Damn Burds, you and I have been on here since 6am this morning. Go do something productive Man, like help me kill my snakes! :D

Tomorrow won't be so friendly to me, Dip.

I did lots of procrasinating today. All you need is shovel for those snakes and you're good to go, but be prepared for mice and/or rats if you get rid of all your snakes!!!!!!

Wow- I just tuned in- and no joke- 3 of the 1st 5 pitches he couldn't handle. Two got by him- although one the announceers said was probably form him not catching this pitcher before- as he has a slider that just drops.... but he just threw the ball behind him AGAIN going after a basestealer. I had already seen someone mention he did that once- so that was his 2ND backwards throw??? Maybe the reports of his inadequacy behind the plate were for good reason.

House is catching for the International League All Stars.

Thanks for posting, I missed the starting line-ups and did not realize he was playing as I was switching back and forth between watching the nightly media wrestling craze.

After watching him for just a couple of minuetes I have nothing but straight out anger that he is not on the team. Even though the ball slipped out of his hand , he made a nice block and looks like he has an arm with the way he throws the ball back to the pitcher with a little juice. Maybe he just is not accurate, or he is throwing his hardest back to the pitcher.

BTW, That stadium they are playing in is really neat, I like the hill and the deep demensions, just a neat looking feild.

    • Yeah, basically this, that Westburg's underlying numbers (EV, barrel %, xwOBA) seem to point at this being pretty real, or at least that there's nothing 'undeserved / lucky' about this hot streak, if it's just that. 
    • 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.
