Thought Trembley Wanted To Extend Pitchers?

Recommended Posts

89 pitches. Only 4 hits through 5 innings versus a very good Yankees lineup.

Result: Trembley yanks him. (I'm not buying the, "Its only the first game we don't want to overwork him" argument)

I gave Trembley the benefit of the doubt with Guthrie as Guthrie was squirming in and out of jams and looked to be tiring.

I gave Trembley the benefit of the doubt with Uehara because we had a big lead and Uehara was coming back from a hammy injury.

Who liked Trembley's move of yanking Simon when he did today?

Edit: And yes I posted this well before the floodgates open.. so don't think I'm second guessing here. I actually posted this when Bass struck out the 1st batter he faced.

Trembley has taken all three SP's out an inning sooner then I thought necessary. I"m theorizing here but could this be an attempt to skip Eaton on game 6? The starters have not been heavily worked and have plenty of days off.

Why not just throw Uehara out there Sunday? Apparently Guthrie is starting Saturday, I say keep the rotation intact for now.

Plus you don't have to put Easton on the 5 man right away thus delaying sending someone to AAA.

Note: Hunter just said the same thing as I was typing this during the Thursday MASN broadcast

I'm not sure why you aren't buying the "it's only the first game" explanation. Because that's the reason.

He pitched during Winter Ball... the guy wasn't tiring.. his pitches weren't all over the place. Where is the empirical proof that Simon needed to be yanked? This 100 pitch limit thing really pisses me off.

I understand the Bass argument as that makes sense... DT needs to see what he offers with Eaton knocking someone off the roster come Sunday... but I think we could have left Simon in one more batter... he surrenders a hit or walk.. okay... take him out... but that looked like a quick hook.

All five of our starting pitchers missed significant time in spring training, and probably aren't considered ready to go quite yet. That's why.

I believe Kranitz said something like he prefers his starters to get 25 IP in ST an none of them are near that. Guthrie was in the WBC, Uehara had his hammy boo-boo, Hendrickson had issues getting on the mound and wasn't groomed as a starter right away, and Simon and Eaton showed up late. Trembley may not say it outright, but he's not going to push any of them significantly past 90 pitches in their first starts.

Trembley also needs to evaluate who he's going to cut from the BP, and wants to see how they do in game situations.

Right now, Bass looks like the odd man out. As for stretching out pitchers. It may sound harsh, but Simon is fodder. We shouldn't care what happens to him as Bergesen could be recalled and take his place the next turn through. Leave him in and save the bullpen.

Trembley's got to let his starters, especially the fodder pitch their innings.

Uehara hasn't been a regular starter for a while and he's coming from a country where starters tend to start on 5 days rest, not 4.

There's absolutely, positively no way he is going to start on 3 days rest.

The Sunday starter will be Eaton. The only other possibility is someone from the bullpen. But I'm 95% certain it will be Eaton.

Guthrie and Uehara missed time in the spring so they're not fully stretched out and, remember, these Japanese guys are used to pitching on five days rest so that was probably another factor in the early exit last night. We have to judge as the season goes on but Trembley has stated in no uncertain terms that the starters will have to go longer this year.

    • A better order Better bring in a haul - Mullins, Hays, Means Some To little value; could gain much more value w/ good start to 2022 - Santander, Mancini, Sulser, Scott, Tate, Lyles Currently no value, but bc of age, service time, and/or potential to reach peak value, IF they were to perform WOULD have trade value - Fry, Lopez, Odor, Stewart    
    • I was shocked at first but did some research on the current market, and  1 year 7 million is spot on for Lyles to the O's
    • They have no current value, but this thread discusses potential to build value as well.
    • There was no real order
    • I do not want Green.  Just way too many strike outs, too many holes in the swing for me to be comfortable with.   
    • September/October2021 -- finally getting around to this. 11-20 record 6-14 vs. AL East 8-10 at home 3-10 on the road 5-7 in one-run games 1-4 in extra innings Batting 3.90 runs/game was 14th in the AL .237 BA was 12th .308 OBP was 10th .391 SLG was 12th .699 OPS was 12th 1.19 HR/G was 7th .225/.314/.398 with RISP (274 PA, 236 AB, 53 H, 94 TB, 86 TOB) Pitching 5.84 ERA was last in the AL 5.97 RA/G was last 1.77 HR/G was last 5.05 starter ERA was 12th 4.37 IP/start was 12th 6.63 bullpen ERA was last 7 saves was tied for 8th 17 save opportunities  10 blown saves  Defense 10 unearned runs was tied for 10th fewest in the AL 0.42 errors/game (13 errors) -0.7 fangraphs defense 1.3 UZR (+ 3.3 OF, +2.0 IF) -1 Rtot -3 Rdrs 0 OAA Cumulative through September/October 2021 Batting 4.07 runs/game was 14th in the AL .239 BA was 10th .304 OBP was 12th .402 SLG was 11th .705 OPS was 12th 1.20 HR/G was 10th .232/.311/.353 with RISP (1437 PA,  1241 AB, 288 H, 438 TB, 445 TOB)(.664 OPS with RISP was last in the AL) Pitching 5.84 ERA was last in the AL 5.90 RA/G was last 1.59 HR/G was last 5.99 starter ERA was last 4.54 IP/start was last 5.70 bullpen ERA was last  26 saves was last 54 save opportunities was 13th 28 blown saves was tied for 2nd most Defense 46 unearned runs was fewest in the AL  0.46 errors/game (74 errors) was 3rd fewest 0.1 fangraphs defense was 8th in AL -3.9 UZR was 10th  (-4.4 OF, +0.5 IF) -46 Rtot was 14th - 30 Rdrs was 12th -16 OAA Conclusion:  The offense was pretty much its usual well below average self in September/October, and while the hitting with RISP was a little better than it was on the season as a whole (.712 OPS vs. .664), somehow the team still was 14th in runs per game despite doing better than that in BA, OBP, SLG and OPS (all in the 10th-12th range).   Not epically bad, just regular bad.   The starting pitching also was only regular bad, and better than its usual epically awful, posting a 5.05 ERA in September/October compared to 5.99 on the season.   But the bullpen really carried the team to the no. 1 draft pick, posting a 6.63 ERA for the month and blowing 10 of 17 save opportunities.   Think about that -- 17 save opportunities in one month is a lot!   But the pen blew more than half of them.   The pen was epically bad this season, and even more horrible in September/October.   Finally, the defense was sort of middling in the final month, both by standard and advanced metrics.   It's interesting that on the year, the O's allowed the fewest unearned runs of any team in the league, and the 3rd fewest errors, and yet, Rdrs had them at -46 runs, Rtot said -30, and OAA said -16.    All in all, there's a ton of work to do in all areas for 2022.   The pitching in particular just has to get better.   And I think it will, because it pretty much cannot get worse, either for the starters (5.99 ERA for the year while covering only 4.54 IP per start) or the bullpen (5.70 ERA and a 48% save rate).    But how much better is the key to how significantly our team will improve in 2021.
