Monday. vs. Royals.   Whichever Orioles pitcher is starting.  3rd inning.  Hunter Dozier hits it.

So brave, so bold. 😉  Waiting until they're 8 away before playing the game you started.

Wonder what percentage of the HR's have been given up to the Yankees.

Yeah if only there was a way to  somehow divide 61 by 251 and express the answer as a percentage.

I was too lazy to find the # of HR's the Yankees have hit against us O's this season. 

So that comes out to 24.3% of the HR's we've allowed this season were against the Yankees.  That's amazing, and not in the good way.

Yep.  At least we are done with them until next year.

Well, I didn't say when the bets were due.

August 17th against the Red Sox.  Andrew Benintendi in the 7th inning off of Paul Fry.  Hanging slider on the inside half... Benintendi doesn't miss it.  

Well, Fry did give up a home run in the 7th inning on August 17th, but it wasn't the record breaker and it wasn't Benintendi (Devers, who is like, what? 40 for his last 50???  He's on a crazy tear...)

We tied the record last night, so it's almost a foregone conclusion the record is broken tonight by a Tampa Bay Ray.

    • Hard to put much stock into what guys like Al Davis says. There is a host of reasons for the team to say in Baltimore. Just because there is a wild arse rumor floating that the team is looking into moving, doesnt make it true, or a probability, either.
    • I want to believe this is true, but I can't get over the fact that Jaime Moyers come along very infrequently, and most often as guys who used to throw harder but have transitioned to pitchability types at the end of their careers. He's not very high on my personal list even though he's clearly an exceptional MiL pitcher. Hopefully I'm wrong.
    • I was worried about the injuries.  Wasn't a risk I was willing to take that high.
    • I was thinking about this the other day. There were quite a few people here that felt like he was the better pick at the time. I really didn't post much then, or now either, but I really liked him as a player.    Bundy was a good selection at the time. He's had a decent career in the grand scheme of things, just not on the level of Rendon.
    • He sounds very much like Ryan Mountcastle, at a high level at least. Profiles as a bat first guy who won't stick at short. With that said, hopefully he doesn't have an obviously deficient arm like Mountcastle. If he turns into a 3B eventually, which is what it sounds like to me, that bat could be a real plus. A ton of development between now and then though. I'd expect them to take it slow with him.
    • Kinga Glyk is the name of the bassist.
    • Am curious your opinion... Mine was generally that hard contact is the hardest skill to teach, and that transferring from contact to power was easier than the opposite. When you have a straight power approach and you're on, it's glorious. However, when you're not in a groove, it gets really ugly. I don't recommend that approach for pretty much anyone. Even supremely talented hitters like Giancarlo Stanton can lose value quickly when they lose the line drive approach to their game. Alternatively, when you're making hard line drive contact regularly, it's easier to let yourself go and crush some balls, IMO. It's when you do too much of that approach that your swing starts to develop real holes. Well, this is all my personal experience, at least.
