One thing about Buck....

Recommended Posts

...his Orioles teams were undefeated on Opening Day.    Even last year’s sorry team managed to win its first game before embarking on a five game losing streak that set the tone for the rest of the season.     We always had one day to feel good about the team.    I wonder what the odds are of winning on opening day this year?   Somewhere between 25-30%, I’d guess.

I'm expecting Aaron Judge to set a new single-season home run record on opening day. They could be playing until Sunday, with the O's shut out.

I was already wondering about the betting lines for these 3 games. I wondered if you bet on the Orioles all 3 and they won 1 of you would come out ahead. Have to think they will be plus 200 or more every game.

Last loss on Opening Day was the Mike Gonzalez debacle in 2010. Getting booed in pregame and then in the 9th when he blew the game. Good times. 

Frustrated fans taking out over a decade of anger on one player.

Wow, that's a pretty incredible stat, especially with the lack of an "ace" at any point during Buck's tenure.

And we've had three straight WALKOFF wins on OD.  Can't happen this year as we open on the road, maybe next week in the he opener.

I was thinking about this the other day.  The Orioles usually show up on Opening Day and even before Buck, I think they win most of their 1st games.

An OD victory would be a feather in the cap on what looks to be a bleak season.

Let’s go full Stockholm Syndrome on this “let’s be awful” thing and start Mike Wright.
