  1. Seriously hoping it is with the Brewers and features Hiura on the return.

    Baseball's Worst Fans (O's 25th - That's Pretty Good)

    I live in LA. It has been 10 years since I have been to a game. The last one I attended more than 10 fights broke out in the 8 innings I was there. In the parking lot were several more (mind you that has to be the worst parking lot in all of MLB. Easily over an hour to get out if you leave after the game). My brother remains a big Dodgers fan and the Orioles finally play them in LA this year around 4th of July. Honestly the fans have me not wanting to go. If I can't wear my jersey and hat, why bother going?

    Buck: Kang Was Slow in Spring Training Too

    I have noticed watching his at-bats the last few games Kim seems more focused on trying to hit the ball the other way. With the early shifts on him, that makes total sense. I'm willing to treat Kim's spring hitting no different than the first couple weeks a pitcher has trying to get his timing and mix in a pitch he is getting more familiar with. Once April rolls around, I'll still have a long leash on the hits, but I wanna see some nice walks.

    Fowler Signs With Cubs.

    Does anyone know if any of our guys are represented by Excel, or more importantly by Casey Close? And yah, Fowler being quoted after the announcement as saying "Catfish" pretty much torpedoes this Casey's statement.

    Fowler Signs With Cubs.

    Though initially upset, I decided to pull back and watch this play out because there will be LOTS more reporting on this as the week finishes out, i'm sure. The "catfish" comment from Fowler is not sitting right with me but it is one thing "catfishing" a GM. It is an entirely different ballgame if he did it to AJ. Does AJ strike you as the guy who would laugh this off saying "You got me there! Nice one!" Not me. I'm waiting on Jonesy's reaction. Mine will likely mirror his sentiment.

    Calling for Rain all day Friday.

    Gahhhhh.....My wife gave the green light to book a red eye from L.A. Friday night, see the Saturday game, and fly back Sunday morning....then I decide to quickly check the weather. While i know Saturday should be okay, i can't take the chance booking $2k plans on a short window. Why must the baseball gods not allow me to finally watch my O's in the playoffs?
  7. What pitching? about 2/3 of our schedule left appears to be against the East. The Bluejays are decent not intimidating. Otherwise we face a Yankee club with no Tanaka or Sabathia, a Rays club with no Price, and a Sox club with no Lester or Lackey. Yah there are some good young pitchers on there but young often equals gassed in September. I for one have more hope this year than I ever did in 2012 or 2013.
  8. according to an updated post on MLBtraderumors.com, it could take weeks or months for the names to be released and "it appears at least a few 'fairly significant' but not ?major? names could be linked to PEDs." I think this works out well for MLB to avoid suspensions during a tough pennant race. If names are not out until September it is doubtful MLB will have mustered enough to hand down suspensions before the playoffs are done. The inference on the names would also take guys like Pujols out, and maybe Bautista or Ortiz, depending on the interpretation of "major".

    Gary Thorne Quotables Thread

    Try making it through 10 minutes of the California Angels coma-inducing broadcast...Gary Thorne is a solid broadcaster/play by play guy. He is no Scully but who is? And for those who can't stand him, i have not heard any suggestions for legitimate replacements. I have a harder time with the color guys when Palmer isnt there.
  11. I also think this is one of those situations where what the players say and how they feel don't necessary mesh. Speaking out against other players, retired or active is not looked upon well.

    vs. RAYS, 4/04

    Davis needs to get his tree trunk ready for another big swing. Michael Morse is trying to show him up in Seattle by hitting #4.

    Vegas over under for Orioles wins 76.5

    Over/unders are usually even odds bets only taking into account the (usually) 10% juice. So $100 to win $90

    Vegas over under for Orioles wins 76.5

    The Marlins say hello.... As for the over/under I will be in Vegas on 3/31 and would look forward to slapping money down...unfortunately last year turned me superstitious for the first time in my life since last year was the first time i did not bet on the O's on my yearly Vegas trip and they miraculously made the playoffs. So for when they are playing again in October again this year....you are welcome
