Next two games should be hard on the O's offense

Recommended Posts

Stroman always gives us fits. Hopefully Davis gets into one.  It’s about darn time. Martin is allowing himself to get jammed, but his defense is just too good right now to take him out the lineup. 

Idk how we’re going to do it but the offense needs to keep coming through.

We are going to have 3 guys in our lineup who just cant hit. We need to stack our lineup with hitters.

Stroman dominated us in the spring. He dominated us last year. I'm scared of him. 

I think Alberto starts at SS tonight and Jackson starts at 2B.

Why sit Villar?

i think Rickard starts and Mullins sits.

yeah, the O's can't sit one of their only major league hitters.

 More worried about our relief pitching than our hitting. I believe with our aggressiveness and speed, we can come up with a few runs.

Our offense has consistently outscored our opponents and won 3 of 4 games to start the season.   

Fixed that for ya.    

 

 

PS enjoy it while it lasts.  It's written in dust and as I'm sure you know...all we are is dust in the wind.

You are right of course, but MLB rules prohibit us using players from other teams to stack our lineup.  Our lineup is going to be stacked, just not the way you envision.

Rickard, yes.  Don't know why we would be sitting Mullins with a righty on the bump.

What did you fix? I didn't make that statement that was in quotes or at least I can't find it. Wouldn't be the first time I lost something and won't be the last. lol

I guess you are correct, I forgot that we are facing a right hander. On the other hand, maybe Jackson in RF and Rickard in Center?

It seems that several positions are becoming set. 2B, SS, LF, 3B I think have been the same so far.

After 4 games nothing is set except Davis unfortunately. He should be sit not set.

Rickard does most of his damage against LHP.  If Jackson were to be in the OF it would be in Rickard's stead, rather than Mullins, I would think.  His arm could be an asset in RF as well.

Our offense has consisted of three guys, Smith, Villar, and Mancini. One good game by Nunez, Sucre and a big homer by Joey Bats. The rest, meh.

I kept the bold and "Fixed" the rest.  It was back one page but I um...edited heavily.

Ok so Jackson in RF tonight and Cedric in C. I can live with that.

Stroman and Shoemaker pitched 7 shutout innings is their last starts.

Pretty good call here.    They were both pretty tough on us, though we finally got 2 off Stroman in the 6th.

    • 44,003 for the last three games for 1.3 million.Paid attendance should be close.Really nothing to be excited about but understandable. The last two years the Orioles have lost more games at home then any time ever in a 162 game season.Not sure if it is ever..Mets and Tigers both lost 107 at home consecutively . Tough to watch such bad home team baseball. Still would be the worst average hone attendance since 1978 and of course worst ever at Camden Yards.
    • Do you have a link to this pipeline article?
    • Haha I had totally forgotten.
    • I have the same issues, bad back (and down my right leg) and rotator cuffS. Doesn't wake me up tho. Yes, because of beer I sleep like a baby. I do however wake up start awake many times after 5 or 6 hours. Just from deep sleep to wide awake. I've learned to just get up, fire up my computer and waste some time, Not one drop of coffee. Take my morning drugs, several of which help or cause sleep. Go back to bed in 2 hours or stay up and take a nap in the afternoon. Tossing and turning in bed is never going to be sleep. I can't multi quote it right but I like waking up and having to go to the potty. Every night please! Let's play two! Makes the night seem longer to me.
    • Good points Drungo! I like the idea of working backwards from the desired outcomes of a system. Goal 1: Service time should no longer be a deciding factor in free agency or player promotion. I think automatic free agency after the age 27 season would be good (or after age 23 if they've never made it to the majors), with a better compensation system worked out between the team that signs and the team that loses the guy in free agency. Maybe a % of the contract value? Goal 2: Significantly reduce the bloated, inefficient system. Limit minor league affiliates to 2 full season teams, 1 short season team, and whatever overseas academies they want. Pay the minor leaguers better. Cut the draft in half (20 rounds).
    • As long as it isn't DJ on horseback! Otherwise I'd worry that the ball would hit the horse square in the forehead, risking career-ending injury to the glove (not whip)-wielding jockey as its knees buckled.
