I'm glad you went back to the pissy dog.

Now if only the Red Sox could get a win.

I would just like to add, MLB.TV is great this year. Plus MLB At Bat works on my Xoom this year. I just sat on the john and watched a portion of the game. Not because I had to shite...but because I could.

Do you know if the subscription renews every year? I had it the last two years and went to get it this year, but it said I already had it. Was a bit confused but havent looked into it since the games are all on direcTV this week

I blame Mark Connor. He completely fricked up our pitching staff the same way that he destroyed the Rangers pitching staff a few years back. He also almost killed B-Mac's career so that's another reason to hate him.

Edit: Here's a blog post discussing how Connor and Showalter changed Matusz's pitching motion to help the Orioles pitchers cut down on steals and how much it ended up affecting their performance.

quote:

Brian Matusz was given one last chance to end his disastrous 2011 season on a high note, despite the fact that pitching in Fenway Park is not the best environment to nurture success. Matusz's performance last night was to be expected from a pitcher whose struggles are well known by now, as he was unable to get out of the second inning, ending with a line of 1.2 IP, 6 H, 6 ER, 2 BB and 0 K.

His 2011 stats look even worse: 1-8 W-L, 10.68 ERA, 44.2 IP, 2.13 WHIP, 16 HR. I don't have the record books close by but I think I recall hearing that Matusz's 2011 season will go down as the worst pitching season of all time for a pitcher with at least 44 IP.

During spring training, Buck Showalter and Mark Connor made it a point to get the O's pitchers faster to the plate to cut down on steals. This caused a large ripple effect throughout the pitching staff this year, causing many pitchers (Matusz, Bergesen, Gregg and Gonzalez) to struggle because of it. Shortly after, Matusz injured his back and missed a majority of the season. A coincidence? We may never know. Just like we may never really know what caused Connor to quit, but I think it's pretty obvious that the Orioles pitchers were not happy with what they were being instructed to do and Connor didn't want any more of it.

Meanwhile, Matusz could be ruined for good. All because they wanted to get a fraction of a second faster to the plate.
