Prayers and good thoughts for weams (Update: Weams has passed on after watching the O's beat the Yankees)

Recommended Posts

I have been on and off on ere through the year (2006 or 07 I think). I have been a member (Rochester) and a lurker and, for many reasons, do not get on here that much anymore. I have never met Weems but it has always been obvious to me what a great man and person he is.  I agree with Tony that we never know what God plans for us but I do know that I will pray - it's what gives me hope. Not to be selfish but I truly believe that the world needs folks like Weems.

I wish we could take some of the weight off of your shoulders, as you have managed to do for all of us here many many times.  You continue to be in my thoughts and prayers as you endure this fight and no doubt will be on the minds of many here.  Of course you are well prepared though, as you my friend, are an Oriole Fan, and if we are anything, we are capable of endurance.

And of course, hope truly does spring eternal.  With enough hope and enough endurance we can make it through anything.   Here's to seeing you safely through this journey.  Cheers!

First off, I am honored by the confidence @weams has in me.  My promise to all of the many Hangout members is to try very hard to live up to the high standards he has set for this site and coverage of the Orioles.

I appreciate all of you who read our Game Recaps and welcome any suggestions and interactions on my work.


Chuck is handling things.  Very well. Thanks.

Keep the fight up. I’m a firm believer that the power of prayer and the healing power and miracles of the Holy Spirt is real. So with that said. I pray for all that healing to wash over you.

    • By the time the Orioles reach agreements with Tavera and Arias they should still have somewhere around $3.5 million left out of their $6.26 million dollar pool of money to fill out the class with another 12 to 15 signees. Baseball America projects Tavera to get 1.5 to 2 million dollars. Arias was not in their top 30 list.  Players outside the top 30 historically get less than $1 million.   So I'm hoping they still have $3.5 million to pass out in 6 figure bonuses. That could get them 10 players in the $400,000 to $300,000 range. This January they gave their top 2 signees combined $2.5 million.  Then signed  6  more between $400 and 300 thousand.  Then still sprinkled in bonuses $200,000 and below.  Some bonuses weren't announced so I'm thinking they were 5 figure bonuses The  best player, especially at the plate, this year was year de Los Santos who cost them $350,000. Their best prospect, to me, is the 1.3 million dollar power bat and power armed catcher Basallo.
    • That's what it is. Whatever exactly it is... some Nike thing. https://news.sportslogos.net/2021/04/06/red-sox-wear-yellow-nike-launches-new-mlb-city-connect-uniform-series-for-2021/baseball/
    • Lacy has 41 walks in 52 IP in A+ right now too.
    • One of the 13 balls was after an 0-2 count and a foul ball that went over the left handed batter's head.   The next pitch was a low and away breaker for a swinging strike three.   It was a nice command and control moment. Not sure if the catcher told him to hit the bull, or if he did it on his own.
    • Boston is one of the 7 teams to have a “City Connect” uniform this season.
    • 5 perfect innings, 7 K’s, 41 of 54 pitches for strikes.   Not a single ball hit in the air in fair territory; 8 ground outs to go with the 7 K’s. That’s what you call finishing your regular season with a bang.  Rom closes his AA season with a 3.83 ERA   In September, he threw 14 scoreless innings, allowing 5 hits and 1 walk, striking out 18.   
    • No one argued that the line played crappy. The criticism of his passing has been exactly what I stated.    I think he does some impressive stuff but also think he’s makes stupid mistakes and untimely blunders like this game.  The 2 fumbles hurt big time. The third that everyone wants to dismiss is an indecisive error IMO. The RB has to secure the ball if it’s handed off. If Lamar decides too late to keep then tries to  pull it back in and causes a fumble we should blame the RB? Either way, I’ve stated my preferences in the past. I don’t need to do so again and guys here mentioning Flacco won’t cause me to do it either. Joe was done when he left here and it was time for a change. I don’t think the Ravens ever win the big one with Jackson. I’ll be shocked and happy if they do. But to me the mistakes like the ones in the last game are obviously a problem and caused by the fact that he wants to run the ball and that’s his preference. A number of his sacks are also for that very reason.
