Orioles Beat Red Sox, 1969

The entire game is included ...... no commercials.

The crowd was pretty darned loud, considering the fact that the paid attendance was only 11,000 and change in a stadium that had a capacity of 52,000.

As I'm sure you know, the acoustics of that stadium made the crowd super loud.   The echoes across the field just seemed to magnify it.

Actually, I did not know that.

I only went there one time, when my cousin Donnie took me to see an Orioles/Yankees game in April of 1979. I knew about Wild Bill Hagy and Leonard "Big Wheel" Burrier (the Colts super fan), and that it was known as "The Asylum on 33rd Street." I also knew about the row of white houses that were situated directly in back of the stadium behind center-field, which some opposing hitters claimed gave Jim Palmer an extra advantage because his overhand delivery of the white baseball often blended in with those white houses ...... but I didn't know about the acoustics of the stadium making it louder.

Thanks for the info.

Memorial Stadium got so loud for Colts games that it was referred to as "The World's Largest Outdoor Insane Asylum".

    • Pretty simple statement, right.    But with Hays coming off the IL, what does it mean?   To me it means "If you hit, you play." That means players that are hitting don't sit at this point.   Maybe later when its hot or they are tired but not now.   So Mullins CF (928 OPS), Urias 2B (816 OPS)  Franco 3B (757 OPS),  Stewart LF/DH (756 OPS), Galvis SS (725 OPS) should play every  games, as long as they keep hitting.   Hyde says he will use a rotation with Hays returning.  Who should be in the position player rotation?   My answer is those that normally hit well but are not hitting well now.  Mancini 1B/DH , Mountcastle 1B/DH, Santander RF and Hays OF should be in the rotation until they start hitting well.  That means they play 3 games out of every 4 games. (Mountcastle looked good at 1B the passed few games.  He doesn't need to play LF with Hays and Stewart available.) The leaves  Severino/Sisco sharing catcher where neither is hitting. And Ruiz who should be a bench player for now at 2B/3B.    That is the way I would try to improve the offense.   When someone hits better they play more.  When the don't hit they sit more.   Seems simple to me.   What is your take on who should be in Hyde's position player rotation?
    • The fact that he’s ahead of Cole and Bieber just shows how bad rWAR is for pitchers.  Means is really good but not on the same planet as those guys.  fWAR is much better for pitchers. 
    • Elias.    We have a chance to be 2-3 games better than what we are right now if he was actually managing the roster to put us in the best chance to win.    Hyde had to keep throwing Armstrong out there because Lakins/Sulser weren’t on the team because we’re trying to keep two rule 5s and Leblanc. That’s cost us. The three man bench severely limits us in close games, especially in Extra Innings. That’s cost us.    162 is a long season to keep having to endure tanking.    
    • Oh I know this is coming. It would not surprise me at all if Rutschman starts off slow, not because I think he will bust but because the Orioles are just cursed and can't have nice things. 
    • Might have to chalk this up to Elias. 26 man roster and we’re still playing with a 3 man bench. With the new extra inning rules do we really need all those pitchers to cover innings? We’re losing games because we need 3+ LR options at all times.    Stevie Wilkerson seems like the perfect 4th bench guy at the moment. He’s not a prospect so we don’t care about him sitting on the bench. He’s competent in the IF/OF.  He’s fast and a good base runner. He can eat an inning in a blowout by pitching. Heck, or save a game. Did that happen???
    • I said it two years ago, I'll say it again, I think John Means will start the next playoff game the Orioles play in.  
    • What’s the corresponding move to activate Hays?  Looks like just a straight swap with McKenna is likely. Sulser, Lakins, or Tate, could be an option too. With playing in an NL ballpark for two games, and having two off days, we may elect to go with a bigger bench and drop an bullpen arm.
