Yesterday we reported that the Orioles are for sale according to 106.7 The Fan’s Eric Bickel. The story became all the rage around Baltimore as it turns out that folks are pretty excited about a potential ownership change.
An “Orioles official” tells the Baltimore Sun that there is “absolutely no truth” to the rumors that Angelos is looking to sell. That statement discouraged pretty much the entire fan base.
But not so fast.
Bickel is standing by his source saying that he wouldn’t expect a PR person for the Orioles report anything different. “All I can say is the people with money in town know differently,” Bickel tweets.
“They should be asking the potential buyers,” he adds.
I’m of the belief that everything is for sale. You want my car? I’m not selling it right now, but if you knock on my door with a brief case full on benjamins then we can chat about it.
There Orioles sale probably isn’t that simple, but the comparison likely isn’t far off. Bickel reports that these talks are “private.” If negotiations are going on, fans shouldn’t expect to hear about them like they are in Los Angeles with the Dodgers.
Someone should knock on Steve Bisciotti’s door in Annapolis and ask him what’s up. It sounds like if anyone would know it would be him.
