    I dunno.  Taking two outa three in LA against the hottest team in baseball was a pretty good sign.  Wouldn't ya think?

    This team is resilient and balanced.  They don't seem to get too high or too low.

    Guys, whatever happens, we've been already treated to a season far and beyond all of our expectations.

    We saw 2 or the three games in SF....nice park, crummy food.

    We've been snake-bitten by the Orioles this year.  If we win this series, it may indicate good things ahead.  It'll help having a few days off to arrange the pitching staff.

    Napoli is starting to hit,  Thank God.

    I'll almost be sad to see Drew go, but think Bogey will be the hitter that is expected.

    If Napoli tanks next year, which I don't think will happen, Cechini will be in the wings for 3rd with Middy at 1st,

    It's all great and realistic.

    I hope they sign Ells(but I feel he's not interested in any home-grown contract dicount..ala Pedroia, or it would have happened already.

    I worry about JBJ living up to expectations.

    They may move Nava/Carp to first and put Bogaerts in LF, and hold on to Drew which affords them more lefties then havIng Xander at SS and Napoli at first.

    Taking my cue from Farrell and every guy on the roster, I am not thinking about upturns in fortunes or downturns in fortunes.  Just tonight's game.

    Last night's win was fun to watch.  I have to listen to sox/O's games on the local station so I alway have to listen to O's anouncers. 

    At the start of the year all they would talk about is how horrible the sox played last year and how the O's were so great.  It was so much fun to listen to them last night!  Maybe they learned a lesson.  If you're going to crow at the beginning of the season be prepared to eat it at the end LOL!

    There is a month left to the season and anything can happen but right now things are looking pretty good.

    Its no wonder we had a tough stretch in August. We played the most games of any MLB team the 1st half. Now we will be rewarded with a couple off days that other teams wont get. Tampa is headed on a 11 days WC trip this weekend, Baltimore's starting pitching is mostly mediocre. The team that always worries me is the NYY. Not as much this year, but I can see them making their way to 2nd place by the time its all said and done.

    This team has been on of the most consistent teams in MLB this year and have been truly fun to watch and root for.

    The last time they pounded a team (SF 12-1) Ricky Nolasco pitched a gem against them in the next game (2-0).

    Any time a team has a big night it does not necessarily mean they are going to go on a tear.

    It just means last nights O's pitching really stunk.

    It certainly felt right last night... it all comes down to starting pitching and ours has been consistently good as oflate

    A step in the right direction, but curb your enthusiasm for another two weeks.

    Yes, "curb yor enthusiasm" is a good motto for this board.

    Everyday that log on here , I find I am constantly running into posters who think a 13-2 game = an automatic berth in the World Series or a player that has a 4 for 4 night qualifies for the MVP award.

    It was a big win and even better to win big. The O's have been beating up the Sox for a while now so this pounding gives the team a psychological boost and perhaps knocks a little cockiness out of the O's. A thrashing is just what was needed at this time.

    Conversely, a 2-0 loss = no-heart failures doomed to choke and an ofer qualifies for waivers.
