3rd Game vs Yankees

Recommended Posts

The Yankees went 0-for-15 in their last 15 Plate Appearances of the game, with only one of those batters reaching safely on an error ...... I didn't see it, and I didn't even hear it, but it looks good on paper for an Oriole fan.

The Future just entered the Game.

Rutschman to catch the knuckleballer Jannis

Gunnar Henderson at 3B.

Why the heck is MASN not televising this game?

It costs money.

Somebody said earlier about the Yanks with a lot of vets on the road. Hyde announced Means at least 2 days ago. A lot of times he's hidden the "good" starters from AL East clubs. Wonder if that's why the Yanks are stacked?

That was Buck.

Glad to hear he only threw 30ish pitches. I was afraid he might have had that many in the first 2/3 of an inning.

It was nice of ghirardi-lite* to let Hyde sit Means then bring him back out for the 2nd inning.

 

 

*He's a Yankee. I don't CARE what his name is.

    • What’s the corresponding move to activate Hays?  Looks like just a straight swap with McKenna is likely. Sulser, Lakins, or Tate, could be an option too. With playing in an NL for two games, and having two off days, we may elect to go with a bigger bench and drop an bullpen arm. 
    • The ball was in the shadows and dropped like 5 ft outside of the shadows in RF for a hit. I think Franco probably couldn’t see it and got a bad read. A tough L. 
    • Means Is only behind Glasnow in WAR, ahead of Cole and Bieber. Good company. I hope the breakout continues. 
    • Currently, the pitching staff is 14th in WAR (in the majors), 10th best in walk rate, 17th in total ERA and 7th in BP ERA. Nice numbers considering we apparently have the worst catchers in baseball.  I’m shocked that they could be this awful defensively, game calling, framing, etc...and yet we are finding some early success after building on last year, which wasn’t as bad as suspected. It’s almost as if the catchers defense can be overcome by other factors! (Or people are just clueless as to how to actually judge a C defense)
    • 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.
