Clutch hitting.

At least Arizona is up 6-0 and the Tigers are 3 outs away from a loss.

Hopefully the Red Sox picking one slot before the Orioles (if things hold) doesn't come back to haunt us.

Didn't they have a questionable first round pick this season?

Juan Soto pulled mid-game (12-4 gives cover), but perhaps trying to sit on NL batting title after 1-for-1 start.

Yeah, not a fan of that move. A 60-game season batting title is going to have an asterisk regardless, don't add to it with that kind of thing.

Could we get a Hunter Harvey back-to-back going into the offseason so he can learn what it feels like?   Perhaps even a SV opportunity for grins.

Would he be the first Brailyn to pitch in the majors?

It looks like he's the first in MLB. There was a Brailyn Duran in the Oriole' system a few years ago.

So what’s the consensus on Akin? He has a pretty good k rate, but a bit home run prone. Is he a solid starter, or just “a guy”? 
I like him and I think he’s a future piece, but what do you folks think?

Schubert’s last words were supposedly,  “and so it ends...”

 

Philip, did you see the PBS program the other night with young (30ish) artists performing Schubert compositions? Not my usual fare. I watched because a friend's son and daughter-in-law were among the performers.

I think he is just a guy. No more than a 4th starter at best in my opinion. Definitely an asset though.

I wouldn't be surprised if he was in the bullpen by 2022 if things mostly go well with the other starter prospects. He is definitely behind Rodriguez, Hall, and Baumann. I like him less than Kremer. Probably a tossup with him, Lowther, and Zimmermann.

Everybody breaks though, so nice to have quantity along with quality.

Sisco is at 221/368.

Yep, I continue to be annoyed that Severino had 50 percent more starts than Sisco. Sisco should be getting most of the starts against righties, in my opinion. Ultimately, neither of them is the long term answer at catcher (nor is either expected to be), so it doesn't much matter.

The superior defense argument doesn't come up much anymore.

Well if he gets a save it will have to be an 8 out save.

    • However, I think O's management want to see Mancini play a lot of 1B because it makes him more tradable. Getting 6 guys regular playing time in 5 spots in not that hard.   Each guy just gets a day off every 6 games. Plus injuries will cause time off for some players.
    • Do they even have a reporting team down there?    I have the impression that the beat reporters are working remotely and just getting whatever Zoom interviews the Orioles happen to feed them.  
    • I think its mostly blind faith and homerism to be honest.  But yea, I know the advanced stats are not in his favor. lol
    • Per Fangraphs he was 9 for 15 on bunt hit attempts.   He also was successful 4 of 5 times on sac bunts.   Pretty nice ratios in both regards.     In his previous 2 seasons he was 4 for 13 when bunting for a hit, and 4 for 6 on sac bunts.    Looking around the league, I do see some players who bunt pretty often and have success rates over 50%.    César Hernández, 39 bunt hits over the last 5 years (2nd in MLB) at a 57.4% success rate; Rougned Odor, 30 bunt hits (4th) at a 53.6% success rate.   The median success rate for the top 30 in total bunt hits is a bit over 40%. So, do I think Mullins could bunt as often as he did last year and sustain a 60% success rate?    No. But is it a really good weapon in his arsenal?    Yes.   He’s really, really good at it.     Without the bunt attempts I come up with .232/.285/.384 for last year.   But I think the bunts will always boost those numbers a little, though not as much as last year.    The OPS projections I’ve seen on Mullins have him between .637 (PECOTA) and .689 (Steamer).    That’s a reasonable range to guess, and if Mullins falls in there, he’s not a starting OF.    But he’ll get some playing time and we’ll see if he hits better than expected.    
    • Why wouldn't they report that? That was a specific comment Davis made that should have been followed up on. And I'll pass on the Harbaugh press conference.
    • Maybe he'll finally get that OPS back above .600.
    • They may have asked.  I suspect that coaches don't like to comment on specific things that players are working on.  Watch a John Harbaugh press conference some time.
