It's so funny. Santander's fan club doesn't completely understand the rules of the game and look confused that a foul ball isn't a home run. They don't seem to know why Santander is on first base now, either. lol

Cricket doesn't have foul balls.

...and in comes Dillon Tate. Something tells me Eshelman isn't going to get the win in this game either.

I know he's made some mistake pitches and given up some HRs in his two outings, but his stuff has looked good, decent comand.   He kind of passes the eye test, just has to limit the mistake pitches.

A better RF might get to that ball.

But whaddya gonna do?   We only have one outfielder on the roster right now and he's in left.

And the mistakes were Superball driven as well...

They need to switch him back and forth from left to right depending on the spray chart of the batter.

Well, he got a strikeout and gave up a cheap bloop hit.

Since then it's been kind of ugly.

I think he can be a #4 or #5 starter if he can sort some things out. He's not terrible. I don't think he's been at his best yet, but we'll see.

Each ball good for three bounces before it's lost in the aether.

    • Hasn't that been one of our biggest complaint about a lot of the pitchers we've tossed out there the last few years, many of whom are no in Korea?¬† ¬†They don't have a pitch they can finish guys off with. I'm sure sample size is a factor, but it does look like they have proactively attacked a team weakness and made at least some improvement.
    • Is that true? I remember that being part of the negotiations but I dont think it ended up being part of the deal since MLB unilaterally set the number of games. MLBTR seems to think there are still qualifying offers and so does Twitter, based on my searching. Mets beat writer seems to think a qualifying offer is still an option¬†and nobody is correcting her, and since she is a woman on the internet writing about sports, I imagine she would be corrected by a million dudes if she was wrong.
    • I don‚Äôt disagree with anything you said, and I‚Äôm grateful you said it. Everyone needs a designated driver. But¬†lemme play devil‚Äôs advocate for a moment. This is 60 games. ~12 starts instead of 30. 60 starters instead of 162, and several guys who can start a time or two and not ruin our lives. One¬†trait of greatness is consistency. Over¬†60, that is less important¬†than over 162. Our starters and our pen¬†appear much superior to the last couple years. Not enough to matter in 162¬†because the long season takes a toll, And quality-or lack thereof- finds its level,¬†but in 60 games? Sure. And remember the short season doesn‚Äôt help the best, because the best doesn‚Äôt need the benefits a short season offers. The defense is much better too, unless Nunez is playing third, anyway. so yes I agree with you, but it‚Äôs not out of the question. ¬†
    • This was a nice read.¬† And that's not sarcasm.
    • No qualifying offers this season.
    • If Stroman gets a qualifying offer¬†he would cost the O's their third pick (either the comp pick after round 2 or, if that pick is traded, their third round pick). Jake Odorizzi got a QO this off-season at the same age as Stroman with a less successful career to date. I think it is quite likely that Stroman gets one too.
    • I appreciate¬†Wildcards's enthusiasm and optimism. This season is such a wildcard because of all the variables that really anything could happen and I wouldn't be overly surprised. Saying that, there is no reality where this is the beginning of a sustainable winning core.¬† There is just as much of a chance of this team losing ten straight games as they do of keep playing .500 ball the rest of this season.¬† As Drungo has point out, there are some guys who have started out this season way above their carer norms. Even if you believe Severino, Ruiz, Alberto and Nunez are breaking out as they enter their primes, does anyone think Cobb, Milone and Wojo are going to keep pitching to their current ERAs? Cobb maybe since it seems his splitter has come back, but I'm not buying long term sustainability on Milone and Hyde has used Wojo right but not letting him go more than twice through an order.¬†
