Actually a pretty decent article. There are still lot of things to root for as an O's fan besides the W/L column and standings. I am most interested to see how the new management team works on things and how much the FO lets them do their job. THAT has me excited....but no I am not holding my breath....lol

I haven't been to the Yard in a couple of seasons, because the team was boring, stagnant and looked to stay that way for as long as the decision makers were all in place. Now there's something to root for. With the new guys in the owners seat(s) and their (presumably) home run of a GM selection, there's reason to allow myself to think the O's could return to being a well-run organization. 


Good news! I saw a dog today.

Nothing wrong with that for a team going through an on-field and front office reboot of sorts. No one is accepting losing here, but it’s OK for fans to understand the process the team is going through and adjust expectations for the coming season. Heck, it could be fun to follow a team trying to build from close to scratch, a club that will now approach trying to win very differently under Mike Elias and his staff.

 

I think it's funny how everyone keeps acting like "they aren't accepting losing" when all they talk about is accepting losing.

 

There are zero things in that article that sell a single ticket.

 

Nobody is showing up to watch Hess, Ramirez or Rogers.

Nobody is showing up to see if Mullins is settling into the leadoff spot.

Nobody is buying tickets to watch Trey Mancini

Nobody is motivated to see if Givens can save his 30th game in a 97 loss season.

Nobody is buying ticket to OPaCY because of any minor league affiliate.

 

There's certainly a community of people that sit behind their keyboards and talk about things like "excitement of FO process".

 

Who cares how you analyze a season sitting at home.

 

Last year was a record low attendance at OPaCY.  Anyone taking the over this year?

I went to a few games early in the season when there was still hope of competing. Then stopped for about four months until  Mullins was called up and went to see a few more.

A thousand additional tickets per game this year is meaningless compared with 15,000 additional tickets per game in four years.

In the context of the purpose of an Oriole Baseball Message Board, I'd ask you to discuss that comment, but I'll guess you won't.

 

Your comment goes to exactly what Chris suggests I'm wrong about.  

 

Your comment is the proof, the evidence, of my point.

This guy suggests expanding the "Orioles Passport" program to reward fans with discounted tickets, at both OPACY and affiliates home parks, instead of just giving out a gift.

It'll be the 45 year anniversary of Ten Cent Beer Night too. I sense the opportunity for a two'fer promotion.

A classic example of an idea which worked too well.

We are in the tank through 2020, no other way to look at it except in terms of farm development, securing premium draft picks and dealing off assets for the future. Any other expectations are foolish and unrealistic.
