EB stands by his scoop ....
He makes a great point. Why are folks going to the Orioles for a comment? As some posters have pointed out, nothing but spin is going to come from them. The people that need to be questioned are the potential suitors.

If true, maybe he will unload the team for $1B after paying $173M for it, but I always thought his sons would get it and they are even worse than the old man.
Another Bob/Jimmy Irsay bad dream.
But people that know him like him. I know
a guy who supervised the concessions at the park plus the catering in the warehouse and he was in charge of Petey's sky box ensuring he got everything he wanted.
He said Petey always tipped him $100. I said how much does all that food cost for a typical game and
