We have to hit Jeter tomorrow if we get a good lead.

I would rather hit Cano. It will also be much easier to pul off for Britton as a lefty coming in against a lefty. Britton hitting Jeter will look much more blatantly obvious and run the risk of an ejection.

If the team has any pride, someone will get hit tomorrow and I fully support it. Fat CC's reaction to Nick getting hurt is unacceptable, and you have to protect your guys regardless.

Here's what we do. Score 40 runs and start stealing bases. Then in the 9th inning bring in Gregg and start beaning some players. Then when the brawl starts we wait for them to come out with their walkers and canes and take it from them and watch them flop around on the ground.

Personally I think they should hit more than Jeter. They whine every time someone comes inside to them. It's just like taking crap from a bully. If you keep letting them do it they'll never stop. It's time to let them know the Orioles aren't putting up with their crap anymore. Pick your spots and drill them.

    • I used the only information that’s available. If I did anything else it would no doubt be treated with accusations that I wouldn’t want to deal with. I did read an article that says the Wonderlic was replaced by it in 2022. There is no saying whether he took it or scored. BTW, Bryce Young scored 98% according to reports. While I like the Bama guy I think his height and light build are against him no matter how smart he is.
    • Just chipping in here on Urias... his power outage combined with defensive lapses of late (not to mention younger competition in house) have me ready to move on after this season. Potential payoff heroics might even sweeten the trade value instead of appetite to retain him. 
    • It was huge. I wasn't old enough to read it until about the 1980 version, but I'd check it out from the library every few weeks and probably read it cover to cover multiple times. It was there that I found things like Willie Keeler's .432 average in 1897, for the National League Baltimore Orioles, of all things. I think many people don't realize that before the McMillan Encyclopedia there was no single comprehensive source for this information. In many cases no source at all. You mention the Whos Whos in Baseball publications, but they only had active players. And I'm not sure how accurate they were, or how comprehensive. If you wanted to see who won the American League in 1907... I don't know. Or who won the 1922 batting title if you didn't have a stack of old Sporting News or Spalding Guides. There were some earlier books, like one called Daguerreotypes, but they were not well known or widely available or probably very accurate. I think it's true that when Ty Cobb retired he probably didn't know how many hits he actually had. When Babe Ruth started hitting homers some writer had to go dig around old guides and total stuff up to see if he was getting near some career record. The main reason a lot of HOF selections from before the 1970s were a little wacky was that the voters mostly were relying on 20 or 50 year old memories because they didn't have a reference. "Oh yea, I remember Bobby Wallace, the greatest shortstop... or was it third baseman... in the 1890s or something." That and the fantastically screwed up voting systems. The Encyclopedia was the beginning of the end of people who'd tell these long-winded stories of great feats of baseball from decades ago that were mostly not true. End of the Cliff Clavin era.
    • I’d say Tampa.    I don’t want to see Arozarena in a playoff series. Ever. He kills us and I’m sure he’d go off on a big stage.  Their pitching is really good.     
    • There's a new test called the S2 cognition test that is supposedly a better predictor of QB success rates than Wonderlic, which has a lot of high profile misses, Lamar included.  (Dan Marino, Jim Kelly, Steve McNair among others.)  With the number of misses on the Wonderlic test  it's hard for me to take the test seriously as a predictor of NFL quarterbacking success.  I also found this study that says the same thing:   https://harvardsportsanalysis.org/2014/04/wondering-about-the-wonderlic-does-it-predict-quarterback-performance/#:~:text=From the various tests we,and Wonderlic scores of quarterbacks.   S2 picked up on Brock Purdy being a possible diamond in the rough.  It started being taken around 2015, so its likely Lamar took it, but his score hasn't been publicized.  People made a big deal about it this past draft cycle because CJ Stroud did terribly on it apparenty.
    • The way I read this, anyone on the 40 man is eligible, even if they are in the minors. Then there are exceptions for players who aren't on the 40an. So yes, I am not expert in roster rules but I believe Grayson, Kjerstad etc could be optioned and still make the postseason roster as long as they stay on the 40 man roster.
