  1. Thanks for the optimism. My general feeling after an ugly loss is that I'll feel A LOT better if they win the next game. Then I can put it behind me. But if last night's game starts a losing streak, it irritates me to no end.
  2. If it's a pitcher, the Orioles will be going with a 6 man pen. Don't see that happening. They've been delaying this decision for a month now, but it's time to cut bait with one of Rickard, Mancini (to AAA) or Gentry (DFA) or, gasp, Kim (trade/DFA).
  3. Gotta say I'm pretty confused by this: First of all, I didn't think it was the Sandoval slide that caused Schoop's injury. And secondly, Ubaldo got ejected from a game in that series for throwing at Sandoval's shoulder...
  4. Just because Buck made a selection, does not mean it was an obvious selection. As evidenced by the poll results. Anyway, glad this could help kill time between game 1 and 2.
  5. Remember last Friday when you were talking about a 90 percent chance of Opening Day being rained out? Did we ever consolidate a bet on that one? If not, can you ban yourself anyway?
  6. Assuming Rickard gets the other corner and likely leads off.
  7. not exactly a strikeout machine.
  8. My guess is an outfielder.
  9. Honest question: Do you think Buck/Dan are adjusting the roster based on the results of a single spring training game? I personally hope not.
  10. Assuming (for now) the base lineup includes Kim/Smith in OF and Trumbo DH, and that Joseph and Flaherty are penciled in, who are your other two bench players? Rickard, Mancini, Rule 5 OFs, and Free agents to choose from. You can still add someone like Pagan, and I'd support that, but it almost assuredly sends Rickard to AAA. Which I doubt Buck wants to do. Mancini seems destined for AAA given Trumbo news. If one of the Rule 5s shows anything, I bet Buck keeps that player & either Rickard/FA.
  11. Multiple reports saying less than $40 mil. Makes him an interesting trade chip if nothing else.
  12. Issue must be that too many Orioles right handers can't mash lefties.
  13. Low to mid 4 ERA guy in AL East seems pretty valuable, no?
  14. Curious to see terms; pleased it's not 3 years.
  15. Cool, cool.
