  1. This team is clearly worse. But they're still one game ahead of last year's pace, and as long as they win at least 3 of the next 12, they'll still be come June.
  2. I always felt sorry for Wiggins. I couldn't help but think that there was some racism in some of those boos. We've had plenty of sucky second baseman over the years, but it seemed like Alan got ridden harder than most.
  3. This is what makes it amazing (historic?). It was a bad play by Alberto, but it required the assist of Chris Davis to make it mind boggling. The ball took a couple of big slow hops that made the force at home tough, and Alberto didn't have a plan B. But not the worst play ever by a long shot. I think the Wynns play was worse (from an individual perspective). He just up and fired the ball into centerfield 😜. It's gonna be tough to top these two plays for craziness, though. I guess we'll see, won't we.
  4. He has a real Wade Miley vibe to him.
  5. Here's a link to the scene. (Washer fluid = Mancini's fielding.)
  6. I know it's no sure thing, but I can't help mentally penciling in 3 of our 5 rotation spots on Opening Day 2022 with these guys.
  7. I'm glad you criticized the Gausman deal, Tony. You hear barely a peep out of any other media, and that deal sucked.
  8. I don't want to seem to be picking on you because this was an interesting post, but I'm thinking 4 Babe Ruths and a replacement level team like the current O's would be better than a team of 12 Tillmans and 13 Joneses.
  9. I think we already have some Jones and Tillman types in the minors. I don't think it's too unrealistic to expect a couple of our our young pitchers to turn out better than Tillman. But we don't have anyone that looks like a sure-fire future MVP candidate offensively. I think it's a truism that championship-caliber teams have solid players from 1-25. Most of them have several Hall-of-Fame-level talents as well. I think we are putting so much emphasis on the draft because it's our most likely avenue to obtain a player of that caliber anytime soon, given the cards we'll be holding on deadline day and our current international presence. I don't see where it matters a whole lot if we pick #1 or #3 in 2020, but I totally understand why folks are obsessing over next year's draft pick.
  10. Exactly. Once I saw "three kids," I thought, "He wouldn't want to work for the Orioles."
  11. When does Luke get his job offer from the Orioles? I am serious.
  12. Which is why we shouldn't be in a big hurry to bring up anybody who is expected to be part of the core of that future team.
  13. It really was some play. I've never seen anything like it. It was too wacky to even get upset about.
  14. I much prefer checking out GrayRod's and DL Hall's lines this year to the O's pitchers.
