  1. Would you prefer International bonus pool money? 😉
  2. For only the 2nd time in 12 tries, the Orioles won a home game. baby steps.
  3. Bundy had the lowest win total, tying Ballard & Schmidt's 1988 mark (8).
  4. Used to be 5 or more AND win. They dropped the latter requirement last year.
  5. It's all about reading the grocery store fliers, baby.
  6. Bundy and Cobb combine for....let me see, carry the one, move the decimal.....zero wins. Math is fun.
  7. They lost the Series in 5 games to the 2008 Phillies.
  8. Washington Post, March 28, 1999. https://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/local/longterm/mdleg/angelos032899.htm
  9. Arrieta calls out Harper http://www.espn.com/video/clip/clip?id=26583440
  10. Making lemonade out of lemons, the BP ERA is 6.55, 29th. Coming in at #30, the Nats, 7.41.
  11. Game 23, for only the second time the entire season to date, Orioles pitching did not surrender a HR.
  12. I'm not sure what "methodology" if any (and I doubt there is one) goes into generating these water cooler lists. At the top of the list, in particular, it seems to draw a little on what have the teams done lately, so there is a little more volatility. The Orioles have been at or near the bottom of their list despite their initial success relative to other teams at the beginning of the year. As such my assumption is that the bottom tier is due to projections and expectations rather than current outcomes. Throw in the random dartboard, magic 8 ball, or whatever else they use to compile this completely arbitrary list, and you get a sense of what weight I give to any of this, which is zero.
  13. Alex Cobb says there needs to be an investigation. Was there collusion between Manfred and Costa Rica? Maybe we can do a two-year study on it, spend millions, question hundreds of people and produce a "Clark Report" when it's all finished. The baseballs are "absolutely ridiculous" except maybe in NY, TB, and Toronto which combined have allowed 7 more HRs than the Orioles have alone. TB has surrendered 1/3 of the total of the Orioles. Are HRs up compared to this point last season, and does Cobb have a point?
  14. In the last 20 years, the Marlins exceeded 2 million, once. The Rays haven't gone over that mark since their 1998 inaugural season. Oakland has gone over 2 million six times in the past 20 years, the last being in 2014, and before that, 2005. Attendance is not going to force an Orioles move before any of those three.
  15. It raised Davis' career ERA from 0.00 to 3.00.😎 Did Davis set another record for longest time between innings pitched? 6 years, 349 days.
  16. You missed 2 HRs each from Cruz and Schoop, but I would've made the same call.
  17. Very cool visit with Kline's proud mother. Nice reminder that they are people beyond the numbers.
  18. Twinkies have more HRs than the O's have hits.
  19. I'll take you on a trip beside the ocean And drop the top at Chesapeake Bay
  20. 49 pitches and 6 runs - Cobb's going to have to take his lumps tonight.
