  1. If we could just trade for/develop more 1B and DH and convert them into outfielders, we'd be fine.
  2. vs. YANKEES, 9/15

    That Trumbo play sums up the season. Coulda, shoulda, didn't.
  3. Was it 05 when the O's were in or near first up until the All Star Break then crashed and burned? That is my "worst" season of (relatively) recent times. At least 2017 was somewhat exciting up until early September.
  4. Not the worst by a long shot, but it has been high on the "stick in you craw" list. Mainly because if they had addressed the starting pitching situation this past offseason, this team probably makes the playoffs. I know it's easier said than done, but DD did nothing. Actually worse than nothing, by not retaining Gonzo.
  5. Bigdomke1

    Agree with Frobby, at this point there is no reason to debate trading CD or his contract because it ain't happening. My only hope- and I am probably grasping at straws- is that he has a history of being very hot or very cold, and this is a prolonged cold spell. Unlikely, but I'm hoping he gets his groove back, because he isn't going anywhere.
  6. Magically Mediocre: your 2017 Baltimore Orioles

    Yes this could be (and is at times) a fun team. But the starting pitching is just so god awful. You can certainly ponder what may have been if the Orioles had a couple decent starters. I try not to because it is so frustrating.
  7. vs. YANKEES, 9/07

    Wow. I guess we get "bad Kevin" today.
  8. The Wildcard Race

    Yes, today hurt my morale. At home, September, playoff race, our 1 vs their 5...and everyone came up small. Hoping for the best from here on out, but after a blah series vs the Jays and this loss, my expectations are much lower than a week ago.
  9. vs. YANKEES, 9/04

    I hate Girardi, but he is making the right moves so far today, unlike another manager who shall remain nameless.
  10. vs. YANKEES, 9/04

    Well that didn't go well.
  11. vs. YANKEES, 9/04

    Was also hoping to save Castro for tomorrow when JH gets shelled.
  12. vs. YANKEES, 9/04

    Offense has to pick up Bundy.
  13. Had to go with the resurgent potential of the MiL system. I include Mancini in that as well. As recently as earlier this year I was convinced the farm was a barren place, so it feels great to know there may be help on the way. Schopp and Bundy have had excellent seasons, but I have always thought both had the potential, it is just nice to see them coming through.
  14. What Trades Will the Orioles Make?

    Extremely disappointed. I have no idea how we are supposed to get a WC with the kind of starting pitching seen the last two games. DD's strategy is puzzling to me this season.
  15. vs. Mariners, 8/30 Day Game

    Jeeze what a rollercoaster. And it's only the 5th!
