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.

    • Back to the Snell/Fairbanks/Anderson/Castillo even numbered game quartet to try and set up Buehler (and Kershaw?) v. The World Wednesday night. The Dodgers have clearly dented the relief aces, but I don't look for any process change in Game 6. This feels like it should be over 4-1 but for the gods putting their thumbs on the scale last night - an excellent bonus baseball gift.
    • You a few others really are missing my point. I'm done trying to make it. Read what I wrote in other posts.
    • Very good game tonight. Both pens were real good. 
    • That fact that he pointed out Anthony Sanders and his race as being the one screwed also made me question it.
    • I'm surprised by this comment, Tony.  I'm not sure how you can blame Elias for Yaz coming out of nowhere to perform as he has for the Giants.  You really think there was reason to expect that Elias should have seen that coming?  Wow.
    • I’m guessing that a claim was probably filed against Elias and the Orioles for pension fraud (possibly by the agent of a coach on the staff that didn’t get the pension benefits), but since MLB approved Holt before the season as one of the 4 coaches designated to receive pension benefits, that’s why this is a non-story.  The quote from the MLB spokesperson said Holt received prior approval from the league and shared it with the MLBPA, so the only possible explanation is that the MLBPA is challenging Holt’s approval since he wasn’t a full-time uniformed coach this year, and that is likely what this botched article by Bill Madden is attempting to convey.  Even if a charge of pension fraud was filed by the MLBPA, or the agent of a coach separate from the MLBPA, it sounds like it’s dead in the water because MLB released a statement saying Holt was approved and there is no ongoing investigation that could result in discipline for Elias/Orioles.     Simply put, Bill Madden did a piss poor job of reporting this accurately, and tried to connect it with the Astros, which is why the article lead with “Ex-Astros” and “fraud” to get readers to click on it.  In reality, all Madden had to do is verify the story with MLB, like our local beat writers did, and he would have been told that this is a non-issue because Holt received prior authorization from the league to receive pension benefits, meaning this was not some covert, fraudulent attempt by Elias to get Holt on the pension plan without going through the proper approval process.  That’s why most of us thought from the very start that this story didn’t pass the smell test, and now we know we were proven correct in that assessment.
