I can’t believe so many people went to the game today,  don’t see how it could have anyway have been enjoyable, I was in the city today and my car registered 102 degrees downtown.

Those are paid attendance figures.   Didn’t look like 18,000 people were there today.

For home games 41-50, attendance was 214,686, bringing home attendance through 50 games to 874,304.     As I expected, that was our best 10-game attendance stretch of the season, and I doubt we will surpass that in the remaining games.

Just thought I would mention this. I received an Orioles email a couple of days ago. Questions about being a Birdland member. 

Couple of questions I thought were interesting were about game times. 

They asked separately for each month of April, May and September game times for Saturday games and your preference of 1, 4 or 7pm. 

They also asked for game time preference for Mon-Th games for those months and I think the times were 6,630 or 7. 

I know others on here have Birdland plans and they may remember more.

Until I read this I wasn't going to bother with the survey. I strongly feel that April, May, and September Saturday games should be at 1 or 4. Especially in April.

There were other questions of course. Did not take very long.

I answered 4 for April games. I don’t mind the later starts in September. May I could go either way.  

For years FOX has had a big impact on Saturday game times. FS1 games do not have exclusivity like Fox games do.

I just think baseball should be played in the day time if possible. Grow the game and make it easier for kids to be able to attend entire games. I think Saturday summer games should potentially be an hour earlier too.

But in July and August and some of June ,people on the first base side would be in the sun for almost the whole game if it started at 6.I think day games are good for the other months.

I don’t think 6 is a bad idea for Saturday games. I think they did that in the mid 90’s a little. 

I am all for it in April. Colder weather. When FOX has its games in late spring/summer on prime time that dictates a lot of the Saturday game times. They were pretty much 4pm starts in May/June  I just read that FOX is only showing one Saturday game in September, the last week of year. They are though showing 2 Thursday games the weeks before.

I like the idea of weekend day games, so it's easier for kids to go.  Then I remember that the Orioles play in Baltimore, Maryland, where an average summer day at 2pm is 97 degrees with 144% humidity and most of the seats at OPACY are uncovered.  I've had Sunday day games when my kids were younger where the usher let us sit up next to the press box in the shade because we were about 12 minutes from catching on fire in the direct sun.

Hire a Zeppelin to hover over the stadium and block the sun.  It can move with the sun as the day progresses.  Plus they could sell Zeppelin Seats for only $350 each.

Yeah, I do not go on Sunday afternoons. I think that people with the Sunday plans are maniacs!

    • I think that as always, there are some fans that cross the line.  Hate to see that, because it is totally unnecessary.  At the end of the day, Zack Greinke has overcome a lot to have an excellent career and will very likely go to the Hall of Fame.  I am not sure what those taunting fans will accomplish in their lives, but I am willing to bet it will be much less.

    • Encarnacion definitely looks the part, you see him on a good day and I wouldn't blame anyone thinking he's a top 10 prospect in the system. There are a bunch of above average tools and good bat speed. It's the skills part of baseball that is holding him back. His footwork can get wonky at 3B and is the cause of most of his errors, but it is improved and I think he'll be an average glove there eventually. The big issue is a poor approach and terrible pitch recognition. He's a total guess hitter, he can hit spin if he's sitting on it, but it's a total guess style, he doesn't adjust or waste pitches and sometimes he gets caught in between which is even worse. I'm concerned that those are things that don't usually improve out of nowhere. But the ceiling is still average to above average regular, but it's a really low probability outcome and the floor is not making it out of AA.  Carmona looked good at 2B the few games I watched and he still has quick hands and good bat speed, but the swing mechanics are still a mess. He's rarely loaded and ready to attack on time which leads to weak contact and rolling over on pitches frequently. I'm not sure why he played so sparingly, so it's possible an injury hindered his performance. The ceiling isn't quite as high as Encarnacion, but his issues are more fixable IMO.  These guys have pretty serious flaws and neither fits the definition of hitterish, so they'll be a good test of the Orioles new player development machine, it'd be a good sign if they could get one of these two straightened out. 
    • Akin, Hays, and Harvey on OD roster.  Mountcastle after the service clock issues.  Tate as an up/down guy till he pitches well enough to stick. I think that’s it in terms of “prospects”.  Diaz might get a Sept callup but most likely the Mountcastle treatment.  If Akin didn’t get a call up last year then I don’t see any of the SP prospects getting called up either.   No point to rush to start service clocks in a 100 loss season.  
    • @Luke-OH or anyone else, what’s your take on these two guys, 3B Encarnacion(21) .648 OPS in Delmarva https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=encarn000jea SS Jean Carmona(19) .561 OPS in Aberdeen in only 25 games.  https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=carmon000jea  
    • Zero. Waiver claims if we do. We’re staring at, Means, Bundy, Cobb, Wojo, Akin for next year. With Brooks and Ynoa as depth in the MLB bullpen. We’ll likely see a 14 man pitching staff(if allowed). Also keep in mind that players must be in the minors for 15 days and not 10 once they get optioned. Plus position players can only pitch if their team is losing or winning by 6+ runs.  With all that being said, I think we’re going to see us be forced to carry arms in the pen that can go multiple IP. Basically SP. Especially considering we do not want to touch the prospects in AAA next year at all. See Akin this year.  It would be a little crazy for us to not start the year with Ynoa, Brooks, and two others like them in the bullpen. 
    • The big takeaway for me from this thread is that our window to realistically compete doesn’t start till 2023. We have to pay Davis in 20-22. Cobb in 20-21.  We might give it hell in 2022 with the guys in AA-AAA now, plus AR, Hall, and Rodriguez, but we’re In no position to even sign a FA until then.  I don’t know what type of deals Elias will get offered, but the smart things to do would be to Mancini, Bundy, and Givens. Villar is a given. Then get top draft picks from losing in 20-22.  After the 2022 draft we should be taking the field with a cheap, talented roster, with a farm system ready to sustain a run.
