Because Jones was on the move and had to backhand it. Not a “routine” play, but again, one that needs to be made.

Yeah, I definitely thought he should have made that play. He really hurt us in that inning, and took away the no hitter.

I agree with the comment about Jones, although as I said before, I’m perfectly willing to give him his hacks at the big club, however I’m here today to say again that Scott will never be a part of a good club.
He’s too inconsistent. I’ve said this since he came up, he is completely 100% undependable. every single time you put him on the mound you don’t know what you’re going to get something terrible or something brilliant but you get the terrible enough that it spoils the Brilliant.

I don’t know if he’s arbitration eligible at the end of this season, but if he’s very expensive I would just as soon trade him away.

You have a problem with today's outing???  Because he walked ONE guy?  And an error was committed behind him.

Your standards are ridiculously high if you consider lack of perfection a problem.  The other team is full of the greatest hitters on earth.

He faces 5 batters.  Two of the most feared hitters in baseball struck out.  Two guys hit routine ground balls.  And yes, he walked one, on a full count.  I'd say he had a good outing.

I started to say something about Jones and then, said forget it. This team doesn’t care about defense as long as you hit, And it doesn’t care whether you hit or defend poorly as long as you’re young and have upside, And he doesn’t care if you’re old and don’t have upside as long as you’re cheap. That is a whole lot of nails in the coffin…

Hi Steve, how are you doing. Yes, I am very much stand behind everything I said. Today wasn’t one of his bad outings, today was actually not bad for him, but what does it say that today was not bad for him? Every single time you bring him into the game you don’t know what you’re going to get. And as I have said and as a casual glance at his record will reveal, is understandable. He’s not going to be a part of our next good team.

    • 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.
