Life After Andy MacPhail: Experienced Hands Outside of the Organization - Camden Depot
"I think Hart and Krivsky are the two likely ones from this group to have consideration to replace MacPhail. The one selected would be based on whoever had more power: Buck or MacPhail."

Will the Orioles lose 100 games this season? -
"They have lost eight of their last 10 and 28 of their last 37. They haven’t won a series in more than a month (June 24-26). And, that begs the question that was floating around the press box Monday night after the Orioles threw a game away to the Chicago White Sox: Will these Orioles do it? Will they lose 100 games?"

Would you like to see Reynolds play first base permanently? -
Reynolds: "I don't know if I like [first] better, but it's good to just do whatever I can to help the team win. If they want me to play first, I'll be at first. If they want me at third, I'll be there, and if they want me to be in the outfield, I'll go to the outfield. Maybe not catcher. I don't like catcher so much."

Websites, such as the very one you are reading, provide for an excellent forum from which to learn. As such, it seems that it would be appropriate to measure the growth of sabermetrics using the internet, specifically using tools like Google Trends."
