  1. 1. How do you feel about the Yankees?

    • They are pure evil
    • They're not that bad

Can't vote, which is probably a good thing, as I'd have a hard time picking between the choices. I dislike the Yankees more than any other team, but "hate" is such a strong word. I've got too few years left to waste any of it hating a mere baseball team.

I will continue to exult in every Yankee misfortune, of course.

And I have to respect some of the Yankee players. How can you not respect Derek Jeter or Andy Pettite? I have no difficulty despising Alex Rodriguez and I don't particularly like Teixeira either, but there are Yankees players I would have loved to have had on the Cardinals.

I dislike that goofy expression on Swisher's face, which I assume is mostly due to his chaw of tobacco, but I think I'd respect him outside of that.

Why do I dislike the Yankees organization? Well, there's their contribution to destroying the salary structure in baseball, and their ownership attitude of being willing to spend almost anything to buy champions, instead of building teams the hard way like everybody else. It also has something to do with them being the only team with more championships than the Cardinals -- a LOT more.

Just curious.

I haven't seen Beaner around in a while, so this may be unanimous.

Hey buddy,

Been a while..

Of course I dislike the Yankees, i'm a die hard Orioles fan since birth.

However, I like MR above, have a TON of respect for Derek Jeter, Mo Rivera, and guys like Bernie Williams (how could you not) from the recent teams. That's all. I "hate" the idea of the Yankees far more than i "hate" certain players.

Ha, just some good natured ribbing.;) Good to see you around. What a season, huh?

I do like Rivera and Bernie, but as you know we'll have to differ on Jeter.

I hate the Yankees more because the Redsox run seems to be over for now. Their mega dork fans will not be coming in as much droves to Camden Yards chanting "Your not our rivals" anymore. Because frankly they suck and we are a rival again.

    • LF Hays made a nice catch for Zimmerman. In Game 1 Mountcastle could not quite get an early count foul pop by Meadows in a PA that I think ended up a 10 pitch walk.  I don’t think OAA reads that foul ball but it did seem like one some LF could get.  Long way but also big hang time.

    • Just got through the DVR, and here's the lead.  My goodness - that mustache.  It goes right to the childhood McGregor Flanagan reptilian brain stem.  It's hard to see almost anything else. At one look, I'd say it's maybe an interesting call between him and Cobb for Game 5 next year, while whatever shenanigans/surgeries with Baumann, Hall, Rodriguez (and to a lesser extent Smith/Lowther) are waited out. I heard the Driveline last offseason report, but that hits me wrong for 4-pitch mix guys.  I think I think the devil's bargain of the Driveline-type proposition is you give feel and get dominance.  I see Savant had him at 30 FB, 10 SL, 10 CH, so will be curious to see if a 4th pitch comes out in Turn 2. Great story, and could certainly be a once through order or up/down guy for peak Rutschman teams but would hazard a guess that his IP count medium to long term is probably negatively correlated with team success.  Akin has splashed the pool to grow the group to 6 of "SP's I hope make 150+ starts/OpenerFollows for the 2021 Orioles", but I think Lopez, Smith and Lowther are more my 7/8/9 guys, never mind the Fulmers and Stewarts of the waiver wire. I do hope Zimmermann and all those others have somewhere to continue hot (warm, at least) games in October, whether in Bowie, or at some Super Arizona Fall League to be named later.  October/November Super Arizona Fall League could be like the Futures Game every day if anything could be concocted after the World Series.  Darn tootin I want to see Grayson Rodriguez trying to get Wander Franco out then.  
    • Not an impressive debut. Zimmermann's command was bad. I hope he settles down for his next appearance. Smith is a good prospect, but he only pitched 30 innings in AA last year and that was the highest he's gotten in the minors. Zimmermann, Akin, and Kremer all logged at least 150 innings between AA and AAA before this year.  Plus, 40 man roster considerations are always a factor. Zimmermann and Kremer both needed to be added this winter anyway to avoid getting picked in the Rule 5 draft. Smith does not till next winter.
    • Zimmerman's stuff, I was impressed enough. Command, quite another conversation. If he can command that stuff, I think he's okay. Good stuff, no command, see, Cabrera, D.
    • I thought Wojo looked like a hard rocker, lead singer of something like "Ancient Leviticus Ceremonies" or such. Also, today was my first look at Zimmerman, and I was thinking "why is an actor from a 70's cop show throwing out the first pitch?"
