It was a real joy to watch last night's game.  Means' starts are becoming must-see TV for me.

After suffering a 4-game sweep at the hands of the lowly-regarded Florida Marlins, the Orioles picked themselves up off of the deck and clobbered the defending world champion Washington Nationals.

The local bragging rights are nice.  Fun to be able to talk down to my Nats buddies for a change.

Last time we had a great Friday night shutout win like this was against Cleveland in June of last year.  We won 13-0.

The next night we won 13-0 against the Indians AGAIN, I believe it was the highest scoring pair of back to back shutout wins in major league history.

I went to about 8 or 9 Orioles games last year, but somehow I was at those back to back games.

I was texting back and forth with a couple Nats friends during the game, I guess that's what passes for a Friday night social life in the year of Covid-19.

They lost interest around the 4th or 5th inning.

Hey, I was at one of those games, too.

Nice to see Means right the ship a bit. His ERA is still not good at 6.58, but his WHIP is a very respectable 1.23 (finished 2019 at 1.14). If he can get his ERA in the high 4s by year end, that would be amazing, considering how much of an impact that first game against the Yanks undoubtedly has.

It would not be that hard to do, considering how few innings he’s thrown (26).    Assume he gets four more starts and throws 22 IP (5.5/game).    If he allowed 7 ER in that span (2.86 ERA for those four games), that would take his ERA to  4.88.    Difficult, but not impossible.

There are 19 days left in the season including today.  To get 4 more starts he's have to go on 3 days rest once.

Oops, you’re right.   It would be very tough to get his ERA under 5 in 3 starts.    He’d have to allow a total of 4 ER or less over the three starts to have a shot.

But he's lined up for our first playoff game in Oakland!

Welp, with yesterday's performance (6 IP; 1 ER), he's cut his ERA down to 5.63 with a 1.19 WHIP. 

If he were to have the same outing next turn through the order, he would cut into the high 4's (4.97 ERA), assuming I didn't botch the math.

    • The answer is so obvious that “yellow” shouldn’t even have been an option. BTW when I first saw this I initially thought the first option was “Nate’s HAIR is called Fair.” And I was, like,”well duh. Of COURSE it’s fair. He’s Blonde.” If we subtract the no-brainer answer, Nate’s home run would be my choice.  in 2014, even without Manny, we won 96 games, and the Royals were so lucky that I’m not sure a phalanx of archangels could have beaten them. In 2016, we were enjoying a dead cat bounce,  and even if we’d pulled off the WC game, it’s doubtful we’d have gone any farther. But in 2012, we had a great team, we were on the rise, and the Yankees had serious problems. I’m not sure we’d have gone on to win that game 5, but golly, that would have been one of the all time sweet memories, regardless of what happened next.  
    • That’s the one I would choose if it was an option. The 1996 ALCS might have swung differently if Richie Garcia does his job.
    • They all sucked! But I’m going with Nelson Cruz.   Also ...missing is the Mayer interference not called!
    • The bigger impact was the repercussions of the mistake internally. I feel like Angelos got gun shy in free agency after the Albert Belle deal. But with the Glenn Davis trade they gutted the depth of a team that had trouble developing talent. As a kid after Cal Ripken there was Boddicker , Mussina, and a whole lot of disappointment in player drafting and development.
    • I know most will say Chris Davis but some things cannot be measured  by cold hard dollars.  The Glenn Davis trade not only  was lopsided with the talent the Franchise gave up for him, but also the psychological damage it did to the fan base.  Glen Davis was to be the RH power hitter needed, it seemed like forever,  and was thought to be a sure thing, but was not to be.  I know I felt crushed for such a long time by how that turned out.  We all make mistakes and both of these situations were mistakes,  big time.                        
    • Would you say the Padres did or does the presence of Tatis change the dynamic?
    • I'm in the Manny wasn't getting extended anyway camp. Honestly if the O's had extended Manny instead of Davis where would they be? They would have traded him for a minor return is my guess.
