Then why start him at all? Is that not the safest move? If you are going to pull him, this is NOT the way to do it.

 

Waiting for you to enlighten us on the "way to do it."

All the drama is at the OH tonight. A young pitcher had a great game and we won. Fire the manager!

I think this is a pretty good topic. 

Don’t see something like this for everyday.

Pissed off for winning.  Never thought I'd see the day.

Don't tell me you weren't sh*tting in your pants when we almost blow it in the ninth! Did you even watch the game?

He can't. All the stuff is old school baseball. This is statistical modeling.

Someone has to throw those 80 pitches. 

Precisely. Then why let him back out for one more hitter? Therein lies the problem.

Just gonna throw out there that most pitching coaches say that it's reductive to just look at the pitching count. You have to consider how stressful the pitches were. Hess didn't throw a single pitch with a runner in scoring position or with anything less than a 4-run lead. You can harp on 82 pitches, but it was a pretty soft 82.

Since when is 6.1 innings of no hit ball "pretty soft"?

Thus we must assume that if Hess stayed in he would have a torn labrum? Perhaps we can avoid using pitchers at all to avoid such an injury? Not buying this argument. Sorry.

We are discussing an obvious stupid decision on a board with people that just relish in disagreement. 

Guy I know posted on FB the other day “I went over to the OH the other day looking for insight...and well learned my lesson there, I don’t know what I was thinking”

Our combined no hitter was unique because Milacki couldn’t go more than 4-5 ever. This is not that. And even if it was...you let him finish because it doesn’t matter to us, but it matters a hell of a lot to David Hess.

Sometimes there aren’t 2 sides to an issue...one side must argue alone for their jollies.

How many pitches had he thrown before that batter?

And a response that amounts to nothing.

Now you are saying he should have gone 6.2 innings and THEN gotten pulled, and that somehow would have made a difference??????

OH MAN HE HAD TO WALK OFF THE MOUND IT'S SO EMBARRASSING!! 

What a problem that is.  Major league pitchers having to be pulled in the middle of an inning.  The horror!

You know, I've never seen a no-hitter (or perfect game) before. I've seen Mike Mussina come close a couple times, and wasn't fortunate enough to see that 1991 no-hitter, but that's one thing I hope to see someday. Nonetheless, I think Hyde made the right decision by pulling Hess in the middle of a no-hitter. This isn't 1980 where pitchers are expected to go 9+ innings. It's early in the season, Hess is a young pitcher, and I'm hoping he has a nice, long career with the Orioles. Perhaps this will be a launching point for his career. Rick Dempsey even made a good point after the game, saying pitchers never look good after being extended for the sake of a no-hitter. As much as I want to see a no-hitter, I think this was for the best. I really didn't like seeing Araujo being called on, but it wasn't a bad time to call on him. I'm just glad we pulled out the win. I'm very happy right now 🙂

David is talking to Pedro Martinez about believing he could have gotten those few outs. That's a bit better than what would have happened after he gave up a couple hits.

    • Glad you enjoyed it.Not free  for non 2020 Birdland  members but coats are a good thing to donate.  I am just not sure what it accomplished. No former or current players or minor leaguers  Elias making the same speech for the seventh time this year. Maybe cleared out some inventory from the Oriole store.   What is a DD card? 
    • Thanks for the research, very much appreciated. This might be explained earlier in the decade long post but are the totals based on time spent on the DL/IL or total games missed due to injury even if a IL stint wasn't required?  
    • 49ers lose a trap game a home vs. ATL, fall back again to #5 seed.  NE & KC keep pressure on Ravens.
    • I think just take best player available in the first two rounds.  We need another interior lineman at some point in the draft..   T The good thing is our picks the last 2 years seem to be mostly working out so we don't have a ton of holes.  If we lose Judon we will need someone to replace him.  
    • 2010-19 Totals BAL 6,040 (3,303 position players, 954 starting pitchers, 1,783 relief pitchers) BOS 8,386 (4,051 position players, 1,558 starting pitchers, 2,777 relief pitchers) NYY 8,969 (4,322 position players, 1,929 starting pitchers, 2,718 relief pitchers) TBR 6,270 (3,044 position players, 1,544 starting pitchers, 1,682 relief pitchers) TOR 7,051 (3,095 position players, 1,841 starting pitchers, 2,115 relief pitchers)   As you can see, the Orioles were the healthiest team in the division over the decade, and strikingly, their starting pitchers were by far the healthiest.    The Yankees were the least healthy, and so were their starting pitchers.   None of that made much difference.    There are a couple of things I wanted to mention.    First, there were far more injuries in the second half of the decade than the first.    All five teams had more in the second five years: BAL 3003/3037 BOS 3947/4439 NYY 3970/4999 TBR 2267/4003 TOR 3224/3827 I don't know why, but it's getting harder to stay healthy. Another thing I thought was interesting is that the two teams whose position players missed the least time are the two teams that play their home games on artificial turf.    I've often heard people say how terrible it is to play on artificial turf and how it causes more injuries, wear and tear, etc.     Ten years of evidence does not support that.   It's been interesting to follow all this over the last decade, but also a lot of work, and I've had about enough.    Bottom line, the Orioles have not been particularly injury-prone over the last decade; in fact, it's been quite the opposite.   2014, the year we won the division, was almost miraculously healthy even though we lost Wieters for most of the year and Manny for half of it.    Our entire pitching staff missed 68 games due to injury that year, and the offense missed only 208 games total.
