OFFNY

vs. ROYALS, 10/15 (A.L.C.S., Game Four)

Recommended Posts

Four leadoff walks in the game, and our inept offense can't score one of them.

What the hell was Cruz doing in the ninth?

Oh, well, our big guns all shot blanks. Really sad.

I can't believe this crap. If you told me we were going to be swept after we swept the Tigers I would have laughed in your god damn face. This is just as big of a let down as Billy Cundiff missing that kick. This is a freaking kick straight to the nuts. Never seen anything like it.

This is a much bigger letdown.

Sometimes, the baseball Gods go against you. Great year fo the Orioles overall. Of course it's disappointing to end this way, but they just ran into a white hot team in the Royals.

I don't know about you guys, but when my team loses, I hold a grudge--for a long time. Thus I hope the Royals get the crap kicked out of them in the World Series. None of this "Since we didn't win, I hope you guys do" crap. It ticked me off that so many people were behind K.C. because they haven't won it in a long time. Hello, they've won it more recently than we did!

Yep this is on par with the Evans dropped pass/Cundiff missed fg.

I was indifferent about the Royals, and only associated them with hemorrhoids and pine tar. Now I will hate them. Hate them.

I am actively rooting against them in the WS. Not because they beat us, but because I feel they have lacked class and I find much of their team unlikeable. Just hope it's the Giants now

That's the main reason I can't stand them now.

Like I said earlier, the Royals are now on my permanent S-list.

This is the biggest sports disappointment of my lifetime that I can clearly remember (Super Bowl XVIII, while in my lifetime, is a bit hazy). I felt uneasy before the series began, and once they didn't bounce back in Game 2, I figured that was it, but I wanted to be wrong. Not even one MF-ing win. A bed-crapping for the ages. Simply ridiculous.

This tops '96 and '97 by far. I want nothing but pain for Kansas City and all their fans, and I want it never to end. I want them henceforth consigned to baseball hell, with no hope for returning.

    • Per Melewski: https://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2021/01/basallo-and-hernandez-head-up-os-international-class.html "The Orioles today announced a signing class of 17 international amateurs, including the club’s first two players signed for seven figures. Per industry sources, the club has contract agreements with catcher Samuel Basallo from the Dominican Republic for $1.3 million and with Venezuelan shortstop Maikol Hernández for $1.2 million. The Orioles announced that 11 more from this group are six-figure agreements. Of the 17 agreements, 13 are from the Dominican Republic and four are from Venezuela   Catcher Samuel Basallo, L/R, 16, Dominican Republic Basallo, once linked to the New York Yankees, got the largest signing bonus ever given to an international amateur by the Orioles. Basallo, who turned 16 on Aug. 13, has plus arm strength and some solid raw power. Some scouts have put a 60 grade on his arm. At 6-foot-3 and 198 lbs., it’s possible he could outgrow the catcher position. Shortstop Maikol Hernández, R/R, 17, Venezuela At 6-foot-4 and 175 lbs., Hernández has several impressive tools with a strong arm and power. He’s drawn some comparisons to bigger shortstops at young ages like Carlos Correa and Manny Machado. He was previously linked to St. Louis and Pittsburgh. Six players, per industry sources, signed with the Orioles for bonuses between $300,000 and $400,000. Here is that group: Outfielder Wilmer Feliciano, L/R, 16, Dominican Republic He is a lefty batter with some solid raw power and it is believed got the third-highest bonus among this group. Shortstop Victor Celedonio, S/R, 17, Dominican Republic A switch-hitter, it is believed he got the fourth-highest signing bonus in this class. Outfielder Teudis Cortorreal, L/L, 17, Dominican Republic A lefty batter who is a center field prospect. Shortstop Eruviel Castillo, R/R, 17 Dominican Republic Shortstop Anderson De Los Santos, R/R, 17, Dominican Republic Catcher Yasmil Bucce, L/R, 16, Venezuela The following players signed six-figure bonuses, believed to range between $100,000 and $225,000. Catcher Aneudis Mordán, R/R, 16, Dominican Republic Shortstop Angel Tejada, R/R, 16, Dominican Republic Center fielder Junior Lara, L/L, 16, Dominican Republic Left-hander Deivy Cruz, L/L, 16, Dominican Republic Center fielder Ángel Peña, L/R, 16, Dominican Republic These four signings round out this class. Outfielder Héctor Jiménez, R/R, 16, Dominican Republic Left-hander Elvis Polanco, L/L, 17, Dominican Republic Catcher Carlos Rodríguez, R/R, 17, Venezuela Outfielder Grabiel Salazar, R/R, 19, Venezuela"
    • Man, I thought that was it, winning teams again for the foreseeable future.  Many more free agent contracts, with all the stars coming to play in orange and black.  A couple playoff runs, a few world series, wow it is incredible how naive I was back then and how little understanding of exactly how awful our pitching was.   I am very excited for the future now however and really enjoy watching this rebuild process, even as slow and boring it is and this winter is, but I agree with the OP, this off season has been incredibly boring!
    • Fair, I did see Darvish and Kim (not Snell).  And the LeMathiu signing recently as well. Even still that is basically just one busy team among 30.  It is something , so I won't argue that, just saying it's mostly quiet/boring even for many teams that aren't is the "$1 million and south" club.
    • There is sometimes much to critique, but here is an instance where I think Good job, MLB is in order.    This cohort isn't playing high school seasons or anything like that, and the big stuff gets settled far in advance. This is a nice improvement in the league calendar.
    • Yeah. I don’t think Mazzilli was a good fit here either. 
    • They probably should have judging by their Pythagorean record in 2004.  Pythagorean W-L:82-80, 842 Runs, 830 Runs Allowed
    • I hope it doesn't come to this, but Good Play + Punting 2022 + Astro Pariah Theory (for any player who can pick their employer) makes Houston a first-tier landing spot if Dusty can keep them in it.   Either faking a corner, or if Yordan knees still bad. I more like the one where Bregman, Correa and Altuve are our infield in 18 months - who needs "thoroughbreds" then?
