Patrick's First Game Ever at O.P.A.C.Y.

In 2005, my brother and I made the 4-hour trip from Brewster to Baltimore to see the Orioles play the Yankees.

The game was rained out, and we were relegated to watching them play the Indians the next day.

But that was just the beginning.

We spent the next 2 hours walking all over the city because we forgot which garage we parked our car in.

Finally we went to a nearby hotel to go to sleep, and it cost more than $200 for the night.

The next afternoon we continued to look for the car for another 2 or 3 hours, with no luck.

We went to the Orioles PR department, and a very nice lady by the name of Joyce somehow gave us an educated guess of which garage our car was parked in ...... and she was correct !!! :eektf:

Needless to say, the game itself was anti-climactic for us, as finding our car gave us a new lease on life (literally AND figuratively.)

Mark Trumbo (29) - .239/.286/.347, 80 OPS+

Austin Jackson (28) - .247/.291/.348, 82 OPS+

Logan Morrison (27) - .220/.297/.364, 88 OPS+

Dustin Ackley (27) - .215/.270/.366, 79 OPS+, traded

Mike Zunino (24) - .170/.227/.299, 48 OPS+


Nelson Cruz (34) - .324/.389/.604, 178 OPS+

All of the above should be in their prime and have underperformed their averages. Old Man Cruz is having a career year -- after having a career year last year. Baseball's a funny sport.

Not including a throwing error by the 3rd baseman, Villanueva allowed 2 base-runners in the first 7 innings ...... a walk, and a single.

At the time of the error, there were 2 outs in the 7th inning, and Villanueva was at 83 pitches. He promptly got the next batter to fly out on 4 pitches, essentially getting the 4th out of the inning.

He then ceded 2 more singles to start the 8th inning before manager Ron Johnson took him out of the game.

Richard Rodriguez then came into the game to record a triple play to end the inning !!!

21 OUTS: 7 Flyouts, 5 Groundouts, 4 Strikeouts, 4 Lineouts, 1 Popout

That was the Tides' first triple play since June of 1997.

    • The one difference between Means and Kremer is that Means has a plus-plus pitch that hitters can't hit even when they know it's coming. Kremer's best pitch is his curveball, but I'm not sure it's in the same category as Means' change.  I have some concern that major league hitters will be able to differentiate the breaking ball from the fastball and lay off his curve, particularly when he throws the slow one. His curveball reminded me of Dylan's Bundy's curve in the minors. It worked well there but it never was the same pitch at the major league level. Kremer has some talent, but he really needs that slider and change to come around and be consistent pitches for him if he's to stay a starter. If not, I could see him moving to relief, getting a few ticks on the fastball and be a piece out of the pen.
    • I love that movie! I have the DVD but I also have a copy I got off youtube. full movie, one file.     Came to post this.  
    • Interesting list and write ups.    Overall, he’s pretty high on our pitchers.    Let’s hope he’s right.   Elias hasn’t spent any high picks on pitching as of yet, so most of the guys on the list were inherited from the old regime.   
    • I only watched bits and pieces, but Maryland's offensive sets kill me sometimes.  Guys stand still much or dribble the air out of the ball.  I agree that Stix doesn't seem to want the ball that much.  I've mentioned his lack of a post game dozens of times so I won't go there (I guess I just did).  I don't think he has the best hands either.  I'd like to see him go up strong a dunk it over a dude like once.  As a senior, Cowan still makes some really bad mistakes.  There was sequence where he got double-teamed and picked up his dribble and threw it straight to the opposing defender.  Dribble out of that pressure dude and make a better pass. Wiggins missed some easy ones tonight.  He is a much better spot up shooter.  Occasionally he will flash with a drive.  He had an off night.  Lindo played some bad defense from what I saw. Hopefully they learn from this.  They weren't going to go undefeated.  I believe Penn State is a good team and potential sleeper come March.  
    • Turgeon has never beaten a major conference team in the tourney in his 22 year coaching career. He's a good recruiter but he just never maximizes that talent. Main issues with this team are Stix inside and lack of consistent shooting. Don't see either of these changing much.
    • Sayonara, Adam!   I’m sure you’ll be a great ambassador for US baseball.    I hope you and your family have a blast over there.
