Sisco starting vs a lefty, that might be his first?   Of course it's probably because Pedro isn't feeling well and Austin Wynns may not have arrived at the ballpark yet.

The bottom four in that lineup -- Sisco vs. a LHer, Wilkerson  batting RHed, Broxton and Martin -- is pretty much  :puke: . Maybe they'll surprise me.

That’s one team I can’t be for.

Good inning. Should have been 4 outs.

Santander should have had the ball?   I was still radio-ing on my way home from work.

That's disappointing, I have been pretty happy with his OF play so far.

    • Good one, thx. He's the one--and of course, also in 1989. Why Not? Not quite a one-hit wonder, but an interesting career. Three years with the White Sox, then out of MLB for five years before the O's picked him up for a flash of decency. In between, was he lobbing softballs then?
    • Oops, good catch. And you're right, it does change the calculus. I forced myself finally to watch *that* game again, especially curious to hear the announcers' reaction to events as they unfolded (or not). Around the sixth or seventh inning Cal Ripken was citing the "conventional" wisdom of saving the closer if you're the road team but using the closer in a late tie game at home. In the ninth with the Jays threatening, Cal wondered if Buck might bring in Britton to solve a tight jam, but O'Day relieved Brach and got out of it. After that neither announcer made a peep about Britton sitting, until the final comment of the postgame, when someone observed, as an afterthought, that Britton was unused. No, wait, the other announcer did mention briefly late in the game that Kimbrell was unused in a key NL playoff game in 2013, but I looked it up and found no comparable situation in the Atlanta losses. I do like to play devil's advocate, and so in theory go with Cal's "conventional" practice as acceptable, despite the bad result in this case. Especially, as another poster pointed out, with Liriano so dominant. But that's on paper. Watching Ubaldo absolutely groove those last 3 meatballs in a row (on 3 consecutive pitches?) was just sickening, and brought back that intuitive sinking feeling that all Oriole fans (except Buck, apparently) knew about Ubaldo from his whole erratic history here--notwithstanding a chimerical September of effectiveness. Just a tease... like Daniel Cabrera, and so many others before him. One final observation, IMO the Orioles lost that game mostly because they failed to take advantage of the Jays' weak bullpen (Cecil, Biagini, Grilli, and Osuna) who gave up like 1 hit in the 7th, 8th, and 9th. Okay, ready to move on...
    • I used to root for the Astros...But they are evil. I also rooted for the Mariners, but they’re pathetic. At the moment I am following baseball in general but I am only emotionally attached to the Orioles. However, as Manfred continues to ruin the game, I am on the verge of losing interest in baseball completely.
    • Hopefully restoring some of the civil liberties that were taken away for all of this.
    • Yea, it wasn't a good time for me, and yes, I'm probably exaggerating a bit.  I certainly wasn't jumping on a scale.  
    • Gaining 7 pounds a week seems pretty extreme.  I have been losing weight as I have just been eating healthy food. I had to put another notch in my belt.
    • It was the Ravens that nixed the deal    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001108156/article/rams-dl-michael-brockers-details-nixed-ravens-deal
