Not too many  of these guys are getting claimed.  For example Broxton and Wilkerson would not be claimed.

I agree. But for some reason they haven’t been. But even if a guy is claimed, so what? I don’t care if Castro is claimed, or Bleier, or Alberto or anybody. We have 27 wins. We got no jewels in this treasure box. Rickard always had his head in the game and almost never made bonehead mistakes. I’d rather have him than Smith or Broxton, but oh well. They chose to dump him.

I meant not being the worst team in baseball.  

I want them to be. I just hope for more competitive baseball like we saw the last 10 days. They can be competitive game to game and still lose a lot.

I agree that there are a few pitchers who might be called up. 

But if you get rid of Smith or Broxton, who takes their place? The position player cupboard is pretty bare.

Fine to try to trade Villar, but I doubt there's a deal there. If there is, it likely would be right at the deadline. 

Villar has no value. He was with the bad Astros, the bad Brewers and now the bad Os. Bad player for a bad team.

Pretty sure I remember some Rickard misadventures in the outfield.

There was a reason the Brewers traded him for a different second baseman.

Martin is the worst player on this team.

I think that goes to Smith Jr right now. There is literally nothing he excels at and several things he's horrible at. Martin, as a defensive replacement/pinch runner/backup player, is fine on this team anyway. So long as he's not starting on a regular basis, but at least he brings something to the table. I can't believe Smith is still getting in the lineup as much as he is at this point.

Why pitch him when literally everyone was rested?

Hyde just said postgame he didn’t notice anything. They talked after 1st.

Lurch noise.

Bundy comes across as the kind of guy that would pitch with a gunshot wound.  

Said he felt it in Long Toss, then bullpen and game. Was asked if he thought about telling Hyde, said might of been a slight thought.

I ignored the internet, to (expectantly) watch a Friday night 11:30 replay for this??? Turned that f-er off by midnight!

Hopefully tomorrow will be a different story.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lose by only 6 runs... or better yet lose by only 3.

    • You are really bringing it this year Steve. Great job once again!
    • Hit the snot outta that one
    • From Roch: The plan includes David Hess, who could be a starter or reliever on the club. His role is pending. “We’re going to see how the first three or four appearances go and giving him multiple innings and make a decision from there,” Hyde said. Hess threw in the bullpen earlier today and has been impressive since taking home an offseason program from the Premier Pitching & Performance center in St. Louis. “I think that the offseason was huge for him,” Hyde said. “He did have a tough year and it’s one of those adversity moments that a lot of guys have in their career and hopefully he can use that as a learning experience and know what he needs to work on. “I think they got after it this winter. I know our pitching guys are really happy with the progress he’s made, the shape on all of his pitches. Made a couple tweaks mechanically in his delivery and so far the results have been really good. So we’re going to get a good look at him the next five, six weeks.”
    • Bullpen game to start spring training........ gonna be a long year........     jk, looking forward to following the game.
    • I think Diaz’ best skill will be turning on pitches, that’s not to say he’s immobile or near it but my eye sees hitter more than fielder if one has to win.  I don’t have any evidence of his throwing arm as of yet but am pretty eager to see those drills.
    • You have decided because he didn't want to work on his swing he has no work ethic or discipline. I would say that points to ego/stubbornness or something else, not necessarily work ethic. If you say "I'm not doing that because I don't think it will help" that may be delusional but it doesn't mean poor work ethic. In any case, you can have work ethic in one thing and not another. Maybe he likes to lift and doesn't like hitting all that much anymore. If so it wouldn't be hard, with no job, to lift 5-7 times a week. It doesn't take 8 hours. 
    • Tell you what, the one thing that is clear from reading this thread is that announcers are certainly "personal taste" for the viewer/listener. Some people love a guy/gal, some dislike them. Kudos to the Orioles bring some different perspectives. Personally I hope some of the new announces will delve into the stat cast era of statistics and not worry about how many "steaks" a player has. Saying that, it must be a balance for there a lot of older fans who don't understand or want to understand these new stats. No offense to anyone, but the fact there is little chance of a Hunter/Bordick booth made my day.  Nothing worse then having our announcers act like you just collected a game winning HR in the bottom of the 9th when it's a meaningless home run down 10-2 in the 8th inning. The appropriate amount of excitement for the moment was a struggle or Hunter.  I also hope none of the new announcers will come from that same "describe everything the TV camera shows" to the TV viewer who is watching the same thing. Also, during replays, don't describe what happened again, provide actual analysis or if there is none to add, allow it to just happen.  Either way, I look forward to the new crews to see what they add.
