YES, that insanely STUPID contract that the Angels gave him could have WRECKED this franchise. LA wasn't even smart enough to include any clauses about his substance abuse. I don't wish failure on any human being, but I won't cry if this contract becomes a BIG HONKING PILE OF DUNG.

YES, I want the Orioles to SPEND money. YES, Josh Hamilton would have made a HUGE difference in the Orioles lineup. YES, the Orioles make tons of money and are ABLE to spend so much more then they are now. YES, the Orioles made money in 1996 and 1997 when the had one of the highest payrolls in baseball.
NO, they won't jump their payroll to be a consistently competitive team.

A $4.5 million Base with incentives for games started that could raise it to $6.5 Million and what ever the final salary for 2013 would be the salary for 2014. (Brings a whole new meaning to playing for next years contract)

With the obscene amounts of money he makes off MASN, it makes no sense to me. If I'm Dan Duquette, I'm totally frustrated by this situation
