Cuellar’s lost gem and losing two of three vs the A’s

Speaking of gems, Mr. Mike Cuellar was one such gem. We (Orioles) stole him from Houston in a trade. And this special pitcher took the mound on Oct. 9, 1973. It was game three of the American League playoffs against the powerful Oakland Athletics.

This best of five series was knotted at 1-1. Jim Palmer had taken care of the A’s in game one.

Lefty Kenny Holtzman would pitch for Oakland in this day game on the coast. And big Earl Williams would put one over the fence early for early Orioles 1-0 lead. And Cuellar made the lead stand up. That is until the eighth inning. Joe Rudi’s clutch two-out single tied the game in the eighth. Read the rest of this entry »

Oakland Athletics fans of booing

Bs37smWCUAECh3f.jpg largeThe Baltimore Orioles just finished up a weekend series with the Oakland Athletics and they lost the series two to one. The Orioles played well in every game but the final game, which was on a Sunday a day that the Orioles typically do not play well on. The Athletics are a very good team and the Orioles have had their feuds with them since the Manny Machado and Josh Donaldson incident.

I personally have always liked the Athletics as a baseball team since I was a kid. The Athletics were on my list of teams that I did not mind seeing win when the Orioles were in their down years because they were a low-budget small-market team. Honestly, I still do not have a problem with seeing them win against the likes of the Angels and Texas Rangers. Read the rest of this entry »

Three Tides that Have High Trade Value

Tyler Wilson (8)With the MLB trade deadline coming up, I thought I would take a look at three Norfolk Tides’ players who has the most trade value. I’m not saying these players will be traded because I have no inside information about anything the Orioles do. This is simply just a list of three players who have been performing really well at the Triple-A level who could help other major league teams either this season or next.

  1. Tyler Wilson

Tyler Wilson has been a huge help for Norfolk’s injury-plagued rotation since his promotion from Double-A Bowie. Wilson was dominate at the Double-A level with a 10-5 record and a 3.72 ERA and continued it with Norfolk. In three starts with the Tides, Wilson has a 2-0 record with an ERA of 2.25.
