    They may be the worst team [I]right now[I] but they will be back before you know it.

    It's actually amazing how bad they really are. Granted, the AL East is insane, but they're downright awful. It's obviously way too early to even talk about how good Weiters really is, but when SI is saying that he's better than Mauer before he even got called up, the poor bastard was kinda screwed. They've got young talented arms, and though they haven't panned out just yet, that's how you have to build (look at the Rays rotation). Adam Jones has been awful though, and I wouldn't be surprised to see them move Millwood, or Bedard ( who will cost more).

    angelos....bag him & tag him

    Peter Angelos is the reason that the O's blow, and also why no decent player will ever sign for the O's as long as that clown owns the team. Too bad, cause the ballyard is awesome, the fans are cool & know baseball & the history of the franchise is terrific.

    -- Yankees in the AL (my first game was at the original Stadium & The Mick was playing CF)
    -- Nats in the NL (the Lerners are finally coming around to reality, as owners)

    Wow really? That's awesome!!! my grandpa caught one of his homerun balls and the cover is half torn off. also got him to sign the ball. when i was a kid, i decided it would be cool if i signed my name on the other side of the ball. well, that devalued the ball quite a bit. but its no big deal, i wouldn't have sold that ball in a million years anyway since my grandpa gave it to me, and he died of lou gehrig's disease a few years later

    The orioles are bad cus they are very inconsistent. One night they score 1 run and lose 3-1 the next they score 7 and lose 7-11 you can never count on any sort of pattern if they could at least get one pitcher that you know is only gonna give up 2or 3 runs we would do much better, and all the hype just adds pressure it dosnt help matters now we look like even more of a dissapointment then we really are.

    In my opinion, I dont think the O's have a bad team at all. They are just very unfortunate to play in the AL East which is stacked with teams. If you think about it, you have the yanks, rays, and sox in the division, which are prolly 3 of the top 5 teams in baseball. You can also throw in the blue jays who have done very well this year and have a good record. The O's have to face each of these teams roughly 20 times a year which works out to something like 75 or 80 games against the best teams in baseball. If they played in another division, I think they would at least be a .500 ball club.

    I understand what you getting at but the Orioles play a lot of other teams besides the ones in the AL East. I mean I love them and I always will but as a sane person I have to admit that a 17-46 record if abismal for any division. Get rid of Schneider in Washington and Angelos in Balt. and the beltway will be redeemed.

    i am a yankees season ticket holder though sometimes i sell my ticket to my buddy who i go with, and don't make it to every game i got a ticket for, because it's sometimes time consuming, and the bronx isn't exactly around the corner. i also get tired of having to be on the gw bridge by 4;00 for a 7;00 game. the walk from the lot sucks unless we get there at least a half an hour before the game starts, and with the traffic we're lucky if we even cross the gw by midnight after an evening game. other than that it's great. i fell out of following baseball for years too. this was the first year i went to the new stadium. i did'nt see any games last season. i also got to go to two of the subway series games at citifield, and i liked citifield more than the new yankee stadium.


    any yankees fans or anyone in general like this jaba chamberlain joker? the fact that joe girardi has so much faith in this guy is hilarious. 2 out of every 5 games he might get away without blowing the ball game. i don't know how many times they brought him in for the yankees to blow the game. joe girardi gives his press conference, and talks about how ''jaba is great, but he didn't have it today. as pitchers they got good days, and bad days.'' uh seriously? like he's really gonna get on there, and say one of his players sucks.


    i also like the colorado rockies though up until the last three years they have been pretty whatever. this year too. they always have good teams, but they chalk it all up to coors field being a home run haven, and especially for the visiting teams. coors field in denver, and the newer stadium that the giants play at in san francisco are my favorite stadiums i've been to. my dad was a mets fan when i was growing up, and he would take me to shea stadium quite a bit. i always liked shea more than yankee stadium, because it always seemed more cleaner, and classier, and it just had a better atmosphere.

    if you have a chance you should check out nats stadium in DC. its amazing (not as agood as Camden though)! The only thing they got wrong was that homeplate faces parking garages and not a memeorial or the anacostia river. as Macgruber would say, "Weeaakk."
