  1. So...is the ride over?

  2. The entire season, if it lasts, will consist of one giant small sample size. (Irony) Purposefully exaggerating would be saying Harper laid down a hunt to end his season long joyless streak that had endured to late July. But yes 7 or so at bats in a weekend isn’t really anything to fret about. I don’t really care if Davis does it or not at this point. But the fact remains that a bunt down the line that makes it to dirt would in fact be a guaranteed single. And if done a few times might spread out the defense which statistics have shown do not help Davis.
  3. Yes tons. And I am NOT in the know. But even people close are beginning to cringe and say what is coming is bad. So in a year of COVID, killer Hornets, etc, is it even possible to be shocked anymore? There was always a running joke that Bruce Allen must have something on Danny Boy or he would be fired. Is it coincidence that Bruce Allen is fired in December and just a few months later the skeletons start falling? I think not!
  4. I don’t mind or care that the name is changing. I do think the name was not meant to be pejorative. But the current environment informs us that we need to be more senator others. I find it interesting that many native Americans have not been offended by the name. And I fully get that the Navajo Nation has been very vocal against the name. Are there really any names that can stand? If enough time passes? If we hold that change and evolution is good then this is ok. But NY Yankees sound awful Imperialistic and that Cartoon Oriole is an affront to Ornithologists. And the Pirates!!!! I do not understand why cities give up millions and millions to get teams instead of just buying them themselves. More pride, more jobs. crazy times
  5. So I am traveling but if you are a Redskin and Oriole fan you have spent years joking that your teams are run by the worst owners in sports. Any minute now the Redskins are nuking their franchise. Not with a name change. But with a scandal. This week there have been front office firings and retirements. But it’s about to hit the fan in DC. PA has been terrible at times but Ole Danny Boy just simply said: Hold my beer. https://www.hogshaven.com/2020/7/16/21326838/bombshell-report-about-toxic-culture-at-redskins-park-coming-out-is-dan-snyder-in-trouble
  6. Yeah we shoulda. You know I did in fact learn. But they kept moving those fences further and further back. And then by the time I hit a certain age, they were just too far. But in spite of it I kept playing even after I turned 6 and had to play on the ball field instead of my back yard. But man that last summer, in 1968, everyone on Westborne drive knew who I was. Every time I hit a blast the sounds would thunder down from all around. I think of it fondly very often. In my head, the crowd cheering my name. And then of course I chuckle because they were just yelling hey kid shut up and go inside already. 😎
  7. I agree if he sat out, but I was referring to this year. The Os save money based on fewer games as they do with all players based on the pro data agreement. But I believe the deferred money is paid in full. THAT is the part I am still looking To verify. Thanks for adding insight.
  8. Will he? Full salary from point of season beginning? Or as if season never missed a beat?
  9. I have tried to verify this, but I think I am stating this part correctly. Contracts cover time. Not playing does not change that time. However, in the case of Chris Davis... a sizable portion of his contract is deferred and therefore will be paid anyway. In other words, Orioles off the hook for major portion of Chris Davis' salary for 2020, however they still owe the entire portion of deferred money.
  10. I think you will find the response to be along the lines of: You put player X on the DL out of an abundance of caution for everyone. We insist you keep player X on the DL through the duration of proper quarantine procedure for the same reason. We know there will be false positives sometimes, but that's why we have 60 players available..
  11. Depends....Christian Colon is merely out of baseball. Babe Ruth is.....dead. But seriously, looking for middle ground. The next great Oriole Hall of Famer has been drafted. Kjerstad. But it should go without saying that until he proves that, Elias is a punk for not drafting Martin. Come on, let's get two.
  12. Is there any reason the Orioles are not using the entire 60 games as development? Moves like this would be fine with me. Not him per se batting second. But I would totally be on board if Hyde says...Im batting ________ second today so he gets 5 abs.
  13. Cast in this unlikely role, ill equipped to act, with insufficient tact, one must put up barriers to keep oneself intact.
  14. But Steve, if and I say if, meaning that just considering the possibility. Do you think this is a situation where we have really really beaten this horse more than other dead horses? Or, is it that this is the only horse dead or alive we have to beat?
