The Silver Lining Report: Game 49/162 (O's lose 7-5)

Recommended Posts


  • 🦄Richie Martin: FIRST BIG FLY BABAAAAAYYYY. Get 'em Richie. And off CC no less. Tacked on another single while he was at it. 
  • Renato Nunez: Smacked a curveball into the CF seats for a 2-run shot. Got them back in the game. Alas, it was not enough to spur a rally. He did walk in this one, too, which is probably a good sign for that slump. 
  • Hanser Alberto: RBI double. Hanser's line against LHP? .426/.426/.617/1.043  😳
  • Gabriel Ynoa: I'll give him some credit for pitching 2.1 and giving up just the 1 ER. It's an improvement based on his recent games. The team really needs him to give some quality long relief innings, and this basically counts. Not ready to give up on Ynoa yet. 
  • 🦄Branden Kline: Nice outing! He hit 98! Branden is hanging in there at the ML level and that's great. Maybe one of the more underrated good things to happen on the team this year. He still needs more innings before we can make a call, but he tossed 1.2 scoreless innings in this one against a potent lineup, and got 2 Ks. You know what? Unicorn for Branden. 
  • Shawn Armstrong: LOL Mariners. It never gets old. 0.96 ERA since coming over. 
  • Brandon Hyde: Proved he is not just Mr. Positivity. Did not mince words after this one. I would normally say Straily should be worried, but Hyde repeated that this is what they got. But he's not going to sit there and brush it all off - he voiced some displeasure and I applaud that. It's getting silly out there. 
  • Mike Elias: Great interview recently which, if you've been feeling a little beat down lately, should provide some pep in your step. The win-loss record is what it is, but good things are percolating in the minors and in the front office. Stay the course!
  • Errors: 0
  • Yankees: Didn't score the last 4 innings of this one, at least.

Once again, the rope-a-dope, except when Ali used it, he actually kicked butt. 

ESPN has a headline about how the O's are making Gleyber Torres season for him.  In the article, Hyde doesn't sugar-coat it ""There's definitely a pitching plan [against Torres]; it's definitely not to throw the ball in the middle of the plate -- and we just continue to do it."  (  http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/26803693/yanks-torres-ups-season-hr-total-vs-o-10 )

OK, you insist on silver linings so here's one - that was game 11 vs NYY, only 8 more to go, 7 of which are in August and then it's over.

The yanks are lucky we are catching them without Stanton, Judge, Didi, & Andujar.


Phenomenal thread, by the by.
