    Save us, Elias, you're our only hope - The 2019 Orioles

    I think they should move CD to the bullpen. They're in desperate need of arms and that way he doesn't have to hit. Sounds like a win-win to me. Make him earn at least a little of that salary he's getting. He can hardly do worse than some of those guys out there.

    Does anybody know where I can get a sub with torpedoes? Asking for a friend...

    If everyone keeps touting the work Kyle is doing, Bruce is going to run him out of town. Just sayin...

    Wow, that was close to an epic meltdown by the Os. Givens redeemed himself a bit, but that win was thanks to Severino. 3 dongs and throwing out the last runner at first after the wild pitch by Givens. Heck of a game young man.

    Unreal. Look like they are trying hard for the #1 pick next year as well. Mancini looks like he’s playing his way off this train wreck. I’ll be sad to see him go.

    Geeze Givens, really? O's fight back from 5-1 to tie it and you walk in the go-ahead run in the top of the ninth. Wow.

    See this is what I don't get about the majors. I played baseball up through college and then coached my sons teams when they were growing up. We harped on this stuff all the time. Situational baseball and thinking about what you're going to do if/when the ball is hit to you. People act like these guys haven't played baseball and need to be taught, but these guys have been playing since they were young. They should know by now where to throw and when, etc. It's not like baseball changes significantly when you get to the majors. Just more of the same but faster and better. If someone shows up to the majors and doesn't know whent to throw it and where, I'd argue they'll never get it.

    Just enjoying this team's fight. You can tell they try and they care. Last year felt like the team was just going through the motions. The young guys on the team are hungry and you can tell. Obviously they'll lose a lot of games but as long as they fight I'm good with it.

    Ugly AB by Davis in the 8th. The streak is alive another day. I don’t understand his approach. He watches the first 2 strikes, a change up and fastball both right down the middle. Then the pitcher throws crap and gets him to chase. He gets to 0-2 and he might as well walk back to the dugout.

    Yeah was at Culver’s and they had the Yankees on. Did a split screen when Davis came up to bat. Pretty sad. And now 0-3 with another good swing but right at the outfielder.

    Davis is 2 outs from tying and 3 outs from breaking the futility record. Might have his name immortalized. You’ll have the Mendoza line and the Davis streak.

    Not too impressive of a start for Straily. Hopefully just a good day for the Yankees and he comes back strong.

    Gotta wonder how much pressure it will put on him. Wouldn’t you maybe just try to bunt to break the streak? Will he though?
