You know it seems to me that one issue with having a "bullpen he" where you go into it planning on using about 6 pitchers, is that it increases the odds that you will have one of the 6 have one of those nights where he just doesn't have his best stuff or good command.  It happens to every pitcher on occasion, no matter how good, and the more pitchers you use the better chance you have of seeing one of them have that kind of night.

I was thinking the same. All those guys and one HAD to screw up. Good thing he did!!

They gotta sit Armstrong now, right? Can't imagine they will bring him in with a close lead.

Sulser is good for at least one more...

I did too. I was thinking. Tag up Valaika!

That was crazy...the way the ball passed over his glove and disappeared, looked like he caught it.  

Had he caught it, I'd have packed up and called it a night.  Now I'm all amped up.

Great job by Franco but...I don't get that play by Crawford.  He could have pegged Hays at home.  

Trade the run for the out, I get it...but it's not like they've got a lot of outs to work with this late in the game.

I dunno. It would have been close. I think Hays got too good of a jump and with Crawford going to the ground, he knew he probably wouldn't get him.

Elsewhere, the Pirates have lost the no hitter, the shutout, and trail 2-0.  And the Mets have fired hitting coach Chili Davis and the assistant hitting coach.

    • This is my position as well. It's not that I want to trade a player a like Mullins, but if Elias gets a trade offer with two or three really good prospects then you have to think about it. The goal is to be a winning franchise in a few years, and you can't allow any personal attachments to players in the organization to get in the way of winning. 
    • Again, your assumption is that if you trade away players x,y and z, that means we can’t contend.  That’s a poor assumption to make.
    • I don't want to trade them, or Mullins, or Fry, I just think that there is a very real possibility that doing so provides us with the fastest and most effective path to sustainable competitiveness.
    • Mullis is the best player on the team and right now he's one of the best players in the MLB. Since Mullins is under team control through 2025, he would be very expensive. The Orioles are going to need to complete the roster with some FA/Trade additions. Its nearly impossible to fill a competitive roster with draft picks, as you would have to hit at an incredibly high rate. Most Chris Davis's contract comes off the books after next year so if the Orioles truly want to be competitive, they'll need to work on signing the right guys in FA and making sure they lock up their home grown talent. 
    • That fans want to just trade away Mancini, Means and Santander is not the path to contention that I want to see.  Adding Adley, Grayson and DL next year is a big step forward.  Means , Grayson and DL plus two of the other 10 starters that will be in the organization to fill out the rotation spots is  a competitive move. Adley, Mancini, Mullins, Mountcastle, Hays, Santander add to a competitive team.   Vavra, Grenier, Dorrian are young players that may need to get a chance to improve the infield if they continue to impressive the rest of the season.   I think Elias' off season objective should be to field a winning and maybe a contending team in 2022.  He has enough improving players to build around.  Add the FAs needed to make this happen.  Mancini has shown that he is a important part of the offense and extending him a couple of years should make the O's into a winning team sooner. I do not like Hyde/Elias continuing to play Hays and Santander hurt.  I think they are good players when healthy.  They have Stewart, McKenna, Jones with  Diaz, Rizer, Turchin, all coming soon to bolster the outfield when injuries occur. As I have said the O's need to not waste the Adley, Grayson and DL years.  2022 can be a winning year if that is what Elias wants to do.  Its time to start winning.
    • Giving up high draft picks to bring Ubaldo Jimenez and Yovani Gallardo to the bandboxes of the AL East were 2 of DD's dumbest moves. I hated it then and was shouted down by people spamming "UBALDOMORE" over and over again like that somehow negated the fact that he had basically only had 1 good half season in the like 3 years prior to us sacrificing a pick to sign him. Ugh. Still mad about it lol.
