Girardi is hot!

Recommended Posts

Girardi is pissing and moaning about not playing a day night DH today. Just heard him on YES...someone asked him about possibly the O's just coming off an 11 day road trip had something to do with it...he shrugged his shoulders. He said the Yanks have not agreed to play on September 8th and believes the game should be made up in NY when the O's visit. He'll probably file a grievance, or the players will and win.

Wasn't he the one throwing around ideas for a Friday DH without talking to the O's?

Also, the Yankees are the ones that really need these games, it should be up to them to make it work on the O's schedule.

I don't think I've ever disliked a manager the way I do Girardi. He's got to be the biggest horse's ass I've ever seen. You think that the team wanting to mourn Flanny might have something to do with it you POS.

Boo Hoo! Joe, perhaps you'd like to call Scranton and get a pitcher or two down to Baltimore so you don't have to blow out your rotation. You don't seem to have a problem when you have to juggle your rotation at playoff time. What a bum.

Title had me worried for a sec haha...but yeah, this is just obnoxious. Thorne mentioned during the game that Granderson made a stink about it too. Shut up and play.

Yep, that's the same dirt bag. Apparently, Buck was furious, according to Thorne. I hope they try to screw them over just to spite that d-bag.

This season has somehow made me hate the Sox and Yankees even more. They spend inordinate amounts on their roster and then run around as if they own Major League Baseball and somehow deserve their every whim

boo-hoo. Bake a pie. Eat a pie. They didn't want to play a doubleheader Monday because they were already looking past us to Boston. I guess they shouldn't have taken tonight's game for granted. S.O.B.'s the lot of them.

"Given the advance notice and the fact that other teams have adjusted their schedules ahead of time, we are perplexed at the current options we are being presented with in regards to making up any games postponed due to Hurricane Irene.

"The proposition to take away our only full off day in the final month of the season is not an option, even though the Orioles' front office and the Commissioner's office think this is an adequate solution. It's a shame that the decision has now come down to possibly having ot play four games in two days or having to come back to Baltimore for another makeup game.

Poor little Granderson, how will he ever come back on the 8th to play a baseball game when it was his off day. It's just not fair. I guess he thinks the O's should just forfeit to the almighty MFY.

Yeah, the other day when Girardi said they wanted to get a doubleheader in today, I had a facebook conversation with a Yankee fan I sort of know about how we would never reschedule just to help the Yankees under Buck, especially after the comments to the press. As I told him today, all of the crying by the Yankees makes me really happy. The Yankees already have every advantage in the world, and now they want everything handed to them. Well guess what? We're under no obligation to treat this like any other rainout for the benefit of your playoff planning. Granderson says that losing an off day is "not an option"? Well guess what, it is an option, it happens all the time when there are rainouts.

This Yankee fan intimated that the rest of the league is laughing at the Orioles for being a-holes. I say fans of teams out of the race are probably applauding us for not rolling over to their every whim. And of course, in an alternate universe, where the Yanks are in last place and the Red Sox are battling for a pennant, Steinbrenner and friends would laugh in Boston's face if the Sox suggested rescheduling a game in order to better their playoff chances. What a joke. I hope the media pursue this and talk to executives from other teams. I wonder what they would think? The press really should be eviscerating the Yankees for this, but I bet they will either ignore it or criticize the Orioles for being incalcitrant sore losers.

I haven't been a huge fan of everything Buck has done this year, but if he is a part of this, then kudos to him. Girardi is has the most smug sense of entitlement I have ever seen in a sports figure, and he has apparently spread that to his team.

Girardi must lead the league in tears shed.

Seriously, I feel like I've heard him complaining about one thing or another all year long.

    • Interesting nugget... I googled Grand Ole Opry to make sure I spelled it right (Thought there was an apostrophe in there somewhere but no...) Anyways... First link I trusted was Wiki. In the first paragraph it said the GOO was started in 1925! KDKA started in late 1920 (Pres. Harding election results.) GOO was only 4+ years after that! I would have guessed mid 30's maybe but 1925... that's REALLY in radio's infancy!   In 1925 I would guess there were MAYBE a couple hundred radios TOTAL within a 50 mile radius of Nashville. Well before the TVA, most of the region didn't even have electricity.
    • Something on the Front Page reminded me of this 1956 joint. There's a couple versions of this on youboob, just snagged a different one from 1965 at the Grand Ole Opry. I LOVE the fiddle player just STYLIN' for the camera. 😛    
    • While Lamar did play better than RG3, keep in mind the league context.  He had a 121 Rating+ (basically OPS+ for passer rating, adjusted for that season's averages. Over 100 is good, less is bad.)  Lamar's 2019 was 128.  So Lamar is still better, but that was RG3 as a rookie.  Who knows how he would have done if he didn't get hurt/if he was drafted by an org not owned by Dan Snyder.   That said, I don't think it's reasonable to use RG3's injury problems as a reason not to sign Lamar long term.  I think that they were specific to RG3 and the team he played for. (I think the Football Team horribly mismanaged him.)   In general running QBs havent had high injury risk, any more than regular QBs.  Look at Steve Young, Randall Cunningham, Russell Wilson, Newton, Culpeper, VIck.  All have been fairly durable, certainly no bigger an injury risk than any other QB.  There is some risk that some injuries are going to be more damaging to Lamar's career because of his reliance on his athleticism, but given that many running QBs have stayed productive into their 30s I think this risk is relatively low. I don't think Vick is a great comp because he didn't really figure out how to be a passer until after he came back from his jail sentence.  Vick's best Rating+ pre-jail/suspension is 104, which is worse than Lamar's 2020.  And that's taking 6 Vick seasons compared to 3 Lamar seasons. I think Deshaun Watson checks off more boxes as a good comp, because of the recency of his contract, his performance, his playoff (lack of) success, and his playing style. If we're being realistic, Lamar has no real comparables.  There isn't a QB in NFL history that generates as much true dual-threat value as Lamar.  I think this actually is a problem when trying to figure out how much to pay him.  He's got the intangibles, sure (at least when it comes to regular season play) but with no real comps, it's kind of impossible to project his development/future performance. We know that the Ravens don't really throw the ball much, but in 2019 they were pretty damn efficient at it, and in 2020 they were middle-of-the-pack.  But when you can run the ball for 6-10 yards a carry, it kind of eliminates the need to throw the ball.  Imagine how good you'd have to be throwing the ball to make it a better proposition than running in most game situations.  And we also don't know how much his running ability affects his passing game.  And there's no way to know that until he can't run anymore.  Which isn't happening for 4-5 years barring injury. Even if it's risky, I think you really have no choice but to pay him, especially if you can get a contract with an out after his age-28 or 29 season.  It's easy to point to our mistake with thinking Flacco was worth an extension, but that's no reason to deny Lamar his extension, especially given that he's already shown the ability to singlehandedly carry us into the playoffs, even if he has struggled once there.  Flacco never carried this team in the regular season the way Lamar does.  In fact it was our multiple HOFers on the other side of the ball that carried Flacco into the postseason so he could be the hero for a couple games.  Credit to him for stepping up in January, but someone has to get us there, and we don't have anyone else who can do that.  The chance that we find someone in the draft that can do that is not that great.  Certainly lower than the chance that Jackson is going to take us to the SB.  I guess we could talk swapping him for someone like Deshaun Watson, but I just don't know how plausible that really is.
    • Lol, you gotta wait until spring training for those gems.
    • Well, now we know why Jim Hunter became redundant.
    • Brob was one of those let go.  I will miss him!  But he  remains as an "ambassador" as does Demper.  
    • I must have missed it, but I haven't seen anyone mention B-rob. Is he gone? I thought I heard him on some broadcasts last summer.
