Mychal Givens 2019

Recommended Posts

Nice to see that he brought end to the chaos.   

Thank goodness I went to sleep after the top of the 7th and didn’t have to watch the near meltdown before him.

Bit of a high-wire act there, but ultimately, it doesn't matter how it's done, just that it's done.

Glad to see Mychal get off of this semi-schneid. Hopefully this gives him a little confidence boost and he can nail down some more games for us going forward.

(vs. RANGERS, 6/04)

 

All things considered, this may have been Givens' best game of the season so far.

When the bottom of the 9th inning started, the Orioles had a 12-5 lead, and even the most devout Rangers fan probably didn't think that their team had a prayer of coming back to win. By the time that Givens entered the game, that once-comfortable 12-5 lead was now an extremely precarious 12-11 nail-biter ........ and the Rangers had the potential tying run on base with only one out !!!

After Josh Lucas and Richard Bleier walked and got hit by what seemed like half the American League, Givens took all of 10 pitched to strike out 2 batters, and finally end the game (albeit with a bone-headed pickoff attempt in between those 2 Strikeouts.)

Givens followed that up with another solid game ........ 1.67 Shutout Innings, 1 Walk, 2 Strikeouts, and )) 25 Pitches )(17 )Strikes, )8 )Balls.

Two years in a row now where he’s been really inconsistent.

Trade value has to be relatively low at this point.

Yeah, that was horrible.    He’s having a very disappointing season.

I liked Givens since his early minor league days.

But, I have been consistent with my opinion, that Givens doesn't have the makeup to be a closer.

He does have very good stuff and can be very effective arm out of the pen.

I think he's been a bit overworked and overexposed.  Reminds me of what happened to Brach once Britton got hurt and his role was more in flux.  Just a case of where some of these guys need defined roles.  Same thing with Castro.  They were definitely more successful when we have the luxury of having defined roles, but at some point, these guys have to step up.

Not sure if you can even get  a non prospect AA type guy for him, but they need to deal him because there is no way you go to arbitration with him.

He still has good K numbers.  I think you go to arb with him, but the fact that this is even a valid concern just points out how bad he's been.

This is about where I am.  What are you gonna do, Givens?  Wow me by actually not blowing a save?
