Orioles compared to other AL East teams

Recommended Posts

Except for the Rays we haven't seen great pitching yet. We will this week with Sale and company. Rays Chris Archer is Friday night.Hasnt given up an earned run yet.

Archer has an ERA, he's given up an earned run. In fact, he's given up 3 of them, and all to the O's.

While we're having fun, the 2014 team was also 9-10 after the first 19 games. At the time, Cruz was OPS'ing .988 with 6 HR and 21 RBI.

Runs Scored: 81

Runs Allowed: 84

We were involved in 7 1-run games, going 3-4.

The most runs we scored in a single game: 14

The most runs scored against us in a single game: 11

We were shut out once (TOR) and also shut out one opponent (TBR).

Our offense was held to 3 runs or fewer in 11 of these games, in which we had a record of 4-7.

Unlike the 2015 season, we had played 3 games against non-AL East opponents, going 1-2 against Detroit.

8-5 against TB, NYY and BOS while giving up 3.6 runs per game and 1-5 against TOR giving up almost 8 runs per game. So 9-10 isn't that bad at all and while the starting pitching could have been better against TOR, overall I don't think they have been as bad as most people think.

I just hope Toronto doesn't own us all year. I don't think I could abide that.

There's a difference between being owned because the other team is better, and the other team looking better because you shot yourself in the foot multiple times. The Orioles have done that enough with Toronto already. Just have to hope they've gotten it out of their systems.

The race is very tightly packed right now, and the teams I expected to be at the bottom (NY and Tampa) are instead at the top. NY so far has been led by Tex and ARod offensively, and the rotation has gotten good work from Tanaka and Pineda. I think the Yankees will have to have miraculous health to stay in contention. Tampa's offense has been better than I expected so far (hovering around league average) and I don't think that will last. I still think these teams end up at the bottom.

We're nearing the end of April, and I think at this point every team in the AL East has been in first or at least tied for first at some point. That says to me what I've felt all along, what happens in April doesn't mean much in the grand scheme, and what everyone knew or thought they knew is either completely right or completely wrong.

Three of our five starters have pitched well. Tillman and Norris have been getting smashed. I fully expect Tillman to get on track and Norris will be replaced if he can't.

The bullpen is what concerns me. Don't have confidence in anyone other than Britton and O'Day. I think the bullpen needs an overhaul and sooner rather than later. I think replacing Garcia and Matusz with some combination of Wright/S. Johnson/Drake could do wonders.

When the starters start going deeper in games, the bullpen will get better. Until that happens it doesn't matter who you have in the pen.

Well, so much for miracles. Tanaka is out at least a month with forearm tightness. It really seems a longshot that that's all the time he'll miss.

Guess we ran into a bit of a buzz saw in New York.......that definitely didn't help our numbers. Stinks that we still have a below average pitching staff....I think our offense will pick up a bit more these next few weeks.

    • You are right..it’s not the answer I’m looking for because it’s not an answer to the question you were asked. If I ask you, what is your favorite color and you tell me a banana, that is an answer and it’s not one I’m looking for..that doesn’t mean in insulting you, it just means that trying to discuss this with you when you clearly don’t want to answer the questions and you want your agenda is a waste of time.  
    • Two milion?  You better check again.
    • I think people also have to remember where guys are in their careers. Diaz has almost 1500 MiL at bats.  He has over 700 at bats in AA alone and he has an OpS of 834 there.  Elias said that he would have been in AAA in 2019 had he not had injuries.  He doesn’t need to go to AA again.  He doesn’t have anything left there to prove.  He also just turned 24, so he is getting too old for the league anyway. Rutschman is an elite college bat.  He turns 23 in a few months.   By all accounts, he has looked great in the camps of 2020. You don’t just keep elite guys that are advanced in age and approach in the minors for that long.  It doesn’t happen and it shouldn’t happen.  If he was a 20 year old kid out of HS, it would be different.  But he’s not.  Now, he does have to perform a lot better than what we saw in 2019 but again, that goes without saying. Give him some time down there, make sure you gain the extra year this year and perhaps give him enough time to avoid Super 2 since he has so little pro experience but come early June or so, he should be ready to be here, if not sooner. The reality is, im fine with bringing him up as soon as they gain the extra year of service time in 2021.  I’m sure they will give him more time than just a few weeks though.
    • So I'm too stupid to "Comprehend" what you are asking.....But your not throwing insults! Same old Shtick!!!! I said that when Manicini was promoted it wasn't after a season where he didn't have a competitive AB. There is nothing wrong with that answer other than that is the answer you were looking for! I said Diaz season where he hit .262/807 was at AA and not AAA. So therefore the 2 circumstances are the same. Anyone with a little bit of intelligence can understand these differences (SEE I CAN DO IT ALSO!). Also ..... Diaz was a highly sought after IFA that got a 2 million dollar gift from the Dodgers that we received as a part of the Machado deal. I'd assume you'd agree that expectations should be higher for a high priced IFR or a #1 overall selection like Adley compared to your expectations for an 8th round pick that received a nominal bonus. People were "Meh" about getting Stallings (a 5th rounder) for Iglesias
    • https://www.houstonchronicle.com/texas-sports-nation/astros/article/Astros-trade-for-pitcher-Hector-Velazquez-Orioles-15442933.php You might be thinking this guy.  He was traded so fast he probably never hit the 60 man.
    • You don't think it would be shortsighted to rely on traditional counting stats to determine if a player is worthy of promotion? why even have an analytics department?
    • Zero teams ever have had a lineup composed entirely of “complete hitters”.
