  1. It's very worrisome.
  2. He pitched 26 innings in a 30 days span in August. That's why he's tired.
  3. 5 Orioles prospects poised for a breakout in 2018.

    I'm very interested to see how our resident experts rank the various Aberdeen pitchers. Lots of interesting pitchers there.
  4. Well, there were people who pointed out his .196 season in 2014. There was a risk that could recur. But this year is significantly worse from an overall production standpoint.
  5. Some people were just happy to see that Angelos would pony up for a player he really wanted. Some were more optimistic about Davis' future than others. I'd say the first two years have fallen within the bottom 10% of likely outcomes - especially this year. And nobody saw the "bat frozen on shoulder" thing coming. That's the part that worries me the most.
  6. Fan appreciation or fan ripoff weekend?

    I think they only give away two sizes, XL and medium. If you're a small, large or XXL or larger, you're out of luck. Of course, a small person can always wear a medium, or a large can wear an XL, and just look a little baggy. It doesn't really work the other way around.
  7. It's Time to Play the Youngins

    I think the only way DD would "mutually agree to part ways" is if he was allowed to explore opportunities with other teams first. He's not going to walk away from a year's salary unless he knows he can make as much or more with another team. Of course, they can always agree that he'll leave but Angelos will pay him his salary to be a "consultant" until he lands another job, or something like that.
  8. Ongoing Lineup Thread, 2017

    Buck's made it pretty clear that Santander's just here to fulfill the Rule 5 requirements. "Santander is kind of, we know what's going on there." http://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2017/09/notes-on-bundy-miley-bullpen-and-young-players.html
  9. Fan appreciation or fan ripoff weekend?

    I get tickets to 8 games a year via my ticket group, and this year I made it a priority to select as many giveaway games as I could. So far I've scored the Zach Britton bobblehead, OPACY replica, and Schoop t-shirt, and this weekend I'll be getting the hooded sweatshirt. And didn't have to pay premium prices! On the spur of the moment, I also went to the late-scheduled Beckham t-shirt game, which wasn't on the original promotional calendar.
  10. Ongoing Lineup Thread, 2017

    Manny's sick, per Roch.
  11. Poll: What should the Orioles do with Trumbo?

    I wouldn't have considered 35 a lock by any means, but if pressed, I certainly would have taken the "over" on 30. That's why I don't gamble. I hope he's able to bounce back next year, assuming he's still with the O's.
  12. The Wildcard Race

    Well if the Twins lose today (they're losing 9-3 in the 5th), the most that any team could win to get the 2nd WC will be 88 games, which already is fewer than it took for the Orioles to get there last year. Before the game, BP had the Twins projected at 83.2 mean outcome. Fangraphs had them at 83.5. If the lose today, they'd have to go 7-3 to get to 85 wins. It's a shame we've played so poorly. The 2nd WC was there for the taking.
  13. Here's one, and there are probably others.
  14. 2017 Attendance Thread

    It was meaningful to my family. It's not like there are tons of great Jewish baseball players. My mom made sure I knew what he'd done (undoubtedly, while I was grumbling about being dragged off to services).
  15. Poll: What should the Orioles do with Trumbo?

    Another public service bump. Slightly more than half the posters were OK giving Trumbo a multi-year deal. 39% didn't want him back.
