  2. Bonus points for guessing the exact date or other Org. he signs with. I'm saying January 28th with us.
  3. Jim Henneman says Miguel Gonzalez and Hyun Soo Kim are not making good first impressions during spring training and their roster spots may be in jeopardy. https://www.pressboxonline.com/2016/03/24/miguel-gonzalez-hyun-soo-kim-squarely-on-orioles-roster-bubble
  4. Baltimore Orioles (7-2, 1st +2.5) @ Texas Rangers (6-5, T-1st +0.5) Streak / L10 BAL: N/A TEX: N/A Game 2 (8:10) (QS=0)Vance Worley (0-0) 3.86 (1.71/.333), 5/1 (1HR) vs. (QS=2)Martin Perez (0-1) 3.65 (1.46/.225), 3/9, (1HR) Vance Worley: Worley allowed three runs in 4.2 innings in his 2016 debut giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hits, a walk and five strikeouts. He did ok for the first four innings, but could not get through the fifth and was probably left out there too long. His stuff did look pretty good for the first four and he'll look to build on that here. He has never pitched in Texas Insurance Company Stadium before and has only made one start against the Rangers which was a pretty good one despite taking the loss. Worley's BAA is extremely high across the board which is troubling, but aside from Desmond and Fielder, Rangers hitters have not seen too much of him. Hopefully, Worley will be able to throw more than 79 pitches this time and can out pitch Perez. Splits & Sits 10 vs. left: .250/.300/.500, HR 13 vs. right: .385/.385/.385 Bases Empty: .364 RISP: .400 RISP w/2 outs: .500 Men on w/2 outs: .500 Man on 3rd, < 2 outs: NA Career @ Global Life Park (0 starts) N/A Career vs. TEX (1 start) (0-1) 5 IP, 6H, 2ER, 3/2 vs. Batter Ian Desmond (14 AB) .214, 2 S-HR Prince Fielder 4/9, 2B, HR, 3RBI Elvis Andrus 1/3, 2B, RBI Adrian Beltre 1/2, 2B Mitch Moreland 1/2 Martin Perez: Perez, like Hamels, already has two quality starts, but Perez has walked nine batters in only 12.1 innings. He also has induced five double plays, but has not recorded a win for all his efforts. He has not shown himself to be anything all that special at this point in his career and has posted WAR's of 0.5 and 0.3 the last two seasons. He has not had this much trouble with walks in the past, so who knows how long this will last. Perez has not given up a hit in the first 15 pitches of a game yet this year, but has a .429/.500/.375 for the next 15 before gradually settling back down again as the game goes on. The Orioles patience should do them well here. Perez has been servicable in three starts against the Orioles and mediocre in general at Insurance Company Stadium and not a single Orioles hitter has seen him 10 times with Trumbo and Machado's nine AB's being good ones. Splits & Sits 14 vs. left: .091/.286/.071 38 vs. right: .276/.432/.289, HR, 6BB Bases Empty: .238, HR RISP: .222 RISP w/2 outs: .333 Men on w/2 outs: .200 Man on 3rd < 2 outs: .000 Career @ Global Life Park (25 starts, 4 relief) (9-9) 4.06 (1.31/.271), 10HR Career vs Baltimore (3 starts) (2-1) 4.34 (1.29/.282), 2HR vs. Batter Adam Jones 1/9 Manny Machado 3/9, HR, 3RBI Mark Trumbo 4/9, 2B, HR, 4RBI Chris Davis 1/8, 2B, 4K J.J. Hardy 3/6, 2B, 3RBI Matt Wieters 3/6, 2B, RBI Caleb Joseph 2/3 Tillman pitched alright until the sixth inning and though he did get unlucky on a few plays, he also gave up some line drive hits including the double and single that led off the inning to Mazara and Beltre, then another hard hit double to Odor later in the inning. Another recurring theme tonight again for the Orioles; Hamels allows nine baserunners in 5.1 innings and the Orioles only score three of them. We had two runners in scoring position with no outs, couldn't score. We had two men in scoring position with one out, only one run, inning ends on a double play with a runner on third. Only J.J. Hardy went up there knowing the game situation and only swung the bat when he got a pitch to lift into the outfield. No one else did that, it's just the same damn approach in that situation as they have with no one on. This stunning lack of awareness of what the game situation calls for is again becoming apparent this year as it was last year and again, the offense is not on the same page when they need to be and it has cost us a lot of runs already and possibly two wins. The very first chance Texas had to blow the game open, they did it. Sure, they got some luck, but baseball is part luck. I didn't see those guys swinging at pitches they couldn't get in the air or line to the outfield. The Texas hitters are on the same page and know what the game calls for, so why don't the Orioles hitters? Why does this problem carry over from last year and persist into this year? I don't get it. Six runs in 5.1 innings for Tillman with a walk and a strikeout. He allowed 10 baserunners and Texas got six of them across. On the bright side, both bullpens were lights out. Givens allowed the inherited runner to score, but turns out it didn't matter. McFarland and Brach with a solid inning each totaling 2.2 scoreless for the Orioles bullpen on one hit, a walk and four strikeouts. Texas' bullpen threw 3.2 scoreless on two hits, a walk and three strikeouts. Also, it's great to see Hyun-Soo Kim continuing to look better and better. Tonight, a line drive single to right field on a 93 MPH fastball after working the count full yet again. He can turn on them, after all! I think he is going to make all the people who said he couldn't hack it in the majors look really silly and is proving to be worthy of some more playing time. Kim needed to show something in his limited time and he is doing just that every time he gets in the game. Now, Worley and Perez. Neither one are all that flashy though I think Worley is the better of the two. Perez has respectable numbers in his home park and against the Orioles, but hardly threatening. Worley has never started in Texas which makes for the second of two starts this year where he will be making his first start in a new (to him) stadium. After a 7-o start, the Orioles now find themselves on a two game skid. How long will it last? Stranding runners night in and night out isn't going to help much unless you're the opposing team. Elsewhere, Toronto, Boston and New York are .500 and all tied for second with Toronto having won two in a row and the Yankees having lost two in a row. Tampa Bay sits in the basement at 3-6 sitting 3.5 games back and have also lost two straight.
  5. Stan "The Fan" Charles lays out six key questions for the Orioles, from the outfield to the starting rotation to Matt Wieters' durability behind the plate. https://www.pressboxonline.com/2016/03/21/six-questions-for-the-remainder-of-orioles-spring-training
  6. Jim Henneman can't make up his mind who is teasing who in the dance between the Orioles and free-agent pitcher Yovani Gallardo. http://www.pressboxonline.com/2016/02/10/touching-bases-before-pitchers-and-catchers-report
  7. {This is my first post} I am making my first trip to Orioles Spring training this year (March 30 to April 3) with my family and I was looking for any insights/suggestions/tips. We are staying on Lido Beach with another family (4 adults and 6 kids ages 9-16). Do the games normally sell out? Are some sections in the stadium better than others for kids? Do you recommend arriving early to games? Do the kids have a chance to interact with players? Any unique/interesting family-friendly restaurants in the area? Any other sites you would recommend? Any insight or information or links to other write-ups would be greatly appreciated. Love the Birds.
  8. Hey Orioles Fans! My name is Justine Griffin, I'm a reporter with the Sarasota Herald-Tribune newspaper. I'm writing a story about the start of the spring training season and would love to talk to a few of you who have plans to come down to sunny Sarasota to catch a spring training game or two. Please shoot me an email or give me a call: justine.griffin@heraldtribune.com 941-361-4941
  9. Young is expected to pass his physical and be added the O's 40 man roster soon. My guess on who is DFA'd to make room of the roster is Lavarnway or Paredes. Both are out for options. I believe either would be outrighted to Norfolk but they have to pass through waivers before that assignment can take effect. Neither Larvarnway or Paredes has been outrighted before so they would have to accept the assignment to Norfolk.
  10. I was just thinking that you could make an argument that Toronto is actually the worst team in the America League East the last 20 years. Because they havent sniffed a playoff game since 93. They havent even been close to first. Their best season in games back was 4.5 in the year 2000. Usually they have been at least 10-25 games back. With Baltimore in the Playoffs in 96,97 and 2012. Tampa has been in the playoffs in 08,10 and 2011. So by this standard can we make the argument that Toronto is the worst of the East?
  11. With the Orioles playing a night game tonight, we were able to take a quick drive over to the Twin Lakes Park/Buck O'Neill Sports Complex just down the street -- what a treat not to have to drive 3 hours! Matt Hobgood pitched his first live BP of the season (or of his career? not sure), and I was able to capture a bit of it. <object width="580" height="360"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/_4nM_oFUwgs&hl=en_US&fs=1&color1=0xe1600f&color2=0xfebd01&border=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/v/_4nM_oFUwgs&hl=en_US&fs=1&color1=0xe1600f&color2=0xfebd01&border=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="580" height="360"></embed></object>
  12. According to everyone's favorite MASN blogger, Roch Kubatko, the Orioles and Sarasota County have reached a tentative agreement for the team to move its spring training home to Ed Smith Stadium, beginning in 2010. Roch also cites this HeraldTribune.com article.
