I may have to listen to / Gameday the Tides game tonight... even here in Tennessee, a time zone closer to Orioles game, it's starting too late for me on a worknight.

Gameday is showing the Tides and Arrieta facing Jeffrey Marquez. If his stats are accurate (1-6, 9.09 ERA) it could be T-ball time for the Tides tonight. :eektf:

And I wasn't kidding about T-ball time for the Tides off of Marquez. 1st inning: 4 runs, 4 hits. Highlights: Tides load the bases off singles by Gathright & Christian, and Fiorentino walking to load 'em up. Aubrey sac flied in the first run, Brandon Snyder had a nice 2 RBI single, and before the close of the inning, Justin Turner doubled him home.

Looks like a long night ahead for the Charlotte fans at the ballpark. :rofl:

Matusz just gave up a hit that was described on radio as "a perfectly placed one between the 3rd baseman and the SS". He then got the next hitter to ground into a double play and got the 3rd out on a K.

Matusz allowed a hit to lead off the top of the fourth. The ball sneaked past a diving Mike Costanzo and off the glove of Cesar Izturis, who went deep into the hole to make a play. Despite a few grumbles around the park, the play was correctly ruled a hit.

By the way, 45 pitches, 38 strikes through four.

    • I agree with this. You also wonder if he hurt himself with the whole Toronto thing.  The relationship in Baltimore obviously changed after that. I just wonder if it hurt him elsewhere too, not that he would be the first executive to consider going elsewhere for a promotion.
    • Yeah I just think he's a super interesting guy. Much like his time with the Red Sox, he's a divisive guy who had moments of greatness mixed with moments of not.  The same guy signed Chen, but got himself blacklisted in S. Korea. The same guy turned Miguel Gonzalez and Jason Hammel into very good pitchers, but couldn't get basically any pitching prospect to pop. Just an interesting, mixed body of work. 
    • I see Duquette as a mixed bag, neither all good nor all bad.  I do find it interesting that, despite having some success in his various stops, he went 9 years without a job in MLB after Boston fired him, and he’s been unable to land another position in the 4+ years since being fired by the Orioles.  That suggests he’s not the easiest guy to work with, regardless of whatever other merits he has.  At this point, I think time probably has passed him by.   
    • Oh right, I do remember that. Few things:   1) Britton was injured that year and was going to be expensive the next year, so the value was only so high. 2) We have no idea who else was in the trade. Just because players aren’t/weren’t top 100 guys doesn’t mean they don’t end up being very good players. What if Cristian Javier was a guy they identified (not even sure if he was in the org at that time but the point remains the same)?   
    • An epic derail one post into the thread. Some fans cannot get over their Chris Davis hangup.  Feel bad for @wildcard who had a nice original point that there are a lot of players **on the 40-man roster** (i.e.: not Chris Davis) Elias did NOT jettison simply because they weren't "his" guys. 
    • Had an offer on the table from Hou that had Colin Moran as a headliner.  Was nixed because of medical issues.  https://www.camdenchat.com/2017/8/31/16234234/orioles-trade-rumors-zach-britton-astros-colin-moran
    • DD did some good things, as for the rest of this thread, sheesh, has Spring Training started yet?
