Wouldn't have minded leaving him out there and have him work out of the jam himself. Young pitchers need to face some adversity and need to learn to get out of tough situations. 

Agreed. Lopez wasn’t getting hit. Walk to judge is fine.

Lol Hyde. Bring a guy in who's been on paternity leave and hasn't pitched in a week to the heart of the order with bases loaded. Genius!

Always nice to have a Yankees wake up call to bring back reality. 

Dumb managing did not help here, but afterall, we are talking about Lopez and Armstrong.

Is this the place I come to complain about Hyde? As soon as an exciting young manager becomes available, he should be gone. There’s nothing impressive about him. He’s just a poor decision maker and not inspiring. 
 

He’s fine if we’re just taking a beating, but we should be seeking a replacement for the new cavalry

I think the general MO of a full tear and rebuild involves changing the manager when the team is supposed to be competitive.

Some young guy like Tony La Russa gets the nod once the build is complete.

I guess he figured Armstrong was well rested.

I like Hyde, but I've been saying since around mid-2019 that he doesn't seem to be a good in-game strategist, but it's hard to tell because, I assume, he has objectives in addition to trying to win games.

What objective tells him to pitch Armstrong in that situation? I get that he doesn’t think we will win the game but you have to pitch your best available RP there.

lol what cavalry? Pisses me off, Lopez was pitching pretty well and then gives up a cheap-ass 320 ft. fly-ball homer and then starts nibbling.

    • F cancer! I lost a good friend to leukemia about 15 years ago. 28 years old and newly married.
    • With he O's already 7 back in the standings it likely that Matt Harvey, Freddy Galvis and Pedro Severino will to on the trade block in July.   Harvey and Galvis because they are free agents at the end of the season.  Severino because he will be in in 2nd arbitration year and the O's are probably not going to want pay him.  They probably will not offer arbitration so if any team will  offer something in trade for him at the trade deadline the O's will probably move him.  Adley will be the O's starting catcher in 2022. Harvey leaving would just make more room for Kremer, Lopez, Akin, Zimmermann, Lowther  and at some point Baumann in the rotation. If Galvis goes  Valaika and Urias would take over the SS duties.   I look for Wilkerson to be promoted soon and given a shot at 2B.  Franco has no trade value IMO and will probably stay the season at 3B.   Valaika, Urias, Ruiz and Wilkerson all have options so they can be moved up and down to Norfolk depending of production and health.   Jones and Bannon don't appear ready for the majors to me and are already being challenged for their AAA spots by Vavra and Dorrian.   I don't think Richie Martin makes it through the season on the 40 man roster if he continues his poor hitting.  They can use his roster spot for someone else. Sisco, Wynns and Cumberland will share the catching duties  if Severino is traded until Adley is ready.  I don't expect Adley to be promoted to the majors this season. Santander, Wilkerson and Cumberland could help the O's offense.   I don't know whether Cumberland catching would be a good thing for the young pitchers though.  i think of more as a hitter.  
    • I'm still sticking to my prediction, exactly 70 wins.
    • Last week, Glenn Clark had Jim Callis on his show.  I heard a few min of the interview and he was talking about the Vandy pitchers. While I can’t say I would be upset if they took either of them, I can say right now that I hope they don’t.  I think there are a lot of red flags there that give me a lot of pause.
    • I could still see this team winning 70-73 games this season. There have been some pleasant surprises. Some of the best pitching we've seen over the past few years. (3.44 Bullpen ERA is 4th best in the AL, even after a bit of a shaky week for the pen') Could really use a decent catcher and 2nd baseman, though.
    • I think that's the key. It's "Pod Seating" so you're already in a group of people you came to the game with and you know them. Away from that group (concessions, bathroom breaks) you probably should mask up. I know I would.
