It’s Bordick and Garceau. The radio guys are worse. I just turned the sound down, because I can’t handle the Boston guys either.

i was responding to the claim that Garceau are the worst possible TV team. i was trying to say that Hunter/Bordick was right there with them.

I'm continually surprised there are so many people in their 20s and 30s named Dylan. Were they all named Dylan at birth, or did some of them start out with the first name Zimmerman and change it in their late teens? 

I bet Dillon Tate has to correct the spelling of his first name pretty often.

As far as I know, there aren't people my age with first names taken from the last names of our parents' favorite pop musicians like Benny Goodman, Louis Armstrong, Lionel Hampton , the Dorseys and Paul Whiteman.

If current new parents give their kids names taken from their favorite rappers, that could get interesting.

Ends with an "N."

On the bright side, I heard that any team that wasn't mathematically eliminated had to start quarantining for the postseason today.

The Orioles are free of that restriction.   They can go out and Par-Tay!

Someone tonight compared Stewart in LF to a drunk coming out of a bar on New Year's Eve. Maybe DJ was getting an early start.

No.   I'm not sure what quarantining means, I guess no family contact, stay in hotel room?

    • I don't see them paying for a FA stopgap in a year they won't be expected to contend.
    • I was at that game in 1993. I was seated in the lower deck of Yankee Stadium on the third-base side, looking out toward right field.  I saw the play from pretty much the same angle that the umpire would have seen it. And I didn't know, until I read about it in the paper the next day, what had happened, because I completely lost track of the ball as it descended against the backdrop of three decks of seats filled with fans.  I assumed, since Mattingly jogged around the bases, that it had landed in the seats beyond the wall. Perhaps the umpire, from his vantage point on the field, should have been close enough to see the play better than I could.  But I could understand why it could have been tough for him.
    • Zimmermann had a bad debut (3 IP 5 ER) but a good second outing (4 IP 1 ER).   So, I certainly didn’t get a negative impression of him.   I look forward to seeing what he can contribute next year.   
    • For 2B how about bringing back Jonathan Schoop or Jurickson Profar. Todd Feazier one year  deal for3B. 
    • I agree with RZ about sticking with Ruiz.  We don't have anyone better internally unless someone switches positions.   If there is a clear upgrade available at 3B for the major league roster, I think we could pursue anyone that is cheap - cheap to acquire and cheap to pay.  Ruiz was available as a cheap, failed prospect and if we could acquire another one and try it again, I would be fine with that.
    • I think I tend to be not as high on overslots as most people. Let's take Hokum Sven Kim as a hypothetical.  Hokum's number is $1.5 million.  He's still there in the eleventh round and the O's pick him up and with the savings from going underslot in the first round given Hokum his 1.5M. Now some folks will say the O's picked up a mid second round talent in the eleventh round, since 1.5M is slot for the 49.5 pick in the draft. The way I look at it, if other teams though Hokum was a mid second round talent they would have just picked him and coughed up the 1.5M. Either Hokum's number would have been even higher if he had gone earlier, which is possible, or teams didn't think his price matched his talent and he's probably closer to say a third round talent.
    • Maybe not even better than what we have now, but cheaper (i.e. not arbitration eligible). When you are in such a cost cutting move that you are getting rid of coaches, I think they will look long and hard at going to arbitration with anyone who is unlikely to be a prime MLB performer for the next several years. At least they won't get any flak for cancelling Fanfest to save a few pennies this offseason.
