  1. Exactly! There were a few times last night when he got the K, but still missed the target by over a foot. The one to Encarnacion in the 4th comes to mind. There is just no confidence that he can throw his offspeed pitches for strikes or to even look like they will be strikes so hitters can't layoff.
  2. I would also hope this is a sign that Buck and DD know we aren't contenders and need to be sellers rather than buyers in July. Now whether they believe that and whether they can convince Angelos of that may be different stories.
  3. Completely disagree re Machado. No one thinks this two months is a sign of regression. I think we would get a huge haul for him.
  4. Of course he should be welcomed back. He provided the Orioles with one of the best 5 year runs from any player in history and was vital to the 96 and 97 playoff teams. As for the PED's, we've signed and played numerous players who have admitted or who have proven PED use in their past (Cruz, Roberts, Asher, recently Montero). Why should those players who had done nothing for the O's previously be welcomed with open arms and Palmeiro, who did quite a bit, shunned?
  5. I agree with this. I think Brady will be the next GM or will choose the next GM to work under him in some role. I know Brady irritated some coaches and at least one player (Wieters) but how is his relationship with Buck? Believing that Brady's elevation into a personnel role is inevitable, I have been encouraged with some of his responses in interviews regarding analytics and his belief in locking up our own young players before they get close to free agency. If memory serves, he was openly critical that there were not more aggressive attempts to lock up Manny a few years ago.
  6. Not sure if it's the open stance causing this, but I have noticed his eyes are looking into left field on an awful lot of his swings. It was easily noticeable on a few of the swings last night.
  7. I have this same sentiment, but about Davis. I think his hand injury bothered him more than he or anyone else let on. It's always a concern when hitters injure their hands or wrists, and I'm guessing his hand was hurt all year long and it greatly affected his swing.
  8. Buck, McDowell....now we need to hire Paul O'Neill, Danny Tartabull and Keith Hernandez and we'll have all the Seinfeld stars.
  9. Am I late, or has someone already posted that Heyman is reporting the O's won't make a Q.O. to Wieters?
  10. Not to mention Cleveland still playing for home field.
  11. Or that Boston is just a better overall team.
  12. For whatever reason, I like playing Boston in Boston more so than playing them at home. A split would be fine with me.
  13. It definitely beats the days when "'Baltimore' should be on the road uniforms' was the major topic of discussion after the all star break.
  14. I could be wrong, and I apologize for not looking this up, but I believe I heard that Tampa has won 9 of the last 10 season series against Toronto.
  15. Don't really mind today's lineup, but Kim surely should have pinch hit for Joseph.
