  1. 2018 A - Delmarva Shorebirds

    An amazing stat from last nights game. The three Shorebird pitchers made only 100 pitches in their combined nine innings. With a efficient 83 strikes, no walks, and 10 strike outs.
  2. Why you are feeling so down about the Orioles

    Normally I try to keep my posts somewhat positive. Lately though I see some things that in my opinion are negatively affecting the Orioles performance. First, Chris Davis looks like a lost ball in the high weeds. His bat speed is missing as well as his ability to even make contact with even mediocre pitches. Second, Chris Tillman, even though he has never had a lot of FB velocity, has even less pitch speed,and shows no command. Third, while I have been a big Buck supporter and consider him to be among the best managers, being loyal to past performance should only go so far. I have been a big fan of the two Chris's for years but it is time to admit they have lost "it". The ugly elephant in the room is obviously Davis's contract, and where do you hide someone whom you are obligated to pay that much money.Tillman is much easier, just release him. The way he is pitching right now he could not get out minor league hitters. Maybe he can sign with an independant league team and get himself straightened out. after all he is still relatively young. In Chris Davis' case we are stuck with him.
  3. Twins Upset with Sisco Bunting

    If the Twins did a shift with a no hitter they would get what they deserved.
  4. Cobb to Orioles (Confirmed by Roch Kubatko)

    I don't know who this Sherman is but seemed like a negative comment to me that may have been made by someone from another team's following.

    Sounds like sour grapes to me!
  6. Cobb to Orioles (Confirmed by Roch Kubatko)

    It does make me feel better about the season.
  7. Alex Presley - Mil Deal

    This is a good signing. A veteran player to bring up from Norfolk when the need arises. I didn't say If the need arises. Over a 162 game schedule there will be a need for this kind of depth.
  8. What was our record in games Hays started?

    Would a vaccine prevent it. Or would direct contact spread it. LOL
  9. What was our record in games Hays started?

    This goes to prove that it is a team game, made up of individuals. When no one is playing well enough to make up for the ones who aren't, teams lose games. The Orioles experienced a team slump that with a couple of hot hitters might have been turned around. Hitting is contagious, not hitting may be the same
  10. Are you happy spring training is starting?

    I'm very happy. At least we get to see what the Orioles do have, good or otherwise.
  11. Here’s a chart that might surprise you

    This chart does not include any pitchers that were international signings.Just draft picks.

  13. Predict the Starting Rotation

    Gausman..Bundy..three aint no fun days!!!
  14. Drew Hutchison? Ewww...

    I agree with this wholly. This has been the most frustrating off-season I have experienced as a fan.
  15. OS MLBTR 12/27

    Somebody just made a mistake. As I responded to Weems, I was just being sarcastic.
