Wow!  Great 7-5 DP.  You have to think maybe Biggio wasn't hustling to the plate on that tag up.

I thought that. Didn't see him on the replays.

He didn't Johnny Hustle that one.  To be fair though, that's an easy score, and that was a dumb move with the dimensions of OPACY to take third.

There must have been at least 100 occasions when I've watched a runner on third trot home on a deep fly ball that's the second out and have said (to myself), "You need to to run hard in case a trail runner makes the third out." I think I've seen the third out made before the run scored no more than a couple of times. 

Nice throw and tag.

    • Wasn't the thought that Gunnar would move to third base if needed, not second?
    • #50THANNIVERSARY As the Baltimore Orioles entered the day on August 1st, they had a record of 64-39.  The Birds were in first place in the AL East, 6.5 games ahead of the Detroit Tigers.  They were 0.5 games behind the Minnesota Twins (62-36) for the AL's best record. During the month of July the Orioles had a 17-11 record.
    • I never said Bleier was as good as O'Day.  O'Day would come in with runners on base and no one out and not allow a run.  He was excellent.  And O'Day had strikeout stuff.   Bleier pitched to contact.   He could pitch two or three innings and pitch very well but would not come in the situations that O'Day did.   However Bleier was very consistent when healthy and pitched to just below a 2,00 ERA.   There are not many pitchers that did better than he did during that period.  He would take a lockdown, strikeout pitcher to be better.    He certainly looks like he is back to his old form at this point.
    • You're not going to have a team full of top end players at every positon. He looks like he could be a quality player. Gunnar isn't going to be ready for several year, and who knows if he even works out. Prospects are super volatile. If Alberto can continue to be an average to slightly above average or better player I'd love for him to be a long term piece until he gets pushed out.
    • OPACY has fantastic drainage.     But it will be challenging.   3.5 - 4.5 inches of rain expected from Monday night through Tuesday afternoon.      
    • Not sure I follow this logic.    Why is Verlander’s contract “extreme?”     There are several batters who have bigger contacts.    It is an unusual year when the best pitcher has more value than the best hitter, measured by Wins Above Replacement, which by definition takes into account how hard it is to develop players above replacement value. In fact, the more I think of it, the less logic there is to your argument.   An argument that makes more sense to me is that more pitchers are lost to injury, so you have to draft more of them to account for the attrition.     
    • o   One thing at a time, Scott ...... you can't win 7 in a row until you win 5 or 6 in a row. And you can't win 5 in a row until you win 4 in a row. Let's win tomorrow, and get the 4th.   o
