vs. MARINERS, 8/11

Recommended Posts

Anyone want to argue again whether Reimold is a good fielding player? Good Lord. Cruz probably catches that.

Even Nolan's supporters don't tend to use words like good to describe his glove.

Oh, if we only had Cruz...

can he pitch? You can't keep digging these holes early in the game and look to the offense to bail us out.

I hear he's a mean whiffle ball pitcher...

This is one of those games where Mariner's pretend they have a great offense.

Well, those things are historically very true. He was injured for parts of 5 straight years and he is the poster child for 1100 then 600 then 1100 OPS months. And again, I wanted to sign him. I thought he'd be very good this year, but I didn't even know he was capable of putting up numbers like he has put up this year.

I would have signed him, it would have been a mistake. I did not know he would peak at age 35. No one does without PEDS. No one. ever. So I could never have guessed this.

So we need a good outing to rest our bullpen? Enter Tillman and a 2.2 inning start.

Wait, didn't Chen do that last night?

I see the posts about Tillman's stuff being poor tonight, but I certainly don't see it. His stuff looks really good to me. His command is what is killing him IMO.

Which isn't surprising given the layoff.

    • 8 games left and he is now at 92 at-bats after getting 3 at-bats in each of the last 3 games (11 plate appearances total). Helps keep the at-bats down when the team can't score any runs. Would need 38 at-bats over the final 8 games to lose rookie/prospect eligibility. Mountcastle has only had 5 at-bats in 3 games thus far this season, so the chances of him getting 5 at-bats in 6 of his final 8 games are pretty much non-existent. 
    • As of 9-19 Sisco  0 PB 13 WP -3 dRS -2.7 dWAR  Overall 0.3 fWAR Severino  5 PB 15 WP -1DRS dWAR. 04 Overall .7 fWAR  I included wild pitches Because it can be debatable whether the blame should be on the catcher or the pitcher, but Sisco Is clearly better at stopping pitches. But neither of these guys will make any other team go googly eyed.
    • This is where Sisco is today the 19th. He has improved, in K and BB rats especially, but I don’t think anyone is going to be in a rush to trade anything meaningful for him. His defense remains bad and he offers nothing as a runner.  32.4 K rate .340 BABIP .235 AVG .381 OBP 125 WRC .03 fWAR
    • I’m pretty sure he would be claimed, but that would actually be good for the Orioles. If he does, he gets the benefit of coaching from the new team, and we can watch him develop, or not, on a real life stage. If it is unlikely that he does well Enough to stick, when he returns to us, we will have had the benefit of the empty roster spot, but also the benefit another team coaching, and whatever experience he has on the major league stage, if he gets that far. And when he returns to us, we will have that much more knowledge and can deal with him more effectively. Of course there’s always the risk that he makes it all the way with his new team, and I guess that’s the risk we have to take. After all, TJ McFarland has had a pretty good career throwing in the upper 80s.
    • Severino is the one of those that I can best imagine attaining some actual market value. https://blogs.fangraphs.com/2020-positional-power-rankings-catcher/ The team will need to wait out the Realmuto bidding for the good teams that need a catcher.  If we just guess the Phillies retain, the bottom-tier catching situations from this summer on clubs that perhaps mean to contend in 2021 look like: COL - happy to do business with them again DET - Schoop repping the former Oriole brand well WAS - haha.  Imagine the WS tenure helps the incumbents CIN - will try not to have a Tyler Mahle infatuation here, they could maybe use Alberto too.  Nunez as fill-in with Votto salary relief? NYM - ibid Colorado HOU - do Elias Sig still have some nuanced favorites even James Click doesn't have his arms around yet?
    • By the 1 is a fluke, 2 is a trend notion, now as the PTBNL's get named I'm curious to see if it is all July 2 guys from 2-3 years ago.  It's as if we're retroactively doing some 2018/2019 stuff. Unless of course it's a Bundy basket type pitcher we'll all not quite understand with what we have in view.
