Remember that week, week and a half, back in 2019 where Davis looked like an adequate ML player?

Good times.

I’m actually having a hard time remembering that.

Yea, Reddit was talking about a campaign to get him in the all-star game.

It's a shame the first game won't be on the radio (Frobby posted the dates that 105.7 would air radio broadcasts in another thread).   I'm sure they wanted to but 105.7 is also the Terps basketball station and they have a game Sunday.

Only one game in the first 21 days of exhibitions is on the radio outside the M-F 1:05 timeslot, which I can't listen to at work.   That's next Saturday,  March 6.   Man, I'm going to be jonesing for some O's game action.

Game is on Pirates radio for those that have MLB app.  Looks like all games this week except Toronto will be covered by Orioles or opposition either on radio or TV.

It'll be on MLB Gameday... no pitch counts but we'll be able to follow it some.

Next Sunday's game March 7@Pittsburgh is televised. I'm over 3 hours from Pitt but for some reason we have ATT Sportsnet -Pitt on our cable package. So I'll be able to watch then.

I remember you saying that in the past. 
 

Quick glance Orioles at Pitts is also on Pirates TV March 11, 19 and 22.  
 

Of course in regular season it’s blacked out but spring having the MLB.Tv package is good being an Orioles fan. One perk of having a ticket package. 
 

I just don’t get Orioles/MASN. I mean games start tomorrow and still no word about TV schedule. Hard to fathom.

:D :D :D

 

I hadn't checked the whole way thru. Pitt announcers are terrible. Just boring as hell. Plus EVERY time we play them they bring up '79 again! :mad:

 

But it's O's baseball in ST. :D Any port in a storm!

Winter is over.   Everyone is healthy.  And all is right with the world.

O's play baseball today.

And Mancini will be in the lineup.

    • Well, the Orioles got off to a terrible start in what is hopefully Elias' final tankathon season. They owned the 28th pick in the 2022 MLB draft upon leaving Boston. However, they've now rallied up to the number four pick, just two games behind Colorado. The Elijah Green sweepstakes are under way!
    • Of course I knew him but I never watched him. I thought those cartoons were stupid, even as an 8-year old. Tom and Jerry too. But the Warner bros gang were brilliant.  i was very fond of Mighty Mouse, too. The artwork was stunning.
    • Dont hold you're breath. 
    • o   Young man, you're no Walter Johnson.   o
    • I think a fan with a certain bit of refinement should understand that prospect rankings are not definitive statements on the health of a player development system.  What the O's need to be able to do to win consistently at the ML level is find and develop players better than their peers.  Taking Rutchsman doesn't actually resolve that issue.  Whiffing on 1-2 doesn't resolve that issue.  Neither does losing 100 games a year.  That issue is resolved in improving the O's processes in finding and developing amateur talent.  So if you want to criticize Elias or the rebuild, criticize that.  The fact that the O's stink in 2021, or 2020, or 2023, was predestined several years before it happened. You hit the O's biggest organizational failure on the head: The failure to develop quality pitching.  I've said this before and I'll say it again: The reason so many highly ranked minor league arms fail here and go on to do better elsewhere in some cases is because pitching for the O's is the most difficult pitching environment in the big leagues, and I don't think it is close.  Based on who and where you pitch, this is easily the worst place to pitch in the major leagues, other than maybe Colorado. So if Elias doesn't solve that particular riddle, he is mostly likely to fail.  I don't think he's infallible.  It's very possible he does fail.  But I'm not going to get up in arms about the O's being shit 2 and a half years into what I takes twice that time to favorably construct.
    • Those high rankings were almost solely the result of picking in the top 5 AND some good trading by MacPhail- who actually had a ML asset or two when he arrived unlike Elias. It was not a testament to the Orioles ability to find and develop players though. Before we go down this road, I think I should clearly state we don't seem to disagree.  I said 3-5 years.  You presented the Mariners as an example of doing it in 3 years.  Even if I accept the premise that they did what you say, that fits into the window I provided.
