  1. Great thread. I was 17 and just starting college. I used to be cool too. Now I'm a boring accountant with a wife, son, and newborn twin girls. I don't get much sleep these days, but I always sleep much better after the O's win. Winning even makes changing diapers that much more bearable.
  2. I've got little confidence myself. It's maddening watching him struggle to throw strikes, especially with the stuff he has. I'm not writing the game off by any means though. Luckily we have a rested bullpen thanks to a nice string of quality starts.
  3. I'm definitely a lurker and probably only post when I've had one too many bourbons. I think maybe traffic is up because the Orioles are winning and attracting some of the closetted fans (not that there is anything wrong with that) and having Orioles in the site name helps direct them here. That said, I'm already signed up, so I have no preference!

    Chris Davis

    Count me as not sold as well, although it was encouraging that he hit his homerun against a left hander off a breaking ball. I was reading an article about Albert Pujols' poor start and it mentioned in it that Chris Davis has one of the worst averages against breaking balls. At this point though, I just wish we could find players that can field!
  5. I said no. Granted, I've never seen him pitch, nor have I even read much about him, but the ghost of Dice K terrifies me.
  6. I just want to say that I only gave my initial reaction to what I thought of his comments. I love Adam Jones as a baseball player and I love the improvement I've seen since we first traded for him. I just thought his arrogance was a little off-putting given the team has, what, 66 wins? On the other hand, I knew I should have finished that 6 pack so I wouldn't take a post game interview so seriously!!
  7. I'm not at all saying he doesn't work hard. All I'm saying is that he is occasionally prone to the mental mistakes, especially in center field. I'm not saying he overestimates his abilities. I do think that maybe that feeling of invincibility gets him into trouble every once in a while. I've seen him being interviewed alot of times, and I've never seen that brashness out of him. Given the teams performance, and I'm not at all attributing the failures to him, I'm just saying that perhaps a little humility is in order.
  8. I saw the interview as well and I almost had the opposite reaction. I kind of cringed at how cocky he was, and it didn't seem like he was joking. Don't get me wrong, you want your "stars" to be confident, but a little humility never hurts. Too confident, and maybe you overlook some of the shortcomings in your game.
  9. I'm shocked. It seems like just yesterday I was watching him close out the top of the 9th at Memorial Stadium with a wicked curve. RIP Flanny.
  10. Hail to the King, baby. First you want to kill me. Now you want to kiss me............... Blow.
  11. I gave it a 6. The lineup would look alot better with a bonafied cleanup hitter. The lineup does have the potential for alot of doubles though.
  12. <p><p><p>New to the hangout but had something to offer my fellow fans. I've been sittin on a set of 5 pictures for close to 15 years now of Cal swingin and hittin the homerun in the 2131 game. I also have the mound conference to authenticate the set with the pitcher Mark Langston of the Cali Angels. This is a beautiful set and if anyone is interested out there and I'd be glad to email copies. I don't know if I'm able to post my cell number but I'll try. My name is Terry. Call anytime and maybe we can make a trade or come up with a fair exchange. I currently live in VA now. Give me a call at 757-687-9818 or email me at cboehustler@yahoo.com. I'd be glad to hear from ya. Take care</p></p></p>
