Recommended Posts

Come on people. Root for the good guys. Only four more, Good or bad, enjoy ‘em while we got ‘em.

Plenty of time to argue about the roster after Sunday.

Go O’s!

I'm here.   Hanser with a steal.  

Can't believe Mountcastle's ball didn't touch the wall.  It was a moon shot and when Chavis caught it his back was pretty much against the monster.  Lower that launch angle 1 degree and we'd have heard that satisfying thud of ball hitting the green monster.

Nice rally so far.   3 in, nobody out, runners on 2d and 3rd.  

Double play could be a rally killer unless Iggy can get this runner home.

If the Orioles win tonight, they will have salvaged a 10-game split (5 games apiece) in their 2020 season series with the Red Sox.

Ugh.   Great play by Chavis, who’s botched several in this series.

I bet Urias didn’t tag. On one replay he looked like he was barely past the base when Chavis was already up and throwing.

Well, good inning but could’ve been better.    To be honest, I’m not sure the catcher tagged Urías before his foot reached the plate, even though the ball was there in plenty of time.

I’ve been on my bike listening, but not watching. I have a question: why didn’t Mullins tag up and go to third on the throw to home?

Meanwhile, I’m getting used to Kevin Brown, though I’ll never take him home to meet the ‘rents, but that color guy is awful, and I mean even awful for Baltimore.

Could be a couple of things.

Assumed ball wouldn’t be caught or they would cut throw off and he would be easy out at 3rd. 

Urias had to make a mistake to me. He didn’t get back to the bag in time.

It’s Geoff Arnold and Brett Hollander tonight on radio.

    • Given our division, until we are league average players in the international signing market then we are always going to face long rebuilds. 
    • I tend to agree that Sisco is not .100 worse at the big league level than he was in the minors. Seems to me that he is likely the kind of guy that you need to go with everyday. 525 ABs over for seasons means he's played sporadically at best.
    • The answer is so obvious that “yellow” shouldn’t even have been an option. BTW when I first saw this I initially thought the first option was “Nate’s HAIR is called Fair.” And I was, like,”well duh. Of COURSE it’s fair. He’s Blonde.” If we subtract the no-brainer answer, Nate’s home run would be my choice.  in 2014, even without Manny, we won 96 games, and the Royals were so lucky that I’m not sure a phalanx of archangels could have beaten them. In 2016, we were enjoying a dead cat bounce,  and even if we’d pulled off the WC game, it’s doubtful we’d have gone any farther. But in 2012, we had a great team, we were on the rise, and the Yankees had serious problems. I’m not sure we’d have gone on to win that game 5, but golly, that would have been one of the all time sweet memories, regardless of what happened next.  
    • That’s the one I would choose if it was an option. The 1996 ALCS might have swung differently if Richie Garcia does his job.
    • They all sucked! But I’m going with Nelson Cruz.   Also ...missing is the Mayer interference not called!
    • The bigger impact was the repercussions of the mistake internally. I feel like Angelos got gun shy in free agency after the Albert Belle deal. But with the Glenn Davis trade they gutted the depth of a team that had trouble developing talent. As a kid after Cal Ripken there was Boddicker , Mussina, and a whole lot of disappointment in player drafting and development.
    • I know most will say Chris Davis but some things cannot be measured  by cold hard dollars.  The Glenn Davis trade not only  was lopsided with the talent the Franchise gave up for him, but also the psychological damage it did to the fan base.  Glen Davis was to be the RH power hitter needed, it seemed like forever,  and was thought to be a sure thing, but was not to be.  I know I felt crushed for such a long time by how that turned out.  We all make mistakes and both of these situations were mistakes,  big time.
