vs. ROCKIES, 7/27

Recommended Posts

Ok? So that means everyone is bound to get hurt coming back? PrettyFairly sure Fernandez and plenty of others came back fine and pitched more than 70 innings.

We are posters on a message board. The Orioles can talk to doctors, experts, and are with Bundy day to day. Until Bundy goes down or gets hurt, I'm going to back what they do. If Bundy gets overworked and something serious happens than go ahead and be critical. Everyone comes back differently, didin't work with Harvey. Bundy had half a season to take it slow and get stamina up, NOW he's returning and pitching a little more. He was in 3-4 inning stints before.

No. What is means is that when you take a plan and then you throw it out the window bad things can happen.

Harvey pitched 189.1 innings last season coming off of TJ. That's the most since...Tommy John.

They had a plan and they scraped it and now his career might be over. Did the usage last year cause it? No one knows.

But I don't want any increase to Bundy's long term health risks.

Earl would have had a stroke with video replay.

Earl would have found some kid to hack their way into the command center so he could yell at the lounge chair NY umps.

Between Matt's complete inability to frame a pitch, his slowness behind the plate getting in front of balls and his molasses like speed on the basepath, Matt is playing himself out of a significant anount of money.

I agree, but I don't think 100 IP is going to increase the risk at all compared to 70 IP...I really don't. I think that's quite different than damn near 200 IP Harvey had.

Edit: Also, although DD and Buck didn't say it, I still don't see how we can sit here and say they definitely had 70 IP limit here. I'm sure their plan depended on how he came back. You think he'd be in rotation if his velo was in low 90's like it was to start the year? He has looked phenomenal and looks to be well on his way back to pre-injury form.

That question about whether you feel relief or anger if our division opponents lose, and the O's lose, too?

Tonight, it's definitely anger.

    • Might have to chalk this up to Elias. 26 man roster and we’re still playing with a 3 man bench. With the new extra inning rules do we really need all those pitchers to cover innings? We’re losing games because we need 3+ LR options at all times.    Stevie Wilkerson seems like the perfect 4th bench guy at the moment. He’s not a prospect so we don’t care about him sitting on the bench. He’s competent in the IF/OF.  He’s fast and a good base runner. He can eat an inning in a blowout by pitching. Heck, or save a game. Did that happen???
    • I said it two years ago, I'll say it again, I think John Means will start the next playoff game the Orioles play in.  
    • What’s the corresponding move to activate Hays?  Looks like just a straight swap with McKenna is likely. Sulser, Lakins, or Tate, could be an option too. With playing in an NL ballpark for two games, and having two off days, we may elect to go with a bigger bench and drop an bullpen arm. 
    • The ball was in the shadows and dropped like 5 ft outside of the shadows in RF for a hit. I think Franco probably couldn’t see it and got a bad read. A tough L. 
    • Means Is only behind Glasnow in WAR, ahead of Cole and Bieber. Good company. I hope the breakout continues. 
    • Currently, the pitching staff is 14th in WAR (in the majors), 10th best in walk rate, 17th in total ERA and 7th in BP ERA. Nice numbers considering we apparently have the worst catchers in baseball.  I’m shocked that they could be this awful defensively, game calling, framing, etc...and yet we are finding some early success after building on last year, which wasn’t as bad as suspected. It’s almost as if the catchers defense can be overcome by other factors! (Or people are just clueless as to how to actually judge a C defense)
    • The issue is that you are intentionally taking the GMs statement that the Os are not measuring success by wins as meaning something else....that the Orioles are not trying to win games. And then extrapolating that into the Orioles are trying to lose games.    That simply isn’t what is going on. And I think you know that. I think in general folks are on board with the rebuild. We are also at the point where we are about as far from being competitive as we have been in a long time.      I don’t know how much the pandemic has effected the rebuild, but minor leagues have been shut down for a loooong time.  I can’t help but think it probably cost us a full year.    I don’t know if Hyde will be the manager in 2 months or 2 years.  I really don’t worry about that at all. Right now, I just want to see the Os get better and develop talent.    I would say this is the last year the Os can continue with a mindset of we are not measuring success with wins. I think it is likely that success next year will be marked by small improvement to something along the lines of 75-80 wins.    I am trying to enjoy the moments.    The moments Mancini reminds us of what he can be. The moments Mountcastle reminds us that he could be in the mix for ROY. The moments John Means looks like a real #1 or #2. And yes the moment we get to see AR, Diaz and others crack the lineup.    It’s not the same as fretting over when Hyde rests Santander or who he pitches in the 8th or 9th. But this ain’t Toronto and whether or not we use our historically good closer in the 6th, 11th or ever. Hyde is gonna learn or he won’t. In the end, of the GM gets the talent part, getting someone to manage will be a breeze.
