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.

    • Difference being, the home team was ahead in the Wrigley Field game.  To me, the grounds crew is the home team's responsibility.  If the home team is ahead or tied when such an incident occurs, suspend the game.  If the home team is behind - game over.  That is fair.
    • Yes.  Had to make it baseball related.  😉 And that's a sweet sample in that one, two actually. Prime '91 hip hop.
    • Did you intentionally spell Bass wrong so I'd be left scratching my head? Lol!
    • I was also under the impression that the lefty reliever was done. My recollection may not be accurate, but I think I remember that the Nats' manager had come out of the dugout to remove the lefty reliever, Freeman, and summon a new pitcher from the bullpen.  MASN broke for a commercial, and when they came back, the grounds crew was starting their misadventures with the tarp. Did the Nats actually remove Freeman from the game, or did the umps call for the tarp before the manager made his way out to the mound? If the manager told the ump that he was taking Freeman out, I would assume that whoever he had called for from the bullpen was officially in the game when it was halted, even though he never threw  a pitch, and that guy will be required to either finish the inning or face three batters when play resumes on Friday. One piece of good news for the Orioles - if they had resumed the game today after a rain delay and Fry's arm would have cooled down, Hyde almost certainly would have had to replace Fry when the bottom of the sixth started.  Now he will have the option of leaving Fry in the game if he so chooses.
    • Actually I don't believe I ever saw that one. Funny because I've seen almost all of their shorts over the years.
    • Yeah, I was confused by the interference call.  If Diaz was calling interference on the batter, the batter should be out, but he wasn't.  I didn't see umpire's interference, but perhaps that is what happened.  If the catcher's arm hits the umpire and the runner is safe, that is umpire's interference, and the runner is returned to first.  Had the runner been out, the umpires interference is waived off.
