4/6/2012: OPENING DAY - Orioles vs. Twins

Recommended Posts

UGH! Damn DirecTV is blacking out the O's Extra pre game.. unreal! I was so looking forward to catching all the opening day ceremonies, especially Nick & Matt's gold gloves..

I just emailed them but I will probably just get the automatic blackout restrictions response, even though I asked them specifically not to send me that and send me an actual response.

I'm currently on hold with the folks at DirecTV "Customer Retention" to chew someone out over this. They've never done this crap before, why start now.

The best part is the MASN graphic with bottom of the 9th, 2 on, 2 out with the lead. Boy did Nick save Kevin's ass that night. And it only went downhill from there.. lol.

That was the beginning of Nick's GG campaign... and a taste of Gregg's season as an Oriole

One good thing about this delayed start to the season is that we don't get that dreaded "off day" after opening day. Let's hit the ground running this year.

FINALLY! it's on..

They probably only slotted the normal 30 minutes for it by accident. I've had DirecTV for years and this is probably only the 2nd time they've infuriated me.

Here come the O's!

    • o   Diamondbacks starting pitcher Merrill Kelly was originally drafted out of high school by the Orioles, in the 37th round of the 2007 MLB draft. He opted for college instead (Yavapai Community College), and was drafted by the Indians in the 22nd round 2 years later in 2009 ........ but he again opted not to sign to remain in college, this time transferring from Yavapai Community to Arizona State.  One year after that (2010) he was drafted by the D-Rays in the 8th round, this time signing for a $125,000 bonus. After working his way up to the AAA-level in the 2013 and 2014 seasons, he went to play in Korea from 2015 through 2018, and it resurrected his career ........ he wound up signing a 2-year, $5.5 Million deal with the Diamondbacks this past December, and he has clearly asserted himself as a mainstay in their starting rotation.   o

    • Here are the current standings... updated after Monday's (7/22) games: Win % is the key, not Games Back.  The O's have reclaimed the #1 pick, as of now.
    • We made too many mistakes on defense and couldn't cash in some early opportunities.
    • Not blaming them at all. I understand why they moved on from him. Some guys just take a little longer to figure it out. He was also snakebit by having to play in Norfolk too. 
    • o   Former Oriole Jonathan Schoop was part of a Triple Play turned by the Twins defense in their win over the Yankees tonight.           o
