Ump is on the take.

K this bum!
Win #9 for our Birds!
Nice comeback when many thought they didn't have a chance.
Day off tomorrow
Wieters should rest Tuesday also, seeing how he played in a day game after a night game.
The Orioles are going to win 90 games and Albert Pujols will hit no home runs with 41 RBI (but he will have 71 doubles) this season.
Chen might be a pitcher.
anyone want to take bets on weenie's other ID on this board?
Chen is pitching exactly how I thought he would. It will be interesting to see how he responds in July/Aug, when the league has seen more of him.
Right now, he looks like Matusz did in 2010.
Watched it on MLB tv after the fact, what nail biter of a game. Even thought they only went 1-2 in Anaheim, they went 6-4 on the road trip overall.
1) In Duquette's first four months on the job (arguably a rather limited sample for both the supporters and critics to dissect, yet the critics show no restraint in that regard unless it benefits them in denigrating the other side) he added depth as well as two apparently viable starters to help stabilize the biggest weakness on the team (starting pitching).
2) In Boston, Duquette established much of the foundation that led to the 2 championships.
There is still much uncertainty as to whether Duquette will pan out but I just don't get how so many of the naysayers can rush to classify him as a loser so soon. Your prior comments were interpreted by me to follow that rush.
The Robinsons, Cal, Palmer, Boog, Cuellar, McNally, etc. should be frustrated to see guys like Hoiles and Bordick included in their club.
But that's another issue. My point was a simple one. I find it unreasonably premature for people to condemn the new GM after 120 days on the job. They, and I, have come to perhaps expect failure but unlike the others, I still look for signs of hope each spring and I choose not to live in constant negativity. I remember '66, '79 and '89 when no one expected the O's to do what they accomplished. I doubt '12 will be ultimately successful but I do think a pitcher or two will establish themselves to soldify the rotation in advance of the hoped for flurry of prospect additions in '13 and beyond.
We are all tired of the losing but I'll embrace any signs of hope I find. Get it? If not, please at least stop beating your kids/dogs!
