Trying for a Mini-Sweep (vs. NATIONALS, 8/28)

I’m curious as to why Richie Martin isn’t playing more? Are they trying to showcase Villar at SS For off-season trade value purposes? Jace Peterson has been bad on defense and he doesn’t hit, so I’m curious why he’s at second. I’m actually curious why he remains on the team at all.

All in all, this lineup is not designed to maximize quality defense.

But I’m just here for the pitching. I want Wojo to do well.

Max Scherzer:

   lefty batters hit .243 and OPS .715 against him in his career

   righties hit .198 and OPS .577 against him in his career

That is the complete explanation for tonight's lineups.   We maxed out on LH hitters, 7 of the 8 position players.

And the one righty (Mancini) got our hit in the first inning.

Nats offense is just too good.  I knew last night was an aberration.  Very well rounded offense with patient hitters.

Who will do no better than 2-2 vs the Orioles in 2019.

Well ok.  I mean, that's a small sample size and it's nice that we'll split with them but they're certainly a better team.  I'm not sure what a split really means for us other than we had two good games against them.

And Aaron Brooks pitched out of his mind last night.

    • Bleier trade continues to bite the O's last night.  Fry  could not find the plate especially against right-handed batters. Needing to face three batter in not Fry's game.    It didn't affect the outcome because the O's didin't  hit.  However, Fry does not look up to being the 2nd lefties in the pen  which shows how much the O's miss Bleier.  Fry would be a candidate to be sent down but there is no lefty to replace him so he will probably stay in the majors.
    • SummerSlam ‘92 is on FS1.  Quarantine + Nostalgia = Mullet for backwardsk ?
    • I missed another game. My sleep schedule sleep patterns are SOOOOOOOO screwed up... I laid down for a quick nap before the game about 4:30. When I woke up at MIDNIGHT I had missed the entire thing. Turned on the TV to watch the 11:30 replay and THANK GOD the Gnats are back playing! They're the replay tonight... fml     So.... I'm not going to read the thread or the board. Or Roch. It's 1:30 am. I'm having my "morning" glass of coffee (yes BIG TALL GLASS) and I'm going to watch the 9 am MASN replay "live". So I have THAT going for me. 🙃 GO O'S!!!!

    • Now that does make sense: greater risk, greater reward. So do healthy pitchers make more than healthy batters? Serious question.
    • On his pro-rated salary, Cobb would earn @ $4.5MM the rest of this season. That would be nothing for a contending team to take on if they were sold on him putting them over the top. But I can't imagine being so desperate on August 4, 10 games into a 60 game season if I were a decision maker to take on the entirety of his contract.  If a team really wants to gamble a little bit of cash on Cobb to win this year's WS, they may be wrangled into taking half the burden on the 2021 salary, while the Orioles pay half of this season's $4.5MM remaining. This is starting to sound too good to be true!
    • The Cardinals never have a low pick, and yet they have a wonderful farm and consistent success
