Anatomy of our 12-11 run

The Orioles are 14-13 over their last 27 games.

Mediocrity never felt so good.

On June 27th, the Orioles had a 3-25 record in games decided by 5+ runs.  Since then, they are 8-6 in such games.

The stretch began with the most lopsided consecutive shutout wins in MLB history on 6/28-29 and included the longest streak of consecutive multi-HR games in MLB history.

Fans of the 1916 Giants could probably relate, but they are all gone now.

it looks like the first person might be a Cubs fan ,maybe one of the others was a Giant fan.

I'm not sure if that's a good thing, or a bad thing.

It's good. We're not catching Detroit.

I thought the plan was to get 1-1.

My post got lost...

 

I don't think that's THE plan, just part of it, benefit of it. 1-2 or 1-3 is still pretty good.

What exactly is THE plan? 1-2, 1-3 is very good, I agree. I'm just trying to figure out what the plan is.

I don't think the plan revolves around getting a particular draft pick.  It revolves around fielding an inexpensive team while the guys in the minors develop.

The poor record is a byproduct of the plan, not the goal.

Disappointed to break even with Toronto. I thought for sure we'd sweep the floor with them. But on the positive side, that's now 6 non-losing series out of the last 8. And we've maintained a winning record for the better part of a month, so that's incredibly encouraging.

What is the goal? I checked the attendance yesterday, we are now two spots from dead last. How much longer can we wait?

For this season or going forward?

If you mean this season I explained it in the bit you just quoted.

If it is the overriding goal it's to put forth a perennially competitive team with a strong farm system. (and hopefully win a ring)

    • Houston has also been able to acquire arms late in the draft or cheaply in the international market and develop them into trade assets. I'm prepping for Rule 5 draft stuff and it's unbelievable how many good arms they have in the minors that came out of nowhere (10+ round pick or older international signees). They all throw hard and miss bats. 
    • Hopefully the Nats finish this thing off today.  They have gone I think 81-40 since starting 19-31.  That is remarkable.  The Cardinals do what they always do in October....overachieve.  Thankfully, they are about to get stuffed by the much better team.  This will be a really good WS matchup regardless of who comes out of the AL. 
    • Eh, I don't really buy that in this case.  Liberatore is a lefty, has better mechanics, and more projection remaining, so I think there is a fair case for Liberatore then and now. It's really close though, Rodriguez is the better pitch at the moment, but no one really cares who is the better pitcher at 19 in low A ball. 
    • The old Liberatore vs Rodriguez debate. I think most “experts” will always try and rank Liberatore slightly higher than Rodriguez because they all criticized the O’s for “reaching” for Rodriguez. 
    • Someone pointed out before that Vaughn got pitched around his last year in NCAA. Let’s see what happens to Torkelson when/if he gets that treatment.  I don’t see how we could draft Torkelson.  Even if we trade Mancini, Mountcastle is still likely a 1B.  When team building I don’t think you pencil in your future 1B and DH spots first.   I’d like to see us draft a bat, but if the best SP is available then I’m open to that. I think that bats are safer picks and would help the system more.  Hopefully Detroit makes a mistake at 1:1 and we get the player Elias thinks is #1 overall. Lots of baseball to play till the draft. 
    • HOU got burned with taking Pitchers Appel and Aiken high. HOU has been grow the bats and buy the arms since then. Using their prospect bats to acquire proven SP.  I do think bats are safer picks over pitchers. Last draft we took lots of bats compared to pitchers. It could’ve been lots of factors at play, but I think it was a strategic decision.  Not having the number one pick in next years’ draft means we’ll likely be deciding on the 2nd best SP, Torkelson, or other NCAA and HS bats.    
    • I hope Buck gets the Phillies job.
