Chris Heston throws no-no


Redskins Rick

Recommended Posts

I'm not a Giants fan, but I'm not a hater either. I only caught the ninth inning last night and watching it bugged me on so many levels:

1) That was the worst strike zone I've EVER seen. By worst I mean largest. But it was consistent.

2) The other pitcher must really not be any good- given that strike zone I could have thrown a no hitter.

3) I heard giants fans arguing whether it was better to have all those no hitters or the the world series rings. :bangwall: (That emoji works. But I wish we had the smiley face hanging himself- I'd use that one here).

4) As Rick said, WHO??

5) Why does this happen so much to the Giants???

6) Why can't the O's get this lucky? I'll still take Gausman over Dr. Zaius or Moses any day (oops, wrong Heston).

Can't wait for Gausman and Bundy. And Wright. Just a matter time- I hear them all knocking loudly today.

    • Well said he only bats lead off once. The lead off Home Runs are partially a product of him batting with nobody on base( pitchers more inclined to challenge) If they adjust the OBP will go up and so will the steals. As far as a fifth AB who else would you want up, plus whoever is PH for our # 8 or 9 has Gunner in front of them.  
    • I would do both. Adley is 25 and looks like a Buster Posey kind of trajectory/career type. Obviously, by the back end of that deal (last 2-3 years) he will probably not be doing as much/the bulk of the catching (especially on a 10 year deal), to retain faces of your franchise/potential Hall of Fame players (at least Orioles hall of Famers), and maybe guys who one day get a statue out at the stadium is worth it to me. Especially considering how long it’s been since we had ANY. Ripken is the last one (over 20 years ago).  Gunnar is a no brainer IMO! He is 22 and already one of the best players in the sport. He may someday go down as the greatest player to ever wear an Orioles jersey. It is imperative IMO that you never let him walk out of the door (especially in his prime). IMO that would be franchise malpractice. It is extremely unlikely that you could find a player to replace him (be anywhere close to as good). He may be on pace for the greatest Orioles offensive season ever AND he’s only 22!
    • Mullins would be perfect for this if he would hit to his career average. Once Holliday comes up, start him and Mullins 8-9. Once Holliday hits, he can be the leadoff hitter of the future with Adley and Gunnar 2-3.  A 9-1-2 of Mullins-Holliday-Gunnar would be pretty nice.  I agree, Gunnar has to be 1 or 2. Every spot you move him down reduces his predicted AB's by 11% and we don't want that. Better to have him hit more times even if it costs a few base runners than more baserunners/fewer ABs.
    • Really well said and agree on all.  I too noticed the right leg almost always going to first base as he overswung (really I noticed it his first spring training game) compared to striding more straight towards the pitcher. 
    • Since May 1 I have him 16 for 64.   .250.
    • If every major sport can have reply for impactful calls, then baseball needs to follow suit ASAP.  Yes, we can reply certain things in mlb, but the technology is there and it is being used in the minors with great success for strikes/balls. It makes 0 sense to keep letting awful calls by the umpire impact the outcome of games.
    • Now back to Gunnar, Gunnar is in the midst of most likely the greatest individual season in Orioles history. And we have 21/22 pages on him and what 80 on Holliday?
