8/12 vs Oakland-Pie sighting!

Recommended Posts

Yesterday he forgot how many outs there were, and his excuse was that it was the first time in his career that he had done that. 18 hours later he forgets the count and almost ends another inning from 2nd base.

He needs to come out of the game, doubles and all.

I like the lineup too, but wow......Rajai Davis took a HUGE lead on that steal, no shot to catch him. Berken should have done something there.

And now Jones with a ball he took a bad read on and a blooper falls in. 1st and 3rd one out against a miserable Oakland lineup. Not good.

Their lineup might not have the names as the Yankees, but they are the 3rd best hitting team since the All-Star break. Hitting at a .289 clip and scoring nearly 6 runs a game. So they're a hot hitting team.

Landon Powell just hit a monster shot out to Eutaw street. 3-0 A's, our offense once again is garbage. It would be ever so nice for some of our stars to earn their paycheck.

And now a throwing error for a possible manufactured run. Bunt singe, steals second, and now moves to third with one out on Wieters throwing the ball into the outfield.

4-0 A's on clutch hitting and good situational play.

I wonder if they ever watch their own games to see the mistakes they make? DT must do this immediately.

The A's are an example of youth plus good hitting plus fundamentals. Isn't this the model of a team we are supposed to be building?

    • Well this to me explains it. Some seriously low OBP's on this team. 
    • I hate it too…but I think Stroman could be an exception to the rule because of how he pitches. I worry less about him wearing down vs a power arm. But we aren’t going to sign the perfect player.  FA doesn’t allow for that.  At some point, risks have to be taken.  It’s just a matter of mitigating the risks as much as possible.
    • I listen to a few podcasts and I think the O's have gone to great lengths to teach good swing decisions. Swinging at a low/away slider on the first pitch of an AB might be a bad swing decision in their eyes even if it's a strike. That approach will lead to better contact, but also deeper counts and thus more k's and walks. I think we view the k rate as the tradeoff to better contact when we actually swing, so I would expect it to be relatively high. 
    • It is strange. Cedric is only 19th in the AL in runs scored (but just 3 runs behind number 13). Even more surprising: Cedric leads the league with 99 hits with no outs, 10 more than Altuve, who's in second place. You would think lots of no-out hits would lead to lots of runs, but it obviously depends on the guys batting after you, I wouldn't look so much at the OBP of hitters after Cedric since getting on base without a hit usually won't drive a runner in. I would guess that their BAs and SLGs are more important. The Orioles' 2 through 5 hitters have been really bad in both slugging and batting average:  Batting second: .217 in BA (15th in the AL), .403 in slugging (9th in the AL) Batting third: .253 (9th), .419 (11th) Batting fourth: .242 (12th), .422 (13th) Batting fifth: 12th (.228), .385 (13th) The Orioles' second through fifth hitters rank 8th, 12th, 14th and 12th in the AL in RBIs. That seems to fit Cedric's surprisingly low runs-scored total: the guys following him haven't been very good at driving in Cedric, each other or anyone else.  Cedric's low RBI total doesn't surprise me when you look at how bad the hitters before Cedric -- that is, the bottom of the batting order -- have been at getting on base and giving him RBI opportunities. Batting seventh: .283 in OBP (13th in the AL) Batting eighth: .244 in OBP (15th, last by 23 points) Batting ninth: .283 in OBP (13th) Something I didn't really expect when I looked at these numbers: they remind me that, other than Cedric, Mountcastle among rookies (though he shouldn't qualify, IMO), and maybe Hays, the Orioles' offense has been really bad compared to the rest of the league. Expecting a year of growth and the advent of Rutschman to lead to a large upgrade next year is delusional.    
    • I wish Stroman could be had for 3 years, but I'm sure 4 is more likely.  I just don't think that long-term contracts for free agent pitchers in their 30's is a great way to go.  I would hate to see another Cobb situation for the Orioles.
