Am I the only one who is tired of hearing about this? They didn't seem to mind benefiting from their torrential downpour aided rally against the O's earlier in the season. I didn't hear any Yankees complaining that that game should have been suspended earlier, especially considering conditions were much worse. God, everyday I hate the Yankees and their players more and more. Me thinks it's sour grapes because they are about to exit the playoffs in the first round for the third straight season.

Oh yeah and this just in, Big Stein says Torre's job is in jeopardy...AGAIN!!! I'm sure by now Torre is like just fire me already and cool it with the charade.

I liked George's comment about Froemming not umpiring any more MFY games.

" "He won't umpire our games anymore," Steinbrenner said. "

Uh, I think there is at least one more game to be played "King" George and to my knowledge Froemming and "friends" will be there.

That was the kicker for me. What a blowhard.

What kind of idiot puts that kind of ultimatum (Torre) on his team down in the playoffs?

Steinbrenner has zero control over who umpires his team's games.

Do you think George realizes that Froemming is about to retire?

They even had a ceremony for him at Yankee Stadium before an O's game in August.

Yeah, I think George realizes that but I think it was his arrogance talking more than anything else when he made the comment in the article.

To orioles119: .....I know that George has no control over the umpires but somebody had better tell him that.....

I sent an email to mike and mike this morning about how the Yanks didn't complain during the downpour game here...Here is the response i got from Bob "Yankee fan" Picozzi:

Hi, Rob.

Thanks for your email.

First of all…don’t you think there is a difference between the magnitude of a game in June and an ALDS game in October?

Secondly, besides Steinbrenner, who complained? Torre was asked if he felt Chamberlain was bothered by the bugs? What was Torre suppose to say. Lie and say “no.” Did Chamberlain look as focused to you in the 8th inning (with the bugs) as he did in the 7th (no bugs)?

Both teams had to play under the same conditions. But to suggest that Chamberlain was not bothered by them would be a little silly, don’t you think? I don’t think answering a question by saying “yes, I think he was bothered by them” is complaining. It’s just honestly answering a question.

    • Denyi Reyes signs with the Mets on a minor league deal.     https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2022/11/mets-sign-denyi-reyes-to-minor-league-deal.html
    • Thought this would be a good place to post Orioles related stuff.
    • Worley has been elevated to the roster in front of this game. I think a decision will need to be made after this game as I think that he used up the exemption 
    • You guys that are worrying about blocking guys crack me up. If you aren’t adding in free agency you aren’t trying to win now. Besides the Os don’t have 7 allstar ballplayers coming up in the next 2 or 3 year.
    • Going from Mullins to Kiermaier is a downgrade and there is no proof that Cowser has anywhere close to the range of Mullins.   Better to keep Mullins and sign a FA starter. Stowers and Cowser will push Santander and Hays for playing time  in the near future but not quite yet.    I like the depth they provide.   Did you see how injuries hit Tampa last year?
    • Yes, they can.  But could they improve more by downgrading somewhat in CF to get a pitcher who’s a better option than anyone available on the FA market, age, health, ability and cost all considered?   That’s the question.   I’m not saying the answer is clear, but that is what Elias & co. need to consider.   And it depends on what Mullins would bring back and what the alternatives are in CF.   Trade Mullins straight up for Lopez and sign Kiermaier until Cowser is ready?   I am not crazy about that one.  But there could be some similar scenario that works.  
    • There are many ways to improve.  In my opinion starting pitching is our greatest weakness.  If we can trade from our strengths, position players, to enhance our pitching staff, then do it if the right deal came along.  I'd be willing to part with about any position player on our mlb roster other than Adley and Gunnar.  If Mullins is our most valuable trade piece on the roster, then trade him for pitching.  I feel we have enough young talent coming up to replace his production in the lineup. Let's be clear, I'm not advocating a firesale or anything goofy. But with Westburg, Ortiz, Stowers, Cowser, etc all possibly seeing MLB time this year and hopefully outperforming who they replace in the lineup, and a full year of Gunnar and Adley, I expect the runs scored to increase even if we don't add bats from free agency.  But it's the arms that worry me as Grod only 1 starter and will be limited on pitches.  I'm ok with trading a position starter if we can get a worthwhile pitcher, and Mullins may be the best chip to play.   And given that I'm down on him repeating a 3.8 WAR season or better in 2023, he'd be at the top of my list.  We will get more for him than we would for a Hays, Mateo or Urias.
