Has ths ever been done before

Recommended Posts

If Castillo gets hot and gets to 20 HR somehow the Orioles can field an entire lineup with 20 or more home runs. I don't ever remember a team doing that. Has it been done before?

3b Machado

Yeah, the '96 team had seven 20-HR guys. The 2017 team looks to be on pace for six, though there's an outside chance Castillo and/or Smith could get there.

Beckham gets an asterisk. He only has 5 homers with the Orioles; the other 12 were with the Rays.

Murray split the season with Cle in 96 so they had 8. Same as Beckham this year

If you went by position you might get 9 . Beef and Caleb have combined for 21. RF so far has at least 16.

SS only has 8.  Beckham with 5 and Hardy with 3.  Tejada had none.

If you count Murray, then you need to count Todd Zeile who it 20 with Phil before coming over. The other really crazy stat about that team? If Hammonds hits one more and Devereaux 2 more, that would give you 10 guys with at least 10 home runs.  I don't think that's ever been done before

That 96 team could mash.  It should have been our year.

They didn't pitch well.   5.14 ERA, 8th in the league.    Moose had a 4.81 ERA and still won 19 games with that offense behind him.

    • I was heartened by his big game in the 2nd to last game of the playoffs - single, double and homer.  No doubt he had a very bad streak there and the injuries were a problem, but the minors are for learning, and I'm sticking with what I said last year.   And his defense increases his prospect value over guys like Stewart.  I like Stewart ok, but imo Mullins is simply a better prospect.  Fwiw, I said that last year, and I haven't changed.     
    • Reds today announced a 4 yr/$15.5M extension with Tucker Barnhart, covering his 3 Arb and first FA seasons.  There's a $7.5M option, or $500K buyout, on FA year 2. I'd guess the structure is about $1M/$3M/$5M Arb, and buying the FA year for about $6.5.  It's one data point for a middle class starting catcher.    
    • It's a bit of an exaggeration to say Alvarez was a staple in RF for a large part of the season.   He started 41 games there.   That experiment ended on June 4.    
    • Actually, I think every manager has a pretty strong say on who makes the 25-man roster to start the year. I think you'll see some of Sisco at C as soon as we are mathematically eliminated.     But that won't be until at least Sunday, and more likely, early next week.   Meanwhile, he'll pinch hit here or there.    
    • I've said it before, but the defense was a huge part IMO.  There was a lot of bad defense on that team, and every one of Ynoa's starts I watched all the way through (4-5 I think) were marred by poor defense, bloop hits, and seeing eye GBs.  I'll have to look through my post history, but there was one game he gave up something like 7 runs, and he pitched about as well as he did last night.  Somewhere between his FIP and xFIP (3.78 and 4.44 respectively) is probably a truer assessment of his ability going forward. It didn't look to me like he was working on stuff, at least not to the extent that it'd really kill his results. Ynoa has one major weakness, the lack of a true out pitch.  I think he's an OK back end guy right now.  If he wants to be more than that he'll need to figure out how to miss more bats.  
    • But those guys on the FA market actually flooded the market. Really what was the market for Britton?  How many teams are at the point where they can justify acquiring a big name closer?  The best fits were the Astros, Cubs and Nats.  The Cubs had just one a WS, so why empty the farm when you just got over the hump.  We don't deal with the Nats.  The Astros haven't dealt any prospects away since the Ken Giles trade. 
    • I'm not sure what the record is, but I suspect it may be the 1930 Phillies, who had a 6.33 starters' ERA.     More recently, the 2006 Royals' starters had a collective ERA of 5.85, a quarter-run higher than the 2017 O's to date (but there's still time!).
