Alright, I'm gonna say it.

Austin Hays is one of those guys that, if he were wearing a Boston jersey, you'd find him annoying.  Like Pedroia.  

So was Machado.

Well, I’ve been working all evening and I see that the bullpen has not glorified itself today.

I really wish they would do something about the inherited runners scored stat. It’s not fair to charge the runs to the guy who let the runners on instead of the guy who let the runners in. I really don’t think it’s fair for the runs that scored to be charged to Scott instead of to Tate, who actually let them score. 

It is also, BTW, entirely meaningless to talk about reliever ERA without also being very clear about how many inheritedruns that reliever allowed to score.

I think Machado knowingly played up the bad guy angle and he wasn't that way when he came up.  Hays is instantly annoying looking.

I'll be honest, I had that thought about Hays earlier this week. He looks like one of those grinder types that if you're an opposing fan you love to hate.

Good, I want the Orioles to have one of those type players when they start winning again. Brett Gardner is more annoying than Pedroia for me at least. 

Anyone on the Yankees is more annoying than Pedroia.

Agreed, but Red Sox fans are more annoying. And Paul O'Neill is probably my most hated ball player of all time. That guy never seemed happy winning the World Series every year and never saw a strike three he agreed with the umpire.

I don't understand why Davis and Trumbo are getting playing time either.  I've just stopped kinda caring about who gets playing time and who doesn't at this point in the season.  

With you on that. Why play those two?

You seem to be annoyed at the presence of Tate, too.

The thing is; he was ahead and throwing strikes with his off speed stuff. Why come in with a mediocre pitch?

So, yeah, annoyed.

    • You are at least one MLB short and they need a difference maker at MLB, not a project. I think MLB is a bigger need than DE
    • If the season is cancelled, do they carry over this years draft order to next year?  How long if a season is long enough to warrant changing the draft order?
    • Jim would probably tell you why he walked each one...strategically.   Maybe if they all swung at pitches in 1969 like Sammy Sosa did in 2007, Palmer would have struck out a lot more too.   The game was obviously different.  That in 2097 was Bedard’s only complete game and only shutout...Palmer had 6 shutouts and 11 complete games that year of 1969.   Just different ...and, in my view, of both performers, Jim’s was the better.  A no hitter is a unique pitching performance, I have been going to games for over 50 years and have not seen one.   2 hitters are a dime a dozen and I have seen a bunch, and strikeouts are interesting (though not democratic, as Crash Davis would say) but that doesn’t by itself give Bedard the alltime greatest Oriole pitching performance to me. 
    • So you are discounting SIX walks just because he didn't allow any hits?  Almost twice as many strikeouts?  Maybe if Bedard had the same caliber of defense behind him that Palmer he he wouldn't have allowed any hits?
    • I’m doing a mock on another forum. We were able to trade picks according to value chart and it turned out as follows: 1: Yetur Gross-Matos, Edge, Penn State 2: Solomon Kindley, G, Georgia 3: Cam Dantzler, CB, Miss St 3: Jordyn Brooks, ILB, Texas Tech 3: Shane Lemieux, G, Oregon 4: Lamical Perine, RB, Florida 4: Anfernee Jennings, Edge, Alabama   I think I feel mostly good about this. OL is definitely solidified and we get a young pass rusher with upside, potential fill the MLB spot, and keep the depth in our secondary. Lemieux was a redundant pick, and the one that I’d consider going back on, but I thought it was good value at the end of the third. Still need a WR, and to get some young blood at safety and D line.  
    • Since Ks are  the only measure this guy used to determine “best” pitching performance.  Not the context of the game as to important or not or whether it was against a quality opponent or not.   When Erik Bedard pitched a complete game against the Texas Rangers in 2007 with 15 strikeouts, Palmer's broadcasting partner Gary Thorne asked rhetorically, "Have you ever seen a better pitched game than that?" To which Palmer replied, "Well, I did throw a no-hitter."
