They are up by 9.5 games and playing the Orioles.

I'd err on the side of caution with Sale. 

They are not in a situation where they need to push guys.

68 pitches.  68.  The Chowdaheads BP allowed more baserunners this inning than Sale did in 5.

This game is pretty unimportant.  Sale healthy for the playoffs is very important.

 Something may be wrong with Davis.

I was thinking there’s more likely something wrong with Buck. He keeps running him out there like he’s fine.

It's not easy, or at least not common, for one team to be 48 1/2 games behind another one in August. When you watch them play against one another, you can see how that would happen.

This is the dictionary definition of "too little, too late."

Judging by the game thread today, it doesn’t look like many folks are watching. But I can honestly say this game is at least in the top 5 worst games I have witnessed as an O’s fan. I know I am overreacting, but the lack of effort that Adam Jones has displayed today in RF is downright embarrassing. I don’t care if he has “earned” the right to do whatever he wants. You carry yourself as a professional and play the game the right way, period. But, what do I know? Of course he will get a pass and Buck will continue to look the other way.

Down by 3 in the ninth inning, the Orioles need baserunners. There probably is not a non-pitcher in MLB with a smaller chance of getting on against Kimbrel than Chris Davis. When Buck lets Davis bat in the ninth inning against Kimbrel, or doesn't challenge what appears to be a bad out-at-first call as he did last night, I think he's sending a message to the players and fans that he doesn't care that much whether the team wins.

To me, that's indefensible. Sure, you want to see how the guys who represent the future will perform. That would explain letting Mullens or Mancini or Beckham or Wynns hit -- but not Davis. Unless Buck is following orders in not trying to win, I would tell him he's done, whether it's now or at the end of the season.

On that strikeout after loosing his bat Davis bent down and grimaced.
