I agree. But it had to be done.

Who are these guys and what happened to the Orioles staff!?

Moves are getting made. This is unusual!

Yes, but it is still about 18 months later than any other team in the majors would have taken

So it took 18 months for *insert whatever caused this to happen.*

Would you rather they waited 18 years?

They had no other good option.   Now the question is whether he chooses to stay in the organization for the rest of the season.

Godspeed Chris Tillman.

Bummer... pitching is so terribly fickle.

They all break, even Nolan Ryan. Of course he didn't break until he was in his 40's. Amazing when you consider how hard he threw.

Tillman wasn’t getting outs at A ball.

It sucks that his career has to end this way.  Maybe now Tillman will consider surgery.  That is the only chance I see him making a comeback.

So we are still not making a clean break. If he pitches in AAA he is wasting a roster spot and hurting the development of some viable player.

So tough for this organization to make simple decisions

    • I don’t think we saw enough of Valaika defensively at 2B (73 innings total) to draw any conclusions about whether he’s better than Alberto.    I tend to doubt he is, but I don’t really have a strong view about it.     I thought Valaika did a nice job with the bat, and in particular, showed more power than I would have expected.   I’m not sold that he’s a .791 hitter, but he showed enough to hold his 40-man spot this winter.    
    • my takeaway from 2020 is Mountcastle, Hays, Akin, Kremer, and to lesser extent Mullins.   Santander and Iglesias did good things.  Means finished strong.  Hope.
    • Joe West and Angel Hernandez asked me to say hello for them.
    • Thanks for sharing that.  Don’t believe I’ve heard Martyn before.  Now, I’d like to hear the Foo Fighters cover it.
    • The great increases in homers and strikeouts have occurred in the last few years. I think it may be because the players are practicing putting backspin on the balls when they hit them. The backspin will make the balls travel farther, but it's also harder to put backspin on a baseball by hitting it. If you watch Sports Center when they are showing highlights of homeruns, they usually show in slow motion some of the batters' swings. If you see this from the camera angle that is near the dugout facing the batter, you can see that the batters are swinging using a downward angle. The downward angle will put backspin on the ball(if it is hit just right). It's also harder to hit the ball when your swing has that angle. So if the batters hit the pitches just right, the balls will have backspin and if those balls are in the air they will have more of a chance of going over the fence. But it is also harder to make contact with the pitch, which makes an increase in strikeouts inevitable.  Analytics have made the old idea of the level swing just something in the memories of us old-timers.
    • I like games when balls are put in play.  Mountcastle puts balls in play.  I like Ryan Mountcastle. 😉
    • DJ LeMahieu is a free agent at the end of the year
