Heya.

I thought then and I think now the most boss move he could have made was to tie the record then sit out the next game.

Would have done even more for his legacy.

 

I know Mr Gehrig only stopped playing due to the illness that eventually claimed his life so it seems fitting for me to tie, not break the record.

Sorry if there is already a thread elsewhere ...... I just wanted to stop in and say that I can't believe it's been 25 years !!! Hope y'all are well.

I had a cross-country race at Waveny Park in New Canaan, CT that evening, so I had my girlfriend tape the game. 

I got home about 10 minutes before he hit the home run into the left-field stands.

I had to work both 2130 and 2131 until 9pm.   No dvr or taping but drove to my girlfriends to watch the game(s).    Don’t want to mention what speeds my Chevy chevette made it too trying to get there.    I have rewatched both so often I honestly have no idea at point in the games I arrived.  But even with all that it was amazing to see.

Greatest sporting event of my lifetime and I doubt it will ever be topped.

For me I'd go with the Miracle on Ice.

It was absolutely stunning to be in stadium.  I was surprised.  Had goosebumps as it was happening.

I was a college baseball player and drove five hours each way for it.  Best decision I ever made.

I was lucky enough to attend.   Sitting not far from where Cal’s homer landed.    It was an amazing night.

Hey buddy! I get the sentiment but as Mr. Gehrig is a Yankee and Cal is an Oriole I am cool with how it unfolded! It also helps that Cal went a fair bit past this point, which makes it a pretty strong case it's rightfully his title. Also, Cal had to endure longer seasons, which I consider to be a feather in his cap (albeit with better trainers and conditioning available to him).

We went to 2130 and watched 2131 live (and recorded it). I was a junior in HS at Annapolis. My brother and I watched the taped game probably a dozen times over the next two years! It was awesome.

Same boat -- watched that taped game many many times (even brought it to college with me).

I mean, some Orioles dates are so important you have to stop by and say, "Hi", right?

    • Barry Bonds did ok...    
    • If Ayala can improve his shooting that would be awesome.  Today was a good start.  I think Wiggins needs to improve his handles and slashing game to be the scorer that would need.  His catch and shoot game is pure.   Gonna need Marial to improve his offensive game as well.  We already know he will defend the rim (theoretically).  Needs to work on his conditioning.  Ultimately I think our lack of interior presence will be our demise, unless Smith and Scott really ball their face off. We have that Swiss guy Revas as well, I'm not expecting much from him though.  The lack of backcourt depth also might hurt unless Dockery and Smart grow quickly.  Can Ayala be the primary ball handler and distributor?  Maybe. I don't think this team will fall off as badly as most think.  Like you said, Morsell/Ayala/Wiggins will keep us in most games.  If Scott and Hamilton (who was a top 100 recruit going into BC) can step up then I think we could surprise some people.  I see us sneaking into the tournament as a 7-10 seed.  
    • It’s a supply and demand thing.  Whether someone offers X amount of dollars is irrelevant.  The Os And their structure, could use his bat and his production.   Most teams don’t have that combo of at bats and money they can spend on a player with his skill set.     The Os do...and the idea that other teams chose not to do it is irrelevant to his value to this organization.  The idea that they may be looking into Puig (conjecture) and brought on a LH DH type at REINFORCES the idea that this is salary driven, not producing driven imo.     My only argument with this decision is that this isn’t solely or even largely driven by roster management despite what Elias says.  He is lying for management.
    • Your tone of authority when you are clearly in a fog is admirable.  Anyone who thought his arbitration number was a bargain, as you suggest, could have offered a warm body to secure his services before he hit the open market.  What won't make sense is if any team offers him 2M or more now that he's available to any team that wants him.
    • There are three vaccines, possibly four or five, if you trust the Chinese and Russians. Every factory on the world is going to be producing them. We may delay the start of spring training(only three months away) but I don’t think the season will start late. We may have distanced crowds, though.
    • No, it absolutely is the formula and what’s he’s worth.  That’s a fact. However, there are only a few teams that need a DH, so it’s not surprising that the market isn’t there..plus, you have announced that you are cutting him, so why trade for him with so little completion?
    • Nevin may get reps at 3B, LF, and DH.  Shaw fits in well as a 1B, LF, DH option too
