  1. Okay, highlight of the second half. Whenever you go into Yankee Stadium, come back to take two out of three, and basically deny them a pennant, that's a highlight of a lowly season.
  2. Losing is a culture, and the Orioles have built a tradition of it. Buck Showalter and Davey Johnson were able to break the tradition briefly.
  3. Whenever it gets close to a record, even if it is a negative one, it gets strangely interesting.
  4. The Angelos family gets way too much credit for being "local" and "keeping the team in Baltimore." Those do not begin to outweigh 3 decades of futility (minus a handful of competitive seasons, no championships).
  5. The Orioles should change their name to the Cicadas, they make an appearance every 17 years.
  6. This is the inevitable slide into irrelevance for an AAAA team. It seems that 2012-2016 was ages ago. It was a fun ride. I just wish it would happen more often than once every 20 years.
  7. Flyball pitchers make me nervous except when they are pitching for the other team. David Wells was an effective flyball pitcher, but I had an easier time when Scott Erickson was on the mound.
  8. I am not watching, were these fly balls threats to go out? It must be harder to hit it out when a pitcher is throwing 76 mph. 🤔
  9. The best team money can buy has won 1 world series over the last two decades.
  10. There is no joy in Mudville tonight, but there's a lot of joy in Birdland... Where is the Everybody is Dancing thread?
  11. The Orioles are finding their level. The worst outcome was for them to play out of their minds in a 60-game season and everyone think this is a finished product. It's not.
  12. I like fan banter too, but come on, that was an awful call by the Orioles. You may say that hindsight is 20/20, but it was awful and you know it. It was the first of a series of bad calls following their peak in 2014. It was downhill from there.
  13. At the end of the day, the message is "we don't believe you have more than three productive years in you." They let him walk. Cruz is too classy to go the media complain.
  14. I didn't say we were not testing more than in April, we are (which is a good thing). What I said is that the increase in recorded cases and deaths is not due to more testing. The positivity rate of the tests has increased in July with respect to June. Also, I have not seen anywhere that people are going to the hospital more now than in April. I think hospitalizations is a good indicator of severe cases.
