  1. Not quite. The had to win the last 3 against a Yankees team fighting for their playoff lives. Who said Gallardo was possibly hurt and who cares if Bundy is in the pen. If I remember correctly Jim Palmer started out in the pen too.
  2. Sounds like you got the 100 point show car price and not the I just want it to be safe and drivable price.
  3. I'll say 90% because I don't think another team will come close to matching the 7/154 that was on the table.
  4. I can understand if you want to use stats as a reason for not signing Davis that's fine. But falsely accusing the man of being an addict without any knowledge is just wrong.
  5. It wasn't reported, It was Jim Duquette on XM yesterday referencing how it was when he was GM of the Orioles. He basically said if money was allocated for a player that that money wouldn't have been used elsewhere. So he was speculating that DD was under the same constraints.
  6. I wonder if playing at Ed Smith Stadium was ever considered.
  7. When the starters start going deeper in games, the bullpen will get better. Until that happens it doesn't matter who you have in the pen.
  8. 8-5 against TB, NYY and BOS while giving up 3.6 runs per game and 1-5 against TOR giving up almost 8 runs per game. So 9-10 isn't that bad at all and while the starting pitching could have been better against TOR, overall I don't think they have been as bad as most people think.
  9. If this tweet by Rosenthal really had any legs wouldn't MLB Trade Rumors have at least a little blurb about it? So far I've seen nothing.
  10. That "idiot" was 19 of 31 for 225 yds, 2TD and 1 RU TD with a QBR of 104.9. A very good game for Flacco. The offense put up 33pts and yet you have posters wanting to put some of the blame on Flacco. Ridiculous.
  11. I thought the samething too about Pearce being so far off the line but then the announcers said Schoop was so close to the bag at second holding Gore close that Pearce had to fill the hole closer to second.
  12. The same Brian McCann that's hitting .292 with 8 hrs and a .892 ops against lefties? Cause if Buck would have walked Jeter and McCann gets the game winner I'm sure you would be blowing a gasket over that decision as well.
  13. Orioles are going to the playoffs, Yankees are going home and Jeter had his moment....meh.
  14. Really? The last 20 games Detroit is 12-8, the Orioles are 15-5. So while, as you say, the Tigers are peaking, the Orioles, pulled 3 games further away. Lets go back to the All-Star break. Detroit is 33-30, Baltimore, 41-19. And lets go back even further. That sweep you keep referring to, since then, Detroit is 62-56, Baltimore, 73, that's right, seventy-three and 43. Detroit is good but a very very beatable team.
  15. If you put Detroit in the division like they were in 1979 the O's would only have a 6 game lead. Throw in the Indians and Brewers and a more balanced schedule, I'm sure it gets tighter. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad they are up 11 games in the division its jmo that you can't compare the 2.
  16. Speaking of suspicious timing. They adjust the rule right before the Yankees come to town...."Speaking of home, did anyone notice how Major League Baseball decided this week to adjust Rule 7.13 for catchers blocking the plate? It's no longer legal to straddle it, as the Orioles have been doing since spring training. Oh really? Now it's not allowed? That method was fine until the final month of the regular season. Joseph, Matt Wieters and Nick Hundley left a clear path for the runner, as required by the rule, but they did so without being stationed beside the plate and having to make a sweeping tag. Showalter and bench coach John Russell figured out a way to abide by the rule without putting their catchers at a greater disadvantage. It was inspired and I'm surprised other teams didn't copy it. But there must have been complaints, which reached Joe Torre, the executive vice president for baseball operations. I'm told that the word "straddle" actually appears in the memo sent to clubs on Tuesday. Care to guess who complained the loudest?"...http://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2014/09/this-that-and-the-other-68.html
  17. 6-4 over their last 10. Keep doing that and this team will be ok.
  18. http://m.mlb.com/chc/video/v35566215/?tcid=mm_chc_vid&c_id=chc.....If Davis was running directly down the foul line you could make a case for the catcher blocking the plate. But he took his turn wide and that changes his lane to the plate. And if you freeze the video at 12 seconds, to me, it looks like the plate is open from the catchers left foot to the back of the plate.
  19. 2002 Orioles finished the last 36 games going 4-32. 2011 Cardinals were 10.5 games back of Atlanta for the wildcard and ended up winning the world series. Anything can happen between now and the final game of he year. It's way to early to be claiming the division, or looking at magic numbers.
  20. And the Yanks are 2 games back in the loss column to KC while the Jays are 3 back for the last wildcard spot.
  21. They won today and increased the lead to 5 in the loss column. See how nicely this works too?
