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.

    • 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  
    • I wonder what the consensus on Baker will be if the Astros win.
