I don't get the point of blocking a guy and then posting about him constantly?

Ignore should mean...ignore.

No one thinks poorly of all Nats fans because one Nat fan is a pain in the ass. Two pain in the ass Nats fans, on the other hand...

Man, I love this Orioles team. They are on some kind of run right now and they are so much fun to watch.

I'll be at Wrigley on Sunday to watch them play the Cubs. Supposed to be the next day with no threat of rain (heh). I'm looking forward to seeing the O's play, though they'll probably stomp the Cubs like ants.
   103. Spahn Insane Posted: August 20, 2014 at 11:38 PM (#4776052) lists Vogelsong and Wada as the probable starters for the resumed game tomorrow afternoon at Wrigley. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say those two won't be pitching.

That Gausman/Arrieta matchup on Friday should be a good one, and particularly interesting for O's fans, I'd think.
   105. Spahn Insane Posted: August 20, 2014 at 11:41 PM (#4776054)
And Wada's likely to go on Sunday. All O's, all the time.

I don't understand it from his perspective, but all of the Joey B posting saves me the trouble of looking at the NL East standings.

I am hoping to see smardjza keep pitching like he did tonight for the a's. Not that I'm against them but it would shut one of my friends up. Yes I am that petty.

Yep, I'm looking forward to all three games, and day games to boot.

I'm still a big Arrieta fan, and I'm ecstatic he finally seems to be putting it together, that should be a fun one.

Wada never actually pitched for the O's because he immediately got TJ surgery, so I'll be interested to see him actually pitch after all the Orioles beat writers rehab reports on the guy.

I wonder if any O's will take in the suspended game in their off day tomorrow.

Man, I love this Orioles team. They are on some kind of run right now and they are so much fun to watch.

On June 29, they were a game and a half out of first, and they've gone 31-13 since then to build a 9(!) game divison lead.

Still a lot of baseball left, but ain't the beer cold right now.

Jesus, is it possible that an O's - Nats World Series would take the Deadskins off WTEM for an hour or two a day?
