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.

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.

    • I was hoping to see news on a surprise retirement announcement after seeing this thread bumped up. 
    • Hutzler's was in Westview Mall, not Security Mall.
    • He lied before and was called out by Palmer.  
    • Isn't CD getting paid enough to lie through his teeth when he's asked questions on Hot Stove radio programs?  Would it hurt to make up a bunch of complete crap about his "punishing" work ethic just for public consumption?  Is that too much to ask? Apparently so.
    • I used to work at a grocery store in college and my boss used to me make me buy his lottery tickets at the liquor store next door and I frequently saw Artie Donovan in there shopping.  Only knew who he was because of Letterman.  Didn’t ask him for his autograph though.  Mark Williamson used to come in the Grocery store a bunch. As did coach Kenny Cooper.    Saw Brooks coming out of Security Mall one day In the 80s and he looked like he didn’t want to be bothered so I didn’t say anything to him. He left through Hutzlers so he probably figured no one was going to be in there.
    • Chris Davis did a phone-in interview today on the Hot Stove radio show on 105.7 The Fan here in Baltimore. Jim Hunter and Steve Melewski straight out asked Davis about hitting, and what he was doing to improve his hitting in this offseason. Nothing Davis said supplied hope. He flat out said he wasn't going to drastically alter his swing because he is now in his 30s, and because he has had sustained success in the past with his swing. He said he talked a lot with the O's staff (didn't he say that last year?) and the O's mentioned that he was successful when he was stronger, and since he has purposefully done less work with the weights the last few years, he was going to try to get stronger this offseason. He also said he would try to be more aggressive in order to not take so many called third strikes, and to let the ball travel, so as to not try to hit it out in front of the plate so much. He also said some stuff about his mind being in a better place, etcetera. Which would be nice if he was hitting baseballs with his mind instead of a bat. So, he basically said he was doing nothing special this offseason to improve his hitting, he is just going to take a better approach into the upcoming year.
