Today is the sixth, but in any case, the Orioles need to take care of Peavy and the rest of their business.

Thanks, Don. :)

Weams, Tony, Paul, please edit the thread title when you can.

Really? John Lackey running his mouth about Cruz? I cannot stand that guy. :angryfire:

Lackey's a low life, regardless of his Cruz comments. Let's go Orioles and KG, let's win the rubber game. This is an important game. We want to stay on a winning roll, and beat a division foe with a losing record, let's bury BOS.

Divorced his wife while she was recovering from breast cancer.

I know right? What a first class a-hole. Maybe Lackey should take PEDs so he can have the strength to close his freakin' mouth while he's pitching. He's probably the only person I've seen who's physical appearance wouldn't change were he to become a part of a zombie apocalypse.

Howdy all,

I hope we can take the series today. Offense was a little disappointing in game one yesterday, but they hit a couple of dingers, and then put together a few hits with runners in scoring position in one big inning to take a lead that our bullpen would not let loose. A shame that Nelson didn't get his cycle-it look like he may have started off the plate a little slowly, but it was an exciting play in any case.

    • I think Urias fits perfectly on next years team.    A decision has to be made on Ortiz or Westburg, unless they just don’t carry much value around the league, which is unlikely. Urias is a perfect back up IFer.  
    • I used the only information that’s available. If I did anything else it would no doubt be treated with accusations that I wouldn’t want to deal with. I did read an article that says the Wonderlic was replaced by it in 2022. There is no saying whether he took it or scored. BTW, Bryce Young scored 98% according to reports. While I like the Bama guy I think his height and light build are against him no matter how smart he is.
    • Just chipping in here on Urias... his power outage combined with defensive lapses of late (not to mention younger competition in house) have me ready to move on after this season. Potential payoff heroics might even sweeten the trade value instead of appetite to retain him. 
    • It was huge. I wasn't old enough to read it until about the 1980 version, but I'd check it out from the library every few weeks and probably read it cover to cover multiple times. It was there that I found things like Willie Keeler's .432 average in 1897, for the National League Baltimore Orioles, of all things. I think many people don't realize that before the McMillan Encyclopedia there was no single comprehensive source for this information. In many cases no source at all. You mention the Whos Whos in Baseball publications, but they only had active players. And I'm not sure how accurate they were, or how comprehensive. If you wanted to see who won the American League in 1907... I don't know. Or who won the 1922 batting title if you didn't have a stack of old Sporting News or Spalding Guides. There were some earlier books, like one called Daguerreotypes, but they were not well known or widely available or probably very accurate. I think it's true that when Ty Cobb retired he probably didn't know how many hits he actually had. When Babe Ruth started hitting homers some writer had to go dig around old guides and total stuff up to see if he was getting near some career record. The main reason a lot of HOF selections from before the 1970s were a little wacky was that the voters mostly were relying on 20 or 50 year old memories because they didn't have a reference. "Oh yea, I remember Bobby Wallace, the greatest shortstop... or was it third baseman... in the 1890s or something." That and the fantastically screwed up voting systems. The Encyclopedia was the beginning of the end of people who'd tell these long-winded stories of great feats of baseball from decades ago that were mostly not true. End of the Cliff Clavin era.
    • I’d say Tampa.    I don’t want to see Arozarena in a playoff series. Ever. He kills us and I’m sure he’d go off on a big stage.  Their pitching is really good.
