The Oriole defense has turned 3 Double Plays in the first 6 Innings so far tonight for Alex Cobb.

Don't sell short Cobb's contribution.  If he wasn't putting runners on the defense couldn't make double plays.

And the very next inning, Urias turned an easy force play into a 1st-and-3rd with nobody out situation. 

Not only did he not get the force out at 2nd base, but he then threw the ball in the dist to the first baseman to allow the lead runner to take an additional base.

Kind of a harsh critique for a 1.14 WHIP

But the Red Sox still failed to score ...... Cobb struck a batter out, and then the defense turned their 4th double play of the night to end the inning.

Not including the runner who was caught stealing, 90% of the Outs that Alex Cobb recorded (18 out of 20) came via the Groundout and the Strikeout. ) O.o

Severino made a beautiful throw to 3B to catch Vázquez trying to steal 3B to end a second inning threat by the Red Sox.   That’s the second time this week he’s made a great throw to 3B, having picked a runner off 3B in a previous game.

Some final defensive numbers:

Rtot: +15 (6th in MLB)

Rdrs: -3 (19th in MLB) 

UZR: -5.4 (21st in MLB)

Fangraphs defense: -4.4 (21st in MLB) 

Fielding %: .980 (27th in MLB)

Overall, a bit better than last year but below average unless you want to believe Rtot.

Overall, the Oriole defense was very frustrating for me to watch this season.

I was very happy with the team's performance on the field and their general direction overall, but the defense made me squirm a little too much.

    • I would put not trading Britton, Manny and Brach after 2016 above all of these though.
    • As moronic as the Britton decision was, that team wasn’t all that great, so they don’t go far anyway. Manny could have made a huge difference.  Who knows?  McLouth homer could change the series but they still would have likely lost in the playoffs and probably that series.  
    • I take yellow, because that would have had positive ramifications for several years, whereas blue, which is second place, maybe gets us past KC (maybe, as w were swept) and maybe gives us a chance against the Giants in the WS.  Yellow for me.
    • Orioles did offer Cruz a contract, IIRC.  I believe they offered him a 3-year deal, which seemed reasonable considering his age.  It was a bit of a surprise that he got a 4-year deal from Seattle.  There really wasn't much of an outcry over the Orioles not going 4 years.  It seemed like a prudent decision at the time.
    • I understand.  I just think he was decent here in 1990 and decent in Houston in 1991, I'm not sure why he wasn't more highly regarded by both teams.  I agree he wasn't an obvious HoFer until his late 20s.   I think Finley was great.  An OF of Brady, Devo and Finley in the 90s would have been borderline elite defensively.  But he, too, really didn't kick into gear until his late 20s and early 30s.  And while I don't think he was ever named in the Mitchell report, it wouldn't have surprised me if he was using. Glenn Davis was very good, probably tied with Will Clark and Jack Clark as the preeminent slugging first baseman in the NL in the late 80s.   
    • I don't think Schilling is a deranged lunatic.  He has some unpopular opinions that he does a poor job of expressing.  IMO, a deranged lunatic is someone who's dangerous to himself and others in society, I don't see Schilling being that guy. That said, I'd gladly have whatever "stain" Schilling has over Davis.  I'd take 26 Ty Cobbs (cue @DrungoHazewood "He wasn't that bad of a guy!  The Al Stump book was lies!") on this team if it meant we would win.
