  1. At least according to mlb.com.... https://www.mlb.com/news/predicting-future-world-series-winners I'm assuming all of us would take this right now, correct?
  2. In addition to his ability to hit lefties, I'm going to miss his enthusiasm and love of the game. I'm not sure advanced metrics can adequately account for any positive impact he would have on the team in that regard, but it sure seems like there was value there.
  3. The reason he stopped taking them after locking down the big contract is the same reason he won't just walk away and retire. Two syllables, rhymes with shmoney....
  4. I just love the old-school title-winning celebrations. There's so much to love about this video. Boog sprinting off the bag to go hug it out with the rest of the team, a fan grabbing Davey's cap and running off, and everyone immediately piling into the clubhouse to soak up the moment as a team. Then there would be the individual interviews with the players and the trophy presentation. By contrast, the elaborate on-field post-game ceremonies of today seem relatively forced and soulless.
  5. Despite knowing that winning wasn't really our top priority this "season", I watched every game I could on Extra Innings and enjoyed every bit of it. While we continue to struggle at times, this was a fun team to watch, and it appears that we have at least a few building blocks for the future. The old saying, "you're either green and growing or ripe and rotting" applies here, and this young group was way more fun to watch than the aging and underperforming 2017 club.
  6. I audibly groaned when I heard Bordy say that. I'll give him some credit, though, for saying it in a Bah-ston accent.
  7. And that's not counting how much he's probably helping the team outside the lines. Hanser is a spark plug and is fun to watch. He really enjoys being out there and it's infectious to the clubhouse.
  8. I was skeptical that they would be able to pull this off, but then the games started this weekend and I was immediately sucked right back in to the pure joy of the game and being able to root for my O's. It was odd with the empty ballparks, etc., but it was as close to real baseball as it could get, and I had a blast watching on TV. But it's pretty clear that this isn't going to work. There are just too many logistical hurdles to clear.
  9. Watching on DirecTV's MLB Extra Innings package from Canyon Lake, TX! Let's Go O's!
  10. Finished up his career as a Redskin. A true great, and a borderline Hall of Famer.

    Passed away today at age 88. A mainstay of Earl's coaching staff in the '70s.
  12. I played all of the Lance Haffner games as well, but baseball was the best. The first season I had was the 1989 version, so it was fun to play with the "Why Not?" O's.
  13. That would have been my choice as well if it was available.
  14. C. Count me in the "too early to tell" category.
