vs. YANKEES Game 1, 8/12

Recommended Posts

I asked earlier how Ynoa was doing, but I forgot to post the question. Now I think it’s unnecessary to do so.

And yes, I just know I still need to get some names of guys who should be called up, haven’t had time to do that yet I’ll do it on the plane tomorrow. But I’m certainly at the point where I’m happy letting go of Ynoa. He’s not terrible but… Oh who am I kidding? He’s terrible.

Hyde is confusing to me sometimes. He'll leave Ynoa in there to give up seven runs on, what, four homers in six innings? Put he pulls other guys early. He pulled Means in his last start after giving up that one home run though I guess that may have been due to not wanting to push him after returning from injury. He'll pull Eshelman for seemingly no reason at times or if he allows a couple solo homers after pitching well for several innings. I don't quite understand his methodology with the pitching. It seems inconsistent, but I am glad Ynoa was left in so try to work through it. There seems to be no rhyme or reason at times for pulling guys early or not pulling them early.

I see my hopes for Martin are likely a bit lofty.

Going 1-for-5 breaks even at .200, so hope for 1-for-4 or maybe he gets a walk or another hit. There's still hope!

You know what I don't understand about that approach to Urshella? Why do we shift him to pull and then pitch him away? Seems that would make it as easy as possible for him to do what he just did.

If the Yankees played us everyday for a full season, they'd lead in HR hits by so much, that you couldn't see the 2nd place team with the Hubble Telescope

Why indeed?

It's not like Martin is going to be around when the Orioles return back to the playoffs. 

Shoot, he might not make it through next year. My tongue was firmly planted in my cheek when I made my first comment.

Palmer has stated that on multiple occasions. Pitchers aren’t as good at pitching to their defense.

Look, Aaron Boone is using Britton in the game.  What a novel concept.

(sorry couldn't resist)

    • You can believe what you want. I do think that it is more than an arms length relationship. I've been around some of the reporters indeed some who have moved on and I never heard too much about Roch sugar coating things. I have seen that with some folks associated with MASN though. Real journalism requires at least an attempt at integrity.  Obviously as someone who has been covering one team so so very long there is a lean towards the polyannic.  If you are looking for the big expose to expose the horrors of all things Angelosian, he's not your guy. Pick Ken or Nester for that crap. Billionaires are not great people. We get it.  Back to the player subject here.   
    • I've never agreed being slow about promoting/keeping guys down that are already on the 40 man. You are burning option years w/o knowing how much work they need to do to adjust to the majors. You end up putting yourself in a out of options crapshoot a few years down the line with talented, but unfinished players. We know why they do it, but in a pure trying to build the best team I don't find it optimal in any way. It's a business thing, not building a better team thing.  backlogging non 40 man players into the rule 5 pool will happen regardless in a re-build. Though slow playing doesn't really help either. (It can disguise players and keep them from being picked if they are still in A ball)
    • Absolutely.  Even if they just guarantee you a one-year deal at $1M you might as well take it.  You just have to be willing to adapt to the Japanese culture, baseball and otherwise.  Not everyone does. Matt Stairs was in professional baseball for 20+ years, his time in Japan was 60 games of a .712 OPS when he was 27.  
    • And you know this how? I’m just trying to get clarification. I cannot recall a time when he was overly critical about the organization or a move that they made.   It’s just common sense that you don’t bite the hand that feeds you. That conflict moved needle from writing what he wants IMO  
    • I heard the clips on the radio this morning. I’m fine with the process and it seems like the deal progressed fairly quick. I would have been interested in the question of why quantity over quality. Obviously they didn’t play the whole show so maybe it was asked.    I don’t mind the deal as much as some here. But I would have preferred a player less with a more prestigious main player. But it’s mainly stating a preference for conversation as I really think it was a decent trade.
    • I think this would be a good signing. I think it's important to see what we've got (pitching wise) and the best way to do that is to back them up with above-average defenders behind him.  If we're not concerned about winning, let's try it.
    • Have no idea about the other player. Just know about Iglesias . Roch writes what he wants. He's as independent as Connolly or Trezza.  You write bad stuff too much, you lose access. The way of the world.
