At least Davis swung the bat instead of staring at a pitch right down the middle for strike three.

Yep progress tomorrow he moves to the tee...

What?

Smith has a sub .260 BA against right-handed pitchers the last five years and has one 2+ WAR season since 2009. The guy is a very average player and his numbers are plummeting back to earth.

You're maybe the most optimistic Orioles fan tonight. I'm thinking last place before July. Maybe even worst team in baseball by September.

Actually we are NOW in 3rd place,  Red sox passed us tonight with this loss.

Who do you want to see more of, Rickard?

You know what the best part about this offensive slump is?

It's going to end, soon. BIG time. In about two and a half short weeks, once the Orioles are safely buried in the cellar of the AL East, the bats will begin scoring 8, 9 and 10 runs per game on the regular. 

And then, at the exact same instant that begins to occur, the starters will be instructed by Buck and the pitching coaches to throw 88 mph meatballs middle-middle 20 to 30 times per game, and we will lose every single one of those high-scoring efforts with ugly scores like 13 to 11. 

And then, ladies and gentlemen, we'll be well on our way to being the worst team in major league baseball.

.825 career OPS vs. RHP. That is very good.

    • I was a senior in high school in 89 and it was definitely a fun season.    I think the Orioles can hang around until the end with so many playoff slots being available. I just don’t think we have enough starting pitching to get it done. And as I mentioned, I think Cobb, LeBlanc and Milone are likely to be dealt if they are pitching well.
    • Cobb in his postgame interview was solid and doesn't want to be traded. When told Palmer thinks he could be dealt if he continues to pitch well he had a change of facial expression like he was upset. He thinks their team is real and are in every game and likes it here.  The perfect answer after giving the team  basically nothing so far on his big contract. If he keeps going around 6 innings and giving up 3 runs or less he will be in demand and will be dealt. We have too many young pitchers ready to move up and they will  move his salary the first chance they get to a money team like the Dodgers, Angels or even the Red Sox. 
    • Ben predicts pitches regularly and is very informative. Is Ben on all of the shortened season games? I hope so. He is awesome! I think somehow he is helping the players and coaches. Not illegally just being around. Scott doesn't have much enthusiasm but think he will get better. I think no fans makes him that way. Ben is fantastic and holds things together.  Change is good!
    • I agree with everything said. The cutouts and noise will keep the players from getting bored or falling asleep.
    • Can't say I've been enjoying the commentary. Garceau has the same mispronunciations and inaccuracies as Thorne but without any of the energy and excitement. Ben McDonald just goes on about productive at-bats and bunting like it's 1990. Palmer had a little bit of that too, but he seems to have kept up with the advances in the game more, despite being 20 years older. The one positive is that McDonald identifies the pitches correctly and is pretty good at describing a pitcher's repertoire.
    • Horn blasts arent phony.  There's a group of 10 or 12 real fans who go to a gate of the stadium where they can see a tiny sliver of the field through bars and they sit in lawn chairs and stand on ladders and follow the game and blow horns and do some chants.  They wear masks and say they social distance.  The Phillies even turned on TVs over concession stands in their view so they can watch the game. They call themselves the Phandemic Crew or something like that. Aaron Boone and the Yankees actually complained about them saying the horn blasts were timed with pitches just like fans who try to disturb golfers by making noise just as they swing. Google Phandemic, you'll find articles about the m.
