  1. You have to think that Smith running on contact was his own idea, because if it was a sign, you would think Broxton would have done the same.
  2. Shuddah got more out of that inning.
  3. Gregg Olsen on the radio with Kevin Brown. Quite pleasant!
  4. The Heck’s Angels? https://www.si.com/mlb/2019/04/25/baltimore-orioles-camden-yards-trey-mancini
  5. Nothing to do with Cashner (sorry) but I think one thing that the O's can do to make things a little better is to not bat Davis, Mullins and Martin in the same group. Three automatic outs in a row is difficult to watch.
  6. Currently on pace to allow 461 home runs. Ouch!
  7. Hunter and Palmer, noting that the temperature had dropped, and that folks had their jackets on. Camera shows Cobb sitting on the bench behind Cashner. "Well, he is a windbreaker," notes Palmer. 2019 is about the little things...
  8. Put him on the 10 IL with a hangnail, then a rehab with whichever affiliate is playing close to home?
  9. Anyone who followed the Orioles in 1988 should be rooting for Chris Davis at this point. Does anyone remember that the national - and GLOBAL - press followed the team everywhere they traveled back then? It was horrifying. Well, that’s happening to CD now. The British newspaper The Guardian posted a story about him this morning. I pray he gets three hits tonight.
  10. Three triples, plus Alberto’s glove work equaled a very exciting game!
  11. While playing for the Astros, Villar once stole home versus the O's!
  12. Wasn’t watching the game, but quickly looked at gameday after receiving a text from my buddy that the O’s have no-no in the 7th. Then saw that Hess had been pulled. My first thought was “that’s modern baseball for you.” My second thought was, why did my so-called buddy have to ruin the no hitter by bringing it to my attention? Sheesh!
  13. Dallas Keuchel, when he signs a back-loaded five year deal with the Orioles next week.
  14. I also watched that game. I liked that Willie compared one of the Yankees’ MiL infielders to Mark Belanger.
  15. I know I lasted through the Rivals.com era!
  16. It’s not going to be Chris Davis, but I’ve always thought there should be more guys like Brooks Kieschnick in MLB. Someone who on any given day can pitch, PH, DH or play in the field. Talk about roster flexibility! I know Brooks Kieschnick wasn’t a star in MLB, but if you had seen him in college... Whew!
  17. Tony, Drungo, Frobby, Roy, and now Luke. I've been hanging around here since I put a computer in my house in 1998. I don't post that often, because I'm not any sort of analyst, and I have no special baseball knowledge. But I learn an awful lot by reading these boards every day. Every day. Long live the OH! (Like the OH in the national anthem!) Thanks, Tony!
  18. I never won the chance to cook against him, but I'll never root against him. My heart was still hoping against hope that he would still be an Oriole for the next five years, even though my brain tells me that it didn't make sense. Baltimore certainly benefited throughout the tenure of Adam Jones. I wish him the best in all his pursuits!

    He's hitting really well thus far this spring. 1.423 OPS!
  20. Feel bad for Nats fans, getting to see him 19 times a season. So glad Manny signed as far away as possible.
  21. I guess she was good. I forgot all about her. Still think the whole idea is silly.
  22. Around $55,000.00 per year, on average, for a full-time broadcaster. https://work.chron.com/baseball-announcer-salaries-30181.html
  23. I don't like that MASN is adding a "sideline reporter." I think the whole concept is silly, and really liked the fact that MASN never had one.
