Unless your a great framer!  That's so valuable you don't have to be able to do anything else.  😉

Nope, I don't fall for defensive WAR. Not yet.

One of the worst things about an electronic strike zone is that it would render completely useless the skill of framing. You can’t fool a computer, it’s either a ball or a strike and that is that.

I don't love him out of the bullpen. 

Isn’t that kind of a dumb idea? If he’s a starter, and he’s on a starter schedule, why call him up to stick him in the bullpen for two weeks?

I just heard about this in this comment,So I missed any explanation, but it doesn’t seem like a reasonable move. If you want a bullpen guy, why not bring up a bullpen guy, or dump Hess And bring up two bullpen guys?

I do not know who those two bullpen guys would necessarily be, but they would be bullpen guys. Not starters.

That's a feature.

I’m all for letting Sisco get at bats. Even if the O’s can’t decide on his long term future with a 60 game season, I want to see players who might have a future get playing time. 

Especially when they're white hot hitting like Sisco is now. Strike while the iron is hot.

I thought Hyde said to make sure to give them a day off when they are hot?

I didn't hear that. Hope not. I'm still thinking like Buck, ride the hot players, hitters and pitchers.

I think it’s kind of sad actually. The human element is very strong and very important, if we have an empire who’s 90-95% right,

I can live with the occasional mistake.

Was making a reference to Hyde sitting him after his big game.

I was one of the Akin cheer squad a few years back.  I believed in him. I have seen him pitch a ton of games in person. Something is there. 

In Frederick? In Harrisburg on the road?

Framing is cheating. It's that good, accepted kind of cheating in ML ball but still cheating. I'm slowly coming around to the e-zone.
