See Hess might have potential as a reliever. (probably not)

Well we know he can't start, doesn't hurt to try him as a reliever.  But I agree, probably not.

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.

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.

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'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.

    • Houston has also been able to acquire arms late in the draft or cheaply in the international market and develop them into trade assets. I'm prepping for Rule 5 draft stuff and it's unbelievable how many good arms they have in the minors that came out of nowhere (10+ round pick or older international signees). They all throw hard and miss bats. 
    • Hopefully the Nats finish this thing off today.  They have gone I think 81-40 since starting 19-31.  That is remarkable.  The Cardinals do what they always do in October....overachieve.  Thankfully, they are about to get stuffed by the much better team.  This will be a really good WS matchup regardless of who comes out of the AL. 
    • Eh, I don't really buy that in this case.  Liberatore is a lefty, has better mechanics, and more projection remaining, so I think there is a fair case for Liberatore then and now. It's really close though, Rodriguez is the better pitch at the moment, but no one really cares who is the better pitcher at 19 in low A ball. 
    • The old Liberatore vs Rodriguez debate. I think most “experts” will always try and rank Liberatore slightly higher than Rodriguez because they all criticized the O’s for “reaching” for Rodriguez. 
    • Someone pointed out before that Vaughn got pitched around his last year in NCAA. Let’s see what happens to Torkelson when/if he gets that treatment.  I don’t see how we could draft Torkelson.  Even if we trade Mancini, Mountcastle is still likely a 1B.  When team building I don’t think you pencil in your future 1B and DH spots first.   I’d like to see us draft a bat, but if the best SP is available then I’m open to that. I think that bats are safer picks and would help the system more.  Hopefully Detroit makes a mistake at 1:1 and we get the player Elias thinks is #1 overall. Lots of baseball to play till the draft. 
    • HOU got burned with taking Pitchers Appel and Aiken high. HOU has been grow the bats and buy the arms since then. Using their prospect bats to acquire proven SP.  I do think bats are safer picks over pitchers. Last draft we took lots of bats compared to pitchers. It could’ve been lots of factors at play, but I think it was a strategic decision.  Not having the number one pick in next years’ draft means we’ll likely be deciding on the 2nd best SP, Torkelson, or other NCAA and HS bats.    
    • I hope Buck gets the Phillies job.
