Chris Tillman for the AAA-Tides 6/1

C'mon...it's 2.2 IP...not 2.67.

No, it's 2.67. 2/3 of an inning is .66 or.667 or .67.

.2 is 2/10 of an inning, which does not exist.

If the boxscores want to display .1 or .2, they can ........ but it's wrong.

It's not a base 10 system, it's base three. You know, like binary is base one and programing languages use hexadecimal, which is base 16.

As far as I know there has never been a math system invented just for baseball but it wouldn't surprise me if Drungo develops one.

I got your PM. Thanks, it's OK though. I'm actually glad that you pointed it out, because now I know that writing it as .1 or .2 could still technically be correct. :) I always thought that it was just lazy sportswriters that didn't want to bother writing it correctly.

48 strikes, 47 balls? Ugh.

Yeah, that's awful, especially against AAA talent. Honestly, I think Tillman is AAA talent at this point though too. I suppose if he regains his velocity and can learn how to throw strikes he could still be a #3/4 starter. But the odds of that happening decrease in my mind with every poor start like this. The guy has a razor thin margin of error right now.

Barring an injury, do you think he'll be back up before September?? I know a lot of people probably think it's a given but I think he'll have to show something to Buck, Conners, etc before he gets recalled.

.

I saw Tillman pitched tonight. I felt that there were 4 "games within a game" for him tonight:

A. He looked very good for the first 3 and 2/3 innings.

B. With 2 outs and a runner on first base in the 4th inning, Tillman was coasting. Then he walked a batter on four pitches. Then he walked the next batter as well. Then he gave up a 2-run single. Fortunately, he got the final batter of the inning on one pitch.

C. After the bad 1/3 of an inning in the 4th, Tillman looked very good again in the 5th with a 10-pitch inning.

D. In the 6th inning, he reverted back to the way that he was pitching in the final 1/3 of an inning in the 4th. With one out, he walked 2 more batters, gave up a single in between, and then he was tagged for a 2-run double, which ended his day. Fortunately, Chris George came in to get the last 2 outs of the inning with runners on 2nd and 3rd and only one out to prevent any further damage.

Other than that, Chris had his usual huge breaking ball working well for him. Overall though, it was a disappointing outing after a very promising start.

    • Yeah, basically this, that Westburg's underlying numbers (EV, barrel %, xwOBA) seem to point at this being pretty real, or at least that there's nothing 'undeserved / lucky' about this hot streak, if it's just that. 
    • The problem with a Cowser/Kjerstad/Stowers/Bradfield outfield roster is there are no right handers to handle LHP. I don't think and completely left handed outfield is the destination for an organization the values versatility.
    • Looks maybe concussion related. 
    • How can you not be romantic about baseball? This seems slightly poetic. I enjoyed reading, and correlated your experience in the stands back to what I watch in Game 1 on MASN.  It was also pretty cool to hear Jim Palmer give you a shout out in Game 2 of the series on Live TV.
    • I am not worried.  It just doesn’t remotely meet the eye test.  He has been great in the field . I can think of at least 3 outstanding plays he has made and not any that I thought he should have gotten but didn’t. Meanwhile Holliday is 3 OAA and I can’t think of an outstanding play and can think of a number I thought he should have made. 
    • Nicely stated Roy. Every since I was 9 years old and saw the O's vs. the Tokyo Giants in Tokyo in 1971, I've been infected with the Orange/Black virus. There is no cure and I don't want one. You and I sat at the lunch table with Jim Palmer at the 1970 World Series Champs reunion, and its still one of my enduring baseball memories. You said I looked like Carlton Fisk! I was at all 3 games in this Angels series, right behind the O's dugout. I got to see all our boys, and just simply love to watch this team play. And in true baseball fashion, the one game on paper we should have dominated (GRod vs. 8+ ERA Channing), we end up down 7-0 and lose. But watching Gunnar's homers, his electric triple, and he made a fantastic play today on a ball that went under Westburg's glove, Adley do Adley things, Cowser, holy crap. Kimbrel v. Trout with bases loaded, bottom of 9th, 2 outs, down by 2? That was fun. Next game Trout bats leadoff and torches a GRod fastball for a homer to the opposite field.  An observation.... If you didn't know anything about the team, and you only watched game 1 batting practice, you'd think Cowser and O'Hearn were the studs of the team. Mountcastle was taking BP with the reserves and he put on a show as well.  Home after 3 straight days watching this O's team, so jealous of the Balt fans in Balt that get to see the team with regularity. It's a special bunch.
