Fires me up! Selig is a spineless figurehead. No way both wildcards don't come from the AL West.

Huh? If the season ended today the Orioles and the Yankees are the WCs for the AL. Detroit (AL Central) would be in 3rd.

Well the season doesn't end today. Not everyone has pmYed the Astros equally yet (I believe we have 1-2 series with them?)

Wait until the season ends, both wildcards will come from the west, book it. I would wager on that.

Watching the BOS-STROS game, hoping against hope they can manage a W, and I find myself feeling sorry for the Stros' announcers. Imagine trying to sound interested and positive with that mess. We need to send them Jim Hunter. :smile11:

Now you have me wishing that the Chi-Sox were that bad so I could tune into a game in September and hear Hawk trying to deal with a 120 loss season.

It is a wonderful time when other owners are ranking higher than Angelos as the worst in MLB. Angelos five years ago was ranked the worst owner in North American Sport. And that is including NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB.

I have to laugh at this post.

Haven't the St. Louis Cardinals benefitted from playing with the Astros for the last 15 years or so (along with other relatively mediocre teams in the mid-West? The Cards played among the two easiest schedules in baseball last year. Funny that someone just notices the impact of poor teams only when it impacts the Os - as if having some bad teams is a new phenomenon.

Regarding the Marlins, I have little doubt that they will be a competitive team a lot sooner than they would have had they kept last year's team intact, but, again, a mediocre Marlins team is nothing new either.

There is nothing intelligent about this post or this thread. The only commendable thing I can find is that the middle sentence isn't a fragment.

    • Winning 2 more games looks like a long shot.  This team played over their heads for so long, I think they just ran out of gas.  Maybe we can get a couple more ace like starter performances or just play a Yankees/Blue Jays B squad.  Disappointing to finish the year this way, even though I never thought the O's would be near .500 this year.
    • But bringing in busts like Reed really hurt us bad.
    • I understand the complaints about the lineup but really the reason we came back down to earth is the bullpen.   We were close to automatic in games we were ahead of the 6th and in almost every game if the starter kept us close.    The bullpen regressed, wore out, whatever you want to say.   As a whole, the bullpen was great for most of the season.   If the bullpen doesn't go flat, we probably make the playoffs or the season goes down to the final couple of games.
    • Thanks for everything that you all do on the Hangout. I discovered it in 1999 and have been a loyal reader ever since. Not only is it the best baseball fan site, It is the best sports fan site around.    I haven’t posted in many years, but I haven’t been this excited about the Orioles in a very long time. Thanks again guys. 
    • Carrying the lineup, no.  Likely being one less glaring hole in the lineup?  Very possible.  Helping the team win more by not being close to an automatic out?  Probable.  I understand the left versus right arguments and the pitcher splits.  But I think it's been way over blown and relied upon way too much by whoever is making that decision, be it Hyde, Elias or whatever PC just spits out the lineup.  We've put inferior players in the lineup way to often this year... it's amazing we have won a many as we have really. 
    • Even if Aguilar is never on the team Stowers is not carrying the lineup vs LHP. They simply have not performed.    There is zero doubt in my mind that Hyde is not solely making decisions. 
    • They basically hung around 6-8 over .500 for awhile. 9 over after A’s series. Plus 7 after Jays series, 6 after Boston, 8 after DC, 7 after Jays, 6 after Detroit, 6 after Houston. Now it’s down to 4. In between never dipped below 5, never over 8 after A’s series.    I really want 3-3 the rest of way, 2-4 at minimum.  Would like 4-2.
