    losing your season with Ubaldo Jimenez on the mound must hurt

    that was an entertaining game

    Rangers-Blue Jays is going to be a blood bath. I hope the Rangers punk the Blue Jays all series long

    Texas vs. Toronto. I win either way. Pure schadenfreude. If both teams immolated themselves, I'd applaud for hours.

    ‏@Ned2point0 In the middle of the post-game press conference, Buck Showalter turns to Zach Britton and tells him to start warming up in the bullpen.

    Buck was waiting until the O's scored a run, then Britton, obviously. Didn't work out that way, since the O's hit like girl scouts, inning after inning.
    The best laid plans...
    But Ubaldo..c' mon Buck...

    Sometimes, when trying to win a ballgame, stopping the other team scoring runs is also important. Haha.

    That thinking is always so weird to me. Why would you want a lesser reliever to try and give up ZERO runs meanwhile your better reliever be given the comfort that he can give up, at minimum, one run.

    At the end of the day, the Orioles had a top 3 Cy Young finisher and they didn't put him in an elimination game

    Showalter has always come across as a "by the book" and not very creative/smart guy. Super dull. I also find it weird that he has bounced around so much over the years, good at getting hired and fired. He would drive me crazy if he was managing my team. There is no excuse for not pitching Britton. None.

    dan plesac has been saying it all night
    if you're a baltimore fan it would be easier to accept the loss if it happened with your best pitcher on the mound

    That makes sense during the season, you don't want to burn your best arm in a losing effort if you can help it. But in the playoffs there are certain rules that change, and this is one of them.
