9-22 The Bosox welcome the Os

It’s pretty easy to separate the defense from the offense from the pitching. Pitching is good, everything else is lousy... and the broadcasting is awful, too.

I'm getting a clear, crisp picture, with no freezing so far, on mlb.tv.

There are some good things to say about Orioles pitching this year. Means had a bumpy start but look s to be getting into a groove. I'm cool with his ERA being a run lower than his FIP every year. Cobb has been healthy, which is pretty good unto itself. Kremer has impressed in his three starts. D.L.on Tate (see what I did there) has a live arm and may prove the Britton trade more worthwhile than acquiring a negative WAR third baseman. And Akin looks truly competent as a starter so far tonight.

Overall I am pretty happy but it does seem like we are limping to the finish line. Glad it’s only a 60 game season at this point.

There are a lot of bad hings about this team, too. But I am savoring the last of the summer wine (I think I used that phrase correctly).

Akin’s missed his spot several times in this game.   The defense obviously hurt him in the 2nd inning but he’s not that sharp tonight.   I still enjoy watching him though.

Biggest concern for let’s say the next 1/2 years is the Infield maybe minus 1B and the rotation. At least with the rotation we can give some opportunities the next couple of years to arms I look forward to seeing.

Yeah he did. But he looked pretty confident. Like he could possibly become a BOR. I have or had pretty much become resigned to thinking of him as a reliever.

The elephant in the room regarding the infield is the health of Trey next year. If he is capable of playing to/close to his top ability, he is going to be the First Baseman. But tonight, we have no idea how things will look 5-6 months from now with his recovery. His presence may directly affect Nunez's roster spot. Ruiz's, too.

My attitude is we have to assume Trey will not be his normal self next year.    I hope that assumption will prove wrong, but Trey has his work cut out for him.    I just want him to be cancer-free; anything else is gravy.

    • I would think a lot of teams would want to double up on the GCL this year in view of the lost MiL season last year.    So, we’ll have to see if the GCL can accommodate that.  
    • Yep, you're right, I do now remember reading that Elias said he would like to have two GCL teams when discussing losing a current team. Unless I missed it though, I haven't heard it officially yet though. Guess I can check.
    • I already said why it’s foolish in several different posts. 1). There’s no hurry 2). He hasn’t shown to be good enough  3) I want to see how he does with bet tw r weapons and a better system To name a few... As I have said, this version of Lamar is not worth a monster extension.  I just can’t fathom how anyone can believe that to be the case unless your goal is to not win titles.     I think he can become the player who is worth the extension but he has to show it first.  I’m not going to just assume that he will be that guy. BtW, your reasoning was why you sign him to that extension instead of franchising him.  I’m not saying I am for franchising him(and you have TWO more seasons before you have to think about doing this anyway), I am saying that because you have that in your back pocket, there isn’t an immediate hurry to sign him.  You have him under your control for a while.  So, make him prove that he is worth that extension.
    • This is true. I hope it's nothing, but we have definitely seen a history of guys shut down with elbow "strains", feel good over the winter when not pitching, then needing surgery. Let's hope not but I agree, I'll be holding my breath a bit until I see him healthy and throwing well this spring in games.
    • I understand that the O’s are planning to field two GCL teams this year.    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.mlb.com/amp/news/orioles-minor-league-affiliates-for-2021.html https://www.masnsports.com/steve-melewski/2020/12/os-expected-to-field-two-gcl-teams-notes-on-shortstop-and-more.html
    • Agreed. I actually like see both him and Hernandez sharing some time at SS or if his arm isn't as strong, slide him over to 2B and see what they look like together.
    • We'll see, but I just don't see Elias concerned over control six years from now with a 25-year old. Plus, we don't know what the next bargaining agreement will hold for free agency or arbitration eligibility.
