7.32, 7.03, 5.56, 7.56.  Those are the ERAs of the 4 O's pitcher's that pitched tonight (5/23/18).  And of course until recently we had a pitcher who pitched for us with an even worse ERA (10.46 by Tillman!).  Truly  pathetic.

DD. said you wait until Memorial Day to step back and evaluate your club.  Do you think he will think we still have a chance to make the playoffs?

Random thought:

The teams with similar records as the Os were built with tanking in mind. Unintentional tanking for the win. 

The truly hilarious/heartbreaking aspect of this season.  This was FO/dugout giving it their best.

Unfortionately the baseball seaseon is over me.  My second interest is hope for the Yankees to lose, I am rooting for the Red Sox to beat them out.  I don't hate the Red Sox nearly as much as the Yankees.

Friend:   So, did you guys hear the one about the team that went all in to win a championship with their GM, Manager, Best Player, 2 Best Relievers, and Team Leader all on the last year of their contract?  They doubled down by starting the season with 3 Rule V guys, 5 Non-Roster Invitees and Chris Tillman and Mike Wright.

Me:  So how'd that turn out?

Friend:  Well, they were shockingly 19 games out of first place before Memorial Day, had the worst record in all of baseball but proved to all that their commitment was real by plunging ahead and working hard and changing nothing.

Me:  Is that supposed to be a joke?  It's not very funny.

Friend:  No it is not funny.

That's probably where the balls land off of Oriole pitchers.

    • Seems just like the old SG to take a few quotes and then start bashing our FO and ownership for "dumb" things. IMO, the most telling quote in the link was also the one ME explained.  The revenue situation is uncertain.  ME is quoted as saying, "We can't estimate our revenue, our attendance ....  We can't estimate various things that we look at when we look at a player or roster budget."  In light of such uncertainty, it is quite a leap to say the FO is dumb for not pursuing a particular player - in this case, Stroman.  Most prudent, well-run businesses would operate in such as manner given the uncertainty. There are multiple ways to save $ with Chris Davis including his negotiating a settlement for possible retirement, a shortened season, etc.  All of these things are more important today than opening up Davis' roster spot.  Let's see what happens.  
    • Also, if we keep Cobb through the winter, we will need the spot for rule 5 protection.
    • It is a happy fact that I think the Orioles will be good enough next year that they won’t need him. They need good infield defense and he doesn’t provide that.
    • Some final defensive numbers: Rtot: +15 (6th in MLB) Rdrs: -3 (19th in MLB)  UZR: -5.4 (21st in MLB) Fangraphs defense: -4.4 (21st in MLB)  Fielding %: .980 (27th in MLB) Overall, a bit better than last year but below average unless you want to believe Rtot.

    • The first tiebreaker was division record, even though they played in different divisions.  I guess since all games were East vs East, Central vs Central, West vs West... Division record = league record. If that was tied then it was record in final 20 division (league) games. If that was tied then record in final 21 div games, the. 22, the n23, and so on. Kind of silly but those are the rules.
