Just want to point out that so far we have clinched NOTHING-not the overall best record, not first in the ALE, not even a playoff spot. The team was sleepwalking tonight and Farrell gets an F for his managing of tonight's game.
WE ARE ALL JUST POPPYSEEDS IN THE BAKERY OF LIFE
Very good point. This is no way to be heading TOWARDS the playoffs. Many chances to score the last 2 nights with very little to show for it.
I'm completely agree with this statement. I'm pretty sure I saw an ACE ticket commercial saying the Red Sox are in the playoffs get your tickets here. Really? When did they make the playoffs? Did I miss something? They aren't matching the Orioles' intensity. Bases load. No out. Nothing to show for it. Not good. They could make the '11 season seem like joke. I highly doubt it, but I do not like how they looked last night, or tonight. Against Bruce Chen. Yikes.
Number one. We are , without a shadow of a doubt, going to the playoffs. Number two, that was not Bruce Chen. Number three, Buck Showalter is one heck of a good manager. Number four, we cannot be expected to win every game. Number five, we are in a very good position.
2.5 ahead of Oakland, 3.5 ahead of Detroit with 10 to go (9 for us)--which is all that matters. Tampa is over and gone as far as the ALE is concerned. The position is good, but could be better. My thing is that I want TB OUT. I do not want to see their crappy little stadium and listen to their cow bells while they stumble around blindly and have some dumb luck play knock us out of the PS. I want them GONE.
