It wouldn't be.  Not everything needs to have significance.  

Apparently.  :)

I understand where you're coming from, and I know I'll get blasted for this (I also really don't care) but to me, 95 mph is 95 mph.  And if that 95 mph pitch is coming on the 85th pitch in the 7th inning with a comfortable lead...or if that 95 mph pitch is coming on the 85th pitch in the 5th inning...they still threw 85 pitches in a game and were hitting 95.  The only difference is that in the first instance, he's gotten more rest between innings.  

A 12 pitch battle with Mike Trout and a runner on third, I would argue, is more mentally taxing than physically taxing.  It takes a lot more mental energy and strength to bear down and keep attacking in that situation, way more than a 4 pitch at bat that results in a strikeout.  But as I said, if that 85th pitch is coming in the 5th or 7th, 95 is still 95. 

Yeah, I'm not really up in arms or anything about the decision, but I do have to point out that mental energy is, in fact, energy and contributes to physical fatigue. At least my high school bio teacher would say so.

Took care of that for you.   This thread is off the rails!

I think there was probably an "80ish" pitch limit.   Tony pointed out in the game thread that he had never gone over 65 in spring training.    And he threw 42 pitches on Thursday.

The last out of the 6th and first out of the 7th was hard hit.   There was also a pitch in that first at bat in the 7th where he missed Sucre's target by so much that Sucre gave him a funny look..   I think that was all a factor.

I think by the time he got to the 7th approaching 80 pitches, they knew there was no way he was going to go 9.   So it became a matter of when to yank him.   And waiting for fate to make the decision by allowing a hit rather than making the best decision for Hess isn't how the new Orioles are going to operate,.

I agree.  And I think it was certainly best for Hess.  And as I mentioned, I had forgotten the Thursday pitches......And....Even if it had cost us the game, I still would think that.  Which it almost did because Hyde had to have a pretty good idea that Araujo was likely not going to be as good as Hess was even at 80 pitches.   And that is ok too. 

But the new Orioles drove Mychal Givens arguably past anything he did in the spring or in his career....was that truly what was best for Givens?  I am not sure it was...it was best to try to win that game. 

 I don’t think second guessing the manager means anybody here ever wants our guy to get hurt just as I don’t think pushing Givens maybe too far meant we didn’t have his interest in mind.   Because it is still unpredictable...he could tear something on pitch 81 rather than 82.

The question that is impossible to answer is if Hess only went one inning Thursday then what would have happened tonight?  What is his pitch count then?

That's interesting, and I'd agree.

And Moose. I was talking life not just the baseball. Taking the wrong turn or going home to change shirts is often more relevant to the future than a planned series of actions.

How can that be true when Chance is in the minors?  C'mon weams, catch up!

Tell you what...I'm pissed. If you aren't something is wrong with you. But I get it. He pitched opening day, he's young, he wasn't going to make it. But still disappointing. I wont agree with anyone that doesnt say pitch 90-120 is all adrenaline without any basis on future, it might be his only chance. And if he gives up 1 hit soon he's gone. But good win

Oh man, that's a good time.  Day drinking followed by Cafe Du Monde beignets the following morning.

    • 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.
