I love how some posters assume that Hess is currently sobbing in the back of the locker room (while curled up in the fetal position) because Hyde somehow someway "disrespected" him. Where is the confidence?! Where is the love?!

I guess those posters didn’t watch Hess’s postgame interview.    He admitted he was “shocked” that Hyde took him out but was very good humored and gracious about it and said the appreciated that Hyde’s first concern was his long term health.

In 1980 the Athletics had 94 complete games.  Then their entire staff had arm issues a couple years later and that was the end of that.  

I don’t like it, but fact is pitchers don’t throw complete games anymore.  And with the advent of the opener, I don’t see treatment of pitchers reversing course any time soon.

He hid it well. True professional.

He was SO happy talking with Pedro. I bet he went in the Laundry cart too.

I was kind of upset the second he was pulled.  But then I realize that was more because I was going to miss out on the excitement of him going for the no hitter.  I can live with him taking out Hess.  I just dont like him bringing in Pedro there.  Also I think he is overusing guys in the Pen.  They need to bring another pitcher up.  They need to decide what is more important keeping Pedro or having two utility guys.

What a bunch of bull hockey.   I just hate it when people can’t accept that there are two sides to an issue because of their own feelings.   Don’t insult me by telling me I’m arguing just to argue.   The manager, Jim Palmer, Rick Dempsey and lots of posters agree with our side of this argument.   If you want to argue the other side, go ahead, but don’t tell me why I’m making the opposite argument.    I’m doing it because that’s what I believe, for the reasons I gave.   

Well HE double hockey sticks! You are a lawyer. You are paid to argue professionally. So not much of a stretch really....

But I am sure ripping a kid, pegged as bullpen fodder by most on here, out of his possible career pinnacle (in a season that means absolutely nothing record-wise) makes perfect logical sense to you.

Thanks doc.

I do my best. Would you suggest he complain? The laugh and shock on the mound should have made my point more succinctly. Did you miss that?

So late to this...

 

Trust the process.

 

The O's are 3-1.  I'd rather have that than a no hitter.  Although I thought we might be getting one of these today

I’d feel like a bit of a hypocrite if I was so on board with Elias and his moves and jumping ship when his chosen manager makes data-driven decisions. 

So I won’t. I support the move.

I gave any hope of the combined no-no the moment Araujo jogged in from the bullpen.

My only issue is that a no-hitter is special and Hyde should have given Hess the opportunity to decide himself if he wanted to go for it. At least consult him in the dugout before the inning started.

I understand that Hess pitched on Thursday and it is the beginning of the season and all that. I was pretty upset when it happened but now I've calmed down and understand Hyde's reasoning. I still think he should've let Hess go for it.

    • If you think trading Villar for scraps is a good idea (which is the same thing as "cash dumping" Jim Johnson, btw), then non-tendering him really isn't a big leap from there and it likely has the same end result. My point in all of this has been that non-tendering Villar to save money isn't some preposterous outcome. It's very defensible, and it's possible that no other team wants to touch him at his arb-salary while giving up anything of potential future value in return.
    • I think Luke's pretty high on Cumberland.  But other than that I generally agree with your take.
    • Major leagues definitely needs the minor leagues.  Players don't go from college straight to MLB.  Scrimmages are not going to make you major league ready.  It would cost them even more money to have games without fans. Plus how much would it cost to shuttle players back  and forth from Florida to say Detroit?   I think you are truly under estimating the value minor league baseball provides to MLB. I think this is all about the lawsuit from minor league players saying they are being paid below minimum wage.  I guess a simpler solution is lower the amount of bonuses you pay drafted players and increase salaries.  That would make the pay more equitable.  And provide housing for the players.  And cater their food.     
    • I hate to ruin this guy’s narrative, but Kevin Goldstein is hardly one of the “young finance and Wall Street bros.”    I don’t know exactly how old he is, but he’s got a 21-year old son, and so far as I know, he has no background on Wall Street or finance, having previously been a long-standing scouting guru for Baseball Prospectus.   And, he didn’t “immediately” send out his email after getting hired; he’d been working for the Astros for 5 years at that point.   
    • Just based on the eye test, this is the best team in football.  They are a more complete team than anyone else.  You do worry about Jackson getting injured, but I think every player other than Brady (somehow, in spite of his middle age) is susceptible to injury at any given time.  Just looking at the schedule, I think the Ravens will get the 2 seed.  It isn't that they can't win their last 6, because they can.  I just don't think New England is losing any more games.  The Patriots are not the Patriots of old and their final 15-1 record will be more indicative of their fortunate scheduling (having Dallas and KC at home helps a lot, as does 6 games against a pathetic division).  The Chiefs are not beating the Ravens twice, especially if the game is in Baltimore.  And no other AFC team is capable of winning in New England in January.  So I think it comes down to yet another Ravens-Patriots showdown in Mass.  The good news is this may be the only franchise not scared of the Patriots "aura and mystique," but they will have to beat them twice.  Hard to do. 
    • So baseball want in increase their fanbase and tweak the game, and keep current fans, bring back old fans, and attract new fans. So you go and screw with everybody minor league system.  
    • My granddaddy shot a 72 on his 72nd birthday. I shot a 60 back on my 60th, those rotating ducks was no match for me.
