What an ignorant statement. You think the data used is made up?  
 

I had a lengthy post because it’s kind of hard to avoid this topic and was trying to engage in a conversation. That’s it.  

Please point to where I said the data you used was made up. 

Actually, don't. I really don't need you to show me where I didn't say that.  Who's ignorant now?

My point was: I really doubt anyone was interested in seeing a giant post that takes up your entire screen with posts on it.  You posted  comments from accounts with a very minimal amount of followers.  NONE of them are verified.  NONE.  This doesn't mean that they're BS, but it should be taken into account.     What in the world is Hold2LLC? Why should I care what they say?  Their twitter bio says they "invest intelligently in ourselves" - it doesn't say they are doctors, immunologists, or virologists. Moreover, Covid_clarity looks to be a clearly anti mask twitter who is picking on people consistently who endorse mask-wearing, so why would I believe their posts? Just because they say they "welcome all viewpoints" doesn't mean they actively do.     I don't like wearing a mask either, but if it keeps me safe, I'll do it. I'm going to start doing it anyway in cold & flu season because I hate being ill and it's a very easy step to make that has shown positive results.

So it’s an ad hom attack. What do the number of followers have to do with the data? It’s either real or it isn’t. 

People without a blue check can’t say anything credible?

You just called me ignorant and now you're going to say I'm ad homming you???  I guess you're not interested in a discussion either! But you can take solace, really genuine people like @OsFan2001can back you up with racist, homophobic, and violent statements on the internet!

Why do you think I started the conversation to walk away from it? 

You told me to go away basically

Eddie, I'm confused.

You said that you wanted to have a discussion and you didn't like my short replies.  So I made a long one. You didn't like that one either, but your response was short and didn't say anything except something that I never said.  I think you're being intentionally dense here so there's not much left to say.  I think my point was very clear.  I didn't call you names (just returned a dig that you tossed at me, but certainly that hasn't upset you this much) and now I've got this jackwagon telling me to leave my children without a father.

As for the other comment I made regarding this cretin who is levying threats and hatred, I think it's pretty clear that was a tongue in cheek comment. If you want to have a discussion, you can DM me, no one needs to see this back and forth.

Can we just close this thread which is obviously against board policy? I apologize for contributing to it in any way as it is clear that we are incapable of discussing anything beyond baseball without it becoming political.

100% agree.  Was triggered by the Mike Flanagan thing. Would delete it if I could but I can’t.  Apologies to all.

It gave me an excuse to bust out a Fallacy Ref meme for the first time in awhile so I guess I can't complain too much 😉

    • A better order Better bring in a haul - Mullins, Hays, Means Some To little value; could gain much more value w/ good start to 2022 - Santander, Mancini, Sulser, Scott, Tate, Lyles Currently no value, but bc of age, service time, and/or potential to reach peak value, IF they were to perform WOULD have trade value - Fry, Lopez, Odor, Stewart    
    • I was shocked at first but did some research on the current market, and  1 year 7 million is spot on for Lyles to the O's
    • They have no current value, but this thread discusses potential to build value as well.
    • There was no real order
    • I do not want Green.  Just way too many strike outs, too many holes in the swing for me to be comfortable with.   
    • September/October2021 -- finally getting around to this. 11-20 record 6-14 vs. AL East 8-10 at home 3-10 on the road 5-7 in one-run games 1-4 in extra innings Batting 3.90 runs/game was 14th in the AL .237 BA was 12th .308 OBP was 10th .391 SLG was 12th .699 OPS was 12th 1.19 HR/G was 7th .225/.314/.398 with RISP (274 PA, 236 AB, 53 H, 94 TB, 86 TOB) Pitching 5.84 ERA was last in the AL 5.97 RA/G was last 1.77 HR/G was last 5.05 starter ERA was 12th 4.37 IP/start was 12th 6.63 bullpen ERA was last 7 saves was tied for 8th 17 save opportunities  10 blown saves  Defense 10 unearned runs was tied for 10th fewest in the AL 0.42 errors/game (13 errors) -0.7 fangraphs defense 1.3 UZR (+ 3.3 OF, +2.0 IF) -1 Rtot -3 Rdrs 0 OAA Cumulative through September/October 2021 Batting 4.07 runs/game was 14th in the AL .239 BA was 10th .304 OBP was 12th .402 SLG was 11th .705 OPS was 12th 1.20 HR/G was 10th .232/.311/.353 with RISP (1437 PA,  1241 AB, 288 H, 438 TB, 445 TOB)(.664 OPS with RISP was last in the AL) Pitching 5.84 ERA was last in the AL 5.90 RA/G was last 1.59 HR/G was last 5.99 starter ERA was last 4.54 IP/start was last 5.70 bullpen ERA was last  26 saves was last 54 save opportunities was 13th 28 blown saves was tied for 2nd most Defense 46 unearned runs was fewest in the AL  0.46 errors/game (74 errors) was 3rd fewest 0.1 fangraphs defense was 8th in AL -3.9 UZR was 10th  (-4.4 OF, +0.5 IF) -46 Rtot was 14th - 30 Rdrs was 12th -16 OAA Conclusion:  The offense was pretty much its usual well below average self in September/October, and while the hitting with RISP was a little better than it was on the season as a whole (.712 OPS vs. .664), somehow the team still was 14th in runs per game despite doing better than that in BA, OBP, SLG and OPS (all in the 10th-12th range).   Not epically bad, just regular bad.   The starting pitching also was only regular bad, and better than its usual epically awful, posting a 5.05 ERA in September/October compared to 5.99 on the season.   But the bullpen really carried the team to the no. 1 draft pick, posting a 6.63 ERA for the month and blowing 10 of 17 save opportunities.   Think about that -- 17 save opportunities in one month is a lot!   But the pen blew more than half of them.   The pen was epically bad this season, and even more horrible in September/October.   Finally, the defense was sort of middling in the final month, both by standard and advanced metrics.   It's interesting that on the year, the O's allowed the fewest unearned runs of any team in the league, and the 3rd fewest errors, and yet, Rdrs had them at -46 runs, Rtot said -30, and OAA said -16.    All in all, there's a ton of work to do in all areas for 2022.   The pitching in particular just has to get better.   And I think it will, because it pretty much cannot get worse, either for the starters (5.99 ERA for the year while covering only 4.54 IP per start) or the bullpen (5.70 ERA and a 48% save rate).    But how much better is the key to how significantly our team will improve in 2021.
