Good decision to go for it on 4th down (hindsight 😁) SEA couldn't stop the run all drive.

I was ready to throw my laptop into the wall if that didn't work out.

You know I was all ready to be pissed at Harbaugh for not taking the 3 points, but he went old school and gave the ball to their best player!

I feel you buddy! I like the idea that Harbaugh looked at Jackson and he was like, "Let's do it!"

That last drive is a prime example of why we are so much better off w Lamar than Flacco. None of that would have been possible with Joe at the helm.

I'm not even sure how anyone can argue the other way any more. this may be the first time since The Kubiak year that I look forward to the offense taking the field.

It really was a bad call. The Refs really don't have any feel for the game.

By the way, i would really like to say how good Humphrey is as a player.

The strike zone business low needs to leave.  I get that you want to enforce a strike zone high/around the head, but it's so hard to enforce low.  I'm guessing it was called because of that absurd knees/below-the-knees rule.  But arm tackles around the legs are about as low risk tackles as you can get.  If you want to stop spearing below the waist, sure.  But don't throw the flag because the defender wrapped up the QB somewhere in the vicinity of his knees.

It's time for the ravens to impose their will and run the ball.  Might be tough with the calls.

With the QB and RB they have, they should be doing that 90% of the time anyway.  Especially when you walk into a game w/ Snead and Boykin as your top 2 receivers.

    • The part of this no one (at least that I've seen) talks about is what is the impact of sign stealing?  Of course we have no real data whatsoever.  No double-blind studies of how Jose Altuve would hit with and without knowing what's coming.  We have no idea how often he got the signs.  We have some apples-to-pears data from home/road games, but home/road splits are going to be different anyway.  And the data is mixed; Altuve had a big home split last year, but an equally big away split in 2018. It's like PEDs.  No really good data on anything, so the assumption is that it takes an average dude and turns him into an MVP.  But the reality is almost certainly much messier, much less clear cut.  Some people did it all the time, some rarely, some never.  The benefits were almost certainly all over the place from negative impacts from side effects to massive performance gains.  But we're just guessing.  Same thing with sign stealing.  Some will assume that this is worth 25 wins to the Astros, but we have no idea if it's even a significant thing.  For all we know it's like corking your bat; the benefits of that over legal bats are usually zero or worse.  Sign stealing has been so prevalent over the years we've all heard the stories of batters who didn't want to know.  It messes with their approach and their heads if they're tipped off to what's probably coming. In the end we can probably make the assumption that stealing signs helps the average batter somewhat.  But we have no idea of the actual impact.
    • I think “otherworldly” is a huge overstatement of what he’d need to be offensively to compensate for his defense.      Last year he was worth 0.1 rWAR, -0.2 fWAR, so basically replacement level.   He was 48th of 68 catchers who had at least 100 plate appearances in fWAR, so that places him solidly in the middle of second string catchers in overall value.    With a decent improvement in his offense, he’d be above average overall for a backup catcher.     Somewhere between .750-.775 OPS would take him off the cusp, IMO.   I don’t consider that “otherworldly.” By the way, I’m using WAR because it’s available, but I don’t completely trust it for catchers.    
    • Yes, but we have out performed them in the offseason getting rid of Villar and Bundy. 
    • This one slipped by me until Roch mentioned it today in his blog.   He was signed on Jan 10th. This looks like a Wojo signing to me.    Long time minor league starter,  who has had a cup of coffee in the majors. From the Dominican. Between AAA and the winter league his stats this past season are: 19-3,    2.01 ERA,  29 S,   188.1 IP,  171 H,   162 SO,  1.019 WHIP He played with Houston at AAA in 2016 going 12-1, 3.12 ERA in the PCL.   So Elias knows  him well. Valdez doesn't look like someone that is ticketed for the AAA rotation that already has 6 starters in it.   If he shows something in ST he could be in the O's rotation or long relief.  If he doesn't show enough in ST he is probably gone. https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=valdez001ces
