Probably our ideal lineup (assuming we are resigned to playing Davis) against righties until Mountcastle comes up.

What time are we finishing last week's game?  Can't find the resume time listed anywhere.  Thought I remember 5:00 being mentioned.

Yeah, its 5pm.  (I had to look really hard to find it though.)

 

So, in a season of "firsts," has there ever in the history of baseball been a team sweep two 3-game series in back to back days?  Because that's a real possibility today.

The suspended game is scheduled to start at 5:05 PM, but the Baltimore weather forecast says that it will rain until about 7 PM.

Something that surely hasn't happened in forever--Strasburg will have two starts today. And hopefully two Ls.

You don't like the idea of a glove first third string catcher at DH?

 

Why would you ever DH Holaday so you could put Severino in the field?

I guess for the time being Mullins will play CF vs righties and Velazquez vs lefties.

Hyun-Jin Ryu )has been uncharacteristically wild so far this season, giving out 10 Free Passes (9 Walks and 1 Hit Batsman) in only 20 Innings Pitched.

In his previous 2 seasons combined, Ryu's walk rate over 265 Innings Pitched was 1.325, including a league-leading 1.183 for the Dodgers last season.

That said, he is certainly capable of pitching 8 innings without walking any batters.

    • I had a bad feeling about the Parra trade the moment it was made. Trading for a player having a career year and changing leagues is a good way to get that player to return back to his career norms.
    • Santander played well, and his defense earned a GG finalist spot, though Gallo clearly beat him. Defense is important. As he learns the intimate details of RF at OPACY, his D can be expected to improve. I don’t think offense improves linearly: as he addresses his flaws-or doesn’t- he will either dramatically improve, or stay about the same. His BABIP was .248, which is below league average(?) and his K rate was only 15.6%. His walk rate is pretty low, which indicates he has a good eye and makes contact, so even if nothing changes, I’d expect better production when the hits stop finding so many gloves. He was worth.9 WAR in 60 games. I’d expect 2 or above if he plays 150 games. Hays’ bat is a bit more suspect, but it’s logical for him to come into his own as he faces more MLB-level pitching. But his defense is wonderful, and even if he isn’t hitting as well as he should, he’s likely better on offense than Mullins( unless Mullins himself has come into his own, and his 2020 is his new normal.) Either way, I’m not worried about OF production, so long as Mc and Mancini aren’t out there.
    • I also think .900 OPS is very optimistic for Santander, when you consider that his .890 last year was built on a .315 ISO.    That’s Chris Davis in his best seasons-type power.   There were only six major league qualifiers last year with a .315+ ISO, and five in 2019.   I think Santander has nice power but not at that level.   Anything over .200-.225 would be gravy.    
    • Hays needs to be able to stay healthy for a season or he might just end up being the Nolan Reimold of the 2020's Orioles. 
    • The Rule V thing is a wellspring for me of the bigger Santander enthusiasm. We'll see what kind of dance teams dance about stuff like...Gosh, Adley and Yusniel missed development so they can't break in for a long while yet, but Rule V is a similarly big obstacle (maybe worse if you buy in to the trope too early exposure to stuff in The Show can "ruin" a guy), so he's perhaps developmentally younger, and there's a fair bit of delta on the medium-term projection if Santander's 2020 performance can count as "baseball 24" even though he was 25.
    • Fair enough..Wildcard tends to have these completely over the top takes based off of SSS that just don’t make sense.     His use of the word should Deserves to be called out imo.  
    • My point has nothing to do with the relative merits of your prognostication, or of Wildcards. It has to do with you finding it necessary to be kinda nasty in criticizing Wildcard's speculation, and then immediately speculating on the same subject. I don't care whether you disagree with him. It just seemed a few notches over the top to me.
