Nice job by Lavarnway yesterday

Recommended Posts

I thought he did a good job behind the plate yesterday, and wanted to recognize him for that. He likely will only start another game or two for the O's, and he hasn't received (or earned) much praise. But yesterday he seemed to handle the pitchers well and did a great job suppressing the Mariners' running game.

If he can repeat yesterday's performance on Sunday and in the upcoming doubleheader, he just might find himself another major league job.

Drew two walks as well. Gunned down Cano, and I thought we had Taylor too. I saw the condensed game so I don't know what the announcers said, but it looked to me that the ball beat him, JJ caught it, and Taylor kicked it out of the glove. If that is true, Taylor is out the instant he touches JJ's glove. Anyway, best game he has had for the O's.

Don't think that's true. If the ball is dislodged on a tag play, the runner is safe. The fielder has to keep control of it until voluntarily removing it from his glove, I believe. Just like a collision at the plate.

This is correct.

Lavarnway has really played well (defensively) in the limited play time he's received.

It looked like JJ never had complete control of the ball, as it seemed to hit his glove and the ground at the same time. Palmer said he thought JJ should have been charged with an error.

    • I like Hays in left and Mullins is center.  Hays does not seem to dive as much in left.  Keeping Hays healthy is key and if playing left keeps him on the field that is what I would do.

    • Interesting historical fact... That clip in the Blues Traveler above... the two steam engines slamming into each other at high speed. That really happened. Caused a real tragedy. The Union Pacific RR or Southern Pacific of the 1870's-1880's, I forget... They were going to decommission/scrap two old Engines. So they figured... they might as well make some money off it. So they SOLD TICKETS! Fired up the two steam engines on the day, and ran them headlong into each other at full speed. They miscalculated... when the trains hit each other, boilers at full steam 212+ degrees... they sprayed rivets and metal fragments for MILES. ALL over the assembled crowd who BOUGHT TICKETS. Don't remember if anyone died but many, many bloody injuries. A tragic scene. All for the cause of a bunch of RR whores trying to squeeze every dollar out of every situation they faced. Capitalism at it's BEST!
