View Full Version : What is Angelos up to?

Does he have a plan that he's been plotting for a long time? If he's planning to sell to someone more knowledgeable, more sensible, and who will keep the team in Baltimore... well, this should get interesting.

I found this part most interesting:
The most controversial possibility is one of the most obvious. In the first year after Cal Ripken retires, do the Orioles deliberately want to field an unappealing team so that their attendance will collapse? Then, if the "team-for-the-Washington-area" movement gains strength, the Orioles can say, "We're struggling here already. Do you want to kill us?"
Anybody who thinks such a ploy is far-fetched doesn't know Peter Angelos. Nothing is more important to him than keeping a team out of "his market" -- which he considers to be a 200-mile circle around Baltimore.
