The energy at Camden Yards is amazing

There were 3 Yankee fans 4 rows back who were getting rowdy screaming, "just one more hit! Let's tie this up!" "Let's go Yankees"...and when Jeter came up they were screaming, "the Captain!" "Jeter!" in their annoying, stereotypical New Yawk accents.

...when Adam Hit that home run...I lost it. The park was cheering, "Nah, nah, nah, nah! Hey! You suck!"

...so I turned around, pointed at the 3 of them with my O's hat, and just stared at them and went along with it. 'You suck!'

Normally I'm very cordial to opposing fans. Not these donkeys. And you know what? The fans loved it, and I'll never regret it.

GO O'S!

Good to hear, we've had too many bad years to not rub it in those bastards face!

Y'all did me proud. I grew up in glen Burnie. I have been forced to watch these birds from afar since 2006. I proudly wear my bird shirt's proudly out here in Vegas but can't go to a game. Please know that when you guys at Camden were going nuts I hurt my hand on thecceiling fan jumping up and down on jones home run in the 8th.

I know we aren't the yanks or sox but you guys in the mid-Atlantic remember your friends across the country

Haven't read anything on here yet, but gotta chime in with my thoughts.

We left work and got into the city around 3ish. No traffic what-so-ever. Got a spot in the B/C lot very quickly. Took a moment to stand on Ravens walk between the beautiful stadiums of my two favorite teams, and think..."Man, this is great."

We got to the Eutaw Street entrance as some of the first ones there, and watched the big screen with highlights of Cal's streak games. Good stuff.

Saw my pal Weams hanging with the crowd. Got inside and I have to say, the ceremony arrangement isn't the greatest. After standing for 2 hours to get in, and then another half hour waiting for the ceremony, my pulled hammy and bad back had about had it. Plus I had ZERO view of anything, as we were about 4 people deep and directly behind the tv cameras. But that said, once the ceremony began, none of that mattered. Just a great event, and Billy's speech was awesome! He defended Cal and the streak to all the National Media without calling them out by name, and it was awesome! I bet somewhere, Ken Rosenthal was thinking..."what I do to piss off Billy?"

The on field tribute was also very good, and seeing Brooks out there with the legends brought tears to my eyes! Love these guys! The moment for Art Modell was also very well done. Had Art not moved the Ravens here, we may never have had football returned to this city. I will forever be grateful to Mr. Modell!

And as for the game. What can you say? Just absolutely amazing. Aside from the 8th inning collapse, the entire game was perfect. That bottom of the 8th.....just WOW!

And the crowd? My God Baltimore....why can't we do this every night? Cheering in the FIRST inning because we had two strikes on the batter? Well done. The constant noise throughout the game was just amazing! The bottom of the 8th...unreal! And most stayed through the last out in the 9th.

I can honestly say...IF I have been to a better all around game in my life, I don't remember it off hand right now.

Best Orioles game experience I ever had, and maybe the best sports experience I have ever had. The energy was amazing. I was there in 96 for the home playoff games and nothing came close to last night.

The best thing about it was the Yankee fans were few and far between. That was just the icing on the cake. That was OUR night in every sense of the word.

There's not much left to be said about the phenomenal atmosphere yesterday, but that's a game I will never forget. Great job, Oriole fans!

This team deserves a raucous, passionate crowd like last night, every night.

This deserves to be said again....

Hmm....the paper said they were making some SRO available today.

Anyway, represent!!!

I spoke with a fellow fan on Eutaw St. he said while in line, a group of ten Yankees fans had driven down from NY and were turned away from the box office.

    • Its worth mentioning those 2023 Braves also have the seasonal wRC+ record since integration, beating the peak Astros, Big Red Machine, Harvey's Wallbangers, whatever Jeter/Manny Yankees/Red Sox unit is your favorite, etc. The 2024 Orioles and Braves are on top of them all right now if you split seasons, but that's just like Luis Arraez hitting .450 25 games into the season.    I believe Sigbot expects Holliday, Mayo and Basallo to all be more than Westburg, so either Elias is going to get his biggest bust sometime in the next few years or there's a chance the run production will be pretty special. https://www.fangraphs.com/leaders/major-league?pos=all&stats=bat&lg=all&qual=y&type=8&month=0&ind=1&team=0%2Cts&startdate=&enddate=&season1=1947&season=2024&sortcol=18&sortdir=default&pagenum=1
    • This is probably correct, but I could see things getting ugly for them if they are complacent. They need to win at a 60% rate from here out to reach 90 wins this season. That could be tough.
    • I agree completely. It is a risk. But IMO the potential reward is worth the risk. You can’t make the shots that you are unwilling to take.
    • I mostly agree about players generally being able to deal better than us with the ups and downs, but I recall Hyde saying how hard those losing seasons were and he wasn’t sure how much more he could take. That aside, I am as addicted as Roy and a lot of us hear who love the game and the Birds in particular.
    • Not a ton of relievers in the Hall of Fame.   KRod at 437 saves has gotten 10.8% and 7.8% of the votes in his first two tries; Lee Smith at 478 saves got into the HOF only through selection by the Today’s Game Era Committee.   I’d say the odds are against Kimbrel being elected by the writers unless he ends up somewhere north of 500 saves, and even then he’d be no sure thing.    Pretty good shot that Kimbrel passes KRod this year and finishes the season 4th or 5th on the all time saves list, depending what Kenley Jensen (one ahead of him) does the rest of the year.      
    • No doubt. As I was about to settle into bed last night to wait for the Os game to start (west coast start time, after all) my wife came in and casually said "Os won, that's good" as she was putzing around the room. Not knowing it was a day game and it had been played hours ago my first reaction was "damnit, what?!" instead of "oh cool".   Addict.  
    • This is spot on. You make the offer if there is need and he projects as worth that amount within the context of what else you play to do financially. Does he fit into your total budget plan if he accepts? If he's still here in September, we will have a better feel for the situation.
