Okay, not really. I'm just trying to do a complete 180 from some of our, um, premature exuberation in the hopes to steer us back to the course of destiny we had once been on.

Losing your 2nd most important player will do that. Especially when your third is batting .180

We just need to play good teams since we for whatever reason play down to our level of competition

I have said this for years about the O's. They always seem to play up or down to the level of the competition. Not sure why but it just seems to happen regularly.

Yep, I'm doing a loser lap. I dont care what you orange kool-aid drinkers think. The O's have lost this division....and going to the basement mind you. The Yankees are on fire. And the Blue Jays....Lets talk about the Blue Jays! Hey, they're gonna run away and hide right? Well probably not, but they will probably secure a Wildcard. The Yankees are the ones running away with this division. Gosh, I think the O's are even challenging for worst team in baseball. I might be wrong.

So yeah, this division race is over. Done. Loser lap in progress. Mmmmm, I need another drink.

Losing the division to the Yankees is going to be a tough pill to swallow, but they now have an equivalent or superior player at every position on the diamond. We can't beat the Cubs, we will see if we can steal enough games from the Rays and Yankees to back into the playoffs.

    • They don't have the one and done anymore. I believe it's a 3 game series now.
    • Wondering if Norby is the future 1B and Westburg is traded.
    • Juan Gonzalez won a gold glove one year he was basically a DH.  Seeing how much a media darling Ortiz was, I'm surprised he didn't win one.
    • The entire outfield wall moved back!  I support it just to hear opposing teams' sluggers whine. 
    • Years back I remember when a pitcher (Don't remember his name) was told he'd won a GG.  He responded "Really? I don't even think I'm a good fielder."
    • One way to look at it is that we were three runs away from making the playoffs. We lost opening day 2-1 to Tampa and then we lost to them in extra innings on July 27. If we score two more runs on opening day and one more run in the first nine innings of that extra inning loss, we make the playoffs.
    • I'd be very surprised if they acquire an outfielder unless one of Mullins, Santandar or Hays are traded.  With Stowers and McKenna already in the MLB and Cowser knocking down the door, I think getting an outfielder is very low on the priority list for Elias.   I think next year Stowers will be given a shot at first base, and he will be a 1st/OF player.  I would hope the stupid platoon thing that was done to him this year stops as his splits are fairly even historically.  With Mountcastle and Hays slumping often we need someone with a decent bat who can fill in both positions, and Stowers could fill such a role and get some significant playing time as such.  Vavra is a bit more complicated.  We have a need for a good 2nd baseman, but I'm not sure Vavra is the answer there.  Urias and Mateo look to finish out the ss/3rd positions, and then of course there is Westburg waiting in the wings.  With Odor gone I think Vavra gets more playing time at 2nd and around the infield in general.  But I could also see 2nd base being a place where we bring in another vet, but one better with the bat than Odor.
