The Orioles Were Represented Well In Miami Last Nite 5/22

We had great seats, first row behind the Orioles dugout. Ive never sat that close. We were 15' or less away from the players in the dugout. It was really fun to see how they interact in the dugout during the game.

A small crowd in Miami but I was surprised at how many Orioles fans were there. Where we sat the tickets are listed on the Marlins website for $174 per ticket. I was able to buy them from a season ticket holder for $100 per ticket. Thats face value for a season ticket holder.

In those lower, clubhouse box sections it seemed like Orioles fans made up 1/3 of the crowd. It was a great time, especially after the errant throw over 3rd by Alvarez that allowed the tying run to score.

Just a perfect night in Miami for Bird fans. A great turnout with lots of cartoon bird caps and Orioles attire. Most of the jerseys were Machado. Saw a Surhoff, Palmer, couple Brooks, and a few Ripken, even a #3 Billy Ripken.

Before the game my 8 yr old boy got a Chris Davis autograph and Cabrera. Adam Jones and Steve Pearce signed but he wasnt in the right spot to get theirs. Adam and Chis both signed quite a few during batting practice.

Sounds like you had a great time.

Hope you Floridians can keep turning out. Fan support might make a difference to Mike Wright.

Buck's birthday, an opportunistic win last night, the Marlins' recent ineptness, the Yankees trailing 10-0. Things are looking up. I'm even happy with putting De Aza out there right now.

I posted this in last night's game thread:

Sounds like there are A LOT of Orioles fans in Marlins Stadium.

There was a huge roar on that overthrow by Alvarez just now.

That was the loudest cheer of the night I think. Its as if we KNEW the game was ours at that point. Delmon Young's double was great, and Manny's double may have had a lil louder cheering than Delmon's, but that overthrow at 3rd was it.

    • Eh, noise. IDGAF anyway, having cut the cord long ago. I know the feeling though… Dish pulled that BS a couple years ago. I’m hoping Rubenstein can find a way to ala carte everything. There will certainly be demand.
    • I haven’t seen this mentioned anywhere, but Irvin morphed his slider into a cutter last year that is by far his best pitch by Stuff+. He threw it 16% of the time too, decent usage but could be increased more. He’s always going to score poorly in stuff for pitch models but very well in command grades, so even some slight upticks in stuff could make a big difference. His curve is also decent. He relies a lot on his fastball/sinker/change, so I’d be interested in him moving more towards the cutter/curve (which generally are still effective against RH batters). Irvin was absolutely unreal horrific in his first few starts last season, which tanked his season numbers (particularly xERA), but really righted the ship after that. He’s a decent piece to be a 5th starter, he’s been very durable, throws a lot of strikes and as a result can pitch a lot of innings (if you aren’t pulling him early in close games), and is a good fit for OPACY. It’s just a bad spot that our depth chart is already whittled down to him being that to start the year. 
    • Things aren’t looking good for MASN and comcast.     Would still figure they find a way to get a deal done but it doesn’t seem as certain as I think it was.
    • Verlander needs 140 IP and a clean doctor's note to assure himself of 1/35 next season but if he misses that I could see him somewhere on Elias' target list for the year over year Lyles-Gibson-Kimbrel 1-year contract stretch. Its a bit of an art question for baseball how it wants to grapple with all Friedman and Driveline have brought to the game.    Roki Sasaki or Paul Skenes or even Grayson Rodriguez might be their generation's Justin Verlander but today's game will constrain them from revealing it as fully to baseball fans even if they are. Verlander has become a TJ statistic in recent years, but for me he really isn't - every bit of work on his Hall of Fame plaque was done before the surgeon took some of him.
    • Buried in the article, but it says this:   “Verlander said he heard at the trade deadline that the Dodgers and Orioles were interested, and he said he’d have accepted Los Angeles or even Baltimore if those were the options. “I’m from Virginia,” Verlander said. But when Houston, where he’d won his rings, became viable, he said he was happy to “steer things” that way.”
    • Has the added benefit of being on the 40-man already, so nobody necessarily needs to be removed for him to come up as a reliever later in the season.
