Favorite memories from this season

Chris Davis taking the hill, schooling Adrian Gonzalez

Waking up at like 2:30 AM after falling asleep during the Mariners game. Thinking that MASN was showing the replay and then realizing it was the 18th inning.

Jones and his extra inning heroics.

9/6/12. Ripken Day. Stomping the Yankees, seeing them fight back and then just going off.

Yours?

That play probably sums up the whole season. Young, upstart, faking out everyone around and making one hell of a play, one you've never seen before and one you'll probably never see again.

Heh, you know what's funny about it? Some other team did it like a week later. It wasn't quite as blatantly awesome, but it was the same basic construct. Third comes in, runner rounds, SS covers third, deke to first, throw back to third, out. Saw it on The Rundown and was like "how does that happen to two different teams that close together?"

    • What would it take to get Danny Jansen? McCann has been an offensive zero and is on pace for 220 ABs. A solid backup catcher would really help on those nights when Adley is DHing. 
    • The bottom line is that right now they feel the team is better balancing offense and defense with Urias and/or Mateo playing the infield over bringing up Mayo.  That opinion may change tomorrow or it might not until much later.  They think they will win more games with the veterans than throwing another rookie in the mix.  I think they will give Kjersted a good 3-4 week run and if he produces that will continue.  Kjersted and/or Mayo could also get traded for the right deal as well if it significantly helps the pitching staff.  
    • Higher than Tarik Skubal? The guy is a top 10 starter in baseball. 
    • The offense will be fine.  You can’t expect them to score 5 runs a game against the best pitching staffs.  The last 4 of 5 series we have faced the Braves 8th in ERA, the Phillies 1st in ERA, the Yankees 2nd in ERA, and the Guardians, 5th in ERA.  The Astros are 20th but Blanco is 3rd in ERA and Valdez is very good.  The other teams have good players as well so it comes down to getting a few timely hits and converting your chances.  We need someone to get that big hit which we haven’t gotten the last 3 games going 1-14.  
    • I got to ask Kevin Brown a question today. So I asked him which stadium has the best broadcast booth. He responded by saying that Camden Yards does, and that he was not saying that as a homer, but (and I am paraphrasing) that with size, dimension and placement as consideration, the one at Camden Yards is just the best.
    • Westburg has 8-9 errors too...
    • You could say the exact same thing about the last three games skewing the data that the offense a lot.  They had scored 4.6 runs a game against the Braves, Phillies, and Yankees going into the last game against New York.  That is with facing Fried, Suarez, Wheeler, Cortes, and Cole along with a very good to great bullpen from the Braves, Yanks, and Phillies.  The Phillies have the best ERa in the league at 3.09 and we scored 17 runs in 3 games which is almost 6 runs a game.  The Yankees Era is 3.21 and we scored 9 runs in two games then 17 the last game.  The Braves ERa is 3.59 and we scored 11 runs in 3 games.  So to say the offense has not been good for two weeks is just wrong.  They haven’t been good for the last 3 games.  They were decent vs the Braves, great against the Phillies, pretty good 1st two games vs Yanks.  Amazing the last Yankees game and 1st Astros game and then been horrible last 3.
