And so will everyone else. Let the bidding begin.

 

The O's have the chips.

And 34th in SP WAR.


Ok? And how many of the 33 above him would you trade him for to have for the rest of the season?

Yeah, me saying he's been good-not-great is totally rooting for his failure. Hokay.

Also, literally find any example of me rooting for the Orioles to lose, or being happy about a loss.

Any example.

Go ahead.


It’s baked in your tone. Obviously you’ll never write “I’m happy the Os lost and Burnes got lit up!”

It’s how you “randomly” wander in here and really don’t have much to say until the worm turns. It gets old. You do the same thing during ravens games. You ruin game threads.

“Drrrr then go ahead and block me drrrrr”

Not that easy. Taking out a massive chunk of the thread makes it hard to follow. The convo gets choppy.

So, you know, I deal!

Oh for goodness sakes.

Nothing in my tone has EVER suggested I want the Orioles to lose. In fact, I get so irrationally upset at particularly frustrating losses that I say things I later realize we're stupid. A lot of us do that. I have literally no reason to want the team I've rooted for since I was 7 to lose, ever. Period. End of story.

Go back and check my reactions to Burnes being acquired. I was thrilled. I just don't think he's the same pitcher he was 2 years ago and I'm disappointed in how frequently he coughs up runs in the later innings, as well as his drop in K rate. How you make the leap from that to "you want him to get lit up and the team to lose" is absurd and completely insupportable.

I’m good. My days of arguing with brick walls on message boards are long gone. You do you.
