Are the Orioles your #1 team overall?

Recommended Posts

College football is my favorite sport, so the O's don't make or break my sports year quite as much as a couple other teams, but I do have the O's in my blood. I look for baseball rumors all off season and I never miss an O's game. This board is amazingly active considering what time of year it is. I'm happy to have run into some others who seem to have the Orioles on their mind each day.

I love the Orioles but I love the Ravens just as much. With that said I care far more about how the Ravens perform then the Orioles. That is because I think I have become numb to the losing after 11 years, I dont really expect us to win so I cant really be that disappointed.

So I have to say right now the Ravens are my number one team, That takes nothing away from the Orioles, I will be a Oriole fan until the day I die its just a by product of over a decade of losing.

They used to be at one point. But, I find myself watching less and less Orioles. Still a big fan, but once august gets here, my attention switches to football. They are number 3 in my book, behind Penn State and the Indianapolis Colts. They are all close together though. I wouldn't be posting here if I still weren't a big fan.

1) Orioles

2) Ravens

3) University of Delaware collegiate sports

4) University of Maryland collegiate sports

Other than that, I don't follow any other teams.

I am a diehard baseball fan, having it played it for so long, and I will always follow the Orioles, but the Ravens are growing on me, but I dont follow them very closely. I couldnt name more than 10 players on the team, whereas I could name the entire 40 man roster of the Orioles off the top of my head.

Neck and neck between the Skins and O's for me.

It's interesting though, usually by mid-August I can't wait for football season and I'm sick of the O's yearly tailspin.

Then again, usually right around this time of year I'm disgusted by the Redskins and can't wait for spring training to start.

It's a vicious circle :)

I would have to say that the Orioles are definitely my number one team. As weird as it is to say, I think it does have a little to do with their lack of success also. I WANT to see them succeed so bad that I hinge on every off season move, every trade, every game up to a certain point. My other teams for the most part are pretty successful if not extremely, so I'm used to seeing them win, I just crave a good Orioles team so bad now, its not even funny.

1. Orioles

2. Carolina Panthers

3. UNC Tarheels in everything

4, Charlotte Bobcats

That sums me up perfectly as well Moose.

Ain't it the truth. Zorn's personal vendetta against Portis cost them the game against the Bengals...who gives Sellers the ball twice in a row on the 1 over Portis unless he's just miffed cause of the media circus during the week?

I hate the Redskins.

That being said, I would trade the 1991 Skins Super Bowl victory for an Orioles World Series victory in my lifetime anyday.

    • Craig Biggio made a career out of getting hit by pitches (that and hitting :).  It can be a repeatable skill, although a painful and risky one.   Might not be able to get away with it as much now as you used to be able to.  
    • FWIW the BTV site is already forecasting the 17 year old to attain a few million in surplus value - that's a decent chunk for them for someone still in the complexes. Granted here we are in the part of the curve tapering to zero, and most of these guys will become nothing at the MLB level. Among guys ranked both by Tony and BTV as of today, their algorithm is stronger on Arias, Prieto, Haskin and McDermott.    Tony's ranks stronger on Basallo, Hernaiz, Denoyer and Tavera. Inside the Top 10 it almost all matches except for the College-High School classic Cowser and Mayo who in both systems have Westburg and Ortiz between them.     The 10th and final spot is Kjerstad-Beavers, but both rankers have the other one as basically the next guy.
    • The countdown is on - 1 hr until game time!  USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA  Will be curious to see the ratings today.  USA v. England had 15mm tune-in which was the most watched soccer game in US history.  
    • Curious..............do you think Goff or Jimmy G would be an upgrade over Lamar for this team?   Or are you just saying they are acceptable placeholders.
    • Lamar will more than likely be tagged and dealt. If you can get a return similar to Watson you can improve fast. Plus you can pick up Garapolo who is on a 1 year deal or Goff. 
    • We disagree.  Disparage his performance all you want but he was out there per MLB for the years he was signed for.  Fact is he provided much value to the clubs who disagreed not once but twice with you (Seattle AND Twins) while your approach removed his crucial bat ( and let Markakis walk too)  from the 2014 ALCS team that was replaced with ????? Travis Snider .   I remain steadfast in believing not giving Cruz an additional year was nowhere near the risk incurred  by the other poor choices made that offseason.  And the results were as expected when the team had these critical resources removed and not replaced much less upgraded. 
    • The stats would strongly indicate otherwise, but it seems like they still like Maikol Hernandez. I wonder if that's just because of the obvious - his bonus - and they don't want to give up on him or if there's something they're seeing in BP or whatever that isn't translating yet.
