Piss 'Em Off, and Go For 4 (vs. MARLINS, 8/04)

Recommended Posts

Until I read the OP, I had no idea we're playing 4 against the Marlins.  This could be either a lot of fun or a lot of bad baseball or both A and B.  What a crazy season.

I was actually referring to the Orioles' current 3-game winning streak ........ which could hit 4 if they win the opening game of the upcoming series.

Still, go for 4 against the Marlins too! Make it 7 in a row. Marlins should... suck. Can't be more than a patchwork lineup.

One thing at a time, Scott ...... you can't win 7 in a row until you win 5 or 6 in a row. And you can't win 5 in a row until you win 4 in a row. Let's win tomorrow, and get the 4th.

Looks like the storm has passed and we should be all clear for beisbol by this evening

I was checking the future radar earlier and it looked like 90% of the storm would be out to sea by now (3 pm) heading for the North Atlantic. Checked the hourly for Balmer. Tonight should be fine, everpresent chance of afternoon thunderstorms tomorow.

So it looks like Harrison is the only newly recalled or selected guy in the starting lineup.   Seems like their main lineup survived somewhat unscathed.

Lewis Brinson is also making his 2020 season debut. 

Brinson played MLB in parts of 3 seasons in 2017, 2018, and 2019 ........ Harrison is making his career MLB debut.

Logan Forsythe signed 6 days ago. He was released by the Phillies before their Summer Camp exhibition games.

    • So, to be clear, you think every player in the system should be brought up to the major league team?  As others have said, it is easy now, in hindsight, to say that Elias should have seen that Yaz was going to be a star in the three weeks of spring training he had to look at him, after an uninspiring minor league career under the previous regime, but that just seems to be an unreasonable assessment of Elias, IMO.
    • You can’t blame Elias for not seeing it coming though. 
    • I don’t think he should have had much of a chance. I wish we were smart enough to see it coming. That’s whT I’m disappointed in and what I don’t want to happen in the future.
    • Yaz played the instrument for years and wasn’t good.  He deserved nothing and didn’t earn anything.
    • Yeah, I don't consider returning a Rule 5 guy to be a fail.  In fact, it is the most likely result, league-wide.  I really consider taking Rule 5 shots at guys to be a matter of nothing ventured, nothing gained.  Also, IMO, picking up stop gap players and have them turn out to be exactly that isn't really a fail, either.  Sure, I'd like to see us strike gold on one of these guys, but I can't say that I expect it to happen.  I'm more interested in seeing how guys we acquire like Vavra and Smith turn out.
    • So? The guys we brought up for a chance, every guy brought up for a chance, as opposed to bringing up “because he is ready,” is by definition being given an opportunity that he doesn’t necessarily deserve. We risk nothing by bringing him up. I’m a musician, and I can’t judge a piece without paying it once. Maybe not all the way through, but gotta sit down and play it. Now, it might be by a terrible or unknown composer, and some would say,”it’s by Danzi, it sucks.” Well, so? Maybe it does suck. Danzi was a mediocre composer. But maybe it doesn’t suck. Maybe it’s worthwhile, as recital filler, or as a rare gem from a mediocrity. But if I play it, I’ll know. As another surprisingly similar example, the widow of a local cellist gave me some of her late husband’s music, including an untouched piece he bought 50+ years ago. So rare there’s only one lonely YouTube audio, and the music is long out of print and the publisher is itself long out of business. I played it and said, “this is an incredible piece.” And it is. So this piece is Yaz. The previous owner never bothered to play it, and I did, and I get the benefit. If he’d played lit, maybe he’d have hated it, maybe not. But he never gave it a chance.
    • Well let’s remember that a lot of parts of that system that are good were here before Elias got here.
