How far is Baumann behind Kremer in development?

Nothing here to argue with, but if Baumann looks to be healthy, pitching well and successful this spring, I would not be surprised to see him start the year in the rotation or at least once the team needs a 5th starter.

It looks like you don’t need a 5th starter until the 14th and really it looks like you may need the 5th start again for about 10 or so days after that.  So, they could keep him down, gain the extra year of service time and he would basically only miss one start.  
 

They could just have the 14th be a BP game.

And that would make some sense if that's the case (I haven't looked at the schedule but I'll take your word). I can see the Orioles doing that because if they can gain an extra year for one potential missed start, that certainly would be prudent..

Leaving him down wouldn't even be about service time, you would be better off from a roster flexibility standpoint.

Buck liked that one right before an All-Star game.   Bonus points if the momentary Ironbird is a near All-Star.

I figure a bridge way too far, but age-based free agency it seems like would help with youth appeal.   It doesn't really matter where the service time line is placed if it exists to be gamed.   There will be enough to enjoy anyway, but I doubt it'd kill Gunnar Henderson for MLB pitchers to strike him out some.  40-man space for Cesar Valdez isn't completely without its charms.

Reliever-carousel wise, I could get behind say 16-man rosters for wildcard games.  I'm sure Theo's on this.

Yea you are right about the 7th.  I skipped that one for some reason.  Still, it’s only 2 starts missed to get the extra service time.

It's easy to get extra service time, especially on a team that isn't pretending to contend.

It's harder with position players if they are doing well but yea, with pitchers it's super easy.  Sorry, we need another bullpen arm and you have options.  See you in 10 days.

Agreed. It'll be a different story if they're doing this with AR next year, assuming health and performance this year.

    • The issue is that you are intentionally taking the GMs statement that the Os are not measuring success by wins as meaning something else....that the Orioles are not trying to win games. And then extrapolating that into the Orioles are trying to lose games.    That simply isn’t what is going on. And I think you know that. I think in general folks are on board with the rebuild. We are also at the point where we are about as far from being competitive as we have been in a long time.      I don’t know how much the pandemic has effected the rebuild, but minor leagues have been shut down for a loooong time.  I can’t help but think it probably cost us a full year.    I don’t know if Hyde will be the manager in 2 months or 2 years.  I really don’t worry about that at all. Right now, I just want to see the Os get better and develop talent.    I would say this is the last year the Os can continue with a mindset of we are not measuring success with wins. I think it is likely that success next year will be marked by small improvement to something along the lines of 75-80 wins.    I am trying to enjoy the moments.    The moments Mancini reminds us of what he can be. The moments Mountcastle reminds us that he could be in the mix for ROY. The moments John Means looks like a real #1 or #2. And yes the moment we get to see AR, Diaz and others crack the lineup.    It’s not the same as fretting over when Hyde rests Santander or who he pitches in the 8th or 9th. But this ain’t Toronto and whether or not we use our historically good closer in the 6th, 11th or ever. Hyde is gonna learn or he won’t. In the end, of the GM gets the talent part, getting someone to manage will be a breeze. 
    • Personally, I'm surprised Sisco didn't get charged with a PB.  He has looked bad this year.
    • Yea, to think some people actually bought the idea that no outside food had to do with covid.
    • I’m not going until I don’t have to wear a mask outside. MASN will do just fine until this mess is over and people aren’t ratting others out for mask vs. no mask.
    • Yeah, hard to see how there could be an instinct (in any useful definition of the term) for a heavily rule-regulated game like baseball. I think the "feel," "knack," etc. for a sport arises from early inculcation and many years of repetition, coaching, and emulation. Even "tools," though necessary and closer to what one might consider innate abilities, can't provide that. In fact, I think that there are just as many times that a "hunch" (the closest I can come at the moment to defining instinct) leads to bad results as good ones, e.g. trying to take an extra base or steal one at the wrong time or in the wrong game situation or all sorts of guesses, such as what type of pitch will be thrown or where a ball is going to be hit, when not based in study or prep. Sometimes a manager's role is to rein in what the player's "instinct" is, such as when a pitcher is convinced they can go longer, but actually should be taken out.
    • April 18, following series win vs Ranger: Win Div: 0.0% Win Wild Card 0.0% Make Playoffs 0.0% It was fun while it lasted, there is now zero chance.
    • I was very hungry so I paid the $13.50 I think it was for a regular Boogs sandwich and an additional $3 or $4 for the beans. I do not recommend this. The beans come in a tiny cup (maybe 4 or so spoonfuls worth) and taste the same as Bush’s. Absolute ripoff.
