They basically hung around 6-8 over .500 for awhile. 9 over after A’s series. Plus 7 after Jays series, 6 after Boston, 8 after DC, 7 after Jays, 6 after Detroit, 6 after Houston. Now it’s down to 4. In between never dipped below 5, never over 8 after A’s series.
I really want 3-3 the rest of way, 2-4 at minimum. Would like 4-2.
This has been such a peculiar season the inevitable day of mathematical elimination for me is somewhat of a moment to reflect on all the 2022 Orioles accomplished. Whether Yankees and Jays Bats demolish tired Orioles Arms or not the last 6 games doesn't bear much on that.
Last offseason the World Series ended November 2nd, and the Dodgers signed Andrew Heaney November 10th.
1425 innings in 2023 need to be planned for, and neither Means nor Rodriguez nor Hall are throwing as many as the Club probably hoped a year ago.
I almost got banned from MASN comments after I think the 2nd game. I was so ticked at Gary Thorne's excited voice (most here disagree with me in general about this, which I get) when Goldschmidt hit the walk-off homer. Such memories!
I sincerely hope we eke one out against the Yankees and maybe at least one against a Jays team that has clinched the four spot (if it plays out that way) for the winning record. Pathetic I'm looking for wins against teams because they take their foot off the gas!
Almost to the day of Tyler Glasnow's return, Shane Baz had TJ this week, a significant IMO setback for the 2023-24 Rays as entering this year he was one of the few pitching up and comers with scouting reports and dominant performances like Grayson Rodriguez.
There but for the grace of the baseball gods they all go.
