  1. What are you listening to right now?

    A couple months ago, a friend of mine passed away at age 56. I had worked with him for nearly 25 years. He was the singer for a couple metal bands that did relatively well (Sanctuary and Nevermore). This is a track from his only solo album, an almost painfully autobiographic song from a guy that was normally extremely private.
  2. Orioles to offer free UD seats ALL season to kids

    I love this move. This sport needs more young fans. This team needs more fans (especially those cheering for the home team). And a lot of young kids in the city could use an offer like this. Well done, front office.
  3. Songs with Baltimore in them

    There’s also this early Tori Amos song, back from 1980 when she was just Ellen Amos. She entered and won a song contest held by the city, and she wrote it for the Orioles. A copy of this 7” single is worth over $1,000 now. https://youtu.be/FzFvrL_5TUs
  4. What are you listening to right now?

    Really like this band and that debut album. Got to see them live ladt year and it was a captivating show. I expected the hymnal parts to be sequenced but they did them all live.
  5. MLB The Show 18

    The new edition launches on March 27th. I had bought the last four years' worth (and bought a PS4 back in 2013 solely for the sake of this game) but it wasn't until 2017 that I really started to get into it. Maybe because watching the Orioles was more frustrating than fun, I don't know. But the Diamond Dynasty mode was very well designed and I wound up spending a lot of time on the game. Online gameplay had some serious issues and there were some other problems (particularly with tagging animations, base running and catcher animations) but it seems they worked hard to address many of those issues. And the offline gameplay was still the best baseball video game experience I've played -- and I must have played at least different 50 baseball videogames by now. Plus it's an incredibly hard game to learn, it's nearly impossible to master the game but that keeps it continually challenging. I'm really looking forward to this one. Some of the playable / unlockable legends confirmed for this year's edition include Babe Ruth, Frank Thomas, Mike Piazza, Albert Belle, Larry Doby, Vladimir Guerrero and Don Sutton, along with some of the classic players from before (Ripken, Griffey Jr., Ryan, Boggs, Schmidt, Sandberg, Ted Williams, Schmidt, Robbie Alomar etc.). If there are any fellow players out there, you can add/message me, my PS4 tag is: asocial_grace
  6. a/k/a why it’s never a good idea for me to post while talking to the missus.
  7. If that was true, then I’d be tired of Thorne and Palmer. And Jon Miller. But I’m not.
  8. Boras Speak

    I would rather have Pedro at DH against RHP than Trumbo.
  9. Get the Net

    When I go to games, I love great seats, but I always make sure I wasn’t close enough to home plate that I would have to watch through netting. It always made me feel a half-step removed from the action. Sure, I understand the rationale. I don’t want fans hurt either. But can’t they at least come up with some nearly invisible super-filament that doesn’t make you feel like you’re watching the game through a chain-link fence?
  10. Imagine Peter Angelos doing this

    On the other hand, imagine what would happen if he showed up and was completely honest in the Q&A? ”For starting pitching, we’re talking to Tillman. And we’d love to have Cobb or Darvish here on a 1-year deal in the range of $10M to $12M. Pending physicals.” ”We’re not looking at many offensive upgrades at this time. We already have the leading home run hitters from 2013, 2015 and 2016 at first base and right field. No other team can say that.”
  11. Baseball Prospectus: Lo Cain

    It is, sure... but isn’t that literally all we have to go on this off-season?
  12. SP Openings Across MLB

    I think you’re right — on both points. Tillman will most likely be back. And his arm is toast. Burnt toast.
  13. Anyone On Here With Close Connections To Ownership?

    Except they would all only be available for day games, nothing under the lights.
  14. Is Davis Done?

    No matter how disappointing Davis has been the last two years, I never thought it was from a lack of effort, or caring. I think he cared too much, honestly. That guy is never going to just phone it in for a paycheck.
