Yankees Bomb Orioles 7-2 (sim)

Recommended Posts

Wow, our crappy rotation is snakebit. Pirates got another journeyman we can trade for?

Also, FYI, your writeup didn't say why LeBlanc left the game

"Wade LeBlanc who got leadoff hitter Brett Gardner out then had to leave the game after holding his wrist ."

The Orioles 10 sim games at a time:

Davis 1-for-15.  Can't be fooled by spring training!  Can we release him now?

Hunter Harvey 2.000 OPS and 0.21 WHIP - team MVP?

Has the league figured out John Means?  3 HR and BABIP of only .286 say he's earned his 9.00 ERA.

Is Renato more or less than Ty Wigginton on the guys you would never believe are 1-time All-Stars scale?

In my sim...ugh, just ugh.

Orioles tagged Cole for 7 runs IN THE FIRST INNING, Nunez hit a homer, Santander hit a homer,  Ruiz hit a homer.  Cole can't make it out of the first!!!  The Yankees chipped away a little bit but I extended the lead to 10-3.  And then Cobb just $#!*@ the bed all over the place, gave almost all of it back.  Urshela hit a 3 run homer to make it 10-6 in the 5th.  And I just wanted Cobb to get through 5, I felt like that wasn't too much to ask.  Then Stanton hits a 3 run homer and it's 10-9.

Bottom of the 6th, Voit tied it with a double.  And into extra innings it went...into the 11th.  12th....13th.  I'm wearing out their bullpen, working counts, I survived Ottavino, Britton, Chapman.  I'm coming up with key double plays, I'm playing shifts and they're working.  Every pitching move I make works.  I get two great innings from Fry, I get another two innings from Kopech (yes, I traded for him).

14th inning.  Still knotted at 10.  Ruiz starts it with a single.  And then PAT @#*%ING VALAIKA GOES DEEP.  12-10!  I'm gonna win!

So I bring in Hunter Harvey because Kopech is gassed and I have Bleier warming just in case.  Harvey promptly walks Gardner.  And then he walks Voit.  And then Harvey gets injured because that's what Harvey does.  

In comes Bleier who strikes out Torres.  Then Stanton singles softly up the middle to load the bases for...Gary Sanchez.

And then Sanchez tattoos it 434 feet.  Game winning, walk off Grand Slam.

Yeah, it was.  But as soon as the first two Yankees got on in the 14th, it's exactly like real life.  You don't know how it's gonna happen, you just know it's gonna happen.

That's what made 5/6/2012 so magical. You knew the Orioles were going to blow it...and then they didn't. That was when I realized we might have something special that year

Also in my '86 Mets season, I traded for Ozzie Smith as I didn't like Rafael Santana at SS.  I traded George Foster and my hotshot minor leaguer, Gregg Jeffries.  When STL asked for Jeffries in the deal I laughed and gladly threw him in there.  Jeffries never amounted to much in real life.  

Then I remembered this wasn't real life.

So far the funniest thing in doing this simulation was the guy on our Facbeook Group site who was mad at me because the Yankees kept beating the Orioles and told me I should be saying it the other way around.

Then there was another guy who told me the simulation was unrealistic and that's why they play the game! :D

    • MLB doesn't think so.  The Orioles are awarded a competitive balance pick every year.
    • Its will be a  lot easier for the O's to add a quality FA bat than a quality FA pitcher IMO Nationals market is much bigger than the O's market.  On a normal business day you can't even get to Camden Yards from Northern Virginia for a 7 pm game unless you are willing to spend 2 plus hours in bumper to bumper traffic.  Believe me, I have tried. Its a major deterrent.  And its exhausting.
    • Baltimore is mid market team, as the Nationals are. If the Orioles had a strong team, and was that one piece away, then I see them being bale to add 6/155, hell, they added Davis, didnt they. While it was money foolishly spent, it was spent. I see Elias wanting to build this team for the long haul, and once they get a solid core going, then spend the money for quality FAs to complete the roster. IMO  
    • While I understand the history of developing pitching both in Baltimore and elsewhere,  I think its important for the O's to draft and develop pitching more than most teams for several reasons. 1) Baltimore is not the 3th largest market in the country like Chicago or the 4th largest like Houston.  The O's fan base is limited by Washington to the south and Philadelphia to the north.   That limits the amount of revenue they will have for veteran pitching.    It seens unlike that they will spend 6/155m or a Lester type, Verlander or Scherzer.  2) Not only is there a limit to the funds the O's will have to spend, but also Camden Yard is a place most free agent pitchers will avoid if possible.   Couple the limited funds with the Park and there is double the reasons for quality FA pitching to go elsewhere; 3) Elias know all this.  That is why he has beefed up his player development staff. Boosted his Analytics Department and paid to bring Holt in to lead the development of the pitchers in  the minors and the majors.  There is a lot more pitching development staff than in the past.  Elias is gear up to develop  players and pitchers have lead that development in the last year. Might the O's add some veteran pitching when they are ready to contend? Sure.   But that its probably  not basis for Elias contention plan.  Developing pitchers is a key part of the plan.  Adding quality pitching prospects is a big part of that plan.   After not adding a pitcher until the 8th round in last years draft and with this years draft being more pitching rich,  I think we will see Elias add pitchers in this draft whether it is the #2, #30, #39 picks after that.
    • “One of the most talented bats in this draft, the always hitting Nick Gonzales is a top prospect in 2020. After going on one of the craziest runs in college baseball of the past three years, Gonzales has shown the bat isn’t just boosted by Amateur Coors (Presley Askew Field) as shown in an outstanding summer on the Cape. Gonzales has excellent bat control and finds the barrel easy with raw power that shines. Although some questions remain for his legitimacy to be more than just a line drive hitter at the professional level. Gonzales has a very good sense of the strike zone, with a 45/30 BB/K last year. Although he has improved in that area and New Mexico State played him in short stop this year, Gonzales still gives up some defensive errors here and there. The arm isn’t quite strong enough to play elsewhere than second base but the bat more than makes up for it. Some questions still show up about Gonzales’ physical ceiling as he is pretty well built already at 5’10” 190, adding on to the question of if Gonzales is better suited as a gap-to-gap hitter at the next level. Regardless, Gonzales is a very talented player and can become a very useful player at the professional level.””
