Not pitchers who are AAAA or 29 year olds making their mlb debuts to evaluate. Or pitchers with era over 7. How about bring up a prospect before they are 26. Evaluate those pitchers. 

Do you agree that there's a difference in what Hyde does and what the front office does?

Yeah, I just don't really care.  Frobby just posted they gave up 981 in 2019.  19 runs doesn't make a big difference, it just makes for a big shiny number.

No one would make a note of a difference between 962 runs and 981 runs.  There's hardly a difference between 981 and 1000.

After three well-pitched games with the Phillies, the O’s staff has allowed 901 runs.   So, 10 games remaining and they’d need to allow 99 runs to reach 1000.    Not likely, but you can never count this staff out.

If the Rangers stay true to form (lowest run total in AL, 581--244 runs less than the Astros), the 4 games against them should help balance out whatever extraordinary damage is wreaked during the 6 games against the AL's third and fourth highest-scoring teams, the Jays and Red Sox (both at 794, with the Red Sox having played one more game than the Jays and Rangers).

My bet would be that they don't even match the 2019 team's level of runs-against. That would require them to exceed an average of 8.1 runs per game, when even their abysmal average so far has been 5.93. Of course, averages can't predict what will happen in the small sample size of 10 games, and the Sox and Jays are playing to maintain wild card slots, so who knows....

With the shutout of the Rangers (note that they started the Philly series with one as well), the Orioles runs-against is holding steady at 901. To reach 1,000, would need to average 11 RA/G the remaining 9 games. To reach 2019's 981, 8.9 RA/G.

    • There seemed to be a trend away from giving large contract to players over 30 in the past 5 years.   But not this year.
    • I wish I knew more about how much each side is willing to dig in. My assumption is that the owners aren't going to go for a payroll floor, and that the players aren't going to fight to the death for it. I think the players hold firm on the service clock issue, and that it will be changed. I guess the issue players care most about is being paid earlier in their careers, and I think that's not without merit. My hope is that instead of sweeping changes that the owners will resist, they tweak something a little more familiar to the existing system, like making players arbitration eligible quicker. These CBA negotiations are important inflection points that help keep MLB on the right path by giving equal power to the players and owners. They become toxic when the leaders of one or both sides go on a power grab. As much as it looks like both sides are digging in, I'm not seeing either side going on one of those power grabs here, which is encouraging. That doesn't mean this won't take some time. And it might well affect the 2022 Orioles roster. It appears our shopping list is a SS/3B on a short term deal, a veteran SP, and a backup catcher. While a shortened offseason is unlikely to meaningfully harm those pursuits since we're essentially dumpster diving (not pursuing free agents on long term deals), it could help us land a player on a short deal who is a victim to a last second musical chairs scramble. And I'm guessing the upcoming deadline will result in a few deals being made and a flurry of signings. It could be argued that if the O's are going to move Mullins or Means, it becomes much less likely after Tuesday. I'm speculating like mad here. Logic would suggest that the will to compromise will be great given the financial disaster of the 2020 season and the optics of a lockout during a pandemic. 
    • Did you read my thread on payroll ups and downs?  Overall, payrolls are down about $15 mm in the last five years.   That’s what they have to complain about.  
    • He had multiple arm injuries and was held to under 80 IP.  Maybe the combo of the injuries and a small sample size led to this. Interesting name to consider but you figure he signs a pillow contract with a better team and in a better park than OPACY.
    • It’s definitely a ton of money, just saying it’s not the same as it used to be.     These salaries are all relative.  The TV signed within the last few years is the richest ever for the sport.  The money is just pouring in and Toronto has a lot of cheap talent that allows them to spend like this. I wouldn’t have given KG this contract but I understand why they did.  
    • Maybe. But he’s gonna shove it up our ass for the next 5 years, bank on that. 
    • I look at all these long term contracts being given out and I wonder what the players are complaining about.  Players around 30 (give or take a couple of years)  sign 4 to 7 year contracts for big money.  Franco getting an 11 year contract in his earlier 20s. If I am the players I don't want anything they would disrupt the distribution of the cash flow.
