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.

    • Would that just be due to attrition from players that have graduated? 
    • I'm also blaming @LookinUp as I read his interpretation, too, before looking at the cover.  
    • I do not read this headline as saying Rutschman is the no. 1 prospect in MLB.   It’s saying he’s no. 1 on the Orioles.    As to our system being “pitching rich,” of the Orioles’ top 10, 5 are pitchers; of our top 20, 10 are pitchers.   So it’s a 50/50 system and if you look around baseball, that’s the norm.   I’d say our system has slightly above average hitting and pitching right now, and it’s a slightly above average system.   I’d say we might have a little more depth once you get beyond the top 10 pitchers in the system than most teams, but we’re not overflowing with top-end pitching talent.     
    • Remember when major league baseball assumed that putting games on TV meant that nobody would come to the games and they'd go bankrupt?  Well, no, you and I don't, but in the 50s that was a common theme.  Of course now they make more money from TV and streaming than gate revenues.  Or close. As much as the Orioles have progressed the last few years an attitude like that on some things may still prevail. Or more likely they have contracts with the cable companies and DirecTV that they won't put it on streaming in exchange for more money from people who don't watch sports.
    • Am I wrong in thinking MASN could make more money making it available on streaming devices? I look at this way..the average age of the baseball fan is far older than most sports.  Most older people are not going to give up cable.  It’s “easier” than the steaming services in many ways.  It’s the younger generation that is going away from cable.  Wouldn’t it make sense to also allow those generations to see your product in different ways?
    • Yeah, I think your interpretation is most likely correct.  I didn't read it that way initially.  
    • Thanks.  Too bad.  To add to my list, I just realized last night that I don't have a good solution for BBC America without Directv or a streaming service other than Hulu.  Can't go without Dr. Who and Top Gear.  Will continue to research options...
