It's not.  Maybe we should pump the breaks on Hays to the HOF talk for now.

I think we should wait another two maybe three games.  To get a good look and make an informed decision.

I don't know man.  Sure he hit a double by why did he wait until they already had two outs?  He should have led off the inning with the double, or better yet, had Wilkerson walk then hit the double.  That way it would be second and third with no outs.

What makes you think that, if it happened like that, Stevie wouldn't have been thrown out trying to score?

OK, I’ve been working, and now I get to check in on the game, but before checking in the score, I came here to read the comments so as to brace myself for the bad news.

And as near as I can tell the bad news is that John gave up a homerun but until then he was pitching very well, and Davis is bad and people are complaining that he’s playing instead of Stewart, and I would also rather Stewart play, but from what I’ve seen Stewart isn’t anything to write home about either. And can we share a moment of thanks that at least Smith is not in the field?

Three hits for Hays

I love his athleticism. He is a fun player to watch.  

Just hope he makes enough contact.

    • When I read something like this it makes me realize how lucky I am to have witnessed the things I have in my life time. I'm telling my age but I've seen many great accomplishments by the Orioles through the years. I saw Frank Robinson win the triple crown. I saw no-hitters by Tom Phoebus and Jim Palmer. I saw the team win 108 games one year and 109 games one year. I saw an Oriole pitcher win the Cy Young award six times in a 12 year span. I've seen some of the greatest fielders in the history of the game in Brooks Robinson, Mark Belanger, and Jim Palmer. I've seen six rookies of the year and five American League MVP's and the list goes on and on. I guess the only thing I haven't seen is a perfect game.
    • Preference list for pick #2- 1. Martin 2. Torkelson 3. Veen  4. Hancock 5. Gonzales 6. Lacy Torkelson and Martin are pretty close, but obviously the positional value is the clincher. Martin's power just hasn't taken that next step like you would hope for, and his pull happy approach gives me a little hesitation. Torkelson has zero questions with the bat.  Veen pushed himself into the top tier like I said he could, but unfortunately I think that means he doesn't have a chance to be picked by us to go underslot here and overslot on another pick. With the draft only getting 5 rounds, I think it means we have to go with a safer option from college and you don't lose much upside with the choices from college. To me Hancock is a much more complete pitcher than Lacy. Hancock more consistently throws above 95 with ease. Lacy's slider is slightly better than Hancock's, but Hancock's changeup is plus and Lacy doesn't even have a third pitch. Hancock's command is just a lot more refined than Lacy's, and his delivery just screams starter. Lacy's delivery is just more high effort. If I'm picking a college pitcher, a two pitch pitcher with effort in the delivery just scares me.
    • Turning to hitters: SAM BOWENS was also a 1964 rookie flash with his 22 homers and .263/.323/.453/.776, 114 OPS+. I rooted loyally for him during his remaining seasons, during which he batted above .200 only once: .210 on the '66 team.                      
    • Y'all forgotten Jim Hardin! 18-13, 2.51 ERA at age 24 for the '68 O's, his second ML season. Never won more than 6 after that. And 1964 RoY Wally Bunker: 19-5, 2.69 ERA. Both were plagued by sore arms.  
    • He was one of my favorite memories when I was able to go to Spring Training yearly from 2000 - 2005.  😰
