vs. NYY 4/7 Is .500 still Doable?

Recommended Posts

Richie Martin gets a "blow" as it were.  Is Alberto the Hanser?  Smith Jr.'s hit streak is ringing Jim Hunter's bell!  What about "D.J." Hess??  Is HE legit?  Mancini is a beast and a burden to German.  Will this be Davis' first hit of season or will hitless streak continue?  Stay tuned!

Gather your pretzels and chips and I will go await the Silver Lining Thread for last night.  As Brandon Hyde said, “I just love the fight in our guys. I think we’re playing really good baseball. We’ve just had a couple tough pitches out of the ‘pen recently. But I love how we’re playing the game. We’re playing really well defensively, playing no-fear offensively, grinding out at-bats against tough pitching. A good team. So I’m really proud of how we’re playing.”

Newest Oriole, Dan Straily, is available in relief today per Joe Trezza (via Hyder).

Fun fact - D.J. Hess' "official" MLB.com nickname is "Hesser".  Pretty unique!

So much for the no hitter.   Palmer was right too...”This ain’t Toronto”.  Hopefully Sucre remembers that too. 

 

Well, maybe not....This is going to be the case all year....occasional well pitched games then the same guy comes out the next time and reverts to form.

Does this mean Sucre isn't some sort of game calling/pitch framing savant?

Yes.   And it would also be helpful if he caught all the pitches that hit his glove.  lol.

    • Bleier trade continues to bite the O's last night.  Fry  could not find the plate especially against right-handed batters. Needing to face three batter in not Fry's game.    It didn't affect the outcome because the O's didin't  hit.  However, Fry does not look up to being the 2nd lefties in the pen  which shows how much the O's miss Bleier.  Fry would be a candidate to be sent down but there is no lefty to replace him so he will probably stay in the majors.
    • SummerSlam ‘92 is on FS1.  Quarantine + Nostalgia = Mullet for backwardsk ?
    • I missed another game. My sleep schedule sleep patterns are SOOOOOOOO screwed up... I laid down for a quick nap before the game about 4:30. When I woke up at MIDNIGHT I had missed the entire thing. Turned on the TV to watch the 11:30 replay and THANK GOD the Gnats are back playing! They're the replay tonight... fml     So.... I'm not going to read the thread or the board. Or Roch. It's 1:30 am. I'm having my "morning" glass of coffee (yes BIG TALL GLASS) and I'm going to watch the 9 am MASN replay "live". So I have THAT going for me. 🙃 GO O'S!!!!

    • Now that does make sense: greater risk, greater reward. So do healthy pitchers make more than healthy batters? Serious question.
    • On his pro-rated salary, Cobb would earn @ $4.5MM the rest of this season. That would be nothing for a contending team to take on if they were sold on him putting them over the top. But I can't imagine being so desperate on August 4, 10 games into a 60 game season if I were a decision maker to take on the entirety of his contract.  If a team really wants to gamble a little bit of cash on Cobb to win this year's WS, they may be wrangled into taking half the burden on the 2021 salary, while the Orioles pay half of this season's $4.5MM remaining. This is starting to sound too good to be true!
