  1. If we don't pick it up soon we are in real danger of losing this one fellas.
  2. It's your duty as a parent to try and make things seem OK when they aren't, but it would be mighty hard to be at this game with a kid. "If the Oriole Bird catches a ball its worth fifteen runs for us, you didn't know that"? Reminds me of when my friends father took him to a Reds minor league game in the late 80's and told him that Johnny Bench was catching for them now.
  3. The last time I saw a Brooks this sad he was hanging from the rafters of a halfway house after he couldn't cut it bagging groceries.
  4. Guys we are only down a touchdown and an extra point. It's still early. Oh, I'm looking at the Orioles score? That's no good.
  5. It's crazy how much optimism I have for the team. My hopes are similar to a lot of the other posters. If we ever start doing well with a lot of homegrown talent I will be thrilled. If the pitching develops at all I think we win 70 games next year which would be a huge jump.
  6. I would love it man, but you should keep it for the story alone!
  7. You sure he was wearing a Yankees hat? ☺️ Seriously though, it's stories like these that prevent me from truly hating fans of any sports team. That's just a cool human gesture. Also, if the jersey doesn't fit I don't think shipping to Southern Maryland costs that much!
  8. To be fair, Matos did have one really good year. If Santander can ever have that level of success over the course of a full season you would have to be encouraged.
  9. I agree, DJ needs an extended look. He's tearing it up in the minors and we have a real need in the outfield. Do something to give him a shot please. Heck, nickname him Rod and have "Forever Young" be his entrance music. People might think there's another concert
  10. I gave Elias an A and here's why. DD didn't get much when a traded Machado and company last year. I don't know if any of the guys we got will ever be an impact player. Early results don't seem promising to me. He was willing to make deal for Cashner that I thought was simply OK, but that proves that he will listen to reasonable offers. Nunez,Givens, Villar, and Mancini can all be pieces of a contending team if put in the right situations. Dont just get rid of them for marginal prospects, we have enough of those already. Overall I love what Elias is doing so far. We have some decent pieces on offense, so if some of our pitching prospects pan out we should be on track to contend in 3-4 years.
  11. The only thing I saw with Yefry was some deception in his delivery and he isn't 30. He didn't have good stuff in my opinion. Givens and Scott have good stuff but the results haven't quite been there due to command. Those are guys you give lots of chances to.
  12. Rodney thinks that everyone hates him, but that's ridiculous because he hasn't met everyone yet. Rodney gets no respect I tell ya.
  13. Guys, if we go on a heater we may win 60 games. We have time to try a new closer and let Givens try lower leverage situations. Heck, if there was such a thing as a low leverage season we are in one. There is a real possibility than nobody on the current roster is on our next contending team. We have something like six MLB quality guys on our roster, and I'm not sure we have any starters on a decent team. We may have gotten the most raw talent on our entire roster for international money, and it's likely he is another Felix Pie. Givens blowing a game is the least of our issues, lol.
  14. Well I think Givens has pitched himself out of a trade, but the talent is there.
  15. Let's look at the bright side, Davis has a better ERA than Straily and Cobb and we currently have a 7-6 lead.
  16. My 15 month old is teething and has a diaper rash and when he saw that play even he started laughing.
  17. That particular play was more on Nunez but Villar had such a lazy play the inning before on a routine ground ball.
  18. This is the only time this season I've been disgusted by our team. The lack of defense coupled by laziness in the case of Villar is insane.
  19. If we can win this series it may be the high point of the season!
  20. Please win this one! I'm so excited for the 9th.
  21. I agree. I am a big Machado fan, but he is not some generational talent. He will need to stay at 3b long term in my opinion. I would have loved to have a potential HOF talent on the team regardless.
  22. He doesn't look good to me. Felix Pie with not as good of an arm.
  23. I think he is the best player we have right now.
  24. I don't think Mancini is any better defensively at first than Chris Davis.
