  1. Did you realize he never gave up a grand slam over his entire career. Ask him about it some time.
  2. They should keep him around to teach the young up-and-comers how to run the bases.
  3. You sound as if you were in the back sit of my family car as my dad drove me home from youth baseball and basketball games.
  4. The way Boston handled their pitchers through spring training and early in the season has to be one of the biggest blunders in recent memory. Their fans have to be PO'd.
  5. Once the mystery of who the O's would get in the fire-sale trades of their tradeable players last season, there was nothing more to keep us interested. this year it has been fun to watch some of these guys develop and battle (Alberto, Santander, Means, Hays, etc.)
  6. The only thing that could make the misery of Boston playing for nothing in this series enjoyable would be the O's knocking Boston out of a playoff spot in this series.
  7. Here's the solution to the inflated home runs and strikeouts problem: Play with a larger ball - like the size of a softball. This will restrict the flight of the ball, take a little movement and velocity off of the ball from the pitcher, and what are now foul tips will become balls hit into play. Voila! problem(s) solved.
  8. This is where Bundy usually falls apart. After the fifth inning.
  9. one hit - a home run to the #9 hitter. I hope for his sake that he doesn't complete this game with a nine-inning one-hit outing. That would make a guy sick.
  10. Trey Mancini is just getting warmed up. 3-3 today after winning AL Player of the Week last week. He's not ready for the season to end.
  11. Blue Jays getting some late season BP here. Glad the O's could oblige.
  12. Yes. 45 ABs now vs. Baltimore this season. 6 doubles, 7 homers, 15 rbi, .356 average.
  13. I saw Mancini was named AL Player of the Week. Good for him. He has had a great year and is finishing strong.
  14. Maybe he's working on a new pitch? He thought it was Khris Davis? He thinks it's 2017?
  15. I don't mean to discount the difficulty of the Hays catch at all but..... I think the more difficult catches are those hit into the outfield gaps where the fielder is on a full sprint diving away from the infield or catching over his shoulder. For a lot of the homerun robbing catches, including Hays', the fielder has some time to get to the warning track and drift back toward then fence and then it's just a matter of timing his leap. These diving or over-the-shoulder type catches are made while on a full sprint and usually with the ball tailing one way or the other and the fielders back is to the plate. Those impress me more.
