    Doug Brocail is the Pitching Coach

    and a previous senators fan, so winning was not something I felt, unless it was football.

    My problem is, 96 was personal for me. I stood in line for 3 hours for playoff tickets, and got them and was at that ALCS game, and they was winning for most of the game, Mussina was pitching a gem of a game. That was a hard loss to take. Chuck Thompson was only 15 feet away in the next seat of bleachers with his wife and you could see the disappointment in his eyes when Zeile screwed up.

    DIdnt Myers tell a reporter, he would have stayed around, if Davey had been kept? I know hard to say what would or could have happen.

    Keep in mind, many of the veterans, while liking Ray, was really pissed at Ownership for running Davey out of town. If Davey had stayed, I venture to say, 98 and 99 would have ended up differently. IMO

    The Pen was decent and good enough to get into the ALCS, but the pen was spent by like game 5 or whatever it was that Mussina was spent and Davy couldnt use Myers who needed a night off and was spent. Zeile ended up throwing the ball into the ground. 96 hurt, I really thought they had what it took to win the whole thing, good team and great manager, but it wasnt meant to be.

    He was a better pitching coach, then he was a manager. 96 team had very good starting pitching and very good defense, but had a weaker pen and it cost them a trip to the world series.

    If he clears, then minor league deal with ST invite, and throw him out there and see what happens, low risk.

    Bad attempt at a joke. Technically, I own a Wii, but only the grandkids take advantage of it.

    Nice car, my daughter had a 2003, non supercharged one. I hit 120 a few times with my Monte Carlo SS, back in my younger days. These days, with the po-po, anything over 15 MPH can become wreckless driver and stiff points and fines. So even with my lead foot, i try not to hit 95, but I can't say, I haven't

    Fanfest 2019 update.

    I doubt Manny or Schoop will show up and end up missing yet another fan fest.

    Who is Mr. Oriole to you?

    It usually as to do with your age and what ERA you got hooked on baseball. Im old as dirt, so it should be Brooks, but I wasn't an Oriole fan until they drafted the local boy, Cal Jr, and something clicked and I couldn't get enough of the Orioles and they soon became and still are my favorite baseball team, bar none. Haven't rooted for Cal his entire career, for me personally, its Cal, hands down. But, I totally get those that want Mr. Oriole to be Brooks.

    Anyone Following Manny?

    Some of us are still here. I think some fans believe its easier to miss Manny, if they invent reasons to hate him. Then again, for a Oriole Legend, he never got the fan love that Cal, Brooks or Frank had here.

    Anyone Following Manny?

    I think you are right. And I think now that you mentioned it, i think he said something about how he felt it was easier to find a replacement 3rd, then a replacement SS. Either way, it was never a demand on Manny's part, and yet, it comes up all the time in OH.

    The lack of hustle complaints, is a lot of deja vu for myself as Eddie Murray was often criticized for such, and that was even before the days of the keyboard haters of the internet. I strongly disagree, Buck and DD was clear, once JJ was gone, he asked about the availability to move back to what he felt like his nature position. It was never ever a demand.
