Ynoa is a confusing pitcher to evaluate.   He had a truely bad year at Norfolk.  5.25 ERA.  1.44 WHIP.   in a pitchers park.  Not what I would consider a major league candidate.   But his ERA since the All-Star break is good-2.72 ERA, 0,96 WHIP.   He is hold his own in the majors right now.   I might think the he is a hot weather pitcher but in 2016 his first two months were good.  Then he had trouble in June and July. and rebounded in August.  

He probably gets two more starts this year and they could be important to him and the O's.   At best he could earn a spot on  the roster all winter and an invitation to prove himself in ST.   At worst he is just another guy who is not ready for the majors and  is let go this off season.

Just think back to how bad it was before Buck......it was BAD.

Of course it was bad. But this team is bad too. They finish below .500. Of course DD has not helped him with good pitchers. How many times has Buck changed pitching coaches? I don't think that's good either. When you have a struggling Trumbo and Davis and he keeps playing them everyday. It's easy to see they need a rest. I have read that Buck is loyal. But it's loyalty to a fault. To play his vets when one can see they can't or aren't doing the job anymore. Look I like Buck. But it's has come a time to move on. IMO

Exactly,  We are talking about why Wallace is not the O's pitching coach any longer.  This quote shows that he was planning to leave as pitching coach.   Age, health and home commitments were the reasons I heard.   

This quote is about why he left the O's and did not accept a role in player development.

Quote

Wallace said that he had planned to retire from major-league coaching, but that Anderson was part of the reason he resisted overtures to remain with the Orioles in a player-development role.

Also why Chiti, who was a capable/able bodied replacement, did not stay on.  The transition from Wallace to Chiti would have been smoother, especially if Wallace had stayed in a player development role.  Hence the move to the current configured pitching coaches is on Brady Anderson, not Buck and Dan.

We will never know how Chiti would have done as pitching coach.  And we will have to wait to see how McDowell's time with the O's turns out. All we really know is that Wallace had gone as far as he could as an every day pitching coach and he decided he needed to stop that grind.  Brady had little to nothing to do with with Wallace not coming back as pitching coach.

As I recall, Chiti was never offered the job.

    • 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.
    • When did I assume he’ll hit right away.  I assume that he has a lot more upside offensively than Urias.  He might get to it he might not.  I know Urias won’t get to it because he doesn’t have it. Mayo is going to make more errors than Urias.  That’s almost certain.  He has a better arm and he might get to more balls and make more plays.  Neither of us knows.  What I do know is that Tony thinks he can be average and most outsiders seem to think he can play an adequate 3B.   An adequate 3B or average 3B would be a nice way of describing Urias at 3B the last 1 1/2 years despite his fielding percentage.
    • Just bumping this back up. 5.2 today and more importantly only 1 walk. He's probably going to stay in the rotation when Kremer gets back and Suarez to the BP. All of that could change obviously.
    • This is the thing that gets me. At some point Holliday will play 2nd. This year I hope but soon. Westburg has already shown a quality glove on the dirt. Elias has said Mayo will play in the middle of the order. Elias said Mayo has been working out some in the OF. What evidence is there he is going to be playing 3rd base here?      I love the kid and have high hopes. Maybe 2/3 years he takes over at 1B. Who knows. I don’t get this idea we need him now. 
    • With that logic, Mayo, Norby, and Holliday won’t play until Mateo and Urias hit free agency.   It’s June 24.  Long way to go.   Mayo might struggle.  He also might pull an Evan Carter.   He might make errors.  We’re playing for October, next season etc.  Just like Kjerstad, these guys are as ready as they’re ever going to be.  Please, spare me the Hays .967 OPS since he came back.  He can’t play everyday because he’s not that good and his defense is slipping.  You have no idea if Norby is a worse LF.  One thing for sure, he’s faster than Hays.  Well, who isn’t?  Oh, Urias. You can play the panic card.  I’ll play the afraid to make changes card.   If you don’t think Mayo will be a better overall 3B than Urias then Mayo is either an atrocious 3B or highly overrated offensively.   It might get a little stormy but there’s a bucket of gold at the end of the rainbow.   With Urias, no storm, but a steady drizzle that never ends.   
    • You’re right that it is all part of the normal ebb and flow of the season, but that number can be kind of deceiving too. They have scored 69 runs in their last 13 games (going back to the Braves series). 66 of those were scored without the ghost runner (first 9 innings of the game). 36% (24) of those runs scored in the last 13 games came in the last NYY game or the 8th inning against Houston. They’ve had a tough schedule but those 10 innings heavily skew their recent numbers and I think that is why it kind of feels worse than the overall numbers show. They had one great game and one amazing inning, other than that, they have not been very good the last 2 weeks.
