The Orioles started the year 4-1.  Would anyone reasonably extrapolate the data from that very small sample size to an entire season?  Nor should they.

I would have waited a lot more than two games to start looking for possible trends.   But hey, that's silly old me I guess.   

The 1998 Yankees (114-48) started out 1-4. I always remind myself in April that if the same winning streak or losing streak happened in July it wouldn't be a huge deal. (Unless some type of record is being set.)

Uh-Oh.

With Cashner gone and Davis and Broxton in the lineup most of the time, I'm not worrying.

Hallelujah!  My favorite team is no longer the most contemptible team in baseball.

O's are 8-8 since June 28th.

And Detroit's 3-14 since July 28th. They might finish last.

Some of the mid-season call ups are helping the team:  Santander, Sisco, etc

Don't worry, we'll make a few trades and get back on course. :)

O's are one game behind KC.

O's have gone 6-4 in the last 10 while KC is 1-9.

This thread is proving to be neither reactionary, nor trolling,  nor jumping the gun.

The O's are 16-15 since June 28th.

You're right, but let's not pretend that you don't jump the gun from time to almost every day.

You could have stopped at  You're right.  

I project quite a bit.   Like to guess what is going to happen.   Its hard to do that if I wait until  whatever is happening has revealed itself.  Its one  of the fun parts of sports to try to guess what will happen.  There is a whole betting industry built on that idea.

Its one thing for posters to say they don't agree with the point I am making.  But the insults are unnecessary.

If you or anyone is going to say i jumped the gun it would be good  to wait until you know I am wrong.  That didn't happen in this case.

    • Twins want an upgrade at 1B over Cron.  Could always have them include Javier in a Mancini trade package.  If he isn’t drafted by another team.  And, if we don’t take him, I doubt anyone else will.
    • I’m hoping that in 5 years I’ll look back and say 2017-18 were worth it because that collapse forced us to totally remake the organization into the winner we are today.   But right now I’m in the “hope” phase.   
    • Interesting. They don't usually reveal that information about who is protected. I guess that's why I've never heard of it.
    • I know the minor league phase has changed a little, but in the past teams could protect something like 38 players (in addition to the 40 man roster) from both the AAA and AA phases. I'd imagine it's still similar 
    • Aren’t there already enough horror movies released these days? That season was a complete kick to the crotch and I wanted to fast forward to the end by mid August.
