4/6/2012: OPENING DAY - Orioles vs. Twins

Recommended Posts

Why? Johnson hits lefties better than Betemit does. It makes more sense this way.

Reimold should almost always be starting over Chavez, especially on Opening Day.

What do you do with your time now that you won't be manning the OH seat at OPACY? Doing PBP here? You need to write a book like Boy Howdy - maybe one about message board mania - ya know - JTrea, atomic, oldfan, etc. Bring us the personalities that make this MB tick..

Good question! I'm not really sure yet. Just watching the games on TV (or not watching them) like everyone else, I guess. I may be writing an occasional recap for Camden Chat, but not every day. I'll have a lot more free time this year, that's for sure.

Baby Nolan swinging for the fences for AAA-Norfolk in 2009 before he came up. :)

I didn't realize that Johnson hits lefties better than Betemit. Are we to expect Betemit to see righties more often than Johnson does? If healthy, I'd prefer to go with Johnson over Betemit. Take advantage of his bat before he goes on the DL.

Not worried about Reimold starting. But we know he'll start the next two games, that's why I said to a lesser extent.

BTW, where'd you see that lefties were starting on Saturday and Sunday? I thought it was Liriano (a lefty) on Saturday and Liam Hendriks (a righty) on Sunday.

Can't wait to watch Willingham or Doumit try to field the ball in the OF

When I watched this live, I laughed just about the most I've ever laughed at anything, especially baseball-related.

You are correct according to MLB.com. I hadn't seen the probables listed and was going by a depth chart that had Duensing listed third.

O's Extra is blacked out for some odd reason for me. I am pretty pissed off by this. If for some stupid reason the game is blacked out I may lose it.

    • 44,003 for the last three games for 1.3 million.Paid attendance should be close.Really nothing to be excited about but understandable. The last two years the Orioles have lost more games at home then any time ever in a 162 game season.Not sure if it is ever..Mets and Tigers both lost 107 at home consecutively . Tough to watch such bad home team baseball. Still would be the worst average hone attendance since 1978 and of course worst ever at Camden Yards.
    • Do you have a link to this pipeline article?
    • Haha I had totally forgotten.
    • I have the same issues, bad back (and down my right leg) and rotator cuffS. Doesn't wake me up tho. Yes, because of beer I sleep like a baby. I do however wake up start awake many times after 5 or 6 hours. Just from deep sleep to wide awake. I've learned to just get up, fire up my computer and waste some time, Not one drop of coffee. Take my morning drugs, several of which help or cause sleep. Go back to bed in 2 hours or stay up and take a nap in the afternoon. Tossing and turning in bed is never going to be sleep. I can't multi quote it right but I like waking up and having to go to the potty. Every night please! Let's play two! Makes the night seem longer to me.
    • Good points Drungo! I like the idea of working backwards from the desired outcomes of a system. Goal 1: Service time should no longer be a deciding factor in free agency or player promotion. I think automatic free agency after the age 27 season would be good (or after age 23 if they've never made it to the majors), with a better compensation system worked out between the team that signs and the team that loses the guy in free agency. Maybe a % of the contract value? Goal 2: Significantly reduce the bloated, inefficient system. Limit minor league affiliates to 2 full season teams, 1 short season team, and whatever overseas academies they want. Pay the minor leaguers better. Cut the draft in half (20 rounds).
    • As long as it isn't DJ on horseback! Otherwise I'd worry that the ball would hit the horse square in the forehead, risking career-ending injury to the glove (not whip)-wielding jockey as its knees buckled.
