 Hays steals and scores on a single......wow.  

Nate Mclouth used to do that. Not a lot, but often enough that it was always a possibility once he got on base.

Luckily our pitchers like to keep it interesting.

I’ve been working, and I’m just now having a chance to tune in, but I wanted to come here and see how the game was going before I opened the MLB app and checked the bad news. I hope it’s not that bad. I am rather fond of Mr. Watkins and would like him to continue to be a feel-good story for a little while longer.

And now I have checked… Oh well. We’ve had worse guys on the mound this season

Just give him a couple more starts and he’ll be in the same category.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that they'll probably have someone worse on the mound tonight.

I’m laughing, but inside I’m crying.

Are you on a VPN? Or on a WiFi that may be? If so turn it off 

I'm on my home network on the WiFi watching on The MLB.tv app for the TV.  I've never had a problem until today.

    • 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.

    • 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
