Face it Folks - The Detroit Tigers Are Simply a Much Superior Team to the Orioles

If our offense is in full force then we can match up with them. There's not a single one of their key players that is having anything close to a bad season. The only key orioles not having a bad season are Cruz and Markakis.

Nonsense. The last 2 games went down to the wire and/or could have been decided with one play in each game. That isn't a drubbing.

When you have a 1-0 game going into the 9th inning where the starter pitched his best game of the season, only to have the closer give up 4 runs to blow the game, and then the Orioles not even come back in the 9th and score any more runs, to me that's a drubbing.

Now today's game, I stand corrected as I stopped watching it after Gausman was being hit like a rented mule and didn't realize the offense came to life and finally scored some runs. So I stand corrected on that one.

That may be the dumbest statement I ever heard about what a drubbing is. So if Hunter gets the pitch into Hunter an inch and we win would that mean we gave them a drubbing with a 1-0 win. We were 1 strike away from winning game two not a 7-0 loss.

More nonsense. Shoulda stopped at the OP.

Or as I see it they outscored us by four times as many runs. To me that is a drubbing.

True, but that series was embarassingly bad. I cannot recall the Orioles looking so dominated in a series at home since they started playing well in 2012.

In my opinion losing three games and seeing the Tigers closer, is disappointing, it's heartbreaking...but it is not being dominated.

Bad news is you're right the Tigers are better than us...good news is its only May and who knows what the season holds. Teams had been known to look unbeatable during the regular season only to go into a slump and be bounced early in the playoffs. Time will tell.

I wouldn't say they're "more superior", if anything the O's completely outclassed them in Game 2 only to have Tommy Hunter completely meltdown. If Darren O'Day stays in, I think Game 2 is an O's win. Game 1 was a toss up until Buck left Norris in a bit too long.

As for Game 3? The O's idiotic decision to call up Gausman on short rest is what caused that cluster of a mess.

It was a much closer game than the final scores dictated, IMHO. Are the Tigers a better team overall? Yes. BUT this series didn't actually showcase it aside from 1 inning in each game, IMHO.

I agree with this...but your quotes in another thread sound like a different person.

    • Ha.  Let me guess.  Ryan Mountcastle and Kyle Stowers.  😀
    • Kiley McDaniel newest mock has us taking college SS Kaelen Culpepper. Mentions that we are considered to be the floor with Carson Benge, but he goes to Milwaukee at 17 (who Kiley says is “all over” him). Also lists Kellon Lindsey, Dakota Jordan, Vance Honeycutt as guys we’ve been “mentioned” with, as well as Brody Brecht. Says we appear to be “shooting for upside.”
    • JD Martinez would be nice right now. I know I wasnt the only one who wanted him
    • What you just named are a bunch of guys with poor approaches…so I wouldn’t expect them to be reliable in any situation. I mean, Mounty and Santander can certainly get scorching hot and Mullins and Hays have been good players in the past but none of them are guys you feel confident in unless they get a hit. For all the grief we gave guys like Hicks and Frazier last year, they had good approaches and would take good at bats, even when they were sucking. They didn’t do much with anything most of the time but you at least felt good about them giving you a good at bat most of the time.  That’s why I think Cowser will eventually be really good in these situations. It’s why I think Adley is good in them…same with Gunnar.  Same with Holliday when he gets up here  But players with poor approaches who like to go fishing a lot?  It’s just not going to work out for them in the long run.
    • It did need to be pointed out though. 24 year old at high A is no great feat. Basallo is at double A 5 years younger. Sometimes you have to swallow your pride and look around for help. I would continue to try to poach coaches and scouts from great organization at developing pitching. The Pirates already had Skenes and Jones come up. They have 2 kids in Harrington and Chandler coming soon. They have invested in pitching and now are set for the future barring injury.
    • It was 6-9 last year as well IIRC.
    • It’s okay.  It’s a “Phil” thing.  Have you ever noticed any poster with the name “Phil” all have something else in common?   🙂
