Means has arm fatigue (Milone starts opening day)

Roch says Means has a "dead arm." I thought that was the term used during baseball's first 100 years when guys couldn't pitch, even after a rubdown from the trainer or a whirlpool treatment, but the exact problem was unknown because nobody could diagnose the difference between a little stiffness and a career-ending injury.

But no reason to worry about Means being unavailable, with the starting pitching depth this team has. :eek:

Once these bats grow they'll have to buy some arms.

Actually it may be in their best interest to go with "openers" instead of starters from now on, like the Rays once did.

You still have to pitch 9 innings.  Well the Orioles only have to pitch 8 on the road but you know what I mean.

At least for the first two weeks of the season we will have a 10 or 11 man bullpen, so I don't think that will be too big a problem,.

Was worried about this for all pitchers. 

Shut down for 3.5 months and then start back up. I know these guys kept working out and throwing but still.

There aren’t any rules about the number of pitchers on the active roster during this modified season, right.  Why not carry 17-18 pitchers to start?

That should be enough to get the O's through nine innings.

No, there aren't.   Before Covid, there were going to be.   But those rules were scratched due to Covid-19.

But Hyde has said in interviews that he is deciding between a 15 and 16 man staff.

That really should be sufficient, anyway.   Especially if you have a few relievers who can go multiple innings.

The good news after Means their isn’t much of a drop off with the rest.  Some teams have big gap in depth lucky fir we have depth just not good depth.

So is the rule you have to pitch to 3 batters scrapped as well? With a 16 man staff these games could be pretty much unwatchable.

No, that rule is still in play.

Here's a link to a post from just before summer camp opened with a summary of the rules in effect for this season:

    • Haven't we all figured out by now that "non-sports medical reason" is often a code for Covid which they aren't allowed to disclose without the player's permission? And if it's not Covid, it's mono or something like that.  Or, God forbid, it's symptoms that wind up being something really bad, as happened when Trey missed a week+ of spring training because he wasn't feeling well. Occam's razor, take the simplest explanation: Explanation 1:  Orioles say he isn't attending for a medical reason.  They are telling the truth.  Then while he isn't attending, he uses that time to finish is degree.    Explanation 2:  Orioles lie and say he isn't attending for a medical reason.   Then it comes out that he finished his degree.   That is actually the reason he didn't attend, and the Orioles are keeping that a secret by lying for some reason. Hmmm.... one explanation seems clearcut and straightforward and something that might happen in the real world.   The other seems to come out of tinfoil hat territory, with inexplicable lying and conpiracty by Them to keep us from knowing at The Truth.
    • Kids who watched the Simpsons when it was at its peak of popularity have kids of their own now. When I went to my 25th HS reunion, which was age 43, I was amazed at how the women still mostly looked young and almost exactly the same as they did in high school, with just a few exceptions.  The men, myself included, had all put on weight and looked a lot different.   I was much more likely to need a name tag to let me know who a guy was than a girl. Not much change at all by the 30th (48 years old). At the 35th (53) the women started really showing their age and suddenly I needed name tags for the women too.  And for the first time, in both sexes, I saw people who "looked like grandparents" to me.   Not the majority, but certainly a decent number.  (And of course some of them actually ARE grandparents).
    • He was a batting practice legend. Until Aderlin Rodriguez arrived...
    • Elias loves his former draft picks.
    • I am surprised that Eshelman didn't get cut with this group.
