I'm still salty about the Hess game. Orioles were playing for history in a season full of nothing. Still don't understand what it was going to hurt. We won't remember how many games we loss 40-2, but in a season full of ups and downs, we would have remembered that surgical no-hitter robbed from us on 4/1.

The problem with bad baseball players isn’t that they can’t ever play well, is that they can’t play well reliably, consistently, often.

Philip Humber

I have nothing against David Hess, But any good outing he has Must be considered an outlier.

In the dry humor department, you have 2 very strong allies in Malike and myself.

Malike's driest act was to stop posting.

Hess 4/1: 6.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R

Straily 4/15: 5.0 IP, 2 H, 1 R

Wojo 7/21: 7.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R

Brooks 8/27: 6.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R

Blach 9/6: 5.0 IP, 2 H, 2 R

It’s a mystery.    

The highest game score in modern Orioles history is 111 by Jerry Walker, in the second game of a doubleheader 60 years ago today.  That's the only Oriole start since 1954  with a game score over 100.

He threw a 16-inning shutout over the White Sox.  Walker was 37-44 in his career with a 90 ERA+.  According to an online pitch count estimator, Walker threw about 154 pitches.

Dylan Bundy's 12-strikeout one-hitter on August 29th, 2017 is the 3rd-highest game score of a nine-inning game in O's history.

The best 9-inning start in O's history was Erik Bedard's 15K 2-hit shutout on 7/7/07.

That was a masterful performance against the Rangers.  Amazing game!

That was the antithesis of the 30-3 loss to the very same team, a month-and-a-half later.

I know there are a couple of ways of doing game score, but per BB-ref, Moose’s 8/1/00 start (9 IP, 1 H, 15 K’s) got at 98 (tied with Bedard) and his 5/31/97 start (9 IP, 1 H, 10 K’s) got a 95 (tied with Bundy).

What was Palmer’s high game score and when?

Palmer three times exceeded 90, each time in extra innings.   His highest was a 93, in a 12 inning 4 hit shutout in 1974.   In regulation 9 innings, he twice reached 90, in 1975 (2-hit shutout, 8 K’s) and 1982 (1-hit shutout, 7 K’s).    He never reached really astronomical scores because he never had a ton of strikeouts.

Man I was so pissed when Hyde pulled Hess midway through the seventh while he had a now hitter going in the 4/1 game...

I mean, I get it, but still. As a fan, that was tough.

Let’s not forget, he had 8 outs to go and already had thrown 82 pitches to get 19 outs.    On pace for 117 pitches, in game 4 of the season pitching on 3 days rest after a 2 inning relief stint on opening day.

    • I have to be honest and admit that I hated the Jackson pick. I didnt think Jackson was or could be a good passer. I am really impressed with his growth as a player. I also thought he was predisposed to running 1st. I am impressed with where we are as a team and much of that is because of the elite athletic ability of Lamar. I still think he's exposed to a cheap shot by a defensive player too often and think a leg injury will end his career. but I am enjoying where we are and the way the team is playing!
    • Thought it would be interesting to look at what people are thinking now.
    • Our defense was key in this victory! Great game by the team and Mr Jackson and his offense. Our defense will be a top 5 before the season is over
    • I think the answer to all these game polls going forward have the same answer.
    • Does anyone else think this 2019 team is a better team than either of our Super Bowl winning teams?      
    • In the 1920s the International League Orioles were probably among the top 10 professional teams in the world.  Jack Dunn refused to sign affiliation agreements.  He had all stars and Hall of Fame caliber players in their prime.  But eventually he was pressured by the rest of the league into caving.  The PCL made a little run in the 1950s at going independent and hinting a going major, but expansion and the Dodgers and Giants put an end to that.  Besides the relatively low-level indy leagues today there haven't been real minor league pennant races in my lifetime.
    • It's premature to say that the MLB draft is moving to August.  MLB wants to move it after the College World Series.  Some have speculated that August makes sense as a date in August would eliminate the need for short-season A teams.   Logically, it makes no sense to mandate which minor league teams will be axed although "leaking" a list may encourage towns on the fence to up their facilities.  How up to date are the facilities in Frederick? It location is great.  Organizations such as the Orioles/Astros that are big on machine learning, regression models, and neural networks are more likely to be on board with this plan while organizations such as the Cubs/Yankees that have the resources to have a more balanced approach may have  misgivings. During the past season the Cubs had 300 players under control.  This new plan would lessen that number by at least 100.  Youngsters that are unable to make the jump from the DSL or HS to full-season ball may stay at their respective complexes and play unofficial games against other organizations throughout the summer as opposed to until the draft as in past years.  One advantage is that it will be easier to evaluate prospects with fewer non-prospects in the mix, although you could argue that 20-year old prospects benefit from playing with 25-year old non-prospects who know the little things but have limited tools. The great statistics put up by top prospects during their first ML seasons in recent years suggests that top prospects may be spending too much time in the minors.  More rapid promotion for a select few is likely with a thinner pool of players.  It is also possible that AAA will be more like AA is today, i.e., the place for top prospects.   Independent leagues comprised of released players could fill the role that AAA has today - although this will depend on the details of the next ML agreement.  I've also heard that some teams would prefer a shorter season so that their prospects could spend more time in their respective pitching/hitting labs.
