Tracking Ex Oriole Thread

Recommended Posts

This got me to thinking, I wonder what two Orioles teammates played the most games together?   The answer is Brooks Robinson and Boog Powell, who played 1,718 games together.   That’s pretty incredible.    I don’t know exactly how many games Nick and Adam played together, but I’d estimate about 950.

Would have guessed Brooks and perhaps Belanger.  I'd imagine 2nd and 3rd place would include more combinations of Brooks and another Oriole.

I’m assuming Cal and Brady are probably second to Brooks and Boog.    Brady played 1,759 games for the O’s, nearly 1,500 of which were during Cal’s streak.

I have no issue saying that guys who tested positive for steroids were PED users and probably for most of their careers. 

Aw come on...really? ;)

Total games played as an O:

Cal 3001

Brooks 2896

Belanger 1,962

Murray 1,884

Powell 1,763

Anderson 1,759

Blair 1,700

Jones 1,613

Singleton 1,446

Bumbry 1,428

Markakis 1,365

Roberts 1,326

I’ll stop there.   Anyone combo near the top probably combines with Cal or Brooks.    I’d guess it’s close between Cal/Brady and Brooks/Blair for no. 2.    Belanger played 5 years (467 games) after Brooks retired, plus a couple of years when Brooks wasn’t playing a ton.

Singleton overlapped 100% with Bumbry, so they are probably pretty high up there, though Bumbry usually didn’t play 25+ games a season so there are probably a lot of games Singleton played that Bumbry didn’t.

Don't overlook Boog and Belanger.  They overlapped pretty neatly.

Well, not really, relatively speaking. Belanger played 8 seasons and 916 games after Boog left.    I think Boog/Blair might be higher.  

Some others that would be pretty high are Eddie/Dauer and Eddie/Dempsey.     Eddie rarely missed a game while he was here, and those two overlapped with him entirely except in ‘76 when Eddie was still in the minors.

Interestingly, Adam Jones’ sprint speed is up .5 ft/sec, to 27.2, slightly above league average.    Not sure if he did something to work on his speed this offseason, or whether he was playing hurt last year, or is it just a function of it being early in the year before his legs are tired?

I wonder if there’s any data on whether sprint speeds tend to go down as the season progresses?

FWIW, right now Richie Martin ranks 8th in sprint speed at 29.3 and Cedric Mullins ranks 13th at 29.1.

Rochester and the O's had a 40 year affiliation, that worked pretty well until the PA and Syd Thrift era.. when the minors were treated as an inconvenience not a way to insure success. This relationship created a large O's fan base in Yankee territory. Just because it is North of the Mason-Dixon line does not make it Canada. 

Yeah I loved the Red Wings team and I've been stopped probably 30-40 times in my life in an Os hat by people who grew up/live in Rochester who miss the team (at least the Orioles part).   I was mostly commenting on distance..I mean, customs aside, its probably easier to get a player from Ottawa to Balmer than from Rochester.  I have a ton of late 80s, early 90s Red Wings team baseball card sets that used to be worth a decent amount back when trading cards still had more value than an Esskay casing.

Rochester had lots of guys on their squad in the early 70s that couldnt break into the bigs, almost like a cult following for them. :) :)

Lots of New York fans actually do not love the Yankees, crazy as it sounds. King George alienated many fans over the years with his decisions and antics.

New Jersey is Yankee country.

Why would it be easier dealing with Ottawa? I am pretty sure Rochester is closer.  There are also regular flights between Rochester and BWI.
