Some interesting facts:

The Angels have the worst offense in the AL West (fewest runs scored) but the best pitching / defense (fewest runs allowed).

Pujols has a .676 OPS. As long as we don't pitch to Trout hopefully our staff will keep it together!

Roch reports Norris is ill and could miss Saturday's start. Ill or not, he should be skipped over. He's hurting this ball club and he needs as few starts as possible for now.

Wonder what schedule TJM is on? Or is he with the big club? I forget...

Ok so Buck has a higher baseball IQ than I, but I've been puzzled for a while now. Why is the player with the 4th highest OPS currently on the team constantly batting 9th. 2ndly, de Aza? and why is one of the worst hitter on the team batting 2nd?

    • I'd love to see the P&L for the Orioles.  We all know Angelos is a liar regarding what the Os can afford and not afford in terms of long-term contracts.  But this thread got me thinking...~2MM people at an avg ticket price of $34 (link to avg ticket price:  https://www.statista.com/statistics/203453/baltimore-orioles-average-ticket-price/) basically pays the entire big league roster by itself.  Sponsorships/Concessions/Concerts etc likely pay the front office staff and other facility/minor league expenses.  So basically Angelos is pocketing close to $100MM annually ($60MM national TV share + $40MM MASN TV share).  Heck, let's say I underestimated the "other expenses" outside of the MLB payroll by $50MM....he's still pocketing $50MM/year.... 
    • He was in like 6th grade. Well on his way!!!!!!!!
    • So I think Povich is on turn today.   Is he getting the ball for the deciding game of the International League championship series?   If so, that’s a huge test for him. He pitched against Durham one other time and had a great outing, allowing one run on one hit in 6 IP.  He’d be going on “only” four days’ rest, so if he’s pitching, it will be interesting to see what he’s got in the tank.  
    • Certainly on of the best "demotion to AAA" success stories I can remember.
    • Not disappointed at all.  It was a rough road for him to start but he's been tremendous since coming back from the minors.  A strong finish (over an extended period of time, too) makes up for how rocky the season started for him. I agree with Froberto Duran.  I will have very high expectations for him next year.
    • Good thread bump.  Even though Rodriguez’s ERA was higher than I expected, because of the way it happened, I am not disappointed.   I wasn’t expecting him to have such serious hiccups early, but his performance after he returned from AAA vastly exceeded my expectations for him. And, he threw more innings (163.1) than I expected, counting his AAA work.  Postseason innings to come. If we do a “Grayson Rodriguez Expectations 2024” thread, my expectations will be pretty damned high.    
    • While I will take it on faith that Gunnar Henderson was extaordinarily talented in his age 11 season, I do not think the Orioles can claim the credit for developing him in 2012. 😎
