I feel like, for many of us, he's our connection to the O's glory days. We have the audio/video footage, but he's a walking, talking keeper of O's history. Despite how some fans feel about Jim, I think we're lucky to have him.

No doubt, Jim loves himself some Jim and always has, but no one, IMO knows more about Baseball in general than Palmer.  He along with Brooks, Boog and a few others are the last links to the glory days of Oriole baseball.

When he recently sold his condo, and with the health issue.... I was worried he was going to announce a retirement from announcing. 

I hope he stays around as long as he can.

If only he could have won that final game against Milwaukee in 1982. . . :)

I still remember watching that game at my sister's house.

I really think he would have won the Cy Young award if he'd won that game.

 

I was looking back at the box score a while ago...  I had remembered it as a blowout, since the O's lost 10-2, but there was a point when the game was still close and the O's had a rally going, but Ben Oglivie made an unexpectedly great catch and the O's didn't score.

   I remember watching the game on TV.

 

   Palmer did not pitch that badly, but he did not have his best stuff.

 

   Sutton was a bulldog, scattered eight hits over eight innings.

 

   I vaguely remember the Oglivie catch. I remember how deflating the play was however.

 

   Even though it was not a blowout, ( The Brewers scored five runs in the top of the ninth) the Brewers were in           control of the entire game.

 

   I think you are correct that Palmer may have won the Cy Young if the orioles won that game.
