Brit on 2013 Orioles

Very disappointing. I wonder what new words Wei-yin Chen learned from his honorable coach.

So Adair didn’t work well with Arrieta. 😭.  What about the other pitcher’s that responded?Those pitching staffs lacked starting pitching talent, but we’re tough as nails. Wonder why?

2013 was noteworthy for being the Chris Davis Show and little else. It was a mediocre season.

Yet the sixth most wins in the past quarter century for this organization.

An organization that celebrates getting out of bed. Few other teams would pat themselves on the back for 85 wins.

I'm not sure what that means or how you'd qualify it.  In any case I'd much rather have pitchers who're good than pitchers who could win an arm wrestling match with Sam Elliott.

KInda feels unfair to mention Bergesen like this and imply his flunking out of baseball was tied directly to Adair.  If I'm recalling correctly, injuries did him in far more than anything else.

But the rest of these guys went on to have some measure of improvement once Adair was out of the picture.  So yeah.

Have you arm wrestled Sam Elliott?

    • This is the Orioles' fourth losing season in a row. Someone who's been a fan for 50 years undoubtedly remembers that the team went 14 seasons in a row with losing records from 1998 through 2011. Then the next year they made the playoffs and won their first round game and all of a sudden it was a lot of fun again. The good times will come again.  Can't guarantee it'll be next year, but they will come.  
    • You’re right about some things, wrong about others. watch and see if things get better. I think they will.
    • I think at the moment, we get the 8th pick
