Considering that Lackey's ERA qualifies him for transatlantic flights, I will be disappointed if the O's can't put a hurting on him.

We have had very little to brag about lately, so I figured I would take a shot at them while I could. :o:)

I think the odds favor a beanball war tonight. Lackey is old school and is having a rough year. Simon doesn't have great control and I doubt the O's will put up with much tonight. Tighten up those chinstraps, it might be a rough one.

The last game thread I kept up with was early in the season for the Texas DH. I had never follwed one before, so after that I stopped for fear of cursing the team. However, tonight I will be here because I can not watch on the TV.

Let us hope for an O's win. No BullS###. Just beat them.

One of the high points for me last year was the fact that Baltimore played .500 with Boston. I happened to catch one of their final meetings on XM, and it was with the Boston feed. They were really dissapointed that Baltimore was one of the reasons why they did not make the play-offs.

    • They don't have the one and done anymore. I believe it's a 3 game series now.
    • Wondering if Norby is the future 1B and Westburg is traded.
    • Juan Gonzalez won a gold glove one year he was basically a DH.  Seeing how much a media darling Ortiz was, I'm surprised he didn't win one.
    • The entire outfield wall moved back!  I support it just to hear opposing teams' sluggers whine. 
    • Years back I remember when a pitcher (Don't remember his name) was told he'd won a GG.  He responded "Really? I don't even think I'm a good fielder."
    • One way to look at it is that we were three runs away from making the playoffs. We lost opening day 2-1 to Tampa and then we lost to them in extra innings on July 27. If we score two more runs on opening day and one more run in the first nine innings of that extra inning loss, we make the playoffs.
    • I'd be very surprised if they acquire an outfielder unless one of Mullins, Santandar or Hays are traded.  With Stowers and McKenna already in the MLB and Cowser knocking down the door, I think getting an outfielder is very low on the priority list for Elias.   I think next year Stowers will be given a shot at first base, and he will be a 1st/OF player.  I would hope the stupid platoon thing that was done to him this year stops as his splits are fairly even historically.  With Mountcastle and Hays slumping often we need someone with a decent bat who can fill in both positions, and Stowers could fill such a role and get some significant playing time as such.  Vavra is a bit more complicated.  We have a need for a good 2nd baseman, but I'm not sure Vavra is the answer there.  Urias and Mateo look to finish out the ss/3rd positions, and then of course there is Westburg waiting in the wings.  With Odor gone I think Vavra gets more playing time at 2nd and around the infield in general.  But I could also see 2nd base being a place where we bring in another vet, but one better with the bat than Odor.
