  1. Yeah, interesting to note he hasn't been in the OF since July 7th.

    Ryan McKenna 2019

    Leads the league in runs scored BTW
  3. I have 2 boys. They hate baseball, despite my best efforts. Probably a good topic for another thread - why our youth are choosing other sports...
  4. I don’t care about the price of games. I would not take my family to see a game if they rolled out the red carpet for us and everything was free. It’s more relaxing and convenient to watch bad baseball in the comfort of my home, with the ability to change the channel once I’m bored.

    DL Hall 2019

    Not a Future's Game though - above is from the AZ League AS Game.

    Dunno specifically, but no one from either side broke 88. Which I suppose is telling.

    Guessing the stadium gun is slow? He had one pitch at 88 on Friday, nothing else above 87. Looked good though, looks like a grown man out there.
  8. This guy. He was horrendous. Loafed about the field like he was hot stuff. http://www.milb.com/player/index.jsp?sid=milb&player_id=606312#/career/R/hitting/2014/ALL

    Adam Hall 2019

    Saw that too Michael: https://www.baltimorebaseball.com/2019/06/22/analyst-adam-mcinturff-likes-direction-orioles-system-heading/
  10. Saw him over the weekend, he can really go get it in CF.

    Adam Hall 2019

    Tough to say. Turner was in his first year at NC State at age 20, Hall is at Delmarva. Unlike Turner, Hall hasn't shown much power - but he's still growing up.
  12. One of my favorite ever non-Orioles. I wanted to BE Kirk Gibson... Not a great example of a slow trip though, as he was pretty badly injured and couldn't run the bases.
  13. Went on a draft info binge this AM. Mr. Hughes is now a free agent, undrafted as a senior. https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=hughes000jon
  14. Hit the backstop and nearly murdered someone lost in their phone. He'd fit right in.
  15. A team no one expects to finish above last didn't think Araujo was worth holding onto for 10 more measly days. A team everyone hoped would contend figured Araujo was good enough to be carried an entire season. Pretty wild swing of evaluation there.
  16. The last thing this team needs is to put stats and individual milestones ahead of the team and organization. Hess pitched 2 innings 3 days ago. If he gets hurt, what do they do? I mean their 5th “starter” is a 2 inning reliever as it is already. They can’t afford to lose Hess.
  17. Not only all of this ^^^ - but Davis was also batting LEADOFF.
  18. We make a day of it on the weekend, so no traffic. There is a nice Main Street area, with shops and restaurants. Highly recommend Pretzels and Pizza Creations on Main Street - we would make the trip just for them! It's also easy to time a promo/fireworks night night on the weekend - so lots of bang for the buck.
  19. I guess he won't have the opportunity to skip the Brewer's FanFest...
  20. Not many HOF’ers (any?) are grinding as position coaches.
  21. Man, was looking at my orange "Buckle Up" towel from the 2012 playoffs. We had some good times... The next manager will be a sacrificial lamb. It will be a miracle to find someone who can survive a rebuild. So, yeah, Bordick - sure, whatevs.
  22. I grew up in SoBo, and lived in a house on the corner of Ostend and Race (south of the stadium). My neighbor ran what I can only assume was one of the city’s only drive through heroin windows. The north end of Ravens stadium is fine. West, East, and South are dicey.
  23. Ravens fans don't seem to be scurred - and that stadium is in a much sketchier area. * Don't cite me last year's numbers, that was all about the team and the kneeling. Concerts sell out, Monster Jam sells out, Disney on Ice...hell, the Blast were drawing 5,000 fans before they moved. I think attendance is more about economics, and prioritizing discretionary spending towards more entertaining outcomes... Edit - should have went with "what he said!" ^^^
  24. If I were Cuban, Miami sure seems like the most appealing option among who has a shot. Plus no state taxes. For a young player who seems to be very into young things, Miami also sure has us beat on things like nightlife and pretty girls. (No offense, but an Baltimore 8 is like a Miami 4.) I agree with those that are saying money talks though. I can’t imagine a defector turning down the highest offer.
  25. From 1955 to 2001, we were blessed with having a future Hall of Famer on the team that we follow. Many of us here grew up in these generations - and we became used to that 'face', the player who would always endure, the light in the storm. I love what Jones did for the Orioles. I understand the article's message. But Jones ain't that guy. (Machado was...)
