Was so glad the Astros beat the Yankees. I also think Trey should have been rookie of the year. He was a little more well rounded the Aaron Judge.

O.K. There will be NO Yankees playing in the W. S. this year. I've chosen to support the Astros because they really did a number on the Yankees and, of course, the are the AL Team!

Let's see what happens... emoticon

I notice when Jim Palmer is announcing, he's pretty tough on them. Gary Thorne is the more hopeful one, probably to keep fans interested. At least we won a game!
(Here's a pic of me yelling to Gary Thorne before the Detroit game this year, and him waving back!)

I've noticed that the game announcers still talk like there's a tiny chance the Orioles might make it into the Post Season. Really! Unless their pitchers don't miraculously turn around, I can't see it happening.

I think this is Jimenez's last year with the Os. Maybe that will help.

I love your post! I agree with your estimation of Trumbo. He always seems so earnest.

As a matter of fact, I'm looking for this team to "jump down, turn around, make it to the Post Season" in spite of their previous record this season. Time is running out, but the Orioles are always ready to surprise us!

P.S. about the Cleveland Indians, a co-worker of mine told me that the last time a team won 20 games in a row (the Angels) never made it past the 1st game of the post season! So, we can't tell yet who's going to make something good happen for their team...

Love Tim Beckham also!

I wish I could like Trumbo - I think he needs a personality - oh well.

Love Jonesy and Schoop of course!

Wow! We are behind in our GameTalk... And I'm not helping emoticon
So, let's try again. Things were starting to turn around until the Yankees came to town. I must admit, though, that Manny's 9th inning 2-out hit was exciting. Maybe we can pick up again with the Indians tomorrow. Go Os! Go Os! Let's hear it fans emoticon

Yes, Ubaldo has pitched well lately. That's a happy surprise!

I was upset with him the last time he pitched (against the Twins). We got 5 runs right away, but an inning later, he walked in 2 runners and gave away 2 doubles, I think, so the score was up to 5 -4. emoticon

But that didn't stop the Orioles who ended up with 11 runs emoticon

After the game I watched Rick Dempsey give the post game review and he said that the home plate umpire kept calling the strikes Ubaldo was throwing balls. That's how 2 of the 4 runs he gave up came about. Rick said if he had been pitching, he would have been in the umpire's face, but Ubaldo is not that kind of person. I'm sure the team discussed it after the game!

Anyway, the Orioles took advantage of the Twins lousy pitching and field errors and added in their own fantastic defensive and offensive skills to win! emoticon

Hoping we get to see more games like that; it seems as if the Orioles really get going during the second half of the season.

I see how inactive we (including myself!) have been. Yet, I miss the 'back 'n forth' we used to have after each game. Perhaps the fact that Ubaldo pitched an outstanding game against the Blue Jays last night will persuade us to start chatting again.

The boys are back in Camden Yards tonight. Let's hope they start/continue a long string of wins!

It's never too early to get ready for the next baseball season! During the off-season we can try to figure out who's satying with the Team, who's not, and who will be newcomers..

So let;s start chatting emoticon
