Just saw that he had a fractured fibula. I mean how does that happen? Did he get hit with that one comebacker? Or was that Valdez?

He did get hit on a聽聽comebacker.

Ok then. He鈥檚 fine聽to lead off.


Lol, Amazing that was the first leadoff homer in WS history.聽 Soler power!聽 Rosario will be the leadoff hitter against righties.聽 As hot as he is, maybe he'll be the second player to lead off a WS game with a homer.聽 Urquidy (a righty) is starting for Houston.聽 聽

Pretty awesome that聽Morton got 2 K's after he broke his fibula.聽 He must have been incredibly focused.聽聽

    • Cardinals were聽smart enough not to resign Pujols when he hit his 30鈥檚 knowing he would never be able to match the production from the first decade of his career. With the way the Orioles have聽operated during the Angelos era they almost certainly resign a player of that caliber. It鈥檚 a mistake you can鈥檛 make when you鈥檙e not the Yankees or Dodgers. The Cardinals usually avoid these kind of crippling moves and that keeps them competitive. With Elias hopefully we see that with the O鈥檚.聽
    • Marte, who may considered the best CF option via FA, was just signed by the Mets.
    • On the contrary, it is completely true. The team will have ebbs聽and flows, based on random chance And misfortune such as is聽happening to Kjested right now, But if you avoid long-term contracts, all of which are stupid, trade your guys at peak value and restock the farm, and there鈥檚 no reason why you can鈥檛 continually be a positive team. The Cardinals do it and they never have a single digit draft choice they always draft in the high teens, and yet they still have a good team over and over.
    • Going into 2009, Tillman was BA鈥檚 no. 22 prospect, Matusz no. 25, Arrieta no. 67. 聽 Britton wasn鈥檛 ranked yet but was no. 63 the next year. 聽Brad Bergesen was the reigning Eastern League pitcher of the year. 聽 David Hernandez had led the league. In strikeouts. 聽 So, it was a more impressive group than your post suggests. 聽聽
    • Even worse聽living with the knowledge that Cardinals owner聽Bill DeWitt Jr. could have been the Orioles owner all this聽time, but thanks to Peter Angelos outbidding him it never happened.聽
    • Nothing happens til it happens, but can we glean anything meaningful from what the insiders say? 聽 鈥滾istening聽to offers鈥 means nothing. Does anyone NOT listen to offers? However, that鈥檚 probably indicates less interest than聽a term like鈥 鈥滵angling.鈥 What does that mean? Is GM A calling up GM B and saying,鈥澛爃ey, I got this hot guy, and he can be yours! All I need is XX.鈥 Is聽GM A being coy and hitting that MAAAAAAYBE he鈥檒l listen鈥? Regardless, it probably indicates more desire to trade, but maybe not as much as鈥 鈥淓ager to deal鈥 or 鈥渟eeking the best matchup鈥 which is where GM A is calling up everyone in the Rolodex and saying,鈥 Have聽I got a deal for you!聽AND if you ACT NOW鈥o? Well, how about鈥︹tc etc鈥 All 聽those terms indicate at least partially dealing from a position of 鈥淚 don鈥檛 have聽to鈥 鈥淚鈥檓 in no hurry鈥 鈥渋f you don鈥檛, someone else will,鈥 and so on. But pity the guys who鈥 鈥滱re willing to eat most of the contract鈥︹ the fools who rush in, and then find it veeeeery expensive to rush back out.. poor San Diego would be less poor if they hadn鈥檛 flung all that cash at Mr Hosmer, but they did, and he has been smiling ever since鈥nd they..鈥 are willing to eat most of his contract鈥 Anyway, where does that leave the Orioles? We鈥檙e listening. Sure we are. Everyone listens except your cat in the backyard who doesn鈥檛 want to come in yet. We are 鈥渄angling鈥濃. That means we鈥檙e listening a bit more earnestly, but still it鈥檚 our call. Nothing will happen unless it鈥檚 very good for the Bmore boys. So let鈥檚聽see what kind of horse trader Mike is, and what can he bring home in return for the shiny bauble he is dangling鈥
    • I think we are going to have to get some favorable results from our own young pitchers to improve significantly in 2022. Last year was a bottom 20% outcome in that regard compared to the range of possible outcomes from that group. 聽 聽If things break the other way in 2022 we could see a lot more wins. 聽 But you can鈥檛 just expect that to happen given their performance to date. 聽聽
