I think he will be older than that.

Yea, but you think the Orioles won't be in contention until 2077, when they're the Austin Roughriders and Baltimore has long since been flattened to make way for a new expressway between DC and Philly.

I believe the Atlantic Ocean will flood Baltimore before the expressway arrives.

and DJ Stewart who would never have made it out of A ball if he had not been drafted in the first round.

This is pretty dumb because he's put up some decent numbers.   But I'll say that I believe DJ Stewart is going to get more opportunities because of his draft status than a guy putting up the same numbers who was drafted later.

Fight me, @Can_of_corn

I thought Regan was retirement age when he was the O's manager 25 years ago.  Good for him.  Besides Connie Mack, who owned the team and couldn't be fired, I've never heard of a MLB coach or manager that old.

Jack McKeon was 80 when the Marlins hired him for the last 90 games of the 2011 season.

Yaz, 2-4 tonight with a two run HR (4) vs the Dodgers tonight.

Wait!  What?  The new brigade (and @Can_of_corn) expunged Little Yaz.  @wildcard and the rest of us wanted to see him flourish with the O's, but "he probably needed a change of scenery".    Oh well!

 

For sure, Joey Rickard is gonna be a monster somewhere, like Christian Walker, I know it!  😇

Dan Duquette had a history with the Red Sox and certainly knew Grandpa Carl, even if only from spring training visits.  With the ship sinking last September you might have thought Dan would have given the younger Yaz a call up more as a warm & fuzzy to Carl, a HOF acquaintance.

I’m very happy Li’l Yaz is making the most of his opportunity.    At the end of the day, I think he’ll show himself to be nothing more than a AAAA player.    But if I’m wrong, it won’t be the first time, or the last.

    • Oh, I don’t agree with it, but after years of having arguments about “sunk costs” I’m left without any other impression.  In my mind, including Davis when the team was horrible, and now Severino or Franco, these guys are taking the roster spot of someone more deserving. Not always, but there’s a pretty good case for someone to take any of those spots.
    • Per MLB rules online, the ball is live if it is “unintentional interference.”
    • He was emptying the tank there.   The first inning or two, he was slower.   The first touch of 94-95 I noticed wasn't until a few innings along, on a 2 out 2 strike pitch.   But he really seemed to pick up steam in the middle. Hartford seemed kind of terrible, but at least he held serve, if not a little more.   On the Either/Or, I'd easily pick Rodriguez still.
    • It was Roth followed by Roth tonight in Delmarva.   I don’t recall that happening before with them.  
    • For the second time in a couple of weeks, an Orioles ball boy touched a fair ball that bounced in his direction tonight and the ball was ruled dead when he touched it. Unlike the other incident, this ball literally came right at the ball boy’s chair. He barely had to move his glove to a spot maybe 18 inches under his lap.  He was mightily embarrassed when he realized his mistake.   The other incident was more egregious, though neither was good and the the ball boy/girl supervisor really needs to call a meeting and let all these kids know it’s an unacceptable mistake.  (I saw another ball boy/girl do this in a recent O’s road game, I believe). That said, here’s my question.  Assume the kid jumps from his chair and the ball either rattles around under the chair or ricochets off one of the legs and back out.   In either instance, Is that a live ball? I think the kid is supposed to try to move the chair to avoid those scenarios, but I’m still curious what the ruling would  be.   By the way, a few innings later the same ball boy did a nice job of snagging a foul ball that had bounced off the side wall and was about to go into the field of play.   The fans sitting over there cheered him, something I doubt they would have done normally but they did it to, quite literally, “cheer him up” after his prior mistake.  Classy move.  
    • I don’t mind it much when the TV guys do it, since you can see the action.  It bothers me more on radio, where you’re dependent on the announcers to know what’s going on.   A skilled announcer can do an interview between the action but describe the game decently at the same time, and minimize the spillover.
