  1. Thanks for the info. These reports are truly appreciated.
  2. I wish some of them would pitch to my area code 276.
  3. This series was what prompted me to become an Orioles fan. It was awesome to even see on tv.
  4. Thanks for pointing this out. This may be the most disappointed I have been with the O's. Perhaps I had my expectations higher than I should have, but this team had the potential to be more than they have shown.
  5. An amazing stat from last nights game. The three Shorebird pitchers made only 100 pitches in their combined nine innings. With a efficient 83 strikes, no walks, and 10 strike outs.
  6. Normally I try to keep my posts somewhat positive. Lately though I see some things that in my opinion are negatively affecting the Orioles performance. First, Chris Davis looks like a lost ball in the high weeds. His bat speed is missing as well as his ability to even make contact with even mediocre pitches. Second, Chris Tillman, even though he has never had a lot of FB velocity, has even less pitch speed,and shows no command. Third, while I have been a big Buck supporter and consider him to be among the best managers, being loyal to past performance should only go so far. I have been a big fan of the two Chris's for years but it is time to admit they have lost "it". The ugly elephant in the room is obviously Davis's contract, and where do you hide someone whom you are obligated to pay that much money.Tillman is much easier, just release him. The way he is pitching right now he could not get out minor league hitters. Maybe he can sign with an independant league team and get himself straightened out. after all he is still relatively young. In Chris Davis' case we are stuck with him.
  7. If the Twins did a shift with a no hitter they would get what they deserved.
  8. I don't know who this Sherman is but seemed like a negative comment to me that may have been made by someone from another team's following.
  9. It does make me feel better about the season.
  10. This is a good signing. A veteran player to bring up from Norfolk when the need arises. I didn't say If the need arises. Over a 162 game schedule there will be a need for this kind of depth.
  11. Would a vaccine prevent it. Or would direct contact spread it. LOL
  12. This goes to prove that it is a team game, made up of individuals. When no one is playing well enough to make up for the ones who aren't, teams lose games. The Orioles experienced a team slump that with a couple of hot hitters might have been turned around. Hitting is contagious, not hitting may be the same
  13. I'm very happy. At least we get to see what the Orioles do have, good or otherwise.
  14. This chart does not include any pitchers that were international signings.Just draft picks.
  15. Gausman..Bundy..three aint no fun days!!!
  16. I agree with this wholly. This has been the most frustrating off-season I have experienced as a fan.
  17. Somebody just made a mistake. As I responded to Weems, I was just being sarcastic.
  18. I know, I was just being sarcastic.
  19. When did David Hess start pitching with his left hand>
  20. I totally agree with this post and re-iterate what is stated. Merry Christmas!! Whomever you are and wherever you are.
