  1. End of season top 25?

    Or Trumbo (against right handers).
  2. Now we need to get OVER .500

    2 games out of the second WC spot on August 27th isn't already in striking range?
  3. This is such an ugly performance by the Red Sox. Especially in the field. Makes me wonder how they're going to stay in first place.
  4. Holding Runners on 1B

    OK, so this has always bugged me. One of the things the O's preach to their middle infielders (correct me if I'm wrong) is to straddle the 2B bag when receiving throws. Let the ball travel to the bag before making a tag. The speed of the throw beats the speed of the tag. My question... why not have the first baseman do the same thing when holding runners on 1B? Most first basemen put their right foot on the bag, left foot towards the mound or home plate. They receive the throw from the pitcher but have to sweep the tag towards the bag. Why not set up in the same way as the middle infielders? Straddle the bag, let the ball travel to the base, gets there more quickly. What am I missing?
  5. Sign him.

    Exactly I also wonder... if he wasn't an Oriole, and he wanted to sign with the Orioles next offseason, would he even pass the physical with his knees?
  6. The Walk Off

    With only 1 out, Flaherty was awfully sure that Trout wasn't gonna get that one.
  7. Ongoing Lineup Thread, 2017

    True... but he's not our best hitter, just our hottest hitter.
  8. Ongoing Lineup Thread, 2017

    Or maybe because he's getting more pitches to hit with Manny and Schoop hitting behind him?
  9. Austin Hays 2017

    Heck... I'd promote him now, and option Rickard (does Joey still have options?)
  10. Austin Hays 2017

    True... but did he start the year in Frederick, get moved up to Bowie, then came to play 3B with the O's?
  11. Austin Hays 2017

    Wasn't Machado promoted the same way? Though I wouldn't call 3 (4?) occurrences over the last 11 years as "fairly common", I understand your point. The Orioles have promoted from AA when it a player earns it.
  12. Austin Hays 2017

    Hays is hitting better at Bowie than he did with Frederick... now slashing 333/367/980. I wish he was getting Rickard's ABs.
  13. Yaz may be a keeper

    Here's the game on Baseball Reference. Finley got 1 AB before being lifted for Joe Orsulak in the 4th inning.
  14. Yaz may be a keeper

    Perhaps I'm remembering opening day of the '89 season? Finley made a splendid running catch, slamming into the fence, had to leave the game I think.
  15. Yaz may be a keeper

    Tell me that doesn't remind you of the catch Steve Finley made on the first opening day at Camden Yards, the one where he slammed into the fence in RF. (at least I think that was opening day at Camden Yards)
