Hoping we drill some guys in the letters

Recommended Posts

Don't you guys ever tire of opposing teams beaming our best players? They do it every single year. And our pitchers do nothing.

All they do is just sit around and suck on it.

That's what adults do. They let the babies have their tantrums, and we go about our business like pros.

Because you are proposing something that would not actually change this supposed imbalance, would endanger the health of innocent parties, would cause lost time for our hilariously thin pitching depth, just so you can give a "f u" to some guy who wasn't even involved in this. Either you hurt Ventura directly (but you won't because he's an AL pitcher) or at best you frustrate his manager by injuring someone. And everything else is ego. What is the point?

It depends on if it was intentional or not. Buck is just playing it from a strategy standpoint, which is smart. I would love to bean someone in retaliation, but you lose the pitcher and Buck gets tossed. That's no bueno.

Who cares of Buck gets tossed. He doesn't play in the games. Just have somebody drill someone. Let them know, stop hitting our best players.

The easiest way to stop the 99 mph headhunter would be for MLB to suspend him for 30 or 60 games.

The league obviously can't reign in Ventura. So let Cain do it. The rule should be this: drill our best player and Cain takes one to the upper back. See how Cain likes that. See how the Royals and Ned Yost like that. Ventura stops that crap real quick then.

I care. It's just not the right way to play the game. Beat them up on the board, those mind games will last longer than the punch to the face.

Yeah, because that's what happens when you hit someone back. They go, "gosh, I deserved that. I better get my act together."

I agree. But they never admit intent.

Yeah he was doing a cut throat and maybe flashing some hand signs at Manny as well.

That should be a thing in the next CBA meetings that will come in the offseason this year.

Exactly. And then tell them at every opportunity that this is how adults act. Pound them into submission with good baseball and laugh all the way home.

No they say hey this is what happens when our pitcher keeps drilling the opposing teams best player.

That's how to handle it. You drill our best we go high on yours. See how quickly that ends it.

    • Sorry, my dreams are going to be more worthy, then if Davis crushes or not.
    • I have laid out in another thread how I don't think that is remotely possible. The Pirates fans are being sold a proverbial bridge is Brooklyn by their ownership, whois trying to convince their fans a rebuild is necessary as a guide to make money off the team.  Nuttings number one asset outside of the pirates...Seven Springs.  How's that southern PA ski slope doing for ya? The pirates lineup has an MVP caliber player in Bell who put up a .900 OPS last year.  Brian Reynolds, Osuna, Frazier, and Newman are all capable of .800 OPS. Their top prospects are near MLB ready.  Kebryan Hayes is a phenomenal 3B talent.  O'Neil Cousins and Cole Tucker are ready with minimal time at AAA. Pitching is an issue, but Archer started to rebound last year, Musgrove vastly underperformed his peripherals, Chad Kuhl should be coming back from injury, Trevor Williams has proven to be more than capable and Mitch Keller is a top pitching prospect (top 10 MLB).  Put it this way, the only Orioles starter who would make their rotation is Means.  Their bullpen has some very solid pieces.   I think there is little chance this team is the worst in baseball barring a huge sell off.  And if that happens the fans in Pittsburgh should riot.  
    • If someone takes him and the O's eat 90 percent of his salary, that's still a win. I think it is a near impossibility too but as I said: a man can dream.
    • Not a bad list.  For me, while I like most everyone on the list, I think there is a noticeable drop-off in upside at 17 after Rom who is in front of Bannon and Sedlock.   It seems likely or possible that we will lose Mountcastle, Hays, Diaz, Baumann, Kremer, Lowther, Akin and Harvey off the top of this list - seven of our top 12 unless the FO really slow-plays the promotions (or the guys don't produce and lose prospect luster).  If our FO slow-promotes, it would be the clearest indication to me that we are likely in tanking mode again next season.  Perhaps not full tanking, but more of a "we are promoting guys to the majors, but not supplementing them with quality free agents".  Assuming the guys are doing fine or well in the minors, I sure would like to see Baumann, Lowther, Akin and Kremer tested in the majors this season.  I think it is important for their development that they start their major league experience sooner than later if they deserve it and to see what we have in them entering 2021.   If our 2020 draft has the same impact on the top 15 of the above list (see AR, Henderson and Stowers), then it seems likely that next year's list would be of comparable strength, but perhaps not a much stronger one without existing prospects (most likely candidates for that step up to include IMO Henderson, Adam Hall, Darell Hernaiz, Toby Welk, Drew Rom, Stowers and then perhaps a drop-off to Watson, Janvrin, Dashbach and a couple others) stepping up or some international prospects starting to impact the list or quality prospects received in trade (Mancini).
    • It might not be dumb, depending on the situation and how much salary the Orioles eat.   But I’m not going to waste my time arguing about hypotheticals that are extremely unlikely to happen.     
    • Not all the owners though.
