Seriously, he's horrible. I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt, but that's all used up. He's possibly worse than Regan and Miller as in-game managers. I honestly don't care if Mazzone goes if he goes at this point. He's gotta be on a short short short leash.

That's true.

I bet we could get Ray Miller back.

This is how I feel. I gave him the benefit of the doubt but that is gone now. He needs to go.

Agree 100%. It's a simple principle that all baseball fans can agree on. If you have an arm that appears to be "on" pitching, you don't take them out unnecessarily. It seems Perlozzo wants to use like all of these guys every single day which just does not work. You go through 8 pitchers and you're bound to find the one that doesn't have his best stuff today. I thought every reliever that pitched today should have gone out for at least a second inning. Instead, we're down to Birkins and Guthrie, who I'm not even sure would be okay to pitch again, because Perlozzo has no idea what he's doing.

Unbelievable stupidity. I'm almost willing to give up on my hopes for a sabermetric manager entirely and can forgive idiotic sacrifice bunting and all that if we can just find someone who can do one thing right, specifically bullpen management. We have a great bullpen, clearly one of the best in the league, and Perlozzo showed you exactly how not to use it tonight. Just use one or two guys a night and let them pitch multiple innings!

You can't write it much more clearly than that. It just cracks me up to watch the opposing managers load up on their lefties out of the pen. Torre used that underhand lefty for like 6000 innings this weekend. Ledezma pitched what 5 or 6 innings in 3 games. I really don't believe our FO is stupid so they have to realize what is going on. Yes, Hernandez and Payton will help with this situation, but why in the world would we not want to utilize the big RH hitters down on the farm? Amazing, simply amazing

This is their mantra. They will keep saying this over and over again.

Nice take. I hope the press corps grills him on that. I'd like to hear the excuse and/or reasoning. That has got to go down as one of the worst managing jobs in history.

If Birkins were successful, would he have been the first of our relievers in the game to pitch more than 2 innings? Yes, the AAA call up. It must have been lonely out there in the bullpen by the end of the game being that there were only coaches and Guthrie left.

    • Johnson, McDermott, and Povich, could all be big time arms for us out of the pen at various points of the season. Power arms. 
    • 1. Banks is alone in thinking Holliday isn't a SS.  All evaluators seem to believe he'll be at least ML average. 2. To Banks credit the arm and getting caught on in between hops is something he pointed out and has been agreed with by some so called   "experts". 3. There is only Keith Law who seems to think that Holliday is better than Henderson right now. 4. It's hard to know the total lowdown with so many different opinions.  The majority seem to believe that Holliday is not as good as Henderson now but good enough to play an average ML SS with a chance to be plus in time. 5. Everything is open to one's own interpretation but mine is that Henderson's next 5 years will be at SS and Holliday's next 5 will be at 2B and Elias and Hyde believe that's the best alignment for the team.
    • I think you are putting too much emphasis on one position and ignoring others, which I believe is the real disconnect.     SS is certainly male important but not at the detriment of the rest of the IF.
    • I think I'm the only one who doesn't care where he ends up in the field.  Speaking strictly for myself, I find the endless debate on here about what side of second base he stands on to be borderline insufferable.  Whatever happens, happens...and it's not like the Orioles don't have good options for wherever Holliday doesn't end up standing in the field, either.  
    • The point is that Gunnar is far and away the superior defender at the more premier defensive position. They would not move Gunnar to a less important position is my point and valid.   
    • Maybe he should have said, something you could "eventually" be wrong about.  After all, how can you be right about something that hasn't happened yet, right? The fact is, we don't know.   Everyone has their opinions. Here's mine.  If Holliday, Henderson and Mateo are all on the roster for 2024, it's my opinion that Gunnar gets the most starts at shortstop, Mateo gets the 2nd most, and Holliday only gets a handful, max.  If Gunnar performs as well as he did in 2023 for years to come, I don't see Holliday playing much shortstop at all until it's vacant. I would bet that the majority of posters on here don't believe that Holliday will push Gunnar to 3rd base......Gunnar will have eventually push Gunnar to 3rd base if his defense deteriorates for one reason or another.  Until then, he's the guy, and to keep Holliday in the lineup, then we slot him at 2B.
