It wasn't anything near a meatball really. Amazingly, Thorne described it pretty well. It was a ball that "leaked" back over the plate. Or more to the point, he started it in but it had so much movement that it moved back towards the middle and give Ackley some credit. He shortened up and put a good swing on it.

You and I knew that. I get really mad when people just make stuff up.

Sometimes you hit it hard for an easy double play.

Sometimes you shank a little blooper in between the infielders and the outfielders, and you get a single.

And 70 percent of the time, if you are a hall of famer, you fail.

Hard to say who is owns the biggest slump on this team right now: Cruz, Davis, Schoop, I could even include the catchers.One thing is for sure, if someone doesn't break out soon, this team despite its record will have serious problems.

I wish we had added a bat at 2B.

Schoop worked a walk, at least.

Do you remember how the game became tied?

Yes Yankees hit a HR. But if the Orioles played small ball that solo HR doesn't hurt you.

Cruz and Schoop. Davis is strangely a more on base kinda guy,

    • If I'm reading this correctly, the Orioles are 6th in defensive value this year and the White Sox are dead last by a lot: to date, they're at -54 runs; the worst team in baseball for all of '23 was -72 (https://www.baseball-reference.com/leagues/team_compare.cgi?request=1&year=2024&lg=MLB&stat=runs_fielding). So the difference between Burnes and Fedde must be the defensive adjustment. FWIW, fWAR using FIP has them even at 2.0 WAR apiece; using RA9 Burnes is ahead 2.9 to 2.4.
    • One game at a time. Let’s go O’s 👍🏻
    • You do realize our pen has given up fewer runs, fewer hits, fewer BBs, has a lower WHIP, and has more Ks?  I get that they don’t pass your eye test, but the numbers don’t back that up.  With all that said, I think they need to reinforce the pen but let’s stop with the dramatics.  
    • The OP is too pessimistic. NYY is 5-5 in their last 10, Orioles are 8-2. NYY have cooled down, as predicted. The O's are getting them at the right time. With that said, it's baseball. Anything can happen. I would be surprised if the Orioles don't take at least 2 out of 3, though.
    • Objectively speaking I would have WAY MORE confidence in Rodon than Irvin/Kremer/Suarez. And I LOVE what both Irvin and Suarez have done for us this season and couldn’t have dreamed of either giving us any more than they have.
    • Holliday is not getting traded IMO, so there’s really no point in discussing that. But there is a case to be made that the other two are a bit redundant and if we plan on doing some extensions, they could be expendable (at least one of them). Off the top of my head. I would strongly consider Miller or Crochet for one of them. I guess I look at it like this, I can see a realistic plausible scenario of us winning a championship or more without the services of Basallo or Mayo. However, I cannot see ya winning this season as is without a meaningful upgrade to the current pitching. Many said all last season, the pitching was good as is, until it (predictably) wasn’t.
    • Well for starters, there closer and set up man are both better than ours. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that the Yanks pen is better than the Phills by any stretch. But it is better than ours.
