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.

    • 1.  Belanger 2.  Blair 3.  F. Robinson 4.  B. Robinson 5....   Oops.  Wrong century.  I'm in reminisce mode.
    • Came across this gem.  Viqueens vs the Chifs.  This is when football was a man's game.  No showboating.  Just playing the game.  
    • As of now for OD, (5) SP: Means, Cobb, Wojo, K. Stewart, Valdez (8) BP: Givens, Bleier, Castro, Armstrong, Scott, Harvey, Bailey, Rucker (9) LU: Hays, Smith Jr., Mancini, Santander, Nunez, Ruiz, Alberto, Severino, Iglesias  (4) Bench: Sisco, Urena, Wilkerson, Davis  
    • Remember that Miguel Gonzalez started the 2012 season in AAA for us. He was 28.  https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=gonzal004mig Gonzales also had tied to our then GM’s former team, BOS. Valdez has had a longer track record of success. It looks like he’s a guy that never got a chance because he couldn’t throw hard enough.  This is one of the few fun parts about rebuilding. You get to see players like Valdez that are hungry to make it and this is their big chance.   
    • Thanks for putting the list together. I’d want Sanchez, Vargas, Estrada. Those are the only players I’d offer a mlb deal to.   The rest of those guys on that last have serious injury and/or performance issues. I’ll never be mad at an milb deal though.  We can offer 30-35 GS. Would they take an Iglesias type deal of 1/$3million?
    • As usual the combine will change things as players climb and slide.
    • Two who should not be in: Bonds and Clemens: Never.  Their statistics are inflated due to steroids and letting cheaters in is not a good message. Manny Ramirez too.  There are too many players in the Hall who don't deserve to be there based on their accomplishments.  Standards have been lowered in certain cases. . Gary Carter for example.  I'd consider Schilling and Fred Lynn but I'd have to look at their lifetime stats first. Rivera should not have been the first unanimous choice when so many other great players were not unanimous.  Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, Frank Robinson, they were far more valuable than a closer.  Also Rivera blew. a couple of post seasons series for the Yankees.  By the same token I'm glad Jeter was not unanimous and I give credit to the writer who kept that from happening.
