O's-Nats Game Suspended

It was pretty funny watching the Nat's ground crew though...

O's are looking good.  Right in the playoff mix.

If the Orioles blow the lead Friday I at least want them to file a useless complaint, just to be on the record.

If the Orioles are going to file a complaint and/or protest the game, I would hope that they would file it beforehand.

Sorry, I didn't realize this conversation had moved over here from the game thread.  I just posted this in the game thread:

To me, saying that the tarpaulin malfunctioned is to say it is ripped, has a hole in it, or somehow failed to prevent water from going through it.  The home team hiring the Keystone Kops as its grounds crew is hardly a malfunction of the tarpaulin.  The rule includes "unintentional operator error."  That part of the rule should be eliminated, IMO.  This was ridiculous, and the home team should be held accountable.  If the home team is behind - game over.  If the home team is ahead - suspended game.  Simple and fair.

Since the rule includes "unintentional operator error," there is no rules violation and, therefore, no grounds for protest.  The rule is a bad one, as written, IMO.  Yes, they can file a complaint, but that isn't time sensitive as far as the game is concerned, and means nothing for this season; but might help spur action as far as a future rules change preventing such a farce in future seasons.

I think the three stooges could have gotten it done faster. Depending on whether or not they were playing "Pop Goes The Weasel" on the PA.

OK, all anger and tongue-in-cheek humor aside, this is one of those things which good teams find a way to overcome and persevere.

Shit happens in life, and Major League Baseball is no exception ........ I was watching the game on WPIX-11 here in Brewster in August of 1978 in which the Orioles were the beneficiary of a very questionable rule when they were playing the Yankees at Memorial Stadium. With the Orioles leading by a score of 3-0, the Yankees scored 5 runs in the top of the 7th inning to take a 5-3 lead (or so they thought.) The Orioles were batting in the bottom half of the inning when torrential downpours came, forcing the game to be delayed. When the rain stopped, the field was no longer playable. Under the rules at the time, since the entire 7th inning had not yet been completed, they went backwards to the last full inning that was completed ........ which meant that the 5 runs that the Yankees scored were wiped away, and the Orioles were declared winners of the game by a score of 3-0.

So to make a long story a little bit longer, the Orioles need to simply suck it up and complete the win on Friday ........ shit happens, and good teams roll with the punches when it does, they don't scream bloody murder because of an injustice.

Actually I don't believe I ever saw that one. Funny because I've seen almost all of their shorts over the years.

Yes.  Had to make it baseball related.  😉

And that's a sweet sample in that one, two actually.

Prime '91 hip hop.

Third Bass was an epic 90s rap group...Steppin to the AM and Triple Stage Darkness are legit. Serch being goofy looking hurt the band IMO. However producing Nas’s first album is a career...in any league.

 

Also scew the Nats and their nonsense ground crew. Next time they’ll just have the sprinklers accidentally malfunction.

    • I thought he looked a lot better than his first outing. He threw some good sliders. I like that he’s not afraid to throw his change up. He was better at locating it in this outing, but it doesn’t appear to be a great pitch to me judging by the hitters reaction to it. I think if he locates it well, it’ll be fine, but he can’t get away with even occasional poor location of it like someone like John Means can because I don’t think his change up is deceptive enough. He was better with his fastball location as well, but the velocity was only 89-91. I was surprised by that since I know he improved his velocity last year and from what I remember he was touching 96 MPH in spring training.    Overall, I was encouraged by what I saw last night. Hopefully, his velocity will be a little better if he gets in another game this year.
    • First Hobgood and now Harvey. We are no longer allowed to draft any pitcher, starting with the letter "H" LOL  
    • Who's this "we," homie?   I agree, it's wise not to speculate on what he's done or not done in the offseasons.  But even there isn't a full season next year and they don't have to pay him the full amount, it's still extremely hard to justify him being on the roster.  I'm sure it's hard to put an actual dollar value on at bats and playing time for younger players that need it to develop, but that's essentially what they'd be doing if they kept Davis on the roster for any reason for any length of time. Except it doesn't have to be that way.  They're spending the money no matter what (I'm assuming they'll have a full season with no fans or limited fans next year) so it's high time that they cut him and let more deserving players have a spot, 162 games or not.
    • Yep.   We will never really know exactly how much work Davis put in compared to what other players do.    So, I choose not to speculate about it.   It’s well past the point where we can hope for some Hail Mary offseason turnaround, the guy is far below a replacement level player, and now we have a lot of guys who need to be in the majors taking the at bats that Davis might take.    The only justification for keeping him is the possibility that a full season won’t be played and we won’t have to pay him the full amount he’s owed.    That’s a complex decision that I can’t comment on very intelligently.    
    • Why not Bannon? He should be up by now anyway.
    • This is where I'm at. My first wish is for Trey to live and love and happy life that is cancer free. Obviously second to this is his return to his previous form as a baseball player, but there is an inherent risk that won't happen. AS Moose pointed out, many athletes have returned to form and we can hope and pray that he does, but more importantly, that Trey will be well long term.
