    Gotta go with Cal.
  1. That blame does not belong to the organization or the fans though. That's an MLB thing. To build on the fact that I don't watch the Nats on O's off nights, I don't watch ANY baseball other than O's baseball - ever. I'm not even that much of a baseball fan (I mean, I am - I love the game) as much as I'm a hard core O's fan. I don't even watch the post season anymore if we're not in it.
  2. I just don't think there's any real reason to hate the Nats as O's fans. They're in a different league, so we don't play enough to get a real, bad-blood rivalry going. As for the opposing fan bases, there is way too much friendly intermingling going on to develop any real hatred. For the record, I don't really have much of an opinion one way or the other about them. I dislike NL baseball - kind of a lot - so I don't watch their games on O's off nights (I actually get a good night's sleep instead). But 25 Nuggets is right. If this becomes a rivalry at some point, it will happen on its own. Meeting in the World Series would be a good place to start.
  3. LOL - I think this automatically wins the thread.
  4. LOL. SilentJames is the Baltimore Inferiority Complex personified. Keep the jealousy rants coming, guy!!
  5. It's probably popular opinion around here that Hardy is still a better defender at SS than Flaherty, but by how much? Hardy has more than earned his spot for the rest of this season, but I think he should be sitting more often. Once a week at least, IMO. He's becoming hard to watch out there. He just looks so stiff, but he's still making a lot of plays. The missed grounder was surprising, even if it was a crazy hop, and the triple play was a gift.
  6. Man. We're really spoiled in Baltimore, I guess. Over a year of near perfect bullpen support, and we're rolling over on them after a rough 3 days in New York. Good stuff.
  7. We have the coaching staff to fix him. And if they can't, we have Chance Sisco.
  8. The NL is an easier league. He should do well there, despite the loaded Mets rotation (after all, he doesn't have to face the Nats pitchers). I hope he does well, and I also hope our paths cross again, however unlikely it is.
  9. Right, that's why it's special. It's very exceptional, and I think he deserves it.
  10. Buck and the guys need to put a C on that man's chest. He's the heart and soul of this team.
  11. The only way one of our big guns was coming in to pitch the bottom of the 9th was if we managed to scratch out 2 runs in the top of the inning. Since we didn't, and it's game 10 of 162, you go ahead and leave Wilson in there and hope for extras. An annoying loss - oh well.
  12. I hear you. Which is why I said I hope they don't blow it. But Schoop is a Jones-caliber player, IMO. Can't let that guy get away under any circumstances.
  13. Sounds to me like Schoop is shaping up to be a pretty affordable, yet extremely important core player for us. Like Jones, Hardy, and Trumbo. Gotta have a few guys like this. More importantly, I hope the FO doesn't blow it with him.
  14. Sweeteners like two horses? LOL
  15. How applicable is Rougned Odor's new contract to what Schoop might get? Schoop has one more year of experience, but is two years older, and has yet to have the breakout season Odor had last year, though he's still been pretty good on both sides of the ball, IMO. Odor just signed a 6 year deal worth $49.5M. If we could get Schoop to sign that, I'd do it in a second.
