Injuries happen

The O’s had a .333 winning percentage when he played, and .333 when he didn’t play.    .337 when he started, and .329 when he didn’t start.    Basically, it was a non-factor.    Now, if they’d given Mountcastle his spot at some point, maybe that would have been different.    But I doubt it would have been very significant.   

Okay, we I guess if you're going to use "facts" and stuff then you can't make a compelling argument. 😁

One could make a compelling argument that had Chris Davis missed 105 more games due to injuries the O's would have a better won/loss record.  

Davis has been a beacon of health for us. The back breaker was his suspension in 2016. 2014 and 2012, were the only seasons where injuries really affected us.  Markais in 12’ and Machado in 14’. I guess you could say Tillman and Hardy in 16’.

Davis’ suspension was in 2014.    Was it really a back breaker?   He was hitting .196 at the time.

'14 was the  year of the next man up, Flaherty played very well for Machado, no he wasnt as good, but he was better than anybody could have hoped for. Ubaldo threw some of his better games when Tilly was down, and helped the team stay in the hunt.

Looking back on it, Flaherty did have a 1.000+ OPS in the ALCS vs KC.  It still would've been nice to have Davis around.  He wasn't the Davis is he is today.

On Ubaldo/Tillman, you’re mixing up 2014 and 2016.    Tillman missed no starts in 2014.    That was the season we only used 7 starters all year, one of whom was TJ McFarland who started the second game of a doubleheader for his only start.    The team was incredibly healthy that year, despite significant injuries to Wieters and Manny.

Thanks for the clarification.

I wonder if teams that primarily add from free agency (ex. Yankees) will always be older and thus be more injured. Should be interesting to see what happens this coming season with the big spenders.

    • MLB Pipeline did a Top 10 on their podcast this week, including shreds on I guess NCAA sophomores who like Kjerstad in February/March may have done stuff for a few weeks.  It also acquainted me with the demographics of the basket where 1-5 will be one of them. Pirates 1 - Lawlar the HS shortstop Rangers 2 - Kumar Tigers 3 - McClain, some Madrigal-sized middle infielder from UCLA, maybe/maybe not SS Red Sox 4 - del Castillo, some slugging catcher from "The U" deemed best hitter in draft Orioles 5 - Leiter (I'd be glad with this outcome for polish going towards 2022 usefulness) D'Backs 6 - Jake Hill, the LSU right-hander, non-Vanderbilt best of SEC rest.   Guessing Ben may know him some. Royals 7 - Jud Zabian, Florida OF    <mock now at 6 straight NCAA after the high school SS character who seems impossible to get to 1-5> <hosts say these Top 7 are a clear tier in whatever order they fall> Rockies 8 - Alex Vanellas, Louisville 3B Angels 9 - Marcelo Mayer, high school SS #2 Mets 10 - James Wood, IMG Academy high school OF <nary a high school pitcher in these 10, though with draft pushed back to July, the Nick Bitsko analogs born in 2003 will have some extra time to strut their stuff, in case the next Kerry Wood, Josh Beckett or Dylan Bundy can only Netflix and chill right now>    
    • I would dangle him to anyone whi would take him. I didn't want him back at any cost let alone 1.8M
    • He is so streaky that when he is in his funk he will be worse than the MIF we run out there.
    • https://halohangout.com/2020/07/13/angels-garrett-stallings-summer-camp/ An Angels fansite report when he later got to their 60 this summer cites a curve as the Junior year difference maker. Their source for that this campus story https://247sports.com/college/tennessee/Article/Tennessee-Vols-Baseball-Vols-Garrett-Stallings-selected-in-fifth-round-of-MLB-Draft-132589216/ also has the details he was their 2019 Friday night guy even with Crochet on the team. His Perfect Game blurb from high school times mentioned three-quarters to over the top arm angle, gee whiz. Who knows if he could have had Kevin Smith's 2019 in parallel universe 2020?   SEC trade imports links them, but Smith actually doing it including a little AA success is a big credit in his favor for the moment.
    • He fits the Smith/Kjerstad mold of SEC guys steadily improving (Growth Mindset?), even if some of that is demonstrated in small sample sizes.   Smith did backup his Junior Year rise up draft boards with his great 2019 for the Mets.  I am imagining entering Junior year Stallings was not a 5th or 25th round profile.   He's one more piece for the box of chocolates we'll get to open in the spring.
    • I wonder if he had a velocity spike his junior year and if that would make it less likely for him to have untapped velocity?
