Bud Norris Today, 2013


Recommended Posts

Good question, but the Astros hitting/pitching coach can tell the hitters "look for this pitch" the pitcher has to study around a dozen guys.

Also kinda hoping for a reverse jinx on this. (Fingers crossed)

And the pitcher can know, which one cant hit the curve, slider or fastball.

I don't like the idea of pitching a guy against his former team. Didn't work out well for Feldman... Kinda feels like the hitter has an advantage, they know the guy's stuff.

What has Feldman got to do with this. He came from the Cubs. The team hasn't

    • Publix sells a brand in the frozen section.
    • Wet Leg has won three Grammys! Pixies considered mainstream now? I'm an Iron Maiden fan from way back. Singer/Songwriter folk artists like Bob Dylan, Suzanne Vega and Tracy Chapman. It's just finding stuff on the periphery is more rewarding.
    • Poke via Uber is a bold move. Cheers, sir.
    • What mainstream music do you like? Or is a never ending attempt at being a hipster? Like, you can admit you like some Led Zeppelin or Motley Crue’s first two. 
    • Farewell to Ryan McKenna, claimed on waivers by the Giants after being DFA'd the other day. We all have followed his career since his great 2018 season at Frederick. Ryan Mountcastle,  Cedric Mullins, and Nick Vespi are now the three remaining members of the Orioles 2015 draft class still in the organization.
    • I can see Adley aging on the Posey curve. He probably has until age 35 before he will hang up the spikes/be a negative valued baseball player. IMO Adley's defense is average, he has a below average throwing arm. But his bat is excellent. And there is no arguing that his presence has made a tremendous impact since the very first day that he stepped onto a Major League field for the O's. Gunnar may not extend because of Boras and the same may turn out to be the case for Holliday. But that should not preclude us from locking up the other guys who prove to be special. Right now Adley is that IMO and Westburg appears to be working his way toward that. But even if we do not extend our own guys, we should bring in others who will sign and impact winning in a positive manner.  Again IMO, not spending and cutting cost is not the way to go for franchise viability/growth. Customers/fans are more informed than ever and have more entertainment options than ever. Your message to them cannot be come out to see the Orioles just because we are the Orioles or "Hey we will probably win more than we lose (like the Rays) but won't make any real efforts to seize opportunities (by spending) when they are there." San Diego doesn't have a problem with fan engagement/attendance even though they don't/haven't won big because they have captured the attention of that market and become relevant by signing star players. And showing their fanbase that they are invested. I am not saying that I want to be like the Padres, but I certainly want the O's to be/remain relevant in this market (like they are now). Every time I take my kids to games, they are excited to go (in particular my youngest). That is how you capture the next generation of O's fans - by being relevant. 3 years ago I couldn't get my kids to go to an Orioles game no matter what! Conversely, I have never had that issue with the Ravens. They've always wanted to attend their games (even practices/training camp).
    • I see Toronto has lost the first two to Tampa for a 3-game losing streak after John Schneider's emotional proclamation of a "big win for May 14th" Monday night. They were up 4-0 with Gausman heading into the 6th today, but....nope.
