Recommended Posts

Come on people. Root for the good guys. Only four more, Good or bad, enjoy ‘em while we got ‘em.

Plenty of time to argue about the roster after Sunday.

Go O’s!

I'm here.   Hanser with a steal.  

Can't believe Mountcastle's ball didn't touch the wall.  It was a moon shot and when Chavis caught it his back was pretty much against the monster.  Lower that launch angle 1 degree and we'd have heard that satisfying thud of ball hitting the green monster.

Nice rally so far.   3 in, nobody out, runners on 2d and 3rd.  

Double play could be a rally killer unless Iggy can get this runner home.

If the Orioles win tonight, they will have salvaged a 10-game split (5 games apiece) in their 2020 season series with the Red Sox.

Ugh.   Great play by Chavis, who’s botched several in this series.

I bet Urias didn’t tag. On one replay he looked like he was barely past the base when Chavis was already up and throwing.

Well, good inning but could’ve been better.    To be honest, I’m not sure the catcher tagged Urías before his foot reached the plate, even though the ball was there in plenty of time.

I’ve been on my bike listening, but not watching. I have a question: why didn’t Mullins tag up and go to third on the throw to home?

Meanwhile, I’m getting used to Kevin Brown, though I’ll never take him home to meet the ‘rents, but that color guy is awful, and I mean even awful for Baltimore.

Could be a couple of things.

Assumed ball wouldn’t be caught or they would cut throw off and he would be easy out at 3rd. 

Urias had to make a mistake to me. He didn’t get back to the bag in time.

It’s Geoff Arnold and Brett Hollander tonight on radio.

    • Something in the analytics must show for Puig that Elias and company see.   You can get him enough at bats as most players don’t play 162 games.  The question is more how long will they keep Diaz down.  If they want him playing full time half the season then Puig makes some sense. I think Mancini will be like a 5 day a week player if you give Stewart a day off a week and Santander a day off every two week and same with Mountcastle you can get Puig 4 days a week and still giving most the at bats to those 4.
    • 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.
