  1. Jones stated in a recent interview that they live in San Diego in the offseason, so I don’t think they are committed to staying on the East Coast. http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/23368668/adam-jones-mr-baltimore-be-oriole-life

    Is Yankee/Red Sox Hegemony coming to an end?

    Oh it’s back alright, and probably will be for some years to come.
  3. Everything’s relative, my friend.
  4. Apparently the theory is to have the reliever get through the tough part of our lineup and then bring in the guys who usually start to begin their outings against the bottom part of the order. http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/23596836/tampa-bay-rays-again-start-relief-pitchers-series-vs-baltimore-orioles
  5. It got the job done in 2015.

    Seamus Curran

    I can’t quite figure out if Seamus Curran is a prospect or not. He lost most of 2017 to injury (13 games played), but is still only 20 years old playing at Delmarva. He’s striking out at a ridiculous rate (53 times in 147 AB), but hitting for respectable average (.257) and good power (he hit his 8th HR tonight). The strikeouts are a problem but considering his age and lack of pro experience, you’d think he might cut down on those over time. It will be interesting to see what happens with him as his season progresses.

    The Orioles, 10 games at a time

    Games 41-50: 4-6, 45 RS, 45 RA; starters 58.1 IP, 4.93 ERA We’ve still had a losing record in every 10-game segment this year. Our 45 runs scored is a bit misleading because the runs were really skewed: 17 in the first game of the set, 9 in the last, 19 in the other 8 games combined (7 of which were in one game; all others were 3 runs or less). Still, I guess you’d say this was our best 10-game segment so far this year, for whatever that’s worth.
  8. Yeah, not having a .196 hitter in the lineup cost us a World Series. 🙄

    Cubs rumored to have deal (offer) for Manny

    Me too. If we were a contending team right now, I’d want to pay the market price and keep Manny. And if we had signed Manny 3-4 years ago, we’d be paying less than market price and I might even want to keep him if the team was losing and try to rebuild around him. But paying market price to have him on a losing team is just a waste of money better spent on other things.
  10. Sure, but that was when he was climbing the hill and driving towards free agency. Now that he’s made his guaranteed pile of dough, and has three kids, he may just not work as hard as he used to, and being a bit older, he may need to work harder than he used to, not less hard. So I’m not saying he’s lazy and just coasting, but he just may not be putting in quite the level of work he needs to.
  11. It’s a draw. They’re both awful. Still burned up about Game 2.

    2018 Dylan Bundy

    I was a little surprised he came out for the 9th, having thrown 106 pitches to that point. My guess is Buck wanted to give him a shot at the team record for most strikeouts in a game (15). He didn’t get any strikeouts in the 9th, but didn’t labor too much, throwing only 15 pitches in the inning.

    The O’s saw 202 pitches today

    Now I’m really having some fun. In the infamous 30-3 game (which I had the misfortune of attending), the O’s threw 252 pitches. I’m actually surprised that’s all! That team threw 200+ pitches five times in regulation.

    The O’s saw 202 pitches today

    The White Sox, on the other hand, already had a 205-pitch game this year, in which they didn’t need to pitch the 9th inning! That’s 25.6 pitches per inning for an entire game!

    The O’s saw 202 pitches today

    For what it’s worth, the O’s pitching staff has already thrown 200+ pitches in a game twice this year, but both times the game went 12+ innings (the two Yankee games we won in extras). 192 is their high in regulation this year.
