I want the Yankees and Red Sox first. I want them to rue the day when the Orioles aren't their whipping dogs anymore. 

No, I want the 30 run scoring team and the 23 run scoring team first.

Is it over? I was looking for a Janis Joplin quote about Schlitz.

It's been over for hours.

Slice them thin and make scaloppine out of them! Can't pound out cooked meat but still...

Slice on a huge bias to make reasonable sized pieces. Less than an 1/8 inch thick. 5 inches long. Bread, pan fry. Profit!

What did I do to earn your ire, sir ??? Other than witness a mercy killing at OPACY tonight.

It's an ongoing gag on the Orioles Hangout ........ anytime anybody goes to a game in which I do not attend, I call them a bastard for having the audacity of enjoying the perks of being at the stadium without me.

Fair enough. But you definitely got the better end of the deal last night.

I'm going to the second game of tomorrow's doubleheader at Yankee Stadium, so then I'll be the bastard (in relation to any and all OH posters whom are not going to said game.)

23-2?  Y'all realize this will be going on for, probably, the next 10 years.  But, at least, they'll have a first round pick in every year.  Whoopee.

    • My mental image of the 1960s is that it was a lot of low scoring pitchers duels with a lot of little shortstops bunting and stealing bases.  But the stealing bases part is all wrong.  In 1966 the Orioles had the best offense in the league and stole 55 bases all year, caught 41 times. The only teams to steal 100 bases were the White Sox and A's, and both of them were within 0.02 runs of being the worst offenses in the AL. In '66 the average AL team stole four fewer bases than the average AL team in 2019. In 1964 the Orioles were 4th in the majors in steals, but Luis Aparicio was the only player on the team with more than four.
    • Can’t really argue with any of these on their own merits, but you do then face the question of how you reallocate the playing time to account for these changes.   For example, Joey Ortiz is hitting .295/.404/.458 at Aberdeen.   Good, but not necessarily promotion material at this early stage.    So what do you do with his playing time if Henderson and Westburg are suddenly both in Aberdeen as well?     Adam Hall is off to a slow start there, but are you going to demote him when he already played a full, successful season at Delmarva in 2019?     These are tricky decisions.   I can’t disagree with the idea that you look at the players who are most likely to be successful major leaguers, and when they are ready to move up a level, you move them up regardless of who else that affects.   But, it does make things more complicated when you’ve got other decent prospects who are going to lose playing time if a promotion is made.   
    • “Single-A Delmarva infielder Gunnar Henderson was named Low-A East League Player of the Week after going 10-for-23 (.435) with four doubles, a home run, 13 RBIs and seven runs scored.” https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2021/05/diaz-going-on-injured-list-santander-completes-assignment.html
    • Because a lot of people don’t want to go out to “enjoy themselves” while wearing those stupid masks.  Once Hogan said no more masks, that was good enough. I went to the store yesterday and almost everyone was still wearing them.  If that’s how it’s going to be, that’s fine.  It’s your choice.  I am just glad I have the option to not wear them.  
    • “Bowie third baseman Patrick Dorrian was named Double-A Northeast Player of the Week. He was 7-for-21 with three doubles, three home runs - including a grand slam - 11 RBIs, seven walks and eight runs scored.” https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2021/05/diaz-going-on-injured-list-santander-completes-assignment.html  
    • The three sites with the most information are: Baseball-Reference.com, Fangraphs.com, and baseballsavant.com.    The latter of those has xBA and xwOBA. I think all three have BABIP.    The best way to learn about this stuff is to go onto those sites, go to the player page for a player, and just explore what’s on there.    There’s all kinds of stuff, and you easily could spend an hour just familiarizing yourself with what’s on there. Also, if you go to the MLB forum here, there’s a thread at the top called Super Stat Sticky: Get Your Learn On that has a lot of good information about where to find things.      
    • And make it easy/easier  for them to turn 2? He did nothing wrong there.
