    Roch: Caleb will not be back, "guaranteed"

    How about Jake Fox for #15. The "Babe" of spring training. Just didn't get a chance. lol.🤣

    Rich Dubroff: Joe Angel not returning.

    Oh, I am going to miss Joe. Probably caught a 100 games a year on radio. TV sound down. Radio up. Go ahead, Joe. Don’t know what I’ll do now, with at least a 3-5 rebuild ahead. Joe made the last half of the 14 year rebuild bearable. This is just as bad as when Jon Miller was let go, and Mel and Brother Lowh. Oh, no. Don’t forget Brooksie. In their stead, we get Hunter, Cerone and Bordo. Not saying the circumstances are the same. If this is Joe’s choice, he know’s the grind ahead, and he is due for a rest. I traveled at least 2 nights a week for 11 months a year for 16 years. Bus rides, taxi rides, bag drags, airport hassles, motels, no home cooked meals, getting in at 5AM after a 16 hour day including all of the above. I loved my job, too, but when my employer said I could retire, I did so with a smile. I hope he saved a penny or two along the way and finances are not a concern. I remember Cerone. Don’t know how he got the job. A dyed in the wool Yankee. Always talking about them. Thankfully gone after a year. Ken Levine. Another personality that was in over his head as a talking head. I heard a story that Jon Miller was not impressed and basically said,”I have to go to the can.”and left Levine holding the mike for 45 minutes. Thankfully gone after a year, too. Baltimore has been fortunate in having a stellar quartet of pbp announcers on radio in their 65 year MLB history. Ernie Harwell, Chuck, Jon Miller and Joe. Very fortunate.

    Who is filling out the lineup?

    Is Brady still in the loop? Surprised no one mentioned this before. lol.

    Congratulations, Moose!

    Good for Mussina. Glad he's in the hall. He's one of the 2 best Oriole pitchers of all time and I've seen them all since Kent Peterson in '53.

    Ex-Orioles in the postseason

    Miley just seems to like pitching better in the NL. ERA+ 107\85. WHIP 1.31\1.495. Don't know why that would be. Maybe he just likes hitting and not sitting around watching CD bat. lol

    Ex-Orioles in the postseason

    John Smoltz is the color commentator for dodgers braves game. Made some excuses for Gausman. Against good teams that won't swing at breaking pitches out of the zone puts a lot of stress on his fastball command. I think we saw a lot of this against AL East teams that wouldn't help him out by swinging at pitches out of the zone.

    I want to see a Brewers, Indians WS. That should make MLB and TV money happy. lol. Want to see mega payroll teams eliminated ASAP. Also possibility of a snowed out game and balaclavas for sale next summer.

    vs. ASTROS, 9/29 (Game Two)

    Why Corbin? Where was DJ?

    vs. ASTROS, 9/29 (Game One)

    Nunez is no Machado. If he was he'd be playing for someone else.

    Final series of the season. Will you be there?

    It’s the end of another year. Have spent many spring, summers and fall since ‘53 following the Os. Yes, I go back to Ernie Harrell and Bailey Goss doing the games. I’ll miss the Os come Monday the 1st of October. Miserable season, but still Orioles baseball. I’ll be ready for spring training 2 Oct.

    vs. ASTROS, 9/28

    Double header tomorrow.

    vs. ASTROS, 9/28

    Tough way to lose. Good pitch, no hit. Tomorrow will be another chance.

    vs. ASTROS, 9/28

    I’ve seen enough of Peterson to see he’s no Brandon Fahey.
  14. OldNewGuy

    vs. ASTROS, 9/28

    Hess pitched well and at least he didn’t get a loss. A small victory.

    DJ’s inning there.
