So was Hays throw that almost got Wendle at 3rd base a couple of innings ago as awesome as the radio announcers said it was?  Or are they just so desperate for any positive that they got carried away with their excitement?

It was pretty cool. Sounds like they oversold it a little

He's arbitration eligible this off-season, right?  Not sure it's worth it to tender him.

If you think he bounces back and you can flip him at the trade deadline then yeah give him an offer.  

Honestly though I would just let him go.

I’m not saying this to get a laugh but I think Fry is better than this. This is an awful funk.

I could see the Orioles try and figure out a one year deal with him.

I must say I really hate modern baseball with the four five six pitchers per game each team.  I hate seeing that crap.  I remember Tippy Martinez where they would let him pitch three innings or more sometimes.

Sure he's better than this.

Almost anyone that can find their way on a 40 man roster is better than this.

Is Fry good enough to be worth bringing back?

 

It's pretty clear that if an offer was on the table at the deadline he should have been traded.

Sometimes Hyde lets the starter go three innings or more.

He went 7 in relief once.   And I think he gave up one hit.   And the Orioles came from behind to win.

Outside of Means, I don't know if any other Orioles starters have gone 7 innings this year. I want to say maybe Harvey or Zimmerman.

If he agrees to your price he is good enough. If Orioles let him go he is guaranteed to get better deal?  Point being offer him similar money to this year with bonuses.

    • Imposter syndrome basically means you don't feel like you belong.
    • We should probably sign a catcher huh?
    • Part of the reason why we've seen the slashing style play go away is the astroturf fields from cookie cutter stadiums and domes are all gone. The Cardinals, Astros and Royals among other teams took advantage of their home field's playing surface. That meant hitters put the ball in play to take advantage of the bounciness of astroturf, and stealing more bases because the turf gave runners an advantage. Plus you saw teams valuing speed and athleticism over bigger players that swung for the fences. I liked seeing a mix in the styles of play between different franchises, whereas today pretty much all teams play the same style swinging for the fences.  
    • Even though the 60'6" has remained the same since 1893, the distance between the average of pitchers' release points and home plate has decreased because pitchers have gotten, on average, taller and longer-limbed. And the decrease over the past, say, 50 years has been significant. (For the same reason, there's also been an effective increase in the height of the mound.) I've seen some estimates, but I can't recall them right now. Nonetheless, I think it's more likely that the effort to produce the same effect will be made by increasing the number of pitches thrown by a pitcher, for example by limiting the number of pitchers used in a game or the number of pitchers on the 26-man roster. Other sports have been much more willing to change basic rules to improve the game: pro football has moved the goalposts, changed the extra-point and kickoff rules, added overtime, and protected quarterbacks and receivers. Basketball introduced the 3-point field goal, widened the lanes and banned zone defenses. Leagues in other sports haven't held their rules as sacrosanct as MLB. It's not practical for them to change the size of their standardized playing surfaces. There have been some suggestions to raise the baskets, and there's been some experimentation with that. At least some of those showed a drop in outside shooting accuracy and an increase in rebounding and the proportion of scoring by big guys -- not the desired effect.
    • Or they need to run it again in 2 weeks!  Lol
    • https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2021/11/marlins-attempting-to-trade-jorge-alfaro.html Jorge Alfaro would be a good option.
    • They’re certainly both culpable. I just feel so bad for hitters, though. Their eyes are magnets for little specs of dirt floating around right before the pitch.
