Had a good laugh on Saturday when the Fox crew said "Chris Davis came over in the Koji Uehara trade, one of the only moves Andy MacPhail made that's still visible on this Orioles roster."
Oh, yeah. One of the few. Just Adam Jones, Chris Tillman, Chris Davis, Tommy Hunter, J.J. Hardy, Troy Patton, Markakis (extension), Machado (draft and sign), Matusz (draft and sign), and Wieters (sign). That's all. Not many visible pieces of the team there.

Jordan was hampered by the budget he was given by Angelos. IMO it was the biggest reason he fled town when his contract was up.
Jordan is not responsible for the HORRENDOUS development system we had; ANGELOS was by insisting his lackeys and toadies occupied decision making positions. Jordan brought in talent and the farm system ruined it.
