Also a diving catch by Santander, and a stellar play by Iggy in the 9th to atone for an 8th inning error.

(vs. YANKEES, 7/29)

 

The Orioles were called for TWO catcher's interference calls in the 1st inning.

As Yossarian pointed out in the game thread, you could go 2 years without seeing one of those called ........ and we got 2 of them in a single inning.

I wasn't watching, but I'm sure that they were ........ it occurs when the batter swings the bat, and the bat catches a piece of the catcher's mitt.

It's a rare call, but it is almost never disputed when it happens.

Jesus ........ I've never seen it done THAT egregiously. 

What the hell was Severino thinking when he was positioning himself behind the plate ???

He was just trying to social distance from the umpire.

LOL!    It didn’t hurt that Judge and Stanton were the batters.   Very long reach on both guys.

Makes you wonder if he's done it before and gotten away with it. Or maybe this is something the coaches are trying to teach and he hasn't refined his technique?

Holaday Is a good catcher on defense, but unfortunately you can’t really call him up. Sisco still has to get his opportunity, although I think he will never be an acceptable catcher and has shown it. But he might be able to hit well enough to find a place. But he can’t be starting catcher, and I don’t think you can give up on Severino either. It is a pickle.

Well, isn’t judge like 69 or so? He’s a big lad, and maybe Severino just didn’t anticipate how much of a reach he had.

(vs. D-RAYS, 7/31)

 

Sometimes, your team gets some help from the opposition's defense ........ such was the case last night in the bottom of the 7th inning against the Rays, when their 1st Baseman muffed what should have been an easy force-out at home plate to give the Orioles a much-needed insurance run in what was a one-run game at the time.

(vs. D-RAYS, 8/01)

 

An errant throw by pitcher Shawn Armstrong on a force play at 2nd base wound up costing the team ........ the Rays essentially got an extra out, they scored a couple of extra runs, and the game is subsequently tied in the 8th inning.

    • o   You better take a diamond ring ...... you better pawn it, babe.   o
    • The write up makes me think that he is not a starter that Hyde would want to rely on every 5th day.  Maybe more of a swingman.  So that makes it more likely the O's sign a Milone type to begin the season or maybe Milone himself if they can get him for a million for one year.
    • o   That's somewhat of a rare song in which Lennon and Harrison switched on and off for the lead and rhythm. Lennon essentially plays lead for the majority of the song, while Harrison strums the chords. Then for the lead guitar solo it's Harrison playing lead, while Lennon briefly strums the chords. Then at the end of the solo, Lennon goes back to (essentially) playing lead while Harrison strums the chords.   Somewhat similarly, in the song "I'm Happy Just to Dance with You" it's Lennon playing the dominant portion of the guitar (strumming/picking extremely fast) while Harrison strums the chords ...... the difference being that unlike the case with "All My Loving", there is no guitar solo in "I'm Happy Just to Dance with You."   o
    • Brian Kenny on with Russo just now had the observation Cash let his starter go past 18 Batters Faced 5 of the first 6 games.   Obviously a 1-0 score and all the big relievers "rested" in an elimination game different circumstances last night. Mad Dog was ready for blood, but Kenny sort of headed him off at the pass surprising by giving his agreement the Snell pull was incorrect. Given the scuffles of the 4-week postseason, I'm not sure sticking with Anderson as the A reliever did him any favors.  His stat producing robot mode was clearly offline (today the inevitable reports acknowledging fatigue a factor).  Fairbanks or Castillo probably would have been better picks last night for in-inning fireman. Kenny in the spot also had the Mad Dog (pining for Snell to have the Smoltz experience) counter the Dodgers did October with a 2-man rotation, and bullpenning to take the WS clincher and survive two NLCS elimination games.  Obviously in the 162, Urias and May take their turns and do fine, but the October Corbin blueprint got drawn a bit more heavily this year. Snell is kind of an interesting gray area of is he a good enough starter to transcend the 18-batter leash as is correctly done with Cole, etc.  He has the Cy, but also like a 3.50-ish expected ERA across the couple of years including the Cy.   I think the Rays see him more JA Happ than Clayton Kershaw.
    • Really can't wait to see when some of the international guys are starting to make noise.  It's good that we've got a decently regarded system without much presence from international prospects but the system will have a real shot in the arm once a few of these guys start to produce.
    • He's really an unknown because of the bat improvements he showed early on the year are for real, he's a steal as a 3rd round pick.
    • Not sure why but I have a good feeling about him.  Maybe it's the plate discipline.
