  1. Game Notes: Orioles played 6 games in Buffalo last year, including the final 3 of the season. The Blue Jays won 4 of the 6. The Orioles have lost 19 games in a row, 4 short of the major league record of 23, which is held by the Diamondbacks and is still active. The Diamondbacks begin a 6 game road trip in San Diego tomorrow night. The second game of the series will be started by Alex Manoah, who gave up a bunch of HRs to the Orioles Saturday and then was ejected for throwing at Maikel Franco. Manoah was suspended for 5 games due to the incident, but I guess he is appeal
  2. Don't even pay attention, it's part of Philip's shtick. A month ago or so he said he'd like to trade Mountcastle but it was impossible because he "has no trade value"!
  3. Gametime: 7:07 pm Forecast: 75 degrees, no precipitation Matchup: Dean Kremer (R) vs Anthony Kay (L) Lineup 1. Cedric Mullins (L) CF 2. Trey Mancini (R) DH 3. Ryan Mountcastle (R) 1B 4.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (R) DH 4. Teoscar Hernandez (R) RF 5. Randal Grichuk (R) CF 6. Cavan Biggio (L) 3B 7. Lourde
  4. I believe that Elias & company have some sort of criteria for promoting guys to various levels, including the major leagues. These guys are too metrics oriented not to have something like that. And we don't know what they are, and they probably aren't solely based on stats that we see. They probably have goals that they want players to achieve at each level and a sample size large enough to make their assessment of whether those goals have been met to be valid. And yes, they probably also factor things like service clock in some cases, though I don't think it is with nearl
  5. I think there's something about the Sanchez situation we don't know. Something negative about him, either as a player or a person, that they discovered after he had been in camp a month. No idea what.
  6. I don't think he would have even been brought in in a "normal game". He was brought up to be the last man in the pen, the role Sceroler had filled. They guy who comes in when the win probability is already under 5% so he can't really hurt our chances.
  7. I don't know. To give Mancini an inning of rest? I don't recall any play in this game where Trey could have gotten dinged up.
  8. So is Pedro gonna play 1st or will Mountcastle move from DH to 1B, which would mean our pitcher would have to hit if we bat around in the 9th?
  9. Seems like Valaika hits enough doubles here and there to make you think hey this guy is a backup infielder with a decent amount of pop in his bat. But then you check the stat line and he's OPSing .537. it "feels" like it should be higher than that.
  10. I got home from work just in time for what I think was Jannis's third pitch. So some of you might be able to say you saw his entire major league career tonight, but I cannot.
  11. Well, it won't be Stevie in the 9th. He came in for Galvis. Jannis might be going the distance now
  12. We are once again getting killed on time of possession this game. Our innings go by in a blink of an eye and theirs last forever
  13. For who? Means, Zimm, and Valdez all look to be on the IL through the All Star Break. Who's next? (I mean in the Elias-based reality, not who the fans want to see. Grayson won't be on the mound at OPACY in the next couple weeks).
  14. Eshelman did NOT get the first two batters out. Only inning all night Houston didn't start with 2 out and no one on.
