It's pretty simple. Win tomorrow, and we're playing beyond Sunday.

No matter what our season won't end on Sunday. We might be watching a game in Cleveland but the season will not be closed Sunday night.

For all of our blood pressure (and sanity), win on Saturday.

Haha...thanks for that. They are in full meltdown mode. I thought Canadians were supposed to be polite?

Cito sucks.

It's a guilty pleasure of mine to read their board and the Red Sox board when things are going bad. And I'll say this, I am really glad this board is patrolled better than their boards.

The obnoxious attitudes, cursing, name calling, player bashing, etc is just absurd. I know it's venting, but get a grip. We have our discourse here, but at least we generally have reasonable discussion. And if a poster gets out of hand they're reprimanded as they should be. Those boards are just absolutely awful.

We should not take the great job our mods do for granted. It's embarrassing to see the level of discourse on some of these other boards.

When someone from their board can boast conversations and social interaction with Muhammad Ali, Ted Williams, Mickey Mantle, Paul McCartney, Todd Rundgren and Richard Nixon, I'll be embarrassed by those tools.

We need to just win out and control our own destiny. Boston winning is great but I don't see Oak doing us any favors against SEA. And I sure as heck don't see ATL and the AAA Indians helping us against DET. Plus we play first today.

Win first today and put pressure on everyone. Pressure is everything right now.

One important thing not to overlook: The Blue Jays absolutely have to pitch Aaron Sanchez on Sunday. There's now no scenario where the Orioles have to face him in a do-or-die game

    • Good replies but I did not say to sign any expensive free agents. I suggested filling in as Elias suggested on last weeks Hot Stove show the need for an experienced middle infielder (Iglesias), starting pitching (Wheeler or Odorizzi) and relief pitching Hudson and Harris.  None of them will break the bank but will solve his needs. Most of these players will probably get 1 year or 2 year deals. The starters I named may push for 3 years but I would stay away from any requiring more than 2 years since we have a number of young starters moving up soon. 70 wins is obtainable with a few additions. How many games did our pen blow last season.  Givens alone cost us probably 8 or more games and the rest of the pen others. I think most of us would be happy if we reached 70 in 2020.
    • Yeah I guess it doesn’t matter that he’s nearly 30. 
    • No.... .....and it is one of the most depressing / infuriating / frustrating things about the last two years. The guy is a millstone around the neck of the franchise. Mancini should be playing first. Anyone could see the rebuild coming, knew it would be difficult, but looked forward to seeing the emerging players. Some will flame out, some will flicker with hope, and some (Means seems to be the first) will exceed expectations. But C F'ing Davis watching belt high 91 mph sinkers for strike three with that deer in the headlights walk back to the dugout look.....   ugh. That I wish we could be spared.
    • As a state employee, I enjoy watching people dig themselves deeper into holes.
    • Doesn’t bother me that Gammons mentioned he was dumped by the Orioles.    That’s part of the story.   
    • Nope.    But we’re talking about next year.    Elias says Davis is following a regimen they set for him.   I’m not optimistic it will work but we’ll see.   Honestly the regimen may have more to do with execution than approach, if you follow me.
