Agree. Just saying it also wasn't a strike

Yeah, I thought it dropped in nicely, it just took its time about it....much like Holbrook's call.

I think if the ump did not throw out Gausman,the craziness might have ended.The player was running to first.

This. And Gausman was visibly upset that he hit a batter.

MLB has totally mismanaged this whole Baltimore-Boston conflict. Who thinks that Gaussman through at the batter? The home plate umpire has had a totally  random night behind the plate. Adam mumbles under his breath as he walks away from home plate and the Orioles are victimized for a second time in this game.

 

It is time for all Orioles fans to speak out about MLB's bias against the O's because of the dispute about the O's not caving in to the Nationals access to MASN. MLB made some guarantees to Baltimore when the Nationals were relocated to Washington about loss of market. 

Those guarantees have not been honored.

This ump is embarrassing MLB tonight. If Torre respects the game like he claims, this ump at worst needs to be suspended indefinitely without pay. It's almost like he has a wager on this game. Jesus.

ALL this! I like and respect Joe Torre but that is hanging by a thread right now.

    • @Tony-OH Just another quick thank you for the time and effort of doing this.  Makes my lunchtime reading very enjoyable!
    • Because I the idea of a good, veteran defensive SS anchoring the infield while we--hopefully--feature a very young pitching staff next year getting their feet wet at the Major League level. I am not a fan of Velazquez and am skeptical about Martin. I guess you could sign someone like Hechavarria, but it's going to be hard to find a good defensive shortstop that is not completely useless at the plate for the cost of Iglesias (and we certainly aren't going to pay any more than that for someone for next year, nor should we).  With the young pitching, I want to give them as much as possible to succeed. To me, that means good defense up the middle and at least some offense. I don't want them always expecting to have to be nearly perfect to have a chance of getting their team a win. Having some wiggle room from time-to-time, in my estimation, is helpful. Of course, I don't have data to back that up, but that's my thought.
    • 2021 midseason moves will probably be crazy.   The whiffing in the NYP suggests a conservative initial assignment, but also one where hopefully he's Barry Bonds grown man to the children he'll be playing with.  A good Stowers '21 I think pushes through three levels; two is making par, maybe.
    • From the underrated guitarist department...  
    • I saw Stowers multiple games with Aberdeen in Brooklyn in 2019.  He just glides across the OF in large strides (which makes it all the more impressive that Janvrin pushed Stowers to RF - which gave the Aberdeen pitchers two OFers who could track down everything that possibly could be tracked down).  As I posted at the time, we sat with Mark Dashbach's father and had to cheer for our three Stanford guys with him.   I hope what the Os saw with Stower's swing is fixable because there's a big hit risk here for a second rounder IMO.  This pick has the downside of the OF equivalent of a Cadyn Grenier.  It would be an enormous boost to our OFers at the bottom of the system if Stowers turns into the player the Os envisioned when drafted.
    • This is really good. Sideys from something I was listening. I saw Edgar, right near here in Chambersburg. Very excellent! Don't know what event that was, Ringo introducing.
    • That's a good way to look at it honestly. Stowers is certainly a projection guy with a decent ceiling, but he has a high risk profile on whether he can get there or not.
