Conforto's catch in the 6th or 7th led to that loss. I think it was 6-5 and Ruiz nearly cleared the bases with 2 outs...oh well. 

 

Yea, that was a game-saving catch. That ball tried to come out of his glove twice. Just wasn't meant to be, I guess!

Just when you thought the Yankees were going down and the Orioles might have a chance to surpass them, they have to go ahead and play a 4 game set in NYC.

 

Kremer looked good yesterday after the Orioles got destroyed in games 1 and 2.  Still, had to have at least had a split in this series.

Stewart with a three-run homer, now  Mountcastle follows up with a solo shot of his own. 5-0 Os.

 

Future is looking bright.   Inside of two months our outfield went from a question mark outside of Santander to potentially have to cut/trade productive players next year.

Wow, really put a pounding on them now, Mullins single scores 2 followed by Iglesias 3-run shot

 

10-0.  

 

Buy or sell - if we played in the NL East this year we would have made the playoffs.

 

I'd buy that.  

 

The Braves pitching has been bad, though some of that is due to injuries.  Our offense has been respectable, but prone to go into cold streaks for a few games at a time.  But trade games against the Yankees and Rays for games against the Braves and Phillies or Braves and Miami and we'd have fared better.  

 

Tonight was a really fun game.  Hope they saved some runs for games 2 and 3 against Atlanta.

Another great outing from Akin and solid bullpen.  Nice win.

 

Alberto at 3B - didn't catch the whole game so not sure how he played, though he did turn a double play.   It looks like they are getting read to move on from Ruiz.

Certainly didn't think we'd go 25-35 in a short season.  Reasonably pleased with the season.

 

There's some reason for hope headed into 2021.  There are some players here who look like they could help get this franchise back to winning.

25-35 is really not that bad. I’m this wacky season, they were a healthy Means and Mancini away from possibly being one of the playoff teams. Ah well. 

 

I agree, they didn't miss by a whole lot.  And Means really came on strong down the stretch.

 

**** man, if they had the nerve to cut Davis and had a healthy Mancini and Mountcastle from Game 1, I think they could have been closer than they were.

Ironically the team had a better record when Davis was in the lineup.

It's bad when, what would be projected to be a 68 win team, is seen as "really not that bad."

CD won't be cut until they know how salaries are impacted next season due to covid. They will look to save money first. If it's a normal season and all players get full salaries, I expect him to be gone.

I think you're right.  But at this point I don't see how they don't play a full 162 next year without fans, or sparse fans throughout the park.  

 

That's what I am hoping for, anyway...because it means more baseball, also the likelihood that Davis is gone as you've pointed out.  With Mancini hopefully coming back and Mountcastle, there's no room.

I'll be pleasantly surprised if spring training is like normal, but I do think they will play a full slate of games. For a normal O's home game, the few fans they get should be workable. If we are still having games without fans, we are in a bad place with the pandemic.

Agreed on all points.  I don't think they have a regular ST, either.  I still think sporting events are limited for fans next year but I'd love to be wrong.
