I honestly don't think he's right yet. I know he's getting older, I'd rather we focus on getting him healthy and hopefully pitching to his potential. I don't feel like going to the majors this year accomplishes anything but more stress on his arm.

Maybe if he goes to the bullpen for an inning or two, but I don't want him starting in the majors, tbh. 

 

If something is wrong with him, then they should shut him down.

Otherwise, I don’t see any harm in him being up here.

I don't think it's quite that binary, but I'm speculating on his health.

0 walks is great to see.  Seems like some starts his control is way off.  The physical issues from last summer, the report here and from Tony that the velocity is down a tick or 2 or 3, lead me to believe that he's not 100% but this is what he is now.  It could just be inconsistent mechanics or it could be an issue that's causing that.  He had forearm/elbow issues.  Ponson and Tanaka, IIRC, had partial tears of the UCL, but continued pitching and never required surgery. Not saying that's the case but the thought is in my head.

It should be both.

Means, Harvey, Akin, Baumann, Wells....We don't need to see Watkins anymore.  He's not good.  Ellis doesn't need to keep starting either.  If you want to see Ellis more than Harvey, thats fine but I am good with Harvey getting some more time out of courtesy to a vet player and just to save innings on the younger arms.

Well.............

It's show time!  Always nice to see someone graduate....congrats to Mike.

:)

Roch says he will be in the bullpen in the beginning at least.

So is Baumann up?  He was just getting into a rhythm. I wish we would’ve let him make a few more starts in AAA.

Just getting into a rhythm?   He’s been pretty money since the beginning of July.    10 starts (6 at Norfolk), 2.02 ERA, 0.98 WHIP, 9.55 K/9.   I’d say it’s a fine time to see what he can do.

Good for him. As I said, I wouldn't want to work him too much in the majors, but he definitely gives me a reason to watch.

The O's are going to screw up this #1 pick I think.

Yeah, they've been semi-competent for the last week...and there are far to many terrible teams out there for that

    • Why are you picking June 1?   Under current rules, they could call him up any time after April 14 and he wouldn’t be a free agent until after the 2028 season.  If you are suggesting they’ll defer him to try to avoid him becoming a Super 2 after the 2024 season, (1) I disagree they’ll do that and (2) the cutoff date for Super 2 changes every year, isn’t known in advance,and could be 2-3 weeks before June 1 or 1-2 weeks later.  In 2017, Josh Hader debuted on June 10 and he still qualified as a Super 2 after the 2019 season.  
    • Yeah, so I’ve held off telling the story about my interaction w/ Jones, but he’s no longer an Oriole, so.... I posted years ago about a hitting clinic he held at SDSU w/ Harold Reynolds. It was a fun time for me and my daughters taking a road trip from Los Angeles.  After the clinic was over we, of course, went to see about getting something signed or a picture. We waited patiently as he signed for a number of people and then I approached him to get a picture of him and my girls. He started to lineup to do so and then balked at the idea, saying it would take too much time, at which the expressions of my kids faces visibly dropped. Disappointing to say the least, but I explained it away with some such fatherly bs.  I never mentioned it in the thread about our trip because I knew there would likely be disbelief or outright anger for me calling out an Oriole player, especially Jones. After all these years, it wasn't a huge deal, but yes, I lost respect for him. As far as I know, Palmer has always been great with not only fans, but going out of his way to be available for them. There’s also no one else I’d rather listen to call a game than Jim Palmer. His stories are part of that.
    • Well Machado should’ve been dealt the offseason before but somehow we were still going for it with a team that actually won 47 games. The only thing bad I could say about what DD did in the Machado trade, is that he should’ve gotten more A ball players versus trying to get players that were closer to being ready. However, The Dodgers had just spent $50+ million on Diaz, Pop was 20, and Kremer was leading all of milb in SO. 
    • Unless the CBA changes there is zero incentive to call up AR before June 1. It’s not like another 60 days of “bad” PR is going to hurt this franchise any more. 
    • Oh, absolutely.   The O’s were leading the division by six games when this news broke.   It stung pretty badly to lose Manny in that situation.   As it turns out, the team played well without him for the rest of the regular season.   But we’ll always wonder if he could have made a difference in that KC series, if he’d managed to rehab and return to the field.     Some posters faulted him for not acceding to the team’s wishes.   Not me though.  
    • Win 3 Cy Youngs, 3 World Series and a WS game in 3 decades and you can be as arrogant as you want.   Palmer rules.
