I really hate 7-inning doubleheaders.

Even with  7-inning games we are looking at 7 hours tonight. A 9-inning DH would last until 1 AM at the pace that these teams are setting.

I think that they probably would be starting most of these doubleheaders sooner if it were not a pandemic season, though.

These Twi-Night doubleheaders are the norm this year because of the fact that they are only 7-inning games.

Aside from the lousy defense and inconsistent pitching we are seeing what money can do. Tanaka and Cole.

7-inning DHs are bad. I understand why they are happening this season, but they remain bad.

sadly, we are bad too. We had to win had this series, and we can’t even keep from embarrassing ourselves. Bad defense and bad pitching, and Davis inexplicably playing..

@Luke-OHHey! Luke is here! Hi Luke!!
No, I’m not going to ask you any questions you can’t answer, but glad you’re still hanging out here.

I hope you are reading my discouraging comments and saying to yourself, “you are so wrong and I have the stats to prove it,” even though you cannot share them, and I hope you are very correct.

Hyde burned Wojo.  Should not have had to face Voight again there.

Meh... 2-1 or 10-1. The season is over. I thought it was silly when people suggested Hyde as a candidate for a manager of the year.

I know the game is over and we probably don't make the playoffs now.  Still not really an excuse for burning your relievers like Hyde has been doing.

    • At the end of the day, you guys are right. The market dictates the value and the market decided he was not worth what he was going to get in arbitration. Whether his previous production and age suggests he SHOULD be worth that, the market decided it was not. 
    • I'm not going to lie, but that is up there for one of the greatest lines in Hangout history.
    • I agree.    If you let Nunez go, it shouldn’t be primarily because of cost.    Now, if you think you can get equivalent or better production for your roster cheaper, that is okay.  But you don’t make your team worse over $2 mm or less.     It’s going to be interesting to see what happens with Nunez.    There’s going to be a lot of players on the market after the non-tender deadline I suspect.    I do think he’ll get a major league contract somewhere and will get above the minimum, but it might be less than he was projected to get in arbitration.     
    • Shaw would not crack our top 30.
    • With the injury histories of Hays, Santander and relative inexperience with mixed results of Mullins and Stewart, I'm not sure we can say that. No Nunez did clear waivers and no one traded for him so perhaps there is something else going on here with him, but the guy has been a pretty productive bat and is just going to be 27 years old next year. Either way, I get what you are saying about Shaw and I agree, I think Elias will end up DFAing him and trying to keep him in the system.
    • I'm not excited that the team is making moves because guys are cheap, especially when the other option is around $2 million, which should be chump change for major league organizations. I'm just not sure I get this particular set of skills. Now perhaps Elias is going to DFA him and try to sneak him into the minor league system as depth. I guess there are worse guys to do this with, but I really would like to think this is a transition year where the Orioles are starting to bring up guys that will be contributors to a winning future and not place holders.
    • This is actually incorrect. As of now, there is no DH in the NL in 2021, so he wouldn’t have a ton of value to teams over there.  If NL teams knew the DH was happening for them in 2021, maybe they would have found a suitor. And we don’t know that someone won’t pay him 1-2M in 2021.  We just know that no one was willing to trade for him and pay him that money.  Big difference. In any case, he’s not expensive.  The average MLB salary in 2020 was almost 4.5M.  He would have been paid well under that number.  In fact, with MLB minimum salary close to 600k, he will get paid much closer to the minimum salary than the average salary.  So no, he’s not expensive at all.
