  1. I have 2 words for you: Move Him Up. Um, sorry, I meant HUNTER HARVEY! 3IP, 1H, 0BB, 7K. There's nothing for him to achieve here. The innings went like this. 1st: not in any particular order, but single + stolen base put a runner on 2B with less than 2 outs. No problem. 2K's sandwiched around a neat field of a come-backer where Harvey looked the runner back and made the play at 1st. 2nd: 3 Ks. 3rd: 2 Ks and a weak infield pop-up. Move him up. In the top of the 2nd Garrett Copeland singled, went to 2nd on a PB, and then promptly got himself picked off. We put up a 5-spot in the top of the 4th. We were 6 batters in before the 1st out, and that drove in a run. Scott Burke pitched 4 innings and looked good. Both he and Nick Jobst look to me to have issues with their windup/delivery. Mind you I've never pitched and never coached, but it looked to me like Burke's delivery varied a fair bit from pitch to pitch. Occasionally it looked like his pitching hand ended up near his strong-side shoulder and his delivery looked like tossing a dart. Other times it was not so pronounced. Jobst threw hard. I'll give him that. His delivery seemed very deceptive. He kept the ball in or near the glove until the very end. I don't know enough about pitching to know if that is a good thing or a bad thing, but it was a very noticeable thing. Jason McCoy at SS was very competent and seemed to have a good arm. Our center fielder - I believe it was T.J. Nichting - was involved in a strange play. There was a high drive to basically straightaway center. all of a sudden he was running away from the infield, adjusting his trajectory as he went, and made the over-the-head catch. Either it was a very bad play (bad route), or it was a really good play (ball lost in the poor visuals of a minor league stadium and a great recovery to make a great catch). I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt. Otherwise, not much to say. Neither team had many base runners outside of our 4th. To summarize, 2 words: Hunter Harvey. It was a great joy to see him thoroughly dominate a start.
  2. Thanks Patrick. I intend to be at Coney Island Wednesday. I'll be wearing an orange 'Baltimore Baseball 1954' hat.
  3. Both of my kids' nicknames come from that book. One is the Noodle-eating Poodle. The other is the Tweetle (renamed Sweetle) Beetle.
  4. I don't think I've ever seen an infield throw as man in the dirt as the O's do. Davis saves 2-3 E's a game with his picks. GREAT win. Big heart.
  5. I'm sure not missing Matt.
  6. Chris Davis would've had that. Why the bunt with 0 outs and a run already in scoring position?
  7. I like the matte black as well. My son pointed it out to me the first game we watched this season.
  8. He probably pulled every muscle in his legs on that. Good thing he had a few days off afterward.
  9. Yes, I think I'm starting to see the problem here.
  10. And it's pretty much guaranteed that there are men on base.
  11. This is my sentiment as well. I would ;have welcomed the Alvarez/Mancini combo in place of Trumbo. I have nothing against Trumbo, but I really like Alvarez, I think I might like Mancini, and that money could've been better utilized. I guess DD was never a swaps trader. Really glad to have Pedro back.
  12. I seriously do not ever want to see Tyler Wilson on the bump for the O's again. His stuff is just too hit-able.
  13. Yup. Didn't understand why they signed him either time.
  14. Thanks Tony. That's very encouraging to read.
