Baltimore Orioles Newsbeat
Wednesday, April 29, 2015
Whatever made the day so hushed and surreal, one thing was clear from the start: This is a terrible way to experience baseball.
Maybe it was different actually being there, but watching on MLB.tv was amazing. I wouldn’t want most games to be like this, but as a one-off event it was really neat to actually be able to hear the sounds of baseball.

Unique memorabilia opportunity:
The glove Jeffrey Maier used to catch Derek Jeter’s tying home run against Baltimore in the eighth inning of the 1996 American League Championship Series opener at the original Yankee Stadium will be auctioned. Heritage Auctions said Monday the glove will be put up for bids on Saturday in New York. The company did not identify the current owner, who it said had purchased the glove from Maier.

How long did Jarndyce v. Jarndyce take?
“I’m not going to say a lot about MASN because it is in litigation,” said Manfred, who took over from Bud Selig on Jan. 25. “I will say this much. I think in reasonably short order, there will be a resolution of MASN, either by the litigation being done or some other mechanism.”
When the teams couldn’t agree on what the Nats’ rights fees should be, they appeared before MLB’s Revenue Sharing Definitions Committee: Pittsburgh Pirates president Frank Coonelly, New York Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon and Tampa Bay Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg.
The committee ruled last June 30 that MASN should pay the Nationals about $298 million from 2012-16, an average of just under $60 million—or approximately $20 million a year more than the current rights fee. When MASN didn’t comply with the arbitration award, the Nationals attempted to end the rights agreement.

If this is all true, Ed Rogers (Deputy Chairman of Rogers Communications, which owns the Blue Jays) has an enormous amount to answer for, both in the court of public opinion AND to Major League Baseball.
We’re not sure if this is the way Harvard Business School teaches Forbes 500 companies on how to make upper management changes.
Or the Stanford Graduate School of Business and the London Business School, for that matter.
Yet, here is how Rogers Communications went about the dirty business of replacing Blue Jays president Paul Beeston and trying to hire executive vice-president Kenny Williams from the Chicago White Sox.
You can easily sub Dan Duquette’s name for each mention of Williams.
And you can replace White Sox with the Baltimore Orioles and see how Rogers Communications handled — or rather bungled — the business of replacing the president of the Blue Jays.

... the Orioles have compiled a list of Plan B options in case Duquette departs.
According to an industry source, that list—compiled in the past month—includes four high-profile former general managers: Ned Colletti, Kevin Towers, Omar Minaya and Kevin Malone, who spent a few years in the mid-1990s as an Orioles assistant general manager…

MLB.com’s Mark Sheldon reports that reliever Arthur Rhodes has officially retired from baseball.
Rhodes hasn’t pitched since 2011, but I think he still deserves a proper sendoff. 20 years, 900 games, 1,152 strikeouts, one All-Star berth, and two of the biggest earrings you ever saw.
