Probably holding him in reserve for a high leverage situation.

They don't want him to be injured and miss more time.

(SEPTEMBER 9th)

 

Last night, the Mets' announcers pointed out that the Orioles scored 4 or more runs for the 9th consecutive game for the first time since 2007.

I didn't look them all up, but I did look up the 2007 Orioles and the 2014 Orioles (the most successful Orioles team overall since 1997.)

Sure enough, not only did the 2007 team have those 9 consecutive game of 4 runs or more, but the 2014 team did not ........ not necessarily empirical proof that the other 11 Orioles teams between 2008 and 2019 did not accomplish the feat, but it is a sign that the Mets' announcers likely knew what they were talking about.

Also of modest interest is the fact that the 2007 Orioles (69-93) scored 756 runs for the entire season, while the 2014 Orioles (96-66) scored only 705 ...... but the 2007 Orioles were only 9th out of 14 American League teams overall, while the 2014 Orioles were 6th out of 15.

This streak was extended to 10 games last night, which is the longest such streak by an Orioles team since 2006.

I was talking about yesterday, but was glad to see Hyde sat him.  Although, I was jonesing to see this game tonight that I also disappointed about the cancellation that I woulda even enjoyed it if CD did play!     
 

And I don’t mean to kick him while he is down, I was a huge CD fan.   Just....it’s time to move on.

Real problem with the seven-inning rule: the home team gets to determine the length of games. By postponing a game when there are very few off-days left, a team can shorten two games, increasing the chance that its weak middle-inning bullpen won't be exposed..

Blake Snell has a Strikeouts-Per-9-Innings ratio of 11.538 for the season.

In his only outing in 2020 season against the Orioles on July 31st, he ceded 3 Runs in only 3-PLUS Innings Pitched.

For his entire career against the Orioles he has a 5.10 ERA, but a very solid 1.133 WHIP ...... his Walks and Strikeouts are very good (39 Strikeouts and only 5 Walks in 30 Innings Pitched), but he has tended to give up the long ball at a rather high rate against the Birds (7 Home Runs in only 30 Innings Pitched.)

    • Context. He hit very well in spells in Bowie, but tended to get hurt and start slowly when he came back. So,  his cumulative stats MAY not be an indicator of his true talent. Additionally, the coaches/management see him and have the modern equipment to better evaluate that question (e.g., his true talent, expected future performance) than "old" stats like batting average in the context of injuries might indicate. With that said, I'm not convinced that his true talent actually matches his original hype when signed by the Dodgers or traded to the O's. Tony's write-ups raise serious questions in that regard, so I don't think you're wrong to want to see some performance before promoting him. But I suspect the people you're arguing with in this thread actually agree about that point.
    • Bananas are yellow right?       https://www.crayola.com/explore-colors/banana-mania.aspx  
    • So, by your post above, you agree that the Iglesias trade does fit into what we'd expect Elias to be doing ("building inventory"), correct? As for free agents, I can imagine him wanting to spend BIG in a place where he might not think we have answers during a competitive period. So at SS or 2B, for example, I'd expect he might hold off on a big name guy because he might think we have our own big name guys 2-3 years away, so the paying part wouldn't make sense re: a competitive team. Same for 3B, outfield, catcher and even pitcher. I honestly think that 90% of what he's doing is consistent with what I would expect him to do given a complete rebuild. The one part I agree with is the opportunity to take on bigger contracts in exchange for more prospects. I too wish we'd go that route. I think the next level example of that is signing a guy like Cobb (e.g., more expensive than Iglesias) and hoping for performance so you can trade him. I think the cost/risk equation there gets a little out of hand though. 
    • OH ... 15.5 ... Thanks for helping make my point 🍺
    • I live in a world where you prove you deserve a promotion. Producing at your current role is the indicator. Most players produce less at the majors than they did in the minors....Notice I said most! Analytics helps and I'm happy we have them. But they stats are the stats and why think a guy is ready to do better at the majors than he's done at AA? .262 is pretty mediocre. What is it about Bowie that would lead you to believe that he'd do better at the majors. Scenario ..... its 2021 in July and Diaz is hitting .260/.315/750 at AA. Why do you think he'd be better against MLB pitching? Analystics? I'm pretty sure they are using the same data in the minors now right?
    • I agree with you and Frobby, circumstances rather than any actual numbers threshold. And I think the bolded is the best and simplest way to phrase it. Next man up.
    • But it was my thought!  Lol. Going forward, I will think it and Jerios will post it.
