vs. YANKEES, 9/25

Recommended Posts


Jeter's eyes are red, and he's tearing up.

I'm actually feeling a bit of affection for him right now.

I thought that I would never do that.

Get a hold of yourself OFFNY!!!

Yep. Now I must avoid all sports television for the next 48 hours. But by then they will be gearing up for JETER'S LAST GAME EVER.

This may be it. I don't know, but I would think that ending probably would make you think hard about that.

14 years, 14 years, they beat us up, it's our turn to beat up them, ruin it for them, and Showalter gets sentimental. OUTRAGEOUS.

Exactly. But you are "vile" for saying that.

At least MLB Network is there to provide oral favors for Jeter for the rest of the night.

What else is new? He's gotten oral favors all year long even though he's had a terrible year.

Boy I hated that. I had it on pause right after the winning run scored. Just didn't want to see the celebration. But I finally relented and caught up as I wanted to hear what Buck and Palmer had to say. Mixed feelings. Meaningless game for us, but we've been there, too (though not a direct parallel) when the O's ruined Boston's season at the end of 2011. We were jubilant on the field. They surely hated it. I just wish we'd been the spoilers tonight after the great comeback. I had the game pretty much written off with the way the defense had been playing. Then Jones and Pearce sucked me back into thinking it meant something.

Only positive I see is that it shows the O's still have the fight in 'em after a sloppy game. And it was classy to see the O's saluting Jeter and Jeter returning the favor. Other than that, I hate losing.

I'm just pissed this is going to be shown for years and years ... and it's against us.

As was (and still is) the "Munson game," which was televised live on Monday Night Baseball just 4 days after he died in a plane crash.

If the Orioles AT LEAST win the pennant and make it to the World Series this year, this game will not stain this magical season any more than that game did our magical, American League Championship 1979 season.

    • Bleier trade continues to bite the O's last night.  Fry  could not find the plate especially against right-handed batters. Needing to face three batter in not Fry's game.    It didn't affect the outcome because the O's didin't  hit.  However, Fry does not look up to being the 2nd lefties in the pen  which shows how much the O's miss Bleier.  Fry would be a candidate to be sent down but there is no lefty to replace him so he will probably stay in the majors.
    • SummerSlam ‘92 is on FS1.  Quarantine + Nostalgia = Mullet for backwardsk ?
    • I missed another game. My sleep schedule sleep patterns are SOOOOOOOO screwed up... I laid down for a quick nap before the game about 4:30. When I woke up at MIDNIGHT I had missed the entire thing. Turned on the TV to watch the 11:30 replay and THANK GOD the Gnats are back playing! They're the replay tonight... fml     So.... I'm not going to read the thread or the board. Or Roch. It's 1:30 am. I'm having my "morning" glass of coffee (yes BIG TALL GLASS) and I'm going to watch the 9 am MASN replay "live". So I have THAT going for me. 🙃 GO O'S!!!!
    • And now for something completely different...   NSFW https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpx_VXRG_qc  
    • Now that does make sense: greater risk, greater reward. So do healthy pitchers make more than healthy batters? Serious question.
    • On his pro-rated salary, Cobb would earn @ $4.5MM the rest of this season. That would be nothing for a contending team to take on if they were sold on him putting them over the top. But I can't imagine being so desperate on August 4, 10 games into a 60 game season if I were a decision maker to take on the entirety of his contract.  If a team really wants to gamble a little bit of cash on Cobb to win this year's WS, they may be wrangled into taking half the burden on the 2021 salary, while the Orioles pay half of this season's $4.5MM remaining. This is starting to sound too good to be true!
