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.

    • I was at that game in 1993. I was seated in the lower deck of Yankee Stadium on the third-base side, looking out toward right field.  I saw the play from pretty much the same angle that the umpire would have seen it. And I didn't know, until I read about it in the paper the next day, what had happened, because I completely lost track of the ball as it descended against the backdrop of three decks of seats filled with fans.  I assumed, since Mattingly jogged around the bases, that it had landed in the seats beyond the wall. Perhaps the umpire, from his vantage point on the field, should have been close enough to see the play better than I could.  But I could understand why it could have been tough for him.
    • Zimmermann had a bad debut (3 IP 5 ER) but a good second outing (4 IP 1 ER).   So, I certainly didn’t get a negative impression of him.   I look forward to seeing what he can contribute next year.   
    • For 2B how about bringing back Jonathan Schoop or Jurickson Profar. Todd Feazier one year  deal for3B. 
    • I agree with RZ about sticking with Ruiz.  We don't have anyone better internally unless someone switches positions.   If there is a clear upgrade available at 3B for the major league roster, I think we could pursue anyone that is cheap - cheap to acquire and cheap to pay.  Ruiz was available as a cheap, failed prospect and if we could acquire another one and try it again, I would be fine with that.
    • I think I tend to be not as high on overslots as most people. Let's take Hokum Sven Kim as a hypothetical.  Hokum's number is $1.5 million.  He's still there in the eleventh round and the O's pick him up and with the savings from going underslot in the first round given Hokum his 1.5M. Now some folks will say the O's picked up a mid second round talent in the eleventh round, since 1.5M is slot for the 49.5 pick in the draft. The way I look at it, if other teams though Hokum was a mid second round talent they would have just picked him and coughed up the 1.5M. Either Hokum's number would have been even higher if he had gone earlier, which is possible, or teams didn't think his price matched his talent and he's probably closer to say a third round talent.
    • Maybe not even better than what we have now, but cheaper (i.e. not arbitration eligible). When you are in such a cost cutting move that you are getting rid of coaches, I think they will look long and hard at going to arbitration with anyone who is unlikely to be a prime MLB performer for the next several years. At least they won't get any flak for cancelling Fanfest to save a few pennies this offseason.
    • Probably true. In fairness, Tony said 17-25 could be placed many ways. Small preferences could move a guy several spots.
