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 feel bad that it happened to her but do we know he faked a news tip? She thought it was a news tip but the article says the player told her he had something to tell her. Not that that really makes this acceptable. While it sucsk that something like that happpenedl, the reality is Trey Mancini is in a relationship with a reporter. Relationships do sometimes start in the course of your job. I think in an ideal world, the player would say, "Hey I like you. Do you want to get a drink, grac a coffeet, etc.?? instead of trying to jump on her at a hotel room which is pretty disgraceful. At the same time, if I was a reporter, male or female and someone told me, "Hey I need to tell you something. Come to my hotel room," I'm pretty sure I'd press them on it. "Why can't you just tell me it on the phone. What's it about?" If I have a daughter, I'm going to tell her, "Be forewarned. Guys are often thinking of something sexual." It sucks you have to think that way but it's reality.    
    • Or maybe it will, but like most of the stuff thats discussed here - neither of us know.....
    • I don't think it is going to become SOP to ask guys to take deferments on non-guaranteed contracts.  
    • Nothing to see here!  This is the business side of "the shift."  Every team will be doing it 2-3 years from now.  Just because you're the first doesn't mean you're wrong or that the team is for sale - settle down.
    • Thorne and Palmer together make watching every game of a 100 loss season worth it. He has fun. Yes, some geeks will say he gets names wrong or may be drinking, so what. So do I. LOVED Dempsey as welll.n Such a homer, but so excited. His homerism is the whole reason why I still have MASN versus buying MLB.tv and getting the games through a VPN. I wanted to watch the pre and post-game shows. As an announcer, I didn't love Bordick but feel bad for a man with a ton of kids getting a pink slip. Let's hope he saved some of the $27 million he made during his career. I just read the Sun article. Thorne summed up why I liekd him perfectly. He got along great with Thorne, they told stories and had fun. Them having fun made me have fun. “We became great friends and will remain that way,” Thorne said. “It was great storytelling. We had a tremendous crew that broadcast the games. We genuinely had a good time, worked hard, but enjoyed it, and that’s the kind of stuff I’ll miss. We had a situation where I think we provided a really good broadcast, and it wasn’t accidental. It was because of the people who were working it, and I’ll miss those relationships.”  
    • I'm not suggesting heavy analytic content, just basic stuff sprinkled in.
    • Seeing as the team tried to defer some of his salary, trading Santander feels like an even larger possibility now.    I do admit to now worrying that they trade him for a lesser package though.
