  1. vs. TIGERS, 4/19

    I'm not worried about Cobb. I'm irked that some dingus in the O's organization scouted Tillman and thought he looked good. And somebody thought it was smart to bring Cobb up without him actually pitching in, you know, any real games. Idiotic, honestly.
  2. Orioles announce new Theme Nights at the Park

    That's awesome! I didn't realize they did this before.
  3. vs. TIGERS, 4/19

    Gotta keep chipping away.
  4. vs. TIGERS, 4/19

    I'm hoping after this start Buck realizes that Beckham can't be trusted at 3B. Doubtful, but hoping.
  5. vs. TIGERS, 4/19

    Just an observation from watching him. The metrics are showing he's below average, but we're talking about a small sample size so far. He's already botched at least 3 by my count for Cobb. Including a 3rd strike on McCann prior to the error by Beckham.
  6. vs. TIGERS, 4/19

    Sisco's pitch framing is abysmal.
  7. Orioles announce new Theme Nights at the Park

    Absolutely love it. Big respect to the Orioles to have the LGBT Pride Night. Very proud of them.
  8. Anderson vs. Jones

    Brady Anderson's 8 year peak (1992-2000): .270/.378/.465 .843 OPS, 120 OPS+. Adam Jones's 8 year peak (2009-2016): .279/.320/.469 .788 OPS, 112 OPS+ Brady Anderson's total dWAR: -3.8 Adam Jones's total dWAR: 1.5 Brady Anderson's total WAR: 35 Adam Jones's total WAR: 31.6 I think Adam Jones will meet or exceed Brady's total WAR. But it'll be close. All in all, I think I appeciate Brady's total game more than Adam's. But I still dig both in general.
  9. I definitely regret purchasing season tickets *and* the MLB.tv subscription after tough losses. ...but then the next day I'm back like an idiot. Go figure.
  10. This team is cooked

    Mancini or Alvarez at first is a debacle waiting to happen. DJ Stewart is hitting 242 in AAA with a 333 SLG. Saunders slugged 345 last year. He's hitting 121 in AAA. Sisco may be the future, but he's not exactly a good catcher defensively. Granted Caleb has taken a major step back this year defensively. Tillman I agree.
  11. This team is cooked

    Because this is a forum for fans and fans can be fanatical...and this team is frustrating as all get out? I invest time, energy and money into the team. Being perturbed that they continue to be an absolute dumpster fire isn’t unreasonable.
  12. This team is cooked

    I mean, he doesn't have much better options here, does he?
  13. This team is cooked

    I'll go on the record. A team that is fielding guys like Engelb Vielma, pinch hits a blackhole of an offensive player like Caleb Joseph for Luis Sardinas and then has multiple Rule V guys (or recent Rule V guys) clogging up the roster is not a recipe for success. One of the best offensive players (who also was struggling) is on the DL in Schoop. Aside from Machado and Mancini...and recently Pedro Alvarez...most of the team is batting under .250 or has an OPS well under .700. There is no team speed. The Manny Machado to SS and insert-random-person-here at 3B has been an utter failure. Chris Davis looks like a little leaguer and is showing no signs of turning it around. The bullpen has *1* effective/reliable arm in Richard Bleier. Everybody else has taken major steps back (Givens, Brach) or have been erratic and already has blown games (Darren O'Day). Britton is at least a month away and even *he* was erratic last year when he came back. The defense is poor especially at catcher. The only bright spot...and this is truly shocking...is the rotation. Which even though it's not great, it's at least serviceable. This team is outmatched in nearly every single facet compared to the likes of the Red Sox and Yankees. They look worse than the Rays. This team won't sniff a Wild Card. They'll be lucky to even hit a .500 record. They're beginning to look more like a 69 win team. Can somebody counter the above?
  14. vs. TIGERS, 4/18 (1:10 PM Start)

    Whodatunk going into the season with a bullpen hobbled together with cheap glue would be a good idea.
  15. vs. TIGERS, 4/18 (1:10 PM Start)

    lol. This team is a disaster.
