Orioles 2021

Recommended Posts

O's up 7-2 in the 7th. It was getting scary there with Tate loading the bases but Scott saved the day. 

It's never over. There's never enough runs because of the pitching. 

Mullins is having an incredible game. Triple, stolen base and one incredible diving catch at the wall.

Really fun game tonight.

7-4 O's in the 8th and Valdez is not looking too good. Crazy wild pick off throw to 1st and luckily they caught the runner in a run down.

O's are now 3 outs away from ending their streak.

It's really hard to single out anybody. Mullins is simply incredible.

BALTIMORE -- Miserable in May, the rebuilding Orioles are looking like a juggernaut in June, seemingly as hot as the current Baltimore-area heat spell.

The latest example came Tuesday, when the Orioles followed their 18-run Sunday outburst with a 10-3 thrashing of the Mets at Oriole Park. The win was their fifth in six tries this month, after going 5-23 in May.

“That,” second baseman Pat Valaika said, “is how we would like to play every day.”... It’s foundation was a deluge of doubles -- seven total hit by Orioles batters, tied for their third most in a single game in club history.....Franco’s homer was only the sixth to reach the second deck in Oriole Park history, according to the team, and third by an Oriole.....This team, they scored 18 runs the day before yesterday, and they just came out of the chute swinging the same way,” Mets manager Luis Rojas said...Pat Valaika, Maikel Franco lead Orioles to win (mlb.com)

Of course, the actual difference in the game was their own doing. Cleveland’s fourth run came in a sixth inning that began with an error on first baseman Ryan Mountcastle, putting leadoff man César Hernández on, a passed ball against Pedro Severino moving him to second, and a dropped foul ball by second baseman Stevie Wilkerson, extending the at-bat that ended in a run-scoring double by José Ramírez.

“The bottom line is we just didn’t play defense tonight, which, you’ve got to play defense in the big leagues to win,” Hyde said. “We made numerous plays that hurt us — or, didn’t make the plays.”

I'm going to the game Friday night with my son. First time there in 20 years,

Todays question.

My son told me the first 15,000 fans who show up Friday night will get a free Mullins Orioles T-shirt.

What time should we show up?

7-1. Win!

We got there around 6:15-6:30 and got the Mullins T-shirts (decent quality too) and of course Mullins hit a 1st inning lead off solo homer and a 3 run homer late in the game. The Yard looked great. Food was good. Fans were great. Family atmosphere. 

First time back since Cal's Iron Man record setting night...long time ago.

The jersey that I want is $357.00 !!!!!!! Somebody help me! Really....I can't believe that price.

Nice start to Fathers Day Weekend.

“What a great night for Cedric,” Hyde said. “The crowd was unbelievable tonight. That’s the most energy in the ballpark that I’ve seen here in three years, and I feel like our guys really fed off that. For the fans to recognize Ced and his great night, that was a super cool moment. That was a first for me here also, to have somebody recognized like that.”.....

His latter shot broke the game open, a three-run home run that ignited that crowd and led to a curtain call, which Mullins said was his first. “I was kind of nervous to go back out there, but it felt amazing,” Mullins said. “It was just a surreal moment.”....Cedric Mullins’ latest All-Star statement, Thomas Eshelman’s unexpected start lead Orioles past Blue Jays, 7-1, ending 8-game skid - Baltimore Sun

 

 Eshelman pitched a good game. Guerrero went hitless.

I think Mullins willbe on the trade block soon.  Not sure an investment now is a good idea.

 

During a rebuild, a team has to at some point start locking up players to build around. A solid core. Mullins definitely fills the bill. He makes the defense up the middle tight,. His bat speaks for itself. He's young, he's a spark plug for this team...he brings excitement and he brings fans to the stands. 

I know they need more bodies, more prospects and definitely pitching as evidenced by the 6 run 9th meltdown that ruined a great Orioles effort. Solid pitching and defense seem to be the best way to go.

But not at the cost of Mullins. I draw the line there. I will stop following this team if they keep trotting out guys who are trying to figure out how to play in the majors. It's getting old.
