The Orioles have 4 straight 5+ inning starts for the first time all season


In the FIFTEEN previous season the Nats have been in Washington, the Nationals have only beaten the Orioles in the season series TWO times.

We would have to sweep them this weekend to prevent it from happening a third time in 16 years.

2006 3-3
2007  Nats 4-2
2008  3-3
2009  Orioles 4-2
2010  Orioles 4-2
2011   3-3
2012   Orioles 4-2
2013   Orioles 3-1
2014  Orioles 3-1
2015  Orioles 4-2
2016  Orioles 3-1

2017  2-2
2018  Nats 5-1
2019  2-2
2020 Orioles 4-2
2021  Nats 3-0 so far

Yeah, I had the same feeling about him.

    • I don’t quite understand the concern over Mayo’s size, and why some folks believe that will keep him from sticking at 3rd base. He’s listed at 6’5” / 215lbs. I believe that’s an inch taller and about ten pounds heavier than Cal Ripken Jr. was when he was a rookie at 3rd in 1982. Cal’s size never seemed an impediment to him defensively while he was at 3rd, and it certainly didn’t appear to hurt him when he moved to the more demanding position at SS.    Right now Austin Riley is playing pretty good 3rd base for the Braves, and he’s listed at 6’3” / 240lbs. If somebody his size can stick there for a World Series contender why can’t Mayo do the same for us? 
    • I think we can pretty safely rule out Baumann and Kjerstad here Honestly, I could see the case for Hall, Henderson or Westburg. Tony has had Henderson ahead of Westburg pretty much all year, so I'm going to eliminate Westburg. Game then becomes which hurts the guy more in Tony's eyes? Hall being injured for most of the year or Westburg's poor defense. If I could have only one of these guys in the system, I'd pick Hall because the upside is tantalizing and we really need starting pitching. I'm going to guess Tony feels the same, but I still have a strong hunch it's Henderson. Going with "Disabled List" Hall here.
    • Good write up. Looking forward to (hopefully) seeing him pitch in the big leagues in 2022. Back in the day the Orioles always broke their young starters in as long relief specialists, and I’m wondering if that might be the best role for G-Rod when he’s eventually promoted to the majors. Give him 50-60 pitches in a blowout once or twice a week. They would be low pressure innings where he could find his footing without having to worry about wins and losses. If I remember correctly that’s how Flanagan, McGregor, Boddicker, Ben McDonald, and maybe even Wayne Garland saw their first big league action. I’d certainly rather watch a kid like Rodriguez in that spot this coming season than a 29 or 30 year old journeyman who’s on his fifth team in six years.

    • Who is the Orioles 2021 #5 prospect?
    • https://www.orioleshangout.com/2021/10/27/colton-cowser/
    • Roch seems on board: “If the Orioles can implement their prospect plan at third base, Coby Mayo will be handling the hot corner and hitting long home runs for many years. “They can figure out how to occupy the middle infield with the batch of shortstops who crash their top 30 prospects lists, including Gunnar Henderson and Jordan Westburg among the first 10. Henderson could be the shortstop and Westburg the second baseman. They could reverse roles. “One of them could move over to third, but good luck trying to budge Mayo. “You can delay the fourth-rounder, but you can’t hold Mayo for long.” https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2021/10/who-starts-at-third-base-while-orioles-wait-for-mayo.html
