O's had the best ERA in Baseball in September

Recommended Posts

O's went 16-11 with a 2.90 ERA in September. Kind of amazing.

Ubaldo led the O's starters with a 2.31 ERA in 5 starts over 35 innings.

Britton did not allow a run in 11 games.

Britton, Brach, Givens and Hunter had ERAs under 1.00.

The O's have been pitching challenged all season. This turnaround is one for the books. Who knew?

Go O's.

Crazy. If we could get the offense going and maintain the pitching, this team could peak at exactly the right team. Really nice to see Davis and Schoop starting to hit the last couple of games as well.

Now if we could just get Manny going.

In my "A look at the Orioles, by month" thread, I'm going to include the two October games, but it's clear our pitching has been pretty stellar, especially the bullpen. We now have the best bullpen ERA in the AL, and I think we were 5th at the end of August.

Best bullpen, best SP, and leading the league in HR. That could be a winning combination. Hopefully it is enough.

I wonder how Keith Law feels about this. He must have woken up this morning with the feeling that there was something very wrong.

Keith. He's something else.

In watching Manny the last week or so he seems as if he is swinging for the fences.

I see less patience and a loopier swing.

Hopefully he gets back on track.

I was thinking that we always have a trim the fat thread at the end of the year where we think we are going to get better by addition by subtraction. Not too many sustained performances like that this year.

Mac will be back, unless he is out of options.

Joseph will get an RBI next year.

Wright and Wilson will have roles and are young.

Reimold and Stubbs will be milb ST invitee's at best

Despaigne is already gone, but did his job and ate some IP for us.

This pitching staff will be better next year. The bullpen has been lock down without O'day. I see Buck getting more confidence in Drake. Hart has earned a role. Ubaldo really changed the rotation. Miley and Gallardo could have bounce back years. Lots to be happy about this year, and lots to be excited for next year over.

As much as the starting pitching (Ubaldo) has been criticized most of the season, this September stat is truly a remarkable surprise. Don't want to jinx anything, but I am so incredibly proud of this team right now.

Isn't this around the time Ubaldo became an American citizen? Just sayin'

It seems like he's been doing that for months. He needs to get back to what he was doing in the 1st half.

I think there is a book. Out in Manny. Sliders down and in. Seems to strike out on that pitch a lot and hasn't adjusted.

    • No, at the end of the day Villar put up a 4 win season.
    • One of the two. Both would be extremely optimistic. Even though the Reds have a weak game system and Villar seems like a really good fit.  Tendering Villar is an easy choice. It might take some stones, but not really.  We’re just going to have to see what happens with Didi.  At the end of the day Villar is a 4 WAR SS.  For any team out there looking for a SS, would you rather have Villar for 1/10 or Gregorious for at least 3/42?  That’s if the Yankees don’t want to bring Didi back, or then you have to outbid them. That’s also if you can attract a FA to your team. 
    • Yes — pretty sad.   
    • The one that stands out to me is that a guy primarily used in relief accumulated the most WAR among the pitchers.
    • Cumulative totals Record: 755-865 Runs scored: 7,034 Runs allowed: 7,774 Pythagorean record: 729-891 Most games played:  Adam Jones 1,362 Most plate appearances: Adam Jones, 5,808 Most hits: Adam Jones, 1,521 Most home runs: Chris Davis, 253 Highest WAR: Manny Machado, 31.0. Most innings: Chris Tillman, 1080 Most starts: Chris Tillman, 193 Most wins: Chris Tillman, 72 Most appearances: Darren O’Day, 391 Most saves: Zach Britton, 139 Highest pitcher WAR: Zach Britton, 13.7  
    • Juvier had a 6-89 stretch in the equivalent league as Delmarva.  Still I wouldn’t be against it.  Here’s some other SS available Reds: Alfredo Rodriguez, SS (No. 18) - The Reds gave Rodriguez $7 million to sign out of Cuba in 2016 with the hopes he’d be their future big league shortstop. He could defend in the big leagues right now, but he hasn’t hit consistently. There’s little impact with the bat, though he is coming off his best offensive season, hitting .286/.325/.347 in Double-A to earn a late promotion up a level. Angels: Leonardo Rivas, SS/2B (No. 25) - Rivas can run and he can defend, and he even added the outfield to his resume in 2019. Speed and versatility is a combination that can make for an intriguing Rule 5 pick, but he’s struggled to hit consistently (.252/.380/.362), albeit with solid on-base skills From https://www.mlb.com/news/top-prospects-in-the-2019-rule-5-draft?t=mlb-pipeline-coverage
    • List of some of the available Rule 5 players.  The list offers explanations of why guys were unprotected, https://www.mlb.com/news/top-prospects-in-the-2019-rule-5-draft?t=mlb-pipeline-coverage  - Zach Brown was his stuff and command decline all while nearly doubling his BB/9 - Juvier had a 6-89 stretch over 25 games in A ball.  After reading some more I think I’d want Jordan Sheffield then have us take two fliers on position players. I like a couple of the defense first SS that played in AA but have questions about their bat. Just going with the theory that they didn’t get to play with the juiced ball and they can at least handle the position defensively.  My wish list would be, - Dodgers: Jordan Sheffield, RHP (No. 26) - Reds: Alfredo Rodriguez, SS (No. 18) - The Reds gave Rodriguez $7 million to sign out of Cuba in 2016 with the hopes he’d be their future big league shortstop - One of the 3B, COF bats available. Santana from LAD or Moises Gomez from TB.
