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?

Yeah, very questionable.

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.

Hyde obviously doesn't think he can handle the pressure of closing.

    • I was at that game in 1993. I was seated in the lower deck of Yankee Stadium on the third-base side, looking out toward right field.  I saw the play from pretty much the same angle that the umpire would have seen it. And I didn't know, until I read about it in the paper the next day, what had happened, because I completely lost track of the ball as it descended against the backdrop of three decks of seats filled with fans.  I assumed, since Mattingly jogged around the bases, that it had landed in the seats beyond the wall. Perhaps the umpire, from his vantage point on the field, should have been close enough to see the play better than I could.  But I could understand why it could have been tough for him.
    • Zimmermann had a bad debut (3 IP 5 ER) but a good second outing (4 IP 1 ER).   So, I certainly didn’t get a negative impression of him.   I look forward to seeing what he can contribute next year.   
    • For 2B how about bringing back Jonathan Schoop or Jurickson Profar. Todd Feazier one year  deal for3B. 
    • I agree with RZ about sticking with Ruiz.  We don't have anyone better internally unless someone switches positions.   If there is a clear upgrade available at 3B for the major league roster, I think we could pursue anyone that is cheap - cheap to acquire and cheap to pay.  Ruiz was available as a cheap, failed prospect and if we could acquire another one and try it again, I would be fine with that.
    • I think I tend to be not as high on overslots as most people. Let's take Hokum Sven Kim as a hypothetical.  Hokum's number is $1.5 million.  He's still there in the eleventh round and the O's pick him up and with the savings from going underslot in the first round given Hokum his 1.5M. Now some folks will say the O's picked up a mid second round talent in the eleventh round, since 1.5M is slot for the 49.5 pick in the draft. The way I look at it, if other teams though Hokum was a mid second round talent they would have just picked him and coughed up the 1.5M. Either Hokum's number would have been even higher if he had gone earlier, which is possible, or teams didn't think his price matched his talent and he's probably closer to say a third round talent.
    • Maybe not even better than what we have now, but cheaper (i.e. not arbitration eligible). When you are in such a cost cutting move that you are getting rid of coaches, I think they will look long and hard at going to arbitration with anyone who is unlikely to be a prime MLB performer for the next several years. At least they won't get any flak for cancelling Fanfest to save a few pennies this offseason.
    • Probably true. In fairness, Tony said 17-25 could be placed many ways. Small preferences could move a guy several spots.
