Matt Albers is also trying to hold a lead for Milwaukee, and I wasn't even aware that he was still in baseball.

In addition to the $21 Million that he has made since his rookie season in 2006, he will probably have a good pension coming to him someday (should he live that long.)

Wait, What? Is this true??

From Redsox.com

Quote

 

Enter Andrew Cashner, who was entrusted with the save opportunity in his first bullpen appearance since being bounced from the starting rotation. He came through for his first career save.

Cashner threw 17 pitches, 11 of them for strikes. The righty topped out at 97.7 mph and retired three out of the four batters he faced.

"My adrenaline hadn't been that high in a while," said Cashner. "It reminded me of being back in college, closing games out. It was fun."

Wow! Adrenaline is a powerful thing. If he can maintain that, he may have just ensured his next FA contract as a back end BP piece.

I remember Chris Tillman starting against the Tigers in the ALDS and striking at the side at OPACY hitting 98-99 for an entire half inning. My favorite Tillman memory for sure.

One of my favorite Orioles of the past five years, Joey Rickard was called up by the Giants a few days ago.

He was absolutely killing it for them in AAA: .922 OPS over 56 games.

Over his first four games back in the majors he’s 3/9 with a homer, a double, and two walks. (1.232 OPS).

He joins another former Oriole prospect, Mike Yastrzemski, in their outfield. The grandson of Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski, has been off to a great start for the Giants. He’s got an .821 OPS over 61 games, with 12 homers, 14 doubles, and 2 triples.

 

Sure would be nice to have Yaz, Rickard, and Christian Walker (all 28) back in our system...

13 home runs after today for Yaz.

I find it puzzling how the O's didn't give Yaz a chance despite all the reliance on Rickard. One would think we'd learned something after the dull procession of corner-outfield failures ever since Markakis left.

I never understood why we never gave Yaz a chance with all the terrible players we have had in the last two years.  Both DD and Elias failed here.

OK, lets be honest.  Little Yaz struggled his way through his minor league career.  He was 25 before he did well has AA and he was 27 before he had a good year at AAA in 2018.    Elias did invite him to ST this spring.   And he struggled again.    

I think its great that he is doing well for the Giants but the fact is his struggles were the reason he is did not  progress faster through his minor league career.

The Harbor Park effect. AAA made us overhype all of our P to come through there and underhype our Hitters. 

The MLB balls in AAA may have helped us out more than the usual org. Imagine all these AAA P on this year’s team might have decent ERA in AAA. We’d be wondering why they couldn’t do that in AAA. Now we know, they’re terrible in AAA too. 

Notice how cautious we’ve been with promoting guys from Bowie. It could work against our SP prospects there, but a guy like Diaz could really force the issue. I don’t think we’re trying to promote Diaz until next June 1. 

My tinfoil thoughts.

Well, for me the question is whether the Giants' scouts or AAA staff saw something about Yaz that we didn't. Good that we gave Santander a decent chance. Have been trying to give the same to DJ but couldn't prevent his injuries.

Were one or more of the "AAA"'s supposed to be an "AA?" I'm confused.

I’m really scared about the Bowie group. Elias is allowing us to have some hope over the offseason.
