Uh-oh! Playing .500 Ball for a Month

The wins have been fun and I could never root against the team during a game, but a winning August could really screw up the draft. There are three teams clustered together with 39 wins. If the Orioles catch that group, then it will be time to give Ortiz and company a couple of starts and rest a few players. 

Look at our schedule from August 5 -28.  We won't have a winning August.

Now from Aug 30 to the end of the season could be a totally different story.

Detroit has a 2wins 1 loss against the orioles.  We do play them 4 more times in Detroit in September 13th through 17th.  As long as they are within 2 or 3 games we can control a tie with them and have them take the yearly record.

Right now I think the O's could maul Detroit, so being even in the standings when they match up might not work.

You already answered your own question.  It took the rare convergence of a terrible Detroit month and a .500 Orioles month to give Detroit the #1 pick by all of 2 games.   The last time the Orioles won 7 more games in a month than Detroit.....June 2015 (18-11).

Future winning percentage = [(winning percentage over past 10 games) + (nothing)]/1

You can use the same formula for batting average, OPS, ERA, etc.  But try to only use it when the subject in question is playing dramatically better than the so-called experts thought he would.

The goal of a sports team is to win. If that means we pick third instead of first, that’s ok by me.

Although realistically it’s between 1 and 2. The Royals and Marlins are comfortably ahead of us.

9 games in August.  80 runs allowed (and counting), 55 in last 5 games...or am I jumping the gun?

    • Here’s a comparison of the 2019 and 2020 bullpens.   Due to the shortened 2020 season, I’m focusing on rate stats: 2019: 5.79 ERA, 1.514 WHIP, 8.6 K/9, 2.12 K/BB, 4.04 IP/game, 50% save rate, 38% inherited runners scored,  2020: 3.90 ERA, 1.272 WHIP, 8.8 K/9, 2.27 K/BB,  4.19 IP/game, 61% save rate, 32% inherited runners scored Overall, a very solid improvement in every area.  We had a solidly average bullpen in 2020.     As an aside, in the course of looking at these stats I noticed that the Kansas City Royals had a 95% save rate last year (19/20) despite the fact that their bullpen ERA was a decent but not great 3.84.     That’s rather astounding, and unlikely to be repeated.     
    • I agree that most of these guys are completely replaceable...but it would likely be trading better players than these to get players that can probably be picked up for nothing.   Not sure what or who you think the Os should trade.
    • I cannot imagine how Cot’s projects Sanchez at $4 mm.   We’re talking about a guy who was non-tendered in 2019, was signed to a minor league deal by the Giants and later released, then was signed to a minor league contract by the White Sox and released again.    If the O’s offer him any kind of major league deal he should jump at it.
    • Who said anything about teams taking on these players?
    • You really think there are teams out there that want to take on these guys and go to arbitration with them?
    • I have zero desire to see Mullins get any amount of significant playing time and I have serious doubts the Os do either.  He has a spot on the team as your 4th/5th OFer type guy but he shouldn’t be anything more than that. Stewart I can see but, the team is telling us they will platoon him at best and his injury history isn’t exactly on his side. Not to mention, he does have an option remaining, so he could be in AAA.    Stewart brings a better walk rate but not sure what he can provide in the field (which isn’t much at all) makes up for anything else.  Not like Nunez is way older or super expensive. If Nunez was making 5+ million, it would be different.  But we are talking 2ish million here.  It’s nothing and his roster spot blocks nothing to begin the year. Again, this is 100% money driven...not roster management driven.
