Senators and Sabermetrics has more Angelos hatred for you. I don't agree with all of it (I don't miss Jason Johnson or Pat Hentgen), but this is interesting: "The Orioles spend less than 50% of revenue on player payroll, the lowest in the majors." I did not know that.
My experience with Baltimoreans is that they're serious about baseball and love their team. They certainly deserve better than this.
