  1. We should move to the NL East

    This argument comes up Every time they don't play well. It's not happening, nor should it.
  2. O's dodge a bullet and stay in it

    I stand beside what I said earlier. This team has been "off" all year.
  3. vs. YANKEES, 9/15

    I can't understand why you wouldn't leave a potential starter for next season in during a meaningless game.
  4. Are we a bad team masquerading as a mediocre one?

    I was looking at the runs per game totals because I feel like the offense has had a lot of games where they put up inflated numbers, which kind of skews the offensive ranking. They have had 41 games where they have scored 7+ runs. That's pretty good. They have had 46 games where they have scored 2 or less. So, I think I was wrong as the higher scoring games and lower scoring games kind of balance out. They have been shut out a total 8 times...I think this is just a bad team. I'm not sure that bringing in w mediocre starters will greatly improve the chances next year either. Having Buck and DD's contracts end after next season has really put this team in a bind. I'm starting to come around to the idea that they have to be settled before any other moves can happen.
  5. Connolly: Just swing the damn bat Davis!

    Nobody signed Trumbo this past off season when they had the chance. I can't see a team trading any assets for him and taking his salary. He's pretty much the player this year that he always was. Last season was the outlier.
  6. O's dodge a bullet and stay in it

    Losing is one thing, but they really seem as disconnected as a team as we have seen in a while. I don't want to go as far as to say they are mailing it in but something has changed with this team as the season has gone on. Maybenxtyr...
  7. Ongoing Lineup Thread, 2017

    Sorry about that. I didn't catch it on my phone. Apparently "Hayes" is a more popular name than Hays.
  8. TT: Is this really the worst season of your fandom?

    The only reason it falls into the worst category for me is because it is the most recent. I know that sounds funny, but in a few years the short comings of this year will be forgotten either because of future success or failures. I don't think they we we're as good as their start when they got the jump on some struggling teams. They destroyed Wright from Boston like twice in a week in a half period. Toronto was way worse than they are even now. I could go on. Having Davis locked up makes this look especially bad. He isn't going anywhere, and watching him shows me no reason to be expectant of a bounce back next year.
  9. Ongoing Lineup Thread, 2017

    Buck has not accepted the fact that the WC chance has passed by. I have no interest in seeing Rickard over Hayes at the moment.
  10. So what's the rotation next year?

    I still believe Miley could be retained at a cheaper rate.
  11. Magically Mediocre: your 2017 Baltimore Orioles

    The hardest part for me to digest about this team is the fact that they have had 2 top 10 MVP seasons and a top 2 or 3 ROY campaign just to be hovering around.500. There really isn't a lot to look forward to for next season at this point. I can't imagine Angelos will let DD spend on enough pitching to hide the massive holes in the offense and defense. Even the BP has been just good rather than great. Some of this is frustration speaking but I am concerned about the future of the team.
  12. vs. BLUE JAYS, 9/11

    The most depressing part about this season is that most of the 1-9 Will be back next year.
  13. vs. BLUE JAYS, 9/11

    For a spot on the bench. May as well play Hayes.
  14. vs. YANKEES, 9/07

    He looks like he has opened his stance back up.
  15. Will you be pleased with this season if...

    That would be at least a $50 million commitment per year. Then you start adding in the other salaries and it becomes hard to see how they an field a competitive team. I hope they sign them but I'm skeptical of it getting done.
