How many would he throw after the end of that inning? Are you actually trying to argue a pitch limit at 80 providing an excuse to pull him mid-inning? You leave him in the dugout. How is this so difficult for you to comprehend?

If you don’t get a 9 inning no hitter then why does 6.1/3 instead of 7 innings matter? What is difference? 

He was never going 9. Never.

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!  

Bruh! Hess was crushed after Brandon Hyde motion for a pitcher change.

It is a terrible thing for the Yankees that Miguel Andujar has a torn labrum. It is a good thing for the Orioles and David Hess that he does not.

Which he got despite a strict innings limit of no innings.

I guess there's some high-powered research that's been done which has driven the sport in the direction it's going.  Certainly velocities are up, and maybe how teams manage their pitchers is driving a lot of that; I don't know.

And I still think there needs to be some room for some more humanized decision making where you say, the guy is doing something really amazing and cool, and it's OK if he pushes his limits a bit.  Not just letting pitch count run the show.  And today, pitch count ran the show.  This wasn't a Daniel Cabrera 5 IP, 0 H, 9 BB, 10 K no-hitter.  He was basically cruising and people are using a few loud outs and his appearance some days ago to prop up robotic baseball-by-numbers.  And I don't really want to hear the "gee some people really like to complain about a win," because the pitchers succeeding him did about all they could to dismantle his pitching and the Orioles' offensive efforts.  Pulling him didn't really help anything.

I don't think Pitch Counts should dictate decisions but be part of the decision.  What if the score was 1 -  0?

We don't need to think that. The numbers guys in baseball make it so.

I don't always think the new age stuff is about health but in outcome prediction.

Pinch hit in 9th inning. Hasn’t started. 

Alberto probably is not a starter.

I am telling you that he was graded at 80 pitches before the start. That is what I am saying.

Yeah I dont think anyone has any clue on how to keep pitchers healthy.

70 pitches. 

 

Awful awful awful decision. If you think otherwise than you just like to play contrarian and get people bent out of shape like Frobby & Corn. I doubt either of them actually think that, they just enjoy the reaction.

Not 70 pitches.   82.   And he pitched 3 days ago.

I am having no problem understanding you. I just am disagreeing with you.

Alberto got a hit on opening day. 6.2 innings is not a short outing. 5.1 innings would be 80 pitches for a guy averaging 15 per inning.

What do you think I am saying? 

My point is we are keeping a bench player who never plays and using an opener with a staff that until tonight hasn’t gone deep. It won’t work.

I didn’t say that and wasn’t upset by the decision really ...if, and this is a very big if, I was going to give him a shot at it, then I would have taken it to a max of 100-108 and only then if he was only still at 90-95 pitches through 8...if he got to 95 in the eighth I would have removed him too...or if there was a hit obviously or he tired in any fashion obviously. 

But frankly after being reminded by our manager in the presser of the two innings on Opening Day last Thursday...nope, I agree..it was fine...and I am happy with the win and his performance. 

My only point was everyone who said the 80 pitch limit was a total absolute limit might have felt differently if he was taken out in the ninth at 82 pitches.  But it was a great win, great performance....Go Os! 

I think there was probably an "80ish" pitch limit.   Tony pointed out in the game thread that he had never gone over 65 in spring training.    And he threw 42 pitches on Thursday.

The last out of the 6th and first out of the 7th was hard hit.   There was also a pitch in that first at bat in the 7th where he missed Sucre's target by so much that Sucre gave him a funny look..   I think that was all a factor.

I think by the time he got to the 7th approaching 80 pitches, they knew there was no way he was going to go 9.   So it became a matter of when to yank him.   And waiting for fate to make the decision by allowing a hit rather than making the best decision for Hess isn't how the new Orioles are going to operate,.

    • Without going too deep into policy/protocol I can say that the media has no real constraints and that’s not a rule.  Every outlet has their priorities and objectives and this is where they can be carried out. The amount of stories here, especially as the games aren’t here yet is not too many.   I didn’t read too much on Eve but she’s a great story, she’s in a major role and it’s an example of the O’s demonstrating out of the box thinking and a forward mentality.   From my perspective, I have my own objectives (learn a little and inform OH readers) and people have been making suggestions to me.  Next one up is a little more on Diaz.  If there’s anything else you’re curious about let me know.
    • Broadcast information for Orioles spring training games. Key Radio    105.7:  Game is on Orioles' flagship 105.7; availability on other stations on the Oriole radio network is unknown    MLB.com:  Oriole radio broadcast is available online.  Not sure of the details, remember Melewski did these games last year, this could be something similar.    Note:  if you happen to live within radio range of another team's broadcast, a game could be on their radio network too.   I didn't go as far as to research that.   You can go to a page like this https://www.mlb.com/phillies/schedule/2020-03/list and substitute the team nickname for "phillies" in the address bar and find out which of their games are on the radio.   TV:    MASN:  Game is on MASN.   (Note that MASN usually re-airs the game later that evening or overnight; I do not have the info of the re-air times but it's often 7pm for a 1pm weekday game)    MLBN:  Game is shown live on MLB Network (note that if the game is also on MASN, the MLBN broadcast will be blacked out for those of us in the Orioles' territory)    MLBN Replay:  Game is shown delayed on MLB network, time is given    Opponents TV:  Game is shown on opponents TV network, which you might be able to get if you  live in that region or if you find a way to stream online Sat Feb 22 Orioles at Braves, 1:05    TV:  Opponents TV (FSSE); MLBN replay at 6:00 AM the next day    Radio:  MLB.com Sun Feb 23 Orioles vs Red Sox, 1:05    TV:  MASN; Opponents TV (NESN); MLBN replay at 2:00 AM Mon Feb 24 Orioles at Phillies, 1:05    TV:  MLBN; Opponents TV (NBCSP) Tue Feb 25 Orioles (split squad) at Red Sox, 1:05    No radio/TV found Orioles (split squad) vs Rays, 1:05    Radio:  105.7 Wed Feb 26 Orioles vs Braves, 1:05    TV:  MASN, MLBN (MLBN blacked out in Oriole territory) Thu Feb 27 Orioles vs Pirates, 1:05    Radio:  MLB.com Fri Feb 28 Orioles at Pirates, 1:05    TV:  Opponents TV (ATTSportsNet-Pitt); MLBN replay at 6:00 AM the next morning    Radio:  MLB.com Sat Feb 29 Orioles vs Marlins, 1:05    Radio:  105.7 Sun Mar 1 Orioles at Phillies 1:05    No radio/TV found Mon Mar 2 Orioles vs Rays, 1:05    TV:  MASN; MLBN replay at 6:00 PM    Radio:  105.7 Tue Mar 3 Orioles at Nationals, 1:05    Radio:  MLB.com Wed Mar 4 Orioles at Marlins, 1:05    Radio:  MLB.com Thu Mar 5 Orioles vs Twins, 3:05    Radio:  105.7 Fri Mar 6 Orioles at Yankees, 6:35    Radio:  105.7 Sat Mar 7 Orioles at Rays, 1:05    TV:  Opponents TV (Fox Sports Sun); MLBN replay at 11PM    Radio:  105.7 Sun Mar 8 Orioles vs Yankees, 1:05    TV:  MASN; MLBN replay at 6:00 AM the next day Mon Mar 9 OPEN DATE Tue Mar 10 Orioles vs Braves, 6:05    Radio:  105.7 Wed Mar 11 Orioles at Blue Jays, 1:07    Radio:  MLB.com Thu Mar 12 Orioles at Twins, 6:05    TV:  Opponents TV (FSNO+); MLBN replay at 8:00 PM    Radio:  105.7 Fri Mar 13 Orioles vs Blue Jays, 1:05    TV:  MASN; Opponents TV (SNET); MLBN replay at 6:00 AM the next day Sat Mar 14 Orioles (split squad) at Braves, 6:05    No radio/TV found Orioles (split squad) vs Pirates, 6:05    Radio:  MLB.com Sun Mar 15 Orioles at Rays, 1:05    Radio:  MLB.com Mon Mar 16 Orioles vs Phillies, 1:05    Radio:  MLB.com Tue Mar 17 Orioles vs Nats, 1:05    Radio:  105.7 Wed Mar 18 Orioles at Twins, 1:05    TV:  MLBN; Opponents TV (FSNO+) Thu Mar 19 Orioles at Pirates, 1:05    TV:  Opponents TV (AttSportsNet-Pitt); MLBN replay at 6:00 AM the next day    Radio:  MLB.com Fri Mar 20 Orioles vs Red Sox, 6:05    TV:  MASN; Opponents TV (NESN) Sat Mar 21 Orioles (split squad) at Red Sox, 6:05    TV:  Opponents TV (NESN); MLBN replay at 12:30 AM (half past midnight) Orioles (split squad) vs Twins, 6:05    Radio:  MLB.com Sun Mar 22 Orioles vs Phillies, 1:05    TV:  MASN;  MLBN replay at 9:00 AM the next day    Radio:  105.7 Mon Mar 23 Orioles vs Mets, 1:05    Radio:  MLB.com    
    • Sure, that’s why I’m here.  Diaz is a priority for me to get info on and I’ll work on that.  Physically, he has always been ‘lower body thick’ and I love that in hitters who aren’t flying out of the box.  Now, he’s closer to ‘upper body thick’ and defined strongly throughout his arms, shoulders and neck.  He put muscle on, not a ton but he also took some of his weight and made it into muscle.  That’s not the easiest process so maybe I’ll find out some more. Santander has similar dimensions but a different build.  He’s slightly leaner but his lower legs are explosive and he can run, stop and start quickly.  Diaz seems more stuck to a spot but not badly.   Stats tell a different story as Santander can put up some pop numbers, but that’s more swing and athleticism.  His neck isn’t huge across like Diaz’s is now.  If they were both tracking a ball in the outfield, Santander can probably get to it and be ready to throw quickly while that process may be slower for a slightly heavier legged guy like Diaz.  Not an insult, just a differing physical profile.   I’ve heard the comp so many times for Diaz as being Melky Cabrera.  I don’t think that’s off by too much because I could see him making contact and driving gappers hard to the wall if he gets his stroke going.  I’d love to see it with consistency.  I don’t think that Santander is more powerful but he’s proven that he can do more with his swing at this point in his career. Thats a good question.
    • I’m here for you.  I’ve seen him throw and pitch very little but he’s definitely got stuff. It’s not straight and flat so I bet he’s got good hands or a release that makes movement happen. To be honest I remember him more on TV than from here at camp.  When I pick my roster for the contest, he WILL be on it.  I don’t see him being a dark horse who can surprise the league like Means did but a highly usable piece and one who can protect leads.   I don’t know how much value there is in that on the 2020 O’s specifically but he’s my pre-setup guy in my breaking camp 26.  
    • Where’s their camp?  I’ll go look too!
    • I don’t have an immense amount of confidence at this point.  I’d be happily surprised if he found a place.   He didn’t respond well to adversity last year by any measure but that doesn’t mean he’s done for good.  It also doesn’t mean he can’t come back with a different mindset or focus.

AVERAGE man can gain .25-.5 lbs in a week Factors: 1. Steroids- not saying he's not using 2. Experience Level - He's always been a bigger guy and was touted as being a gym rat/weightlifter by teammates 3. Muscle memory/regrowth - Easy to regain i.e. looks like 2017 Chris Davis 4.  Genetics - Saw him in the minors before he was Crush, always been a big dude.  Family probably is too 5. Age - Works against him but just 1 of 6 factors 6. Workout and diet - rich guy, can afford a 24/7 trainer and personal chef.
