That Orioles "fan" in the orange shirt next to, what appeared to be his girlfriend, a MFY fan reaches up and grabs a pop up that Nate McClouth went to much trouble to make a play on.

For shame Orange shirted yankee lover!

Rep to anyone with a image of McClouth's best Willem Defoe impersonation while glaring at that guy.

I was amazed at how similar that looked to the Bartman incident. Had this been a playoff game B'more may have had their own Bartman.

He lost his peanuts and his iphone. McLouth's glare was a deathstare.

He should have lost more than that. I was livid. O'Day was having a tough inning and the tying run was on second. We needed that out and McLouth would have caught it easily without the ":fan" interference.

Yeah, that was a rough inning. O'Day was getting squeezed too. I don't think he really reached out, but I thought that was gonna bite us.

O'Day did a wonderful job getting out of the inning. Not only did Nix get on after that, he was running to prevent a DP that DOD induced. Buck showed his trust by keeping him in against the lefties and was rewarded.

    • Longehagen still thinks Westburg is so bad that he needs a defensive caddy.  I’ll have to take his in person scouting of defense with a grain of salt.
    • Why would anyone downvote the OP?    Maybe we need a “K+” stat reflecting player K/9 divided by league average K/9, in order to compare pitchers across eras.       
    • Longenhagen went to 2023 JP Crawford as one picture of a Jackson Holliday path to a 5-win season.
    • The average K rate in 2023 was 8.7. (all pitchers) That's the fourth highest average behind 2020, 2021, and 2019. The 10th highest average is from 2014 at 7.7.    
    • Interesting guy. He's not built like a typical SP, 6'1" 205. However, he misses bats. In both college and in MiLB he averages a little over 11 K/9. Now he walks a few too many dudes, Bowie was 6.0 BB/9, but the stuff appears to play. Of note, walks were not as big of an issue when he was with Tampa Organization, pre-TJS. There is no advanced data from Baseball Savant but if he's throwing 4 pitches effectively and touching 98 post surgery, that's a big plus. I would love to see his advanced metrics from this spring. Gotta believe he starts in Bowie and will get to Norfolk soon if he's successful. I wonder if he will be on a strict pitch count.
    • It doesn’t seem that inconsistent to me.  Take what Longenhagen said: “He also isn’t currently a big league-quality shortstop defender and definitely isn’t better than Gunnar Henderson is right now….he’s talented enough to project as a suitable shortstop within the next couple of years.” For me, “suitable” doesn’t necessarily mean “good.”   It means adequate.   And you can find any number of bat-first adequate shortstops in the major leagues.  There’s one who just missed being unanimously elected to the Hall of Fame.  But in Holliday’s case, there’s a better SS on his team now, so I’m not sure he’s going to get the reps and experience to improve his play at SS in the next few years, so he may end up at 2B long term.  If so, that’s hardly the end of the world, for the Orioles or for him.  
    • That stat certainly shows how the game has changed over time, what are middle of the road K rates now rank as two of the top 10 in franchise history.  Something we all knew but this stat really highlights it, not sure why in the world it necessitated a down vote.
