Bounce back time. Our ace versus theirs

Since I rarely see Houston's home park, what I did watch last night was a head shaker for me.  Just amazing what a band box some of these places are and Orioles bats are certainly taking advantage of them.

I don't think it's a coincidence the former Houston front office saw what a park with a LF short porch looks like and said "what if we do the complete opposite of that" lol

I never liked the cookie cutter parks like Riverfront, Three Rivers, Veterans Stadium, etc...I always like the ones with character, quirks, multi-dimensions. But my issue with Camden Yards was always, if you're going make right field a chip shot, you can't come back and have left field be 356 ft. or whatever it was. Fenway has a spacious right field, old Yankee Stadium was a canyon in left, and so on. Make it balanced. Houston's park is a softball field just like the one the Yankees play in. Its almost miraculous that New York's ERA was as good as it was before the Orioles came to town.

I've been to the juice box a few times. It's the smallest MLB ballpark I've ever been to. 


Good news! I saw a dog today.

Stupid decision to run there when pitcher was having trouble throwing strikes.

Good to see Mullins hitting the ball hard and finally over the Mendoza line.

Has the feelings of a let down series. Exerted a ton of energy in NY.

Nah we've owned Houston lately. They just caught us at the right time this time. Should've expected some struggle after that NY series.

Hou is playing good ball right now. So in that sense a bad time to catch them.
