  1. Manny Machado Appreciation Thread

    Gotcha. I was hoping for better news
  2. Manny Machado Appreciation Thread

    Do you know something I dont? Usually these appreciation threads are for players that have left the Os ...
  3. Vidal Nuno vs Jayson Aquino

    I agree with Weams. Saw Aquino pitch several times last year. Reminds me of Arthur Rhodes. I believe he will be effective pitcher in major leagues in 2017 or 2018.
  4. Hardy Already Dealing With Sore Back

    I keep thinking that Chris Davis could slide over to 3rd, opening 1st for Trumbo or Mancini.
  5. Update: O's sign Trumbo to 3yr/$37 mil deal

    Personal opinion ... O's and Trumbo have the framework for a deal set up. Trumbo's agent wants to take it to other clubs to beat, so the O's release through Roch 'our offer is off the table' so that it cant be used by the agent for leverage. Just part of the dance ...
  6. Welcome to the new Board

    Hmmm, ok. I never thought the old one was mobile unfriendly, but this one looks good. I am in the habit of accessing multiple boards from tapatalk ... i can certainly adjust to this one being separate ... its my primary source for orioles info ...
  7. Welcome to the new Board

    Still not getting tapatalk to work with the new site ... any suggestions?
  8. Pitching coach candidates

    Id like to see Scotty in the role, but i dont think he really wants it. I had a chance to speak with him a couple of weeks ago and it sounded like it was more than he wanted to take on. Personally, i think he'd be fabulous. I like griffin and mills, too, and Ross Grimsley is a former pitching coach ... lots of talent around the organization. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  9. Just need to add my 2 cents. I have always respected Adam, and this story only increases that respect. The 8% number surprised me, but then again race is not a factor for me in watching the orioles. For a while i volunteered in an organization that brings baseball to the inner city, and i saw a bunch of kids that really wanted to play ball but didnt have enough equipment, fields, or coaching to make it stick.

  10. Jason Garcia Start Today

    I thought Jason looked good in richmond. Fastball 93-94 ... Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  11. Good curve and change tonight. Fastball sat right at 90. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  12. I thought he looked very good in richmond a few weeks ago. Reminds me of Arthur Rhodes Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  13. What happened to Chris Lee?

    No obvious sign of injury ... top step of the dugout most of the time watching the games. Signed baseballs with left hand, no restricted movement of arm, elbow, etc ... Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  14. Did not look good last night. Many of the outs were rockets to the outfield. Fastball sat at 89-90, once hit 92. Slow curve got some ugly swings and misses. Got to adjust to this level. The way the fastballs were being hit I'd guess they didn't have much movement. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
  15. Definitely in the low 90s on the diamond gun. Nice offspeed pitch too that made a couple of hitters look foolish. Looking forward to seeing Means tonite. Sent from my SM-G900V using Tapatalk
