    Superstars that come out of nowhere (sort of)

    More important questions are why can’t our system develope players or are we making poor draft decisions?

    The Chris Davis Adderal Exemptions

    The Baltimore Sun article is from 2015. Could there have been a change?
  3. Is Chris Davis still receiving exemptions from MLB to use Adderal? Could not getting the exemptions be the reason he’s become totally inept as a player?
  4. I have spent some of the morning watching Parra's defensive highlights. We probably wont sign a top free agent or three. Why not make an effort to sign this guy? He has an awesome arm.

    Manny owes his team, his fans, baseball an apology

    His behavior of late may be coming from the pressure that a competitor puts on himself when things just aren't going right, especially after coming off a good year and the self expectations that success brings. The injury did not allow him to have a normal off season routine and it's taken a toll on his results, so despite there being justification for a slow start, you can bet it's taking a mental toll.
  6. Seems like we've done OK without Weiters. The loss last night was a team effort, scoring one run with 6 hits but that no good SOB, Clevenger, had 3 of them!

    Davis likely to DL tomorrow

    Now we know the reason for his lack of power.

    The Pineda ejection and why its no laughing matter..

    Girardi and the rest of the team had to know just from the reason that are in the same dugout and on the field with him. It's ridiculous to think that the team did not know. One also has to wonder why the umpires didn't see it before John Farrell came out because it seemed so obvious that there was something on Pineda's neck. Maybe it just goes to show that it's well known that a lot of pitchers do use foreign substances and no one was going to take a stand unless they were forced to do so.

    Nationals fans angry about Orioles

    I will always be a O's fan, but that doesn't mean that I wouldn't go to a Nat's game. The reason I have not is because I know that traffic and parking in that area is a bear, but if I can figure that problem out I'd love to go. My only negative thoughts toward DC teams is that when the Colts left town I could never bring myself to support the Redskins because of the old rivalry that seemed to exist before the Colts left. Radio, news personalities and especially politicians, seem to like to drum up hatred. Turn one group against another. It's very common these days.

    When will Manny be back????

    I have had ACL surgery and I can tell you that I had more problems with the mental issues. I always had in the back of my mind that it was going to blow out again. He will be ready when he feels comfortable with it.

    Fred Manfra's a Lousy Announcer Thread

    Fred Manfra is easy to listen to. Some of the other teams use announcers without personality and sound down right monotonous. We are lucky to have him.

    Why did McNally retire so young?

    I remember that back in those days, shoulder problems were career threatening and Tommy John surgery wasn't done for the first time until 1974. Sports medicine has come a long way.

    Why did McNally retire so young?

    You can bet that very little of this was made known at the time. Very insightful!
  14. He last played at the age of 32 for the Expos, which was a great trade for Baltimore, netting Singleton and Mike Torres in return. The year with the Expos (1975) was a down one for him, appearing in only 12 games, winning just 3 and a sky high (for him) 5.24 E.R.A. In 1974, his last year with the O's he won 16 games, started 39 and completed 13, finishing with a 3.58 E.R.A. '75 was also the year of his involvement in repealing the reserve clause that opened up free agency. Does anyone know why he left baseball so early? I couldn't find any mention of an injury.
  15. I wonder how many pitches out of the strikezone resulted in hits?
