The Plight of the 2021 Baltimore Orioles


Recommended Posts

A good win today,, kind of liking this team, bu damn if i don't want to see some consistency. I don't think they are the 100 game losers they are made out to be. they won't challenge, but they might be more fun to watch this year than we thought

 

Question:
What is that Cedric Mullins wears on his thumb when he bats? Like a plastic ring with a large tab?
Never saw one of those before.

I know it would've negatively impacted the O's this game, at least so it said online, but MLB should allow the runner on first to score on a ground rule double when there are two outs. It just punishes the offense for no particular reason.

Keystone cops defense for the As today and we are taking advantage. 
 

Great win last night too Lopez getting out of a jam to earn the save 

 

6 runs in the third ... I count three Es for the As and two passed balls ... finally over now but a crazy inning

I thought he had a perfect game but I missed the base runner reaching on a wild pitch strikeout. He was caught stealing so he only faced 27 batters

Mussina was close a bunch of times. 
 

Bedard had a one hitter... and had a game where he begged out  while he had a no hitter going. 
 

Hammel was close. Bundy was close. 
 

Daniel Cabrera (remember him?!) was close a couple times.

Amazing! I checked in after 7 innings and decided to not look until now. Means is the real deal. Perhaps trade bait, but I'd like to keep him. He is still young enough to be a cornerstone.

Good for Means. He’s gonna get paid someday

Does anyone think the O’s would pay him?

Probably will ask him to defer his Arb-1 salary next year out another 5 years or so, tbh.

Just pay the dude. You don't build good teams by trading and/or not re-signing all your good young players. Eventually gotta keep a few.


They should but they aren’t gonna give out big contracts

Why not? I haven't paid attention to the front office in a while, is Angelos still calling shots? Are they absolutely against paying players? I'm not sure what Elias' game plan is.

Ray Miller passes away, and hours later an Orioles pitcher throws a no-hitter. Ain’t that something. 
 

Work Fast. Change Speeds. Throw  strikes.
 

RIP Rabbit.

That’s sad to hear.  I would have never guessed he was only 76.  I remember having his baseball card when he was the Twins manager.
