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.

    • o   While the Royals did qualify for the post-season with an overall losing record, they did not qualify based on that losing record. They did so by going 30-23 in the second half of the split-season, after having gone 20-30 in the first half.   https://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/KCR/1981.shtml     That was also the season in which the Cincinnati Reds had the best overall record in the Major Leagues ........ but DID NOT qualify for the post-season.   https://www.baseball-reference.com/teams/CIN/1981.shtml       o
    • George Breett and his 1981 teammates would disagree with this post.
    • Maybe you should get back to your "variety of life experiences" instead of just posting comments that intend to upset people who are mostly fans of a team.  There is nothing Ryan Mountcastle did this season to project him as a failed prospect.  NOTHING.  I am not ready to reserve a spot to go to Cooperstown for him but so far so good.  Austin Hayes despite going on the DL again did ok as well.  Of course your post declaring Manny Machado a failed contract after he had a MVP type season shows your baseball knowledge as well.  
    • o   The Brewers and the Astros are the first teams ever with a losing record to qualify for the post-season (they both finished at 29-31.)   The 1973 Mets had the worst record ever for a team to make it to the World Series (82-79 with 1 Rain-out.)  The 2006 Cardinals had the worst record ever for a team to win the World Series (83-78 with 1 Rain-out.)    o
    • Harvey misses his targets, too.  Maybe his stuff is good enough to get away with it at times but he rarely seems to be able to hit the catcher's glove where he's holding it.
    • Home games this week.   Neutral sites for division and LCS rounds and WOrld Series.   I think the two Texas stadiums and maybe one in California?
