Fun with optionable pitchers

Easily. Verrett is cooked for the next two days. I'm sorry but this is a by product of winning. Stick to the winning formula. 

Buck said in the post game that we had only 3 relievers available tonight. That's unacceptable. It's time to have a 7 man pen and end the 5 man bench.

Something needs to happen with Gentry or Kim. Hopefully trading Kim. With Bourn getting close that could mean DFA'ing Gentry. 

I'd call up Nuno. He's a vet. No big deal if he pitches sporadically. I'd leave Aquino starting in AAA. I'd add Yacabonis or Scott to the 40 man and call one of them up with Nuno. 

Brach, O'day, Givens, Hart, Asher, Nuno, Yacabonis or Scott. 

Duquette specifically built this team to have long relief and spot starters that he could send up and down all season.  Verrett pitched well tonight, but he is taking a Southwest flight to Norfolk tomorrow. 

Verrett will be back, he did a good job of saving the bullpen tonight.

Verrett didn't just save the bullpen. He came up huge for the 2nd time this year.  I reserve the right to be wrong but I'm betting he's sitting in the bullpen when the game starts tomorrow night.   

I think Buck rewards him by trying to get through the next two games without sending him out.

You disagree? No problem.

Who do you think will get sent down for Aquino?

Hopefully not an injury.  With the rainout today I would assume everyone is "fresh."  This makes me worry about O'day.

You are probably right sport's fan. O'day must be going on the DL.

Or they've decided it's time to go to a 7-man pen.

If it were O'Day to the DL, wouldn't you just bring Verrett back up?    Which makes me think it isn't O'Day to the DL.    I would think Bleier would be the choice as a LH reliever.   Has he been down 10 days yet?

So what is going to be the corresponding move for Aquino today? Unless there is an injury it is going to be an interesting decision. I say Gentry is DFA'd. If Bourn who they like, is ready he is a phone call away. I can't see the team losing Kim to keep Rickard, Gentry and Bourn. I think it is a real possibility that Gentry could wind up back at Norfolk. I don't see many teams beating down his door with how he has looked at the plate, of course it only takes one.

So now what?  Asher and Bleier get optioned to AAA. Pena DFA. So who comes up?  Ynoa, Chricton, Jackson, Yacobonis, Wilson, Scott?  

Brach, Givens, O'day and Hart look overworked.

I had posted in another thread, that I think at some point soon, Hart and or Givens might need to be sent down to give them a break.

 

I would assume Jackson, Ynoa, and a 3rd pitcher are up tomorrow. He'll, at this point I would boot Pena and Kim and go with an 8 man bullpen.

Availability for tomorrow...

Brach- ?

Oday- doubtful

Givens- 

Hart- nope

Asher- Nope

Bleier-Nope

 

I think O'Day should be available.   I doubt Givens will be.

    • Sad as it is to say, Bud was way better.
    • Yeah, It was and we got unlucky not to win a WS with it.   Thinking back Bonilla (mostly) and his agent were masterful in ensuring he’d have an income most of the rest of his life. $1 million until 2035 by the Mets was masterful. Hard to believe the Mets would agree to it.    Getting paid $34 million and for 34 years after his retirement. I know deferred money is more common now. But, Bobby was ahead of the curve. Also, $1 million was more in 2001 than it is in today’s game. The other $500,000 partially from us until 2023 was also an extra 24 years of income.
    • And you know this how? I ask because I’m a restaurant guy that was in the process of buying/opening a restaurant in Westminster when the pandemic hit in March. My initial thought was on crabs (AUCE) and full service options for breakfast through dinner.    I spoke to several distributors and most of the crabs and crabmeat is from Louisiana and Texas. Here Maryland/Virginia product is mixed in during the season. In bulk, the Louisiana stuff is very affordable even for Jumbo Lump.    FYI, G&M and Timbuktu were owned by the same family for a considerable amount of years. I can’t say that I know if they still are but any change would’ve been in the last couple of years. Speaking of foreign crab meat, It’s Phillips that uses crab meat from a cove they created in Indonesia. They transported Blue Crab from here to there and it’s essentially farm raised, fed fish local to that area, and tastes off IMO. @CarrRun49 You can almost always get Backfin at Giant for around $12. It’s from South America, Peru as I recall. Which is much better than making it out of canned Salmon. The thought of that makes me want to 🤮  I think I’d rather not have them
    • Thank you for the video. I generally “scout” high school players and really hadn’t watched that much of him but he really has a sweet swing. His outfield play isn’t amazing but much better than we have marched out their since Markakis wasn’t resigned. Man that is a great swing!  I know I have said this before, but I was told 15-20 years ago that when you draft, you don’t want the 16 year old with a full beard because he is already peaking maturely but a 20 year old that can’t grow a beard has more to grow into. Not every gm goes with that, but this kid looks like a kid and has room to grow. Also with that logic, they haven’t peaked performance wise.  Physically I can see him turning into a Manny Ramirez body type(let’s hope he has that kind of career without whatever). Also why I like Rutschman, baby face with room to mature into a projectable body type. He reminds me of a Buster Posey at the same age.  Great job on this pick. I was never sold on Martin or Torkleson  (If any Os exects want to employ me, reach out and send me to Cuba!)😉
    • Every time I hear Crab cakes I think about Koco's Pub. Really miss those.
