  1. Rams 4 losses were by 33 points combined. Tonight, they're down by 36.
  2. 6 for 6 RG3 time for sure.
  3. 'Well, good thing Im not the OC
  4. 4th and 9. Let Tucker kick.
  5. 5 for 5. Unreal offense tonight.
  6. 2 sacks keeping Lamar from a 3rd perfect rating
  7. 5th QB Mayfield, Darnold, Allen, Rosen, Lamar
  8. A lot of teams passed on Mike Trout. Lamar is looking like the NFL equivalent, making a lot of teams look stupid.
  9. Cost them a FG. Some stupid penalties, but that seems like nitpicking as well as they're playing so far. First 4 possessions = 4 TDs.
  10. Every year, the Terps play 3 non-conference games, and 9 vs the BIG10. Being in the East division, Michigan, Ohio St. and Penn St. are sure losses on the schedule every year. The schedule alternates every year between 4 or 5 conference games at home. In 2020, it's 5 at home including Wisconsin and Minnesota, the two top teams in the West. Sure to hear some spin from Damon Evans, on his weekly Thursday appearance on 105.7, telling us how the Terps are showing progress and looking ahead to next season. 9/5 vs Towson 9/12 vs Northern Illinois 9/19 @ WV 10/3 vs MINN 10/10 @ IND 10/17 @ Northwestern 10/24 vs WIS 10/31 vs Rutgers 11/7 @ MICH 11/14 vs Ohio ST 11/21 @ Penn ST 11/28 vs Mich ST https://umterps.com/news/2019/5/9/future-football-schedules.aspx
  11. HOME game for the Terps and they get demolished by Nebraska 54 -7. Nebraska came in with a 4 game losing streak. Not anymore. Largest victory for Nebraska in 10 years in the conference. 4th time MD gives up 52+ in a game this season. MD loses 6th straight, only MSU left to put the season out of its misery. In 2015, Locksley was the interim coach after Edsall was fired. The Terps went 1-5 with the only win being Rutgers. For his career, MD is 4-13, two of the four victories were Rutgers.
  12. He's free to say that to my face - so long as he brings a step stool to help him. 😉
  13. I see people stepping up with their wallets, and that's all well and good, but Tony said a couple times this isn't about money. T can correct me if I'm wrong, but it's more about a 25 year dream, a dream for a scouting job in baseball. That's what I'm reading in you posts. Baseball is moving away from old school scouts like Tony. Calls aren't getting returned, no thank you's, even if done politely, don't hurt any less. My unsolicited advice to Tony is this. If you still enjoy scouting, have at it, but realize your audience is this board alone. That's the harsh message the Orioles have given you. If they don't appreciate you, then say, "SCREW YOU, your loss" and walk away. Make baseball a hobby not a second career. If that hobby means managing a message board, fine. If it means not dealing with that headache and relaxing watching the games, do that. Get on your cycle and go for more rides. You already have a solid career, put your focus on that. Focus on the job that pays the bills, puts a roof over your head and food on the table, and provides for your retirement. BTW, 50? Hah! Been there, done that at the beginning of this decade. If that milestone is making you reevaluate your life, you would hardly be alone.
  14. The Red Sox aren't tanking, but are trying to get below the luxury tax payroll. J.D. Martinez didn't opt-out and they need to drop about $28M in payroll.
  15. I think SF will be the favorite the following week. The Ravens have to travel back across the country after a Monday night game. Agree that this isn't the 2018 Rams. Seattle is a better team and beating them there also gives me confidence about playing L.A.
  16. Better that than inducting people for the sake of putting on a show. The Orioles Hall of Fame already does that. 😉 2022 is headlined by ARod (not unless Bonds gets in first) and local "favorites" Big Papi and Teixeira. I may be buying extra Pepto-Bismol that year myself.
  17. The BBWAA will still have some players backlogged that year; it's what they do. Yeah, I'm pulling us further from the OP by asking - how long with players like Curt Schilling remain on the outside? It becomes the what-about game. Well, if Mussina gets in, then "what about" Schilling? Without straying into politics, we know that there are things besides the numbers that go into the voting games. Or is there another reason why Eddie Murray, of the 500/3,000 club, "only" received 85.3% of the vote besides his less than favorable reputation amongst the writers? So short story, long, I don't think there will be an empty 2021 class. It just won't (shouldn't) have any first ballots. There are also the Era (formerly called Veterans') committees that may add to the list. 2021 is Golden Days (1950-69) and Early Baseball (Before '50). 2010 had 1 from the BBWAA, 2 in 2011, 1 in 2012, and 0 in 2013 so an empty class wouldn't be unprecedented.
  18. Agree. Maybe it's a separate discussion for the MLB forum, but when, if ever, will the changes to the voters loosen their opposition to the steroids cheaters? Bonds and Clemens are still below 60% after 7 years on the ballot. Their time with the BBWAA is running short.
  19. Jeter couldn't hold Ripken's jock, but he'll stay pass Cal in votes. With Rivera in, being the second unanimous selection doesn't have nearly the cachet as being the first. PS - I'll go a step further and say there are no first ballot players in 2021 that should be inducted at all. Buehrle and Hudson have the highest career WAR of that list. Add in Torii Hunter and those three may get in down the line, but not in 2021. PSS - Roberts is one and done on the ballot
  20. In the CINCI game, the only punt came with about 1 minute left under wrap-up time with RG3. Couple that with fewer turnovers, and you're getting a team that puts up points about every time it gets the ball.
  21. Well, it's still the Ripkens involved in the dispute with Aberdeen over the stadium.
