Umpire Bill Miller didn't like Lawrie trotting towards 1st on the first bad call so he rang him up on an even worse call. Of course Lawrie needs to take an unpaid vacation, but the ump should be suspended as well for incitement and general incompetence.

Stupid of Lawrie to show up an ump on the 1st call; Price could have 2-hopped that next one in and Miller would have rung him up. Throwing the helmet and hitting the ump should earn him a substantial sabbatical.

I've always been a bit put off by Lawrie. True, the plate appearance didn't go the way it should have, but that didn't give him license to go that far. If you're going to doff your helmet in anger in the first place, toss it aside or spike it at your side, don't doink it at the ump's feet and off his person. That doesn't fly.

If Goddell was the commissioner he would be suspended for the rest of the year and probably half of next year, along with the coaches, too.

Selig will probably throw down a 5-10 game suspension though.

Goodell would also initiate a rule, in the name of safety, where the helmet would be permanently attached to the head.

    • Depends on the ask. Two years isn’t that many. I’m guessing any return would start with DL Hall, one of our prized infielders not named Gunnar, and maybe two other pieces. 
    • Yea, teams that are you know, actively trying to win, can't churn the roster like the O's could. I don't expect the Yankees to score a bunch of these guys. And even the Yankees got Nestor (3.9 rWAR this season, which would be second on the O's)
    • What I want for Judge is for him to sign with a non AL East team.  I believe he has at least 5 more good/great years left.  I would rather he has those years with say the Mets.  I can't imagine the angst that Yankee fans would have if Judge is across town hitting 50+ HR.  The Yankees are not near as good w/o Judge and there's no clear replacement in free agency. 
    • That's the worst to me too.  The O's had a big lead in the season series, and I thought, well at least the O's are better than the Sox (record wise if not talent wise).  This collapse against the Sox has been frustrating and humbling. 
    • I know, there are a lot of forgettable pitchers too. But I would bet that we have gotten more out of waiver claims than just about any team in MLB the last 4 years, and I bet it isnt' close.
    • I think Elias made the right choice.  He had to know the O's had a 10% or less chance of making the playoffs.  Do you mortgage the future for that small chance?  Maybe in 2023, when the O's are real contenders, you do send away major talent in a trade.  Even if the O's kept Lopez and Mancini and made a minor addition, I still think they are coming up short.  The O's just have too big a talent gap between them and teams like Toronto, Tampa Bay and even Seattle.  Think about how much talent Dan traded away in 2012-2016.  The O's don't need to repeat the mistakes of the past.  I think Elias is going to concentrate on collecting talent more than trading it away.  I'm sure there will be trades in the future, but it will be for difference making talent at the right time. 
    • Not a particular game, but basically the first month and a half when Adley could have been called up sooner and possibly swung a couple of those. He'll end up getting that extra year of service time anyways for his ROY finish, so that production was just lost.
