Dear Fans: Please don't do the wave while our pitcher is on the mound

I was at the game last night and the crowd broke out the wave, while I don't care for the wave, I do understand it's fun for some people. Maybe I'm overreacting here, but I saw the wave and I turned to my girlfriend and I said to her "that's gonna distract Kevin just watch." What happened? Kevin gave up that home run. At the time of the pitch it was nearly behind the plate. Please save that for the top half of innings

Dear fans, don't wave. Don't do the wave. Don't wave at your friends on t.v. from behind home plate while holding your fricken cell phone. Don't stand in the aisle and wave to your friends twenty sections over. Just don't wave. Don't.

I'd like seven nation army chant to die too.

It won't, because the Orioles pump it on the PA after every big AB. Do I think that it's run the course? Sure, but it gets the entire crowd into it. So, I'm fine with it. It also reminds me of 2012.

The wave is terrible.

Maybe it's just me. I did have quite a few beers last night, but I feel like this was the first game I've been to with significantly less seven nation army, tho there were a good amount of times to use it. It wasn't like a one to nothing game or anything. Anyone else feel this way?

I can appreciate the perspective from the traditionalist, purist, and elitist.

They make similar arguments to Baltimore fans yelling O during the anthem.

But I took my youth baseball team to a game and the wave broke out.

They loved it and it made their night even better.

I understand we live in a society where everything is offensive.

Songs, waves, chants, can all be ignored if you don't enjoy them.

Its a game played for entertainment.

As much as I dislike the wave, it's hard to argue with this very level-headed post. Besides, as long as we have the "canned" clapping and the way overused "day-o" sound clip the wave is far from the worst thing in the stadium.

Also, no clapping or cheering ... really, no gestures of any kind to distract these mental midgets from doing their jobs. ;):rolleyes:

Dear Fans:

Unless you wind up doing what Jeffrey Maier or Steve Bartman did, please stop presuming that your behavior/rituals, etc. will have any effect on the game(s) at hand.

Who said anything about the wave being offensive? Most of us hate it because it's outdated, dumb and shows that the game on the field is not interesting enough for you so you participate in alternate entertainment.

    • I agree that baseball players as a whole tend to be pretty good guys.   Hockey is another sport that has similar.  But there are still lots of idiots mixed in.   Arrogant A holes.   As I said Bauer is not an exemplary guy imo.  But if you watch his videos, yes he is cocky and somewhat conceited, but I don't see some weirdo.   I don't see him have major mental issues.  Watch the Hustler Casino Live poker stream that was on Saturday night that had guys like the boxer Ryan Garcia and bball player Jimmy Butler playing.   Those guys seemed strange to me and not people I would want to be around.  Again, at this point, if I am the Os and considering where they are pitching wise, there is a chance to get an elite arm for cheap.  Might not work out.  But I can promise you he is going to probably be better than guys like Tate and 3 or 4 of our other relievers. 
    • McDermott has pitched parts of 6 months in AAA.  Here is the monthly WHIP breakdown, August 23' 25.2 IP 1.05 WHIP September 23' 12 IP 0.75 WHIP March 24' 4.1 IP 1.38 WHIP April 24' 17 IP 2.06 WHIP May 24' 25.2 IP 1.25 WHIP June 24' 23.1 IP 1.29 IP That April 2024 WHIP really skews the numbers.  
    • Most women are telling the truth.  But there are women who lie about this sort of thing and 2 of the women accusing Bauer have been shown to be lying.  I haven't followed the other cases against Bauer so I won't comment on those.  But it is true that the court of public opinion can lead to a company cutting ties with someone, even if their innocent to avoid flak (For the record I'm not saying Bauer is fully innocent, I haven't looked into the other charges).   Bauer is fortunate that he is well off and set for life, as the average joe doesn't have this luxury.  In any case, I think Bauer should have been more careful about the type of women he had relations with.  He really should also see a psychologist/psychiatrist. Anyway, in regards to him ending up on a MLB club, I personally don't think any team picks him up.  But if Elias decides to, I'll defer to his judgment.    
    • Bauer might be totally innocent.  Which begs the questions. 1. Is MLB just using this against him because they don’t like him? 2. Why did the arbitrator not totally absolve him? 3. Why isn’t the players union fighting harder for him?  
    • I won't be apologizing to RZNJ or Moose, who clearly came into this thread to name call and antagonize. I am sure your feelings were not hurt by anything I said. I am sorry to everyone else who was disturbed by my choice of words. I doubt this is enough to avoid a 60 day ban. Good luck at the trade deadline. I hope we can acquire something other than mediocre patchwork pieces.
