Great Days in BirdLand

Recommended Posts

While flipping back and forth Monday night between the O's and Ravens games I was curious when the last time that both teams won on the same day so I did a little research*.

The two teams have played regular season games on the same day 27 times since the Ravens came to Baltimore in 1996. Both teams have won on the same day 10 times, and prior to Monday it had not been done since 2007.

Oddly enough on Sept 30, 2001 the Ravens defeated the Broncos and the O's played to a 1-1 tie with the Yankees. Does any one recall this tie game?

Here is a breakdown of the Wins on the same day:

9/13/98

9/26/99

9/24/00

10/1/00

9/14/03

9/26/04

10/2/05

9/17/06

9/16/07

9/13/10

I not only recall it, I recapped it!

It was at Yankee Stadium and was scheduled to be the last game of Cal Ripken's career, so tons of people paid big money for tickets...but then 9/11 happened, and a week of games was postponed and shifted to the end of the season, so this was just his last road game. And he went 0-for-7.

Does anyone remember the O's and Yankees on June 23, 1964 that the O's were trailing 7-2 in the 8th inning and the O's erupted for 7 runs to go ahead 9-7 and won 9-8?   One of my childhood most exciting game. The O's were in a 3 team race with the Yankees and the White Sox for first place.

Yes, I remember the game.

I was an Oriole fan living in the Albany, NY area at the time.  One of the local TV stations, which normally carried Yankees games on Sunday, decided to pick up  five or six weeknight telecasts of Yankees games.  This was the first of them.  I didn't get to see the Orioles very often, so this was a real treat for me.

I was ecstatic beyond words when the Orioles had that comeback from so far behind. 

I remember trying to figure out who the winning pitcher was, and finally realizing it was Chuck Estrada, who was trying (not very successfully) to recover the promise he had shown in his first couple of seasons in Baltimore.  He gave up three runs in three innings, but was still the pitcher of record when the Orioles mounted their rally.

That was the last game Estrada would win in an Oriole uniform.

    • Do we know what his velocity was today? I know he doesn't light up the gun but was he at his normal? 
    • Longterm he’s probably that missing RH SU/MR that we’ve been looking for since the Fuji trade.  It’s probably Suarez vs Ramírez vs Tate for 1-2 bullpen spots. Wells and one of Irvin/Means could be in the bullpen mix as well.  Depth is good to have. I wouldn’t sleep on Ramirez either. Elias has shown a knack from adding relievers through trade or waivers. 
    • There's not a single high level prospect on the team he pitched against tonight and even the one out he got was crushed
    • Let’s tap the brakes on his move to the bullpen. His stuff plays and he can get outs. Best of all, he doesn’t walk anyone. He challenges hitters and gets weak contact. With our defense, I’d rather him give up the occasional double or flared hit to the outfield than to see walks. Keep him in the starting rotation until he proves he doesn’t belong. Wells and Irvin both have experience in the pen and frankly for Irvin, though I love him, has a real tough time throwing strikes at times.    anyway, let’s see what the old dog can do.
    • I could see Suarez sticking in a bullpen role long term with the movement on his fastball. Also he might be able to throw a 2 to 3 more MPH harder not having to worry about trying to pitch six innings. The Orioles have done a good job finding pitchers who weren't expected to do much in recent years and it would be cool if Suarez is another find.
    • I mean, heres where we really find out if Holliday is cut out for the majors and if he has the character to fight through major adversity right off the bat right?  Saw a good point that there was a guy previously that started 4 of 55, and that was ole #8.  Mike Trout didnt get his batting average up to .200 until May 31st of his first season.  Ideal? Absolutely not.  But when the franchises all-time hits leader started with the same slump its something to pay attention to.
    • Going 1 for 25 is not hard to do. I would imagine many HS Senior players could do that if given 25 at bats in the big leagues. Not saying Holliday is not worthy, just how bad going 1 for 25 is. Had someone not been on 1st, he could be 0 for 25. I would like to see him more aggressive early in the count and more protective late in the count.
