I just have to say something-even if Kevin wanted to hit a Red Sox better at some point in this game (which I seriously doubt he would want, as it's not what we do), why the heck would you hit a leadoff batter of an inning?

With a 77mph slider at that.

Been that way awhile for me 

Yeah I'm sure there are others but the Yankees were always number one for me since I was a little kid in 1996 and well memories die hard.

Why isn't Buck throwing a base or something?

I'm listening to the Red Sox broadcast up in Boston. Dennis Eckersley & Co are outraged at the Oriole ejection -- calling it embarrassing  and ridiculous.

Ubaldo tomorrow with a worn out pen? How can that be good on any level?

Didn't think about that sir. Gausman looked like a deer in the highlights.

Bleier looks like he was waiting for this moment.

He'll likely regret it.

    • I disagree that he's so important that a team would have to overpay for him to be dealt.  He's still pretty much the same guy the O's got on the cheap last year. Anyway, bad defense encourages the pitchers to strike batters out!
    • @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.
