Just Keep on Winning the Series

Recommended Posts

Great start so far but really need to fix this Gausman situation. They will need him; good thing Bundy and Miley are pitching extremely well.

It's nice to get 2/3, but sometimes you have to slam the door. When we're in September fighting for our playoff lives, we're going to wish we had a few more sweeps.

I'll always take 2 of 3, but it's uncanny how this team can't seem to sweep anyone, especially on a Sunday ...... Can't do it.

I don't think that anything can be quantified as uncanny after a team has played only 17 games of a 162-game season.

If it is late August or early September, and the Orioles still have not swept a 3-game series, then I would concede that it is at least somewhat uncanny for a solid team like the Orioles never having been able to secure a single 3-game sweep in a season which is mostly made up of 3-game series.

It's not late August or early September. It's not even May 1st yet. So to me, there is nothing uncanny about the Orioles' only sweep of the season so far having been the 2-games that they swept from the Blue Jays to open the season.

I don't really think you can ask for better than the 2nd best record in baseball right now. 

Sure you can... you can ask for the best!  1st place or nothing!

(didn't say it was reasonable)

Yeah, I don't buy into this argument.  They're starting off the year with one hell of a stretch against the entire division, and they've either won or split every series so far.  A sweep is great, doesn't matter who it's against, but if you don't win the series you were never in position to sweep it in the first place.  As has been the case every year they haven't made the playoffs since 2012, if this team doesn't make the playoffs this year it'll be because of what they didn't do in August and September, when it really matters.

There seems to be a few misguided posters who either think the O's take it easy after winning the first two games of a series... or have fallen prey to some "curse" that prevents sweeps. I say this because I've seen numerous folks complaining about it already this year.

A sweep isn't easy. Just because you won the first two games doesn't make the third game any easier. You're still facing a competitive MLB opponent.

Truer words never spoken. Just keep laying the wood to the series. Going on a "hot streak" is just for casuals and stroke their happiness. Just do better and keep winning the series!

Great job so far. Tall order to fill with Gopher Ball and Ubaldo pitching the first two of the next series. Maybe we'll get an early Christmas Miracle.

Should have taken 2 out of 3 but it's ok, kind of evens out with the game that Tampa blew on Thursday.

On to Boston, hopefully Tillman and Britton are close to return.

    • “Major League Baseball is completely comfortable with the Orioles’ coaching designations for the 2020 season, which are not only consistent with the terms of the pension plan but were approved in advance by MLB and shared prior to the start of the season with representatives from the Major League Baseball Players Association. The suggestion that there is an ongoing investigation that could result in discipline is simply false.” https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2020/10/report-elias-and-holt-linked-to-potential-pension-fraud.html Oh.   That’s very different.   Never mind.  
    • o   This game wound up being even more wild than that 1979 All-Star game ........       o
    • Big story becomes non story.  All in one hour.  That was fast.
    • I’ve made multiple points multiple,times. I made the same points during the 47-win season, and I made them multiple times. I’m moving on..
    • Oh don’t worry, popped up on my screen and I’ve already watched it about 10 times. The camera work is terrible. I can’t believe that they can’t use their cameramen more effectively. But it’s a great play. I wonder if they’re going to score 2 errors in the play or if nobody cares anymore, ha ha
    • There was nothing in existence at the time to support the emboldened statement.  Certainly not his minor league career, nor his performance in the few weeks of spring training that Elias could see.  You are basing everything you say on hindsight.  Please provide your evidence that shows that Yaz was something other than what he had shown himself to be in the minors BEFORE the trade was made.  Until you do that, I'm afraid that you just aren't convincing anyone.  That others, most of us in fact, in hindsight, wish we hadn't traded Yaz is quite obvious, but that doesn't mean Elias failed in any way at the time, given the information available to him at the time.  There was simply no outcry from people upset about the trade at the time.  It was pretty much a ho-hum deal.
    • It seemed like every important AB in this game -- and that was an awful lot of them -- had at least one missed call by the home plate umpire.
