Hyde, where you at?

I don’t know, I watched the entire game. I think there are some coaching lessons but I’m tired of seeing them bring Givens in for more than an inning. If i were Elias, i would tell Hyde that if Givens comes in for an inning, he doesn’t come back out or you will be gone July 31 when Givens isn’t traded. How about Cashner tonight?  Looked pretty nice tonight and hitting 97 in the 6th. 

Like I have said before, the way Hyde manages the bullpen makes me appreciate Buck a lot more.

Not like Buck didn’t leave people in too long. Clearly gassed starting pitchers, relievers lacking command. It was different with Buck because his job was to win games. In my opinion, Hyde’s job is to develop pitchers and to increase/preserve trade value.

What would earl do?

I would call the 25-man together DFA guys, send down guys, call out guys, and reinforce To them that they suck, we know it,”...and you’re only here as long as you suck less than the next guy, and tonight you didn’t so you’re gone!”

Sorry, but I missed the end of the 8th inning.   Why was Armstrong removed?   I just don't understand why Givens keeps getting sent out there in the 8th inning. 

Exorcising the Buck demon.  Not working IMHO.

Pulling Armstrong was certainly questionable there, but I won’t kill Hyde for that one because Givens has been on a roll and most nights is easily capable of getting 4 outs.

That was one of my biggest pet peeves with Buck. So many times he left a starter in the game one batter too long.

And yet his bullpen was near the top in IP pretty much every year.   You can only go to the well so often.

Buck was usually pretty good at letting his bullpen guys get enough rest in between appearances.  Which was amazing due to the mediocre starting pitching.

He said on postgame he liked the Givens matchup. 

I thought at the time it was a bit odd. I could see if tying run was at the plate.

For me, it's not the bullpen stuff.  It's easy to 2nd guess bullpen moves especially when they don't work out.  It's the easiest thing for an armchair manager to do.

My big issue from last night guys making stupid mental errors.  Not seeming to know what to do in certain situations.  

Some of us have said we like watching this team....and I do, even though they suck.  Much more interesting than last years squad.

That said, they look like one of the more dumb teams I can remember.

Maybe I’m wrong but I don’t think what happened last night has been a theme of the season. 

The one DH in Chicago was messy the one game in Cleveland was bad. 

They need to avoid garbage like last night. It ruins even the die hard fans enjoyment of this team.

If I was the O’s manager, last night’s play would have sent me into rage mode.

Well, you brought up a few moments of stupidity.  I feel like there are more.  

If the goal is to get this team trained up and developed, part of that has to be situational awareness and having your players know what to do.

    • o   Diamondbacks starting pitcher Merrill Kelly was originally drafted out of high school by the Orioles, in the 37th round of the 2007 MLB draft. He opted for college instead (Yavapai Community College), and was drafted by the Indians in the 22nd round 2 years later in 2009 ........ but he again opted not to sign to remain in college, this time transferring from Yavapai Community to Arizona State.  One year after that (2010) he was drafted by the D-Rays in the 8th round, this time signing for a $125,000 bonus. After working his way up to the AAA-level in the 2013 and 2014 seasons, he went to play in Korea from 2015 through 2018, and it resurrected his career ........ he wound up signing a 2-year, $5.5 Million deal with the Diamondbacks this past December, and he has clearly asserted himself as a mainstay in their starting rotation.   o

    • Here are the current standings... updated after Monday's (7/22) games: Win % is the key, not Games Back.  The O's have reclaimed the #1 pick, as of now.
    • We made too many mistakes on defense and couldn't cash in some early opportunities.
    • Not blaming them at all. I understand why they moved on from him. Some guys just take a little longer to figure it out. He was also snakebit by having to play in Norfolk too.
