Justin Verlander leads the Major Leagues in Home Runs Ceded (26), but he also leads the Major Leagues in WHIP (0.813) and the American League in Hits-Per-9 Innings (5.400) ......... hence, I would presume that that is part of the reason for his very solid ERA of 2.98 (he gives up round-trippers, but not a lot of base-runners.)

Not sure if this goes here, but that was an absolutely awesome display of pure power by Vlad Jr. in the home run derby.

I guess I could act offended that a rookie with an OPS+ of 100 and 225 career at bats is in the derby over say Shohei Ohtani (142 OPS+).

Ball was whistling off of his bat

Was just watching some MASN clips from before and after the last couple games. Hyde talking pre-game Sunday about the last couple games, talking about Aaron Brooks, Cash talking about his last killer start, Wojo (still don't know how to spell it...) talking about his couple starts and how he thinks he'll get more starts.

John Means, talking about finally breaking thru from 5 inning starts to 7 innings, (Wednesday?) Got to wondering if he gets in the game (He and Aroldis Chapman are the only two leftys on the AL squad, so he'll almost certainly pitch) how he's going to do facing an All-Star lineup. Who he'll face. Maybe he'll face Manny (among others...)

Did Manny make the NL squad? I don't even know.

 

 

Anyways, my stream of consciousness post about John Means and the AS game.  Hope he kills! Wish I could watch it.

This is the vid on MASN I was actually looking for. Popped up on my suggesties tonight on my lunch break, didn't have time to watch it. Late last year and the spectacular Bobby Dickerson coaching Nunez on tagging at 3B. Great stuff!

I'm just Vlad that it's over, and that they didn't risk lousing up Ohtani in the stupid Derby.

Imagine if Baltimore would have been selected for the All Star Game

First All Star Game ever cancelled

Multiple massive water main breaks

Tunnel fire that has one of largest intersections in the city closed all day

What a mess, not sure BMore will ever see another MLB All Star Game

Who were the rock and rollers playing guitars on the dugout during intros. A hot take on Sweet Child of Mine indeed.

    • Lol. Because we have to room to make our 2 rule 5 selections. 
    • I’m torn on Mckenna. I see your points about Fry and Armstrong. I think we have some relievers that would be “good” if they were on a team that could use them in traditional ways. Like Fry, Scott, Armstrong, Castro, and even Bleier, but we’re not a traditional team. We’re a team struggling to cover innings.  That’s why I Was surprised we let Ynoa and Brooks both go. I could see one but not both. Those were two guys you could stick in any game and say you just gotta eat innings.  Having one inning relievers on this team is pretty pointless, outside of Givens.  Will we be able to do the Norfolk shuttle now, since there really aren’t those guys on the roster now to shuttle up and down?  They’re now prospects that we’d like to leave in their SP regimen. 
    • Why would anyone need to be DFAd in that scenario with five open roster spaces?
    • The O's really needs to add  near term starters.  And to sign them Elias may have to offer a 40 man roster spots.  I see Armstrong and Fry vulnerable to being left go in order to sign some guys that offer more innings. Wojo types.   Kyle Moore says Fenter has three plus pitches.  As bad as the O's need starters I can't see  them exposing a guy like that to the draft.  Even if he ends of being a multi inning reliever if he has three plus pitches he is too good to expose IMO. If the O's had the room I would protect McKenna but when I try to fit him on the 40 man with the need for starters, long relievers and adding Mountcastle I run out of room.  
    • Thanks for the great analysis @Tony-OH @Luke-OH.   Do you guys think Mullins has been officially asked to give up switch hitting?  
    • 26 man roster thought... A six man rotation would benefit everyone. I know, I know... we can barely find 5 SP(really 3), but it could allow us to start Harvey in 3IP stints, and go from there.  Means - would his fb play up, or could it hurt the feel for his secondaries? Bundy - always benefits from the extra rest  Cobb - has been hurt the last two years, so... Wojo - his stuff could play up Akin - a good way to break him into the MLB.  Wasn’t going deep into AAA starts. Harvey - we get to see if he can start with extra rest and a controlled environment. Also this would be a good way to introduce future pitching prospects as either spot starters or for long relief one game. Or why couldn’t we just piggyback guys like they do in the minors to start the year. What is the downside?  We lose 110 instead of 105?
    • Just reminds of how strange a year 2012 was. Roberts was a non-contributor to that team. I can’t say I be same about Markakis, he just caught a tough break from CC. The first time we make the playoffs after all those years and those two weren’t factors in the playoffs.
