2 outta 3

Recommended Posts

I'd take a .667 winning clip the rest of the way.

Last time they did that for a month was back in June when they went 19-9. Since then it's been a losing July (.462) and a worse August (.448).

Let's hope they can put up some numbers like in June.

Ya know, everyone says how great it is to get 2 outta 3 but I refuse to do cartwheels over it. So what has changed because we took 2 outta 3 from the Yankees? Practically nothing has changed. We separated one game from the Yankees. Whoopty doo. What about the Detroit Tigers? They are coming fast and furious for that 2nd wildcard spot and guess what? We are STILL tied with them for it after winning 2 outta 3 from New York. So excuse me for not wringing my hands together in excitement. Now had the Oriole bats not been embarrassingly putrid today, then Baltimore would have separated THREE GAMES from the Yankees. Now THAT would be substantial. Plus Baltimore would have a 1 game lead on Detroit but whatever. 2 outta 3 flat out doesn't change a whole lot.

Series WIN! You're an idiot.

Talking to me like that because I am disappointed and upset about losing a very winnable game today and FACTUALLY STATING that our status didnt improve a lot this series? I should be insulted over simply giving my opinion? Screw you.

No you are the idiot if you think separating ONE GAME from New York and staying tied with Detroit is an amazing achievment.

2 outta 3 OVER A LONG PERIOD OF TIME gets you into the playoffs. ONE SERIES of 2 outta 3 DOES NOT. This Yankee series win DID NOT change our situation very much, thats all I said!!!!

It's not outlandish at all for this team to get on a roll. They just need one good hot streak. The offense is capable of that, and barring that they're still better than they've shown recently. The Tillman injury does hurt us big though as he could be covering up some of this. Btw it's important to remember that we still have 3 games left against DET so we have a chance to knock them down. On the other hand I can understand pessimism given our tougher schedule and and offensive slump. But to say it can't happen is absurd.

Calm down internet tough guy who is probably scared of his own shadow in real life. I have every right to be aggravated about yesterday's game and our huge 2nd half slump.I can express it however I please, regardless of how negative you find it to be. Lastly, how come you never attack anyone else like this? There are dozens of other frustrated, negative posters on here and you haven't said ANYTHING critical about them...Interesting...

I never said it can't happen. I hope and pray it DOES happen. The playoffs are a fun, exciting thing to be a part of and I desperately want to go back.

We gained a came on the Jays, Astrols, Yankees, Royals,and Mariners. We stayed same with Sox, and Tigers. That seems like a good weekend to me.

You might have wanted to take a look at the standings before you went on your little rant. Birds are 3.5 up on the Yankees in the standings and 3 up in the loss column.

    • Different situation ..... Mountcastle hit .312/.344/.527 in 544 at bats in 2019 at AAA. He was clearly ready and I'm not sure how you think the Bowie time impacted that. He started at the Bowie camp only because there was no AAA. He started at the Bowie camp to delay the clock.
    • Agreed.   But I would not say it’s impossible that Hess could become a credible major league pitcher.    Not too likely, but stranger things have happened.   
    • I think because of the way that 2020 went, level/placement will be more of a combination of scouting and performance than just performance. For Rutschman, that means that while you can justify starting him at lower levels, you also likely have enough to go on to start him in Baltimore on opening day if you really wanted. That argues for a AA assignment, though A+ wouldn't shock me I guess. On Diaz, I personally believe that he has already shown he's ready for AAA. So, for me, that means I'd assign him to AAA. From there, he has issues that he needs to work on, most notably his availability and production over time. He has flashed nicely at times, but then he inevitably has missed time for various reasons and tends to start slow upon return. That seems to have suppressed his stats. Also, I honestly think there's a red flag in there somewhere with Diaz. I think the O's like the talent more than the make up. If he's traded, I wouldn't be shocked at all. I also acknowledge that I'm reading between the lines here and have no strong evidence, for what it's worth.
    • Actually, you are right.   Not only was Hector Velazquez on the original 60 man roster so was Rob  Zastryzny.  I will add both of them to the OP. Good catch.
    • Hess and Arrieta should never be mentioned in the same sentence unless it to say they were both once drafted, developed and pitched for the Orioles.
    • You are right..it’s not the answer I’m looking for because it’s not an answer to the question you were asked. If I ask you, what is your favorite color and you tell me a banana, that is an answer and it’s not one I’m looking for..that doesn’t mean in insulting you, it just means that trying to discuss this with you when you clearly don’t want to answer the questions and you want your agenda is a waste of time.
