Base Running is ATROCIOUS

 

After leaving a total of 16 runners on base the orioles fail to convert no more than one run.  We seemed to be able to get on base just not knock anybody in. I mean its not like we didn’t have chances they were 0-8 with runners in scoring position. Can someone tell me what Izturis was thinking when there was a ground ball to Teixeira? I mean I probably would have faked the run home and take the out at first rather than take a man out of scoring position! Our base running has killed us this year. But every time we lose I just say to myself “ONE DAY WE WILL WIN” and when that day comes when we don’t make all these stupid mental errors, I will be a happy man.

Totally different subject. I wrote a post last week about how I think that oriole park isn’t loud enough and more people need to get into the games. Well I had some feedback such as people saying they think the people that yell can be annoying and obnoxious. I tend to disagree. I think the orioles don’t want a football crowd at the stadium like it was at memorial stadium, but that is another post for a different day. So I ask you. Would you like a Ravens type of crowd or an Oriole type of crowd to be at Camden yards to root on the birds. And when I say ravens type of crowd I mean they are into every play (paying attention to the game and interested).
