You've got to keep pushing Adam Jones, 3CATSLEP! He needs a push now and then. The last two games with the Blue Jays have been disappointing, although I've seen some fine efforts here and there. I WANT TO WIN THIS SEASON!!!! Who do you think will help get us there?

But we won today against the Rays 5 to 2 with good pitching and great hitting by the Os...

No, I didn't know about Chris Davis' twins. My younger brothers are twins. Even at the tender age of 5, I could see how much of my mother's time they took...

Been following today's game on MLB Gameday, which means you can't watch or listen, but you can read what's happening in real time. Not quite as exciting as listening to the game.
Anyway, the Orioles just lost their 4th game in a row. I know that's to be expected, but a win once in awhile wouldn't hurt!!! emoticon
Oh well, it's baseball season now, and nothing and no one can take that away!

February 23 is the first 2018 spring training game. I often don't pay much attention to these games because the clubs are always trying out new players and the wins and losses don't mean much..
But I'm started for baseball emoticon broadcasts so I'll probably tune in emoticon

I'll miss the camaraderie Jones and Schoop bring to the Team as much as Machado's skills. Of course, if these changes bring us to a World Series, that could be some compensation emoticon

It won't. Good as gone. Only question is when, where and for whom.

Other pending free agents are Jones (you don't pay big bucks for a 32 year old in statistical decline), Britton (coming off injuries) and Brach.

It's going to be rebuilding time. Watch and see.

I've been to Sarasota several times. Definitely worth the trip! You are much closer to the players than at Camden Yards. And planning the trip on your own instead of paying for a package deal is probably much cheaper.

Spring Training is almost here!

Their packages are way expensive. We do it cheaper.

Two plane tickets, two box seats x 2 games, three hotel nights on the beach, car rental - a hair less than $2,000 for two people.
