Is that a ridiculously laughable lineup ??? Sure it is.

Does that necessarily mean that the Red Sox will lose the game ???

I think that we've learned time and again about that assumption.

If Buchholz has a good night, the Red Sox have a chance to win. Simple as that.

Buck could have played the C-squad vs. Boston last year to end the season but has enough integrity and respect for the game that in a situation where it determines the outcome of the playoffs he put his best foot forward. Joe Maddon thanked Buck and the Orioles for their professionalism in his press conference after game 162. We won't hear Buck saying anything like that at the end of this series, that's for sure.

If they want to look at rookies, well that's what Spring Training is for.

He really doesn't have an A team to play. They are either hurt or playing in LA.

Wasn't Bobby Valentine the Orioles choice before Showalter? And I recall Eric Wedge was their second choice? Oh how karma can be a blessing and a bastard. Just ask the former.

Valentine interviewed, but decided no. What a disaster he would have been in Baltimore. Talk was that Eric Wedge was MacPhail's choice, but was overruled by PA. I don't remember now if was only rumor, but the two final choices were Showalter and Wedge.

No matter what the Sux/Skanks do, I think if we can just win tonight and knock the Rays out officially, they'll roll over and die allowing for us to sweep. Tonight is the must have game.

I don't think Maddon would even think about rolling over for a second.

Im sure I am in the small minority, but I can't "root" for boston tonite. I almost would rather see us tie the Yankees and beat them ourselves in a playoff than say the red sox "helped" us.

Valentine is the sole reason I have this mentality.

Then again, I sure as hell wont complain if they win :)

After the on field ceremony on Saturday, the cars that the statue players were riding in all pulled in front of the Red Sox dugout while they were waiting Brooks to throw out the first pitch. I noticed that Valentine made a point to go over and shake Earl's hand and talk to him for a few minutes, which almost makes me think he's an OK guy. At the same time, Cal was talking to Pedroia and Ellsbury. Not sure what I thought about that.

    • The Oriole braintrust and coaches have done such a wonderful job, I hope they have some secret to keeping the team ready for the postseason battles despite the bye week off. Dodgers and Braves must have also figured out a plan.
    • If any combination of Irvin, Flaherty, Fuji, Baumann with the locks of Gibson, Webb, Wells, Hall, Coulombe, Cano, Perez are all in the bullpen im not sure we need 13 pitchers.    Is 3 long men really needed(Gibson/Irvin/Flaherty) with days off? Hall/Wells can go more than 1. No doubt Kremer would be the one who could turn it up out of the BP opposed to Gibson BUT if Kremer can give you a start of 5 good innings as a 4th starter thats hard to pass on. -- Hyde wants to play matchups like crazy of late so i do think they'll take 13. O's love close games, old extra inning rules could be a factor in need for more length. 
    • Mullins too.  Seems like only Adley has been fairly hot lately.  Hopefully Mountcastle's double tonight will get things going for everyone else.  Fingers crossed the several days off they'll get next week will help reenergize things.
    • I got through the gate at 5, was in line 4:45ish? And got a hoodie. It was pretty packed. Think some people just went for the hoodie though and then left early.    it was a different vibe at the ballpark, totally full, but people were just chilling and having fun, not really paying attention to the game, since the game itself didn’t mean much 
    • Happy that the Mariners are done. 
    • Bradish game 1 starter, Rodrigues game 2, Gibson game 3, Means game 4, all on short leashes with Kremer, Wells, Baumann, Webb, Hall, Coulombe, Cano and Perez in the pen....Henderson, Rutschman, Santander, Mountcastle, O'Hearn, Hays, Mullins, Westburg, Urias, Frazier, Hicks, McKenna, Mateo, McCann
    • I can see why people would say a WS win would solidify him as an elite GM but as pointed out the playoffs are a crap shoot. Elias isn’t at fault if the pitching craps the bed or if the bats go cold.    He already is elite. He’s stocked this franchise with more good young talent than we could have hoped. As long as the Orioles keep making the playoffs and as long as he keeps good talent coming through the system that’s what he’ll be judged on. In addition to being at the vanguard of how to pick up guys like O’Hearn, etc., that’s important too.
