  1. I think Britton has the inside track on Hunter's job. Eveland is setting himself up for whenever there is an injury.
  2. That's arguable. He can be good, but I don't feel that he always is. So he's inconsistent.
  3. So you are comfortable giving a player--with a barely above-average career OPS+, whom hasn't topped an .800 OPS or .335 OBP or 25 homers or 36 walks in a season except for his 2012 paces through two months, and is an inconsistent defender--$120 million dollars until he is 35?
  4. With the 6 1/3 innings tonight, that gives him 50 IP on the year. That surpasses the 49 2/3 from last year. His ERA last season was 2.2-times higher than it is right now. He has the same number of strikeouts, five fewer walks...along with 23 fewer hits and only five homers compared to 18 in 2011.
  5. Would you really consider La Liga elite? I don't know much, but everything I hear is that the league is essentially the Yankees, the Red Sox and a choice of eighteen International and Pacific Coast League clubs. Do those two bring up the level enough for the entire league?
  6. He's coming on strong, but he's got a point. Everyone has spent a decade and a half complaining about not having a winning team. Why are so few willing to enjoy when this team is winning? Just look at tonight. Under-17,000 at the Yard. Mostly Red Sox fans, but why weren't there 5,000 more Orioles fans to balance things out? Why weren't there 10,000 more Orioles fans there to take them out of the game?
  7. Been a while since anyone discussed this show around here...so long it's now GONE! Fantastic way to go, though. Ended exactly as it should have.
  8. C'mon man, didn't you watch House last week? Guys with cancer get any chicks they want.
  9. Wait...who thinks they are playing in Maryland? They're almost three miles in the District.
  10. Some, if they are still in good condition, might be used again (like when the umpire puts a ball back in his bag). Mostly batting practice, though, or the bullpen, or other non-game events on the field.
  11. That doesn't make what I said irrelevant. Griffith giving up Baltimore would be like the Orioles giving up rights to a new team in Charlotte: technically it was within the territory decreed in the rules, but there was no upside to vetoing the move. Whereas when the Nationals came calling, the Orioles had thirty years of radio and television rights and a significant portion of their fan base coming from that part of a much more interconnected region. So there was no upside to allowing a move.
  12. There were a huge number of changes over that 50-year stretch. Baltimore and Washington were far more distinct regions back then. Even though DC's civic population was at ~800,000, Baltimore still outpaced them by ~150,000. There wasn't any real radio money, let alone TV money, affecting where teams would play. There wasn't any real Senators' fan base in Baltimore, either. There is far more to it than simply one team had veto rights and the other didn't.
  13. Absolutely. If you're down 6-0 it is unnecessary, and makes you look bad, but it is never against any rule.
