No Fear

No Fear 


I have no fear right now. I feel great. The Orioles took all three series they played in New York. Might as well make it four.

Get ready for Friday. Clear your schedule for 5pm.

We take baseball from the corrupt, the rich, the oppressors of generations who have kept you down, and we give it back to you, the people. The powerful will be ripped from their decadent nests and cast out into the cold world that we know and endure. Spoils will be enjoyed. Blood will be shed. This great sport, it will endure.

This helped me feel better!

Thanks!

We CAN do this. We can put up 10 on Hughes tomorrow. That's not beyond possibility at all. I just wanted it to be the elimination game. I wanted to see Jeter sitting on the bench in the 9th inning looking dejected...like it was a total waste to ruin his body with all those steroids for this one last year only to lose.

They have no chance tomorrow. I already know what drink I'm ordering at 5:07 on Friday.

Edit: "They" is the Yankees....for clarification tongue

I don't know how I can sleep tonight. I'm way too amped up. I really want to watch this game right now. That Blue Jays double header spoiled me.

RE: No Fear 



Speech from the locker room after the Game 3 loss....

Chris Davis: Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?

Mark Reynolds: Germans?

Buck Showalter: Forget it. He's rolling.

Chris Davis: Hell no! And it ain't over now. 'Cause when the goin' gets tough...The tough get going! Who's with me!!?? What the heck happened to the Orioles I used to know? Where's the spirit? Where's the guts, huh? This could be the greatest night of our lives, but you're gonna let it be the worst. "Ooh, we're afraid to go with you Mark, we might get in trouble." Well just kiss my ass from now on! Not me! I'm not gonna take this. Jeter, he's a dead man! Ibanez, dead! Rodriguez....

Mark Reynolds: Dead! Mark's right. Psychotic... but absolutely right. We gotta take these bastards. Now we could do it with conventional weapons, but that could take years and cost millions of lives. No, I think we have to go all out. I think that this situation absolutely requires a really futile and stupid gesture be done on somebody's part!

Chris Davis: We're just the guys to do it!

RE: No Fear 


A little humor is good for the soul. I wish I could feel better...even singing 'My Favorite Things' isn't helping. I was a card carrying Expos fan from the very beginning. I'm used to being crushed, right at the cusp of winning. I've recently endured back to back playoff chokes by the Twins at the hands of the Yankees. Last night was almost too much for me. Being a passionate fan when your team is always the one that loses, is painful.

It would REALLY be nice if this script, which is all too expected, would change and its the Yankees that go home shocked. At the beginning of the series I had very high hopes--even started a thread to say so. But reality bites...and losses like last night just continue to reinforce that all is quite normal in the unfair world of sport: the Expos are gone; the Bills never win; the NHL is dark again; and the Yankees were created to break my heart.

Sure would be nice if somebody woke up our trio of disappearing players. Would be nice to not have to endure watching that damned team in pinstripes celebrating yet again. Would be nice if the O's could win a laugher today. I really hope it happens, but well.........

We're toast.

Our bats have disappeared since the friggin Tampa Bay series.

Except for McClouth and Davis, I dread when it's the top of our lineup.

Why would you even say that?

The Orioles have been an extremely resilient team all year. There is no reason to think they aren't up to the challenge of staring elimination in the face, needing two wins to stay alive.

In this thread, we don't puss out. We don't give up here. Not now, man.

Keep your defeated attitude in the series thread.

Waiting 15 years for a winner and then just giving up when you're down 2-1? Really? ohlord

Excuse me for my poo-poo party. But I've been on the train all season, and I'm sure once the game starts I'll be back on.. But for now.. Yikes.

The thought of losing hasn't crossed my mind all series. The Yankees just don't scare me. I don't see why the Orioles can't take 2/3 and win the series. I've said it before somewhere in this forum in the past 12 hours but, again, the O's have won every series this year at Yankee Stadium. They will win one more.

the way they hit tonite, the thought of winning wasn't crossing my mind...except that little fact that this team has fought off so much adversity and they have hung with NY like a Siamese Twin for over a month. The victory was sweet. Its any mans series now and we have a very good shot at it. CC will be a tough customer but our pitching has been up to the task as well.

Go O's!! Bring it homewink

Re: No Fear 


While it's understandable to be concerned with the bats, also keep him mind that the Yankees hitters are struggling too as well. As much as I'd hate to give any positives about the Yankees during the season, they were one of the best hitting AL teams during the season placing top 5 in almost every offensive category (with the exception of stolen bases and triples). They are struggling against our pitching which is a huge plus given the fact that this series has been played in hitters parks. Having said that, I've got a feeling we're going to see some fireworks in the last game of the series.
