does he still get a pension?

pretty sure he's more interested in keeping his staff around than in his pension.
do you mean keeping his direct reports around his staff?

on the one hand, he's had the seat for 24 years... i'm sure he's ready to do something else.

on the other hand, he won the seat in 2020 by a relatively slim margin: 51.3 vs. 48.6.  if that same R runs again, you gotta think he'd be the fav to win based on name recognition alone.  maybe the retiree will help the eventual D nominee and share some of his mojo...

he will still receive the rest of his salary for this year, and $17M for next year.  being paid after you leave... great gig if you can get it.

That may just be the worst signing ever (the big contract)


Something really fishy the way he fell of a cliff

Sorry, I should have checked here first.  It's way worse than that - see the O's thread.

The O's knew he was on Adderall and never anticipated he would lose the exemption with MLB.  once that was gone, so were his contributions to the offense.
