    Not really, but you have to respect a streak/potential streak. They have some good players, of course, but the Sox are better.

    Also, like the A's, the O's have a second mascot: a horse's ass in this case. Let's not lose the series opener to Bucky and his boys.

    For those of you hoping that one of our mighty catchers will carry the offense today, our options are a collective 0 for 26 against the O's starting pitcher, Gausman. Vaz 0 for 13, Leon 0 for 8, Swihart 0 for 5. So Cora can't go wrong...they're all due!

    Do we still get that nice Orioles troll these days?

    I like him. He would be fun to kick around a bit.

    I'm escorting the graduate-to-be to the park this evening. My first visit to Fenway this century. "Where do you want to sit?" he texts while checking stubhub. "Anything's better than my usual standing room." she replies. Dad's got this.

    You actually think that guy would show up when the Red Sox are 29 and 14 and the Orioles are 13 and 29?

    the Orioles won 3/4 at Yankee stadium early in the season. They have literally lost every single other road game they've played so far.

    that scares me because they are due to run well on the road while we're scuffling. prove me wrong please.

    The guy will not move JDM to the 3 hole, will he? Best hitter in baseball not hitting first, second or third. I actually didn't look through a bunch of box scores to verify that, but he has to be.

    Because I'm too dumb to wrestle with tables on this website, here's a picture of a table. JD is 12th among batters not hitting 1-3 with a minimum of 75 PA.
    [​IMG]

    8th if you sort by wRC+ [​IMG]

    so that I don't have to upload another image, if you drop the minimum PA to 30, JD has the best average in baseball in the 3 spot (41 PA).

    Unmotivated question for the cognoscenti: how does JDM hit when he's in the field vs. when he's DH?

    You must mean dropping games played to 30?

    JD at .344 with 12 HRs now in 41 games. Cora on cloud fucking nine batting Hanley ahead of this guy. It was dumb out of spring training, now it’s hard to even fathom what’s going on. Seems like he doesn’t want to admit he was wrong and is just being stubborn now. Or maybe he doesn’t want to confront Hanley.

    Nah, he only has 41 PA in the 3-hole. The rest of the time he's been cleanup. I only suggested dropping the PA cutoff to 41 so that JDM would appear in my search.

    Cloud fucking nine? You really think Cora is that excited about it?

    So, I guess the umpires at the beginning of a series have to go through the ground rules. But it looked like Buck was asking questions. Hasn't he heard about this shit forever. Ball hits to the left of the yellow line, and goes into the stands or bullpen it's a fucking home run. That's the only complicated one.
