Nick Cafardo was just on MLB network talking about the pitching match up tonight. He quoted Ortiz as saying Matusz is one of the nastiest guys he faces and he's back to being that guy this year. Always nice to hear.

In 2010 I think that Ortiz went 0 for the season against Matusz with a ton of K's.

Yeah Ortiz was the one that questioned if Matusz was ok last season because he was different than normal. Lefties with good offspeed stuff give Ortiz fits, and BMat has his number.

Brian has made 9 starts this year. Skipping over the first 3, here are his last 6...

               Inn     H      ER      BB       K       D5/22	Bos	6.1	2	1	1	9	? 5/17	@KC	6.0	7	3	1	2	W5/12	TB	5.2	7	2	1	5	W5/7	Tex	5.0	10	7	2	4	L5/1	@NYY	6.1	6	1	1	4	W4/26	Tor	6.0	4	0	2	3	ND

Other than the Texas start... he's been looking like his old self again. That BB column is my favorite part...

With the 6 1/3 innings tonight, that gives him 50 IP on the year. That surpasses the 49 2/3 from last year. His ERA last season was 2.2-times higher than it is right now. He has the same number of strikeouts, five fewer walks...along with 23 fewer hits and only five homers compared to 18 in 2011.

Amazing turn around. He is a completely different pitcher than what he was last year.

When we realize to temper expectations, and that things take time to adjust, we will realize that Matusz really could be what we though he might be at the end of 2010. There will still be growing pains, and he will adjust, but I think he could be really really good. That said, this was one outing and he did well.

    • So trade our best performing position player in order to get prospects that don’t usually pan out… i.e Machado deal  Pass 
    • I think the Orioles wanted Manny for the playoffs.  In a noncompetitive season they may have had a different view.
    • There were some aspects of the Manny knee situation I’d forgotten.   In particular, when Manny shut down and had surgery on the second knee, that wasn’t what the team wanted him to do.   "Our original approach was to have him rest and then to try to play and then see if he could play ball. We also knew there was a chance of a recurrence. Given this injury and the time of the season, we thought that we would rest it and try to recover and come back and play for the rest of the year. But Manny didn't feel that was the best option." (This quote from Duquette was in a post by weams without a link.).   It also seems that Manny had the option of “rest and rehab” with the first knee and opted for surgery.    Here’s a link to the weams post, which is in a very long thread on this topic.   https://forum.orioleshangout.com/forums/index.php?/topic/17946-manny-machado-expected-to-have-surgery-on-knee-within-a-week/page/35/#comments Anyway, I’d say Manny really did the opposite of what Tatis is doing, i.e., favoring surgery over rest and rehab.    
    • The thing about Adam Is that he comes across as genuine. He’s not one of these arrogant jerks like “well, you remember that I never gave up a grand slam” Palmer who reminds us every single chance he gets, and shares memories like a king distributes largesse. Adam is just a guy telling stories. I wonder how he’d be as a broadcaster?
    • I'm 45 minutes in.  It's a good interview. I love Adam Jones as much as anyone else.  But he's about 10 years away from being a guy doing commentary on a broadcast and annoying the hell out of the audience like Joe Morgan, Tim McCarver, etc with the "back in my day" type of attitude.
    • Adam will always be one of my favorite Orioles. I wonder who our next Adam Jones will be. Not only from a performance standpoint but from being outspoken and keeping it 💯.
