  1. Yeah, Luis Palacios.
  2. Or Luis Palacios. Lefty for lefty.
  3. Alex Vesia for the win.
  4. Yes, that’s the one! Four hit shutout... okay that works... I remember Menhart was a hard luck loser that day since his only hit allowed was a HR and lost 1-0.
  5. My recollection is that both starters fired a one hitter and the difference was ours was a Harold Baines dinger to CF. O’s won 1-0. I think it was the Twins, perhaps? Hard to remember exactly... I was a little overwhelmed. I think it was 94, maybe 95. An even better memory was 93, though. I was dating the granddaughter of Chuck Thompson’s wife’s best friend. Somehow the whole family, including grandma moved to Florida... but grandma and granddaughter came back to Baltimore to visit for like a month and stayed at the Thompson’s. I won’t bore you with the details about being alone at Chuck’s house with the girl... y’all care more about the absolutely surreal experience of driving to an Orioles game in the backseat of Chuck Thompson’s car. I mean it was normal to hear his voice driving to the stadium, but not because he was driving!
  6. I interviewed Mike Mussina one time… In actuality I was an intern at WBAL and I put a microphone in his face in the locker room. It was after a one-hitter though which is pretty cool. It’s funny what stands out… I remember Gregg Zaun’s wannabe hipster outfit in his locker with like a silk vest. That, and Cal being there was pretty epic.
  7. I always thought the “break up the _____” comment was a reference to breaking apart monopolistic companies (like Standard Oil or AT&T).
  8. I watch every sporting event from DVR and don't understand why people hate it. Somehow it's like taboo or something. It is vastly superior, especially with the +30 second button during football. RB is tackled, hit the button, everyone is lined up for the next play. Like magic. A little trickier for baseball and you lose the flow of the game, but you skip commercials, mound visits, a bit of time between batters.
  9. Forgive my pessimism, though I suppose this is precisely the place for it... but I'm just not seeing the 2018 Yankee offensive juggernaut. Okay, Stanton... even with massive injury concerns, he'll be an MVP candidate. Sanchez could be great, maybe. Okay, so what else? Many people see a major sophomore slump regression coming with Judge. Guys that tall often struggle to cover a huge strike zone long-term... plus he had a bad 2nd half and a poor Spring... I'm not buying it, but okay... I guess that's a strong 3-4-5. (Especially a healthy Stanton.) But the rest? An infield of Walker-Wade-Gregorious-Drury... Is that scaring anyone? Gardner and Hicks are probably league-average.
  10. I’d like to see a legit 3b on a pillow contract and bump Beckham to a high-use Utility role.
  11. Rep to you. Thank you for the breakdown.
  12. So how many MLB rotation spots do you think are waiting to be filled by FA’s?
  13. The O’s have three openings in the opening day rotation. Most other teams have their top 4-5 identified. As slow as hot stove has been this year it feels as though most teams are waiting for prices to come down on this flawed crop of FA’s... and we know for sure that’s what DD is doing. So, I ask you, how many rotation spots across MLB are going to be filled by a FA? And, assuming we will never be in the running for Yu or Arrieta, you can subtract two from that number... and, with all of that in mind, is there any chance the game of musical chairs leaves us with Lynn, Cobb, Cashner types on team friendly deals?
  14. And the ChiSox would be over .500 if they didn't have to play us those three games.
