  1. Tickets will be easier to get? Fanfest will be less crowded? You won't have to worry about good promotion days selling out?
  2. Right about the time the announcement was made, Adam Jones said on Twitter, " Yeaaaaaa some people right now." Followed by "Just decided to back out of fanfest tomorrow. Sorry. Something came up !!!!!!" Then "My last tweet was pure Fake News see y’all tails tomorrow." Sure sounds like a team leader who's unhappy with fellow teammates.
  3. Rosenthal on MLB Network Sunday night predicted us to win because of our superior bullpen.
  4. O's Facebook just announced we acquired Kyle Lobstein from the Pirates for Zach Phillips.
  5. As someone who has a 13-game plan and still goes to a ton of other games, I feel like anyone can find reason for why they don't want to go. But there are counterpoints to every point too. For those talking about how much it "costs" at the game for concessions, is it still not common knowledge that you can bring pretty much any and all food into the park so you don't have to drop a dime on it? I've taken in whole subs from Subway, even Chipotle bowls. Sure, that costs money too, but you get way more for your buck than the $7 hot dog. Also, other than alcohol, which I admittedly don't drink at all, you can bring in multiple bottles of water/soda etc. So if you're concerned about concessions, easy ways to save money there. The official parking lots cost $8-$10 (or heck, even free at the Horseshoe). Again, that's nothing compared to almost every other single stadium I've ever been to. Nationals Park has $40 parking. I also think that almost any seat at Oriole Park is fine, so I'm totally fine with buying the cheapest Upper Reserve ticket and having a great time. I don't need to go get the $80 behind home plate stuff. I realize a lot of this is "I" and my own preferences, but there are definitely ways to not drop hundreds of dollars if you plan ahead. So people have their reasons for going or not going. I think we all would love to have a stadium full of orange-and-black rabid, passionate and fun-loving fans at every game they go to. And sure, I get mad too when people throw out tons of excuses that may not be valid to me, but they are to those people. But Oriole Park is a fantastic place to watch a ballgame. I think we can all agree on that. I just wish more people would do it.
  6. The obvious Game 2 2014 ALDS will never be topped. It was so incredible, the ups and downs of that game, and Delmon's double and JJ's slide. Incredible. Was also at last year's Orioles-Phillies game on June 16 where the O's smashed 8 homers for the team record. Also was at PNC a couple years back when Davis hit 3 HR in one game. And many more to count....but those stood out I guess because of their recency.
  7. Heads up to all, the Orioles-Jays game from yesterday will be on MLB Network the morning of March 5 at 9 a.m. I believe it's the Toronto TV feed they're showing.
  8. I also believe the Blue Jays-Phillies and Reds-Indians games are on MLB Network as well.
  9. As an avid watcher of the network, their website is disappointingly hard to peruse. Here's the link to the schedule: http://m.mlb.com/network/shows/?id=mlbn_30clubs_2010 The Orioles are always late into it, and this year we are Saturday March 26 at 7 p.m. The 30 Clubs in 30 Days stuff is actually part of their nightly MLB Tonight show, and not separate.
  10. I do get it. As far as he'll be cheap. But he's not exactly a Chen either. We need a more durable pitcher with history. At least Happ has that.
  11. You mean former Oriole Rich Hill, who had a 3-3 record, 1.87 WHIP and 7.80 ERA for us in 2009? I think we've been there, done that. Sure his last few starts were a surprise, but he came from independent ball. Because no major league team wanted him. Just sayin'
  12. Bob Costas is good in this format. They showed a clip during their All-Star pregame stuff yesterday that was basically Buck being aware that Adam Jones does impressions of him and the way he walks/sits in the dugout. Pretty funny segment.
  13. Cliff is tolerable. He is one of the players that shows up on MLB Network from time to time. He's still young and usually speaks in cliches, but I think Gary being Gary will bring the fun out of him.
  14. Thankfully it's Amsinger, Harold Reynolds, and Plesac now. Much better to listen to. They also don't bash the Os Sent from my XT1080 using Tapatalk
  15. MLB Tonight highlighted Parmelee's HR in the first. The lead anchor talked about the Orioles HR rate lately. THEN Ken Rosenthal played his jerk card, saying basically "ok, so the Orioles hit eight HRs last night. I covered this team in 1987 and they gave up a record they Still own of 10 HRs in a game, so let's get over this eight. " Came out of nowhere and came off jerkish, even for him. I normally love MLB Network, but that was just petty. Sent from my XT1080 using Tapatalk
  16. Gino's for half the season had an amazing Camden Giant, with a crab cake on top of their usual burger. That was fantastic. Then they switched to a crab mac and cheese burger, which was utterly inferior. So I'm intrigued to try the newer options. The biggest missing piece from the last few years is Boardwalk Fries. Man, those were the best.
  17. Yeah, I've never understood the outright hatred of Gary. He gets excited for good baseball, calls things enthusiastically, and has amazing rapport with Palmer and Bordick. And like the other poster said, go listen to about 90 percent of other broadcasters and you'd rather have one of them? Thorne and Palmer are definitely the best duo in baseball.
  18. I'll emerge from the shadows to say I've been lurking at the Orioles Hangout since 2005. My profile says I officially joined in July, but if I remember right, we got off to such a hot start that season that I wanted to devour all Orioles knowledge I could so I found the message board and lurked then and continue to do so now. Back in 2005, I was 25 years old (been a fan since I was a kid) and becoming more and more of an in-depth fan, especially as far as devouring baseball news, especially the O's. I was 4 years into my job as page designer for the Patuxent local newspapers and Fort Meade paper, and had recently moved from Laurel to west of Columbia. Been a Sunday season ticket holder for a long time with my Dad, and still am. Here it is, nine years later, and rarely a day goes by where I don't at least take a peek at the forums for news and gossip. I may have no more than 15 posts to my name, but I can't imagine not having this place to visit. It's always fun seeing the ups (and downs) of Orioles fandom. I look back at that 2005 team, and wow.....Steve Kline, Eric DuBose, Luis Matos.....names from the past. Always loved Newhan. Anyway, to wrap up, thanks to all that make the Hangout possible, even if I'm not the most active member, I do appreciate the Hangout and am glad it is here.
  19. Lot A was wide open, most people pulled in there. It was pretty able to be that close. I'd say it ended up around 400-450 people.
  20. Will the parking lots be open?
