As in the dark years, I approach each game as a microcosm...a season unto itself.  This is the only game, the whole season, right here, right now.  

Normally I'd be part of the crowd having the tough time. Lol

Means is gutting it out, here ........ shades of Richard Bleier, early last year before he sustained a season-ending injury.

Just shut up, and watch the game.

How about Givens set up man and Wright the closer?

Glad I'm not the only one to think this. Wright looked damn good in closing yesterday.

I've noticed the breaks are shorter this year. I can't get to the bathroom and back before they're back on.

Or you could be getting older.  # of pees and pee duration both go up with age, I have found.

John Means: 3 1/3 IP, 4 runs surrendered while he was pitching (3 charged to Bundy), 2 scoreless innings, 1 inning surrendering a solo dinger, and got out of the bottom of the 4th bases loaded 2 outs jam with a lead.

A few of his deliveries looked to REALLY fool the Yankees. Deception pitcher. But when they aren't fooled, like Sanchez, it goes a long way.

He threw 80 pitches. That's a LOT for a reliever.

I say Means did a good job.

It sounded like he used to be a starter, listening to the commentary.

They definitely stretched him out this spring.

    • Sorting of wishing the Orioles could play the Pirates 18 times a season right now instead of the Yankees, Rays, etc. 
    • One of my favorites from them/him. I'm still pretty torn up by all this. Him and Anthony Bourdain both, messed me up they were so f-ing stupid...  
    • Looks like an Israeli company has developed a test, hope it can be mass produced quickly.
    • Echoed.  I heard beat reporter Susan Slusser on the FG team preview podcast call Kemp the favorite.  Their lineup except Olson is exclusively RHH, so Kemp gets the edge on Barreto/Mateo there.  Plus they have Neuse hopelessly blocked by Chapman so they had him goofing with 2B Moustakas style last September.  And they took a Rule V infielder. Hanser Alberto might be Oakland's fourth string 2B. I am almost positive Oakland will keep whichever of Barreto/Mateo they like best to succeed Semien, who despite being beloved has likely played his way out of their price range. MLBTR has summarized: https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/02/athletics-second-base-franklin-barreto-jorge-mateo-2020.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+MlbTradeRumors+(MLB+Trade+Rumors) The Tigers have Schoop, so if I'm figuring correctly we should have a shot at first claim if we want.  Perhaps Luke is thinking of just the right lowball token guy right now.
    • I put up a better version I have on my harddrive  
    • 3 years before he put it on vinyl! 1973. This is really the version that runs thru my head... besides the commercial version you've heard 10,000 times. Skip this^^^^^ Watch this one! vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
    • That’s a worthwhile take, and not something to entirely rule out.  They pitch with different levels of maturity today so perhaps you’re more right than you think, but I value the speed changing ease that Hall can utilize and their stuff is otherwise close to even.  Ranking them closely is intelligent and there’s data to support you too.  Still, it’s hard to not have Hall higher due to ceiling height potential alone....it could end up higher and he’s further from his peak than Baumann is; two significant factors.   I don’t see him thriving at Norfolk initially either and he may not be in the class of their rotation at the season’s start.  8 to 13 starts into the year however it might be a case of him going up and never looking back.   Strong supporters of him like you and I probably expect this on some level.  That’s a mean 1-2 punch and I’m happy to have both in our colors.  I want lots of innings and lots of learning if there’s adversity.  Ornery Baumann could be devastating and having him in a tier by himself is logical.
