Video & Audio VIDEO: Dan Connolly and Steve Cockey discuss the first half of the Orioles’ season By Dan Connolly July 18, 2017 at 8:24 pm Share Tweet Share Share Email Comments Related Items:video-audio Share Tweet Share Share Email 4 Comments 4 Comments garyintheloo July 14, 2017 at 11:58 am In my opinion adding Britton who has been on the disabled list most of the first “half” and “Crush” Davis who has played crushed as well aren’t going to change anything dramatically over the next ten days. As Dennis Green once said, “They are who we think they are.” The issue for me is if they don’t make any moves of substance what are you going to do for 2018? Unproductive drafts, signings and AAAA prospects put us here approaching last call. When DD was hired we were going to search the world for prospects but famously sell those slots now for suspects. It seems like stealing leftover drinks from someone’s table. Pablo Sandoval is a great example that the ship of the horizon is departing rather than coming in. You can drink up for either cheers or sympathies but ten games won’t do it just as the first 32 did not.

I’ll follow my favorite team this year for the love of the game and not the chance to dance naked down Charles Street in October. Who replaces Tillman, Miley, Jimenez, Kim, Smith, Castello, Hardy, etc. and provides some prop up for a rather beat up Adam Jones? What should we look forward to happen?

I don’t think we know who they are. 22-10 and 20-36 are distinctively different teams. And if this club goes, say, 7-3 in a tough homestand, I do think it gives the organization pause. Because two months will be left to play. Log in to Reply You must be logged in to post a comment Login or Register Here Leave a Reply Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
