True. I look forward to the squads playing something closer to games soon. The staff is trying to mix in fun and break it up as best as they can but I’m sure everybody’s clock is on game mode or nearing it too.
No doubt about it, his injury history knocks him down a few pegs. His stuff was electric last year, though I think it was such a long time coming many fans (myself included) were thrilled to see anything from him.
I look at all star closer as a realistic, though difficult to attain ceiling, as we have already seen ML hitters overmatched by him.
I was at the game yesterday with three generations of family-fans dating back to 1954. I’m glad the Orioles won big, we thoroughly enjoyed it, and even snagged a game ball for my son after the third out of the 8th inning.
