I'm not optimistic for BRob here. Never had a hit off Saunders, never had a hit this series. :002_ssad:

I love when my reverse psychology works! :D

(Guess I should have posted something about how I wasn't expecting Nick to be patient or hit situationally there, huh? ;) )

Single still scores him, dont agree with trying to steal there. But at least he is trying to make something happen.

And how reliable are the Orioles at stringing together hits, let alone counting on a single to drive in someone from second?

Stealing was a good thing to do at the moment considering we can't hit our way out of a paper bag. A sac fly would have been nice.

With one out you can still score on a sac fly if you steal third. You don't do it with no outs because you hope the next hitter will advance you with a grounder to the right side or a long fly if he doesn't get a hit.

No, the tag was down first. It was close, but they got him.

You watching on MASN? It sure didn't look that way on the replay angle on FSN. They had it head on where he was coming toward the camera in slow motion and his hand hit the bag and started to come up around it before the glove touched his arm.

I understand why you would not try it and why you would, just the way we have been scuffling, I did not think it was worth the possibilty of giving up an out. Yeah Milllllah !!!

    • Kjerstad does not have to play every day for him to be here.  He should be able to start 3+ times a week. He’s hitting right now so I would get him in the lineup immediately and see if there is any carry over from AAA.  
    • They needed to replace Hays and he's already on the 40. I don't think it goes much deeper.
    • A lot of people didn’t like this signing.  It was a few bad outings last year but otherwise, he was very good. He will have some bumps in the road but he’s a very capable guy still.
    • I agree. It has to be anticipating Mountcastle being out a little longer, maybe they will IL him too if his knee doesn’t improve quickly. But if Hays is out the minimum 10 days (one of which already passed), maybe Kjerstad gets 3 starts from Mountcastle and 1-2 from rest days for others, available to pinch hit the rest. That wouldn’t be so bad. 
    • I trust the O’s and Elias’ handling of him.  Similar to Decosta and the Ravens, they seem to make more good decisions than other clubs do.     I think he can work it out at the major league level if they do.  Wouldn’t be worried if he got sent down to regain some confidence.
    • I don’t see Wells coming back to the rotation. That was never the plan to begin with. Also, I’m not sure it’s a given that Means can make effective starts at the Bug League level right now. He’s been legit terrible against AAA hitters on a pretty consistent basis so far this season. Now Bradish on the other hand, if he can return, he will probably bump one of Suarez or Irvin to the pen (the one who is pitching the worse).  If Suarez keeps performing (I don’t think his current level is realistic to expect) but at a good level for a back end starter, he stays.
    • Remove Bradish and I will maybe agree. To me this guy is destined for the pen, where hopefully his swing and miss stuff plays up even more. Could be an important piece, but I’m not getting my hopes up too far after two appearances.
