  1. The Defense Thread, 2017

    I missed the Crush E, but yes the Schoop flub was another moment when I audibly moaned and pulled the visor down over my eyes. A man behind me yelled out, "Hey, Brooks Robinson!" After driving a rickety mini-RV packed to the gills with belongings 1300 miles to escape Irma, I was really thirsting for Oriole solace and instead they've only given me more anguish. I'd enjoy seeing what our best kids can do, just wish some of them were SPs.
  2. The Defense Thread, 2017

    I was in a Brooklyn bar last night and pulled my O's batting helmet down over my eyes when Trumbo failed to come in and catch a flyball that fell in for a late-inning hit. I give him credit though for not freaking out about getting close to the wall earlier in the game when going back to catch a long fly. Routine catch, but I was expecting him to make it difficult.
  3. O's dodge a bullet and stay in it

    It's over. Time to see what the prospects can do--and if they get us into the postseason, then it will be truly magic, their magic. Too bad none of the prospects are starting pitchers.
  4. (Almost) All Things Manny Machado....

    I do blame Thorne for wrapping the game up when we were down by only one run in the 9th inning, allocating the pitching W, L, and S. While sitting next to Palmer.
  5. O's trade for Hellickson

    Most of our starting pitchers are actually just motivation assistants deployed to angrify Oriole hitters into peak performance.
  6. Sign him.

    Marlins will do their best to get him. (Jeter's co-owner, but then Buck is a former Y manager and it doesn't matter.)
  7. vs. YANKEES, 9/05

    Astros 3 Mariners 1 in the 7th. Astros beat Ms 3-1 though outhit 7-2!
  8. vs. YANKEES, 9/05

    One of the few times I've preferred how Hunter would have called it! "THAT ball is GAWWWWWWWWWNNNNNNN!!!!!!!"
  9. vs. YANKEES, 9/05

    Me too--from Gary's bored voice and the outfielders I thought it was a routine flyout.
  10. vs. YANKEES, 9/05

    They must have miserable lives.
  11. vs. YANKEES, 9/05

    Let the sleeping dogs lie!
  12. vs. YANKEES, 9/05

    Gary worrying and wondering why Betances didn't throw a fastball. Who the F cares!

    Let's go O's Lets go O's Lets go O's!
  15. vs. YANKEES, 9/05

    Gary, already wrapping up the game as a Loss when we're only one down with Beckham up. Jeez.
