Orioles hope SS Iglesias provides defense, leadership

BALTIMORE (AP) — When it came time to find a new shortstop for the rebuilding Baltimore Orioles, general manager Mike Elias looked no further than José Iglesias.

Iglesias and Baltimore finalized a $3 million, one-year contract on Tuesday. a deal that includes a $2.5 million salary this year and a $3.5 million club option for 2021 with a $500,000 buyout.

After trading shortstop Jonathan Villar in December, Elias decided that the 30-year-old Iglesias would be an ideal replacement.

“Just his overall talent, the combination of his offensive capability and the glove he’s famous for,” Elias said. “His long track record put him in a tier above anyone else that was available on the free agent market.”

Well, someone must claim a leadership role on that team, I suppose…..

Why did the Orioles, who lost 108 games last year, just waive their most valuable position player?

When you lose 108 games like the 2019 Baltimore Orioles just did, plenty of turnover is expected as the team continues its rebuild.

What is not expected is that turnover reaching a player who was the team’s most valuable position player during the season, according to multiple statistical measures. That would be a truly odd roster move, and also exactly what the Orioles did.

Orioles waive Jonathan Villar

Eyebrows were raised Wednesday when the Orioles reportedly put starting second-baseman Jonathan Villar on waivers after making an effort to trade him. The roster move comes ahead of MLB’s deadline for tending contracts to arbitration-eligible players.

The Orioles are a truly mismanaged team, aren’t they?

Orioles hire Eve Rosenbaum as director of baseball development

The Baltimore Orioles have created a new position to ensure all of their important departments are on the same page. The team announced it hired Eve Rosenbaum on Monday as its newly created director of baseball development.

Rosenbaum will be responsible for “coordination between the scouting, player development, and analytics departments,” according to the Orioles.

The move reunites Rosenbaum with Orioles general manager Mike Elias. The two worked together as part of the Houston Astros before Elias left to run the Orioles following the 2018 season.

Bill for Nationals-Orioles TV dispute tops $99 million

NEW YORK (AP) — The bill is coming due for what the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network should pay the Washington Nationals for television rights for 2012-16: more than $99 million.

A proposed judgment was submitted Friday in New York Supreme Court. The court in August upheld an April 15 decision by a Major League Baseball arbitration panel that set the Nationals’ TV rights for that period at nearly $297 million.

The Baltimore Orioles and Nationals jointly own MASN and have been fighting in court for years. MASN was established in 2005 after the Montreal Expos relocated to Washington and became the Nationals, moving into what had been Baltimore’s exclusive broadcast territory since 1972. The Orioles have a controlling interest in the network.

So, does this end things, or will there be more rounds of disputes to come?

Judge says MASN should pay Nats based on MLB panel decision

NEW YORK (AP) — A judge has ordered lawyers for the Nationals and Baltimore Orioles to submit a proposed judgment of what the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network should pay Washington for television rights from 2012-16 based on the decision issued in April by an arbitration panel of three baseball executives.

New York Supreme Court Justice Joel M. Cohen wrote in a decision issued Thursday that MASN should pay the Nationals the $296.8 million recommended by the panel, minus rights fees MASN already has paid for that five-year period. Cohen said the clerk of the court should calculate interest on the net amount from April 15 through the date the remaining money is paid.

Cohen heard renewed arguments Tuesday and denied a motion by the Nationals to reargue the case that led to his Aug. 22 decision to confirm the arbitration award. He said the sides should jointly submit a proposed judgment by Nov. 21 and also said the Orioles are not precluded from seeking recalculations of MASN profit distributions.

The latest update in a long-running dispute.

Orioles announce family-friendly time changes to their regular season schedule

The Orioles announced significant changes to their regular-season schedule Thursday, making it more family-friendly during non-summer months.

According to Joe Trezza, the Orioles will start at 6:35 p.m. ET for games that occur before Memorial Day and after Labor Day. Home games during the summer will retain their 7:05 p.m. ET start time.

Major League Baseball saw a record 3:05:35 average run time for games in 2019 despite changes made before 2018 to cut mound visits without pitching changes.

Mind you, with how the team has been lately, will a half-hour change really make that much of a difference in attracting fans?

Orioles players send handwritten thank you notes to fans after disappointing 108-loss season

It’s safe to say that the 2019 season wasn’t exactly what the Baltimore Orioles had in mind. They compiled a 54-108 record, which only trailed the Detroit Tigers for the MLB’s worst record. With that in mind, Orioles director of public relations Kristen Hudak had an idea of how the team could still show the fanbase that they appreciated their support all season.

Hudak had several of the team’s players write messages to season ticket holders, but only mentioned that the players should write a brief “thank you.” Many players, though, wrote a little bit more than “thank you.”

For instance, pitcher Tanner Scott wrote this message to a season ticket holder named Bill, admitting that the team has work to do moving forward: “We thank you for the support this year. This season has been a growing year for all of us and we are going to continue to work hard to achieve success for us as a team and for you as the fans who support us. #Birdland. Thank you, Tanner Scott.”

Prior to handing out the cards to write the messages on, Hudak did speak with veteran first baseman Chris Davis about the idea. Davis was in full support of the gesture and the team’s fan services department selected random season ticket holders that would receive the thank you notes.

All eight of them thank the Orioles for their kind thoughts.

Even Gary Thorne is getting frustrated with the Orioles

With a loss to the Tigers on Saturday, the Orioles lost their 100th game of the season. It’s their second consecutive season with triple-digit losses, and their third straight losing season. The Orioles are frustrating to watch if you’re a fan, but even broadcaster Gary Thorne sounds fed up with the lack of quality baseball.

In the first inning of Tuesday night’s game against the Blue Jays, Lourdes Gurriel Jr. hit a foul pop-up. Catcher Chance Sisco and third baseman Rio Ruiz converged on the ball. Ruiz did not call off Cisco. As a result, Cisco continued to pursue the pop-up but both players tried not to collide into each other and the ball dropped onto the ground, giving Gurriel new life.

Following the play, a frustrated Thorne said, “And there again, that can’t happen. 12 games left in the year and you still haven’t decided that a third baseman calls off the catcher? For the love of gracious, come on!”

Meanwhile, Jon Miller has to be thinking that alienating Peter Angelos has to have been one of the best decisions of his broadcasting career….

Video: Two runs score on passed ball because Dylan Bundy doesn’t cover home plate

The Dodgers defeated the Orioles 4-2 on Thursday evening in Baltimore, taking two of three in the series from one of baseball’s worst teams. The Dodgers’ third and fourth runs were a gift from Orioles starter Dylan Bundy, as he failed to cover home plate following a passed ball with the bases loaded in the sixth inning.

A.J. Pollock led off the frame with a double and promptly scored on a Cody Bellinger single. Bundy then walked Corey Seager. After getting two outs, the bases became loaded on a fielding error by third baseman Rio Ruiz, bringing up Russell Martin. Martin worked a full count when Bundy fired a high fastball. Martin foul tipped it into catcher Pedro Severino‘s glove, but Severino couldn’t hang on. The loose ball bounced towards the back wall as Severino gave chase. Bellinger scored and, because Bundy barely got off the pitcher’s mound, Seager scored as well, putting the Dodgers up 4-2.

Feels like the epitome of the Orioles’ year, doesn’t it?

Second Dugout Dust-Up For Orioles: Is Frustration Setting In?

It is easy to understand why frustration might be setting in with the Baltimore Orioles. They’re about to have a second straight 100-loss season — although they’ll do better this year than last — and the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel seems to be quite a ways away.

But what’s a bit troubling is the Orioles had another incident Wednesday where a player and a coach or manager got into a brief disagreement — and worse, it was caught on TV. Pitcher Richard Bleier clearly was unhappy when coming off the mound after allowing three runs in the fifth inning of an 8-4 loss in Washington Wednesday night and made a few comments to coach Jose Flores, who handles defensive positioning.

“I think I just let frustration kind of boil over, some stuff about some balls that I thought maybe … defensive positioning, I guess,” Bleier said to The Baltimore Sun. “I probably could have done better for myself to keep my mouth shut, and unfortunately, I may have said something. You guys saw the rest.”

Bleier said something, Flores clearly was upset and the two needed to be separated a few times. Chris Davis wound up having a similar disagreement with manager Brandon Hyde earlier this month when the first baseman had to be stopped from chasing the skipper down the steps of the dugout in Baltimore and restrained. That also was caught on TV.

Truth be told, if frustration isn’t setting in by now, they’re far better men than me.

Orioles clean house, fire 11 members of scouting and front office departments

Baltimore Orioles executive vice president and general manager Mike Elias is dedicated to altering the direction of the organization and that was reciprocated Friday with the firing of 11 members of the scouting and front office departments. 

“We’re in a period of change right now with the industry and we’re in a period of change right now with the Orioles,” Elias said. “Sometimes to make changes you’ve got to make changes.”

Among those relieved were baseball operations director Tripp Norton, scouts Dean Albany, Jim Howard, John Gillette, Nathan Showalter, and Buck Showalter.

Elias acknowledged the uphill battle ahead of filling numerous voids but insists it’s just a part of the job

And, if you believe those claims, Mike Elias would like to interest you in buying a bridge…..

Orioles break MLB record for most home runs allowed in a single season

Just one day after tying the MLB record for most home runs allowed in a season, the Orioles have broken the tie with the 2016 Cincinnati Reds for the most homers allowed by a team in a single season.

On Thursday against the Tampa Bay Rays, the Orioles gave up their 259th and 260th home run of 2019. Right fielder Austin Meadows took one long off Orioles starter Asher Wojciechowski in the third inning during the four-game series opener. In the fifth inning, shortstop Willy Adames hit a solo homer, also off Wojciechowski.

So, what other disasters could hit the Orioles, at the rate things are going for them?

Judge upholds arbitration ruling that Orioles owed Nationals $296.8 million in MASN TV rights dispute

The Orioles lost the latest round in the long-running MASN television rights dispute Thursday when a New York judge upheld a second arbitration ruling ordering the network to pay the Washington Nationals $296.8 million in additional rights fees for the 2012 to 2016 seasons.

The Associated Press reported that judge Joel M. Cohen refused an Orioles request to reject the award based on a similar conflict-of-interest basis that led to the original award being overturned.

The new arbitration award is almost identical to the one that was thrown out and sent back to a new Major League Baseball arbitration panel, but the gross number is believed to include the reported $197.5 million the network already has paid the Nats for the five seasons covered. That would leave about $100 million still owed to the Nats if the award survives another appeal, and the amount the Nats actually would receive likely would be reduced once MASN restates its profits from that period to reflect the higher rights fee.

The ruling did not come as a surprise. The Baltimore Sun reported in May that the arbitration had made its decision in favor of the Nationals, but the ruling had been sealed until Thursday. In that article, The Sun, citing people familiar with the case, reported that the Nats would net from $60 million to $70 million when all adjustments were made.

I’ll leave this for the lawyers and experts on broadcasting here to argue for the most part, but I do wonder what long-term consequences will come from this ruling.

LEADING OFF: Mad Max and Gerrit Cole return, Fenway freebie

WELCOME BACK, MAD MAX

Nationals ace Max Scherzer comes off the injured list to start at last-place Pittsburgh. The three-time Cy Young Award winner is 9-5 with a 2.41 ERA in 20 starts but has pitched only once over the past six weeks because of a strained muscle in his back. His 12.7 strikeouts per nine innings lead the NL. Washington holds the league’s top wild-card spot.

FENWAY FREEBIE

The Boston Red Sox are offering free admission to fans under the age of 18 for the 1:05 p.m. EDT conclusion of a game against Kansas City that was suspended on Aug. 7 because of rain. An admission fee of $5 for adults will be donated to the Jimmy Fund. Play will resume in the top of the 10th inning with the score tied 4-all and Josh Taylor working with a 2-1 count on Royals catcher Meibrys Viloria.

What, no Blue Max?

Nashville Orioles? Baltimore needs a local buyer to step up to the plate

If the family were to sell, that means another complication: Would they sell to local investors, or to out-of-town owners who might move the team? The lease on Oriole Park, which helps tie the team to Baltimore, ends in 2021.

One rumor has the family retaining ownership but the club moving to Nashville, where John Angelos and his wife have one of their homes. That rumor takes on legitimacy mainly because of sinking attendance at Oriole Park.

But knowledgeable sources say the family would much rather sell – and keep the club in Baltimore, if a local buyer can be found.

Among potential Baltimore buyers whose names have surfaced: David Smith, executive chairman of Sinclair Broadcast Group; Raymond “Chip” Mason, founder and former chairman and CEO of the Legg Mason investment group; Jim Davis, founder of the Allegis Group staffing company, whose cousin is Ravens owner Steve Biscotti.

The Orioles pulled off an astronomical upset over the Astros

The Houston Astros are a very good baseball team. The Baltimore Orioles are ... not a very good baseball team.

Still, over the course of a 162-game season, every blind squirrel finds an acorn. And even the Orioles (39-78) can beat the Astros (77-41). Sunday’s comeback win by the Orioles marked one of the biggest upsets in MLB history

According to ESPN, the Orioles were listed as +420 underdogs by some sportsbooks. Some of it might have had to do with Houston’s 23-3 rout on Saturday and the fact that ace Justin Verlander was starting for the Astros.

The next sound you hear is that of a group of bookies trying to welsh on their debts.

Orioles Outfielder Bonked On The Head By Badly Misjudged Pop Fly

If you were looking for one single moment to represent the bottomless misery of the last, oh, two years of Orioles baseball, you could do a lot worse than D.J. Stewart’s ill-fated play on a fourth-inning fly ball in Tuesday’s game against the Yankees in Baltimore. Stewart, chugging in on the play, appeared to badly misjudge the ball’s trajectory, or brutally mistime his sliding attempt, or simply slip and fall—instead of making a heroic highlight catch, Stewart wiped out pretty badly and then had a baseball ricochet off the side of his head.

At this point, the Orioles seem to exist largely as a challenge to any potential satirists of baseball as conditions are now.

Brady Anderson: Matusz is ‘a different human’

HALF-MAN, HALF-BEAST…BUT ALL ORIOLE!

Half

Orioles Hall of Famer Brady Anderson, making his first appearance since being appointed special assistant to executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette, said today at FanFest that the difference between Brian Matusz a year ago at this time and Brian Matusz today is the difference between night and day.

“He’s like a different human as far as his mentality and his dedication and the raw numbers, what type of athlete he is, he’s not the same,’’ Anderson said of the left-hander.

...Also, if you’re not strong mechanically, you’re going to break down. Think about what they do for a living. Think about what pro athletes do for a living. You can’t do average things and expect to be extraordinary.”
“You’re asking a guy who’s 6-2, 190 pounds who throws the ball 190 miles per hour. You’re talking about very, very elite people and you train like an elite athlete.”

[Wei-Yin] Chen gives Orioles left-handed starter

I didn’t see an NMA animation for this, unfortunately :-(

In the latest move of the ongoing effort to stabilize their starting rotation, the Orioles officially signed left-hander Wei-Yin Chen out of Taiwan on Tuesday, agreeing to a three-year contract that includes a club option for 2015…

“It’s a unique situation based upon his age, the fact that he’s left-handed, our need and the acquisition cost was really [just] the cost of the contract,” Duquette said of Chen, who was not subject to a posting fee because he was released by the Chunichi Dragons…

Chen spent the past four years with the Dragons in Japan’s Central League, going 38-30 with a 2.48 ERA in 117 games (88 starts). The lefty posted a 2.68 ERA in 25 appearances last season and will be the first Taiwanese-born player in Orioles history, as Duquette, who also signed Japanese pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada earlier this offseason, continues to ramp up the organization’s international efforts.

Chen works off a fastball that routinely clocks in between 92-94 mph, and he is lauded for his exceptional command and use of a “slurve-like” breaking ball for his out pitch. His signing, coupled with Wada and the club’s trade for Dana Eveland, gives the O’s depth at the starting pitching position, fostering competition among their young hurlers and ensuring that setup man Jim Johnson will remain in the bullpen… While Wada could also be moved to the bullpen depending on what happens in camp, Chen figures to be solely used as a starter.

Former Oriole Luke Scott signs one-year deal with Tampa Bay

Luke Scott: Rebirtherr.

Luke Scott, the outspoken, energetic slugger who spent four seasons in Baltimore and was named the 2010 Most Valuable Oriole, has agreed to a one-year deal with the division-rival Tampa Bay Rays that includes a 2013 option, according to an industry source.

Exact terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

Scott, 33, was in his final year of arbitration after making $6.4 million in an injury-marred 2011 that ended in July, when he decided to have season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder. In December, the Orioles decided not to tender him a contract—he would have made at least $6 million and likely more—and allowed him to become a free agent.

There was talk that the club wanted him back on a lesser deal, but the Orioles never made a push this offseason to re-sign him.

Angelos is now on his eighth different GM since buying the Orioles 18 years ago. MacPhail lasted the longest, at four and a half years. Before him, Angelos ran off baseball icon Roland Hemond, who left after the 1995 season; Hall of Famer Pat Gillick, who fled after 1998 despite making the AL Championship Series twice in three years; Frank Wren, who lasted only one season and has found success as GM of the Braves; Syd Thrift, a recycling experiment similar to Duquette that lasted three years; and Jim Beattie and Mike Flanagan, who served as a two-headed GM for three years before Flanagan did a year and a half on his own.

Angelos has done a poor job of creating a unified baseball operation pulling in the same direction toward a shared goal, instead fostering an atmosphere where departments seem to function as autonomous units. Duquette, of course, pledges to change that. Empty promises have remained one of the few constants with the Orioles during the last 14 years.
