Ray Knight crying about grounds crew watering down OPACY infield

Recommended Posts

Knight was mentioned on 105.7 this morning.

Said they heard him last night complaining about the Oriole grounds crew watering down the infield and taking away the National's speed game.

Guess he has really turned into a Nats homer.

This is a trend the O's have been on for a while. After all they actually made it rain Sunday seeking to slow down the Astros.

Him and Dempsey should get together. Maybe in the watered down grassy knoll was the shooter. Can't watch those post game shows. Too much stupidity is spouted.

Instead going to watch this when it starts. Now this is must see TV.


I wish there was a knob on the TV so you could turn up the intelligence. They got one marked "brightness" but it don't work, does it?

"Gentlemen. You can't fight in here. This is the War Room!"

From the Post:

The Orioles-Nationals on-field rivalry has occasionally sizzled, but more often hasn’t elicit as much passion as a typical divisional rivalry. Now a couple of MASN broadcasters are coming to the rescue.

First came Bob Carpenter, the Nats TV voice, who appeared on ESPN 980’s “The Sports Reporters” Monday afternoon, not long after Stephen Strasburg was sent to the disabled list. Thom Loverro was sitting in with the program, and he mentioned that he had just run into Jim Kaat in Baltimore.

“I love Jim Kaat, but he just tore this team a new you-know-what when the Strasburg shutdown happened,” Loverro said, then mentioning that MASN’s Gary Thorne had also been critical of the Nats back then.

Bob Carpenter can be butthurt all he wants. Whatever. And if anything, he's proven Thorne right. They shut him down, lost in the playoffs, and 4 years later, he's having elbow trouble. Yeah, that shutdown sure worked out well....

The general vibe amongst DC media pundits is that the shutdown is vindicated because Strasburg's arm is still attached to his shoulder.

    • Someone should ask him about maybe having the highest prices for beer of any team? This is at the new market stores. 16oz beers are $10.99 for domestic and $12.49 for craft, hard, seltzers, or imported beers. 24oz beers are $14.99 for domestic and $15.75 for imports or hard seltzers. 12oz canned cocktails are $12.99.
    • I would say "stunning".... but is it, really?
    • Don't like this answer either.He is going to do Baltimore a favor and give them a gift. Don't trust him. Plus the Ravens stadium improvement money may not all come from bonds and maybe have to partially pay it off with a bank loan. As the MSA said the longer you wait on the financing, the more it will cost the taxpayers. I have heard the longer you wait and with interest rates rising the State is not sure the Orioke improvements can all be done with public funds.   The Orioles will play their first home game next Thursday, and Gov. Wes Moore and his children will throw out the first pitch. The Orioles’ current lease with the state of Maryland, its landlord, expires at the end of the year. Angelos has said that he hopes signing a long-term lease can be an “All-Star break gift,” meaning the deal would be done by early July. He didn’t provide an update on timing Thursday when asked, but said “we’re going to come through” when it comes to the lease. “There’s no question about it,” he said.
    • During the game, Angelos was asked if the Orioles would seek contract extensions with players such as Rutschman or top rookie Gunnar Henderson. Other teams have signed young players to long-term deals to avoid losing them later in free agency. For example, Wander Franco signed an 11-year, $182 million deal with the Tampa Bay Rays — a small-market team like the Orioles — this offseason. The Cleveland Guardians, another franchise Angelos pointed to as a team the Orioles would like to emulate, this week signed their young star, Andrés Giménez, to a seven-year contract reportedly worth $106.5 million. Angelos first pointed to the difficulty that small market teams face in MLB as compared to the NFL but did say he hoped that executive vice president and general manager Mike Elias would be able to extend the team’s young talent.   They’re going to do what they can within the system that they’re in. Does that mean extensions? Absolutely, I would hope so. But you gotta go with the system you’re in. It’s much, much, much tougher to be in the baseball system than in the football or basketball system,” he said.
    • “It’s an interesting concept and I saw that my good friends at The Baltimore Sun wanted to weigh in on that today. When the hedge fund that owns The Baltimore Sun, based in New York City, wants to open their books, I guess we’ll take a look at that. It’s difficult for me to understand what that fascination is,” Angelos said in the interview during the Orioles’ 10-9 win over the host Boston Red Sox on opening day.
    • Since Angelos’ offer in January, The Sun has requested information about a potential meeting with Angelos to discuss the team’s financials, but no meeting has ever been arranged. “When I say something — like I’m gonna sit down with you guys, explain the business from my perspective — I’m gonna do it,” Angelos said in February.
    • So he is fueding with the Baltimore Sun.. Angelos, the Orioles’ chairman and CEO, had twice this year told reporters that he would reveal details of the Orioles’ financial situation. However, when asked Thursday in an interview on 105.7 The Fan if and when he’d be following through on his word, Angelos indicated that he would not be. He responded to the radio hosts’ question by criticizing The Baltimore Sun, alluding to a recent Sun article on the topic.
