The all star takes the mound tonight. You know something I just found out. you better sit down for this one. Frank Robinson did not make the list of all century team. 2. Two time MVP, Triple crown winner. At the time the list was made he was among the all time leaders in HRs and a few hits short of 3,000. Someone is higher than I am and that's hard to do.

I love me my Buddy Bell, but when it comes to third basemen, I think in order to have a different number one, you would have to re-define the position.

How many more innings does Means need in order to qualify for the pitching stat races?

He has to have as many innings as games his team has played.   Tonight is our 86th game, so he would have to have 86 after tonight.   He came in with 75.2.   So he'd have to go 10 and a third tonight to be on teh list tomorrow morning.

Realistically, if he starts again in say the 3rd game after the All Star Break on Sunday the 14th (game 92) and 5 games after that (97), he would need 21 and a third innings in those 3 starts to get to 97.   So basically he'd have to average 7 innings over his next 3 or 4 starts to reach a qualifying level.   Of course as soon as we played the next day in game 98 he would disappear from the list.

Anytime the O's put two of Broxton, Davis, and Martin in the same lineup their chances of a big inning rally go down exponentially.

I honestly don't think I've ever seen a worse baserunner than Jonathan Villar.   He is a threat to get picked off or caught off base or be at the wrong base every time he gets on the base paths.

Hunter:  "I'm sure Sisco has the green light here at 3-0".

Fat one right down the middle, Sisco takes.

    • I loved Sparky Andersons total WTF attitude towards defense his later years in Detroit.  Tettleton was a catcher/DH with the A's and the Orioles, occasionally playing a game or two in the OF or 1B in a pinch.  In 1993 Sparky played Tettleton at first in 59 games, at catcher in 5, in RF 39 times and 18 more in LF.  More or less repeated that in '94. By modern calculations he was somewhere between below average and "Mark Reynolds at third" at every position.  But who cares.  They led the league in runs, OBP, and were 2nd in homers.  They had a winning record despite just missing allowing the most runs in the American League.
    • By the way, I started this thread to post a bunch of cool and interesting stuff about the minor league Orioles.
    • I'm going to use this thread to post interesting things about the minor league Orioles that played in the Eastern League and then the International League from 1903-1953, with the exception of 1915. They're kind of the forgotten heroes of Baltimore baseball because anything that's not Major League is sometimes treated like it didn't happen. So even the 1890s Orioles get Hall of Fame plaques, while the seven consecutive IL champ Orioles are rarely mentioned at all. My first bit will be on the 1925 Orioles, the 7th of the seven consecutive IL champs.  After the '24 season Jack Dunn finally relented and sold Lefty Grove to the A's for $100,600 (about $1.5M today).  In '24 he'd gone 26-6 for the Orioles.  As an Oriole Grove went 108-36 in parts of five years. But not to worry, those 26 wins would have been fourth on the 1925 Orioles. Tommy Thomas, who'd pitch for the White Sox for years after leaving Baltimore, threw 56 games, 354 innings, and went 32-12.  George Earnshaw started 41 games, pitched in 53, threw 332 innings, and went 29-11.  And sitting in the back of the rotation was Jack Ogden who only got into 51 games, 327 innings and went 28-11. 89 wins out of their top three starters.  The 2019 Orioles got 28 out of theirs.
    • I am working from home. Luckily my job is pretty essential.   But I have worked from home since last fall.   So nothing new on that part. Last left the house for other than a walk around the neighborhood or in the backyard was a week and a half ago to pick up distance learning material from daughters school.   Had groceries delivered a few days ago. Also subscribe to Blue Apron to get some meal kits.  Wife is being paid to stay home.  So that helps with daughter being out of school.  Doing push-ups and jumping jacks at home along with walks to try and keep in shape.  Last weekend was pretty tough as it rained all weekend.  I did some hikes in the woods previously.  Hope to find some empty trails this weekend.   Not sure why there seems to be a shortage of eggs. Luckily I eat a lot of fruit and vegetables and surprisingly there doesn't seem to be any shortage of them.  
    • We got the order to start working from home on 3/16.  It is a huge cultural change for the organization I support.  Since 3/13 I’ve been to the grocery store twice, ordered from Amazon once, picked up Chipotle once, and ordered pizza once.  I’m used to eating lunch out everyday, so this has been a big change. Silver lining, I gave up soda cold turkey.  Wrapping up three weeks tomorrow.  I can notice some weight dropping, but don’t want to go out and replace the batteries in my scale!
    • Really are you even reading what I am saying.  SCHOOLS ARE MORE IMPORTANT THAN SPECTATOR SPORTS.  Almost all governments will not allow baseball to happen.  They aren't' going to let a traveling virus show hit their town.   They can go play in Brazil like the UFC if they want to but it isn't going to happen here in the US.  The players will never go to a third world country. But you can live in your fantasy land if you want.   And the sports would take a tremendous backlash by even attempting something like you suggest.
    • They lied, but for them to go from saying lets start up basketball to saying oh standby we have an uptick again is still surprising to do.  Otherwise they would have continued with games.  In other news, Japan trying my theory didn't work. https://www.newsday.com/sports/columnists/david-lennon/japanese-baseball-mlb-coronavirus-return-1.43570449 so, my empty stadium quarantine is off the table.
