Why the hell did we pitch to Vlad after the 2nd passed ball? Runner on 3rd, one out, and Vlad can't run. Put him on first, pull the infield back, and play for 2. We do that we probably don't give up that run.

Although that probably would have just set up the Orioles for a walk off win. Sigh...


As an Orioles fan, I completely understand how listening to Rick Dempsey can throw anyone off; but Guerrero did not hit another sacrifice fly in the 8th inning and it wasn't the tying run that he plated...Guerrero singled in the go-ahead run.

As for the suggestion that Vlad should have been intentionally walked, that would have created an interesting situation with Luke Scott on deck.

Hope Remy is back, or that NESN finds a better replacement than Dempsey. O's fans know that pain.


You are correct about sac fly vs. single. Thanks for setting me straight on that -- glad I'm not the only one who was taken aback by Dempsey!

Thanks for your comments to both!
