Liz working on a no hitter.

Recommended Posts

Through six: 0H, 0R, 1BB, 10K, 1HBP. If he completes the no hitter, it'll be his second of this season.

And why are we penciling him in as a reliever? :D

Hes lucky ;) lol jk....u just beat me to the post...at least they wont say i jinxed it

I'm like Jim Palmer when it comes to no hitters and jinxes. Besides he's already got one to his name, in this season no less.

I hope we give him a good look in spring training next year. Might not be ready to skip AAA, but he'll be 24 by then and he ain't getting younger. Isn't he working on a third pitch this year? Sounds like it's working.

Make it 7IP with 12 K's. Still only one walk. All this is great, but the real reason I want to see him in Baltimore is because he has the coolest name. I'm guessing it's pronounced "Rad-ha-mes". I'm gonna name my kid that. Notice I used the genderless term for that; boy or girl, they're gonna be named Radhames.

I think everyone is pretty much over that conventional wisdom. He'll be a starter, and outings like tonight are the reason why.

I would've scored that an error but Liz just gave up a two run homer so it's a moot point now.

But, I'm sure the 'hit' call went to Liz' head, hence the two run bomb to the very next batter. Still, Liz' best effort of the season.

Ah well. Can't get one every time. Still an excellent start. Thanks for the update, I've just been waiting for the minor league page to refresh.

At least he now has 14 K's! Ridiculous!

Great start by Liz! It's been nice to seem him emerge as a top prospect this season. It'll be a luxury to have him waiting in AAA next season, in case an O's starter gets injured.

Walks and inability to consistenly go deep into games...He isn't exactly young for AA either.

He is on a great run since his last no hitter. I believe the walks are down noticeably.

Liz is not going to anyone's bullpen pitching like this in AA.

I guess going 6 innings (which he has done in 7 of his last 11 starts, and an out away from 8 of 11) isn't deep enough.

Of course I'm wrong though, since I don't agree with you.

    • Too many variables right now. Try to make it into May and see where we are.Virus does not care about data points. Could die down and come back in the fall or winter.Maybe we have a treatment that works in two months,at least on most people.Honestly more worried about small businesses and workers then baseball and rich owners.   Germany may try something we are looking at.But we really need to test and get back results in less then a week Send the people who had the virus and send them back into the workforce first since they are immune. Slowly get the economy going over time.
    • Baseball without fans is important to the nation’s psyche.
    • I don't think we can shutdown for 18 months.  I don't think baseball without fans is important to the economy.  I just see spectator sports as the very last thing that comes back.  
    • There's the atomic we've come to know... I was wondering if someone else was posting for you recently.
    • I was born into being an O's fan, but at the age of 8 in 1973 my family moved to Cleveland. So I was a Tribe fan (and O's) from 1973 until 1978 when we moved to NJ (then I dropped Cleveland and stayed with Baltimore). I was a big John Lowenstein fan when he was in Cleveland...and was thrilled when Brother Low ended up in Baltimore! 
    • It stinks not having a season to judge and scout these guys more....   Martin sure looked like a world beater last year, though he was scuffling a bit to start this year....    Agreed that Lacy's 3rd pitch is fairly non-existent and Hancock has a more complete arsenal.   Lacy showed better command this year and his slider was wipeout.   Yes, developing a 3rd pitch wouldn't hurt him.   Steve Carlton  and Ron Guidry were two of the greatest lefties ever and they did fine with the fastball/slider combo.  They had 3rd pitches but just as a "show-me" type pitch.   (Of course, those were some of the best sliders and fastballs ever!).   I agree our farm system has better pitching prospects than position prospects at the moment.   That is not a reason to not draft a pitcher.   Pitching wins Championships.   You need to do battle with the beastly lineups the Yankees, Red Sox and Blue Jays are going to trot out year after year.   Build a championship starting rotation, then add some positional talent.  Sign a couple of free agents if you have to.  Hitters and position players tend to be cheaper than starting pitchers anyway....   I think Hancock has the higher ceiling but Lacy has the higher floor.   Having watched them both, I'd pick Lacy.   Though I wouldn't be upset with Hancock.   Reid Detmers was lights out also...
