Just Enjoy It, Ya Silly Cynics

Chris Davis (19) rounds third base after hitting a monster home run in the top of the ninth inning of Craig Kimbrel.
If you listened to ESR’s hour during Section 336’s Birdland Radio, then you would have known that I have plenty of concerns about this team. My prediction for the team (78 wins) was closer to the PECOTA projections than those of Orioles fans excited about Chris Davis’ return. My concerns haven’t materialized. During this Orioles winning streak, they’ve won both with the bats and with the arms. There have been exciting wins like Opening Day’s Matt Wieters walk-off single and Monday’s ninth inning Chris Davis go-ahead 3-run home run. There […]

This certainly wasn’t the case yesterday. After getting mowed down by Chris Sale in the early game, the Orioles turned it around and took the second leg of yesterday’s single admission double header. While Sale made the O’s bats look silly, at least they took care of business against the rookie, Chris Beck. If you […]

GIF: Adam Jones Is Not Happy

In the bottom of the 7th inning during tonight’s game against the Toronto Blue Jays, tempers began to really flare. Jason Garcia threw behind Jose Bautista. Bautista thought that it was intentional, and stared down the relief pitcher. Then, he crushed a home run. via @MLBGIFs Then, he proceeded to hot dog it around the bases. The Orioles, particularly Adam Jones and Ryan Flaherty, weren’t too happy about it. via @masnOrioles I’m not sure if Garcia meant to throw at Bautista, but one this is certain: Jose Bautista thought that […]
