vs. RAYS, 9/01

Recommended Posts

Manny needs another head on a swivel.
WTH was he thinking. Just tag whether he catches it or not.
Wtf Manny. He could have walked home.
Isn't that was base coaches are for? Did Dickerson say anything? Was Manny listening to him? There was plenty of time -- the play took forever to unfold.

LOL come on guys at this point it's kind of funny. Besides, common sense, focus, chemistry and team unity aren't things that qualify as sabermetrics so they clearly aren't important.

Based on the number of posts in this thread so far, it seems like our fans have seen the writing on the wall as well.

Dan has some work to do.

I've watched a total of 5 innings over the past 3 weeks. It's football season now and unlike the Orioles the Ravens have a front office that gets it.

Dan has work to do? Maybe he can sign another Rule 5 guy and watch Arrieta dominate.

We are damn lucky to have Buck as our manager. This comment is way off base. Maybe we are just not very good.

Well, let's put it this way.. when Buck gets fired... his former team win the world series the following year. :thumbsup1:

Hunter,the Orioles can also try to hit against the shift.Not magic or bad luck

It was bad luck Manny didn't tag, had a bug in his eye.

Joseph strikes out without (I think) seeing a pitch in the zone.

It's funny when people say that strikeouts aren't a big deal

Yea, the Ravens looked good against the Skins the other night.

The team and the coach both.

Look at the 1986 Orioles under Earl. 64-57 on Aug 23, finished 73-89.

Actually the decline began on August 6th. We were only 2 and a half games out of first place. I remember it vividly. Jim Dwyer and Larry Sheets both hit grand slams that night and we LOST. That started a 14-40 run to finish the year. Amazing.

If Gausman doesn't go tomorrow, I wonder who will?

At this point the Fan of the Game should.

Tillman has had some bad luck but that was a brutal pitch.

It's the Skins.. it's almost like playing the Browns in this era.

Dan and Buck were pretty shocked to see they hadn't messed with his routine in like a month.

Skipping Chen in Toronto. Just like before.

I was at that wet miserable game at Memorial Stadium, where we were down 6-0 then up 9-6, only to lose 13-11. The beginning of the end.

Don't forget, Texas hit a grand slam in the top of the 4th, with Dwyer and Sheets getting their slams in the bottom of the 4th. Still a MLB record for most slams in an inning.

    • I was pretty close my one year of little league. I was good at leaning into inside pitches tho.
    • Absolutely.  I'm sure the official Norfolk Ryan Mountcastle Swing Decision tool kit isn't as crude as O-Swing%.   Though there I think not swinging at balls is a lot more cut and dried. Just on that Orioles page though, If Sisco and Stewart are discerning the right strikes, and only trying for those, their Chris Davis-lagging 75-ish Zone Contact percentages don't exactly shine.    You or I could post a 0.0 O-Swing%.
    • Just something to wet the appetite for the 2021 season.  http://www.orioleshangout.com/2021/01/17/beyond-the-2020-top-30/
    • o   "Great hitters know that they don't have to swing until there are 2 strikes on them."   Jim Palmer, In-Game Commentary on MASN o
    • If a strike is a pitcher's pitch are you not better off taking it? You get three strikes, make him throw it two more times.
    • Agree, but at least he improved from .261/.297 to .261/.315.   
    • Controlling the strike zone is a big team problem.  For all swing decisions is a little bit of a punchline, at the team level the 2020 Orioles were last by a lot MLB-wide at chasing pitches out of the zone.  Santander's O-Swing% here was a touch better than RMC or Nunez, the other two hitters on the team who were any good (non-Iglesias category). ORIOLE RESULTS https://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?pos=all&stats=bat&lg=all&qual=50&type=5&season=2020&month=0&season1=2020&ind=0&team=2&rost=0&age=0&filter=&players=0&startdate=2020-01-01&enddate=2020-12-31 Sisco and Stewart atop this list representative to me of watchers who aren't quite sure they can touch MLB pitches regularly. Hays 38%, Santander 41% and RMC 42% all worse than the 2020 Orioles 36.6%.  Twenty-nine MLB teams in the 27-34 range, and one 37. TEAM RESULTS https://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?pos=all&stats=bat&lg=all&qual=0&type=5&season=2020&month=0&season1=2020&ind=0&team=0,ts&rost=0&age=0&filter=&players=0&startdate=&enddate= Santander does need health and reps, but I don't feel like his Eye is a fatal flaw as far as becoming an okay, maybe even good, player.   I think his Eye as a 21-year old hitter in the Carolina League is part of what got him selected. We know 1/2/3 Hays/Santander/RMC group probably will never be great at this - its some of why I'm keen to see 4/5/6 Trey/Yusniel/Adley sooner so pitchers have to work more. If we ever get to 7/8/9 buy a good infielder, Lindor's contact skills vs. some of the others (apart from being just plain better) are so attractive.  I mean I wouldn't say no to Javier Baez if he'd actually come here, but he wouldn't exactly round out team-wide offensive skill sets, and we've seen the Machado/Jones/Schoop show when All-Star tools get the tiniest bit stale.
