  1. I don’t think Cobb has looked that bad honestly...Beckham single handedly turned the last inning into a big one! We have got to talk to Manny about moving back to third or put someone else there!

    OH Bracket

    I have entered the bracket challenge! Also, on a side note! I have two ESPN Keeper baseball leagues that I am needing some replacement owners for! One of them is actually an OH 16 team league! I've posted both leagues and their rules and needs in the fantasy sports thread! Check it out!

    Buck Stuff

    We have the best pitcher in possibly baseball.. yes I would argue that. In a winner takes all game, he doesn't see the mound? We have our best hitters due up next..give them one more shot at it. I'll never understand this one.
  4. I know we have looked rough recently...but I firmly believe in the the team is never as good as it looks during a hot streak and never as bad during the bad times. This team is the very definition of streaky. We still have talent on this team. We have talent that can get hot and keep us in this thing (we are technically still a Wild Card as of now) As easy as it is to watch them and think it's over, one week in baseball can make us feel good again. Guys, step back from the ledge and just enjoy your favorite team playing meaningful games! Over the next month or so, we will get to learn a lot about our team. If anyone can rally a team, it's Buck! Baseball is such a long roller coaster season...enjoy the ride while we are on it and hope like hell you don't have to puke when it's over! [emoji108] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Well it certainly depends on the prospect..if it's a throw away then not bad...better not be a Mancini, Cisco, anything like that or I'll want to throw things lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. 16 home runs, 44 rbis, and some speed 20 SB isn't bad for a pitcher that we can't use. I like it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. We had Chris Davis, Kim, and Wieters all out of the lineup and playing an away game. Baseball is such a long season. We will look like the best team in baseball at times, like an average team at times, and one of the worst at times over the course of a season. I never get overly excited when we are on one of our tears and never get overly depressed when we lose a couple of games in a row. Just have to stay the course and let it play out. That being said, we do need to make a trade and improve our club. Not only does it help us talent wise, but it's a mental confidence booster when seeing our competition improve through trades.

  8. How's it looking for the game today? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I entered under my screen name here. We could make things interesting..being that it is an Orioles Hangout bracket. Say all the losers have to pitch in and buy a couple of tickets to a game of the winner's choosing this season. If enough enter, really wouldn't be all that pricey for each person, if we could figure out a way for everyone to contribute their part of course i.e. paypal or something of that nature. We could also go with an item from the Orioles store or such? Pride is fun to play for also, just throwing an idea out there! Looking forward to it!
  10. I am a die hard Orioles fan due to my grandfather and father bringing me up to becoming one. I have lived in North Carolina all of my life, so I am also a diehard Tarheels fan and Carolina Panthers fan! I think it is definitely easy to be fans of different areas depending on each individual's case. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I'm well aware I'm in the minority, but I don't have a problem with playing reimold for an extended period and leaving him in the lead off role. He has in my opinion definitely shown enough glimpses of potential, that he could if given regular playing time and stays healthy could be a productive player. The guy has had a a ridiculous amount of injuries to deal with since his very solid rookie campaign and obviously has had a rough road trying to come back. Bottom line is he plays hard, he is a team player, he has a very solid eye at the plate and a bit of pop. It's hard for anyone to not be streaky when they only play once a week or even less than that like he has endured over the past year. Let him play everyday, get in a rhythm and see what he can bring to the table. With all that we endured with his injuries and development wouldn't it be nice to see him become a productive player that we all have hoped he could become? We write off his last few games like it was nothing but had he gone 0-3 we sure would have paid attention to that. I say give him a shot...what do we have to lose this year after all?

  12. I have to admit I haven't been a huge fan of the instant replay system. It does work at times, but there have been more than a couple of instances that I was confused as to how the play wasn't overturned (don't ask me which ones, I just remember there being instances throughout the season with various games not just Orioles). Last night I was 100% sure that it should be overturned and was shocked when it wasn't. I thought he was clearly safe and really wasn't even that close of a call honestly. Also what's the point of the challenge, if managers still can go out after they are out of challenges and still ask the umpire to check? What's the punishment of not having one if you can still get the umpire to go check the play for you? Seems unusual to me Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It feels like this team is trying to not score I swear. That's little league right there! Tag regardless...you will score either way geez Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I'm also a firm believer in confidence being a huge factor. Does anyone think the Orioles had the confidence they really should have going into the year knowing they were without their 2nd best (arguably 1A and 1B) reliever, their absolute best offensive player and most reliable, and an outfielder with the veteran experience that they could at least count on to play every day and give solid ABs as well as get on base at a decent clip? If I'm playing and I see my championship caliber team take these hits and then watch my GM do NOTHING to replace them..well it's hard to say it wouldn't bring up some doubt into the team and upcoming season. Just to clarify I was fine with letting miller and Markakis walk. No way we couldn't have resigned Nelson at that contract however...and absolutely no way we should have let all 3 walk and not had any kind of replacement plan other than the highly flawed throw a whole bunch of crap at the wall and hope one or two stick philosophy. This team was too good last year to deserve that kind of plan. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. The goal shouldn't have been to stay at the same pace as last years offense but rather to outperform it. We missed quite a few games from crush, machado, and Wieters last year so there was definite room for improvement on the offensive side. The offense is obviously struggling mightily. We don't have anyone in the lineup that is consistently hitting right now, and honestly no one in our lineup that I fully trust in a clutch AB..I had a ton of faith in Nelson in those situations last year and a lot of times he came through and carried us. The offense struggling can directly affect the pitching in my honest opinion. When you are pitching and you know it's likely the offense may struggle, you feel that you have to be perfect and put too much pressure and overthinking into every pitch instead of relaxing and pitching. That pressure can cause many pitchers to struggle with consistency and results. I'm not saying it's all the offense's fault that our pitchers have struggled by any means...I do feel it has something to do with it however to a degree. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
