Winter Warm-up, Birdland Brunch, and Brews and O's

Recommended Posts

Eddie Murray, Dwight Smith, and Rio Ruiz are at an event at Westminster on the 9th from 2-3PM, then at an event at Flying Dog Brewery in Frederick that starts at 4PM.

Cutting it a bit close, I would guess that's about a 45 minute drive and they have an hour to make it.   Hope they don't hit traffic or bad weather.

I wonder who will drive?   I assume if the Hall of Famer wants to drive, no one will deny him the privelege.

Cool! Death to FanFest!

This goes beyond Baltimore which I think is extremely smart. Builds in community service. Player appearances. Happy hour thing sounds fun. What's not to like?

I’d still probably prefer Fanfest, but this shows that the marketing team wasn’t just mailing it in this winter; rather, they’re trying something new (for this team, anyway).    I might consider going to the Frederick events.

I plan to go to the one at Flying Dog Sunday afternoon.   I've enjoyed their beer for years but have never visited their brewery in Frederick, so it's about time I did that anyway..   And Eddie will be there!   Not to mention GrayRod and Mountcastle, and Sig.

That's just two days before pitchers and catchers report.

The one Saturday morning in Ellicott City as actually by far the closest to me.   Might make that one too.

Yeah, I would go to that one if my wife wasn't 8 and a half months pregnant.

Kinda irritating they don't have one in Baltimore though. We have breweries too! One of the breweries even makes a beer honoring Eddie Murray!

Gunnar, Grayson & DL at the happy hours?   Keep an eye on those young ‘uns!

City fans, no crying in baseball, you had your chance back on Dec 14 at Camden Yards at the Winter Warm Up.

Yeah Sorry I realized that after typing,  only the braintrust and some nasty weather..... they apparently had some good giveaways, not so sure if beer was available.

Says no autographs at the Happy Hours, are they going to have a Q&A or what? Do I get to get drunk with Eddie Murray?

Why wouldn’t you get drunk with Eddie Murray?

The Ellicott City one sounds cool for me.

So a 1 hour event in Westminster in the cold at the McDaniel football stadium? What am I missing? I love the Orioles but it doesn’t sound very enticing.

Go to the earlier event on Carroll Creek. A short walk down the creek takes you to Idiom (my favorite), Smoketown and Attaboy breweries, and McClintok distillery.

    • I don’t care how old he is.  That said nice find.  
    • Did you see Bauer did a tomahawk chop when he left the game? Such an edgelord.
    • Reds imploding in 9th of another 1-0 game; Ozuna beat Day 2 Raisel to make it 3-0 (and ruin the drama of would Braves really use Melancon, 15th on the team in K-BB%, in a 1-run game); now Suarez has dropped a pop up to let Albies get on with a second chance. While I'm generally always rooting for a deciding game, Nick and O'Day are enough for me to be content to get to see them chase that One Shining Moment another week. Will the Reds opening offer to FA Bauer include a stake in franchise ownership?

    • Yea, no matter how the rest turn out, barring of course some kid's whose name I don't know turning into an all-star catcher, AR bombing will still be a big blow. Even if we end up with a playoff team, losing out on an MVP candidate at catcher is still going to hurt.

    • These threads are about the strengths of the organization as a whole at the various positions, not the current strength of the major league team.   I agree grades should not be “completely” based on players in the minors, especially ones who haven’t played an official game above low A.    But the guy was considered to be the easiest 1:1 choice since Harper.    That’s not nothing.
