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.

    • 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.
