I'll slow my roll on the kid that they're hyping like they are when he fails. We're about to see him in AAA. If he can't be ready 12 months from now than the hype isn't real.

Baumann would have been AAA last year if it happened. My only concern with him is health. Again, if 12 months isn't in the cards than he's not the guy we think he is.

Agree that a year from now is realistic.

Im just not sure if they are putting Bradish on this level yet.

Here’s part of a synopsis I wrote of a Matt Blood interview last fall:

“Geoff & Brett asked Blood who are some of the pitchers that impressed him a lot at the Bowie site, and he specifically mentioned Bradish unprompted.  He said that while guys like Hall, Rodriguez & Baumann (among others) are all very impressive and get a lot of attention on top prospect lists, Bradish is someone who is under the radar nationally, but not for them.”

If there’s one thing I don’t care about, it’s pitcher wins in the minors.   They matter even less there than in the majors.    

Now, I will be interested to see how long the O’s are going to stick with what looks like a 75-pitch limit, for other reasons.    It’s a tricky year due to last year’s inactivity and the desire to limit workload this season, but to really assess a starting pitcher candidate you do need to know how they do on pitches 75-100.    I’m thinking they take the kid gloves off at some point, but gradually.  
 

I realize it's pretty uncool in 2021 to worry about wins.  I remember stressing over Palmer getting to 20 wins a few times in the 70s. It still means something to me for the starting pitcher to win the game.

I have defended the wins stat against the charge that it is “useless” many times.    It’s not useless, just very imprecise and dependent on things not in the pitcher’s control.    But I’ve never cared about it at all at the minor league level.

Yea I saw that.  Nonetheless, I think we need to see more of him.  Definitely worth getting excited about though.

Anyone know when he is scheduled to pitch again?  I'm thinking about going to one of the games in Brooklyn this weekend.

Looks like he is going every 5 or 6 days.   His last start was 5/21 so that means he should be pitching tonight or tomorrow.   Sorry it doesn't appear that he will be pitching this weekend.

    • Oh, I don’t agree with it, but after years of having arguments about “sunk costs” I’m left without any other impression.  In my mind, including Davis when the team was horrible, and now Severino or Franco, these guys are taking the roster spot of someone more deserving. Not always, but there’s a pretty good case for someone to take any of those spots.
    • Per MLB rules online, the ball is live if it is “unintentional interference.”
    • He was emptying the tank there.   The first inning or two, he was slower.   The first touch of 94-95 I noticed wasn't until a few innings along, on a 2 out 2 strike pitch.   But he really seemed to pick up steam in the middle. Hartford seemed kind of terrible, but at least he held serve, if not a little more.   On the Either/Or, I'd easily pick Rodriguez still.
    • It was Roth followed by Roth tonight in Delmarva.   I don’t recall that happening before with them.  
    • For the second time in a couple of weeks, an Orioles ball boy touched a fair ball that bounced in his direction tonight and the ball was ruled dead when he touched it. Unlike the other incident, this ball literally came right at the ball boy’s chair. He barely had to move his glove to a spot maybe 18 inches under his lap.  He was mightily embarrassed when he realized his mistake.   The other incident was more egregious, though neither was good and the the ball boy/girl supervisor really needs to call a meeting and let all these kids know it’s an unacceptable mistake.  (I saw another ball boy/girl do this in a recent O’s road game, I believe). That said, here’s my question.  Assume the kid jumps from his chair and the ball either rattles around under the chair or ricochets off one of the legs and back out.   In either instance, Is that a live ball? I think the kid is supposed to try to move the chair to avoid those scenarios, but I’m still curious what the ruling would  be.   By the way, a few innings later the same ball boy did a nice job of snagging a foul ball that had bounced off the side wall and was about to go into the field of play.   The fans sitting over there cheered him, something I doubt they would have done normally but they did it to, quite literally, “cheer him up” after his prior mistake.  Classy move.  
    • I don’t mind it much when the TV guys do it, since you can see the action.  It bothers me more on radio, where you’re dependent on the announcers to know what’s going on.   A skilled announcer can do an interview between the action but describe the game decently at the same time, and minimize the spillover.
