If he can stay healthy and pitch well over the next month, maybe they can move him.  But he needs to prove that he can stay healthy.

That shouldnt be a worry here, this FO isn't moving anybody, in spite of what OPs want.

If that happens, it would be a sports management catastrophe of epic proportions.  That O's, even the O's, can't be THAT stupid.  Right?  RIGHT?!?!?!?!

Looking over the blunder of mistakes that King Peter has made over the years, and sadly yes, they could be that stupid.

The O’s have traded plenty of guys away in years when they were out of it, and I fully expect them to do so.   What they’ll get in return is another story.

Sure.    In 2000, we traded Will Clark, Mike Bordick, Mike Timlin, BJ Surhoff and Charles Johnson.   In 2001, we traded Mike Tromblay.  In 2003 we traded Sidney Ponson, who was having his best year.  In 2009, we traded George Sherill.   In 2010, we traded Miguel Tejada and Will Ohman.  In 2011, we traded Koji Uehara and Derrek Lee.   All those were July trades; there were a bunch of other guys we traded in August like Greg Zaun, Steve Trachsel, Aubrey Huff and others.

I'm not advocating we do this at deadline but Bundy is someone we need to think about this winter in a Bedard like return.

I’m fine with shopping Bundy, but by no means do I expect a Bedard-like return.   At the time, Bedard had a career ERA+ of 118, and he was coming off back-to-back seasons of 120 and 146.    And, that winter there was a severe shortage of good pitchers on the FA market.    Bundy has a career ERA+ of 105, 108 this season.   He’s not comparable.   

That said, I don’t mind seeing what’s available for him.

Damned good outing from O’Day last night.   He came in with the winning run on 3B and only one out and got a key strikeout and then a harmless pop out after an intentional walk to the immortal Ryan Flaherty, then pitched a scoreless 10th inning.    ERA to 2.70.

So no one was watching but O'day has now had two balks called against him in the last 10 years of his major league career, both in the last two years and both by the same umpire.

Last night the backlash called after the pitch was delivered, after the batter had swung and popped up the ball, and after the ball was caught.

The balk call was a "no stop" ball call and the replay clearly shows O'day came to a complete stop.  This one didn't affect the outcome of the game but its worth monitoring in the future if for nothing else than entertainment.

Pretty sure we can blame the guy yelling Balk!.

Have never understood the need for the balk rule.

Its amazing that  "Balk a day" Bob Davidson never called a balk on O'Day  but now you have an ump that's called 2 in 1 yr on a guy that's never had any.

The umpiring last night was awful. Squeezing Cashner multiple times in a row. Also initially called a foul tip on a ball in the dirt that was close to impossible to hit. While I thought it was a strike, they want on to overturn it after a conference with no replay. Seemed like a bad overturn even if the result was right. Just made you think they didn't know what they were doing.

    • MLB Pipeline did a Top 10 on their podcast this week, including shreds on I guess NCAA sophomores who like Kjerstad in February/March may have done stuff for a few weeks.  It also acquainted me with the demographics of the basket where 1-5 will be one of them. Pirates 1 - Lawlar the HS shortstop Rangers 2 - Kumar Tigers 3 - McClain, some Madrigal-sized middle infielder from UCLA, maybe/maybe not SS Red Sox 4 - del Castillo, some slugging catcher from "The U" deemed best hitter in draft Orioles 5 - Leiter (I'd be glad with this outcome for polish going towards 2022 usefulness) D'Backs 6 - Jake Hill, the LSU right-hander, non-Vanderbilt best of SEC rest.   Guessing Ben may know him some. Royals 7 - Jud Zabian, Florida OF    <mock now at 6 straight NCAA after the high school SS character who seems impossible to get to 1-5> <hosts say these Top 7 are a clear tier in whatever order they fall> Rockies 8 - Alex Vanellas, Louisville 3B Angels 9 - Marcelo Mayer, high school SS #2 Mets 10 - James Wood, IMG Academy high school OF <nary a high school pitcher in these 10, though with draft pushed back to July, the Nick Bitsko analogs born in 2003 will have some extra time to strut their stuff, in case the next Kerry Wood, Josh Beckett or Dylan Bundy can only Netflix and chill right now>    
    • I would dangle him to anyone whi would take him. I didn't want him back at any cost let alone 1.8M
    • He is so streaky that when he is in his funk he will be worse than the MIF we run out there.
    • https://halohangout.com/2020/07/13/angels-garrett-stallings-summer-camp/ An Angels fansite report when he later got to their 60 this summer cites a curve as the Junior year difference maker. Their source for that this campus story https://247sports.com/college/tennessee/Article/Tennessee-Vols-Baseball-Vols-Garrett-Stallings-selected-in-fifth-round-of-MLB-Draft-132589216/ also has the details he was their 2019 Friday night guy even with Crochet on the team. His Perfect Game blurb from high school times mentioned three-quarters to over the top arm angle, gee whiz. Who knows if he could have had Kevin Smith's 2019 in parallel universe 2020?   SEC trade imports links them, but Smith actually doing it including a little AA success is a big credit in his favor for the moment.
    • He fits the Smith/Kjerstad mold of SEC guys steadily improving (Growth Mindset?), even if some of that is demonstrated in small sample sizes.   Smith did backup his Junior Year rise up draft boards with his great 2019 for the Mets.  I am imagining entering Junior year Stallings was not a 5th or 25th round profile.   He's one more piece for the box of chocolates we'll get to open in the spring.
    • I wonder if he had a velocity spike his junior year and if that would make it less likely for him to have untapped velocity?
