Dang Mora knocked himself in his knee hard.

How does exactly the same thing happen to two of our players two nights apart? Hopefully this bad thing doesn't come in threes. :bangwall:

Also, is the sound issue with MASN or mlb.tv? The ads on mlb.tv sound fine but I can barely hear the play by play with the volume turned all the way up on both the mlb player and my computer.

C'mon O's, win this one for HeatherC12, she's had about all the baseball-related heartbreak a fan can take today with her real team losing to the Wannabe Evil Empire in extras after the big comeback off bigmouth Papelbon.

Thank you. :D I'm bummed the guys couldn't pull off the win but dang it felt good to see my guys give Boston a stroke at the end of that game! Edwin crushed that ball and Papelbon was throwing things in the dugout between innings, LOL :laughlol: I hope the guys are encouraged that aside from a few random things today (and more than a few blown calls by the home plate ump which it sounds like the O's are having trouble with tonight too), they were hanging right there with Boston for the whole game and easily could have ended up taking this one from Boston too. Hopefully Beckett left his good stuff back in Boston and Homer Bailey brought all of his with him for tomorrow's game. I'm greedy now and I want the series!! :clap:

Go O's!!! :)

    • This is all true. And inversely, Ortiz has the first half of the season at AAA to hit enough to demand Mateo's job.  It works both ways.  
    • It also let’s us get a better look at some of these prospects, to see what we have. I think it’s smarter to be patient and not start trading our big trade chips just yet. Hernaiz was definitely expendable, so I’m really happy with this trade. Ideally, by the trade deadline, Holliday has shown signs that he’s the future at SS and we can confidently trade from our depth at SS to improve our pitching again. 
    • Only way a Profar-Orioles rumor makes sense is if it came from Profar's agent.
    • I don't think he's ever going to comfortably part with the top guys in the system until there are clearly established players on the ML team that would actually block those players he'd be looking at trading. For example, I think once Gunnar and whomever of Westburg/Norby/Ortiz/Mayo lock down two spots (and assuming Holliday is ascending), at that point he'll look to trade whoever hasn't earned regular playing time (but is hopefully still maintaining trade value by performing well in AAA). I think he's worried of trading the wrong guys and having whoever he's left with bust at the ML level, especially if it's in pursuit of a pitcher with minimal long-term team control.
    • Interesting it's possible, I've never cared for either of the brothers so maybe Louis is in the right. I just want the team to get sold and out of this dysfunctional family's hands. 
    • Looking at some of his stats for the last two years, he really looks like the type of guy we would've ran out there for the 2012-2016 teams. H/9, K/9, BB/9, HR/9, WHIP, and K/BB all fall into ranges you would see from Tillman, Chen, Miguel Gonzales, Bud Norris, etc. They all generally had higher ERA+, I assume on account of the ballpark factors? At a glance his numbers from his two years in Oakland match up very similarly to Chen's first two years in Baltimore (2012-2013). I'd be interested in how their stuff compares and if there could be a comp there for those who may know more. I don't think he's dominant by any stretch, but I'm hopeful he can be a solid SP to a playoff rotation over the next four years.
    • I guess the only question left is whether Urias and Mateo are still on the opening day roster. The IF still seems a little crowded with Westburg and Ortiz knocking on the door.    My guess at this point is they both start the season here but at least one of them is in another uniform after the trade deadline.
