  1. 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...
  2. Put him on the 10 IL with a hangnail, then a rehab with whichever affiliate is playing close to home?
  3. 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.
  4. Three triples, plus Alberto’s glove work equaled a very exciting game!
  5. While playing for the Astros, Villar once stole home versus the O's!
  6. 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!
  7. Dallas Keuchel, when he signs a back-loaded five year deal with the Orioles next week.
  8. I also watched that game. I liked that Willie compared one of the Yankees’ MiL infielders to Mark Belanger.
  9. I know I lasted through the Rivals.com era!
  10. “Never fear y’all, I got alcohol!”
  11. 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!
  12. 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!
  13. 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!
  15. Feel bad for Nats fans, getting to see him 19 times a season. So glad Manny signed as far away as possible.
  16. I guess she was good. I forgot all about her. Still think the whole idea is silly.
  17. Around $55,000.00 per year, on average, for a full-time broadcaster. https://work.chron.com/baseball-announcer-salaries-30181.html
  18. 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.
  19. I thought the OP was declaring that the Rays had fired their manager two weeks before spring training!
  20. I’m not the best researcher, but i can't seem to find the length of contract for Mike Elias. Do we know how long the commitment lasts? Thanks!
  21. I met my wife in 1989 when we were both working in the Ad Services department of the Capitol-Gazette Newspaper offices in Annapolis. The paper is forever a part of us. Sorry you missed your chance at professional baseball, but like everyone else around here, I'm sure glad that there's an Orioles Hangout, which I discovered when I got my first home computer in 1998. Let's Go O's!
  22. I blame Mike Elias for this! 😂
  23. NPB is posting Yusei Kikuchi. Left handed starter who is only 28-years old. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2018/11/seibu-lions-to-post-yusei-kikuchi-in-early-december.html Would a five-year contract work for a rebuilding team?
  24. The O’s have seven, the Astos have seven. The Yankees have nine. Is more better? Especially the fact that the extra two are at the lowest levels? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_New_York_Yankees_minor_league_affiliates
