    vs. PHILLIES, 5/16 (12:05 PM Start)

    Well, we knew one run wasn't going to be enough today... Just hold 'em down, Cash, and maybe the offense will wake up.

    What To Make Of Manny Machado's Base Running? Um, he's not very good at it...?

    vs. TIGERS, 4/19

    12-3... Weren't the Tigers having as much trouble scoring as Baltimore was, when the Birds came to town? What an embarrassment. I have tickets to tomorrow night's game (mostly for the awesome UMBC hat). Too soon to consider wearing a bag over my head?

    This team is cooked

    Looking at the results of the past 40 games or so, it's hard to argue. But I do see some hope that our starting pitcher will be adequate enough to get us close to or at 81 wins by season's end. Not that .500 should be a goal by any stretch, but the talk of the O's being historically bad does seem a bit premature. If Bundy/Gausman/Cobb/Cashner stay healthy, this team should not lose 100 games.

    The 1984 Orioles started 5-13 and finished 85-77. Unfortunately, this 2018 squad isn't populated with defending (but aging) World Champions.

    That Sardinas HR might be more surprising than Davis' 2-out RBI hit...

    What a team! Pathetic...

    Davis with the clutch hit! I was wondering if I'd ever type that sentence again...

    Nice job by Castro and Bleier to keep the Tigers off the scoreboard in the 7th. Now, can the offense rally for a change??? Leadoff double by Trey!

    Wright vs. Tillman vs. anybody else

    Four-man rotation, anyone?

    vs. RED SOX, 4/13

    Had we won the WS in 2014 - which IMO we should’ve - I’d have been fine with that deal. ERod hasn’t done much since his rookie year, anyway. It’s not like we gave up Curt Schilling here...

    vs. RED SOX, 4/13

    Ugh. Anyone on this board can do what Tillman is doing. If we are lucky, this will be his final appearance in an O’s uniform.

    vs. BLUE JAYS, 4/09

    One bad pitch to Pearce, of all people... 😤 C’mon, O’s, at least get this thing to extras. At least get Bundy off the hook. Three starts, 1.3 ERA, no wins. ☹️

    vs. YANKEES, 4/08

    Yeah, he did eventually lay into Manny, as far as Bordick ever does at least. But his initial comments were infuriating to me before the umps had reversed it (when it seemed obvious to me that it was gonna be changed).

    vs. YANKEES, 4/08

    I just rewound it to watch it, and during the replay delay, Bordick says. “Nice play by Manny actually going to that back hand side against the lefty, tough play...” then he eventually talked about him taking too long. By then I was too furious to care what Bordy was saying.
