Trembley's bullpen management was quite Perlozzo-esque tonight.

Horrible, simply horrible.

How - because he brought in people that FAILED?

Should he have let Mickolio stay out there after giving up two runs? Was bringing in Johnson in the top of the ninth a mistake?

Because a lot of managers would have done the exact same thing.

This whole damn team is an embarrassment. All that talent and they just lay dead when they play the Yanks and Sox.

This is probably the worst year they have had in the last 11 because they dont even compete with these guys. I am so disgusted with them.

You know i hate to agree with you Boggidown, but I gotta agree. This year is just getting worse and worse.

An impartial friend of mine (a Phillies fan actually) just went to an O's game last week. He came back to tell me how he was basically mystified that us Orioles fans think that Adam Jones & Nick Markakis are going to lead us to the promised land in a few years. I somewhat doubted his comment, but he backed it by saying, "you know, when you look at a lineup, there's usually a guy you as an opposing team think, 'oh crap, we need to pitch around this guy', however, there's not one hitter on that team that can hit a HR on 'command' like a Ryan Howard or a Pujols, or an A-rod."

Now, I explained to him how great of an all-around player both Nick and Adam are, but if we continue to trade proven guys away such as Sherrill who can hold the bullpen together as he's doing in LA, will we every truly compete? Our bullpen is now a joke: No good lefties out of the pen (if you think Hendrickson is decent, than you're just crazy), and who do we have tha can get guys out consistently without giving up a HR or a few runs on a normal night? Jim Johnson has been a nightmare in the 9th innings either in save situations OR when being put in when behind because we never win anymore or have a chance to win anymore.

I think we've been demoralized by good teams, and until Peter Angelos is out of there, and we have an owner willing to drop the cash for the bats and the arms, we're never truly going to compete. I really hope I'm wrong, but I used to watch every single game all summer long and into the fall months, but now, hell, I'd rather watch Desperate Housewives re-runs than watch us be one run down in the 7th or 8th and then give up a 6 spot in the top of the inning...being an Orioles fan is truly starting to wear on my emotions.

How many threads are you gonna repeat this bit of nonsense in?

If you just knew when to be quiet, your ignorance about baseball wouldn't be so obvious to everybody. But, no... you'll repeat it again and again until everybody has yet another reason to (a) know you don't know what you're talking about and (b) be annoyed that you're doing your standard Rain Main trick of just repeating the same dumb thing again and again. Instead of "DT sucks", why don't you just say "K-Mart sucks"?

I dont agree with you 100%. I think we have some really good guys but they just seem to not play up to their capabilities when they play the better teams (whereas in the past they did more so). Even last year I think they won the season series with the Yankees.

Why do they play so rotten this year? This is not a 100 loss team on paper.

Unfortunately, 100 losses DOES go on paper and makes us look like the laughing stock of baseball...we're becoming the KC Royals of the AL East.

    • Holy moley. 10 HR and 30 RBI… through April 19. 
    • I guess we were watching a different outing. 
    • You try to sign long term Gunnar and GR.  Wait and see on the others. As for Adley?   I would not sign him to a long term contract.  I hate to say it because I love the guy but he just does not seem worth what he is going to ask for imo.
    • I am not worried about Means AS LONG AS HE IS HEALTHY.   Big if.  But he knows what he is doing getting ready for what him is his spring training.  If he does this his first 2 starts or so?    Then I worry.
    • I had never seen him in a live at bat until I saw him at his first spring training at bat this year.  And I mean his very first at bat.   He struck out swinging on like 4 pitches and being honest looked completely over matched.  I remember thinking....."hmmmm that seems odd for a guy so highly touted".   He just seemed like he had no idea what he was doing.   But then I never really saw another live at bat from him again all spring training and he ended up doing pretty well.  However every at bat I have seen of him since he got called up?  Looked like that first spring training at bat.  He looks like my wife trying to hit a major league fastball.  He has no idea what he is doing. I have never seen someone so good against minor league players and yet so bad against major league players.  Just a huge discrepancy.   Has to be psychological.   He looks completely intimidated. 
    • And who is this somebody other than Means or Flarerty that would help us in the playoffs. Also remember Bradish and Grod did not help us in the Playoffs. So I guess It was unwise to wait on those 2. Plus Bradish is hurt and uncertain going foward( a la Means) Yeah you piled on.
    • I will say I am surprised at how utterly useless/helpless JH looks after he got called up.   Not just surprised. Stunned is a better word. This is not an 7th round pick who struggled for years in the minors.   This is the #1 pick from 2 years ago who has dominated his entire life in the game of baseball. Yet he looks like a player in 8th grade playing against seniors in HS.  He can barely make any contact and even his fielding and throwing is very iffy. It is like he took up the game of baseball within the last year.   A complete novice.   This has to be mental because even the worst of the worst can make more contact than he is.  He is FLAILING.   No way that is all physical.    At this point you send him down.   No questions asked.   I was more than willing to let him get through this if he SHOWED ANY SIGNS of life.  But he just doesn't.   He looks pathetic.    Manny Machado he is not.   Send him down for at least 3 months.   Bring up Mayo.  Or anyone really.  It is better than what he is offering.
