Was looking forward to watching the Os in Cincy this year and now they don’t return next year.  Guess the family and I are traveling to Cleveland.

It feels like it’s been years since they closed the season at home.

2018. Vs Houston. Buck and Adam Jones last game.

I think before that is was 2015. Before that was 2013, then 2011, The comeback vs Boston. I’m doing this off top of my head. I’ll look to confirm.

Boston/NY again?! No opening day for me next season in that case. Three out of the first four home weekend series are also against them. No thank you.

Opening Day is different. Their fans won’t overtake the park that day.

Yes, I've been to 12 Opening Days at Camden Yards. I don't attend AL East games anymore. I grew tired of the current divisions and unbalanced schedule many years ago.

Yeah, I hate when the Blue Jays fans and Rays fan come and take over Camden Yards!

I avoid Yankees and Red Sox games too. Why pay more to be surrounded by people rooting against your team.

44 games against the Blue Jays and Rays since 1992, and 34 against Boston and NY. That's enough for me. Please realign the divisions.

How would you like them realigned?

    • Yeah...in the minors. I don’t know anything about the guy, but if his defense is bad, he’s not really a utility guy, because utility guys by definition are glove-good at multiple positions. If he hits really well, he’s a 1B/DH type, and if he doesn’t hit well, he’s nothing. I just checked his stats at BBR and his D at both positions is poor.
    • What constitutes blazing? .400 OBP AND ~.900 OPS each of the last two years is pretty good. 
    • Me either but I voted Rom and Smith.
    • Does anyone know where to get minor league team home and away splits?  A quick perusal of Ashville hitters 2019 splits only reinforced the idea that Vavra 's 2019 numbers were possibly inflated due to a favorable home park.
    • Who are the #17 and #18 Prospects
    • You are right about the hours played each day. It is a big part of the culture on the islands. I have been coaching kids for the last 15 years in Central Florida. Like Drungo said, kids have more options and distractions in the US. It can be tough to get a kid to put the work in away from the field when we only practice two days a week in the younger ages. The higher end travel teams do not practice in the high school years, not at all. They can't because their kids are from all over the state, or even the nation. They show up and play for a week to ten days and go home until the next tournament. Meanwhile, the DR kids are at a Baseball Academy year round for 2-3 years before they sign a contract. It really isn't a level playing field, developmentally. There are a few places where you can go to a high school that is a baseball academy, TNXL is one here in Altamonte Springs, Florida. TNXL is run by the Scorpions organization.  More kids in Florida play baseball than many Northern states, but the burnout rate is high in Florida as well. Year round baseball, or any sport for that matter, is not a good thing long term. Overuse injuries, such as all of the elbow and shoulder issues for pitchers are a direct result of this. College coaches all want to know what other sports a kid plays. The three sport stars are discouraged from playing three sports. Football is still king in Florida. Baseball also does not develop athleticism, although it demands it. So you have to play explosive movement sports, and/or train at a complex to develop the athleticism. That gets expensive, along with everything else you have to do to have a chance. My son worked out at the same place that Ryan Mountcastle and Blake Bortles worked out at. Excellent results.  The gap is closing with the proliferation of indoor facilities. Kids can work on their skills year round now. Seeing more kids from Pennsylvania in recent years who play the game at a very high level. That is a very good thing IMO.
