Jim Palmer’s beard

Recommended Posts

Is there some reason Palmer doesn't look at either guy he is working with on the broadcast during the pregame broadcast?

Brown seemingly cannot take his eyes off of Palmer when Palmer is talking, but Palmer never looks at whoever is his broadcast partner.

By the way, the bobblehead had Palmer in an all-orange uniform. When did the O's wear all-orange uniforms?

1974 or so?   Terrible look.  
 

Edit - 1971 when they had 4 20 game winners!  Google Orioles all orange uniforms and you’ll see what I mean.

First question....because Kevin Brown looks like the guy from Mad Magazine and Palmer is afraid he’ll bust out laughing if he looks at him while trying to talk?

Orange unis, 1971.

I don't much care for the black jerseys (other than as a reminder that the work week is over, but I'd like to see an all-black uni some day, like the New York Giants briefly wore early in the last century.

The black jerseys are okay, I hate the O's hat though.  Dunno why they'd miss an opportunity to wear an all black cartoon bird hat...or a black hat cartoon bird hat with an orange brim.

Two things wrong with the O's hat: it's ugly, and it uses the wrong apostrophe.

I have an Oklahoma State cap with a squarish O that is much, much nicer.

IIRC, they only used those uniforms once or twice.  

The uniforms came from a sporting goods store that Brooks owned.  Boog Powell hated them, made him look like a giant pumpkin.  A couple years later he had an all red uniform in Cleveland, and became the giant tomato instead.

    • From 2017-2019, he didn’t appear in more than 110 games. Bryant and Correa debuted in MLB the same year and Bryant is worth 7 more WAR. Bryant isnt some butcher at third.  You are greatly overreacting to his defense as of right now.  We agree that it will be an issue in a few years and he likely won’t stay at third long term but he can still play there now. Baez is about to turn 29.  He’s an intriguing option but I think he’s wAnts glitz and glamour.  He seems to be a guy like that, so I dont think he’s a likely signing for us.     To be honest with you, I think all of these guys are extremely risky.  If we are talking the FA route, I like Bryant aging well and keeping up his value whether it’s in the OF or first.  I think his bat will stay strong, especially in our park, that he will have value anywhere he plays.     But look at the SS..Correa and Seager have health issues.  Story’s having an off year, he’s about to turn 29 and his career OPs on the road is almost 250 points less than at home in Coors.  Simien has had his recent issues. The stat you brought up is great but the bottom line is that our current OF is completely unreliable.     We will wait and see on Mullins but no one should be going into the offseason feeling great about Santander and Hays.  On top of that, we don’t know how long Mancini will be here, who has helped with that stat.     Beyond that, we agree about the long term viability of the OF but it wasn’t long ago where we thought Diaz was a long term guy and Mullins was garbage…things change fast.  Personally, I don’t feel Stowers or Neustrom will be everyday guys but I do want to see them get a chance.  And of course we still know nothing about Kjerstad. One thing I will say is that the best case scenario would be to get a Nolan Jones or someone like that, for third or SS (ie, an up and coming young player with high upside who is attainable) and spend the money elsewhere.
    • I wouldn't "hand" anyone a job.  But, I would like to see Mateo given an extended look in 2022 to see what we have there.  I liked what I saw in a limited look.  We need to see if he is more than a utility or AAAA player.
    • Right, but you can't tell who can do that based off the number of runs they've scored.  
    • That will never get old. It certainly does get oldER, though, has it been long enough that we can remark on how young those guys look?
    • It doesn’t look dirty to me. The camera angle might be a little deceiving, but it appears he may have made some kind of move toward 2B after running through 1B and needed to get back on 1B. The runner has every right to be on base. The fielder/pitcher does not get to dominate the base like that. You could make a case that he pushed him for both to avoid a collision with knees or getting spiked. Those things cause legitimate injury.  He has never been considered a dirty player that I have ever heard. To me, it’s a good kind of competitive toughness that is taught from 9 years old. If a player stands in the middle of first base without providing a path for the runner, the runner can run through them. It is what it is.
