Ehhh, Chen not so much.

To clarify, Kremer is dealing.

6IP, 2H, 0R, 2B, 8K, 3 pop-ups

I think his day is finished. Pitch count got elevated with a few 8+ pitch ABs. Curveball and FB command were as good as I've seen them, didn't start throwing anything else until about the 5th inning. 

 

Nice to see the pop ups.

Just as good as strikeouts IMO, I want to run a version of K%-BB% that's K+Pop%-BB+HBP-IBB%.

168Ks on the season in 125.1 innings. Pretty good.

I think your 14 ranking for him may be low.    I realize these guys are close, but could you explain why you have Tate above Kremer?

It may be very well be, he's already higher on my running list.

The simple answer for why I ranked Tate higher was that after watching 4-5 of Kremer's starts, I didn't see a third pitch that could be particularly useful at the big league level. Since I made the list (the first one, I didn't change any of the rankings for the recent one with the Gausman/Schoop prospects), the change has flashed average in a couple starts. Fastball command was the best I've seen today.

I thought is was being bold throwing a 50 on him, something I hadn't seen anywhere else, but with more looks, the 50 seems pretty tame.

Must be that excellent Orioles pitching development at work!

I attended the Baysox game today.  Kremer looked real good, never seen him pitch previously.  Did a nice job mixing up his pitches.  Stadium radar gun showed 93 - 94 mph on several fastballs.  

Jay Flaa came in and pitched the 7th, 8th, and 9th.  Gave up a 2-out, none-on HR in the 9th.  Other than that, he looked good as well.

Baysox offense was helped out by some keystone cops defense by Erie.  Offensively Baysox were led by Austin Hays (HR, double) and Corban Joseph (HR).  Yusniel Diaz wasn't too impressive with the bat IMO - but just a one-game sample size.

Kremer closed out his season with a 6 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 10 K performance.   His ERA at Bowie was a tidy 2.58 and he had 53 K’s in 45.1 IP.

Wonder if he goes back to Bowie to start 19 or if they push him to Norfolk. 

Bowie's rotation is going to be pretty full with three sure promotions (Lowther, Baumann, and Wells) and Zimmerman and Gonzalez repeating.  

He's been dominant.  I'd start him in Norfolk despite him only having 50 innings in Double A.

I agree there’s a good chance he gets promoted to Norfolk.

    • I like the new musical diddys played on MASN in the background during games and going into breaks. Got rid of the old stuff. I like it, change everything.
    • Still a couple more months to go that could sway the voting for me.
    • TJ McFarland...easily one of my least liked pitchers of the Buck/DD era just absolutely carving us up. Kinda helps when you get strike calls at the ankles.
    • That was a shockingly bad strike 3 call by the umpire to Villar.  I have never seen a strike called that low in my life.  Of course it hurts less when you are up 7-2, but still, that was absurd.
    • While it's nice and everything, it doesn't change the fact that Smith is a huge liability defensively and that far outweighs the offense he brings. He's got to hit like Ortiz to offset that if we're going to keep putting him in left field.
    • Very pleased.  Our front office is going after appropriate refuse from other organizations (Ruiz, Smith Jr, Broxton, Wojo) and giving them chances.  We are building out what I expect will be a top 10 analytical organization and introducing analytics throughout the organization in a game of catch-up with the rest of baseball.  We are investing in technology that we didn't have before.  We spent good $ in the 2018-19 J2 period and are off to a great start in this one.  We made a good trade with Cashner.  I believe we had a good draft last month.  The major league team is playing more competent baseball than I expected - especially with our top starter injured.  I love the way the guys in the major league dugout are cheering for each other when there is success.  I think our GM and the rest of the FO are checking the boxes that we wanted checked. Regarding the actual performance of our players, I would we should be absolutely thrilled at the emergence of John Means and the performance of Trey Mancini - two all-star quality producers.  Our minor leaguers are performing IMO - as a whole - above expectations and showing tremendous depth. It's a rebuild.  We still have overhang of bad contracts - not a surprise.  We are giving opportunities to guys who will not succeed at the major league level. I would say the biggest reason I am pleased is that I have more confidence than at the beginning of the season that our next competitive team is NOT five years away.  It should not take until 2024 with the current minor leaguers we have, the projected payroll, the supplementary international talent.  Things are moving forward at a good pace.
