Mission: Impossible?

"Your mission -- should you decide to accept it -- is to go into the Bronx and win 3 of 4 games this weekend."

Impossible?    No, just highly improbable.    But I'd like our playoff chances much better if we could pull it off.

Miley v. Tanaka

Hellickson v.  Severino

Jimenez v. Sabathia

Bundy (?) v. Gray

I'm not going to overanalyze this.    Win tonight against Tanaka (4.82 ERA, got shelled in Texas last time out but overall has been pitching very well since late July), and go from there.   Score some runs, already!

 

 

Bundy is not starting Sunday according to the Sun. 

The Orioles don’t have a day off in their next turn in the rotation, but Showalter indicated Wednesday that Bundy likely wouldn’t make his next start in turn to continue to give him extra rest.

 

“This is all designed for him to pitch in October,” Showalter said. “We’re going to continue to make sure of that. We’ve got some numbers we’re looking at. He’s in good shape right now.

 

Right-hander Ubaldo Jiménez would be in line to pitch that day, but the club could also start right-hander Chris Tillman. Showalter has shuffled Tillman and Jimenez in and out of the bullpen in recent weeks, so it’s possible he could do that again and give the start to Tillman.

In my rat's ass of an opinion, this is one of the best (and most underrate) shows ever.

The circumstances of the show were very similar to another excellent seriesRoom 222.

Wow, now that you mention it, I hadn't thought of Room 222 in several decades - just remember liking it a lot and thinking Karen Valentine was cute.  I'm gonna need to watch some re-runs.

No we have about 1.1% chance.  That is significantly better than Zero.  And taking 3 or 4 in NY as the sweep in Boston recently, would perk the chances up more.  

 

 

 

But of course 1.1% IS NOT very close to being in either.

Sorry but I already gave up on the WC for the O's.

Is Bundy pitching in the AFL?  I'm just trying to figure out where he would pitch in October?

Took the words right out of my mouth. Yes, Karen Valentine. I was probably 7 or 8 when this came out and I was in love with her from the get go.

The Orioles' last regular season game is Oct. 1. Guess Bundy must be scheduled for that one. :)

Orioles notes: O's to keep Dylan Bundy on short leash with postseason in mind.

October 3rd against the Yankees at Yankee Stadium. Could be an Oriole win but will Britton get in the game?

I wonder if the O's will shut Bundy down entirely once they are eliminated.   We'll have 12 games to go after this weekend.     Assuming Bundy starts on Monday, he'd get at most 2 starts after that, and possibly only one.   But perhaps it will be zero.

    • I guess you’re too young to remember when the goalposts were at the front of the end zone.  Or when a jump shot from 24 feet was only worth 2 points.    
    • Imposter syndrome basically means you don't feel like you belong.
    • We should probably sign a catcher huh?
    • Part of the reason why we've seen the slashing style play go away is the astroturf fields from cookie cutter stadiums and domes are all gone. The Cardinals, Astros and Royals among other teams took advantage of their home field's playing surface. That meant hitters put the ball in play to take advantage of the bounciness of astroturf, and stealing more bases because the turf gave runners an advantage. Plus you saw teams valuing speed and athleticism over bigger players that swung for the fences. I liked seeing a mix in the styles of play between different franchises, whereas today pretty much all teams play the same style swinging for the fences.  
    • Even though the 60'6" has remained the same since 1893, the distance between the average of pitchers' release points and home plate has decreased because pitchers have gotten, on average, taller and longer-limbed. And the decrease over the past, say, 50 years has been significant. (For the same reason, there's also been an effective increase in the height of the mound.) I've seen some estimates, but I can't recall them right now. Nonetheless, I think it's more likely that the effort to produce the same effect will be made by increasing the number of pitches thrown by a pitcher, for example by limiting the number of pitchers used in a game or the number of pitchers on the 26-man roster. Other sports have been much more willing to change basic rules to improve the game: pro football has moved the goalposts, changed the extra-point and kickoff rules, added overtime, and protected quarterbacks and receivers. Basketball introduced the 3-point field goal, widened the lanes and banned zone defenses. Leagues in other sports haven't held their rules as sacrosanct as MLB. It's not practical for them to change the size of their standardized playing surfaces. There have been some suggestions to raise the baskets, and there's been some experimentation with that. At least some of those showed a drop in outside shooting accuracy and an increase in rebounding and the proportion of scoring by big guys -- not the desired effect.
    • Or they need to run it again in 2 weeks!  Lol
