Just noticed that James Baldwin worked 4 shutout innings for the Orioles giving up just 3 hits,1 walk and 1 K. Not bad. Could he be healthy for once?

Did he start the game? Were the regulars for the other team in?

I wish JB all the best. I was lucky enough to spend an entire evening with him just one on one as we talked baseball and pounded Guiness when he first came up with the Sox. He's really a great guy and I think he was vital part of the Sox and their dugout chemistry in 2000.

All the best to JB. I hope he is healthy this year, and puts up good numbers. However, I don't think that you can look too far into one performance at the beginning of Spring Training. But, hopefully we see him do well throughout ST.

I'll always remember JB for that gutsy effort in game three against Seattle. I really wish him the best, though I doubt he'll ever be healthy again.

Game 3 of the 2000 ALDS, he was the only one that showed up to play and pitched one of the guttiest games ever. Haven't been able to dislike him since.

Good luck, JB, unless you're playing us, of course. :gulp:

I actually have a JB baseball card from when he was with the South Bend White Sox (now the Silverhawks.) Boy, how young he looks in that photo. :D:

JB was a competitor, but many people think even his break out first-half of 2000 was an anomaly.

I'll always have a special place in my heart for "the walk" where JB would take 15 min to go from the mound to the dugout between innings.:D: Someone mentioned that playoff game from 2000, and yes that was a gutty performance considering the guy was pitching injured and kept us in the game even though our offense couldn't hit their way out of a paper bag that day.:(:

I think JB was finally starting to come into his own but that injury he had towards the end of 2000 did him in. He lost a ton of velocity when he finally came back and just didn't have it anymore after 2000. I wish him the best of luck, he was always a great clubhouse guy and was really nice when I met him.

He had an outstanding rookie season in 96 as well... at one time he was 9-1 before the outstanding bullpen comprised of Larry Thomas, Matt Karchner and their ilk starting blowing saves in record numbers (since broken by the Orioles..)

(Shudders) Larry Thomas....ugh. Those were dark days. Luis Andujar, Mike Bertotti, Tony Castillo, Brian Keyser...with pitchers like that, I can't imagine why we didn't win a division title.

JB was a stud for the Sox, sorry to see his arm go, good luck on the rehab!
