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

I couldn't care less if anyone ever agrees with me, but I take offense at anyone calling me "garbage." Nobody would do that to me in person without consequence nor are they going to do so here. By consequence, that means me defending myself from verbal attack.

I didn't call you garbage. You told me that i must feel very proud about calling your post nonsense. I responded that it's not really a feeling of pride, but more like the feeling you get from taking out the garbage. You take out the garbage right? Are we good?.

Nah, no way that is what you meant. Stop trying to spin your way out of it. Even now you just stated you have the same feeling as taking out the garbage. So that is inferring that my posts are "garbage" and you are "taking them out."

You know full well that is what you meant. You remind me of Barney Fife in the episode where he locked up the entire town of Mayberry including Aunt Bee and Opie. Talk about overkill....to make a point... you have gone too far.:rolleyes:

Scary, Internet consequences?

Let it go, man. Let it go.

LOL. you have been egging me on with crap like this the whole way and whining at every response. I'm sure you're probably over there clicking the report violation tab at every response.

I even went out of my way to complement you on your initial post/OP. You then decided to engage in ridiculous, non-sensical, dumb, over the top rhetoric. Ok, garbage. Nobody agrees with you, because it's dumb.

Stop your whining because you got called on it. You own it.

We're not going to beat many teams with the following:

Nick scuffling

Manny scuffling

Crush scuffling

Pearce was hitting well; now benched

Lough batting .170

Wieters, our 2nd best player this year, on the DL

It's particularly frustrating that our starting pitching has improved right as we stopped scoring and Hunter imploded.

No, because they are not nearly at full force with their rotation. Whereas the Orioles were, and are..

They were? With Chris Davis on the DL and a one armed Wieters, the Orioles were not at full force and haven't been all year.

Now you speak for everyone here and yet I am giving "you" crap. That is just ridculous. You need to get a grip, not me. I have never reported anyone on any message board as I find that extremely juvenile, like a tattle tale in grade school. I got called on what? That you didn't like my posts. That is fine, but you don't need to insult me personally. And if you decide to go that route be advised, I will defend my self. If you have been around her long enough, you sure ought to know that by now.... It is pure B.S. and you know it trying to blame me for you getting out of hand with the personal attack and totally unnecessary. I do not recant one word I have posted on this thread to you or anyone else. If you don't like it too bad... you can insult me all you want and you will lose trying to bully me. But never worry about me reporting anyone. It will never happen, not in a million years so get that through your head.

You may be a rookie but this is a darn good post. I agree with you...:thumbsup1:

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.

And the reason they are not having a "bad" season is they are a superior team. So I rest my case...

The Tigers are clearly a superior team, I don't know how anyone could disagree. The series vs the Tigers wasn't a drumming, though. I think we could potentially compete with them in a 7 game series at full strength.

See, I don't see them potentially competing with them in any series.. Ubaldo pitched the best game he will probably ever throw against them and they still lost because of a guy pretending to be a closer who isn't cutting it. I don't dislike Hunter on the team, I just don't want him closing games. He isn't good enough in that role.

    • The pitcher …the guys here are overvaluing prospects. Id honestly trade quite a lot if it got us a ring.
    • Yeah, also interested to hear some thoughts on the draft from people!
    • Bradish was shut down and then did a full rehab before he started pitching again. Anyway go ahead and believe what you are going to believe, I'm not going to try and convince you, but there are some facts you are leaving out.
    • And how many of those teams rotations would you trade for the one that we have currently? In just about any/every projected playoff matchup save for the Guardians and maybe the Twins, the other team has the matchup advantage in the series. IMO those are long odds when trying to be successful in multiple rounds of the playoffs in October. Maybe you are comfortable with that? I am not.
    • I doubt Elias would be much moved to act a week before the deadline when asks by Sellers still skew high but I guess it is worth noting the Orioles play their Marlins series July 23-25. Who Tanner Scott and AJ Puk and Burch Smith and Vinny Nittoli play for in any given 3-game series probably doesn't make a game of difference, and the division probably won't come down to 1 game.  
    • Remember Bradish pitched for 3 months with a torn UCL.  And pitched well.  Until he couldn't.  Just because a tear happens doesn't mean it will curtail you right away.   I saw FB's face and body language during that game.  Something was off.    I can speak of this from personal experience.  I have a torn UCL and a bone chip the size of a quarter in my right elbow, and have had it for years.  Back from when I first got it looked at 20 years ago.   I just lived with the pain.  Sometimes up to 8 tylenol a day.   It always hurts and it wasn't until I was bowling one specific shot a few years ago and it completely blew out that I had to go to a orthopedist for it.   I just rested it for 3 months and have done nothing overhand as far as sports and working out since.  Anytime I throw overhand?  It kills. No way I could throw a baseball 80 times a game.  My arm would probably fall off.    The elbow really controls your overhand throws.  Underhand and side arm is not nearly as bad. 
    • How many teams won the trade deadline with a big time acquisitions and then won the championship.   2023 Rangers traded for rental Montgomery a solid mid rotation guy and rental Chapman nice bullpen piece. 2022 Astros traded for Trey Mancini 2021 Braves traded for Solor, Rosario, and Duvall.   2020 Covid year with weird deadline 2019 Nats traded for Daniel Hudson and Roenilis Ellis  2018 Red Sox traded for Andrew Cashner  2017 Astros traded for Justin Verlander which was a great pickup and changed there team when he bounced back but the trade itself was for very little in terms of prospects and more salary dump for rebuilding Tigers.    2016 Cubs trade for Chapman and Mike Montgomery.   2015 Royals traded for Johnny Cueto a veteran rental starter coming off all star season but pitched to a 4.86 ERA for Royals .  Also traded for Ben Zobrist.   2014 Giants traded for Jake Peavy as a rental.
