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)

    • Imagine the possibilities if Macphail was allowed to trade draft picks. I hope that’s in the new CBA. 
    • I saw these lists on MLBTR and thought I hope @Luke-OH has some info on these guys. Thanks.   
    • Hopefully the Astros are forced to fire this guy and he can quietly take a role with us. 
    • I think it’s more of the “I’ll believe it when I see it” mentality.  Right now we have $2.5 million just chilling. Ready for us to spend it.  This is how you prevent 14 straight years of losing. Our last winning year was 2016. I don’t think we sniff winning till 2023 with the state of our pitching staff. That’s 7 years and half way there.  We spent our full draft pull money this year. Seems odd we keep having this international pool money left over. Odd or... maybe some of that old philosophy is still lingering. 
    • I haven't looked at the position players, but there are a number of pitchers on that list who are interesting.  From a simple performance based analysis, Juan Minaya 29yo with 128 innings of 3.93 ERA ball in the majors. It's nothing exciting, but he's been a solid middle reliever. He's also tinkered with his offspeed/breaking pitches a bit and there may be some potential improvements in pitch mix/selection.  Chasen Shreve 29yo with 203 innings of 3.71 ERA ball in the majors. He was stuck in AAA this year because of the strength of the Cardinals bullpen, where he had a 3.45 ERA, a full 2.4 runs under the league average 5.85 ERA. His FIP numbers aren't good, but he's one of those few guys who consistently beats his FIP numbers.  An interesting spin rate dude, Dan Winkler Of 600 pitchers who threw 50 of more 4S fastballs in 2019, Winkler had the 15th highest RPM/MPH on his fastball. There is evidence that he's not using the pitch as well as he could, locating primarily middle of the zone and down, exactly where a high spin fastball plays poorly. Winkler is also only a year removed from a strong year as an important part of the Braves bullpen. He's only 29 years old.  Finally, a guy who is probably the riskiest of the group, but has serious stuff but has never put it together, Bryan Mitchell He's coming off a lost year, but at his best he averaged almost 95mph as a SP and added a 90mph cutter, and nasty high spin curveball. He should miss bats, but he doesn't. He's also battled some injuries. If he's healthy, he's the type of guy you sell the opportunity of the wide open O's pitching staff and you see if you can't make some tweaks to get him on track. He's 28 years old.
