Was the no hitter worth it? (Means leaves game with shoulder fatigue)

Recommended Posts

Most innings and most pitches that Means ever threw in a game and he hasn't been the same since

Now he has left shoulder fatigue

Even as I watched the no hitter and pulled for him I imagined Hyde and Mean agent rooting for a hit so they could pull him and not risk the injury that seems to have happened.

For the record he went 6 IP, 0 ER his start after the No Hitter.

And 7 IP, 2 ER a couple starts later. Dead arm isn't a big deal and we are losing 90+ games no matter what so I'd say it was worth it even if there is some connection.

Whatever man.  

Since May 5, he's made 4 starts, equating to 24.1 innings, a 3.33 ERA, and 1.02 WHIP with 18 K's and 3 walks in that span.

Means is NOT the problem.

I don’t think the NH caused anything.

a major league pitcher SHOULD be able to throw 90-100 pitches every game. It is not to Hyde’s credit he insists on more than a guy can give, but Means wasn’t pushed in his NH and hasn’t been since then.

This happened in 2019 too, I don't see a reason to be worried yet. 

Orioles designate Dan Straily for assignment, place John Means on injured list

Quote

The 2019 Orioles season is such an un-fun disaster that even a roster move that could be enjoyed comes with one that must be suffered. So it is on Thursday afternoon, as the team announced that the struggling Dan Straily has been designated for assignment. However, because O’s fans can’t have nice things for long in 2019, bad news follows: John Means has been placed on the injured list, retroactive to June 17.

The Orioles announced the injury to Means as a left shoulder strain.

    • So, he doesn’t miss bats, he gives up homers, HR rate is high, his FIP and xFIP were in line with his ERA and he was overpaid.  His walk rate is good though. He isn’t good.     Now, all of that being said, in the last 2 full ML seasons, he has 58 starts.  He threw 180 Innings in 2021.  As was mentioned, he pitched 6 innings or more 18 times and only went less than 5 IP in 7 of his starts.   In 21 of his starts, he gave up 3 runs or less. Overall, he had 8 starts of 5 runs or more allowed. Btw, 2 of these games he came in as a reliever but pitched 6 and 7 innings, so I did include that in these “starter” Numbers”. Essentially, you have a guy who kept his team in the game for 75% of his appearances. That does have value on a team that has an awful staff and needs innings out of it. Is it an overpay?  Yes?  Does the money matter?  No.  If they had paid him what he’s worth, saying 3-4M, would that make anyone feel better?  Like, who cares about The extra few million? For 7 million bucks, I will take the same numbers he put up in 2021.     It’s not really a good signing but it’s they did spend some money and they did address the idea that they need innings out of their starter.  That’s about as much as we can hope for. 
    • I hate defending this team at times but if you are any of those pitchers would you come here or go to a team that can contend? 
    • Don’t the exact opposite of what? And your first paragraph is stuff that almost every team does and you don’t need to lose in purpose for several years in a row to accomplish that.
    • Would have preferred any of those other guts you listed: Bundy, Hill, Wacha or Kluber
    • Not that this move would excite anyone other than Lyles and his family/friends they have to spend some money.     I’m not saying spending $6M this year with a $1M buyout next year will flip the narrative about the Orioles but from an optics view alone they have to do something.  
    • What’s stopping them from making a move like Brault? This certainly should not. 
    • I'd guess that they will still sign someone like Brault in addition to the Lyle's signing.    I don't care for the signing, but if he can pitch to a shade over 5 ERA and 170-180 innings he'd be an ace in Baltimore.
