I agree with and expected this reaction. If I was there I would have booed as well. It's not because of poor performance, its because of poor personality. Remember Aubrey Huff on opening day?

Aubrey Huff said negative things about Baltimore, what has Kevin Gregg said or done?

Keep in mind 30k people just spilled over from Pickles lol

Classless is relative. I guess nobody on here went to a game at the old Yankee stadium then. I was lucky to leave with my limbs intact.

Gregg got booed because he isn't very good and most people know he shouldn't be on the team. He also makes millions of dollars and we don't. It all balances out I guess:)

He has said a lot of things in his time here. From snide comments directed at Koji to saying folks need to develop a taste for his pitching style, to saying he didn't like pitching in non save situations.

(I am not going to hunt up quotes)

Kevin Gregg has been the most annoying oriole of all time. He can't pitch and he won't give in. He wears rec specs. He's worse than danys daez

WOOOOOOOOOOOAHHHHHHH! Hold it right there. That is crazy talk! I will have to defend Gregg there. He is DEFINITELY better than Baez. Have you been drinking Why_Knott? Be honest...

I wasn't the first to say this, but I agreed with the poster that did ...... Kevin Gregg is the only Orioles player that I actually hated while he was still playing for the Orioles in more than 40 years of rooting for them. Between his "pitching" and his completely divorced from reality comments, I really dislike the guy. I don't think that I would have booed him if I were there today, but I can't stand the fact that he is in an O's uniform.

Yep. Give me 5 million and I'll stand naked on second base while the entire stadium pelts me with rotten eggs and gorilla poop.

P.S. I never boo our players, regardless of how bad they play ... even Kevin Gregg. The only time that I would boo an Oriole is if he wasn't trying his best, and was throwing games. I'm not saying that others should feel the same way and act accordingly, I'm just saying that I wouldn't boo an Oriole that was trying his best to win. :)

I agree with ChaosLex - booing Kevin Gregg was classless. And there are some pretty venomous and classless statements about Gregg here. We should reserve our "hate" for something that justifies it. IMO, being a bad pitcher doesn't meet that standard.

    • They were off today, and yesterday they dropped Bobby Witt (234/268/417) down to 5th in the batting order for the first time all year, but on the good side for them Nick Pratto is doing a lot better in his 2nd year, and has been hot enough to take the leadoff role.     The .294 team OBP remains MLB-worst, not that that stopped them from getting a bunch of runs off Orioles pitching the first time. ESPN has no one listed for Sunday, and earlier this week they used Carlos Hernandez as an opener followed by another middle reliever.     We have a maybe Austin Voth, maybe not scenario for Saturday, so the pitching matchups are as cloudy as the air this week except Wells v. Lynch tomorrow. Lynch and Singer to open the series have some talent - it will be just Lynch's 3rd game of the year (13 K in first 10 innings) after a March shoulder strain put him out two months.     Brady Singer was a 2022 star and Team USA top dog who got off to a terrible start, but has been better lately.       They are coming in cold, having dropped a series at home to "road Colorado Rockies" and been swept in Miami. Ryan Mountcastle's 0-for-4 today took him to 227/264/421 to holy cow hit the exacta on matching Bobby Witt's OPS entering the series. Rosenthal reported earlier this week KCR have let it be known they wouldn't mind sending $$$ away with Aroldis, and high paid players on their Club are Greinke and Lyles at $8.5mm, assuming franchise icon Sal Perez is staying put.     Otherwise only the closer, Scott Barlow, and an injured SP are at even $5mm+.         
    • Due my life schedule I (regretfully) do not get as much time as I wish for the Orioles . But before I went to take care of some things this afternoon I checked in on the O's score in the 6th inning and saw they where losing 3-0 . I checked on the Final Score around 9PM and was actually SURPRISED to see that they won the Game ! Now my family and friends have ....for decades ...Nicknamed me " Mr. Pessimist"( and rightfully so). That being said I AM Starting to believe that this team IS CAPABLE of winning 90+ games this season ..... So LETS GO O's !!!!!!!!!!
    • Was just pinch hit for late in the game. Really hope not for injury. And even the "easing him back in" theory doesnt really stand up. Been back for almost a week, would think he would have clearance to play a whole game especially since it was the 8th inning.. saving him for one inning????
    • I’m super encouraged by them avoiding the split today for whatever the reason. If it was clear that he didn’t have command of it in the pen as Cakes speculated, then so be it. I’d much rather take his predictable 101 than a hang-to-bang split, no matter how good it can be sometimes. Really excited by his ninth today. 
    • Thanks. It definitely "feels" low
    • We have 18, which is 20th out of the 30 teams. https://www.espn.com/mlb/stats/team/_/view/pitching/table/pitching/sort/qualityStarts/dir/desc
