  1. vs. RED SOX, 9/18

    Twins, down 2-1 in the top of the 8th, have loaded the bases with one out against Betances. Girardi going to Chapman. Sanchez is as bad at catching the ball as any ML catcher I can recall seeing.
  2. vs. RED SOX, 9/18

    Too bad we can't put a really effective starter like Ubaldo out there every game.
  3. vs. RED SOX, 9/18

    And how about all those walks?
  4. vs. RED SOX, 9/18

    I saw that one. Was that his only bunt of the year?
  5. vs. RED SOX, 9/18

    I wish Chris Davis would put on a classless display like that once in a while, like when we need a base runner in the late innings.
  6. vs. YANKEES, 9/17

    Bad move, IMO. But he got away with it. Zach looked real good. Wish we'd had more save opportunities for him.
  7. vs. YANKEES, 9/17

    // And have to pay two guys for the same job? I don't think so.

    And have to pay two guys for the same job? I don't think so.
  9. vs. YANKEES, 9/17

    Ubaldo completes the OQS (Orioles Quality Start) -- 5 innings, 5 runs or less. I missed the HR, but he looks sharp. A good game to end his career on?
  10. vs. YANKEES, 9/16

    It looks like last night's nailbiter may be the high point of this series for us. This is excruciating. It's barely even baseball -- it's like watching the Asian Little League teams pummel outmatched US teams years ago -- but without a mercy rule. And without the same kind of all-out effort from the tea, getting pummeled.
  11. Are we a bad team masquerading as a mediocre one?

    I would like to see a smart, young (I was surprised to see that Ng is 48 -- time flies) GM that might drag this franchise into the 21st century. (I proposed Ng as an example of the kind of person the Orioles should hire one or two GM vacancies ago.) But I doubt we'll get anyone who hasn't either been a GM before or been around the organization for a while. I don't have any reason to think that Brady or Buck has the qualities I would look for in a GM. Buck, in fact, seems to lack those qualities from what I can see in his decisions as a manager. Brady's off-field qualities (other than in conditioning players) remain something of a mystery to me.
  12. vs. YANKEES, 9/16

    It's harder to tell in baseball than in just about any other sport, but the veterans appear to have quit.
  13. vs. YANKEES, 9/16

    Girardi is the smartest manager ever. Just ask him.
  14. vs. YANKEES, 9/16

    According to YES, he said his neck hurts -- and now he's hurt the team pretty badly.
  15. vs. YANKEES, 9/16

    Beckham has been showing flashes of the form that led the Rays to make him available.
