Hey Blue, how's it going?! I haven't talked to you in a while and figured I'd use this lull in the action to say hi. Hi!!! :D

GO O's. :)

Hi to you too! I've been busy since I moved (and trying to be good at work, which apparently I'm not today... it's Trembley's fault for putting Jamie Walker in!) but Asheville is awesome! I'm going to an actual PLAYOFF game on Friday (Asheville Tourists, Colorado Rockies Sally League affiliate). :D

Awesome! :D I'm glad to hear all that and I hope you have fun at the playoff game! I may have to check out a Louisville Bats game sometime soon so I can see some playoff action myself. I'm highly amused that half the Louisville team is up with the Reds and yet the team still somehow made the playoffs while the Reds have continued to struggle. :eektf: I keep wondering what would happen if the Reds and Louisville switched teams for one day and quite frankly, I'd LOVE to see what would happen if we switched managers for one day, LOL :laughlol:

Wow, that really sucks that the great pitching from earlier in the game all just went to waste. :(

    • Yeah I was thinking this might be good for both the team and Hays. Chance for him to press the reset button if nothing else. 
    • Actually, if you think about it, as long as there is a right handed pitcher with this lineup, once Westburg bats, there will always be 8 lefties in a row after that. 🤔
    • Sending Jackson down does nothing, there is nothing left to prove down there. He is taking good ABs, he is working counts, he looks fine in the field etc. I have used the Cowser comp, not to say he should be sent down, in the sense that Cowser looked particularly lost at times during his callup last year. Jackson is facing some professional adversity for the first time as a professional keep running him out there.    The fortunate thing is he isn't hurting the team in a significant way right now, and when it finally does click the Orioles will be just that much better. 
    • Actually move Westburg to 7th so there’s not so many lefties in a row. 
    • I’ll go with: Gunnar SS Adley C O’Hearn 1B Tony RF Westburg 3B Mullins CF Cowser LF Kjerstad DH Holliday 2B  
    • The question is, can he be productive playing just 1-2 times a week? We don't know because he's never really been in that role. Not everyone can stay productive in a part-time role. I think the Orioles will find a way to get him in the lineup 4-5 days a week. He can play corner outfield (except I would not play him in LF in Camden), DH and 1B. He still does not look great at 1B, but he can be serviceable if it means getting his bat into the lineup. That's a decent amount of ways to keep him and others fresh. Santander probably is at risk to sit a bit more than usual, but this also gives the Orioles an opportunity to have a very left-handed heavy lineup against righties at times, with Mountcastle sitting. The Orioles left-handed heavy lineup could be: 1. Henderson - SS 2. Rutschman - C 3. O'Hearn - 1B 4. Santander - RF 5. Cowser - LF 6. Mullins - CF 7. Westburg - 3B (R) 8. Kjerstad - DH 9. Holliday - 2B Imagine having to face that lineup and then have Mountcastle, McCann, Urias and Mateo for pinch running as a bench. Now don't get me wrong, Mountcastle is not going to be benched all that much, but Kjerstad could give Santander, Cowser, Mullins (with Cowser moving to CF), O'Hearn, Mountcastle, and Rutschman when he DHing a day off.  That's a lot of ways to keep him fresh and get his bat in the lineup.  
    • If so, probably just for 2 days or so.
