O's the club on 30 Clubs in 30 Days tomorrow night, 3/6!


Recommended Posts

I was flipping around online and noticed that tomorrow night's segment of "30 Clubs in 30 Days" on MLB Network will be the O's!

Looking forward to seeing it, even though it will not be a whole show, but interwoven with the "MLB Tonight" show.

Actually they're doing this with every team this year. All the 30 for 30's are interwoven with MLB tonight.

That's what I've noticed, too. While it sucks to not have a full episode for each team, I guess there is only so much you can go over for a team and the hour long episodes in the previous seasons may have been a little too long for some clubs.

Pretty cool. Billy Ripken picked us for first in the AL East (he couldn't be biased somehow could he?), but Al Leiter had us "contending for a playoff spot, over .500" and Sean Casey said we'd be second in the AL East and win a wildcard. All the hosts scoffed at the BP projection of 76 wins.

Sean Casey has some great things to say about the attitudes of the players buying into Buck's assertions that they are a winning ballclub. Nice interviews with Machado and Chris Davis too.

I think they are all seeing the problems with the Yankees and Boston and the fact Tampa doesnt hit. Toronto has to prove they are a complete team. Why cant we compete for a wildcard once more?

Absolutely we can, and probably will. There is no clear favorite and any of the five teams could take the title.

For those that missed it (like me...) thankfully MLB.com put what I assume is most of the content up in their video section.

These three national media members (Billy Ripken, Al Leiter and Sean Casey, all ex-players) all love the O's. It seems like the jocks love the O's and the nerds (minus The Baseball Tonight nerds who love Buck) hate the O's. interesting. Hopefully the jocks are right. Here's the clip:

I saw this last night. Billy was surprisingly optimistic (when he's usually pretty cautious in his observations of his old team, kinda like Cal was during the ALDS last year). He actually picked the O's to win the division. Sean Casey is always looking for votes to maintain his Mayor of MLB status, so he's usually pretty complimentary of the team he's visiting. He's definitely a glass-half-full kinda guy.

Al Leiter wanted to be a wet blanket so badly, but didn't want to be the only one. He gave a pretty non-descript prediction that we'd be "back in the hunt", but you could tell it was half-hearted. I think he's as skeptical of our rotation as anyone else.

Still though, it was more positive than previous years.

    • He is on the 40 man roster as of today. 40-Man Roster | Baltimore Orioles https://www.mlb.com/orioles/roster/40-man
    • We just live in an instant gratification society nowadays so it's not that surprising. The Orioles have won two or three while Holliday takes his lumps so that's the good thing and last night, no matter what he did at the plate they were losing that one. Pitchers are really coming at him with their best stuff and I haven't seen him swing through many hittable pitches. Saying all that, the amount of pure whiff so far has been surprising for sure. Through his first three games he has a 59.1% WHIFF rate and part of that might be the pure amount of pitches he's seen with only six pure fastballs. Welcome to the big league kid. They know who you are, they have your scouting report and statcast data from the major leagues, and they're going to pitch you like a super star until you make the adjustments and become one. Not the start anyone thought he'd have and he probably needs to sit against Hall today since he's typically tough on lefties. He'll get there. It just may take a little more time than we had hoped.
    • 4/18  3 innings 4/23. 5 innings 4/28 replaced by Means and back to the bullpen. 🙂
    • From Roch yesterday: “Manager Brandon Hyde said reliever Yohan Ramírez, acquired from the Mets yesterday for cash considerations, should report to the team within the next few days. “The Orioles will need to make a corresponding move on the 26-man roster.” That certainly doesn’t sound like they’re going to try putting him through waivers right now.  
    • I went to the game as part of a fundraiser for my daughter's school, so I was happy to go.  But it was not fun to watch.  But I need to know from others if it seemed like the Brewers were being a little showboaty or sort of in your face-ish.  One instance in particular makes me ask, before the benches cleared, was in maybe the 4th or 5th inning, the Brewers struck out an Oriole batter on a close pitch with the batter sort of standing stunned in the box when their catcher pops up, bounded a couple leaps in the air (edit - toward his bench) and hurled the ball into the upper deck.  The batter was still in the box.  It all happened fast, but I was kind of stunned.  I haven't seen anything like that. I'm sorry on not having better details our seats were in 81 under cover with no vantage point of the Jumbotron. lol  and other than the phone I had trouble following who was up or any other info about the game in the midst of my daughter talking my ear off the whole time which was, admittedly, the whole reason for going to the game in the first place.  Good night out, terrible game.
    • I’m unclear how the plan to stretch him out would work. 
    • All you say/propose could be correct. But I struggle to see the problem/issue. All players at the professional level are independent contractors at the end of the day. Yes, they want to win and are hyper competitive, but they also want to get paid. He is one year away from receiving generational transforming money and he knows that his performance will determine that. When it comes to him viewing the Orioles as an oasis in a desert, why would he do that? He’s coming from a winning/successful organization and going to another. The Orioles have not done anything on the field (during his tenure as a pro) that is any better than the Brewers. We HOPE that they get there, but they have a long way to go.
