Statistically, Kramer was much better in his start tonight than he was in his first 2 outings of the season ...... he recorded more outs, ceded less runs, did not allow any extra-base hits, walked fewer batters, and had a considerably better Strikes-to-Balls ratio.

86% of the outs that Kremer recorded (12 out of 14) came via the Strikeout and the Groundout. 

 

 

14 OUTS: )  6 Strikeouts, 4 Groundouts (Including 2 Double Plays), 1 Popout, 1 Flyout

I thought Kremer was a little fortunate.   He got behind a lot of batters but got away with it.    But, it’s improvement and I’ll take it.

So annoying 

What’s annoying about it?    We don’t need five starters this time through the rotation and may well have use for a reliever.

You could just have Kremer available out of the pen.

So keep Kremer the starter and move Lopez to the pen.

Kremer shouldn’t miss ML starts this year unless he is hurt and/or rehabbing.

Plus, keeping him here makes sure that he keeps working with Holt, who is supposed to be the savior or something.

This is a trivial issue IMO.   They aren’t going to sit Lopez after the dominant start he just had.   My guess is the O’s will use Kremer as a starter in an alt site game and that will keep him on turn.   

I can see the argument for doing it differently, but it’s a very, very minor thing.

It is just another example of Elias's utmost concern being manipulating service time.

It’s just a dumb decision.  Dumb decisions are never trivial imo.

Does it stunt his development?  No, of course not.  It’s just poor.  When you are saying the season means nothing, we don’t care about winning, etc...the single most important thing is getting guys out there and giving them as much experience as possible.

We already know Lopez isn’t good.  We don’t need to keep seeing more of him to prove that.

And Lopez wasn’t dominant the other day either.

I don’t think service time means anything here.  The 10 days down won’t change anything with his service time.

Elias is not saying he does not care about winning.  Here is an interview with Rob Long where he talks about wanting to win this season.

That seems very unlikely to me.   Kremer already had 53 days of service time coming into 2021, due to the fact that every day of service last year was counted as 2.7 days.    Kremer would have to be in the minors for more than two months to finish this year with less than a year of service time.    At the same time, he’s not a super two candidate in any way, shape or form.

    • Yea I've been to two games this season, the win on Sunday (awesome game) and a loss a couple weeks back. During the first game the mask requirement was very strict. They had people walking around telling you to mask up in your seats if you weren't eating or drinking. This Sunday no one seemed to care. Some people had them on, some didn't, but I didn't see any ushers telling people to put them on in their seats. I suppose with the new CDC guidelines they may have opted for a more "we recommend it but don't require it" approach. I'm fully vaccinated and still wore my mask when walking around the stadium, but I was happy to take it off for the entire time I was in my seat this time around.   And I think one thing we can all agree on, Nats Park kinda sucks. Hope you have fun though, @RVAOsFan!
    • Was hoping this would happen by the end of the year. Hopefully he keeps up his hot start. If neither he nor Kjerstad drop off (certainly no sure thing), we could have 6 top 100 guys in the off-season lists (adding the 2021 #5 pick). Kjerstad seems more likely to drop off than Henderson in my opinion, I can't imagine they go far enough underslot for the #5 pick to not crack the top 100. Less than a 5 percent chance that Adley graduates and a 1 percent chance that DL Hall graduates in my opinion.
    • I’m still expecting offensive improvement over the remainder of the season but I must admit that the offense is worse than I thought it would be.     Mullins is far exceeding expectations but no one else is and a lot of players are below expectations.  Getting Santander back will be helpful, if he can start hitting and Mountcastle returning to form would be a huge boost. Just gotta wonder if we see improvement from C, 3rd and 2nd and if/when Mullins declines, how far is the drop?
    • Well, like I said, someone can go to Bowie. Between Henderson, Ortiz or Westburg, we can have someone in AA.  You can argue that either or all of them could be there imo. But generally speaking, you are correct. To me, it’s more important for Henderson and Westburg to play as much at SS as they can.  We need to figure out if those guys can stay there.  You should have some very solid idea by the end of the year...and perhaps, they already know but just in case you they don’t, you should be using this year to be sure. You know guys like Ortiz and Servideo can play SS, at least from the info we have heard.  If they have to play second base or the OF some this year while you figure out Henderson and Westburg, so be it.
    • My mental image of the 1960s is that it was a lot of low scoring pitchers duels with a lot of little shortstops bunting and stealing bases.  But the stealing bases part is all wrong.  In 1966 the Orioles had the best offense in the league and stole 55 bases all year, caught 41 times. The only teams to steal 100 bases were the White Sox and A's, and both of them were within 0.02 runs of being the worst offenses in the AL. In '66 the average AL team stole four fewer bases than the average AL team in 2019. In 1964 the Orioles were 4th in the majors in steals, but Luis Aparicio was the only player on the team with more than four.  Luis led the AL in steals nine straight years, but those included totals of 21, 28, 29, 31, and 40.
    • Can’t really argue with any of these on their own merits, but you do then face the question of how you reallocate the playing time to account for these changes.   For example, Joey Ortiz is hitting .295/.404/.458 at Aberdeen.   Good, but not necessarily promotion material at this early stage.    So what do you do with his playing time if Henderson and Westburg are suddenly both in Aberdeen as well?     Adam Hall is off to a slow start there, but are you going to demote him when he already played a full, successful season at Delmarva in 2019?     These are tricky decisions.   I can’t disagree with the idea that you look at the players who are most likely to be successful major leaguers, and when they are ready to move up a level, you move them up regardless of who else that affects.   But, it does make things more complicated when you’ve got other decent prospects who are going to lose playing time if a promotion is made.
