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.

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.

    • IMO, you get it straight from Fauci and Giroir. Birx not so much. Part of the problem is that she's not very skilled at explaining things to a lay audience. I'm getting close to the "no politics" line, if not over it, so I'll stop right there.
    • Just have to throw this out there,  because how often is a famous person connected to one's family.... My daughter has Kaline blood!  Ok, no directly Al Kaline's blood, but her grandmother (my mother in law) is Florence Kaline, cousin to Al Kaline.  She did have enough of a connection to the family that we did get to meet him once at OPACY when he was broadcasting for the Tigers.  He was very gracious and signed autograph's and took pictures with us.  My mother in law's family is large so it was like 20+ of us there, but still was really a unique moment that I will never forget.  And I have a picture of my daughter (she was too young to remember) with him.  We were sorry to hear of his passing. 
    • We talked about this in another thread recently.  He was hurt in '72, but in '71 he hit 18 homers with Memorial Stadium being a bit of a pitcher's park. Fulton County had a HR park effect on par with Colorado.  So from '71 to ''73 he went from 10 road homers to 17.  Which isn't that crazy, I guess.
    • Yesterday was the first time I got annoyed during the sim. Watching the team flail away and strikeout so much was getting frustrating.
    • Goslin was a 1920s and 30s version of, I don't know... Andre Dawson or Dwight Evans or Dave Winfield.  Somewhere in there.  Had a huge home/road HR split (92/156) because Griffith Stadium was just impossible to hit homers in.  It's was like 402 to left and over 350 to RF with a huge concrete wall. Averill's career was like Kirby Puckett, in the 30s.  Center fielder, relatively short career, marginal HOFer on career value.  Although he played three full, peak years in the PCL back when they were independent that he should probably get some extra credit for.  Which mostly accounts for him not making his MLB debut until 27.  From age 27+ Averill was worth more than Mantle, Gwynn, Kaline, Stargell, McCovey, about on par with Biggio, Thome,  Manny Ramirez.
    • So what in the world happened to Davey Johnson in 1973? In his first year with the Braves in his age 30 season he hit 43 HRs and yet never topped 18 in any other season.  Looking at the park effects it seems like Atlanta Stadium was a bandbox that year and three members of that team topped 40 HRs, but that still seems just absolutely wild to me.
