The Yankees aren't all of a sudden beating down the door they have won 15 out of 24 games in August, including series wins against Seattle, Cleveland, Boston and Tampa (and now us). They are the definition of a surging team right now. Meanwhile we have won 11 games in August and dropped series to Houston, Boston (Sweep), Oakland and now the Yankees. We need to go on a tear to avoid being surpassed. I am not a doom and gloomer who says its over but they have been in this for a couple of weeks.

I don't care about fourth place.

I care about the playoffs.

Actually, looking at how Dan operates it might be best if the O's tank and end up with a protected first round pick. ;)

Would that even be possible at this point? They would have to lose like all but one game the rest of the way

Don Henley arrested in 1980 in Los Angeles for contributing to delinquency of a minor. Guess he's had some dirty laundry too. What's in your closet? :)

She was a 16 year-old girl that was arrested for prostitution.

Henley pleaded guilty to corrupting the morals of a teenage hooker.

And that is the rest of the story. This is Paul Harvey Good Day.

The Radio show was a sensation for various reasons. This is why it is needed to point out that some blank statements that have no beginning, middle or end, just a pieces parts are not credible at face value. Thanks OFFNY.

Let me get this straight, He had some type of sexual contact with a teenage girl, gets caught doing so, and then he whines about it in a song?

Somehow I doubt if he cut the young lady in on the royalties for being his "muse."

Stand up guy that Don Henley.

Then there is the rest, rest of the story.

Don Henley was arrested in 1980 in Los Angeles and charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor when paramedics were called to his home to save a naked 16-year-old girl overdosing on cocaine and Quaaludes. He was fined $2,000 and given two years' probation and ordered into a drug counseling program.

Many sixteen year old prostitutes are trafficked.

We will be in fourth place and six games out of it after the Toronto series I fear. We look like a worn down, beaten ball club.

That can happen when you're missing your all star CF, a key set-up reliever and your number 1 starter.

    • We do have different definitions of extension.   Means will be a FA after the season.  An extension is any contract the keeps him an Oriole instead of becoming a FA IMO.  One year or more.     Heck the O's may have extended Coulombe when they gave him an option year for 2025.  Its an extension if they pick up the option. If Means goes FA then he signs with the O's that is not an extension.   That is signing a new contract.
    • The 2nd paragraph is what I’m asking about.  You would just keep Vaughn at 2B, which is no penalty at all on that play because he wasn’t trying to advance.  Right?
    • By current rules? It's clear runner's interference, and the rule explicitly says that runners interference on an infield fly is a double play, with both the batter and the offending runner out.   Does that rule suck?  Yeah, kind of.  I'd be in favor of calling the ball dead on runner's interference on an infield fly, and just telling the runners to go back to their starting base.
    • One thing I will say is that if you were to make this call in the 2nd inning, you make it there too. A pet peeve of mine in pro sports are fans, analysts, players, coaches, etc…saying “you can’t make that call in that situation”. If it’s the rule, you make the call. It’s just that the call should never be made. Umps ignore the rule book strike zone all game long, so why enforce something as mundane as this?
    • The way the rule has been applied, contact in any shape or form constitutes "hindered" and you can interfere even if the runner doesn't make contact; merely forcing the fielder to go around you is runner's interference.
    • The O's can release Ort this afternoon.    Not every player should stay. I think there is a good chance the Santander, Hays and Mullins go next off season. Urias and McCann will be on the bubble.  Could go if there are good replacements. Is that enough change for you? Means is a solid, effective pitcher when healthy.  He has been through a long rehab.   Hopefully he is close to coming out on the other side of that period.   He is not likely to be very expensive like Burnes.    IMO he fits with the O's if he can show he can pitch effective in the last two thirds of this season. 
    • Thanks.  I know all that.  I was asking Hallas to explain something he said.
