I thought he got all of it. Looked like a Grand Slam off the bat!

Agreed. I thought it was forgone when I heard the crack of the bat. 

 

Stll happy about that inning though.

Ruiz tagged trying to advance... baserunning has been really aggressive.   I recall Nunez and Santander stretched singles into doubles the past few games, and being lucky because the throw wasn't good.

I like Santander but his OBP is dreadful. He's been clutch but gotta be better in that department to take the next step. 

 

Hersh!  Remember this?

Don’t know if there was a new O’s thread but I’ve now entered the same stage with the O’s that I’ve been at with the Skins. I just don’t care anymore and won’t be watching. I didn’t like that they tanked last year but I understood. To keep tanking is not something I’m interested in spending any time on at all. 

 

And then I said:

No, you won't. Same thing happened to me with the Redskins. 

 

I don't mind rebuilding, but I'm no fan of sports teams spending multiple years tanking. A one year reset following the disaster of 2018, totally understandable. I don't even expect winning, just not tanking again. They are going to continue to slash payroll and trade players. The pipeline is strong now, there is no need for a full tank job. BTW, Elias is living in a fantasy world with his stated desire of never having to do a sell-off again cause the minors will always be strong. It's not a realistic view to have and no team is capable of that unless you spend like the Yankees spend. The O's won't ever do that. 

 

Just when you thought you were out, they pulled you back in!!!

is it just me? I like McDonald in the booth better than Palmer.

I like McDonald a lot, not more than Palmer but just different.  It's two different styles.   Palmer is hilarious and he's so full of himself which is ok because he's...Jim Palmer and he can be.  McDonald is just real down to earth and easygoing.  Love 'em both for different reasons.  Hopefully next year they can be in the booth together, that'd be great.

Speaking of names that aren’t “strong enough”...Orioles?!?

 

Seems pretty soft to me.

 

Not as soft as "the wizards".  I mean, Orioles actually exist.

 

Better than Sea Dogs, though.

I haven't watched a game but good try. I hate Elias. I pay attention some online. This is how it was with the Skins. Never watched games but still followed some. Hatred of them grew.

What'd Elias ever do to you?

The tanking. He doesn't actually want this team to win at this point and he won't deviate from his plan which is to stock up the lower levels of the minors. Given the team is having success, why would you keep playing CD and not have Mountcastle in this lineup? There isn't a good reason other than he doesn't care to win now. He will trade away Givens and Cobb if the deals are right rather than make a run at the post season. Next year will be the same. 

Multi-year tanking is one of the worst things to happen in modern day sports.
