Washington baseball was the worst nightmare of Peter G. Angelos. Until it happened and he was about to cash in with a television network that would be a spigot of fresh cash when he was piling up bad baseball debt.
Peter Angelos was once called a “windbag” by a rival politician during his City Hall-aspiring days and six years into his reign of terror with the sputtering Orioles, his many words and lack of success with people would lend some credence to that claim.
Intent on buying the Washington Redskins and watching baseball in Cuba with Fidel Castro, Peter G. Angelos was enjoying his new found fame and dalliance in sports after spending a lifetime not caring much about the local teams. The Orioles owner was enjoying destroying the franchise on the field at the turn of the century.
Peter G. Angelos was developing a well-earned reputation as a supreme meddler, an intimidating life force and a bad guy to work for in Major League Baseball. He was making the antics of George Steinbrenner circa 1978 look like a sick, reprised role in Baltimore.
Davey Johnson faxed The Baltimore Sun. Peter Angelos faxed The Washington Post. Both of their letters were published. Life was never the same for Orioles fans at Camden Yards. Read the history of the Angelos era and learn...
The sons of Peter Angelos got a "Dear Orioles" letter from Nestor back in July 2018 encouraging them to step forward and run a legitimate local baseball franchise. Now in the aftermath of the Kevin Brown suspension fiasco at MASN, any sensible fan would realize what we're up against as a community with a born-on-third and thinks he hit a triple Fredo with a penchant for punishment like his old man.
Every Orioles fan remembers Barbara Phelps-Anderson, who hit it big in the 50th Anniversary of the Maryland Lottery celebration when Ryan Mountcastle hit the 50th home run in a memorable Baltimore baseball summer. Nestor caught up with the huge Birds fans down in Sunnyside to relive the magic moment and talk offseason Orioles baseball.
Legendary Philadelphia blues rockers Tommy Conwell and The Young Rumblers return to the Baltimore area for the first time in two decades and Nestor asks why it's still fun to put the band back together almost four decades after the Hammerjacks magic of "I'm Not Your Man."
Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh privately vowed to help Nestor Aparicio with his media credential bullying situation with Chad Steele in any way he could. Weeks later, Aparicio was exterminated. Harbaugh then told him he was unhappy about it but powerless because it wasn't his department in Owings Mills.
As the Maryland Crab Cake continues to tell the good work being done locally, Nestor gets better educated on the modern efforts, fundraising and research that The Leukemia & Lymphona Society continues to do to keep folks like his wife alive after cancer strikes. Let Katie Stegman, her beautiful 4-month old baby and Dominick Iaquinto tell you about their vision to make Nestor the "Visionary Of The Year" in 2024.
“What did do you do wrong, Nestor?” “Why would the Ravens throw you out?” “Why are you the only one in the local media whom they’ve thrown out?” “Why have they treated you this way?” “WHAT DID YOU DO WRONG!?!” I am fed up with these questions from Baltimore sports fans so I wrote to the owner because these questions are his to answer. Letters to John Harbaugh and Eric DeCosta are also coming soon.
