Fox announcers aren't paying that much attention to the game. Just as well, since they have little to add. Don't these guys do any preparation?

I noticed that too. It seems like they are calling the game from a studio at Fox Sports in Los Angeles.

Wow.

Well I guess if there was an ugliest player in MLB contest, you could start and stop it just by looking at this Gonsolin guy.  That's a face only a mother could love.

Makes you wonder how a guy like Kenny Albert got a gig like this. Hard to figure. :rolleyes:  

Interesting non-analysis of Ruiz's baserunning. It's just baseball, so apparently it's not worth discussing.

Just my opinion, but he's got a ways to go to catch the former Tiger Don Mossi.

I was going for current players but yes, that was one ugly dude, too.

I think the Orioles are better off with a HR-oriented offense. That makes it hard -- not impossible, but hard -- for them to screw up running the bases.

    • Good replies but I did not say to sign any expensive free agents. I suggested filling in as Elias suggested on last weeks Hot Stove show the need for an experienced middle infielder (Iglesias), starting pitching (Wheeler or Odorizzi) and relief pitching Hudson and Harris.  None of them will break the bank but will solve his needs. Most of these players will probably get 1 year or 2 year deals. The starters I named may push for 3 years but I would stay away from any requiring more than 2 years since we have a number of young starters moving up soon. 70 wins is obtainable with a few additions. How many games did our pen blow last season.  Givens alone cost us probably 8 or more games and the rest of the pen others. I think most of us would be happy if we reached 70 in 2020.
    • Yeah I guess it doesn’t matter that he’s nearly 30. 
    • No.... .....and it is one of the most depressing / infuriating / frustrating things about the last two years. The guy is a millstone around the neck of the franchise. Mancini should be playing first. Anyone could see the rebuild coming, knew it would be difficult, but looked forward to seeing the emerging players. Some will flame out, some will flicker with hope, and some (Means seems to be the first) will exceed expectations. But C F'ing Davis watching belt high 91 mph sinkers for strike three with that deer in the headlights walk back to the dugout look.....   ugh. That I wish we could be spared.
    • As a state employee, I enjoy watching people dig themselves deeper into holes.
    • Doesn’t bother me that Gammons mentioned he was dumped by the Orioles.    That’s part of the story.   
    • Nope.    But we’re talking about next year.    Elias says Davis is following a regimen they set for him.   I’m not optimistic it will work but we’ll see.   Honestly the regimen may have more to do with execution than approach, if you follow me.
