Also shows nice conviction IMO that Hyde went ahead and made that move. Unpopular, but certainly plenty of justification for it. And he didn't deliberate with it.

Hyde made the right decision, and I think most big league managers would do the same thing.

Im sure Hyde and Hess had a private meeting last night behind closed doors and I suspect Hess will be fine, and I dont expect him, in the heat of the moment to be thinking long term health, either.

Shame the pen couldn't maintain the no-no.

Brings back memories of the 3 pitcher no-no that the Birds threw against the As.

Honestly, the complaints about pulling Hess last night are some of the worst, ill-founded criticism regarding a game related move since I've been at the Hangout - since 2002.  

If folks can't get understand that this season is about player development, then they can miss the boat.  It will leave without them.  

How far up the risk ladder should the Os go in placing individual accomplishment over player health?  I wouldn't even get on the first step on that ladder and it appears our FO is in sync with that.  

The haters will hate, regardless of whom does whom to what.

We know this is going to be a long season.

But, dangit, 3-1 and taking the series against the Stankees, should have people doing the Happy dance.

The fans were vocal, they wanted change.

Ownership gave them change, and now its time to let them show us they can or cant do the job.

Until then, watch and enjoy what we can.

Thanks, I stand correct.

My memory is getting old on me.

I remember that game, I caught it on the radio, and it was pretty incredible.

What I want to know is which one of the four you forgot?

I admit, I was all over Hyde in the game thread but had forgotten that Hess was on short rest. If anyone is to blame, I suppose it is Cashner for failing to make a quality start.

Milacki was also involved in another amazing game that year, a 3 hit shutout of the Twins in which he faced the minimum 27 due to four DPs and a CS. I was there because my friends dad was a Twins fan.

I get the argument to leaving Hess in. It's a lost season, most don't think Hess is a big long-term piece (though he could be a serviceable back-end starter). A no-hitter would be the highlight of the season BY FAR. On an emotional level it would make sense to leave him in, but it would be a big risk with little reward as he still needed eight outs. It's not like he was just a few outs away.

I also understand the argument that he was at 82 pitches, but this early in the season, players are often on lower pitch counts as they continue to ramp up. He also threw 42 three days prior. I can see the argument for extending him an extra 20 pitches to 100, but does 20 pitches get you through 2 2/3 innings? Not likely.

All in all, I would have liked to see Hyde manage to keep the no-hitter after Hess left and tried for a combined no-no. That would have meant someone other than Arujo, but I don't really see that the decision making was egregious. The likelihood of getting a no-hitter with Hess (or combined with the better bullpen arms) was slim so I don't really have a problem with him not straying from the process to try and make it happen.

I have to question bringing in Hess to pitch out of the pen opening day, when he had a scheduled start coming up. But then again, Hyde knows our bullpen is pitiful...5 runs last night.

    • Yeah, it's 84. 50 (base) + 22 (22 outs) + 6 (completed 5th, 6th, and 7th innings) + 10 (strikeouts) - 2 (for 1 hit) - 2 (for 2 BB). 
    • Strikeouts count for a lot in game score.   Personally I’d prefer a complete game shutout with fewer K’s to a 7.1 inning shutout with 10 K’s, but I’m certainly not complaining about Wojo’s outing.   Edit: Just saw BarclaySouthway’s post indicating the game score was 84, not 94.     That seems more likely.  
    • Yeah, that's weird because Wojciechowski's game log has yesterday's outing as a game score of 84. Link That was a great performance, but 9th all time while only going 7 1/3 just doesn't sound right to me.
    • Absolutely.   I thought during the game I heard Gary Thorne say something about New York, though I may not have heard correctly.
    • You very clearly stated her value was her looks and not her intellectual contributions to the broadcast which probably says more about you than it does about her.  Best of luck to Sara. 
    • Hunter interviewed her on the radio pregame, and she said that she was not yet able to reveal what her next job would be but she would be soon. So this looks more like she is leaving for another opportunity then MASN getting rid of her.
    • Game 98, July 21 There were some excellent defensive plays in yesterday’s one hitter, four of which I’ll mention here. - With nobody out and a runner on 1st in the 6th inning, Chris Davis gloved a hard-hit ball over the bag, stepped on the edge facing home plate, took one more step towards home as he pivoted, and fired a strike to 2B that allowed Villar to apply the tag and complete a DP.  Davis has always been very good at feeds to 2B and this was a good example. - With Givens in the game in the 9th, Devers laced a rising liner to RF that Mancini went back on and almost misjudged it but he leaped and made a nice outstretched catch. - The next hitter hit a ball in the RCF gap but Wilkerson raced over and made a nice backhand catch while running pretty much full speed. - The final hitter of the game hit a ground ball in the 1B/2B hole, but Chris Davis made a diving stop and an accurate flip to Givens, who hustled over to cover 1B on the play.    The defense was in a RH pull shift, so Davis was about halfway between 1st and 2nd when he made the stop.    The stop, the accurate throw from his knees at that distance, and Given’s presence of mind to get to 1B on a ball hit that far towards 2B were all very impressive.
