Heya.

I thought then and I think now the most boss move he could have made was to tie the record then sit out the next game.

Would have done even more for his legacy.

 

I know Mr Gehrig only stopped playing due to the illness that eventually claimed his life so it seems fitting for me to tie, not break the record.

Sorry if there is already a thread elsewhere ...... I just wanted to stop in and say that I can't believe it's been 25 years !!! Hope y'all are well.

I had a cross-country race at Waveny Park in New Canaan, CT that evening, so I had my girlfriend tape the game. 

I got home about 10 minutes before he hit the home run into the left-field stands.

I had to work both 2130 and 2131 until 9pm.   No dvr or taping but drove to my girlfriends to watch the game(s).    Don’t want to mention what speeds my Chevy chevette made it too trying to get there.    I have rewatched both so often I honestly have no idea at point in the games I arrived.  But even with all that it was amazing to see.

I was a college baseball player and drove five hours each way for it.  Best decision I ever made.

Hey buddy! I get the sentiment but as Mr. Gehrig is a Yankee and Cal is an Oriole I am cool with how it unfolded! It also helps that Cal went a fair bit past this point, which makes it a pretty strong case it's rightfully his title. Also, Cal had to endure longer seasons, which I consider to be a feather in his cap (albeit with better trainers and conditioning available to him).

We went to 2130 and watched 2131 live (and recorded it). I was a junior in HS at Annapolis. My brother and I watched the taped game probably a dozen times over the next two years! It was awesome.

Same boat -- watched that taped game many many times (even brought it to college with me).

    • Watt playing is brutal. Give Murray's carries to McCrary. He has to be better by default.
    • So, league average wOBA last year was .315.  I’ve taken the lineup from the OP and added the Steamer projected wOBA for each player. 1. Mullins CF L .331 2. Hays LF R .326 3. AR     C  S .339 4. Mountcastle 1B  R .337 5. Mancini        DH  R .336 6. Santander    RF  S .323 7. Urias             2B  R .317 8. Odor            3B   L .299 9. Mateo          SS  R .283 That doesn’t look too bad at all.   The problem of course is that these 9 players won’t get all the at bats.   But at least when our regular lineup is on the field, we really only have two below average offensive players.   
    • I would have thought so, but your post suggested that you felt OBP was a better measure than OPS.
    • But as a GM they don't just pray for the best.  They evaluate the risk.
    • Lol…you realize that I’m aware of this, right?
    • Yea, I think you are one of those delusional MD fans to be honest.  The program just isn’t what it was.  I think you saying it’s definitively better than jobs I listed, when those schools are winning more and out recruiting them, is hilarious.   Again, it’s not a bad job..it’s still an excellent job.  But it’s not among the top 20ish job anymore…it’s lost luster.     It’s like UCONN…UConn was amongst some of the best jobs and now it’s not.  
    • Yes, this is a thread about hitting, and yes, I'm sure others have noted this, but when commenting about our anticipated SP success or failure, it seems most are not considering the impact AR will have.  Setting aside his above-average framing skills, I can absolutely foresee him helping raise the level of each and every pitcher with whom he teams up.   I'm quite sure we saw this impact when Wieters would catch for Tillman.  I really believe Tillman's success depended heavily on MW being there to guide him through jams and particularly to get him through outings when he didn't have his best stuff.  There are limits, of course, but I can't wait to see how much influence Rutschman's presence has on whatever staff we have in place.
