    Six Years Ago

    I will never forget that game. That was the kind of game the Orioles of old always found a way to lose. When they won, it was the first time I believed they had turned the team around. I think I actually cried at some point.
  2. How much of this is guys getting worse because of Buck compared to guys getting older and therefore worse while Buck is the manager? I'll bet it's mostly the latter.

    vs. YANKEES, 4/06

    I think I'd have told Joseph to take the next three pitches at 3-0

    vs. TWINS, 3/29 (Opening Day)

    After those first couple at bats, wouldn't it be something if Schoop had a walk-off walk here?

    vs. TWINS, 3/29 (Opening Day)

    Walking Davis to bring up Machado seems like a terrible idea

    O’ Vs Pirates 3/2

    If you're going to ground into a double play, strike out

    vs. RED SOX, 4/21

    Panda playing second base, this should be good

    What can we expect/hope for from Wade Miley?

    FIP/xFIP numbers: Wade Miley 3.18/2.89 Ariel Miranda 4.56/4.05 Andrew Triggs 2.56/4.09 Based on these numbers, I'm certainly not regretting the Miranda trade. I was surprised to see Triggs's FIP was so low. xFIP doesn't like him nearly as much, but both FIP and xFIP show that while Miley isn't likely to end the season with a sub-2 ERA, his performance to date seems much more likely to continue than Triggs's.
  9. The only way I extend Jones is with the understanding he may not be a center fielder for the life of he contract

    Which reliever has more trade value?

    Depending on how much of a "win-now" mentality I had, I'd probably want Britton most, followed by Givens then Brach. If I was dead set on winning now, I'd flip Brach and Givens.
  11. Miranda way outpitched his peripherals in Seattle and Miley underpitched his in Baltimore. When all is said and done I think we'll like this trade just fine.
  12. I see where he's coming from, but if statistics have shown "clutch" hitting to be random variation, is there any reason to think differences between men on/bases empty aren't just random variation?
  13. Why is Pedro Alvarez being penalized for hitting too many solo shots? He can't make people get on base in front of him.

    vs. YANKEES, 9/04

    IIRC, he didn't have trouble with lefties in Korea and I trust that over the small sample size of twenty-something MLB plate appearances
