I'm so ready for baseball season to start. since my Redskins blew another year, I can only hope the O's make up for it.
I have to say that Peter Angelos needs to go. He's done nothing for the Orioles, and probably will continue to do nothing. We need decent pitchers to start and finish, and also need some heavy hitters.
I do have to admit that I was impressed with the young guys at the beginning of the season last year. They were able to give us some hope. Maybe this year, they can keep it together and start out strong, and finish stronger.

Hi all! I'm glad to read some baseball talk even though the season is over. I, too, would like to see the Os have a winning season and I'd especially like to see Brian Roberts come back strong and healthy!

From what I read and hear, the problem is Peter Angelos. I don't know if this is the whole truth, but it keeps coming up. I sure hope the new GM can stand up to him so that we can get some stellar pitching. It seems to me that is what the team needs the most.

We'll all have to keep reading the Orioles website and listen to the sports commentators. Let's keep our hopes high and our fingers crossed for the 2012 season! emoticon

Hopefully, Roberts will be well enough to bring in a Major league starter and a minor league reliever.

Great. The new GM hits it big with a backup catcher.

I know what you mean Connie. I have to look up today to see if the Brewers have every been in the world series I know they made it to the playoffs but did they go to the series. I love google because you can find anything. I remember when they were talking about the time the brewers went before. It was 82 and I had remembered they had beat the O's had to look that up to make sure. I was right. Going away next week but will be keeping up with it and watching in the evening. We are going to Vegas. Hope all is well for you. I've had a couple of set backs but thinking things are getting better.

I do believe both Leagues may play until the bitter end before we find out which ones are going on the World Series...
I'm not complaining, though, like to stretch out the baseball season as long as possible!

Thanks for posting, Nancy. I really didn't care for talking to myself!

My goodness! emoticon Except for the Ray's losing out in the ALDS, all of my favorite teams have ended up just where I wanted them to be at this point in the post season. Let's see, the Red Sox are gone, The Yankees are gone and the Phillies are gone. The teams that are left haven't won a World Series in a very long time or haven't won at all. In my opinion, that's the way it should be.

So, who will go to the World Series? I'm looking at the Rangers and the Brewers. However, I'll be happy with any match up as long as the A.L. ultimately wins! emoticon

I had a rough day yesterday, but was delirious with joy when I woke up this morning to learn that the Detroit Tigers had ELIMINATED the Yankees from the rest of the post season! I had watched the game into the 5th or 6th inning when the Tigers were ahead 2 -0, but then decided that my anxiety level wasn't going to help me calm down and go to sleep. So I turned off the game, changed to a documentary and went to bed. Woke up in the middle of the night wondering what the outcome of the game was but managed to doze off. I was afraid that if I checked the score and learned that the Yankees had won, I'd never get back to sleep emoticon
But I have to say, the New York Yankees have made me very happy, which is a rare occurrence indeed!

I am sorry that the Rays didn't make it this year; I really think they deserve a World Series win. However, whether the Tigers or the Rangers go to the Series, I'll be very, very happy!!!

Go Tigers, indeed! Maybe they can eliminate the Yankees the next two games. That game yesterday was a nail biter!

And Go Cardinals! The Diamondbacks have recently won a series, and it's been a longer time for the Cardinals.

Most of all, I'm looking forward to the Rays/Rangers game tonight... What an exciting time emoticon

Amazing Rays indeed! emoticon I didn't realize their game against the Rangers had started at 5:00PM yesterday and only turned on MASN at 7:00PM. What a thrill to see how well they were playing! I felt bad for the Rangers; although I suspect they'll come back today and pound "that team from Florida"!

Too bad the Yankees/Tigers game got rained out. I really wanted to see the Yankees go down the 1st game of the ALDS. Oh well, there is still a chance!

Not sure which Team I'd like to back from the National League. I guess whichever one hasn't been to a World Series for the longest time. I guess that means I won't be cheering on the Phillies, Nancy emoticon

Of course my main, overall goal is to make sure the Yankees don't win the Series... The next couple of weeks are going to be EXCITING!!! emoticon

What an ending it was awesome. They malled Robert. I watched the very last play on my Ipad for I was having trouble sleeping. Then I check to see where the ray and yanks were it was tied. Phew what a night. I just love it. Ok now on to the playoffs. I'm rooting for the Philly since my brother lives there and who ever are playing the yankees. Have a great morning all.

OMG! OMG! As soon as I woke up this morning, I turned on ESPN Sports Center. When I heard the news I leaped out of bed, all morning sleepiness gone from my mind and body. emoticon What a night for baseball! Someone on Sports Center said, "If you're not a baseball fan, you're not a fan". Tim Kirchien (sp?) said, "This is why baseball is the best sport. You could never see this kind of situation in football or basketball". He accurately expressed why we all LOVE baseball.

Anyway, I had planned to watch all of last night's games, but gave up when the Red Sox pulled ahead of the Orioles 3 -2 and the Yankees had a 7 to 0 lead over the Rays. yes, I'm a coward emoticon . Even this morning, I hesitated to turn on the TV to find out how it all ended. I'm so grateful to Sports Center which has replaid the defining moments of all 3 Wild Card games this morning. I am so excited!!! emoticon

(I feel just a touch sadness for the Angels, but only one Team can win the Wild Card and that Team HAS to be the Rays.)
The only thing that would make me happier would be if the Os were going to the post season. But this is the next best thing; they are determining which Teams do go!

Oh I love my Os

Hes doing well. It was a good change for him to go to first base. Now if we can get his strike out under control. Wonder if hes married my youngest is single. All though she like Brian Matuz (not sure how to spell his name)

Poor Jeremy didnt get the win again. He did pitch really well. That dang closer Gregg blew another save. Woo Hoo for that cute young I cant remember his first name. They malled him. That awesome. Hes just the right age for my youngest. LOL Lets get another on tonight.

Yes, he's been doing much better. I'm watching the Toronto game right now - Jeremy Guthrie did really well tonight. I hope we keep our lead - we are in the top of the 9th!

I was so sorry that the Orioles couldn't take the Yankees last night. They played well but couldn't get the runs across the plate.
Alfredo Simone pitched well, I thought. He pitched at the game my DD and I went to earlier in August and he was terrible! I'm so glad to see the improvement; he may turn out to be a keeper emoticon

I was shocked too! I love watching him on MASN and listening to his old smokey laugh. They didn't mention anything during last night's game. :( Prayers go out to his family.

I was shocked this morning when I read about Mike Flannagan. So sad I really like him. But on a high light they took the series.

Sure enjoyed watching the game yesterday. I'm so glad that our team roughed up the Tigers pitcher a lot more than they messed up ours!

Go Os!

Speaking of our two new pitchers--my daughter and I went to yesterday's game against the Blue Jays and Simon pitched. emoticon He's got a long way to go...

I always enjoy being at Camden Yards so the day wasn't a total loss. And Mark Reynolds sent two balls way out of the park, which was exciting to watch. But our fielders made a number of stupid errors which led to a number of Blue Jays runs. sigh...

On the positive side, Elizabeth and I discovered the lounges where fans can go to cool off and watch the game on TV. It really was hot, so we were glad for the break.

The bottom line, though, is that I can never stop being an Orioles fan emoticon

I like KOJI as well. Why is it that the Os seem to always trade away the promising young players?!

Hi all I listen or watch all the time. I'm so glad they won yesterday. Its hard when you know they are trying but it seems it just is going right. I will never give up on them though. Lets go for 2 in a row. We haven't been to a game yet this year either. Must pick one out soon. Will not go when they play the Red Sox or Yankees.

Hello Orioles' Fans!

I wish I didn't think this, but I'm glad the arrival of my first grandchild has kept me from paying much attention to baseball these past few months. I finally listened to the game last night and was happy they won. However, when I heard the announcer say that this win snapped a 9 game losing streak, I felt a little down. emoticon

How are you all coping with this Team that has so much potential but keeps on losing more games than it wins? I'd like to know!
