  1. You missed Jonathan Schoop homering off Chris Davis (who also got a strikeout while pitching) and you think you made a good decision? You just missed a piece of Orioles history.
  2. Lol Wright. Just amazing he is still a pitcher for this team.
  3. That's fair, I've always valued your levelheadedness and thoughtfulness, and I mean that sincerely. But I'd pay blood to watch your live reaction to that Delmon Young double. I mean I was at work and I started screaming lol.
  4. Aww Bob My goal in life is to see you irrationally exuberant about something. Come on, try looking stupid once in a while, it's actually kind of fun.
  5. This is advanced OH posting. It usually takes thousands of posts and dozens of Fangraphs articles read to get to this level of cynicism. You're this site's number one prospect, basically. Granted, not everyone ends up a Can of Corn. You could be a Moose Milligan, showing those flashes of brilliance but then posting something human that isn't the most depressing thing you've ever read in your entire life. You could be a total bust like Frobby, who is still a complete person despite watching the Orioles for like 40 years. That said, I have a lot of faith that if you work at it, you'll have a long career of making Matt Riley and Omar Daal references. Even at your floor you should be able to reference the time Jack Cust fell down in at least one post per year.
  6. I hope to god this team never signs a long term contract with a player ever again. Baseball's labor model is great for a few rich players and terrible for everyone else, including fans. How does he sleep while stealing this much money? I am not on board with the sympathetic fans, nobody cares about the mental status of the 28 year old AAAA guy that gets waived after a month on the roster and bats .200 and has a fraction of a fraction of Davis' net worth.
  7. He's bad at baseball which is a real problem since the Orioles pay him to play baseball. I feel like if he was bad at baseball but he was an usher this would all be OK.
  8. The thread title is overwrought. We didn't accomplish anything last year. You could just say "Orioles accomplished something" and you'd have a swarm of replies like "damn that's that wayback juice from 2017."
  9. His defense was great tonight. The Titanic had really nice deckchairs. But seriously some clutch picks at 1st.
  10. We have now won 2 road series by our 5th game. Last year's Oriole team won 3 road series.
  11. I think the positives grossly outweigh the negatives, and not for nothing but I think if you are going to go after someone's baseball IQ, you need to be rigorous and not just throw out a couple times he might've been stupid. Pickoffs happen. I don't think he's particularly baseball IQ-less. I'm very pleasantly surprised by how lopsided that trade was.
  12. Honestly everyone should just log off and get some sleep. 💤👩‍🚀
  13. Probably Elias more than Hyde is behind this decision, but I won't pretend I have any insight into how they're managing things. I just assume something like that come from the top. In any case, Elias was hired for a certain approach and expertise, which I think is what we're seeing here, and he should be judged over a few years of making thousands of decisions, and not just pulling Hess. It still triggers my Mother's Day Massacre PTSD.
