O's offer vouchers to Saturday's ticket buyers - Monday AND Tuesday Games PPD

Recommended Posts

Last night, the Bullets did something that they had never done before in their entire 5t-year franchise history (1961-61 through the present.)

They swept a best-of-7 game series.

Previously, the only sweeps that the Bullets had ever gotten were mini series sweeps (best-of-3 series), the last of which was in the 1981-82 season when they swept the New Jersey 2 games to 0.

It most certainly is. Perhaps what was meant is no dissenting political opinions.
Or it meant that burning cop cars and CVS stores and slashing fire hoses sure doesn't do wonders for the tourist industry. Edited by TonySoprano

I wonder what you people closer to the city think about all this but as a foreigner I find the Baltimore City management to be pretty unimpressive. It's a bad situation but they look ineffectual.

How you can let people just all drive up and loot a mall without any police trying to stop it is unbelievable to me. That was embarrassing.

Responsible adults marching hand in hand in a nonviolent protest against the protesters would be a beautiful thing. But wow is it dangerous suggesting people take to the streets to fight this. Great thing if it happens but I hope everyone stays cool.

Councilman Brandon Scott called for the adult citizens to join him out on the streets taking the neighborhoods back and standing their ground against the looting "Thug cowards."
The Mayor used the same term, “Too many people have spent generations building up this city for it to be destroyed by thugs, who in a very senseless way are trying to tear down what so many have fought for.”

One of the cool things about instant communication is that I can go to pieces in real time. All my Baltimore friends, please stay safe.

Love from the great American Southwest,

That we are all safeguarded by our govt (police) from bad people is a fallacy. An illusion. Society starts to break down when that illusion flickers.

Just watched the mayor's press conference on CNN. Shocking…..totally amateur press conference. One guy actually told adults to get out on the streets tonight to try and confront the rioters, and talk sense to them. Genius. I worry it's going to be a bad bad night…..I really hope not.

Looks like no home games at all this week, at least at night.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake declared a week-long curfew to be in effect from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. in the city in an effort to curb further violence and rioting. This curfew is in addition to the juvenile curfew already in effect for the city.

    • It would be cheaper and possibly more efficient to just buy the Rays.....
    • They will settle for no less than Rendon, Cole and Strasburg out of Cashman. Or maybe a trade for Lindor. 
    • I find Girardi annoying, but I think he was a good manager.    I think Boone has done a good job as well.    Those poor Yankee fans will have to live with 7 playoff appearances, 3 division titles and 4 ALCS appearances over the last decade.     And 27 straight winning seasons.   
    • All Roch said was, “I’d expect another catcher to join the organization, even if for depth purposes.“ I think it’s a foregone conclusion that we’ll add a catcher or two before spring training.    It doesn’t mean that whoever they acquire will slot above the players you named.    That will be sorted out in spring training.   
    • I feel like there were several seasons in the last decade where Girardi got more wins out of that team than he should have.  I can't remember which years, but there were a few.  I felt like he managed every game as if it was Game 7 of the WS, using Betances in every single medium to high leverage situation.  Even in spite of their payroll, there were a few years where the on-paper talent wasn't quite up to their normal standards....yet they still won a lot of games.  I think no matter who is managing, the Yankees will always have their fair share of players who outperform their norms simply by putting on that uniform.  This year was a little more pronounced, but we have seen other sports teams over the years have very high payrolls and still land under .500 because things just don't work out.  I think the 2012 Red Sox lost 90+ games and then won the WS the next year.  The Yankees never finish under .500, no matter what.  That is pretty impressive.
    • Everyone was a fan of Severino when he put up an 818 OPS in the first half.
    • The Surprise Saguaros clinched the AFL West title over the weekend.    It appears likely they’ll face the Salt River Rafters on Saturday for the League title.    If Kremer pitches today, he’ll be available to start the championship game, though I’m not sure he’d be chosen.
