Finite Resources


Cubs principal owner Tom Ricketts said in the Athletic that he feels that some clubs spent in past seasons because of TV deals kicking in or other lump sum monies becoming available. He indicated that the trend may not continue.  “I think everyone has finite resources.

Some fans feel that the Orioles will increase spending from their record 2017 ~165 million dollar club.

Others feel that recent financial issues such as declining Baltimore attendance and MASN courts setbacks will cause the club to become a true small market spender.

2018 commitments (give or take $129 million)

Michael Williams
Michael Williams has been an Orioles fan since the sixties when his family moved from Reading Pa to York Pa. Also, the Phillies and 1964. His Grandfather got the Chef Boyardee box seats and Mike was hooked. Brooks Robinson calls him not a fan, but a friend. He has been a member of the Orioles Hangout since early in the New Millennium and Managing Editor since 2011. Or so it seems. He lives in Harrisburg PA, down by the river. Not currently in a van.
