To be fair. Considering the starters we have. Forget the Norfolk shuttle. We need a mag lev train that gets them to Baltimore in 20 minutes or so.

Bowie shuttle. Just hit the gas.

I think that’s pretty speculative.    

Hyde straight up said the reason they had to DFA Jackson was because they wanted to add an additional pitcher. They needed an additional pitcher because the bullpen was gassed. Araujo contributed to that. Not speculative at all.

I did notice that Hyde has gone from, bullpen is doing fine to we need to stop giving up HR's. Wait a few weeks. The message will change. Stop blowing sunshine up their butts and tell them it's the Majors.

Evan Phillips?  In Fenway?  With runners on base? And a one run lead?  And for several batters until the lead has ballooned?  

 

What was that?

Learning experience.   24 year old Phillips with a 94-95 fastball with movement and a good slider put in a spot that means something.   He threw the ball well.   

Good night for the young O's.   25 year old Hess pitched well.  26 year Fry looks good.   26 year old Smith pops a two run homer.  25 year old Nunez  hit a two run homer.   Its early in the season.   This experience should pay off later in the season.     It about more than one game.

23 year old Diaz triples for Bowie.  844 OPS.   24 year old Akin goes 6 and give up 2 runs at AAA.   25 year old Stewart hit atwo run homer at AAA. Now has a 1.077 OPS.

I've been griping all season that we never try a sac bunt with runners on first and second no outs. Several opportunities so far and we never try this. Last night Boston comes up with runners on first and second no outs. They do it. Duh.

At this point the only second guessing of Hyde is why the hell did he take this job?

He got his chance to shine today - that is something right?  WTF!!!!!

Hadn’t seen that. That’s a terrible call. Just glad nobody was hurt.

That's what I was thinking. Pedroia-redux. So this type of call is not reviewable?

NY reviewed it and let the (no) call stand.  That is why Hyde erupted.

Hyde didn’t reveal where he watched the rest of the game after his ejection. He mentioned only the reasons why he argued Rafael Devers’ slide into second base and how he wasn’t trying to get tossed just to fire up his club.

He had a much better reason. And he won’t be afraid to run out there again, even knowing, as he did yesterday, that resuming an argument after a challenge is grounds for dismissal from the game.

“For me, I just felt like it was wrong,” Hyde said. “For me, they made a wrong decision and I’m not just going to allow our team to just ... I just felt like the whole thing was wrong. I felt like it was handled (wrong), I just didn’t agree with the decision in New York at all and if I disagree with something, I’ll stand up for what I believe in. I don’t believe that call was right.

“I’m going to get thrown out at times. I’m going to pick my spots, and I think when I disagree with something, then I’m going to let people know. But circumstances change and in that type of situation I go out there, I know I’m getting thrown out. But I really believe that the wrong call was made.”

I may have missed this, but why did Hyde bring up Ynoa? He’s the same one-way player, he’s not good and hasn’t been good this season.

I appreciate that he’s considered the best choice, but I don’t understand why, and haven’t seen any reasons put forward. I may have missed them.

    • An extra update on Grover, from Roch: "Grover recovered from an oblique injury suffered late in camp and was dominant in his outings at extended spring training. He didn’t allow a run in eight innings, walking three batters and striking out an astounding 22. A slow-climber with his fastball velocity, Grover dialed it up earlier than usual this year. I’m told that his heater averaged 95 mph and topped out at 100 mph. There’s room for more."
    • o   The topic is whether or not players on the Orioles would be on another Major League roster if they were not here, and you opined that Bundy would not be when I said that Dwight Smith Jr is playing well enough to at least be a 4th outfielder on a lot of other teams. Bundy's splits going through the opposition's order the first time this season is inordinately better than when he goes through it a second time, save for his last start when he was effective the 2nd and 3rd times through. There is plenty of room on other MLB rosters besides the Orioles for a pitcher whom is capable of pitching well for 2 or 3 innings, just as there is room for other MLB teams that could use Dwight Smith Jr as a 4th outfielder on their roster.   o
    • I'm not telling anyone how to raise their kids.  I don't think it's unreasonable to suggest that if a kid can't handle a normal city atmosphere that it might be a good idea if they were exposed to that more.  Or not.  Just stay in the suburbs and avoid the city environment at all costs.   I was really just comparing my experience.  Me and plenty of my friends and family have been to the stadium dozens if not hundreds of times and have had zero issues involving our personal safety.  There is perception and there is reality.  There is also culture shock.  Which I sympathize with.  But only one way to get over that.     
    • I don't have the data to back this up, but what I've observed leads me to believe the following: 1.  An MLB team's "attendance" is built largely, and increasingly, on the sale of season tickets. (Keep in mind that what we refer to as attendance doesn't reflect the number of fans that pass through the turnstile. It's the number of tickets sold.) That's especially true of "full" season tickets, covering all 81 games, and less true of multi-game ticket packages. 2.  It's a lot easier to sell season tickets in cities where there are (a) large numbers of (big professional service firms (law firms, accounting firms, management consulting firms, etc.) that are prepared to spend on client entertainment and (b) lots of wealthy individuals. Before the Nats arrived, the Orioles did pretty on the first part by attracting season ticket holders from Washington's stable of large service firms. Now they are far, far behind three of their division rivals on both scores, with no hope of closing that gap. 3. Many season ticket buyers (and again, I'm talking about full season tickets) make their decisions to buy, including their decisions whether to hang on to existing full season tickets, well in advance of the season. Those decisions are made based on someone's (and maybe not a very knowledgeable someone's) sense of how the team shapes up for the coming season and how much interest its games will generate among clients, employees and friends. A couple of bad seasons, when season ticket holders see that clients and friends aren't eager to go to those games, will drive away season ticket buyers. If the team performs better than expected, or is more exciting and entertaining to watch than was expected, it's very hard to sell enough tickets on a game-by-game basis to replace those lost season ticket holders.  4. Selling season tickets to the 2018 and 2019 Baltimore Orioles can't have been easy. the same will be true for at least a few more years.
    • Bundy average 90.7 mph on his fastball in his last start.  His fastball speed just keeps going down. We have seen this before from other players with shoulder issues.  And we know how it ends.  It is a shame as I had high hopes for Bundy.
    • o   Bundy has pitched better in his last 2 starts, particularly in his most recent one, which was his first quality start of the season. It was the first time this season that he showed effectiveness going through the opposition's batting order more than once (he in fact went through it 3 times.) Ironically, it was Smith Jr who was responsible for the 2 unearned runs while Bundy was on the mound for that start, and quite possibly for a 3rd run on a ball that he misplayed into a double to start the 4th inning.   I think that Bundy would make a number of MLB rosters as either an opener and/or a middle-to-long relief pitcher.   o
    • You cant polish a turd.  Going into the season we knew the pitching would be terrible. I am not sure why you want to blame the pitching coach.  We only had three starters and 3 relievers with any sort of success in the past.  Bundy cant throw the ball over 90 mph and Bleier hasnt recovered from his injury. That leaves Cobb and Castro for guys being worse than expectations.  Cobb was just as bad last season at this time. I am not sure what is wrong with Castro.
