Yeah, we knew they aren't good, but they've been downright sad of late. Lots of guys in deep slumps. Oh well, guess we just need enjoy those rare wins.

 

Well, the game on Sunday gave me some hope that they weren't going to go into this series completely cold.  But maybe two days off was too much.

Man a ton of hate for Cashner in this thread, in a game where he gave up 2 runs on 4 hits and 2 walks in 6 innings against a top notch team in a hitter's park.

What?  I called him the team ace.  That's a compliment.

Easy place to be when it’s 96-97 with sink.

Filthy 

Looks like vintage Britton.

IMO, as long as the Yankees have Ottavino, Britton, Chapman (I'm forgetting someone else) healthy, I think they can sustain their injuries elsewhere and give Houston a run for their money.  Their offense is still effective for now and it's pretty much game over if they have a lead into the later innings.

Heads up running by Villar but...that could have been really stupid.

Wasn’t worth it to try that, down 2. But he made it.   Still don’t like the decision.

Agreed.

Kahnle has a 1.04 ERA. Happ isn’t really performing to expectations, but their rotation is good enough to get through 6 IP on most nights.

    • I am right in line with those who want to see the Orioles win as many games as they can this year, and even better if those wins come with big contributions from those who are counted on to be, or can build a case to be, part if a winning Oriole team a couple of years from now. I don't doubt for a minute that every player who has worn an Orioles uniform in 2021 has tried his best to make the team succeed. I have the same certainty about Hyde and the coaches. The problem I have is with Elias (and, I guess, John Angelos, although I don't know how involved he is in implementing the Orioles' rebuilding strategy, including the extreme stinginess in building this season's roster). Elias is the executive v.p. and general manager of the Baltimore Orioles. It's customary -- insulting to the fans, and probably unwise -- for general managers to say little about the team or their plans, and to let the manager do the talking. Elias largely follows that model; he rarely speaks, and when he does he discloses very little. But it sure seems that he doesn't have any interest in how the team he was hired to lead -- his team -- plays this year. Does he go to Orioles games? Does he watch them on TV? It wouldn't surprise me if he does neither. I suspect that if he worked for me, and the facts were available to me, I would conclude he had badly neglected one part of his job. I don't think Elias gives a damn whether the Orioles win 40 or 50 or 60 games this year, and his actions have given lots of observers reason to believe, or take as a serious possibility, that those moves reflect a goal of having the Orioles win fewer games to get an earlier draft pick. (If that were true, and it's almost inconceivable that we'll ever know, I think Elias should be fired and perhaps barred from baseball.) I sure don't think he cares, if he even knows, about how his rebuilding strategy has discouraged fans and led to terrible attendance (fifth worst in MLB if you ignore Toronto, ahead of only the Florida teams, Oakland and Pittsburgh). I wish he would make some effort to show that he cares about his team's performance as much as the Orioles' players and remaining fans do.
    • From what I’ve read, there are also some issues about whether there’s a sufficient supply of the quality of leather used for major league balls.  
    • 3/4 so far today with a double and another stolen base.  Currently has a .333 average with a .993 OPS. Mayo, and perhaps Baumler to a lesser extent, were always going to be under the microscope with the underslot strategy but it's even more intense now with Kjerstad dealing with his illness. Couldn't ask for a better start so far for Mayo. 
    • Cheap and stupid. I honestly never knew that and been watching baseball for 30+ years. 
    • Glad to see this promotion.   Hopefully he’ll adjust quickly to that level.  
    • Saves about $100K per minor league team over the course of the season. MLB owners are incredibly cheap.
    • I’ve never understood why they use a different ball from the big leagues? What’s the purpose?
