Mission: Impossible?

"Your mission -- should you decide to accept it -- is to go into the Bronx and win 3 of 4 games this weekend."

Impossible?    No, just highly improbable.    But I'd like our playoff chances much better if we could pull it off.

Miley v. Tanaka

Hellickson v.  Severino

Jimenez v. Sabathia

Bundy (?) v. Gray

I'm not going to overanalyze this.    Win tonight against Tanaka (4.82 ERA, got shelled in Texas last time out but overall has been pitching very well since late July), and go from there.   Score some runs, already!

 

 

Bundy is not starting Sunday according to the Sun. 

The Orioles don’t have a day off in their next turn in the rotation, but Showalter indicated Wednesday that Bundy likely wouldn’t make his next start in turn to continue to give him extra rest.

 

“This is all designed for him to pitch in October,” Showalter said. “We’re going to continue to make sure of that. We’ve got some numbers we’re looking at. He’s in good shape right now.

 

Right-hander Ubaldo Jiménez would be in line to pitch that day, but the club could also start right-hander Chris Tillman. Showalter has shuffled Tillman and Jimenez in and out of the bullpen in recent weeks, so it’s possible he could do that again and give the start to Tillman.

In my rat's ass of an opinion, this is one of the best (and most underrate) shows ever.

The circumstances of the show were very similar to another excellent seriesRoom 222.

Wow, now that you mention it, I hadn't thought of Room 222 in several decades - just remember liking it a lot and thinking Karen Valentine was cute.  I'm gonna need to watch some re-runs.

No we have about 1.1% chance.  That is significantly better than Zero.  And taking 3 or 4 in NY as the sweep in Boston recently, would perk the chances up more.  

 

 

 

But of course 1.1% IS NOT very close to being in either.

Sorry but I already gave up on the WC for the O's.

Is Bundy pitching in the AFL?  I'm just trying to figure out where he would pitch in October?

Took the words right out of my mouth. Yes, Karen Valentine. I was probably 7 or 8 when this came out and I was in love with her from the get go.

The Orioles' last regular season game is Oct. 1. Guess Bundy must be scheduled for that one. :)

Orioles notes: O's to keep Dylan Bundy on short leash with postseason in mind.

October 3rd against the Yankees at Yankee Stadium. Could be an Oriole win but will Britton get in the game?

I wonder if the O's will shut Bundy down entirely once they are eliminated.   We'll have 12 games to go after this weekend.     Assuming Bundy starts on Monday, he'd get at most 2 starts after that, and possibly only one.   But perhaps it will be zero.

    • The Os don’t need a 40 man spot right now.  
    • Agree with all of this.  I think Tony has Gunner here. Agree on Hall as well.  I had him above Rodriguez for a long time, but just due to the fact that Rodriguez has been healthy I bumped him above.  A lot of risk with Hall for sure, but the upside there is perennial CY contender if he can harness everything.
    • I really have no idea where Kjerstad should be ranked.  I’m guessing that the next 2 are Hall and Westburg. At that point, you have Stowers, Norby and Kjerstad, along with guys like Pinto, Baumann and Bradish.  (Not to mention, a guy like Basillo) I would guess Kjerstad gets into the top 10.
    • I’m going to stick with the idea that Hall was ranked lower than 5th last year and after being hurt, he didn’t play enough to jump up the list. I think Hall will be 6th.  Im going Gunner here. Quite frankly, a healthy Hall has a case to be #2 but we need to see it first.
    • I don’t quite understand the concern over Mayo’s size, and why some folks believe that will keep him from sticking at 3rd base. He’s listed at 6’5” / 215lbs. I believe that’s an inch taller and about ten pounds heavier than Cal Ripken Jr. was when he was a rookie at 3rd in 1982. Cal’s size never seemed an impediment to him defensively while he was at 3rd, and it certainly didn’t appear to hurt him when he moved to the more demanding position at SS.    Right now Austin Riley is playing pretty good 3rd base for the Braves, and he’s listed at 6’3” / 240lbs. If somebody his size can stick there for a World Series contender why can’t Mayo do the same for us? 
    • I think we can pretty safely rule out Baumann and Kjerstad here Honestly, I could see the case for Hall, Henderson or Westburg. Tony has had Henderson ahead of Westburg pretty much all year, so I'm going to eliminate Westburg. Game then becomes which hurts the guy more in Tony's eyes? Hall being injured for most of the year or Westburg's poor defense. If I could have only one of these guys in the system, I'd pick Hall because the upside is tantalizing and we really need starting pitching. I'm going to guess Tony feels the same, but I still have a strong hunch it's Henderson. Going with "Disabled List" Hall here.
    • Good write up. Looking forward to (hopefully) seeing him pitch in the big leagues in 2022. Back in the day the Orioles always broke their young starters in as long relief specialists, and I’m wondering if that might be the best role for G-Rod when he’s eventually promoted to the majors. Give him 50-60 pitches in a blowout once or twice a week. They would be low pressure innings where he could find his footing without having to worry about wins and losses. If I remember correctly that’s how Flanagan, McGregor, Boddicker, Ben McDonald, and maybe even Wayne Garland saw their first big league action. I’d certainly rather watch a kid like Rodriguez in that spot this coming season than a 29 or 30 year old journeyman who’s on his fifth team in six years.
