I've said it before, whomever comes next might be worse.

That's a possibility there could be someone worse. If the Orioles ever leave Baltimore then I'm done as a fan.

Agreed, there’s no guarantee the next owner is better, but at this point I’m willing to risk it.

The Angelos regime has been mindnumbingly dysfunctional and incompetent. I’ll roll the dice.

Not a great look there Bryce 

Since it is the random thought thread The pic on the left reminds me of when Hardy, Reynolds and a few other guys went to a Ravens preseason game in 2012 and the crowd went nuts when they saw them on the jumbotron.  What a season that was

One of the crappiest things about this season is that...if I turn on the game after it's started and the Orioles are up, I can't figure out what part of the batting order they're in.  Like if Mancini is hitting, he could be batting leadoff, or 7th.  Schoop could be 2nd, he could also be 6th. If it's Trumbo, I feel like he''s probably 4th.  Our lineup is just a murky mess at all times with no discernible shape or rhyme or reason to it.

I read yesterday that Palmer only had 13 double digit strikeout games in his entire career.  

I just counted, Nolan Ryan had 17 double digit strikeout games in 1972 alone.

Goes to show you how amazing the Orioles defense was during Palmer's peak years.  I'm hopeful that the Orioles will focus on defense in the very near future.

I wonder how Palmer would have fared with an average defense.

In a strike-shortened season, to boot.

Is it me or does Caleb Joseph's bat look extremely thin?  It almost looks like an extended wiffle ball bat.  I think he should try a thicker bat to increase his chances of making contact.

Perhaps some type of large paddle?

    • I guess the O's hadn't used the cheating technology yet.        
    • Does Cashner require an MLB deal?  Colon would at least draw some press. 
    • I think that was a great win.  Indiana scored on every single trip down the floor to start the second half.  It had to be 13 times down and 13 scores.  Even when they missed, they got the offensive rebound and scored.  I don't think they even made any free throws in that stretch.....it was all made baskets. Sometimes, the other team just decides to try harder and stops missing shots and they did a great job.  This had loss written all over it, so I have to give credit to the Terps for winning a game that they should have lost....which is very rare in the Turge era. 
    • I did in fact create a spreadsheet.     As mentioned, many of the pitchers were on the BA list more than once.    So, I've sorted them into four buckets according to the highest ranking they attained. BA 1-25:  30 pitchers achieved this level, and that group averaged 12.5 rWAR.     Of the 31 pitchers I categorized as "reliable starters," from this bucket you have four of the No. 1 Studs (Kershaw, Price, Strasburg and Bumgarner), one of the Solid No. 2's (Teheran), two of the Mid-Rotation guys (Buchholz and Porcello) and eight of the Middle/Back of Rotation guys (Bailey, Anderson, Tillman, Cahill, M. Perez, Hellickson, Moore and Wheeler).    So, that's 15 of the 30 who became reliable starting pitchers by my definition.  Two of the Stud Relievers, Davis and Chapman, also came from this bucket. BA 26-50: 26 pitchers achieved this level and the group averaged 7.3 rWAR.    The group includes one No. 1 Stud (Cueto), four Solid No. 2's (Gonzalez, Carrasco, Zimmermann and Chacin), one Mid-Rotation guy (Kennedy) and three Mid/Back of Rotation guys (Jurrjens, Holland and Gibson).    Nine out of 26 became reliable starters.   Stud reliever Britton also came from this category. BA 51-75: 23 pitchers reached this level, averaging 6.1 rWAR.   They include one No. 1 Stud (Scherzer), one Solid No. 2 (Arrieta), one Mid-Rotation guy (Leake), and two Mid/Back of Rotation guys (Niese and Cashner).   5 of 23 became reliable starters. BA 76-100: 20 pitchers were in this bucket.    Only two became reliable starters: Samardzija in the Mid-Rotation category and Jonathan Niese in the Mid/Back of Rotation category. Hall and Rodriguez both fall into the second bucket for now, though it's possible they could move up in future years.
