vs. ASTROS, 8/10

Recommended Posts

That cleared the visitors bullpen and landed in the statue area.  I'm not sure I've ever seen that 

Someone finally up in the O's pen.  Kline.  Just started throwing after Correa's HR

My goodness.  Don't see one go over both bullpens that often.

Good Lord!!!!!! I've never seen a ball clear BOTH bullpens!

Juiced balls.  I'm sure with a normal ball it only would have cleared one bullpen.

474. Longest Camden HR in her history. At least it takes Darryl Strawberry off the record books...

..and yet, no one can hit a 440ft home run to right field. Not once.

It's gotta go further than that.  The warehouse sits higher than the playing field, and by a good bit.  If the warehouse and the playing field were on the same level, no doubt it'd have been peppered by now.

I remember David Ortiz hit one over both bullpens in the lightning game(the one where Nomar Garciaparra ran off the field before the umps suspended play). Think it was 2006 anyone remember it? It only sticks in my mind because I was at that game.

It has to be pulled too.  An alternate universe left-handed version of Correa wouldn't have hit the warehouse with that shot.  It wasn't pulled enough.  Would have been on Eutaw, maybe over and beyond Boogs, and might have hit the warehouse on the bounce.

I think I'd rather see Matusz get a couple of starts rather than this clown and Eshelman. That at least would be interesting, even if the other team lights up the scoreboard against Brian.

I'd just be curious to see if his face still gets all red.

After 2 innings, the Astros' team batting average for this game was over .500 )(8-for-14.)

After going 1-for-4 in the 3rd inning, that team batting average is now down to .500 )(9-for-18.)

 

Baby steps.

    • Here's some video, and more importantly some SOUNDS.  
    • #50THANNIVERSARY On this day in 1970 the Orioles lost to the Detroit Tigers 4-2 in Tiger Stadium.  Winning pitcher Les Cain held the Birds to just 4 hits on the day by Don Buford (2), Davey Johnson and Andy Etchebarren.  Jim Palmer took the loss, his sixth, with a 6.0 inning effort in which he surrendered 3 runs on 9 hits and struck out 2.  Palmer also surrendered a homerun to Don Wert. BOX SCORE 
    • How much did a September call-up help Schoop?    He made the OD roster the next year and put up a mighty .598 OPS.    Of course, his 4th year of Arb wouldn’t have mattered, the way things worked out.   But I’d still say he would have had more trade value in July 2018 if teams had an extra year of potential control to play with. I don’t want to belabor the point.    I’m sure with some thought I could come up with 25 examples of players who struggled the year after a September call-up but turned out to be good players, and 25 examples of guys who did really well after a September call-up.    None of that is going to change anyone’s mind.     At the end of the day, it’s unprovable whether a call-up would have benefited Mountcastle, and we won’t know for 6 years whether an extra year of control would have been important or not.    At some point we just need to move on and stop obsessing with this point.     
    • If he isn’t a major league player then none of this matters anyway. Great point. Obviously I agree he could benefit from seeing pitching and learning from it. I said as much in my post. Selfishly I wanted Mountcastle up sometime in the middle of the year last year. I thought he was ready. I think the odds are more remote the O’s see harm down the line, meanwhile, the potential benefit that you can effectively extend your competitive window by a year is signficant.
    • It isn’t about salary as much as it is about control. So it does matter. 
    • The argument is, if you are a service time manipulated guy, you are definitely a super 2 guy. So you are going to be one of the relatively rare guys who is under arbitration for 4 years. So, in the worst case scenario where you don’t end up that good, you aren’t tendered that long, so it never mattered. In the best case scenario, guys who are actually good enough to be tendered that long are essentially being paid free agent prices in their 4th year of arbitration anyway, so it doesn’t really matter. At least it doesn’t matter enough to hold a guy back. 
    • How much did it help Means? I think Mountcastle could have benefited from facing major league pitching, perhaps it would have helped him realize that just because you can make contact with a pitch it doesn't mean you should swing at it.  He also could have used more reps in the field. Going into the offseason with that kind of experience to build off of couldn't have hurt. As for the extra control?  Will he: Still be a major league player? Still an Oriole? Worth paying Arb 4? Not playing under an extension? All of the above assume no changes in the CBA.  I think the odds are pretty remote the O's see any benefit down the line.
