Orioles Beat The Phillies In 10 Innings (8/11)

Recommended Posts

Definitely an exciting, fun game but there was a lot of bad baseball last night.  That game was gifted to the Os and they did everything they could to return the gift.

That said, you gotta love the heart of this team.  They aren’t that talented, although there are a few guys who could potential long term pieces, but they give max effort and compete hard.  Hyde has these guys playing well for him right now.  That’s all we can ask for, especially for a team that lacks the horses needed to contend over the long haul.

I went to bed after the 9th because nine innings now take four hours and I have to get up for work at six.  But it was a crazy game.

What's the last inside-the-parker for the O's?  I really don't remember.

Hyde said 2011.    I watched the end of the game, then all of Gloatfest (that’s my name for the postgame show when they win), then 2 hours of TV, and still got up at 6:30.    Stupid, but I was keyed up (also had been working very late).

I don't know how you call that an inside-the-park home run.  Ellsbury had the ball in his glove and dropped it.  Then the relay skips by the catcher when Andino is still five steps from the plate.  If the same play happened in Boston I think it's a triple and an E-4.

I challenge the board to find me a MLB inside-the-parker in the last 25 years that didn't involve questionable judgment by a fielder and/or dicey work by the official scorer.

The 1-5 of Alberto Santander Nunez Ruiz and Severino is really fun to watch, and I was always excited for Hays' at bats last night in the seven hole.  Are they all long term pieces?  Too early to tell.  But for this bizarre year, taking everything in a vacuum, that is a fun offense to watch.

 

Hopefully we start seeing more Sisco and Severino alternating behind the plate and the other at DH, with Nunez at 1B.

Now none of these have completely clean play from the outfielders but  don't think they especially egregious.

Bonifacio's was probably the cleanest.  Those were all pretty good, but every one of them could have been a double or triple if the outfielder had played more conservatively.  They all involved leaping or diving for balls with a fairly small chance of success that turned a fairly routine play into a four base adventure.

I may never see this in my lifetime, but my dream baseball play is a lined shot over the CFers head, bounces to the 465 sign, and a clean relay has no shot at the guy at the plate.

I may be mistaken, but I think the last park with an outfield dimension longer than 440' was Yankee Stadium before the 1973-4 renovations.  It was 457' to deepest LC before the renovation, and about 463' to center.  Houston was 435' to the hill in CF, but they brought that in to 409 when they ditched the hill because... who knows?  Tiger Stadium was 440' to center.

Willie Wilson had 13 inside the park homers.  He was really fast, he played in the era of old-school concrete-backed Astroturf, and Royals/Kaufmann Stadium is 387 to RC and has that curve at the pole that sometimes keeps balls rolling along the fenceline.

Wilson had five inside-the-park homers as a rookie in 1979.  That astounding.  Seven of his first nine homers were ISTP.

George Brett had seven ISTPers.

In ancient history ISTP homers were about as common as over-the-fencers.  HOFer Jesse Burkett had 75 homers, 55 ISTP, three bounced.

    • 1966 ranks 107th of the 115 World Series ever played?   The hell with that!    That series was a huge upset and featured two 1-0 nail biters.  1970 ranks 95th?    The great O’s team over the Big Red Machine?   Brooks puts on the best defensive show of all time and this is what we get? 1983 ranks 84th?    So all three Orioles wins are in the bottom 32 World Series ever played, and worse than every World Series they lost?   Aargggghhh! Now for the killer: you have to jump all the way to 36 for Mets vs. Orioles in 1969.    Other than the fact that the Mets were a terrible team before ‘69, what about that series is better than 1983?    They are both 5 game series where the winning team lost the opener and then swept 4 straight.   Screw this!  This is why I hate all New York sports teams so much.     1971 — 20th.     1979 — 13th.    Now, I can’t really argue that, objectively speaking, the two seven game losses to the Pirates weren’t better World Series than the four other 4-5 game Series that the O’s played.  But lord it pains me to see them up so high.   And just to add insult to injury: “When Eddie Murray batted in the eighth inning of Game 7, the championship leverage index in the moment was higher than for any other play in history. He flied to the edge of the warning track, and after a slightly awkward break, Dave Parker ran it down. Five more feet and it could have looked a lot like the ball Nelson Cruzmisplayed, for which David Freese got a triple, in 2011.” https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/29104085/ranking-every-world-series-mlb-history
    • FV dropped from 50 to 45 and ceiling dropped from 55 to 50.   That feels a little harsh to me.   But based on the write-up, it seems Tony heard some things about Diaz’s camp that were a bit more negative than what has been stated publicly.    I think Diaz is a guy who could exceed his projection if things go right for him.  
    • Ceiling grade dropped from 55 to 50 this year.    
    • Hopefully “better than those guys” is not the standard we’re trying to meet.   
    • One name I haven’t seen listed yet is Hunter Harvey, who is still rookie-eligible.  He was ranked 10th last year. For now I will assume he’s been downgraded after being somewhat less impressive in 2020 than in 2019, but it’s also possible that Tony didn’t realize he was still eligible.    The next two on last year’s list were Wells and Rom.   That’s not a pairing here, but Zimmermann did reach the majors and didn’t embarrass himself, so Wells and Zimmermann is possible.   Assuming Tony meant what he said about not shuffling the order of incumbent players who weren’t in Bowie, McKenna-Hall and Hall-Mayo aren’t possibilities since there are several incumbent players ahead of Hall.    That leaves Baumler-Mayo or Mayo-Baumler.    The latter seems more likely since Mayo was the higher pick and got the higher bonus.     As between Mayo-Baumler and Wells-Zimmermann, I think Tony will go with the younger pairing with more upside.    Wells and Zimmermann are both 5th starter/swingman types.   And my gut tells me that Wells not being invited to Bowie is a bad sign for him.   So I’m going Mayo-Baumler.   
    • Got this pairing correct.   Not that excited about Vavra’s writeup, though.    
    • I think it all depends on how much his deception plays up. He throws a little harder than Milone and his release point and extension on his release helps it play up as well.  I like him, but was disappointed that Elias didn't have him at the auxiliary camp.
