Ok, no more dumb questions outta me...for now :-[

GO AYALA! :D (glad to see he's still here lol)

Dude I was joking. MASN is pretty much carried by every cable/satellite provider so it's no longer an issue. But Angelos clearly still favors the orioles in the way they cover the teams.

Absolutely.

Btw Chief, thanks for letting us know about the censors option. It's 10x more entertaining now actually seeing the words. :lol:

No problem.  I usually try to keep myself in check and not curse too much (seeing as I'm an "authority figure" and all that) but on nights like tonight, what the freak can you do?

Yep. Horrible move by Kearns.  Should have never happened though. Lee should not have been able to get his bat on an 0-2 pitch.

It was too close to just let it go. He was within a foot of it and he would have saved us the lead. Those plays definitely suck when you're on the wrong side of 'em.

I think he got a bad read on the ball. It definitely cost us the lead there but if he makes that play we praise him for saving the game.

He should be arriving right on schedule, assuming Valverde is able to nail it down.

freak Valverde. Watching him dance and celebrate makes this loss 10 times more frustrating.

Some serious bad luck as well that it didn't catch his glove or his body and stay in his area instead of rolling all the way to the freaking wall.

I don't know.  I appreciate Kearns hustle, but I would like to be more conservative in that situation.  That allowed two runs to score.  Should've pulled back. 

This is a tough pill to swallow.

Bad read or not, you don't dive for that with the go-ahead run on first.  He pulled a Milledge.

freak this bullcrap.  Sorry to sound like sportsfan, but this could be the worst loss of the year.  Maybe it's the second-worst next to that loss in game 3 of that series in Philly.
