  1. You know what, you're right! What is Mike Elias doing running this team, you should be! You bring up things I'm sure he has never thought of and has no reason for.
  2. Totally agree but I did find one hidden gem, for me at least, last game. Out behind the statues near the picnic area is a small boogs stand. I thought this was just an additional stand with the same Boog's items, but it is not! I got in it just because there was less line. It is the "Boog's Smokehouse", and had pulled pork, brisket, and chicken platters and sandwiches. We got some of each throughout the party I was with and everyone was impressed, because we haven't been finding good food this year. The chicken platter they give you a big quarter chicken that is seasoned well. The other
  3. I was at the game last night. Grayson looked good and threw an easy 99-100. He seemed to throw a lot of off-speed pitches. I'd say he threw more off-speed than fastballs last night but not sure, seemed like maybe he was working on stuff. He threw some back door sliders on the outside corner to lefties that were un-hittable. I was a little surprised how often he got to two strikes and the batter would foul off 3-5 pitches, didn't seem like he had his strikeout stuff as much last night. But overall he looked good and am still very excited for him. I didn't eve
  4. They're so good that we are able to identify guys that make it look like we are trying but really we know they will mainly lead to losses which is actually what we want! 😂
  5. Yeah she would be a great golf announcer
  6. I also have these sheets that I've shared before. They just track our top prospects across the board. It's a nice way to see them all in one place and I enjoy updating them daily or close to daily. I know some people have enjoyed following along. I have them sorted by MLB Top 30 Orioles Prospects and then the unlisted guys I have sorted by level. Also, on the right I have how we acquired them. Link to Hitters Link to Pitchers
  7. Yeah I also thought that was gone
  8. I think we should move Mancini back to LF and play Mount at first. I thought I remembered him being pretty good there but maybe I'm imagining it.
  9. I didn't mind that one as much since we were down 7 but yeah still questionable. Good for him. Bringing in Armstrong is unexplainable.
  10. They better get 65! I have big money on the over 64.5! (20 dollars 😂)
  11. Get a rebound! Come on Terps. Winner plays Alabama.
  12. Oh yeah, I definitely understand it and think it is the key one. But that is definitely the one I am most uncomfortable with. I think it needs to and always will stay 3 strikes and 4 balls, while starting fresh each time.
  13. I'd be fine with everything except starting 1-1.
  14. 30, good catch, still need to get my mind out of football mode.
  15. There should be a Beerfest competition between all 32 teams, televised, with groups of fans representing each team.
  16. If it is an In N Out burger I'd take it
  17. Agreed. Hoping we start/continue to be a team that can turn things around for guys that have some talent but haven't had much success. How many times do you see other teams pick up someone who we would qualify as "not good" and they revamp him to be a piece on a contending team? I feel like it happens a lot but not as much for us over the last 10-20 years. Hoping the next 10-20 years we're one of those teams that turn some of these flyers into contributors.
  18. https://www.mlb.com/ MLB.com is doing a free bracket challenge for those interested. I threw one in, anything can happen.
  19. I thought there was a solid chance they'd move him to the bullpen. Some of you remember a pitcher much better than the one I do. Sure, he had some fine stretches. But he was a mediocre, injury-prone pitcher for us really. Batters are hitting .195 this year against him. In his career they're at .253. Good luck keeping it up Dylan! But hey, good for him, I'm not rooting against him or anything. But it's 8 starts. He wasn't going to turn it around here, IMO.
  20. This will get bumped in 3 years and then we can have somewhat of an opinion on it. Personally, like Arrieta, I thought Bundy would've had a shot at being dropped from our rotation if they stayed, the same year they won/almost won the Cy Young with the next team. It happens, I'm not losing any sleep over it. Just laugh and keep on building, we're heading in the right direction. We're a half game out of a playoff spot on September 9th and we're "3-5 years away"! Try to enjoy it.
  21. Was hoping we would get to see Diaz for 20 games. Seems like a great time to give him a taste but what do I know. Guess it would ruin him for life...
  22. Mount is going to hit one off of the Hilton here
  23. Jeez, I'm a big fan of being aggressive with 2 outs and making them make a play/good throw, but that one was questionable.
