Sure. Not history book history, but this is a significant pop culture moment. Absolutely.

That seems like a stretch to me. Why is this a pop culture moment for anyone other than Yankees fans?

If you are trying to win the game you walk Jeter and put the double play in order. They didn't care and allowed the ending too many people had overpaid to see this evening.

No, you don't walk Jeter. Maybe if there was a runner on third. But Jeter has been an out machine this year. You pitch to him in this situation every time.

Because, unfortunately, Yankee fans make up about 1/2 of the world's baseball fans.

Unfortunately, I will remember this game for a long time.

That sickens me.

As Baltimore sports fans, we have worse moments to remember. Cundiff/Evans, Ibanez, Jeter in 96'. All those moments were worse because they occurred in games that actually mattered.

Yeah no issue with not IBBing Jeter. If it's the Jeter of old sure. But not 600 OPS Jeter.

Simple question. Do you guys hate the Yankees more than you love baseball? This moment was great for the game.

What the Orioles have done this season and what they could have continued to demonstrate last night are also great for the game.

Orioles are going to the playoffs, Yankees are going home and Jeter had his moment....meh.

The point repeatedly made in this thread is that it's not a moment, but something that will be magnified into much more.

One good thing about the 2014 O's is that they seem to bounce back from bad losses well. After that Beltran walk off earlier in the year I was projecting disaster. I was wrong. Let's hope the trend continues.

This pretty much sums it up. The game was meaningless, unless you were one of those Orioles fans who believed we could win their last 4 games, and the Angles would lose their last 3 games, so we could lay claim to being the best team in baseball.

I'd walk Mario Mendoza or Mark Belanger with the winning run on second and 1 out to set up the double play and bring in our ground ball closer to get that chance.

I didn't even bother watching. Dunno why so many people are ao fired up. This game meant nothing to the O's. Right now we're just getting pieces in place for next Thursday.

    • Different situation ..... Mountcastle hit .312/.344/.527 in 544 at bats in 2019 at AAA. He was clearly ready and I'm not sure how you think the Bowie time impacted that. He started at the Bowie camp only because there was no AAA. He started at the Bowie camp to delay the clock.
    • Agreed.   But I would not say it’s impossible that Hess could become a credible major league pitcher.    Not too likely, but stranger things have happened.   
    • I think because of the way that 2020 went, level/placement will be more of a combination of scouting and performance than just performance. For Rutschman, that means that while you can justify starting him at lower levels, you also likely have enough to go on to start him in Baltimore on opening day if you really wanted. That argues for a AA assignment, though A+ wouldn't shock me I guess. On Diaz, I personally believe that he has already shown he's ready for AAA. So, for me, that means I'd assign him to AAA. From there, he has issues that he needs to work on, most notably his availability and production over time. He has flashed nicely at times, but then he inevitably has missed time for various reasons and tends to start slow upon return. That seems to have suppressed his stats. Also, I honestly think there's a red flag in there somewhere with Diaz. I think the O's like the talent more than the make up. If he's traded, I wouldn't be shocked at all. I also acknowledge that I'm reading between the lines here and have no strong evidence, for what it's worth.
    • Actually, you are right.   Not only was Hector Velazquez on the original 60 man roster so was Rob  Zastryzny.  I will add both of them to the OP. Good catch.
    • Hess and Arrieta should never be mentioned in the same sentence unless it to say they were both once drafted, developed and pitched for the Orioles.
    • 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.
