  1. He'd been battling kidney disease for quite a while. https://syndication.bleacherreport.com/amp/2884681-white-sox-broadcaster-ex-mlb-player-ed-farmer-dies-at-age-70.amp.html
  2. Yet another rookie pitcher no one has ever heard of dominates the Orioles.
  3. Asher W. gave us about as good a game as you could have hopes for, too bad we couldn't come up with another run somewhere.
  4. Just curious...does the game enforce the new rule that relievers have to stay in for 3 batters or the end of the inning if not hurt? I'm sure the talk about Cobb building up trade value after his good outing will ratchet up. Let's see if we can win tomorrow and match last year's 2-1 start vs the Yankees!
  5. We should have used him more in spring training games instead of just sim games when camp was open. Just not the same level of intensity, and clearly he was not prepared for Opening Day.
  6. Meanwhile, USA Today is using Strat-o-matic to simulate the games. In their sim, the Orioles got 2 in the 8th off Ottavino to beat the Yankees 3-2. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/mlb/2020/03/26/mlb-opening-day-2020-strat-0-matic-simulations-games-results/2919419001/
  7. Here's a pretty good article on the state of our scientific knowledge about the virus: https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2020/03/biography-new-coronavirus/608338/
  8. Ewww.... peanut butter and ham?
  9. Eventually. But it's going to go up quite a bit before it comes down. Social distancing will slow that rise but it won't stop it for quite a while.
  10. Paul Schaffer has a show on the AXIS channel called Paul Schaffer +1 where he sits at a piano and has a musical guest, and just talks about the history and creation of the guest's songs and his influences, etc. For example he had Donald Fagen of Steely Dan on recently. The guest will sing parts of their songs and/or play the guitar and Paul will accompany on the piano. And they'll discuss the influences and history of the artist. Good show, I highly recommend it. I don't know if it's on demand or not, but if your cable system includes AXIS, look it up. Anyway, a recent episode had Harry Shearer on it, fully in the character of Derek Smalls, talking about the evolution of Spinal Tap as if it was a real band, going all the way back to Listen to the Flower People. It was really fun.
  11. Updated for this week's cuts and a brief not on Leblanc.
  12. I always thought he was a good 2Bman. Very quick first step.
  13. I want to say that maybe Jim Palmer did some postseason TV color commentary work in the early 80s for ABC, when he was still an active player. Not 83 obviously.
  14. Obviously if you just assume we never would have been able to score, based on the pathetic offense we showed that night, obviously we couldn't have won the game. But you can't manage based on that assumption. You have to maximize your chances of winning by using your best pitchers before you use lesser pitchers.
