Maybe he takes Hammel's next one and Hammel is pushed back to take Miguel's next start.

Why would Hammel take Gonzo's next start?

I think the idea is to not burn an option. If you send Arrieta down to make room for Britton but Britton bombs, you can't call up Arrieta to sit as the long man.

That's the plan.

But I hate that Arrieta is starting. He was getting lit up in AAA his last couple starts. His last 4 appearances he isn't striking anyone out. He's just awful. Looks like we're conceding tomorrow's game.

Hammel is questionable for Tuesday and Gonzalez is going on paternity leave.

    • He's also brought in a bunch of guys that are castoffs that didn't do much at all for the O's. I'd say it's been a pretty mixed bag.  Of course a couple hits go a long way when you are shifting through chaff.
    • Hyde shouldn't get it to begin with
    • Its funny because the pushed the wall back to oblivion and decided to build a left handed heavy team
    • Agreed, management couldn't care less about winning this year. I happen to think it's a BIG mistake. Nothing is guaranteed year from year. Players can regress, the chemistry might not be there, the division may be stronger, etc. Even with twice the payroll. I think he should at a minimum leave the team intact. Did they really accomplish that much with those trades? Anyway, this is just a fan speaking. They make the big bucks to make these decisions, right?  
    • Clearly Stowers for one, which is the one I was responding about from your prior post.  In his career he's hit lefties better than rights.  Of course most of that is minor league numbers as he's gotten very little chances in MLB unfortunately.   As to the others, when you are comparing them to Aguilar, does it really matter?  So far this year against lefties, Aguilar has a .562 OPS.  That really sucks.  Henderson is hitting .488 in the majors in very few opportunities (only 19 PA) and hit .502 in AAA.  So a bit worse.  Vavra, again SS, is hitting .661, against lefties, or over 100 points better than Aguilar.  Even Mullins, who is WAY worse against lefties this year than last, is still hitting .581 against them.  Point being Aguilar should not start at DH against lefties if Stowers, Vavra or Mullins are available, and I'd honestly rather see Henderson get the experience with a slightly worse OPS as that will pay off down the road I believe.  The only time Aguilar should reasonably start is to spell Mountcastle at first, and I'd personally rather see Stowers taking the spot if at all possible instead.  As to the other 'regulars' that should be on the bench, Odor is hitting .593 against lefties, so worse than Vavra (I know SS, but no other way to get a bit sample size than to let it happen). In the end I don't think that Odor or Aguilar should get another PA unless we have an injury of some sorts, a guy is banged up, or something unforeseen happens.  Let the kids play the rest of the way, and they should have been doing so a while ago.  
    • Losing 6 of the last 8 to Boston to lose the season series was the worst to me.  Another reminder that our division still owns us.  
    • Good list. You have to beat the teams you are supposed to beat.
