Buck losing games

Recommended Posts

I feel like he was keeping his options rested for the Toronto series. If the offense had done their job we probably wouldn't be talking about this.
If the 3B coach wasn't a windmill we might not be talking about this.

I don't understand warming Brach up only to leave OD in.

Brach was up if they got the lead. You don't want to use guys only an inning in a tie game .

Yeah if it is 3-2 or whatever he uses the big three.

Brach should have pitched the 6th.

Dickerson had a terrible send with Trumbo.

Kim and Trumbo are DH's playing in a big OF.

And that folks is how a winnable game turns into a 6-2 loss.

This still goes back to the starting pitching though. We have two key pieces of the pen imo in Worley and Bundy. The problem is we have had to take them out of the pen to fill the holes from only 3 starters. This is why I have been saying we need to add a starter it slides either Worley or Bundy into spots like today.

Yeah, Despaigne gave up the lead so fast Buck decided to save them for Toronto unless they got the lead. He needed the BP to go 6th-9th inning (and possibly more if went into extras). He was not going have one of the big 3 going 2 innings.

If Brach pitches 6th who pitches the 7th?

Givens or O'day. Let Givens pitch the 7th or 8th depending on the LH's.

If you pitch Givens he is out tomorrow. Buck wants his big 4 ready for Toronto.

We're locked and loaded going into the Toronto series. Only cost us a 3 game losing streak to get our roster set up for the big weekend series.

It amazes me how many people would run the pen into the ground if they were managers Brach already has a big work load I want him in games in games we are winning not tie games or games vs the division.

My only guess was if the Orioles had taken the lead he would have brought in Brach.

    • I get the frustration about his comments being similar to the past, to the stupid contract and still being on the team. If he must be here (and it seems likely at this point), it'd be nice if the changes made a difference and he showed significant progression.  Not going to bank on it, but it would be more fun to have him not suck if we're stuck with him.
    • I'm lukewarm on Lawlar for the same ageist reason as Witt. Lawlar 7.1.2002 will already be 19 by draft day just as Witt 6.14.2000 was in 2019.  I think 6.30 is the exact seasonal age day, so Lawlar will max out that dividing line forever and ever.   Gunnar 6.29.2001 was two drafts ahead but is just one year older than Lawlar. Maybe I've seen too much Friday Night Lights and the Texas dream of gridiron domination with all the "let's hold the boy back from kindergarten a year" and maybe its something completely innocent, but whatever the root of it was, those quarters and half years of age bear on future projection. There's a whole season for the Age 18's and Age 21's to play, but Lawlar (age and all), and the three SEC aces would be kind of a bummer of a Top 4.   Its probably early to count Hill there until he pitches as many innings as Hunter Harvey.   I'm sure Garrett Stallings had plenty of rising NCAA juniors alongside him this offseason, so who knows who's who these days?   Games soon, games soon...
    • Plus 10-15 innings pitched with an ERA under 6.00.
    • I can understand if a scout doesn't like the guys selected, but Elias' strategy was to get three potential chances instead of one, particularly when there was no "no-brainer" at #2. if there was a Manny Machado-type sitting there I don't think the draft goes down like that, particularly if we were talking about a full draft where the team could have made a few college senior signs at #6-#10 and perhaps would have been able to afford at least one of Baumler or Mayo.  Kjerstad is quite the enigma here for several reasons, but the worse may be that the organization hasn't even seen him play since signing him. I've heard a rumor that I won't spread about Kjerstad that it's more than the heart condition that has kept him sidelined. No idea if it's true or not and it's was probably 3rd or 4th hand information so it's nowhere near something I would repeat.  But either way, he's a guy the organization really can't afford to miss on. Time will tell whether Elias was right or wrong in this draft, so I can't get on Law for his opinion because it's his opinion.  BTW, I liked Asa Lacy the best at #2, but I obviously don't have all the information that Elias has. 
    • Which isn't even the same person that it was when Davis was signed. We can however blame both the ownership and the FO for Davis not being released.
