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)

    • 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.
