Wade Miley


5.23 (1.40/.281)

90K / 39BB, 20HR

QS: 9


Since being traded to Baltimore, Miley has not done well and has pitched to a 7.04 (1.76/.328) with no wins and two losses. He has never pitched well at Camden Yards, but has solid numbers against the Astros despite four guys hitting him pretty well.

Collin McHugh


4.70 (1.48/.297)

133K / 38BB, 18HR

QS: 10

McHugh had been pitching pretty well after a rough April. From the middle of June to the end of July, he was going along good, but he ended July with the worst start of the season allowing eight runs in only 1.2 IP against the Tigers. He allowed 10 hits in the outing. Since then, McHugh has been OK in August, but not as good as before that start good for a 4.42 ERA so far in August. He allowed no homers in the start against the Tigers, but has allowed four in August and the Astros have lost the last four games he has started. McHugh allowed three runs on eight hits in 5.1 IP against the Orioles back in May during their three game sweep. He struck out 10 and walked one.

Musgrove didn't look good at all in this game. He didn't seem to have command of anything and was throwing too many fastballs early on. He then tried to switch to breaking stuff, but didn't have command of that either and the Orioles made him pay. Now that he's been stomped, his welcome to the majors is complete. Hoyt comes in and he has no control either leaving pitches inside middle just like Musgrove and the Astros get pounded in the opener as mistake pitch after mistake pitch gets hit out. That's what the Orioles do best; punish bad pitching and there was plenty of it to go around in this one. Gausman allowed five runs (2HR) in 6.2 innings which isn't good either and on any other night, that's enough to lose the game. He gets away with the bad start because Musgrove and Hoyt were worse. The Astros didn't appear to be broken by this loss and kept fighting, so maybe they will try a little harder in game two. It's practically a must win at this point. The pitching totally failed them here. If you can't locate against this team, it's going to be a long night and Gregerson was really the only guy who was able to do that well with three strikeouts in the inning he worked and only one hit.

Miley has not pitched well since coming to Baltimore and McHugh has struggled recently after pitching well for almost two months. Maybe he should have kept the beard? Still, I like McHugh more than Miley here until he proves that he can pitch better at Camden Yards. McHugh is going to have to be good after seeing Musgrove and Hoyt missing spots and getting taken deep.

Toronto had an off day today and Boston lost, so the Orioles are tied for second again 1.5 back of Toronto who will begin a three game series with the Indians. Detroit, of course, beat Boston. The Red Sox took a 3-1 lead in the top of the eighth inning and promptly coughed it back up in the bottom of the eighth. Tazawa was charged with all three runs with the game winning run being walked in by Ziegler. He also walked in the game tying run in game one of the Orioles series, but Boston came back to win that one. The Red Sox got runners on second and third against K-Rod, but Betts hit a line drive to Kinsler that almost got into center field to get the lead back. The Tigers stay 3.5 back of the WC and continue to hang around within striking distance. The Tigers will face the Orioles for three in Detroit starting on September 9th. As for the M's, they lost to the Angels 6-4. Both teams scored in the first inning with the Angels taking the 2-1 lead later increased to 3-1, but a Cruz home run in the next half inning brought it back to 3-2. Aoki doubled to lead off the eighth, but couldn't score and the Angels put up three runs in the bottom of the eighth. The M's got two runs in the ninth on a two run blast from Zunino, but that was the extent of it and they fall to three back in the WC.

Miley is bad, and McHugh isn't much better. Against a hopefully red-hot Orioles offense, McHugh has his work cut out for him and then some. Basically it looks to be a slugfest even more so than last night. Both teams will score at least 6, I predict.

    • The missed third strike on Justin Turner in the 8th inning was one of the worst calls I've seen. He got lucky with the pitch clock strikeout to Devers but Baker gets out of that inning without giving up a run if that's called correctly. 
    • This is a pretty broad leap from signing Frazier, or trading Lopez, leading to Grayson being in in a mid-relief role. 
    • 1: I literally said, "there is big downside risk obviously." 2: Vick improved his passing in his early 30s before I think he got hurt and lost his starting job.  Lamar could do the same, which would counteract his loss of athleticism.  A ton of other quarbacks that improved in their late 20s early 30s.  Geno Smith wasn't a starter until he was, at age 33.  Alex Smith had worse accuracy numbers than Lamar for the first 5 years of his career before he figured it out.  You speak in absolutes as if you know exactly what's going to happen in the future with Lamar. 3: In 2029 you might be looking at backup qbs with 20 million salaries.  He'll still be tradeable if you really want to walk from him.  If you think he should be tradeable now then he'll likely be tradeable in 4-5 years. 4: Maybe we have different definitions of baggage, but when I think baggage, I think Aaron Rodgers going on darkness retreats and keeping the Packers in contract limbo for like 5 straight years.  Or Russell Wilson's office and plane ride antics.  Or Deshaun Watson.  Or Myles Garrett when he swung his helmet.  Lamar is negotiating a contract.  Poorly?  maybe, but that's not really baggage.
    • Not disagreeing with you it’s just a team that would likely trade for Urias would be “contending”.  Those types of teams just don’t trade away pitching. They don’t. So we’re looking at a prospect return, when right now we need MLB immediate help. 
    • Totally agree. The guy is a buffoon pure and simple. Might actually be WORSE than his father. I am starting to feel like this team will not be sold and we will be stuck w/ mediocrity for decades more to come. Prove me wrong John! Extend Adley and Gunnar and sign some bigger free agents next off season.
    • We desperately need Grayson to pitch his way into our rotation so that we can bump Wells to the pen. We might be better with Voth in the rotation over Wells right now because we need MR/SU help bad. 
    • I know that they played the same positions last year at Fenway, but I almost wonder if it would make more sense to just leave Hays in LF and Santander in RF (when he's in the OF) regardless of stadium. I get the logic of Hays covering more ground, but there is an adjustment to how the ball comes off the bat and I wonder if the overall defense throughout the course of the season would be improved if they consistently get the same looks, playing the same positions. Ultimately, it probably doesn't matter, but just me wondering.
