Peter Angelo’s failing health prompts MLB to demand ownership answers from Orioles

Major League Baseball has reached out to the Baltimore Orioles ownership requesting a formal answer on who the current leadership consists of by June, according to multiple sources and first reported by The Baltimore Sun.

Though long-time owner Peter Angelo’s two sons Louis and John have become more involved in team activities while their father continues to deal with health issues, Major League Baseball and all club owners must pass a formal approval of whoever the Orioles deem to be the new person in control.

The next club owners meeting takes place in June, which is when the league would like an answer, according to multiple unnamed sources. This gives Baltimore around three months to come up with an response to the MLB.

*Sends in application to become owner of the Orioles*

Schmuck: Orioles’ executive search, MASN hearing make November a critical month for franchise

Baseball’s free-agent market opened for business this weekend and the Orioles still appear to be a few weeks away from naming a new baseball operations chief, but don’t be alarmed.

This was never going to be a big free-agent offseason for the Orioles, so the deliberate search for Dan Duquette’s replacement — and eventually a new manager — isn’t as time sensitive as it might be under different circumstances.

An industry source told The Baltimore Sun that John and Louis Angelos are immersed in the process and have talked to a number of potential candidates to run their baseball operations department.

A question, for anyone here who may be an expert in the business end of baseball- are the issues being presented here as critical as the article makes them seem?
