OFFNY

vs. ROYALS, 10/15 (A.L.C.S., Game Four)

Recommended Posts

I am actively rooting against them in the WS. Not because they beat us, but because I feel they have lacked class and I find much of their team unlikeable. Just hope it's the Giants now

Quite so. I was hoping for a well-fought series that real baseball fans would be able to enjoy, not a cakewalk for a bunch of douchebags and bandwagoneers.

Thank you all fellow game threaders (both those with positive and negative inclinations :D). It was a fun season, and y'all provided this dislocated O's fan someone besides my cat to talk to during the games. See you next year!

One of my best pals is a KC fan and he's been very classy in our discourse on Facebook and elsewhere. But I'm remaining mum on the rest of the postseason to him. I've really grown to dislike the showboating and chest beating of the Royals. I thought I could put my support behind them as I'm an AL guy. Basically, I don't like any of the teams left in it. Probably some likable Giants and Cardinals, but I'll just watch it for the baseball interest and not really pull for anyone. And if anything, I'll pull against KC very quietly.

It is interesting how so many people have jumped on the KC bandwagon. I clearly remember Yost chiding the fans for not supporting their team by showing up at the park when they were edging closer to Detroit in the AL Central a month or so ago.

Edited to add: Thanks to the O's for a wonderful season. It was thrilling.

Just revel in the upcoming sweep by the Giants or Cardinals.

Exactly what A's fans said the Angels would do, and then exactly what Angels fans said the O's would do.

Can't let all offseason go by with the last post being made by a Royal fan.

Absolutely. If they come back, I'll put words in their mouth.

Like I said earlier, the Royals are now on my permanent S-list.

This is the biggest sports disappointment of my lifetime that I can clearly remember (Super Bowl XVIII, while in my lifetime, is a bit hazy). I felt uneasy before the series began, and once they didn't bounce back in Game 2, I figured that was it, but I wanted to be wrong. Not even one MF-ing win. A bed-crapping for the ages. Simply ridiculous.

This tops '96 and '97 by far. I want nothing but pain for Kansas City and all their fans, and I want it never to end. I want them henceforth consigned to baseball hell, with no hope for returning.

Why not say how you really feel? Lol.

I don't know about you guys, but when my team loses, I hold a grudge--for a long time. Thus I hope the Royals get the crap kicked out of them in the World Series. None of this "Since we didn't win, I hope you guys do" crap. It ticked me off that so many people were behind K.C. because they haven't won it in a long time. Hello, they've won it more recently than we did!

Plus they play in a much easier division! We have to compete with Boston and NY's mammoth payroll, much more urgent for us.

    • You probably end up with Marvin Jones or somebody similar. Most WRs want to go somewhere where they feel their stats will increase not here imo
    • @Sports Guy has advocated for running his contract out another year or two until he proves he can be a better passer Im on the extreme unpopular side as it would take a real improvement in the playoffs that include a Super Bowl or Super Bowl appearance. So I’d run the contract out and them tag him twice. In either scenario he’s still getting paid
    • The same that you could put on any oline that had to deal with 5 to 7 players every play! Its the Ravens fault for not leaving the pistol formation that would allow the screen and more passes to be there. There were open receivers that Lamar missed. But, the formation again didn't help. The bolded part! He's the QB and they shoulder the load good or bad. In our case he's in control either passing or QB running 66% of the time. So its going to be more on him than on an offense that throws and runs 50/50. The drops didn't help but that happens some times to all teams
    • Ok ...Thanks   So I am not sure he's referring to injury. Even if he's not seriously injured running Quarterbacks dont tend to age well is the poster's point.   Vick played until he was 35 but wasn't a full time starter after 32. I think is pretty safe to assume you cant count on after 32. But that doesn't even matter right now.  
    • Its a good point the OP makes, there are a lot of question marks and I would suspect these teams aren't done yet either.  There is a reason the MFY just freed up $10 in space with the Ottavino trade.  They also have German and Montgomery who could help.
    • With the broadcast team announced...  Palmer, Brown, McDonald... okay! Arnold, Hollander, Long, Newman...  meh.  We'll give them some time. Garceau... my soul died a little.
    • Assuming most of the good Bowie pitchers have to try to do Norfolk world domination before maybe an Akin/Kremer sized sip, would anyone want Jake Arrieta at ANY price for the Sutcliffe things? Floor starting pitchers with little October upside are the one group (Happ, Quintana, Lester) of players falling far short of Fangraphs guesses among recent signees.   I somewhat suspect no one very good really wants 2021 Arrieta pitching for them, but as ever...we may have a job for some qualified major leaguer. He'd be more entertaining than a Milone clone, but does the regime feel he's anyone for Kremer, Akin, etc. to be around (non-Cobb category) for a year.
