The most exciting 15.7 seconds in years

I could see myself going to a game in person for the first time in a couple seasons, after they release Chris Davis of course.

Wait till after June 1st when Hays and Diaz are on this team. I could see us being a lot like those pesky Twins teams a few years ago that always gave out “contending” teams fits.

Didn't the O's set the all time record for least triples, I believe it was 5 or 6?

In 1986 the Orioles hit two triples at home.  All year.  Both Memorial Stadium (at least after the early hedgerow years) and OPACY have been terrible places to hit triples.  By my count the Orioles have had 32 years where they've hit fewer than 10 triples at home.

The other side of that coin is the 1894 NL Orioles hit 150 triples in just 129 games.  Which is still the single season team record.  The last time a team hit even 100 triples in a season was 1932, when the Senators did it.

Back then, most parks were also massive.

When I think of slow Orioles, I think of Wieters. Looked like he was carrying two buckets full of milk around the bases. 

Yeah I agree and to me Markakis in the outfield always looked like he was running in sand.

I had Hays at about 15.7 tonight on his inside the park job.    He kind of let up as he approached 1B, turned on the jets when the ball got past the CF, and let up again about 20 feet from home plate when it became clear he wouldn’t draw a throw.

Odd coincidence and quality bump.

Welp, Diaz hasn't made his entry into O's lore yet but Hays just garnered a place in our hearts.  We are definitely "pesky" as this 2020 SSS suggests.  And @Frobby, how about that steal of home attempt?

I really want someone to build a ballpark where a player can hit an inside-the-park home run that doesn't involve someone making a mistake.  Hayes gets credit for a homer last night, but if the Phils' CF isn't so aggressive it's a single.  You could describe it as a single with a three-base judgment error.  And the official scorer was nice when he didn't say anything about the bobbled cutoff and no-throw, without which there at least would have been a pretty close play at the plate.

With parks no deeper than about 425 or 430 at any point I'm not sure Usain Bolt could circle the bases fast enough to get an inside-the-parker on a ball that just flies over an outfielder's head.

I don’t think the bobble would have mattered that much.  He went in standing up.

The idea of it being a single and 3 base error is interesting though.  If the CFer makes the catch, we talk about what a great catch it would have been.  But if he misses it, it’s an error in judgment and therefore Hays should get penalized for it.

Tough call there.  I tend to give the benefit of the doubt to the hitter there.  He hit that ball almost 107MPH and while it was a poor decision for the CFer to make, he didn’t touch it and Hays just ran hard.

    • Oh, absolutely.   The O’s were leading the division by six games when this news broke.   It stung pretty badly to lose Manny in that situation.   As it turns out, the team played well without him for the rest of the regular season.   But we’ll always wonder if he could have made a difference in that KC series, if he’d managed to rehab and return to the field.     Some posters faulted him for not acceding to the team’s wishes.   Not me though.  
    • Win 3 Cy Youngs, 3 World Series and a WS game in 3 decades and you can be as arrogant as you want.   Palmer rules.
    • So trade our best performing position player in order to get prospects that don’t usually pan out… i.e Machado deal  Pass 
    • I think the Orioles wanted Manny for the playoffs.  In a noncompetitive season they may have had a different view.
    • There were some aspects of the Manny knee situation I’d forgotten.   In particular, when Manny shut down and had surgery on the second knee, that wasn’t what the team wanted him to do.   "Our original approach was to have him rest and then to try to play and then see if he could play ball. We also knew there was a chance of a recurrence. Given this injury and the time of the season, we thought that we would rest it and try to recover and come back and play for the rest of the year. But Manny didn't feel that was the best option." (This quote from Duquette was in a post by weams without a link.).   It also seems that Manny had the option of “rest and rehab” with the first knee and opted for surgery.    Here’s a link to the weams post, which is in a very long thread on this topic.   https://forum.orioleshangout.com/forums/index.php?/topic/17946-manny-machado-expected-to-have-surgery-on-knee-within-a-week/page/35/#comments Anyway, I’d say Manny really did the opposite of what Tatis is doing, i.e., favoring surgery over rest and rehab.    
    • The thing about Adam Is that he comes across as genuine. He’s not one of these arrogant jerks like “well, you remember that I never gave up a grand slam” Palmer who reminds us every single chance he gets, and shares memories like a king distributes largesse. Adam is just a guy telling stories. I wonder how he’d be as a broadcaster?
