    Orioles Mount Rushmores

    Like I said, it was completely irrational! I also wasn't paying attention during his first stint, so I only remember his last few seasons.

    Well played, Mr. Longenhagen.

    Fowler Signs With Cubs.

    Or in this case, reading more into Dexter "Catfishing" Fowler quoting Jones than might be considered reasonable...

  8. I believe the FA/arbitration question has been asked and answered already, so I apologize if this ground has been covered, but will Kim be considered a rookie?

    Manny Misses Fan Fest (Buck Not Happy).

    But was the wedding date set before conception? THAT is the question. Season 3 of Serial, anyone?

    Manny Misses Fan Fest (Buck Not Happy).

    I know this is tongue in cheek, but this thread is hilarious to me especially in light of Ubaldo's exception. Ubaldo and his wife CHOSE the wedding date. Amber Harmon is pregnant; nature plays a bit of a factor there, with limited room for human choice regarding timing. If there is the slightest reason to be peeved at anyone, a much stronger case can be built against Ubaldo. For the record, I begrudge neither. Both are thoroughly reasonable.

  12. This. It sounded to me like he was frustrated more about Tampa Bay not being willing to swap a home for an away series instead of forcing us into false home games. I'm a bit peeved at the neighborly behavior of the Gnats. I'm more convinced than ever that the Learners are aiming to ruin the Orioles as a viable business.

    Buck on Jordan Baker

    This came to mind a few games back when Manny lost control of the bat a few games ago. They didn't show where it ended up, but from the poor angle I had it appeared to be the same general direction and strength as the infamous "intentional" bat throw from last season. Without the collective assumption of intention, it passed without comment. If this dude (the terrible ump) hadn't assumed he could read minds, the HBP would've been a note in the box score and not a news story. I've seen comments from the crew chief, who (to paraphrase) stated it was "near the head, hence and automatic ejection" in the same sentence as "the umpire has the option to issue warnings instead of immediate ejection" (which is it? automatic, or one or two options?), but I haven't seen this guy come out of hiding to explain himself. Not that I expect to, but still. Ah in any case, I'm just blowing off steam, because I'm certain that had Ubaldo not been objected, I would've witnessed my first no hitter. Obviously a rational thought process.

    vs. RED SOX, 4/17

    Theoretically the first warning can come before the game begins, but that would mean it would make less sense for it to be intentional since he was pitching a no-hitter at the time.
