

Thanks for the idea!

I hope those guys will help they need pitching so bad. Cant wait for opening day. I also hope to get to more games this year. We also go to the Nationals. We are lucky enough to be right in the middle. Have a friend who works for them helps too.

Hi Tim!
I've been too busy the last 2 days to check the O's emoticon website, but I plan to do that later today. I'm glad we're so close to
Spring emoticon Training and that news about the team is becoming more plentiful.

BTW, I see that you are accomplishing steady and increasing weight loss. emoticon

What does everyone think about the O's signing Uehara and Hendrickson to their pitching staff?
