It looks like they might be leaning towards players who had memorable OPACY moments, like Sutcliffe and Andino.  Hoiles with the ultimate grand slam.  I think Reboulet hit a big postseason HR against Randy Johnson.  Not sure about Gibbons.  But then Delmon Young wasn't listed, and he had one of the biggest moments of anyone, maybe second only to 2,131.

 

Maybe they're keeping Jones secret, and once everyone else is introduced, he'll run out and hit them all with pies.

Jay Gibbons? Edit oh you mentioned him I missed that.

I assume the attendees are just the few people who said yes and not a curated list.


When left to their own devices the marketing team is really good, so any mismanagement here probably stems from something done by representatives of ownership.

Adam Just put out an interesting tweet...

Huuuuge news coming soon for Bmore!!

 

 

I won't speculate on what it could be but I'm interested.

I doubt the news will be released during the playoffs. MLB really frowns on that.

 

I am very curious for sure.

Looks like the Baltimore Banner is starting to do sports coverage, and Adam's going to have a weekly podcast with Jerry Coleman.

Well, even Adam Jones isn’t worth listening to Jerry Coleman. Pass.

I have a dream of Jones eventually being Jim Palmer's replacement, so any broadcasting experience he can get in the meantime is good, I guess.  Not a Coleman fan, either, though.

Hiring Jerry Coleman is not a good way to start.

Stoner should be all over this. Os are on the come up. Feel there is opportunity in the podcast world in regards to the Os. NFL and Ravens are oversaturated. Find an interesting former Oriole and a good host and it will work. Im trying to think who may work. JJ Hardy?? Doesnt even have to be a huge name. Someone who has personality. Can tell a good story.

Agreed. AJ has been set up for certain failure.

I'm gonna say false to this. If Coleman's on air personality isn't bad enough, and it far exceeds bad enough, there's the off the air Coleman who thinks he's a God. I have a family member who worked with him. He is an unbearable co-worker.

I remember when Coleman used to do the sports on KML years ago, they would bring up how he always seemed to have a different young female intern who had to date him in order to keep her job, and I'm not sure they were kidding.

I’ve heard he fancies himself like a Rush Limbaugh or Howard Stern. He has a mic, so in his world, he’s an A List celeb. Heard many stories where he would suggest for fans at bars to buy him drinks and stuff like that. Just a very strange person.

My interactions with him in person, I saw a decent guy. 
But he's over-the-top cynical, and what he's comfortable talking about is any 'controversy' vs. actual game play.

I can personally vouch for this part. Guy is uber-douchey.
