Made sure you got it in before his threat was realized ;)

Yeah. And as much as I love doing the game threads, I meant it when I said that he can do them if he likes. I get into enough power struggles in my life, I don't need another one. :)

Dang! FYI - those of us who use this place as an entertainment vehicle (note all the goings on today) are disheartened when you take that approach. ;)

So anyway, SG's boy, Mark R, is back on the horse that brung him and atomic will start another thread in five four three...

Will we see OH fave rave and Balmer native, Gavin Floyd, this trip?

And If we do, will the orioles activate Agent Orange for a pinch hit appearance? Also, I've heard he made the transition from 2nd to 3rd base very easily. Would that improve our team defense as well?

I think he's scheduled to pitch in the finale on Thursday.

Also a reminder, the first three games of the series will be on MASN 2 before moving back to MASN on Thursday. For Verizon FiOS customers, MASN 2 will be on Channel 1 (SD) and Channel 501 (HD).

Depending on how the wind interacts with the field, it could be very interesting. It has been quite windy in Chicago today (what a thought), and it looks like they're in the middle of a wind shift. Sustained winds have been pretty much in the 20s and 30s with gusts in the 40s. For the last several hours the wind has been out of the west, which is blowing out to left field and perhaps left-center as well. If the wind shift completes itself before or during the game, there will be quite a wind from the northwest blowing out to all fields. Arrieta will certainly want to keep the ball down, even with the cool temperatures (low 50s).

Good day for windmills (molino is actually a windmill - how 'bout that hombre?)?

    • Not to derail the topic of this thread, but your comment made me think of the article I read in The Athletic today about Cionel Perez and his contract situation. Ol' Dan either liked to place it fast and loose with the contract rules or just didn't really know all the details. This is about Perez back when he was signing as an amateur and had his original deal with the Astros annulled due to a physical concern: https://theathletic.com/3642537/2022/09/30/orioles-cionel-perez-rocky-road-to-success/?source=dailyemail&campaign=601983
    • I am liking tonight's lineup. Ger the young guys in the game.
    • I have a different opinion of DL Hall, if a club values him enough (paired with another young player) to give us an upside pitcher like Seattle’s Kirby or Cincinnati’s Lolodo - I won’t hesitate. He’s 24 years old, has never gone 100 innings, history of injury and control issues. We need to stop falling in love with our players and look at them objectively.
    • Get guys that can make better pitches.

    • On the surface, no it wouldn't be, and framing the argument this way makes what I said seem ridiculous.  But please hear me out... I'm not advocating walking these guys on 100% of their plate appearances.  When the situation is favorable to us (for example: bases empty, two outs, he can't tie the game by himself in this at bat, that type of low-leverage scenario), we're still going to pitch to him, because the damage potential is as minimal as it can be.  I think what I'm really trying to stress is the concept of BURST damage potential these guys always crush us with when we pitch to them at the wrong times.  So many times, the hottest hitter in MLB waltzes up to the plate with a couple of guys on... and we don't point to first and make his slumping or neutral teammate on-deck beat us; we pitch to stupidly-locked-in guy, and two minutes later, we're down three runs in the blink of an eye. It reminds me a lot of playing online games competitively against other players.  There are people playing the character who does lots of damage, but spread out over time or among many of his opponents.  And that's the guy you tend to pick fights with... he could hurt you, but you are likely to survive if you outplay him.  But then you see the guy playing the character who does a lot of damage at once in a focused burst if he happens to hit who he's firing at.  And you stay away from that guy when you see him, because if he hits you with a shot, you're just DEAD. This scenario with pitching to the red-hot hitter feels like the baseball equivalent of that.
