Holy moly. He's just having a rough spell, that's all. He's shown he can be a good pitcher, it's just a matter of doing it all the time. No point hating on the guy...

Don't hate him, I just think we have better options than him starting right now, I felt the exact same with Trachsel. We seem like we are always starting out in a hole when they are pitching. I like him too, he reminds me of me when I pitched in college except, getting behind everyone and the walks.

this eats at me more than anything else, it seems every other team gets at least there runners in from 3rd with 1 or less outs, we seem to botch it most of the time.

Other teams would never put up with the failure of a hitting coach that we've had all these years.

It's called paranoia. Every team's fans feel like their team is the only one that doesn't get that done with perfect efficiency. Truth is, most teams don't most of the time. The O's may in fact be below average in that category, but believe me, that rant is universal and it can't be true for everybody.

not asking for perfect efficiency, just 8 out of 10 times, which I know we don't do.

I agree, I've wanted him axed for the longest time, he must have something hanging over PA's head and the coaches.

Nah, he's just lucky he's in :cussing: baseball.

Seriously, I'm a Crowley defender but it does seem to me that this past offseason was probably the time to finally make a change. Not because I think it's all his fault, but just because he's been out hitting coach for years and we haven't had overall success. After some amount of futility, change just for change's sake does start to make a little bit of sense.

Busted MLB.tv makin me mad! :angryfire:

Anyone with TV working, was the called strike one to Roberts really over the righthanded batter's box as it appears on Gameday?

Also, what happened with the Bynum CS? Botched hit and run or straight steal and he just didn't get a good enough jump?

    • Yeah, basically this, that Westburg's underlying numbers (EV, barrel %, xwOBA) seem to point at this being pretty real, or at least that there's nothing 'undeserved / lucky' about this hot streak, if it's just that. 
    • The problem with a Cowser/Kjerstad/Stowers/Bradfield outfield roster is there are no right handers to handle LHP. I don't think and completely left handed outfield is the destination for an organization the values versatility.
    • Looks maybe concussion related. 
    • How can you not be romantic about baseball? This seems slightly poetic. I enjoyed reading, and correlated your experience in the stands back to what I watch in Game 1 on MASN.  It was also pretty cool to hear Jim Palmer give you a shout out in Game 2 of the series on Live TV.
    • I am not worried.  It just doesn’t remotely meet the eye test.  He has been great in the field . I can think of at least 3 outstanding plays he has made and not any that I thought he should have gotten but didn’t. Meanwhile Holliday is 3 OAA and I can’t think of an outstanding play and can think of a number I thought he should have made. 
    • Nicely stated Roy. Every since I was 9 years old and saw the O's vs. the Tokyo Giants in Tokyo in 1971, I've been infected with the Orange/Black virus. There is no cure and I don't want one. You and I sat at the lunch table with Jim Palmer at the 1970 World Series Champs reunion, and its still one of my enduring baseball memories. You said I looked like Carlton Fisk! I was at all 3 games in this Angels series, right behind the O's dugout. I got to see all our boys, and just simply love to watch this team play. And in true baseball fashion, the one game on paper we should have dominated (GRod vs. 8+ ERA Channing), we end up down 7-0 and lose. But watching Gunnar's homers, his electric triple, and he made a fantastic play today on a ball that went under Westburg's glove, Adley do Adley things, Cowser, holy crap. Kimbrel v. Trout with bases loaded, bottom of 9th, 2 outs, down by 2? That was fun. Next game Trout bats leadoff and torches a GRod fastball for a homer to the opposite field.  An observation.... If you didn't know anything about the team, and you only watched game 1 batting practice, you'd think Cowser and O'Hearn were the studs of the team. Mountcastle was taking BP with the reserves and he put on a show as well.  Home after 3 straight days watching this O's team, so jealous of the Balt fans in Balt that get to see the team with regularity. It's a special bunch.
