Recommended Posts

Interesting to see that Tate throws all sinkers and curves (at least that inning).

Wow, is there an OH'er actually on the field?

That was a typo, I use my voice software and for some reason The words he and them or he and you are frequently interchanged

Not a good  look with twice player flare ups in the open 

Yeah people might begin to get the idea that the Orioles lose a lot and get frustrated.

DJ has worked his way into a good count. And walks!

Don't get picked off! (The throw over might hit him in the head.)

I find it interesting that we started a lefty heavy lineup, and yet Martinez has relieved Scherzer with two righties.   Seems like bringing a lefty in after Scherzer when more than half our lineup is lefthanded would have given them an edge.

I was in the kitchen nuking a Hot Pocket (yes, my gourmet dinner for the evening).  What exactly happened with Bleier yelling at someone?

 

He was talking near the dugout and Flores said something to him then it escalated. Bleier pointed back to field at one point. I thought he dropped an F U at Flores as well.

Bleier doing his best to remove all doubt here

I envision Bleier with a full can of gas and a smirk on his face. “Don’t call me Rick.”

Poof! Game over.

    • You’re going to eat those words.    
    • Is it wrong to make a choice that will work out in your favor 99% of the time, and there's no way to tell if this particular choice is the 1%? At 33: Carlos Delgado had a 161 OPS+.  Over his last four years of his career he was worth 4.8 wins. Jack Clark had a 148 OPS+.  Three years later he was done. Derrek Lee had a 146 OPS+.  Two years later he was an Oriole... and done. Pedro Guerrero had a 145 OPS+.  The next season would be his last with average batting numbers. Aubrey Huff had a 142 OPS+.  He never had a 100 again. Lance Berkman had a 140 OPS+. He'd have two more pretty good seasons. John Olerud had a 140 OPS+.  After that he played 214 games with a 98 OPS+. Jeff Bagwell had a 140 OPS+.  He actually had three more good years before falling off and retiring. Mike Easler had a 140 OPS+.  He had one more .800 OPS season. Cecil Cooper had a 138 OPS+.  He had one more season where he was an average or better hitter. Don Baylor had a 138 OPS+ (actually at 34).  He had one more season with an .800 OPS. George Hendrick had a 138 OPS+.  He had one more part-time season with an .800 OPS. Andre Thornton had a 123.  He's have one more good year. Adrian Gonzalez had a 130 OPS+.  Since then he's gone .784, .642, .672. Dmitri Young had a 129 OPS+.  The next year would be his last. Then you have Nelson Cruz and David Ortiz at 137.  Cruz has a .928 OPS and been worth 21 wins since leaving Baltimore.  And Ortiz had perhaps the best late career hitting and phone smashing record of all time. Also, remember Cruz was born July 1st, on the cutoff date, so if he'd been born 12 hours later his walk year with the O's would have been his age 34 season, so we'd be comparing him to these guys a year later and a year worse.
    • Happy 4th to all here at the Hangout!   May you have a safe and restful day with your family!   Best, Johnny    
    • Not having Bundy is addition by subtraction, IMO.
    • Thank you.  Although Frobby did have a good point in the article he linked.  Bonilla is getting the equivalent of an 8% return, which is not too far off the historical rate of the stock market.  So he would have been quite lucky to have gotten a lot better return than what he's receiving now.
    • #50THANNIVERSARY #4THOFJULY On this day in 1970 the Baltimore Orioles lost to the Detroit Tigers 6-5.  The Tigers broke out the fireworks in the 9th inning when they scored 5 runs off of the combination of Dave McNally, Dick Hall and Pete Richert.  Richert gave up homeruns to Norm Cash and Mickey Stanley to take the loss. Don Buford went 2 for 4 with 1 run scored and 2 RBI and Davey Johnson went 2 for 4 with 1 run scored for the Birds. BOX SCORE  
    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970 the Baltimore Orioles shutout the Detroit Tigers 4-0 behind Mike Cuellar's 4 hit complete game effort.  Cuellar walked 1 and struck out 3 while allowing doubles to both Willie Horton and Dick McAuliffe. Brooks Robinson went 2 for 3 with 1 run scored and Davey Johnson went 2 for 4 for the Birds. BOX SCORE
