Busy night for Orioles' pitchers in last night's Solar Sox game, covering 8 of the 9 innings:
Loeprich 3.0 IP, 3 R, 5 H, 3 ER, 1 BB, 2 K's started the game and took the loss.
Bishop 1.2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 ER, 3 BB, 2 K's relieved Loeprich
Gillaspie 2.1 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K's relieved Bishop with the bases loaded in the fifth, escaped the jam on a strikeout and struck out 5 of the 7 batters he faced.
Vespi 1.0 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 K's pitched the 9.
Yusniel Diaz went 0 for 3 with a walk, as the other O's hitters had the night off.
70 wins would be an 18 win improvement. We’ll be better next year but that is an awfully big jump especially if we’re only adding AR and GR on June 1. Likely subtracting on July 31. Our big FA signing is likely to be Galvis. It would be a big improvement to win 62. I’m excited about 2023, but I don’t think we see W/L change till then. 2022 will be much of the same as this year.
I think we’re going to pick like 1, 33, and 40, with the 1st rd pick, the comp a pick, and then the 2nd rd pick. With this draft pool and Elias’ affinity for going bat heavy, we are going to be absolutely loaded post this draft position player wise.
