Ryan Flaherty may not have the bat to play as a starter.

Why are you leaving him in to bat with the game on the line? He isn't known to take walks or hit anything but a fastball....

That's all I got.

Let's get 'em tomorrow!

Who are you hitting there Delmon? Koji makes everyone look bad.

Without Nelson Cruz the team would have 0 XBH, 0 runs, and 2 chances with RISP thanks to an error and a wild pitch. They look absolutely terrible. They look flat and have no life. Tonight's game looked like it should have been played in 6 months, with the O's being clearly out of the playoffs. They looked dead.

Webb looked bad.

I hate Pedroia.

If we can't put up at least a 4 spot it will be an embarassing start for the offense.

Jimenez looked good.

Score some damn runs.

Ehh, Webb deserved better. Horrid throw by Lough. Poor throw by Flaherty.

Jones looked terrible. The offense had a poor strategy. First two innings I think Lackey threw < 20 pitches. Inexcusable.

Lackey had great command tonight, this wasn't one of those nights where we were wailing at 2-0 breaking balls in the dirt.

Yesterday, we were undefeated, and in sole possession of first place.

Now, we're nothing more than a mediocre team.

On pace to go 81-81.

Incapable of going on any kind of winning streaks.

Below average defense.

A non-existent offense.

I'm going to watch the final 160 games of the season because I'm not a quitter, but I'm not getting my hopes up, because anyone who is not deaf, dumb, and blind can see the writing on the wall from a mile away.

Every team in the AL East has a loss. And Jimenez has never been good against the Sox.

That said, I am worried about our offense this year, and I was before the season started -- it's been an assumption here that it'll be above average and that isn't a good assumption to make. And if it isn't as good as last year this team doesn't have a chance.

Jimmenz looked good? I am beginning to think we should have kept Feldman and definitely Hammel over this guy. He is a thrower not a pitcher.

I do agree with everything else in your post though, you are spot on. Without Cruz this team wouldn't have scored but one run in two games. That is pretty sorry, I don't care how good Boston's pitching is.

If the move to let McClouth go was his price was too high, I say you get what you pay for, and Lough is no McClouth. He is a bargain bin version and a cheap imitation. This team, other than Cruz is weaker than last year.

Are you kidding me? Feldman over "this guy"? Hammel? Really? Jimenez pitched a pretty good game tonight. Unfortunately, he made a big mistake with a man on base and it cost him a home run and two runs. Don't get too caught up in the fact that his ERA is a 6 right now. It won't be a 6 in a month if he keeps pitching like he did tonight.

I thought he sucked. Giving up multiple two run homers in six innings of pitching is not worthy of the big money he is getting. Heck Gausman or Steve Johnson could probably do that.

    • I have no problem with the Tigers saying they want the moon and the stars.  Its a negotiating position.  The  Tigers GM and Ownership have to know that no trade has ever happen for a pitcher that is as aggressive that they are asking for.  They don't have to trade Skubal so the O's have to motive the Tigers with what that offer could be. The O's offense is #1 in baseball in Homers, Slugging and Runs per game.    They are first in the AL in OPS.  The O's don't what to damage that.  They are 11th in Average and 15th OBP.  They want to improve that. The need to keep: 1) Holliday because he will bring the high average and OBP the O's need In the future. 2) Basallo.  It's hard to find catchers that can hit and control the running game.  Him first teaming with Adley and a some point replacing Adley is a game changer. 3) Kjerstad is needed to replace Santander unless, unless, unless the O's are willing to extend him for 4/68m.   Which way will Elias and Rubinstein go with that? ------ Mayo with his incredible talent is someone that can head up a package.   Mayo is BA #25 prospect in 2024.  O's #3 prospect. (O's prospect by MLB.com) Bradfield BA #82 prospect in 2024; #4 O's prospect  and Norby BA #93 prospect,  #5 Os prospect with a 911 OPS at AAA  currently are two players the Tigers could pick between. McDermott #7 O's prospect; Povich O's #8 prospect:  and Johnson O's #9 prospect are three future starter that  Tigers could pick between. Elias could add one or two more prospects to this list.    
    • Dodgers and O's have discussed trade talks for Skubal per MLBTR. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2024/07/orioles-dodgers-have-discussed-tarik-skubal-with-tigers.html
    • Are we playing the Blue Jays soon
    • He was scratched due to neck problems 
    • I am guessing Urias could have come in and played, which means he is still on the team.  If not you would have to do Rutchman C (Mullins out of the game, pitcher at DH)... Then who knows, maybe Santander at 2B? Or put Cionel Perez there (he seems like an athletic guy)?  I have to think Urias was available in a pinch. 
    • Huh??? We didn’t sign Corbin Burnes in the offseason. We traded Joey Ortiz, DL Hall and a draft pick for him. Tyler Wells is out until late next year after having Tommy John surgery. For the next 15 years??? Huh? You get 6 full years of team control with any player. My
