Are we going to get the game in tonight?

Recommended Posts

It's been raining all day long and it's not just a misty drizzle, either. It's moderate rainfall with very short periods of heavier rain. It hasn't stopped yet today. There's a low pressure center southeast of Baltimore

spinning up moisture and doesn't seem to be going anywhere in any hurry. Looks like it will be difficult to get this one in, but we may get a break tonight.

Orioles always wait longer then most teams so should be awhile before we know.

But, more rain in forecast tomorrow. :(

Just a small chance of thunderstorms for a couple hours. Most of the day is forecasted to be sunny. I think a double header on Saturday is by far the most likely scenario at this point.

I'd put the chances of tonight being played at less than 10%

This is making my ticket-buying decision much harder. I'm sitting 100 yards from OPACY and I'm sad because I know I'm probably not going to go tonight. :(

if you're a gambling man like myself, buy good seats super cheap right now on stub hub. If they end up playing, you might be able to resell them between 6-7pm for the $6-10 you paid. if not, you're out a couple bucks...$21 in my case

but if they play a day/night tomorrow....you just scored good seats for almost nothing...

True. There are some club level tix (covered!) that can be had on the CHEAP tonight. Thinking about it hard.

There are terrace box seats for $6 that are covered. I have no ability to go to the game tonight so I'm taking the gamble its rained out.

TRIPLE HEADER Mother's Day brawl. Come one come all.

My vote's for a winner-take-all 27 inning game on Sunday.

Looks like there's a window of a couple hours, lining up during gametime. It probably should be ppd, but they're probably try to get it in and it'll be ugly. Baseball is baseball though :noidea:

    • This is actually incorrect. As of now, there is no DH in the NL in 2021, so he wouldn’t have a ton of value to teams over there.  If NL teams knew the DH was happening for them in 2021, maybe they would have found a suitor. And we don’t know that someone won’t pay him 1-2M in 2021.  We just know that no one was willing to trade for him and pay him that money.  Big difference. In any case, he’s not expensive.  The average MLB salary in 2020 was almost 4.5M.  He would have been paid well under that number.  In fact, with MLB minimum salary close to 600k, he will get paid much closer to the minimum salary than the average salary.  So no, he’s not expensive at all.
    • Honestly, I think Kramer is the best bet.I don’t think taking a player like Diaz or a player like Santana who hasn’t played above Short season A.    Being forced to keep Davis again leaves the Os short already and taking another player who’s not ready and will likely struggle mightily at the plate doesn’t make sense.    According to MLB.com Santana ranks 45/45/45 in run field and arm. He over performed with the bat early but hit .267 /.337 /.329 in 2019. I can’t see how he would stick. As for Diaz,  he hit .264/.307/.430 ....He’d likely be worse than Ruiz.  
    • We  have seen this before.   Elias claims a guy and then passes him through waivers.   Or attempts to.   Shaw is no different from Hector Velazquez, Urena, Hanhold, or  Diplan,  He tried to do the same with Alberto but he got claimed and Elias had to reclaim him.    Shaw is cheap, has an option so adds organization flexibility and could be recalled as a DH if the O's have a bunch of injuries.   I don't think he stays on the major league roster just like these other waiver claims.  Nunez is a guy Elias had to make a call on whether he fit with all the other players that have more potential to hit and play better defense.  Was he worth the money and the roster spot?  Elias decided he was not.  The O's would not have the at bats available for him to be productive.
    • Well, all 30 Major League Baseball front offices agreed with the notion that he was too expensive at his likely arbitration pricetag for the minimal value he offers, so...
    • I don't think the decision to let Nunez go is related to this flyer at all.  This is merely a low-cost, no-risk flyer IMO.  Nunez was gone before Elias even knew Shaw would be placed on waivers by the Giants, so there is no reason to think the plan was to release Nunez and replace him in the lineup with Shaw.  As you said, Shaw is left-handed, has an option, and is cheap.  I don't think it is any more complicated than that.   There's a good chance IMO that, as other moves are made, Shaw ends up DFA and we try to pass him thru waivers and outright him to Norfolk.
