I had to actually go out and install an ad blocker for this site specifically. Without ad blocker this site was unusable on my IPhone.

Did a new window pop up after the page loads and then redirects you to the App Store for a download? That's what mine does and it's annoying as hell.

I may turn off my adblocker now... I would like to support the site, but some of those adds had my cpu sounding like a jet engine all the time.

I turned mine off for this site earlier this year. Previously, the load times were drastically slower with the ads enabled, but it looks like now that they are not that much different from having an ad blocker installed.

Most of us know about ad blockers. Many of us keep ours off to support the site.

Thanks. We appreciate the fact that people that some people understand that it costs money to run a site like this and ads are the way to keep things going. O'm always amazed at people who think they deserve everything for free and aren't even willing to look at some ads. We go out of way to make sure auto audio, pop ups, pop under and other annoying ads are not part of the Hangout. We also work with people when certain problem ads can be pinpointed, even when the vast majority of the time it's really the person has something on their device that is triggered by a the flash on some ads.

Trust me, I get offers everyday from companies that want to bring more intrusive ads to this site, but I turn them down in order to keep the experience as good as possible, even when it means less revenue.

Either way, I appreciate when great Hangouters like yourself ensure ads can be seen so we can continue to bring you this site. even if it means a second or two longer load time.

I don't have any ad blockers, but please fix the damn you won a free iPhone 6s ad that always shows up on my mobile when I'm on the web. There is no way to go around it. It automatically redirects me from orioles hangout to a third party site. I often lose the place in the thread that I was reading. This has essentially eliminated my desire to check out orioleshangout whenever im on mobile, and I happen to use my phone for surfacing more than pc in the past two years.

Our recommendation is to download the tapatalk app. We have no idea why that happens on I phones. Then again, you should be using an Android anyways! lol Seriously though, we are at a loss over the iphone issue. We have nothing that should be coming up so I'm not sure if it's a vbulletin thing or what.

    • Yeah, I admit I got baited by the thread title a bit and popped off before actually listening to the thing.  It doesn't really change that I've always been concerned about Cal being part of the ownership group, but I was definitely hasty to be like "SEE??". Anyway, I've got my eye on Cal. The guy just rubs me the wrong way. But hopefully nothing much to see here, or in the future. 
    • Meanwhile, I have a question about Mayo’s defense.  Everybody implies that it’s dreadful. I guess I can understand that he’s not Manny or Brooks, but how bad is it? Are we hoping he’s at least as good as George Brett, about whom someone once said,(paraphrasing), “his defense is so bad it’s like he carries his bat to the base instead of his glove.“? I love defense, and I see absolutely no reason to move Westburg away. if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. It seems far more advisable to plunk Mayo at first and do something with the guys we currently have there?  
    • I think the thread title was misleading.  Not necessarily intentionally.  But if you just  see that without reading everything that was said and considering the context, it would be concerning.  
    • You know, for $24 a year, a measly lousy 24 bucks a year, you can edit your comment. And you can also support @Tony-OHwho has done more work online to create an Orioles environment than literally anybody else in the entire Internet universe.
    • I think there see plenty of guys who will stay with a contending team they like if the money is close.   But Burnes clearly intends to test the market.   No significant home team discount is coming, and it just takes one team to offer something crazy to knock us out of the picture unless we’re just being stupid. 
    • When Mateo is hitting well, he really makes you wonder why he can’t do it all the time.   He looks really balanced at the plate, he uses all fields, etc.  He doesn’t look like a bad hitter who happens to be on a heater.   But that’s what his track record shows he is, until proven otherwise.  I remember that Fangraphs article last year about how Mateo had changed his approach and the improvement seemed real.  Well, no it wasn’t.  But maybe his issues are more psychological than physical?   He’s just a guy who when he slumps, quickly loses confidence and starts pressing and makes it worse?   I don’t know.    As to your point about OBP: in 2024, a .299 OBP is below average but I might not say it blows.  The MLB average is back down to .312 after a spike last year after the rule changes.  Of 312 players with 80+ PA, Mateo’s .299 ranks 191st, or 39th percentile.   Honestly, in this environment, if Mateo could stay at .299 OBP he’d be a very credible player.   But he’s a .272 career OPS guy who’d been at .267 the last two years, so I’m not expecting he’ll be able to stay at .299.   I’ll enjoy it while he’s hot though.   And he is playing a mean 2B.   Took him a couple of weeks to settle in there, but he’s looked great for the last month.    
    • I broached the experiment of Holliday in CF some months ago.  It seems to be something that could make sense.  I still expect he'll be our 2B moving forward, but having such versatility is never a bad thing.
