    • I was wondering if anyone was at the game on Saturday and if anyone got the Ryan Mountcastle bobblehead or anyone you know did?  I have noticed something and just want to see if it is a strange trend happening this year or an anomaly.  Thanks for anyone who replies. 
    • Spectrum dropped MASN in parts of NC. d15yx0mnc9teae.cloudfront.net https://d15yx0mnc9teae.cloudfront.net › ...PDF IMPORTANT PROGRAMMING CHANGE: - cloudfront.net https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://d15yx0mnc9teae.cloudfront.net/sites/default/files/2023-03/Drop%20MASN%20MASN2_March%202023_Carolinas_EasternNC_NC.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwjxxtfM7Zn_AhV1D1kFHU0tCeIQFnoECBYQAQ&usg=AOvVaw3C7_z_agy-PeyVrvJOYPt-
    • What would be ideal is for the #1-#2 punch at the top of the rotation to be a combo of RHP and LHP.  It seems that the teams who are most successful have those guys to lead their rotation. And I agree with your statement about John Means. If Grayson Rodriguez were to provide us with any indicator, then John Means will not be the same guy that he was before his injury.  (Neither is Grayson compared to himself prior to injury.)
    • The most intriguing mystery about this series is who will pitch on Wednesday? Could be Irvin, Could be Voth. Could be DL Hall? Maybe Drew Rom makes his Major League debut? Hmm...
    • I blame the Montreal Expos for that. They poached our territory. And all the front office executives from 2001-2011 are also partially to blame for failing to compete with Washington for fans. (And as a side note, I really hope we are valuing our fans from North Carolina who have supported the Orioles for generations.)
    • Interesting little piece of trivia. At this same point (of service time on the calendar) through both their careers, Cal (Ripken Jr) had played in fewer games and had fewer plate appearances. Gunnar Henderson has a better wOBA and a better wRC+ through the same amount of plate appearances up to this point of Gunnar's career. (I'll make a topic about it tomorrow).
    • The story of the Guardians year has been the inability to put runs on the board, but they still lead MLB in fewest Strikeouts, and Fangraphs still pegs BAL the very worst team at defense YTD. They won the rubber game today of their Cardinals series, so are coming in on a little bit of a good note.     The Twins haven't played very well, leaving almost everyone a good week away from the division lead. K-BB standing among Active Roster AL SP (18) Wells v. (30) Allen (54) Gibson v. (61) Quantrill Voth/Irvin v. (49) Bieber 2 of 3 day games in a weekday series with the holiday, and a getaway day out to San Francisco and Alex Cobb for us.     Cleanup hitter Josh Naylor sat out today after fouling a ball off his foot, but X-rays okay and chances are he'll be back for this series.     With the 2.5 day break from WED afternoon to FRI night late, Hyde should have a lot of options for the finale if Wells/Gibson hold serve.
