That's what i'm thinking... I hope he's alright, my goodness.

Good for him, he's protecting his team and player there, and I like that. As Palmer mentioned, there wasn't any profanity or insulting of the ump, he just didn't agree with the call.

You get the feeling a LOT of frustration was boiled up in DT and he just let it all out there.

"You know me, I don't say anything. You messed that up, you're telling me my guy didn't run hard."

Agreed. He seemed like he needed to vent.

I'm not sure if he should score or not.

Its not where he is at the time the ball goes out of play. Its where he is at the time of the throw. Can't tell from the camera angle where Nolan was at the actual time of the throw.

Not saying you're wrong, I just don't know how that makes sense. He's going to take 2b on the hit, it shouldn't matter where he is in relation to 2b when the throw is made.

Because that's the rule. Until you touch 2nd base, you're on 1st base. Its irrelevant where you are going, just what the last base you've touched is.

A lot of times you'll hear parents and coaches incorrectly say the rule is "the base you're going to and one more". I think that's what you're thinking along the lines of. But that's not the rule.

One thing I have noticed about Guthrie in early innings. Seems to me as if many starters will try to establish one, maybe two pitches the first time through the lineup. Maybe a fastball and a curve. However, Guthrie seems to show all of his pitches right away... fastball, curve, change, even a slider.

I'm just wondering...

    • 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.
