  1. Brown really improved over the year. Arnold is OK, Garceau needs to retire and Palmer/McDonald are gold. As for Newman, she does OK on color but her PBP started horrible and sunk to the depths of Marianas Trench bad as the season progressed. They’ll probably keep her so I’ll just tune out whenever she’s on.
  2. I put on my cap the first time this season and blared Orioles Magic…yep, I’m crazy.
  3. Walk-off game winner tonight.
  4. If the organization is doing absolutely nothing to help the big club then why not aim high and at least try for some high upside talent? I used to defend the FO when people called them cheap...now it's looking more and more like they were right. Not a lot of draft faith in this crew to actually pick the best player available.
  5. There was a time where I lived, breathed, ate, slept Orioles baseball. Hell, I stayed up for the 19 inning game in Seattle back in the day and bragged about it. 2018 through 2021 has killed it for me. My basic sentiment is "If Elias doesn't care about winning then why should I?" MLB is a stacked deck and I just don't feel like playing along anymore.
  6. I do have friends who treat every portion of their life as a "winner takes all" high stakes political debate. It is exhausting and frustrating and few people like them. I do hope there is a place for just talking sports with out that other nonsense....because I don't come here to have my viewpoints challenged. I come here to rest and enjoy the limited free time I do have.
  7. I have opinions on all of this, and in the end, no one will care. Not sure why the political wing of MLB is of such concern to the OP. The rigged financial landscape of the game and the product the Orioles have placed on the field for the majority of my 36 years as a fan is far more offensive. Expanding the playoffs to 16 games is a greater tipping point for this frustrated fan.
  8. It's a GOOD thing the SEC Network didn't show that game when Kjerstad tore the wings off of a butterfly, pushed a little old lady and spat on the ump! That Heston is a BAD dude. Martin on the other hand....Nobel Prize.
  9. Born in Arkansas, raised in Maryland - lifelong and passionate fan of both the Hogs and O's. I'll admit my homerism took over when the O's picked Kjerstad #2. I've seen Kjerstad play on the SEC Network probably 30-40 times during his 2+ years in Fayetteville. Really really liked him Freshman year, fell off a bit Sophomore and started making great progress as a Junior. Nice fluid swing built for OPACY, underrated defense, intense but not a jerk, seems to be a great teammate. Taught by the best of the best in Van Horn and Arkansas' incredible coaching staff. Absolutely inane for folks to compare
  10. There are many athletes who are now seeking to use their "platform" to advocate for whatever. Sports should be a relief, a pastime and entertainment. When the players (i.e. entertainers) interrupt their profession and use their platform for "cause XYZ" then it becomes an even greater annoyance. Yep, I've been making it just fine without sports.
