Here is a thread from when he was breaking the 100K barrier.   You’ll see I made a joke breaking down the content of his posts.   

 Per that thread, I was at 44 k when he was breaking 100 k, 8 years ago.  My current official count is 49 k.    I think it’s safe to say I’ve posted more than 5,000 times in the last 2800 or so days.    

 

You were the only one in the top 3 not permanently banned. 

I like this comment by you:

"Posts conceding he was incorrect or mistaken -- 1 (sort of)"

To reach 100000 posts like Sports Guy had you would need to average 34.5 posts per day for 7.93 years or 2898 days.

I know it's been like a decade since he left, but does SportsGuy still have more posts on OH than any other poster? I'd almost not be surprised if he does.

I feel a great disturbance in the force. He made duke fans like me look bad.

2-4 with another HR, his 2nd in 4 games, is Martin making adjustments to major league pitching? 

The hanging slider bat speed plays.

Fun with arbitrary end points: Since May 22nd, Martin is hitting .225/.279/.475 with three home runs. That will play.

Yeah, if he can keep that up along with the defense that's not bad.

So he has a hit streak where he is hitting .225?   That really puts things into perspective.

Baby steps, man, baby steps. His OPS and BA just climbed past Davis (.551 vs. .541; .178 vs. .161) and he's even out-homered him 3-zip since May 15th. How's that for putting things into perspective! 😂

Is it too early to lock him up long term. Coc is an advocate of locking up talent early & I agree, it’s time to pay that man his moony. 

It will be tough, but worth it. How about 5 million for eight?

    • Bad move and I am not going to be excited about it! I gave a list in my last posts of guys they could've taken a shot on in the rule 5. Obviously some of them aren't ready but who cares. They would've saved around 1 million dollars and as long as his glove plays who cares if you are signing a guy that going to get on base as such a low percentage anyway. I honestly thought Elias would move away from the low OBP guys that have been a staple of Orioles baseball for a long time. I understand trading Iglesias for resources ....But I don't see how signing this guy does anything but cost extra money that the Orioles are showing signs of financial distress.
    • I said I was exaggerating! I'm not incorrect in saying that this move is "Dumpster Diving" or the Bottom of Bargain Bin signing! And as @Tony-OH said they could've just gave the at bats to Martin or someone else that we have playing for the minimum. Or draft a guy in the rule 5 that perhaps has a future in MLB baseball. Like Lenyn Sosa, SS, Alfredo Rodriguez, SS , Wenceel Perez, SS , Livan Soto, SS , Leonardo Rivas, SS , Omar Estevez, 2B/SS,  Wander Javier, SS , Arquimedes Gamboa SS, Jordy Barley SS, Kevin Smith SS/3B Players that I highlighted 1) Wander Javier 60 ARM/60 GLOVE 2) Livan Soto   55 ARM/ 60 GLOVE /50 HIT 3) Leonardo Rivas 60 ARM/60 GLOVE/55 HIT (***BB PROSPECTUS 2020) 4) Arquimedes Gamboa 60 ARM/60 GLOVE /60 RUN 5) Jordy Barley 60 ARM/ 55 GLOVE/60RUN 6) Kevin Smith  60 ARM/ 55 GLOVE https://www.mlb.com/news/rule-5-draft-eligible-prospects-2020   AND DONT BE A TROLL!!  
    • Me either, but apparently they believe Galvis is a significantly better player then he's been over the last few years offensively and the major drop off last year defensively was apparently an aberration, because players normally get better at 31.  I don't hate this move, I just don't see what it does all that much. I think they could have player Sanchez at SS and probably gotten the same defense and allowed Valaika or Urias to play 2B every day to see what they have. But hey, why not bring in a 31-year old with bad defensive numbers last year and well below average stick?
    • I just dont understand why anyone would be excited about this move.
    • It was his first year back calling games in 2020 and unless Garceau started cursing during broadcasts last year, he was always going to be in the fold. 
    • We won 14 games last year and 11 games this year doing exactly what I'm saying, and Lamar won an MVP for it last year.  Brees won 12 games this year without really throwing downfield, including beating the bucs twice in the regular season.  Manning won a super bowl in 2016 without being able to throw it deep.  So no, I'm not wrong.  If you don't think Lamar specifically can succeed with midrange passes then I'd like to know why.  But there are plenty of examples of successful QBs within the past 5 years that didn't rely on deep balls.
