wow Weiters please hurry, Ramon can't even throw out Overbay a first baseman. I know some has to do with the pitchers, but he hasn't thrown anyone out in a while.

In all fairness to Ramon, BROB should have tagged him but he simply botched it. He assumed Overbay foot was going to slide into the base where BROB's glove was, but it was a smart play by Overbay to pull his leg up and go high and beat Roberts tag the bag.

That play there sums up this game for the Orioles.

the throw beat him to the bag but Roberts tagged the bag then forgot to actually tag Overbay and he slipped his foot in. Completely Roberts fault.

He didn't forget to tag Overbay, he put his glove down to make a sweep tag and Overbay didn't get there as fast as he expected. He was a little off balance from going up to get the high throw and may have thought he did tag him. He has had some trouble off and on with applying tags on SB attempts ever since his elbow injury. It may be fear of re-injuring that arm or worse yet (and I do think somewhat possible) he just doesn't have the same sensation in that hand that he did before all the muscle and nerve damage so he may be guessing as to whether or not his glove has actually touched the runner.

Cormier had the fake to thirs throw to first if he would have just thrown the ball to Millar. the guy at first was toast but Cormier decided to look back the runner at third for a second time. Would still be 3-0.

Roberts simply didn't leave his glove down like he was afraid he'd get spiked.

The guy on first wanted the rundown to set up a chance for the man on third to score.

But the replay showed that the guy at third had already started going back and the guy at first was hustling but was stuck. Hell throw it to Millar and get the guy going home. Versus holding the ball and get no shot at either runner.

Someone tell Jim Hunter to shut up about how great it is to watch the Blue Jays pitcher having a well pitched game. What an idiot!

    • The problem with a Cowser/Kjerstad/Stowers/Bradfield outfield roster is there are no right handers to handle LHP. I don't think and completely left handed outfield is the destination for an organization the values versatility.
    • Looks maybe concussion related. 
    • How can you not be romantic about baseball? This seems slightly poetic. I enjoyed reading, and correlated your experience in the stands back to what I watch in Game 1 on MASN.  It was also pretty cool to hear Jim Palmer give you a shout out in Game 2 of the series on Live TV.
    • I am not worried.  It just doesn’t remotely meet the eye test.  He has been great in the field . I can think of at least 3 outstanding plays he has made and not any that I thought he should have gotten but didn’t. Meanwhile Holliday is 3 OAA and I can’t think of an outstanding play and can think of a number I thought he should have made. 
    • Nicely stated Roy. Every since I was 9 years old and saw the O's vs. the Tokyo Giants in Tokyo in 1971, I've been infected with the Orange/Black virus. There is no cure and I don't want one. You and I sat at the lunch table with Jim Palmer at the 1970 World Series Champs reunion, and its still one of my enduring baseball memories. You said I looked like Carlton Fisk! I was at all 3 games in this Angels series, right behind the O's dugout. I got to see all our boys, and just simply love to watch this team play. And in true baseball fashion, the one game on paper we should have dominated (GRod vs. 8+ ERA Channing), we end up down 7-0 and lose. But watching Gunnar's homers, his electric triple, and he made a fantastic play today on a ball that went under Westburg's glove, Adley do Adley things, Cowser, holy crap. Kimbrel v. Trout with bases loaded, bottom of 9th, 2 outs, down by 2? That was fun. Next game Trout bats leadoff and torches a GRod fastball for a homer to the opposite field.  An observation.... If you didn't know anything about the team, and you only watched game 1 batting practice, you'd think Cowser and O'Hearn were the studs of the team. Mountcastle was taking BP with the reserves and he put on a show as well.  Home after 3 straight days watching this O's team, so jealous of the Balt fans in Balt that get to see the team with regularity. It's a special bunch.
    • emmett16 is right. Uppercut swings produce a lot of groundouts because the bat is not on the same plane as the ball for very long. The best swing stays on the same plane as the ball for a longer time. This will produce contact that creates backspin on the ball which makes it carry. That Ted Williams book is one of the best hitting books ever written.
