60 games...largely against AL EAST.  No way the O's win 20.  Am I wrong?  In 2019 they played to 54-108 or .333.  This year, they have traded away talent, still lack pitching and will play essentially against AL East, all of whom will be miles better than Baltimore.

20.5/60 would be a .341 record.  Certainly stranger things have happened.  But I'd be pleased with 15 wins and I think the true over under should be 18.

But I aint a gamblin man so that's just speculation....

Lots of posters saying pitching will still be terrible but it has a chance to be better IMO. A healthy Cobb can give you Bundy's stats. Means and Wojo repeat last years stats but Milone and LeBlanc have a good chance to improve on last years dregs that got rotation starts. Your bullpen expands so you only need 4-5 innings from SP and there are a lot of 1-2 inning arms in the pen. I'm not saying they will be good, just better than 2019. With improved defense there should be fewer blowouts. We will struggle on offense but get to see what the young bats do against ML pitchers.

Sometimes I wonder if the O's pitching staff was so bad because of the tipping of pitches through tech. With the league at least giving lip service to it. Maybe all the homers O's pitching gives up will subside. One can hope I guess.

And that the MFYs were stealing signs.

Along with Toronto, Bosox, etc.

Seeing the O's go over 20.5 wins wouldn't surprise me in such an unusual season.  I wouldn't bet on it, but getting 21-25 wins or so should be in the realm of expectations.  A lower realm, granted, but on the board at least. :P

What makes this shortened season more interesting is there is a greater chance of a "hot streak" by one team having a greater impact. A team, like the O's, could surprise everyone and have a greater chance at the playoffs

They’ve done no better than 24-36 in any 60-game stretch over the last two years.

Doesn't have to be the Os. Just an underdog, an unexpected team.

Someone like the Red Sox?

    • Bundy is a decent comp, but he's been able to log innings at a consistent rate since his Tommy John.  Harvey seemingly can't go 10 innings without having tightness in his arm or something and having to be shut down.  He had to be shut down last year, he had to be shut down this year.  I'm too lazy to look up his entire injury history but I don't have any confidence that he can throw a lot of innings out of the bullpen without having issues.   But Bundy's arm isn't Harvey's arm.  They're two separate entities and should be treated as such.  Comping injury probability is tricky because everyone has different DNA, everyone has different issues.  
    • So you think a platoon of Valaika (-0.1 rWAR this year, -0.6 rWAR last year) and Wilkerson (-1.0 rWAR last year and taken off the 40-man roster this year) would outperform Alberto (0.4 rWAR this year, 2.9 rWAR last year)?     I recognize they might improve their numbers in a platoon situation, but I don’t think it’s very likely they would increase them by enough to outperform Alberto, and of course you’d have to use two roster spots to do it.    As to finding someone better on the waiver wire or a cheap purchase, I asked who you wanted and don’t have an answer.     What this comes down to is you don’t think Alberto is as good as his WAR figures say he is, because he’s had bad splits vs. RHP the last two years.    We simply disagree about that.    I think the numbers have been a fair reflection of Alberto’s value.    I’d peg him as a 1-2 WAR player for next year, and at $3 mm, that’s not bad.    As to Bannon (also mentioned by SG and Philip), I am interested in him long term but he’s had very little AAA experience (20 games), struggled in the AFL last fall and wasn’t given a 60-man roster spot this year so I doubt the team is ready to roll the dice on him     It’s a shame the minor league season wasn’t played, because if it had he’d either be in the majors right now or at least we’d know more about whether we could pencil him in for 2021.
    • He hasn't. That doesn't mean he can't. No point in being doom and gloom about it. Look at Bundy. He was never what he once was but he has gone on to a productive career. There is all the more reason to think that could be the case with Harvey due to the freakish and unrelated nature of several of the injuries. 
    • Agreed. Ruiz isn't good enough though, so I'd move Alberto to 3B and sign Schoop (or someone similar) to play 2B.
    • Sums it up perfectly. As tantalizing as he is, as good as his stuff is, I really don't see the need to keep giving him chances.  And I'm sure that the trade value is low, it's not like we're the only ones who understand what's going on with him but we need guys that can stay healthy.  Unfortunately, he can't.
    • I didn’t see it but I like that he threw 72% of his pitches for strikes and that he had a swingstr% over 20%.
    • I have no idea what he looks like defensively but offensively, his numbers seem to be fine...at least enough to give him a chance while waiting on a guy like Vavra. Alberto isn’t a guy I care if he’s here or not.
