  1. There is nothing clutch about this team

    According to MLB.com, the Orioles have a team OPS of .853 with runners in scoring position. That's first in the AL (essentially tied with the Astros), third in Major League Baseball. However, the Orioles are last in MLB with 809 at bats with runners in scoring position. The Astros are first with 1054 AB with RISP. There are clutch situations and there are clutch situations. (These stats probably don't include today's games)
  2. Wow, Kim is untouchable

    According to Fangraphs, yes! In fact, Hardy has 2 singles in 15 plate appearances in the ninth inning this season. Ninth inning OPS of .267
  3. Pickoffs!

    I'm pretty sure Tippy Martinez has at least 3 pick offs.
  4. Thoughts on Hyun-Soo Kim in 2017?

    Does Kim have a no-trade clause in his contract? Doesn't it seem likely that 1) Kim would like to be somewhere that he can play more regularly and a) Buck would rather have someone who he views as a nugget, which for whatever reason Buck thinks Kim isn't? I suspect Kim would get many more starts and ABs on some other teams. (Of course, the likelihood and value of the trade depends on who the Orioles would get in return.)
  5. Auburn Revived

    What in the world was Muschamp doing? His actions were/are an embarrassment to Auburn. He should be suspended, fired and otherwise disassociated from Auburn University. The penalty was too lenient, he should have been expelled from the game. Now, he should be expelled from his employment with AU.
  6. Auburn needed to take another 40 seconds to score their touchdown.
  7. According to the commentators before the Sugar Bowl, 'Bama was still the best team in the country, AU was just lucky. So, yeah, some Tide supporters have chalked up 2013 as another championship.
  8. Tough it out. You can do it. It's 17 degrees in Auburn, AL now.
  9. When Ford lines up standing, watch out.
  10. WDE! On an extra fun note, Chris Davis, Dee Ford and Steve Clark (punter) all graduated from AU last month.
  11. It's 19 degrees in Auburn, AL, but AU might be headed for a hot night.
