I like that Hays appeared to take it well that Gassaway got the promotion rather than him.  Hays goes right out and hits a homer and a double.  (I'm not saying Hays should be upset - he shouldn't - but I can see how it might bother someone in that position.)

It's not possible that Hays didn't take it well but still went right out and hit a homer and a double?:noidea:

Atleast he didn't punch a wall.

Maybe the easy explanation here is that he'll be able to continue to play every day in CF this way?

Gassaway is back in Frederick.  Looks like it was just a "need" promotion.  His .498 OPS over 9 games didn't help though.  Gotta think he's behind Hays for a promotion now.   

Mullins is also about to return. Could be clearing space.

Well hope its for Mullins.  As much as I want to root for a CCBC alum, I don't want him blocking actual prospects.  

It wasn't for Mullins. Davis and Kemp were on the DL. Davis got healthy so they needed a roster spot.

Whenever Mullins gets back, they will need a spot. It could come at Jay Gonzalez's expense, Nathans being sent to Aberdeen, or, depending what happens with Alvarez in Norfolk the next few days, someone could go up to Norfolk (Rosa possibly.)

Gassaway's having an interesting night defensively -- he's thrown out two runners at the plate, and also has a throwing error.

He's got a good arm, just needs some accuracy work. I could see him being much better next season if he works on the throws during the off season.

    • Have you seen the lineups? They are a joke. Hyde has to go too.     😎 Insomnia in progress. 
    • I have to admit I am all for resigning Burnes too, I just can't remember the last time the O's signed a free agent the other top teams wanted.  I don't think even Chris Davis fits that category because the O's were bidding against themselves.  Albert Belle?  I guess I'll just try to be hopeful.  I can't see Rubenstein making himself the public face of the franchise and then turning around and basically saying this is going to be my cash cow.  I guess we'll soon find out.  I have to admit I am looking forward to this way more than the election.  lol
    • It seems to me they should probably change their approach or the season will end up a disaster.  It’s frankly unexplainable they haven’t demoted/traded/DFA’d the players that aren’t performing.  It’s a joke management thinks this group of players has any chance of winning anything.  Imagine if they could just walk more..
    • Sorry I’m not Gretzky fan , lol . And don’t know any of his quotes. But I would love to hear it , if you can share.    Speaking of bullpen, I agree that ours needs to be augmented and upgraded.  The trade deadline is coming soon so……..
    • I agree. He's a major factor in our odds to win a World Series. Gotta go for it while you can and keep him if we can. I generally don't like big contracts and view them as over pays. I criticized the Albert Belle signing, I hated the Ubaldo Jimenez signing, and I didn't feel comfortable with the Chris Davis extension. But to me those players did not have a solid consistent careers as a pure Ace player like Burnes does. Burnes is a player I feel confident that you know what you're getting, even if we can expect a decline by age 35. Up to that point, you're getting a perennial Cy Young competitor to anchor your entire Pitching Staff and give you a chance to win when you need it most just like he did tonight in the game 3 rubber match in a series against division rivals. This series against the Red Sox, Burnes was effectively the Stopper and got us back on track. I'm all for resigning Corbin Burnes! It's on my Christmas wish list!
    • I agree. He's been such a key part of the team competing this year. Especially since we don't have a good bullpen, Corbin Burnes has been HUGE for us. For us to keep the window to a World Series chance open, we have to at least try to retain his services. Ya never know if you don't try! What's that Wayne Gretsky quote about shots you don't take?
