    Is there the hot stove radio show tonight?

    David says he turned a corner when Caleb flashed the slider. He began to trust his stuff since others did. https://www.mlb.com/orioles/video/hess-optimistic-for-2019-season/c-2522197883?tid=40172882

    Brandon Hyde Article on The Athletic

    I laughed when I read this excerpt from a Santa Rosa, CA newspaper: "Sometime during the phone conversation, Brandon Hyde’s 10-year-old son, Colton, walked into his house in Evanston, Illinois. “Colton!” Lisa Hyde greeted her boy. “Daddy got the job with the Orioles!” There was a pause. And then Colton asked, “Is that good news or bad news?” “Which is exactly what we were thinking,” Lucy Hyde said with a laugh as she recounted the story." https://www.pressdemocrat.com/sports/9182873-181/barber-brandon-hyde-from-santa

    Anyone Following Manny?

    True dat but it's always refreshing to hear what the entertainers really think or feel they must say to "have their comrades' and union's back". Just like when Manny used the "Joe Hustle" comment. It is another peek into the inner Manny, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, IMO. It is an entertainment industry and we the fans can decide what we want to do with our money or spare time here on the interwebs.

    The Yankees have spent some serious money

    FTFY - I wanted to "clean it up" 😇 Not that you're bitter or anything but I agree! I need to remind my "Yankee friends" of these simple facts.

    Is that a younger Eduardo Encina next to Cal? Good read!
  11. FTFY I was gonna mention wOBA, FIP and BABIP, fToT, etc. (whatever they mean) also, but thanks for clarifying! When you said that about analytics, I can't get it out of my head!

    The "I'm getting old" jolt

    Good one! For me it was hitting forty. I remember sitting in the office while folks were "congratulating me". I can still see myself looking down, with my head nearly between my legs and bemoaning that fact. 39 isn't all that bad but forty? No woman would ever return my furtive look of flirtation. I could no longer throw out a guy trying to score from third from left field. No more sub 40 minute 10 K's and on and on. That was a big wake up call for me and even at 75, I'd not want to go back to work and redo 35 years of whatever. I still look in the mirror each day and say, "Who TF is that?" All of these age spots, knees creaking, a fib, blood thinners, beta blockers, etc. I have been retired for 22 years with relatively good health. I still walk 9 or 18 holes carrying my bag. I swim a mile and may even shoot my age this year (I've come within one stroke). So it's not over but enjoy the ride! As I also learned last year, you can be bike riding one minute and in the ER one hour later. 😍

    Elias' Brady comments (Connolly article)

    Brady hits 55! May he reign long and prosperously! ⚾ " ... Brady Anderson, who is turning 55 but could legitimately pass for 35. Brady was a mainstay atop the Orioles’ lineup from 1988-2001, and is the club’s all-time leader in stolen bases with 307. He also ranks in the Birds’ top five in hits (1,614), runs (1,044), doubles (329), and triples (64). Anderson now serves in some vague role in the O’s front office where it seems like he’s constantly just getting in the way. But Mike Elias has kept him around, so perhaps Brady can serve a purpose if he has an actual, specified job with clear accountability. https://www.camdenchat.com/2019/1/18/18187274/orioles-news-links

    LOL the "enemy" (dirty ratsafrass) - no one wanted him on their 40 man. Shocking in a way - and he wants to be our latex salesman also I bet. 😇
