Konner Wade optioned after last night's game

Recommended Posts

Haven't heard the corresponding roster move yet.   Could it be tonight's starter that comes up?

A lot of sites are listing Ellis as our starter.   Fangraphs depth chart page projects Dean Kremer as our starter tonight.

Hyde said 'Mix-and-match bullpen game" today in his post game presser.  So we should definitely be the favorites against Ohtani.

I bet Ohtani goes deep 3 times tonight, and has 10+ K's.

Kremer just pitched in relief yesterday for Norfolk, so I doubt it's him.

Watch it be a bullpen game against Ohtani starting that breaks the losing streak. (probably not)

Rumor was they were going to bring back Gutierrez but needed another move to make room. Appears they wanted to get a few outs out of Wade before making the move on Gutierrez. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2021/08/orioles-dfa-maikel-franco-promote-jahmai-jones.html

Gutierrez was up last night.   He and Wade both played in the game.

Ellis vs Othani is almost not fair.

We may have to spot the Angels a few runs tonight to make it even.

Baseball is a such a weird game, watch this be the one we end up winning somehow! :D 

We look on digits like we literally have no chance.

It’s like the Verlander game a few years ago.  The Os were one of them biggest underdogs in years in that game and won.

Ah, shows how close I,'ve been paying attention. Must have been an extra move that even Roch/MLBTR missed.

Before last night, Richie Martin went down and Maikel Franco was DFA'd.   Jahmai Jones and Gutierrez came up.

After the game, Wade was sent down.

So we have a spot.   Someone is on their way from Norfolk now, we just don't know who it is yet.  Wonder if they are taking the bridge/tunnel and coming up the Eastern Shore or coming via Richmond/DC and hitting a lot of traffic?

    • I was a little disappointed that Junior Lara, who got a late start in the DSL but did well there, wasn’t invited to Instructs.   I still expect he’ll play in the FCL next year.   
    • How far is Bellinger from free agency?  It would be nice to get him to sign to an extension, but I don't see a reason for him to do so.  If he even partially rebounds, he would want a $100 mill deal. 
    • My wife and I decided to watch this HBO miniseries after it won several Emmys, including Kate Winslet for best actress in a limited series (7 episodes each about an hour).   It’s fantastic.   It’s about a police detective (the title character Mare) in a small, run down Pennsylvania town, where everyone knows everyone and half the people are related.  Mare has a lot of baggage of her own, slowly revealed as she tries to solve a murder that happens in the town.  Winslet is fantastic in the role, and the whole cast is great.  There are plot twists right to the end.  Highly recommend it.   
    • Hey Sportsfan; Thank you for the compliments.  So there are 3 DSL guys in Florida now. 17 year old Samuel Basallo received $1.3 million.  The biggest bonus of the Elias Era.  He was expected to sign with the Yankees.  He was very good batting .239/.338/.410 for a .748 OPS.  5 homers, 8 doubles.  Now in Instructional League.  Led Orioles 1 in homers and RBIs 17 year oldShortstop Maikol Hernandez received $1.2 million.  He hit .231/.340/.308 for a .647 OPS.  No homers, only 4 for 7 in steals. He is in the Instructional League so they still believe in him. 17 year old 3rd baseman Anderson De Los Santos received $350,00. He hit a robust..324/.409/.495 for a .905 OPS.  He also filled in at short, but made to many errors.  A little error prone at 3rd, but he's a converted shortstop.  Only 18 strikeouts in 127 at bats, 15 walks.  6 doubles, 2 triples, 3 homers, 3 for 4 steals.  Tremendous 1st year, now in the Instructructional League.   17 year old speedy centerfielder Junior Lara received $160,00.  Batted .344/.434/.500 in only 77 at bats.  So he missed half the season with an injury. 17 year old Rightfielder Wilmer Feliciano received $400,000.  He struggled with strikeouts and groudouts.  Hit .202/.312/.353 for a .665 OPS. Hit 4 doubles, 1 triple, 4 homers.  Also 3 for 3 in steals.  119 at bats, 45 strikeouts, 70% groundouts to 30% flyouts.  Terrible ratios for a big-time power hitter.  I would think his swing can be corrected. I was disappointed in Orioles 1.  13 and 39 overall.  With all those bonus babies, still a young team. Orioles 2 was a competitive team with modest bonus players.  25 wins 30 losses. Their most intriguing player was 18 year old Shortstop Frederick Benscome. He was a late Class of 2019 signee.  6 feet 160lbs left handed power from a shortstop. 142 at bats, 6 doubles,4 triples, 2 homers, 11 walks, only 18 strikeouts.  10 steals in 13 attempts. 60% flyouts to 40 % ground outs.  I would have thought he should be in Instructional League teaching others how to make contact and put the ball in the air !!!!
