    That doesn't seem all that outrageous. It is just a piece on the series from the prospective of the Yankees.

    What I want to see is the Orioles running through the tape. Sure I’d like to see them grab a playoff spot, but more so, I’d just like them to play decent baseball to the end. I’d consider that to be pretty significant progress.

    #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970, the Baltimore Orioles won for a third day in a row by beating the Boston Red Sox 3-2. Dick Hall was the beneficiary of a Davey Johnson two-out homerun in the top of the 9th inning and as such, recorded his 9th victory of the season. Johnson finished the day 2 for 4 with 1 run scored and 2 RBI. Paul Blair also went 2 for 4 with a double, a homerun, 1 run scored and 1 RBI. Tom Phoebus started for the Birds and lasted 6.0 innings, having given up 2 runs on 4 hits while walking 3 and striking out 3. BOX SCORE

    That was the best, smartest of the sports discussion shows. And they axed it and kept screamfests and jokefests with the likes of Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless and Kornheiser and the one with that old Cuban guy.

    The catch by Conforto was a major difference-maker, but so was the catch by McNeil on Iglesias' ball leading off the inning. If that ball dropped in, Iglesias would have scored as the result of the subsequent walk and two hit batters, and then Ruiz' ball would have produced another run, since it would only be the second out and Nunez would have scored easily from third. McNeil's catch saved at least two runs for the Mets. Alberto never batted in the 6th, so he couldn't have bunted in that inning. The Orioles couldn't have brought Holaday in when they were leading by 6-1, because they never led by that margin. They led by 5-1 and 6-3.

    What is often forgotten about 30-3 is the fact that it was game 1 of a double-header. Game 2 saw Orioles pitchers give up another 9 earned runs. All 39 runs were earned on 8/22/07. Oddly enough Sammy Sosa and Nelson Cruz both got hits for the Rangers in game 2. I only remember these facts because I was at both games with my Dad.

He relieved Lew Krausse in the 2nd inning after Krausse had allowed three runs. He then pitched 17 innings, allowing 29 hits and 14 runs, picking up the win in relief. He faced 87 batters, and threw an estimated 224 pitches. In relief. Our old friend Russ Ortiz of the '06 Orioles makes the list from his time in San Francisco. The only pitcher from the past 40 years.

    I think folks have a skewed view on how much impact a catcher has on run prevention. Poor framing and sub-optimal pitch calling isn't going to result in six runs. That of course is assuming Sisco did any worse in those things than Holaday would have.

    The singular incident we might remember as the high water mark of a fun flirtation with contention. Another Akin-Cole upset would put the excitement back where it was, but the playing with house money aspect of it is gone tonight, and that's an awfully big ask. How bad are the Mountcastle second guesses if he ends up a strong 2nd to Luis Robert, and he leads the team through hanging tough 18 more days and missing the 8 seed by a couple games?

    I don't think they sock away O'Day's $10 million in a rainy-day fund, but I also don't believe that they're slashing salary as a nefarious plot to line their own pockets. I have just as much proof as you do to back up my opinion, which is really nothing. It's speculation. I do think it's naive to think that ownership shouldn't value lower salary commitments during a full gut and rebuild. I also don't think Gausman himself was ever going to bring back a top 5 organizational prospect from any team. He wasn't that kind of trade chip. I think you're frustration is valid, but I just have a different perspective on it. I'm pretty pleased with the ownership hand off.

    You keep beating this horse but I don’t think I’ve seen any data on your end to support it. Orioles starters have gone 4.4IP per start which is below the league average and in the bottom 3rd of the league. Even in a shortened season with expanded rosters, it’s not a great idea to expect the bullpen to go 4+ innings every night. Everyone would like Hyde to know exactly when his pitchers have had it and pull them accordingly, but it clearly isn’t that easy. And even then, he may know and be weighing the fact that the bullpen is tired or will be tired after playing 4 more games in a row.

    Sure, there were unusual cases where a guy was blocked by a Hall of Famer or three and stayed in AAA forever because the Orioles knew they could call them up whenever they wanted (prior to Rule 5 eligibility) and keep them forever. Of course then free agency happened. From 1954-75 the Orioles had 40 players who were in the majors from 17-21. Basically two a year came up at 21 or younger. In the 45 years since then they've had 15 players who were in the majors at or before 21. Instead of two a year it's now one every three years. Yes, I think the single biggest driver to keeping players on the 3-5 years in the minors plan is making very sure that by the time the clock starts they're fully ready to contribute in the majors from day one. Adley Rutschman could almost certainly put up a .650 or .700 OPS with good defense in the majors now. He'd be better than half the catchers in the league. Probably about as productive as Severino's career numbers, or Sisco. But the Orioles hope in a year or 18 months he'll be a middle-of-the-order hitter, and they'll have him for six years as that.

    Ultimately I think worrying about whether Hays is for real or not is pointless. None of the other options can play centerfield, McKenna clearly isn't ready (and he is a lot more questionable to ever be a productive player than Hays is) and the O's aren't going to go out and sign another centerfielder. Hays has a much stronger track record than Mullins at all levels of professional baseball, so if he is healthy he is going to play. We will find out in time whether he will be any good and can stay healthy. Hopefully McKenna puts up a great season next year at AAA and it won't be Hays' job by default, but until then, Hays is penciled in as the 2021 centerfielder. Santander is going to get every chance to be a starting corner outfielder next year, and all indications are that Mountcastle isn't moving to first any time soon. So DJ Stewart either needs to pick up a first baseman's glove to increase his versatility, or look forward to mostly DHing next year, with the occasional start when Mountcastle and Santander have a day off.

    Why can’t he have one with Davis? “Davis, I’m sitting you except for late-inning defense. Now get out.”

    DD made a bunch of bad moves here, particularly at the end. Bad trades, burning high value draft picks for bad players, letting Cruz and Markakis go and replacing them with Trumbo and Snyder. It's pretty obvious now that he is not on the hook for the Davis deal but I think if you average out DD's good moves with his bad moves I think you get an average to below average tenure as GM here given the state of things when he left. Seems like people are way quicker to give him the benefit of the doubt than Elias so far when Elias is literally in the process of fixing the previous regime's mistakes.
