Didn’t watch the game. How did it look?

Cisco battled Cole to 3-2, fouled a couple pitches off, and then hit a hanging, outside slider over the fence down the left field line.  It was a fine at bat.

I must admit that I often miss the days of Matt Wieters.

In Wieters, Hardy and Schoop, we had three great taggers.    Wieters was awesome at short-hopping throws and with those long arms could take balls well in front of the plate and sweep tag just about anyone; and before the “no blocking the plate” rule, was a boulder down there.   Hardy taught Schoop how to position himself astride the bag and let the ball come to him rather than reaching out for it, and they were both expert at this and also extremely adept at catching and tagging in a single motion, even on bouncing throws.     I think of this every time Villar, Alberto or Martin reach out for a ball and either are a split second late with the tag, or simply don’t catch the ball.

I hope our new O's coaches try to instruct our middle infielders about this!

Could just hire Hardy, not like he's busy.

It occurred to me, but then I thought it might be seen as encroaching on the current infield coach's territory. BTW who has responsibility for that area?

There isn't one coach specifically listed, but based on the bios I'm guessing Jose Hernandez or Jose Flores.

I just pulled the game up. Why is Sisco at first?

Pinch hit for Martin and because Chris Davis isn't good at baseball anymore.

Refulgent double down the right field line off a fb on the corner. #ChanFranSiscoTreat. 

I learned a new word - rep to you!

His framing looks pretty good. Very smooth and unforced. 

Yeah, he got 3 strike calls on one batter that were all off the outside corner.  I don't know if it was bad umpiring or good framing or a combo.  Otoh, he made me almost pull my hair out when batting he had a 3-1 count and swung at what would have been ball 4 twice - and struck out.  Tell him not to watch Chris Davis anymore.  Btw, Davis' attempt to catch a very high popup to short RF last night... just awful.  He's not just horrible offensively; his defense is also unacceptible.  He has to go, but we all know that - as he continues to play.  Ok, back to Chance.

    • Houston has also been able to acquire arms late in the draft or cheaply in the international market and develop them into trade assets. I'm prepping for Rule 5 draft stuff and it's unbelievable how many good arms they have in the minors that came out of nowhere (10+ round pick or older international signees). They all throw hard and miss bats. 
    • Hopefully the Nats finish this thing off today.  They have gone I think 81-40 since starting 19-31.  That is remarkable.  The Cardinals do what they always do in October....overachieve.  Thankfully, they are about to get stuffed by the much better team.  This will be a really good WS matchup regardless of who comes out of the AL. 
    • Eh, I don't really buy that in this case.  Liberatore is a lefty, has better mechanics, and more projection remaining, so I think there is a fair case for Liberatore then and now. It's really close though, Rodriguez is the better pitch at the moment, but no one really cares who is the better pitcher at 19 in low A ball. 
    • The old Liberatore vs Rodriguez debate. I think most “experts” will always try and rank Liberatore slightly higher than Rodriguez because they all criticized the O’s for “reaching” for Rodriguez. 
    • Someone pointed out before that Vaughn got pitched around his last year in NCAA. Let’s see what happens to Torkelson when/if he gets that treatment.  I don’t see how we could draft Torkelson.  Even if we trade Mancini, Mountcastle is still likely a 1B.  When team building I don’t think you pencil in your future 1B and DH spots first.   I’d like to see us draft a bat, but if the best SP is available then I’m open to that. I think that bats are safer picks and would help the system more.  Hopefully Detroit makes a mistake at 1:1 and we get the player Elias thinks is #1 overall. Lots of baseball to play till the draft. 
    • HOU got burned with taking Pitchers Appel and Aiken high. HOU has been grow the bats and buy the arms since then. Using their prospect bats to acquire proven SP.  I do think bats are safer picks over pitchers. Last draft we took lots of bats compared to pitchers. It could’ve been lots of factors at play, but I think it was a strategic decision.  Not having the number one pick in next years’ draft means we’ll likely be deciding on the 2nd best SP, Torkelson, or other NCAA and HS bats.    
    • I hope Buck gets the Phillies job.
