    Machado Trade Expectations

    Welcome, and thanks for the insights. Do you think there's any chance the Brewers would give us Hiura since we so grossly overpaid for Gerardo Parra a few years back? No? Well, anyway.

    They could call it Bucked and F...never mind.

    The Oriole Killer Hall of Fame

    Oh, wait, scratch that. Totally forgot about the suspension.

    The Oriole Killer Hall of Fame

    How has Robinson Canó not been mentioned? In 180 career games, he has demolished us to the tune of .328/.378/.527/.904 with 29 HR and 111 RBI. We’re a big part of why he’s going to be in the Hall someday.

    Os requesting offers on Machado

    Bobby Bonilla and David Wells, if memory serves. Perhaps others.

    vs. YANKEES, 9/14

    Santander looks utterly clueless to me.

    vs. MARINERS, 8/29

    Game score of 100! Wow!

    Dylan Bundy 2017

    Maybe even 7 IP/0 R if Manny had managed to pull in Powell's soft liner in the sixth.

    vs. WHITE SOX, 5/07

    Ervin Santana showing what a fluke he is. 6–4, Boston.

    vs. WHITE SOX, 5/07

    Very true. He did hit twenty—in his entire career! http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/b/belanma01.shtml

    They All Break

    What a shame. He and Bryan Mitchell are pretty much the only two pitchers we can hit.

    I didnt see the game last night..but Id like to ask you

    I only want to point out that what Sale didn't get tossed for (intentionally throwing a 98 MPH fastball at a batter) and what Gausman did get tossed for (unintentionally hitting a batter in the fat of his ass with a 77 MPH curveball) are not in any way the exact same thing. That said, I share your bewilderment.

    2016 World Series (Indians vs. Cubs)

    I haven't actually watched much of this series, but every time I tune in, the announcers are slobbering all over David Ross. Like...why? I just don't get it.
