  1. Part of me agrees with Earl Weaver. Firmly against beanballs and throwing at other players. I forget the anecdote, but one of his pitchers started something and he said something like "Look at Eddie Murray. Do they have anyone as good as Eddie Murray?" The pitcher said no... So Weaver said something like "Then don't throw at their guys because they're gonna throw at Eddie!" But then another part of me thinks that Don Drysdale had it right. Hit one of my guys, I'm hitting two of yours. I guess I'm trying to say I don't want anyone on the Orioles starting anything, but man if anyone starts some **** I don't want anyone on this team sitting back and not doing anything. And I don't even mind head hunting and knockdowns if that's what it takes for us to retaliate. Hopefully this doesn't go all season.
  2. Gausman sucked today...for the first half inning. Regained some composure. I don't think he's terrible, I also don't think he's that special. At this point, he is what he is, which is a #3 starter with electric stuff. He'll dazzle some nights, once in awhile he'll provide a **** start but mostly it'll be 6 innings of 4 runs, not throwing a lot of strikes and having a high pitch count so he can't work deeper.
  3. Hey, I said it was my guess That was pathetic.
  4. Gausman is getting worse, not better. Gentry's a better defender, is my guess.
  5. The Founder. Michael Keaton playing Ray Kroc. Nick Offerman is great as one of the McDonald's brothers, the other guy that plays his brother is great, too. From what I can tell, historically accurate movie. Everything I've read on Wiki and other sites has it all going down the same way. Keaton is great as Kroc, and if you're a sucker for period pieces like I am, you'll love the 50s feel. Great job on explaining how McDonald's came to be.
  6. Charles Barkley, making it awkward for everyone. Hilarious.
  7. I did literally laugh out loud at this. Well done.
  8. Well on their best day the defense is average. If the offense sucks like it does today, there's no hope.
  9. Whenever I hear the name Millsap I think of that soft band leader from Chappelle's Block Party. Anyone else?
  10. Get it to 10 or under by the half and there might be a chance. And find a way to fix Beal.
  11. That ****ing asshole Schoeder just walks up and hits a three? Come on.
  12. Stop shooting, Beal. Just stop.
  13. I don't disagree with that. the other post is right, it's pretty much Wall vs. the Hawks.
  14. Wall hasn't been the issue, Beal was looking like hot garbage.
  15. ****ing Dunleavy are you kidding me?
