Shut down inning by Bleier is salt on the wound.

Probably all part of Elias' master plan to have this team lose. Send one of best relievers to an NL East team to help them beat us. i give the Marlins credit a bit, even though they are a rebuilding team, they are at least trying a bit to put on a competing team. Meanwhile the Orioles are trading away any decent player and running Chris Davis out there every night.

Seriously though, I don’t mind letting Lakins pitch, but why bring in the trolls?

and why have Nunez at 3rd?

If I was swinging the bat like Stewart, I'd be happy to take a walk too.

The more I see of Stewart the less I want to see of him. That’s true of a couple other guys too. But I guess we have to let him hack for a while.

He has been awful this year but it's still early. Think you gotta run him out there this year and see what they got. Saying that, I don't think he's an everyday big leaguer.

Seriously piss poor effort by the Orioles hitters tonight. Pretty embarrassing to get 3-hit shutout from a team that hasn't played in a week.

Which team are we? The guys who swept the Rays or these schleps?

I missed another game. My sleep schedule sleep patterns are SOOOOOOOO screwed up... I laid down for a quick nap before the game about 4:30. When I woke up at MIDNIGHT I had missed the entire thing. Turned on the TV to watch the 11:30 replay and THANK GOD the Gnats are back playing! They're the replay tonight...

fml :ohlord:

 

 

So.... I'm not going to read the thread or the board. Or Roch. It's 1:30 am. I'm having my "morning" glass of coffee (yes BIG TALL GLASS) and I'm going to watch the 9 am MASN replay "live". So I have THAT going for me. 🙃

GO O'S!!!!

I know my vote! :D 

I think Tampa is not nearly as good as we thought they were going to be. That offense is not going to scare anyone.

With the number of teams going to the playoffs they have a bit of time to get their house in order.

    • Back to the Snell/Fairbanks/Anderson/Castillo even numbered game quartet to try and set up Buehler (and Kershaw?) v. The World Wednesday night. The Dodgers have clearly dented the relief aces, but I don't look for any process change in Game 6. This feels like it should be over 4-1 but for the gods putting their thumbs on the scale last night - an excellent bonus baseball gift.
    • You a few others really are missing my point. I'm done trying to make it. Read what I wrote in other posts.
    • Very good game tonight. Both pens were real good. 
    • That fact that he pointed out Anthony Sanders and his race as being the one screwed also made me question it.
    • I'm surprised by this comment, Tony.  I'm not sure how you can blame Elias for Yaz coming out of nowhere to perform as he has for the Giants.  You really think there was reason to expect that Elias should have seen that coming?  Wow.
    • I’m guessing that a claim was probably filed against Elias and the Orioles for pension fraud (possibly by the agent of a coach on the staff that didn’t get the pension benefits), but since MLB approved Holt before the season as one of the 4 coaches designated to receive pension benefits, that’s why this is a non-story.  The quote from the MLB spokesperson said Holt received prior approval from the league and shared it with the MLBPA, so the only possible explanation is that the MLBPA is challenging Holt’s approval since he wasn’t a full-time uniformed coach this year, and that is likely what this botched article by Bill Madden is attempting to convey.  Even if a charge of pension fraud was filed by the MLBPA, or the agent of a coach separate from the MLBPA, it sounds like it’s dead in the water because MLB released a statement saying Holt was approved and there is no ongoing investigation that could result in discipline for Elias/Orioles.     Simply put, Bill Madden did a piss poor job of reporting this accurately, and tried to connect it with the Astros, which is why the article lead with “Ex-Astros” and “fraud” to get readers to click on it.  In reality, all Madden had to do is verify the story with MLB, like our local beat writers did, and he would have been told that this is a non-issue because Holt received prior authorization from the league to receive pension benefits, meaning this was not some covert, fraudulent attempt by Elias to get Holt on the pension plan without going through the proper approval process.  That’s why most of us thought from the very start that this story didn’t pass the smell test, and now we know we were proven correct in that assessment.
