What the hell is wrong with these guys ???

Doubront walks the lead-off batter on 4 pitches, and Tolleson comes along and swings at the first pi .....

Way to be aggressive, Tolleson !!! Great job !!!

If that's a reference to the AJ thread, I am sure you agree those were very different scenarios. Go O's.

Don't flatter yourself. I was thrilled with the home run, and was poking fun at myself because I often plead with these guys to take pitches and make the opposing pitcher work more.

Nice try, though.

Ill say this, and I dont know if anyne is listening carefully, but Brian Roberts sounds VERY confident that he will be back and active as an Oriole. None of that hesitant rhetoric

weve heard before(understandably), now it sounds like Brian has a vision that he will the Orioles second baseman batting leadoff. Almost like it's the power of positive thinking.

Good for you Brian. We are all pulling for you!

I can't say I'm surprised Roy, Brian's well rested and he's going to be a huge for us. And there is plently of room for both Brian and Andino. I'm glad we have both of these quality guys.

I agree, Roy. It definitely sounded like he is over any sort of mental road blocks that may have been holding him back. Hopefully he isn't over them to the tune of sliding head first into first or hitting his head with a bat, but at least over it in the sense of not being too timid out there either.

    • The pitcher …the guys here are overvaluing prospects. Id honestly trade quite a lot if it got us a ring.
    • Yeah, also interested to hear some thoughts on the draft from people!
    • Bradish was shut down and then did a full rehab before he started pitching again. Anyway go ahead and believe what you are going to believe, I'm not going to try and convince you, but there are some facts you are leaving out.
    • And how many of those teams rotations would you trade for the one that we have currently? In just about any/every projected playoff matchup save for the Guardians and maybe the Twins, the other team has the matchup advantage in the series. IMO those are long odds when trying to be successful in multiple rounds of the playoffs in October. Maybe you are comfortable with that? I am not.
    • I doubt Elias would be much moved to act a week before the deadline when asks by Sellers still skew high but I guess it is worth noting the Orioles play their Marlins series July 23-25. Who Tanner Scott and AJ Puk and Burch Smith and Vinny Nittoli play for in any given 3-game series probably doesn't make a game of difference, and the division probably won't come down to 1 game.  
    • Remember Bradish pitched for 3 months with a torn UCL.  And pitched well.  Until he couldn't.  Just because a tear happens doesn't mean it will curtail you right away.   I saw FB's face and body language during that game.  Something was off.    I can speak of this from personal experience.  I have a torn UCL and a bone chip the size of a quarter in my right elbow, and have had it for years.  Back from when I first got it looked at 20 years ago.   I just lived with the pain.  Sometimes up to 8 tylenol a day.   It always hurts and it wasn't until I was bowling one specific shot a few years ago and it completely blew out that I had to go to a orthopedist for it.   I just rested it for 3 months and have done nothing overhand as far as sports and working out since.  Anytime I throw overhand?  It kills. No way I could throw a baseball 80 times a game.  My arm would probably fall off.    The elbow really controls your overhand throws.  Underhand and side arm is not nearly as bad. 
    • How many teams won the trade deadline with a big time acquisitions and then won the championship.   2023 Rangers traded for rental Montgomery a solid mid rotation guy and rental Chapman nice bullpen piece. 2022 Astros traded for Trey Mancini 2021 Braves traded for Solor, Rosario, and Duvall.   2020 Covid year with weird deadline 2019 Nats traded for Daniel Hudson and Roenilis Ellis  2018 Red Sox traded for Andrew Cashner  2017 Astros traded for Justin Verlander which was a great pickup and changed there team when he bounced back but the trade itself was for very little in terms of prospects and more salary dump for rebuilding Tigers.    2016 Cubs trade for Chapman and Mike Montgomery.   2015 Royals traded for Johnny Cueto a veteran rental starter coming off all star season but pitched to a 4.86 ERA for Royals .  Also traded for Ben Zobrist.   2014 Giants traded for Jake Peavy as a rental.
