That was a quick trip to the bullpen for him...

Wonder who will come up?

Maybe Davis to the pen?? :) Seriously, I'm wondering about the pitch selection.  Givens ended the inning by blowing fastballs past guys. The game tying homer came on the third straight offspeed pitch.   I can hear Palmer's voice in my head saying "why speed up the bat?". I know the catchers suggest the pitches, the pitcher decides, and the bench calls pickoffs. Catcher and pitcher need to go with pitcher's strength, which in Givens case is fastball.

I’m still kinda bothered they didn’t let him finish the game in Toronto. 🤷‍♂️

I wish Hyde had let him go a bit longer. At the time I was happy that Hyde had a short leash, but it’s gotten a lot longer since then.

I like Hess, and I hope when he returns, he has found a workable solution to his troubles.

Either they are making a 40 man roster move or someone from AA is coming up. All the AAA arms on the 40 have not been down long enough or pitched today like Shepard and Scott.  

The AA arms are Tate and Harvey.

I bet they make a 40 man move.

Hyde left it so that Hess can enshrine it as the high point of his career.

I.e., nothing in AA at this point.

    • DJ Stewart wasn’t just a participant. He was a driving force behind the [mini-camp] idea. “The first thing I can say is this guy will work harder than anybody else we have out there,” said first base coach and outfield instructor Anthony Sanders, who ran the camp with minor league coaches Matt Packer and Anthony Villa. “He’s putting the time in. He’s one of the guys who kind of pushed to have this camp and work on some stuff that he knows he needs to. He just needs to continue to slow the game down. In practice and everything he’s done a great job. He had a great minicamp. And it’s a big year for DJ. The way he finished off last year and the adversity he had when he struggled at the beginning and how he finished was awesome to see. “DJ, for a bigger guy he’s more athletic than people think he is.” https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2021/01/more-from-sanders-on-outfielders-at-minicamp-and-one-who-wasnt.html
    • Seems like making better choices passing the ball is a stylistic difference. 🤷‍♂️
    • There's really no where else for Mountcastle to play this season. Mancini will be the likely 1B as long as health permits, and unfortunately Davis is going to take some AB's at first. Hopefully at some point this season this will clear up some and Mountcastle can play first effectively.
    • I think that he's both an elite guy and a riskier-than-average sign.  I think that's what makes this a hard decision.  Obviously my opinion is that the risks are easily worth his talent and proven ability but reasonable minds can differ on that one.
    • He’s right.  It’s about a lot of things.  He talked about the ore snap penalties, turnovers, etc...he’s right about all of that.   However, when you have great players, they give you a larger margin for error.  The Ravens margin for error is pretty thin right now.  They need more talent on the outside.
    • I absolutely hate the concept of “you don’t have another QB, so you have to sign your guy”. Its a stupid concept that has been proven, over and over again, to be an awful way to evaluate and make decisions. You sign Lamar if you think he’s an elite guy that can carry you to win a SB.  If you don’t believe that, you don’t pay him elite money.  Elite money deals for good to very good players never work out.
    • There are a lot of good, unproven young arms in the division.
