Ok. So it is the Yankees.

Recommended Posts

1997 was the last time the Orioles finished ahead of the Yankees in the standings. Last year they were tied and the team finished two games back in 2012.

The streak has to stop this year. Must.

I think I blocked that out of my mind. And I completely agree.

Yankees lose. We're six up on both the Yanks and Jays with seven weeks and one day remaining.

It's hard to not start getting cocky.

Girardi has done a real good job with the team he has. Hate them but they stay in the pennant race and he should be manager of the year.

HELL TO THE NO!!! ;):D

Seriously though, it should come down to Buck and Melvin again, like 2012. Hopefully Buck gets it this time. But, still a lot of season to play, we'll see...

If he somehow got that team in the playoffs as a WC then yes as much as I hate to say it, he would deserve the hardware. He won't though IMO, eventually it (injuries) will catch up to that team.

I think this might be Bucks year.....if I am voting I look at what he has had to deal with like the loss of MW, Chris Davis being off, and various other problems and compare that to the problems that Melvin has had, being handed two Aces throughout the season to compliment an already good staff. Look at that way and its a no brainer it should be Buck if we win the division.

Bullcrap. With their payroll and drunken sailor spending, a complete chimp could keep them "in the pennant race".

Buying tanaka, Beltran, McCann and Ellsbury in the offseason and you want to act like he's done something special?

Give me a break.

No other team has the lead that we do in their division. We are not in the most parity ridden division. We are in the strongest one. And we are winning it.

And the Yanks are 2 games back in the loss column to KC while the Jays are 3 back for the last wildcard spot.

    • You are right..it’s not the answer I’m looking for because it’s not an answer to the question you were asked. If I ask you, what is your favorite color and you tell me a banana, that is an answer and it’s not one I’m looking for..that doesn’t mean in insulting you, it just means that trying to discuss this with you when you clearly don’t want to answer the questions and you want your agenda is a waste of time.  
    • Two milion?  You better check again.
    • I think people also have to remember where guys are in their careers. Diaz has almost 1500 MiL at bats.  He has over 700 at bats in AA alone and he has an OpS of 834 there.  Elias said that he would have been in AAA in 2019 had he not had injuries.  He doesn’t need to go to AA again.  He doesn’t have anything left there to prove.  He also just turned 24, so he is getting too old for the league anyway. Rutschman is an elite college bat.  He turns 23 in a few months.   By all accounts, he has looked great in the camps of 2020. You don’t just keep elite guys that are advanced in age and approach in the minors for that long.  It doesn’t happen and it shouldn’t happen.  If he was a 20 year old kid out of HS, it would be different.  But he’s not.  Now, he does have to perform a lot better than what we saw in 2019 but again, that goes without saying. Give him some time down there, make sure you gain the extra year this year and perhaps give him enough time to avoid Super 2 since he has so little pro experience but come early June or so, he should be ready to be here, if not sooner. The reality is, im fine with bringing him up as soon as they gain the extra year of service time in 2021.  I’m sure they will give him more time than just a few weeks though.
    • So I'm too stupid to "Comprehend" what you are asking.....But your not throwing insults! Same old Shtick!!!! I said that when Manicini was promoted it wasn't after a season where he didn't have a competitive AB. There is nothing wrong with that answer other than that is the answer you were looking for! I said Diaz season where he hit .262/807 was at AA and not AAA. So therefore the 2 circumstances are the same. Anyone with a little bit of intelligence can understand these differences (SEE I CAN DO IT ALSO!). Also ..... Diaz was a highly sought after IFA that got a 2 million dollar gift from the Dodgers that we received as a part of the Machado deal. I'd assume you'd agree that expectations should be higher for a high priced IFR or a #1 overall selection like Adley compared to your expectations for an 8th round pick that received a nominal bonus. People were "Meh" about getting Stallings (a 5th rounder) for Iglesias
    • https://www.houstonchronicle.com/texas-sports-nation/astros/article/Astros-trade-for-pitcher-Hector-Velazquez-Orioles-15442933.php You might be thinking this guy.  He was traded so fast he probably never hit the 60 man.
    • You don't think it would be shortsighted to rely on traditional counting stats to determine if a player is worthy of promotion? why even have an analytics department?
    • Zero teams ever have had a lineup composed entirely of “complete hitters”.
