The new year brings with it the feeling of a fresh start. The slate is wiped clean. Anything is possible. You can lose those pesky 20 pounds. You will read a new book every week. The juice cleanse you planned to start in 2004 is finally happening.
For the Orioles, those “resolutions” started in earnest back in November with the hiring of Mike Elias as the general manager. Flipping the calendar from 2018 to 2019 shouldn’t change much on that front other than the fact that every new day brings the organization one step closer to completing their rebuild.
Even still, it feels good to rip away the final month of 2018 and throw it in the trash, where it can never hurt us again. Let’s just pretend Chris Davis can still hit a baseball or dream that the Manny Machado trade situation during the All-Star break wasn’t a fiasco.
If you’re late to the resolution train, I have one for you. Podcasts are pretty great. You should listen to more of them. And don’t you know, I happen to host one right here on Eutaw Street Report. It’s called The Warehouse. You can listen to the latest episode right up there, or subscribe to us on Apple Podcasts, Google Play or anywhere else you can find podcasts.
