That was a quick trip to the bullpen for him...

Wonder who will come up?

Maybe Davis to the pen?? :) Seriously, I'm wondering about the pitch selection.  Givens ended the inning by blowing fastballs past guys. The game tying homer came on the third straight offspeed pitch.   I can hear Palmer's voice in my head saying "why speed up the bat?". I know the catchers suggest the pitches, the pitcher decides, and the bench calls pickoffs. Catcher and pitcher need to go with pitcher's strength, which in Givens case is fastball.

I’m still kinda bothered they didn’t let him finish the game in Toronto. 🤷‍♂️

I wish Hyde had let him go a bit longer. At the time I was happy that Hyde had a short leash, but it’s gotten a lot longer since then.

I like Hess, and I hope when he returns, he has found a workable solution to his troubles.

Either they are making a 40 man roster move or someone from AA is coming up. All the AAA arms on the 40 have not been down long enough or pitched today like Shepard and Scott.  

The AA arms are Tate and Harvey.

I bet they make a 40 man move.

Hyde left it so that Hess can enshrine it as the high point of his career.

I.e., nothing in AA at this point.

    • I don't know if he's underrated, he's been killing it since his McCoys days. This is what I was listening to.    
    • 60, again, with the Blue Jays still playing their home games in Buffalo because Canada still won't be allowing anybody in from the United States.
    • The Baltimore Orioles will not win the World Series in 2020. This is how the Orioles might win the World Series next year (2021) 1. Trevor Bauer (SP) - $35 million. The biggest need for the Orioles a TOR starter.  Bauer is the best FA pitcher on the market, and will command a large contract.  2. DJ LeMahieu (2B/3B) - $15 million.   Would have to decide whether it makes more sense to have LeMaheiu at third and Alberto at second or vice versa. 3. Alex Colome (CP) - $10 million.  While the Orioles bullpen did performances, there was a real problem with closer.   Colome fulfills this need.   Rotation: 1. Bauer 2. Means 3. Cobb 4/5 Two of Akin/Kremer/Eschelman Bullpen: Lakins/Scott/Armstrong/Fry CP: Colome Lineup: C  Two of Severino/Sisco/Rustchman 1B Mancini 2B LeMahieu SS Iglesias 3B Alberto LF Mountcastle/Stewart CF Hays/Mullins RF Santander DH - platoon of Stewart/Severino/Sisco/etc.                
    • You're welcome! Thanks for stopping by.
    • I was going to ask what makes him toolsy besides the power but Hoosiers post suggests he has speed and can go get the ball.  Sounds like the arm is average at best.  Is there any chance he's a potential CF?
    • I went for more accomplised over shiny new thing, so Bannon/Zimmerman.  However, something about Stauffer intrigues me, age, size, K's, under the radar. His is the only name I was surprised to see in the poll so I kinda hope it's him.
    • What TV revenue? The TV networks pay what they pay for postseason games.   National coverage of regular season games does nothing but fill air time and gets very low ratings.   In a typical season a nationally televised NFL preseason game will get higher ratings than nearly any regular season MLB game.   Fox & TBS pays MLB for the All Star Game and the postseason, they would probably not care if they didn't broadcast any regular season games because no one watches them.   Most baseball fans watch their local team every day.   ESPN is the same except that they do need something to fill programming hours on their networks so they have a little more motivation to broadcast regular season games.   But for the most part, the national TV contracts exist for the postseason.   And MLB knows it so they will try to have as short a season possible because they know Fox & company will still ante up almost as much.   Cut the season in half and Fox will still pay 90% of what they pay now because all they really want is to broadcast the big games in October. Yes, the local TV revenue exists.   Except in a lot of cases (Balt/Wash, NYY, Bos, many others) it's a team owned network paying the team for the games, so it's just a paper transaction. A higher chunk of MLB revenue comes from actual attendance than any other major sport.   So it's the one sport where the owners have a strong motivation for a shorter season.
