  1. Thanks Crav, glad to be back. How long have you been in FL? I was in Orlando w/wife, daughter for spring break; BRRRRrrrr!

  3. Oh well, I did it again... sorry! anyway, back again. Not gonna explain this one, just happy the sight is still up; thanks for the reminder emails welcoming me back. Go Ravens!
  4. And he's the winner! And, who 'cares about character' when he's an obvious fit for the rehab-locker-room of Lewis-Reed, so sayeth Michael Irvin? Anyway I like the pick by need, then by talent, then by attitude. He kinda fits all around.
  5. I like the Jimmy Smith pick; also it might karma-wise counter-act some years of getting burned by the Jax receiver of the same name.
  6. I'd like to think that the next two weeks will tell us what we need to know about this team, but even then it's early. I just worry about the bottom of the rotation; who's going to be able to round out the rotation? And Gregg scares me a bit.
  7. No long stretch run through a gauntlet of playoff-caliber teams; that is pretty big IMO. The schedule is ranked as weak based on last year's records, although really you never know in the NFL how that translates year to year. I would expect SD to be better than last year, and probably the whole NFC west also will improve. And still dealing with Indy and the Jets, I'd say the ravens will have plenty on their plate to keep them on edge.
  8. It is good to see Vlad and Lee going deep, we need that to offer the protection to the others behind them; our rotation is still challenged until Guthrie and Matusz are back. but I'm hoping the o's can pull this one out and move us to 5-1 before the Rangers come in, they kick our asses alot. Verlander and Penny have definitely made us look mediocre.
  9. Maybe Wilbon just missed the boat; really most reactions I've seen/heard were a la kornheiser's (pti but I hate that guy btw) and yeah, if you don't think about the last 3rd of last season, the 4-game start is certainly an anomaly worthy of disdain. but for those who've watched, it's a continuation, really an actualization, of the mission Buck set forth on his arrival. I've only heard, other than positives, casual non-acknowledgements of the start, keeping the O's in the continual "unsatisfactory" column. but most pundits appear to be looking asmirk and an eye-brow raised at the seemingly upstart orioles.
  10. The pitchers are feeding off each other. The hitters are feeding off each other. The fielders are fielding for each other. Goodness abounds. btw Wieters is doing well!

    Charlie

    Dudes, whatever; he was great in Good Advice, and Hot shots. and those were some of his shitty roles. Who cares if he's a screwball, his father had a friggin heart attack during the filming of Apocalypse Now and yeah sometimes you get some kooks in film and tv. whatever. he's a product of hollywood. take it as is.
  12. I hear ya; I guess Reimold's not far. Not sure what we have left to come in if Guthrie's lost, but either Buck's not concerned or keeping his ace in the hole, judging by the post-game interview; he had poker face.
  13. Another nice win; aggressive solid pitching; timely hitting (BRobs!); the formula working again. The press conferences show a team in control, players not saying too much; Buck showed a cool hand saying he'd give his team time to transition to home territory, meaning managing the physical move to homes in the area. Classy move and this guy has the good way of dealing with media. Hopefully Guthrie will pass for Wednesday, but you get the feeling they can manage if he can't. It will be interesting to see what happens in the next 24 hours, but for now it has been fun. various pundits on radio/tv are waffling on whether to give the O's credit. But I did hear Ken R. on MLB network giving the O's some love (statistically) pointing back to Showalter's joining the team, saying this is his influence. fair enough!
  14. This was a great way to start the year; obviously way too early, but the "good starting pitching, solid defense, timely hitting" mantra is exactly what we had. Except that sometimes the pitching, or defense were even great; the hitting of course was ultimately timely. I was impressed with Reynolds and Hardy on both sides of the coin; it seems like the infield has already gelled, and the pitchers are feeding off of each other. Uehara looked good too. They gave up 3 runs and 12 hits this series. How many times in recent years have they given away more runs and hits than that in ONE game? too many. If Britton can hold it together under pressure and deliver like that, things are looking up for this team's confidence and unity. ...aaaaaand, that was against a team, with some pitchers and hitters, that have had our number in the recent past. Good to have a 'tone-setter' for the season. ...AAAAAAaaaaaaaaaand, Wieters has looked nice!
  15. Guthrie had a great start, 8 shutout innings, changed speeds well, pretty confident against a 'stacked' lineup; then Johnson gives up the 1st pitch dinger. jeesh. anyway nice clutch hitting, good for Markakis and Roberts to get set, as well for Guerrero and Hardy. good defense. Overall I like the way the pitching handled longoria, manny, etc. for TB, good win.
