Attack of the Killer Replay Center

Just so we’re all aware of what the brave new world of “challenging calls” in the MLB will be like, the ball in the photo above was called fair when Nick Markakis initially belted it into Fenway’s left field corner for a double. Then John Farrell challenged it, a reasonable decision since the NESN feed — from which the above screengrab was pulled — clearly showed the...

Nick Markakis starts double play with great diving catch (GIF)

Baltimore Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis started a double play in Wednesday’s game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Markakis made a nice diving catch on a line off the bat of David DeJesus and then got up to too to shortstop J.J. Hardy to double James Loney off of second base. Things were not just good in the field for Markakis, as he also notched two hits at the plate but did not score.

Nick Markakis’ New Look Indicates He Spent This Offseason Lost At Sea

With Spring Training on the horizon, Orioles outfielder Nick Markakis has emerged from his offseason cave or deserted island to debut a new, “fluffier” look. The usually well-groomed Markakis now has a curly fro with a pretty grizzly beard, making him look more like a 70s disco icon (or Raffi from ‘The League’) than a professional baseball player. Maybe Nick watched the...

Nick Markakis: A-wrist-ed development?

Nick Markakis was the one player on the Baltimore Orioles in 2007 and 2008 that teams did not want to face at the plate. After a very good rookie campaign in 2006, Markakis became a star in the next two seasons and compiled 11.6 rWAR during those two seasons (10.6 fWAR). In 2013, this same Nick Markakis became one of the least valuable players in baseball with -0.1 WAR on both...

The Mets Support Orioles OF Nick Markakis…Wait What?

Picture Courtesy of @MetsPolice Well the New York Mets are trying their best, to get not only their players voted into the All-Star Game this year, but to help out other players as well. Nick Markakis is, in my opinion, a very talented Right Fielder for the Baltimore Orioles. I think with a big season, he could certainly be an All-Star for the American League. He has never made it...

Markakis Coming into His Own (Or Was Anyway...)

I was working on this post but then I was at that game last Saturday night at OPACY when C.C. Sabathia hit Nick Markakis with a pitch and broke his thumb and it thoroughly bummed me out so I set this post aside. I'm going to post it anyway since I think his recent performance still hints at future greatness...If I consider Nick Markakis' Oriole career disappointing, it'...

The O's Got The Win, But Lost a Bigger Piece In Nick Markakis

The Orioles splitting their four-game series with the Yankees in Baltimore was not ideal - it left them a game back in the AL East - but is was more or less the expected result given that New York is the better team but the O's had home-field advantage. Both victories for the team came in exciting fashion, perhaps especially the second one in which a hobbled Mark Teixeira slid...
