Matt Lindstrom Appreciation Thread


Catch 8

Recommended Posts

You were very crucial to the Orioles' early success and had come on of late (last appearance non-withstanding). Your performance dropped a bit after your injury, but you rebounded and deserve a lot of credit for our divine record with leads in late innings. You have a relatively unheralded role, but our bullpen is why we are still in this thing. As a capable power arm, I wish we could have kept you.

I think we traded the wrong guy. I think his stuff was much better than that of Ayala's, but the injury set him back. His inherited runners scored number is better, he throws harder and I would rather see him at any point in the game than Ayala. I don't know where people on other threads are getting he was disgruntled. Sounds like stirring the pot to me, he seemed like a class act all along. I went back back and watched the replay of the last HR he gave up when he left the mound, but he seemed upset with himself. I hope he does well with AZ.

Interesting fact that hadn't dawned on me when the trade was made, though it's obvious when you think about it.

Lindstrom couldn't have been traded unless he passed through waivers.

I could be wrong, but I think they probably did that earlier this month, when teams usually do it.

I don't know how he made it through.
