Good Lord that's bad.  To see it in black and white really brings it home.  That's seriously the level of a AAA team.

I just had to text my baseball friends with a screenshot of the lineup because it's so bad. It's going to be a long season.

We'll probably get steamrolled by the Skanks again but GOD it's good to see some real baseball! First full game I get to see.

Looking forward to Thursday's game too, Home Opener. I'll get home from work just in time to see the whole game, no ceremonies.

No Davis, I love it.

Just noticed that. Roch speculating:

Does he sit Davis today or Sunday?

Davis is 1-for-5 against Paxton [today]. Means little. He’s 4-for-25 with two doubles, two home runs and 12 strikeouts against Happ [Sunday]. Could mean a little more.

If Davis sits today, Sunday seems even more likely. Maybe he sits against all lefties? :excited:

Maybe he sits against all pitchers with an 85+ mph fastball. Just play him at batting practice.

Looks like Smith does not have too bad splits. I guess he is an everyday player? I would drop him down though. I think I would rather bump Ruiz than Mullins. Even though RH is his weak side, Mullins is a switch hitter and the best defender (we think) in CF. I would stick with him, with Jackson playing 3B.

Big question for me is Davis vs Nunez.

Edit: I see it's Nunez. Looks like Step 1 of the Davis Phase Out Plan is in effect.

Happy Davis is sitting but it is because he’s terrible or because of   Paxton?

If Davis is sitting because of poor performance, it’s one step closer to cutting bait with him completely.

Maybe Mullins is best suited as a platoon player but if that’s true, why not bring up Santander or even Stewart. Is Smith really so desirable?

I think he's sitting cause of both.

Hardest thing to stomach is Joey Rickard batting fifth. But I guess that's just old-school wishful thinking about the five hole.

He's our new Jake Fox.

    • These have become so important for me. While we are not where we should be, we are definitely seeing some success in the lower levels and that is exciting.
    • Mountcastle hit his 22nd home run today, and more importantly (apparently), walked for the third time in his last 4 games. .312/.342/.521.
    • I was speaking in a general sense.  
    • He’s not on the 40.   He’ll need to be in it in December.  
    • For Immediate Release: August 18, 2019   PITCHING STAFF TOSSES EIGHT SCORELESS IN WIN KEYS SCORE FIVE UNANSWERED TO TAKE SERIES FINALE FREDERICK, MD – After a rocky first inning, the Frederick Keys (20-33, 49-73) pitching staff kept the Fayetteville Woodpeckers (31-25, 62-63) off the scoreboard, earning a 5-3 victory on Sunday afternoon at Nymeo Field. Cole Billingsley broke a 3-3 tie with a bases loaded double that brought home a pair of runs in the sixth inning. Scott Burke (2-2) and Zach Matson (S, 1) then locked down the final four innings as the Keys gave up just one hit after the first inning. Tied 3-3 in the sixth, Will Robertson hit a single to lead off the inning and Jean Carrillo hit a double off the left-field wall a batter later. Parker Mushinski then allowed a walk which drew controversy from the Fayetteville dugout, as Woodpecker’s hitting coach Jason Kanzler was ejected arguing balls and strikes. Billingsley then came to the plate and grounded a ball down the first base line, bringing a pair of runs home to give the Keys a 5-3 lead. Burke retired the first seven he faced out of the bullpen but lost control in the eighth inning. He walked three straight Woodpeckers as Matson was called upon to put out the fire. With the bases loaded and one-out, Matson forced a groundball to third that caught the lead runner at the plate and then struck out the final batter to end the inning. Burke did not allow a hit nor a run over 2.1 innings. Matson polished off the final 1.2 frames and gave up one hit. The first inning resembled yesterday’s seven run opening frame for Fayetteville, as Cameron Bishop struggled to command the ball. He allowed a base hit and walked two batters to load the bases for Miguelangel Sierra, who cleared the bases with a double to give the Woodpeckers a 3-0 lead. Bishop rebounded nicely after that. He walked three batter but did not allow a hit or a run over the next four innings while he finished with five strikeouts. The Keys offense went to work in the third inning. After Mushinski retired the first two batters of the inning, he put two men for Robert Neustrom, who cracked a double to the right-centerfield gap that scored both runners. An inning later, the Keys were able to tie the game 3-3. Robbie Thorburn’s double put runners at second and third and Mushinski then walked a batter to load the bases. Clare then hit a sharp groundball to third baseman David Hensley, who couldn’t handle it cleanly, allowing the tying run to cross. The Keys have an off-day on Monday before opening up a three-game homestand against Potomac on Tuesday, August 20. RHP Blaine Knigjht (1-9, 5.73) takes the mound for Frederick against LHP Nick Raquet (10-8, 4.13) for Potomac. First pitch is scheduled for 7:00pm with pregame coverage starting at 6:45pm on the Tune In app and frederickkeys.com. The Frederick Keys are the Advanced-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, and play their home games at Nymeo Field at Harry Grove Stadium. Following the 2018 season, the Keys were named the winner of the Carolina League’s Complete Franchise Award. This goes to a team in the league which demonstrates franchise stability and significant contributions to its community and the league. In 2019, the team will host the Carolina League All-Star Classic presented by Visit Frederick.

    • I realize Im a "come lately" on this post, and I also realize a teeny weenie sample size is really nothing to get too excited about...but man, that kid has a good arm. I spoke to Palmer off the air and he told me EVEN if the gun was jacked up, he was easily throwing 98  with some movement. And he showed poise and smarts. Palmer's quote"really early, but I was impressed. That was an easy windup and he surprised me with that kind of velocity. Kid has a great arm."...Please...baseball Gods...Let SOMETHING BE GOOD going forward this year!
