His numbers look almost identical to 2011.  So... Cy Young 2023?

My pet theory is that Crack-up didn't have the same visceral impact on Arrieta's chi as Helplessness.

Arrieta has been pitching worse as the season has been progressing, but his ERA+ is 102 which is nearly identical to his 104 from last year.  

He still as a ways to go to reach his Orioles level of bad.

Was at the Pirates Brewers game tonight.  The game featured some former O's and farmhands.

The two starters were Zach Davies (Parra Trade) and Steven Brault (Snider) trade.  Both trades I hated at the time.  Davies pitched well, giving up 1 run in 5 innings without his best stuff.  Brault also pitched well, getting no help from his catcher but left in the 5th with an arm injury.

The game also featured Matt Albers, who did his job and Josh Hader who got the Brewers out of a jam and then worked through the next inning.

Oh, and not Orioles related.  The pirates scored 5 in the 9th to tie it, gave up 1 in the tenth, and then lost with 2 runners on and a starting pitcher pinch hitting because they had used their bench up.  I got a lot of nasty looks when I said this is why the NL needs the DH, because I don't want to see a good game end because a pinch hitting starting pitcher cant catch up to 95 mph heat.

You could accomplish the same thing by strictly limiting all MLB teams to 9 or 10 pitchers.  At least then we wouldn't have to be sitting in our rocking chairs in 2060 hearing NLers whine about having to have the DH.

Mike Yaz coming back down to earth at .243/.296/.435/.731, 93+. 5 doubles, 5 homers, 16 RBIs in 115 ABs. Decent defense.

Going to be checked out over the break for bone spurs.

Whoa, Walker laying the wood.  

That’s a smash for a home run he clearly went the other way on. His swing is inside out!

Baseball can be a funny game.   Two guys who clearly weren't good enough to make the 47 win Orioles last year, are now playing for the Yankees, who have won 57 games at the All Star Break.

Nestor Cortes and Breyvic Valera.

Valera, part of the return for Manny, looked OK with the Os last year. Might have hit better than Martin (or the guy we dropped in ST) but it wd have meant moving VIllar to SS.

Once Valera showed he couldn’t play SS it was going to be tough to have him on a roster because we’re going to have a “short” bench for the foreseeable future.

Can I just say if you told me 10 years ago that Matt Albers would still be pitching in professional baseball, I'd have laughed in your face. 

Credit to him, man. He's been in the game 13 years and has basically only gotten better since his Orioles stint.
