Better outing than we've been getting from most of our staff.   

That is a pretty low bar.    A lot of balls where hit hard right at fielders today.   He was not that impressive to me.    He may get another start because everyone else is terrible.

And that is all the justification necessary. But he has decent stuff. That's a pretty good team he faced.

I didn't see much of the game.   Glad I didn't.

I wish there was more depth in the minors too. 

It seems to me that DD traded away much of our minor league pitching depth for various rentals. I think that EdRod, Ariel Miranda, and Zack Davies would all look good in Orioles uniforms. For that matter, Miguel Gonzalez would look good, but DD cut him for nothing, not even a rental. I am not saying that any of these would be TOR starters, but they would be a lot better than what we have now.

I'm interested in people's rankings for our minor league starters competing for next year's 5th and probably 4th starter slots.

 

There is no minor league starters that is ready to begin the season in the O's rotation.     Ramirez, Hess, Long and Means maybe for the 2nd half.   I think the O's trade for a starter and Dan will add a couple of  starters with AAA experience for ST..

And I think you are right.

And that's the rub. Who will he trade for some washedup starter? He will screwup the minors worse. I think there must be some in the minors that are ready to come up. At least I would think so. I rather watch some of them than for DD to pay top dollar for a pitcher that's passed his prime. No more Gallardos or Ubalados. Seems to me DD would learn. If it hasn't worked before then why keep trying to do the same damn thing? I know Angelos has thrown a wrench into the works but can't DD do a better job trading for a pitcher if that's what he will do?

It's not just the Gallardod/Ubaldo's. It's the Parras and Andrew Miiiers (nice pitcher, but DD had no intention of keeping him). And cutting Gonzo loose while receiving nothing for him. I also have doubts about Hellickson, though it's early. But also, he's another rental. Does DD have any idea at all about rating pitchers, particularly starting pitchers? Maybe there is a good reason or two why he was out of baseball for so many years.

I have serious doubts that Angelos told DD to trade away/release starting pitching prospects for washed ups or rentals. . These were DD' s decisions. If Angelos were to tell DD to spend $200 million or more/multi year  for a TOR starter, I  have serious doubts about who DD would acquire.

That's why I'd like DD gone. Buck too. Maybe being a GM for Mr. Angelos is a tough job. I do wish someone would come in a change things for the better. And he/she would hire a good manager. That probably want happen. Been a fan a long time. Would love to see them improve next year and go to a WS.

I know that I want DD gone. Not sure about Buck, but that's up to the new GM.

 2 Earned Runs over 4.33 Innings Pitched.

Ynoa recorded 3 Outs while throwing only 2 Strikes the 3rd Inning ........that's pretty rare.

In addition to the error that led to an unearned run in the 2nd inning, Manny Machado made a defensive gaffe that was ruled an infield single in the 4th, but Machado had time to glove the ball and throw the runner out (he chose to try to barehand it.)

 

 

13 OUTS: 5 Strikeouts, 3 Flyouts, 2 Groundouts (Including 1 Double Play), 1 Foulout, 1 Lineout

    • Hays is not a plus LF.  Urias is not a plus 3B.   The biggest difference in defense is probably between Cowser and Kjerstad in LF.    You just talked about pitchers struggling and defense.  If that’s the case you don’t replace Cowser with Kjerstad in LF.
    • Are we talking about Norby at 2B or LF?   He’s not going to be playing everyday at either spot and probably hardly at all at 2B.   I honestly don’t know how he is in LF.  He looked fine the few times I’ve watched Norfolk games and Tony seems to agree.   He was always an “average at best” or “offensive 2B” but no one ever called him a liability there. I don’t ignore the struggles of Holliday.  I also don’t ignore the improvements of Rutschman, Henderson, Westburg after an initial adjustment period.  Cowser seems to still be going through it.  If you want the best team come October you can stick with what you know with Urias and Hays.   I’d rather take my chances with Mayo and Norby. As far as depth, I’ve got Westburg, Mateo, and Norby at 2B with Holliday at Norfolk.   At 3B I got Mayo and Westburg.   In LF I got Cowser, Kjerstad, Norby with Billy Cook at Norfolk.   Are worried about not having three 3B?
    • I think the timing for Kjerstad coming up is understandable.  Cowser has struggled for a pretty long time and doesn’t have the track record of hitting in the past at the major league level like Hays and Mullins.  However they aren’t going to litter the whole lineup with Kjersted, Mayo, and Norby at the same time because they are all below average defensive players.  At least not right now.  You don’t solve a diminished pitching staff hit with injuries by making the defense around them significantly worse.  
    • I don’t care if he can be average. He isn’t now.    The kid has made 10 errors in 45 starts on the dirt. 
    • I’m against him being up if he rides the pine. I’m assuming he plays.     
    • If Norby has a good glove you don’t think his prospect status would be higher? Why aren’t teams clamoring for the kid? You are real down on Hays and you are entitled to your opinion but the guy was a starter in the ASG last year.    Mayo is a bat first player with super upside.    It is June 24 and a long way to go. Who knows about injuries. Why weaken your depth?   The team leads in the AL in runs scored. You talk about the kids ignoring the struggles of Holliday earlier in the year. Santander may be gone next year. Urias could be. I don’t care about next year. Their time will come. 
    • So you’re against Kjerstad coming up too?   We know Kjerstad isn’t as good a LF as Cowser.   How could they  go for offense when we have scored the most runs in baseball.  Makes no sense. Mayo keeps playing 3B at Norfolk.  He’s played ZERO RF.   There’s more evidence of him playing 3B than there is RF or 1B.   As for Holliday, why do some people worry.  It’s like if Mayo plays great at 3B and Westburg plays great at 2B, what about my Jackson!
