    And the people hide their faces
    And they hide their eyes
    Cause the city's dyin'
    And they don't know why

    Oh, Baltimore
    Ain't it hard just to live?


    Yes Nina. Yes it is.




    This thread will carry us through both games assuming the Sox win the opener. If they somehow do not, someone better step up quickly for game 2.

    But, who are we kidding, the O's are just so bad.

    Rain in the forecast. Supposed to start around first pitch and continue until about 11:00.

    showers and possible thunderstorms. if the tstorms miss, it could just be lots of rain that doesn't stop the games.

    StupendousWoman and I will make an appearance at this afternoon's game, so we're hoping that the rain is only a brief shower. Section 33, row 3, just to the right of behind home plate. I'll be wearing a green polo shirt and a dark blue cap with "M" for "Milton" on it. Please visit and say hi!

    So, I have to admit, this 1980 jingle for Orioles baseball coverage on WBFR is kind of awesome... sounds like "Hairspray" via Neil Diamond

    Forecast for rain keeps getting pushed back. First game should be fine. Second game might see some thunderstorms.

    Not that I'm second-guessing a > .700 team that just scored 19 runs, but why isn't JD batting third? Looks like the lineup today will start with Betts, 10D, Moreland, JD again. Both from a R L R L standpoint (for relievers later in games, both Moreland and 10D have real splits) and the possibility of getting JD one more at bat than Moreland, I'm just not sure I understand why this is the default lineup construction.

    Yes, the Orioles are terrible and the lefties in the O's pen can't get anyone out and we'd probably be fine with Dan Butler batting cleanup, but I'm just wondering if Cora has ever addressed this somewhere.

    Also, in honor of the 50 runs that were scored in the Red Sox and Yankees games yesterday, I'd like the Sox to continue their match towards 50 games over .500, the Orioles 50 games under .500 and, as a result, the Orioles being > 50 games out of first place.

    Here’s hoping that season ticket holder who threw his hat and yelled at his wife and two kids to leave last nights game has to do it again twice today.

    Is Cora starting to throw the occasional rest day thing for his starting position players out the window? Mookie, for one though, might throw that little snarl of his at his manager if he got an off game now.

    Get this first one and see what happens in the second game. Tomorrow you gotta feel good about getting the W with Sale on the mound.

    That pitch that he started walking to first on was the most obvious strike I’ve seen someone try to walk to first on

    Getting one hit and no runs in four innings off Jimmy Yacaboner might be the low point of the season.

    The best news appears to be that if it stays this way through five innings, things have improved

    Yeah if that is the low point of the season it just goes to show what a crazy season it is.

    And Nunez hits a homerun so it is no longer a low point.
