Bundy is Broken

Was looking at Bundy’s career stats today ... looking pretty close to Brad Bergesen atm. More K’s, more wins, and higher WAR, but similar ERA in about the same number of innings.

I guess my point is that I didn’t think much of Brad Bergesen and Bundy shouldn’t even be whispered in the same breath, ideally. But here we are.

UGH

Bergesen was all part of the Calvary that was supposed to save things here, back in the day.

Bundy a year ago today vs. Mariners. Complete game one-hitter. 12K, 2 BB. 116 pitches. I think the one hit was a bunt in the 4th or 5th inning. 

The runs were all via HR by guys now gone. Schoop (29th), Machado (30th), and Castillo (15th). They were still in the WC race at this point, a game out of the 2nd spot by winning this one, if memory serves (was reminded by a FB “Memories” post I had). 

O’s were in 3rd place, 8 games out. 67-65. The bottom fell out shortly after.

Not even a little.

His location is off too. They showed a few replays where Wynns set up on the opposite side of the plate of where the ball was heading...Before a bat interrupted it.

I want to hear an outsider's opinion of Bundy. A scout. A coach. An executive. To see, if there is anything worth hoping for with him.

Something. He is beyond depressing and hope, right now.

My fear is Bundy is trying to compensate for an injury.  If he’s hurt, Bundy needs to just take the rest of season off.

Ask Ben. He was a shoulder guy.

The manager, who is not being paid for wins apparently, is PAID to make him take the rest of the season off.  Quit throwing him out there just so he can get destroyed.  If he isn't physically hurt, then I am sure his feelings are.......man he is just awful.

Even if it’s only a mental or mechanical issue throwing Bundy out there every 5 days to get shelled isn’t going to get him right.

U don’t lose 5mph off your fb and a bunch of rpm off of your breaking stuff do to conditioning. He’s injured or otherwise broken. I don’t see how any parent with a top pitching prospect would allow him to sign with the O’s.

Did I mention, they all break.  And very very few ever make any money at MLB. But if you do make a bit of money, you don't have to work until age 70.

I hear what many are saying about lost velocity and less torque on breaking balls, but why would they continually run him out there if there was even a hint of injury?  What motivation would they have?  That’s what I struggle with.  I agree that he’s not the same Bundy we saw in the first half, but I don’t understand why they would continue to send him out there every 5th day.

This is the same team that signed Chris Tillman this past off season and kept running him out there as long as they could.

    • There seemed to be a trend away from giving large contract to players over 30 in the past 5 years.   But not this year.
    • I wish I knew more about how much each side is willing to dig in. My assumption is that the owners aren't going to go for a payroll floor, and that the players aren't going to fight to the death for it. I think the players hold firm on the service clock issue, and that it will be changed. I guess the issue players care most about is being paid earlier in their careers, and I think that's not without merit. My hope is that instead of sweeping changes that the owners will resist, they tweak something a little more familiar to the existing system, like making players arbitration eligible quicker. These CBA negotiations are important inflection points that help keep MLB on the right path by giving equal power to the players and owners. They become toxic when the leaders of one or both sides go on a power grab. As much as it looks like both sides are digging in, I'm not seeing either side going on one of those power grabs here, which is encouraging. That doesn't mean this won't take some time. And it might well affect the 2022 Orioles roster. It appears our shopping list is a SS/3B on a short term deal, a veteran SP, and a backup catcher. While a shortened offseason is unlikely to meaningfully harm those pursuits since we're essentially dumpster diving (not pursuing free agents on long term deals), it could help us land a player on a short deal who is a victim to a last second musical chairs scramble. And I'm guessing the upcoming deadline will result in a few deals being made and a flurry of signings. It could be argued that if the O's are going to move Mullins or Means, it becomes much less likely after Tuesday. I'm speculating like mad here. Logic would suggest that the will to compromise will be great given the financial disaster of the 2020 season and the optics of a lockout during a pandemic. 
    • Did you read my thread on payroll ups and downs?  Overall, payrolls are down about $15 mm in the last five years.   That’s what they have to complain about.  
    • He had multiple arm injuries and was held to under 80 IP.  Maybe the combo of the injuries and a small sample size led to this. Interesting name to consider but you figure he signs a pillow contract with a better team and in a better park than OPACY.
    • It’s definitely a ton of money, just saying it’s not the same as it used to be.     These salaries are all relative.  The TV signed within the last few years is the richest ever for the sport.  The money is just pouring in and Toronto has a lot of cheap talent that allows them to spend like this. I wouldn’t have given KG this contract but I understand why they did.  
    • Maybe. But he’s gonna shove it up our ass for the next 5 years, bank on that. 
    • I look at all these long term contracts being given out and I wonder what the players are complaining about.  Players around 30 (give or take a couple of years)  sign 4 to 7 year contracts for big money.  Franco getting an 11 year contract in his earlier 20s. If I am the players I don't want anything they would disrupt the distribution of the cash flow.
