So you are saying Sisco has the arm strength to get a ball into center field?

Sweet!

Only on several hops.

15 to 11 right now, going into the bottom of the 6th inning in Louisville.

That sounds like a mediocre Cardinals college football team struggling with Division I-AA Old Dominion University from Norfolk, VA.

The law firm of Mountcastle, Sisco and Stewart certainly has been fun to watch of late.    They usually bat consecutively and here’s what they’ve done in May:

Mountcastle: .363/.393/.538, 2 HR 14 RBI

Sisco: .339/.455/.677, 6 HR, 18 RBI

Stewart: .458/.521/.932, 5 HR, 25 RBI.

That’s insane.

When you don't promote folks when they are ready for promotion these things are more likely to happen.

 

Has to be rough for opposing teams.

I’m happy to see these guys making it tough for the O’s to keep them down, rather than being handed opportunities by default.  

As to the opposing teams, they don’t have much to worry about in the other six spots in the lineup.  But with these three carrying the load, the Tides are averaging a “tide-y” 5.60 runs a game (see what I did there?).    Unfortunately the pitchers are yielding 5.64 runs/game.    Very un-Norfolkish numbers this year, even adjusting for the new baseballs.    It’s rare to see the Tides in the top half of the league offensively considering their home ballpark.    

PS - each of the “big 3” have much better numbers in Harbor Park than on the road.    I wonder if something has changed down there.

Watching the Tides in Colombus for a 4 game series in June.  Pretty excited to watch “the big 3”.  Unless of course they are needed in Bmore.

    • The weather clause only "trumps" the equipment malfunction clause in the sense that, IF the equipment didn't malfunction (or was unintentionally used improperly), THEN the equipment malfunction clause isn't grounds for suspending the game anyway. If the equipment malfunction (or unintentional misuse thereof) IS the proximate cause (the most direct event) of the game being unable to be completed today, then the rule kicks in and the game is suspended.  Think about it this way: "But for" the grounds crew's failure to use the tarp properly, the game would have resumed less than an hour after the rain started, because there wasn't enough rain to call the game under "normal" circumstances, because a reasonably deployed tarp would have kept the infield playable after a small amount of work on it after the rain. There is no amount of rain that can fall in 15 minutes that would prevent a reasonably competent 21st century grounds crew from successfully using a tarp or other device (e.g. closing a roof) to prevent the field from getting so wet that the game can't be resumed the same day. The only way the Orioles should've been entitled to a 5-game win today is if the rain was so persistent, or the volume of it so high, that despite correct procedures being taken, the amount of time required to wait out the rain and then make the field playable would've been unreasonably long in the judgment of the umpires. But that didn't happen, so one of two things should have happened today: either (1) the grounds crew correctly deployed the tarp, and we resumed the game about an hour later, or (2) the grounds crew did not correctly deploy the tarp, and we resume the game another date.  Seems perfectly straightforward to me. This is how law in the US works, by, the way. If someone punches you in the face, you can't then fall on the ground and decide to intentionally roll around in a bed of nails, then sue for both the punch and the injuries from the nails. The guy who punched you is responsible for the punch, but not for you deciding to roll around in the bed of nails.  Here is the precedential case law: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palsgraf_v._Long_Island_Railroad_Co.
    • There's a whole discussion in the last few pages of the game thread.  Rules have different things to say about games where the weather says you can't resume, or games where non weather causes like electrical or grounds crew failures.  All the specific rules are quoted there, and they are hard to interpret.  Go there for the gory details if you want.
    • So what happens if players are no longer there, like the baserunners? Do we just replace them with someone else, like a pinch runner?
    • BTW, Kevin Gausman is tossing a gem in the same game. Although as I type that, Gabe Kapler just pulled him in the 7th after he gave up a single with just 80 pitches. KG is not happy.  
    • o   The Orioles did everything that they possibly could to make this happen ........ now, they'll have to wait until Friday to make it official.    o
    • They are both interesting, for different reasons.     Would be nice if you could combine their two skill sets into one pitcher.
