Friday nights at the horror show

Recommended Posts

It is clear that the O's can't win on Friday because Dave Trembley rests his starters and plays his backup catcher, every Sunday. I mean Friday.

 

Sorry, 2008 discussion flashback.

You are correct sir! The cartoon bird hat is the ONLY hat that has ever been worn in our World Series titles...lets stay with that..and stay away from any other logo..

Was the bird on the cap in the 1950's? I sure can't remember.

I like it, wore a hat of this style for awhile.  Got a bunch of comments.

That's a nice cap. Thanks Can.

A couple years ago, we couldn't win on Sunday or day games. Now it's Fridays?

You'd almost think it was statistically random and one year many of  your bad games fall on one day and another year more of them happen to fall on another day.

Yeah, I never got onboard with that "O's" cap. I did see one for $5 and a Natty Boh shirt for another $5 outside OPACY years ago and I snapped them up just to say I had one. Was one of those very cheap imports. I use it when I jog. It's now brown. Almost like a St. Louis Browns cap now.

    • They need Trey at 1B. That is his future. Ditch one of Trumbo or Davis. Hopefully both. 
    • Yeah like I said in another thread people who are complaining about Davis are also saying sign Manny to a 400 million dollar contract. Like that wouldn't end badly.  
    • Excellent article by Ed and Peter that verified a lot of what was in my piece but also clarified Lou's role in baseball operations. That was something I wasn't clear about. What this tells us though is several things: - The Orioles are still run by Peter Angelos even if his sons are taking more responsibility and that ownership is still making final baseball decisions.
      - Ownership veteoed deals for Britton and Machado that baseball people liked and thought would help rebuild the team.
      - Lou was in charge of the baseball operations budgeting this off season and perhaps longer, including international scouting. So the fact that they didn't spend much at all in international budgeting would suggest he won't change the poor policy of not spending internationally much in the future.
      - Duquette acts as the GM, but only to bring deals to ownership who then makes final decisions (2hich could include Brady with influence)
      - Like in my piece, Brady wants to be President but doesn't want to do the dirty work of being a GM. He likes to do what he wants when he wants.
        Basically, all things point to this team continually being run like it's been run. No clear hierarchy, multiple people having influences, and the Angelos' running things as they always have. In other words, more of the same.
    • Don't feel like reading the article. Is it much different than Tony's?
    • And you get a deeply flawed roster when you have 3 or more people building on their own without a plan.  Buck may not deserve all of that blame...but he damn sure gets some. This is correct, the systemic issue IS the problem, but Buck has more than a little bit of that blame and not just for last night. Sadly, every word of this is pretty spot on.  The magic is gone. It's piling on, but yep.
    • Sisco's walk rate is at 7.5%.  That's just about average, isn't it? I'm a bit disappointed by his bat thus far, but he's had an adjustment period at just about every level he's been at.  Unfortunately he's been given inconsistent playing time as Buck absolutely refuses to start him against lefties (because our right handed catchers have been doing so awesome) and we've had several steady streams of lefties.  Gary Thorne mentioned last night that Chance never could have imagined he'd see so much playing time and I almost fell of my chair.  He's on pace to start 71 games, though that number will go up as we face more right handers. With all of that said, as Frobby said, I expect he'll adjust.  But he needs ABs to do so.
