Here's my pre game show. Tillman vs. the Red sox means we're toast.

After starting the season at 1-5 (and in the process, watching a complete mess of the Orioles' starting pitching performances with the exception of Dylan Bundy), many Oriole fans would have presumed that taking 3 games out of 4 from the Yankees ........ on their home field ......... was a pipe dream.

Even the 1962 Mets found a way to win 40 games, and this Orioles team is not as bad as those '62 Mets.

 

So would I consider the Red Sox a heavy favorite win this game ??? Absolutely.

Would I necessarily bet the house, the car, and the farm on it before a single pitch is thrown ??? Not a chance.

No doubt, But it's not only our pitching. It's our hitting as well. The Sox can hit and pitch. Don't believe me. Just ask the MFY.

Prior to this season, the Red Sox had NEVER started any season out at 8-1 in their franchise history (1901-Present.)

It looked like this year would be no different on Sunday afternoon, as they were losing by a score of 7-2 heading into the 8th inning of their game against the D-Rays.

But they scored 6 runs in the bottom of the 8th inning to take an 8-7 lead, and held on for the W ........ and they improved to 8-1 for the first time in 118 seasons.

    • Yes, a player COULD benefit from the instruction league, even though its a fact that no one has ever benefited enough to be a starter on the major league level the following year, AND he COULD also be in an auto accident and not be able to play any sports. How much is the Instruction League going to help him then.  The topic of this thread is about the player, but the real discussion is about each Poster's value system . . . intelligence or athletics!
    • You must have seen a different guy than I saw.  He committed 4 errors in 9 games.  3 of those at SS.  From his minor league history I think he might have a chance at 2B but not SS.
    • I would say that's crazy, but after this year, I'd say nothing is out of the question.  The only thing they have going for them is they have a successful major league season under their belt with no deaths and limited interruptions (not surprisingly). Even if they don't want to have a season at all the stadiums and all the travel, they should be able to have a Florida and Arizona camp leagues like they should of had this year.
    • I’d say maybe yes, maybe no. He spends 4-5 weeks playing with and against other professionals, gets some coaching, gets some eyes on him and they give him a program for what to do over the winter based on that experience and maybe he gets some of his own ideas of what he needs to work on based on that experience.   That gives him a leg up on next year compared to not doing it.   If they thought Fall Instructs didn’t benefit players, they wouldn’t do them, right?
    • Honestly, I don't think you can say that. You are probably right but maybe they uncover a swing adjustment that he can take into the offseason and perfect?  It's conceivably possible that his career could be impacted. As for what is more important?  This is hardly the only chance he has to work on his degree and it's pretty unlikely that having a degree in recreation and sport management will make a difference in the next year or so.  I'd say working on his degree right now isn't that important compared with professional baseball.  
    • Interesting Reading this thread: It's a fact that no one on this board has perused his contract . . . potential clause for getting his degree or not! It's a fact that no one has knowledge of anything discussed between the Orioles and him beyond the contract. It's a fact that no one here is aware of his medical condition.  It's a fact that his degree earned will be his for a lifetime. Now, what's more important, him getting his degree or playing for a few weeks? Is playing for the Orioles during this short 2020 period going to have ANY impact on his career? NO
    • No surprises in the first four players waived off the 40-man. David Hess has had many chances, but his straight fastball and lack of consistent stuff will never really play at the major league level. Andrew Velazquez  showed he was decently versatile, but also showed his previous inability to hit was his level of hitting. Slow bat, just doesn't bring enough to hold down a utility job unless a team is just looking for versatility and no bat. Kohl Stewart former first round pick decided to be one of the few major leaguers to opt out due to COVID despite having a real chance at make a major league starting rotation for the first time. No issues with letting a guy go who gave up a golden opportunity at the big league level. Branden Kline Got good results in his three outings but his changeup and slider actually backed up in movement. At 29-years old, he's not a spring training.
