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.

    • Lions released Jamie Collins.  Wonder if the Ravens will be interested.
    • Syndergaard is no Stroman, but he could make a comeback and will obviously be much cheaper and therefore much more realistic - especially considering Stroman is a NYer, and the Mets undoubtedly want him back.  Noah is scheduled to make his MLB comeback tonight - probably just an inning - from the UCL tear - so he's basically missed 2 years - but he did pitch 197 innings the year before.  High risk but high reward.  Just turned 29, but the hair may be past its prime.     
    • Gametime:  7:05 pm Forecast:  mid 70s, there have been on and off light showers during the day and there could be a few tonight, but very minor Roster Move:  Bruce Zimmermann is coming off the 60 day IL to start.  Corresponding roster move has yet to be announced.

    • If going budget on 3B enabled us to get a Stroman/Gausman/Gray/Desclafini would you reconsider on Bryant? Highly doubt we're getting both. 
    • Well this to me explains it. Some seriously low OBP's on this team. 
    • I hate it too…but I think Stroman could be an exception to the rule because of how he pitches. I worry less about him wearing down vs a power arm. But we aren’t going to sign the perfect player.  FA doesn’t allow for that.  At some point, risks have to be taken.  It’s just a matter of mitigating the risks as much as possible.
    • I listen to a few podcasts and I think the O's have gone to great lengths to teach good swing decisions. Swinging at a low/away slider on the first pitch of an AB might be a bad swing decision in their eyes even if it's a strike. That approach will lead to better contact, but also deeper counts and thus more k's and walks. I think we view the k rate as the tradeoff to better contact when we actually swing, so I would expect it to be relatively high.
