Jim Johnson is going to end up as the best reliever in Oriole history if he keeps his uniform on. Is that even a bold prediction at this point?

Gregg Olson had 160 saves and a 176 ERA+ in an Oriole uniform.

JJ has 73 saves and a 139 ERA+. I'd have a hard time seeing JJ as better even if he ends up accumulating more than 160 saves as an Oriole, which is possible.

He threw some really nice pitches, including 2 great back to back changeups to Mauer. Unfortunately, he seemed to lose the feel for his fastball right after that. He had to get 4 outs but the walk killed him and us.

It seemed that the late called time out killed him.

    • Mekari down, if he is out we are screwed.
    • It’s one way to go, for sure an interesting one. Henderson has acclimated quickly. To assume that Ortiz and Westburg can adjust quickly is certainly a gamble. I believe they both should become everyday players, but I think easing them in at first to be a better strategy if we want to make a playoff run in 2023. If Henderson is the everyday SS, I believe he’ll wear down some at SS and hurt his production. Less wear and tear at 3B, which will keep his bat in the lineup more. A great athlete, and he’ll get bigger, I wonder if he’ll slow down some as he fills out. Maybe a concern when it comes and he plays SS until then. I had read of concern about his consistency at SS, but I don’t see much of an issue so far. The two errors at 2B notwithstanding. He’s a stud. If you want to put him at SS and trade Mateo, fine, assuming there’s a suitor with a good return. It has to be a very good return.  I am good with then having Ortiz at 2B over Urias, who is much better at 3B. We’ll see how committed to winning Elias is in 2023, and which prospects he prefers to stay and play which positions. 
    • O's going with the most lefty heavy lineup all season vs Javier. Nice first inning for the Vothinator!
