6/19: Willy Yahn Pitches In Baysox Loss

We took the freshly minted kindergarten graduate for fireworks, and what a doozy of a game.   635 start and unfortunately we had tears to manage at the 1100 curfew trying to ease the blow for a very tired 6-year-old he would not get to see fireworks tonight because the baseball men were not finished.   He got to learn that sometimes 1-2% outcomes do happen, but the Baysox did give ticket vouchers to everyone exiting afterwards.

We had front row seats right at the Rubber Ducks on-deck circle, and kiddo got an in-game fist bump from Will Benson, a new favorite non-Oriole.

Yes, a Baysox position player pitched (Yahn had a great night covering for Ortiz/Vavra, with three hits including two doubles - he was a 5-hour folk hero batting 9th and pitching), so obviously today all the limitations come off Grayson Rodriguez as he must save the Baysox bullpen, right?   110 pitches, let's go big fella!

We have to get the 6 year old to see fireworks at another game!  Thanks for sharing the story.

Here's some stats on Will Benson

New Hampshire (Austin Martin, Jordan Groshans, Gabriel Moreno leading the one lineup keeping up with the Baysox) are in next week. 

We're looking at Saturday fireworks night for use of our General Admission vouchers, which might also line up to be Grayson if he pitches Game 5 next week after this afternoon.

    • I hope we stick with five SP and deeper bullpen. The pen could use Suarez or Irvin.
    • At the end of the day, it's Boras' job to get his players as much money as possible. That has worked out in some cases, and not with others.  Hopefully the "winning" environment here will encourage players like Gunnar and Adley to sign extensions. I'd love to hear that the Orioles signed Henderson to a 10-year contract because he is a franchise guy. Adley is a catcher so that scares me more, but I'd be willing to extend him until he's 31 or 32. Gunnar though is the key and I think the Orioles know this. He's one of the best players in the league, he's fast, athletic, and barring a serious injury, there is no doubt he's going to be one of the best players in the league for a long, long time.
    • Baseball is a funny game sometimes, but you're right, we are going to battle with starters that were not even projected for the opening day rotation. Yet, here we are. Obviously anytime we have a series against the Yankees it's big, but even if we lose 2 of 3, we'd only be 2.5 games back.  The loss of Coulombe is huge and that bothers me more than the starters honestly. Perez, Akin, Baker and Tate filling key roles if Cano or Kimbrel is not available does not make me feel great. Baker threw the ball in his debut back and has been throwing well in AAA for a bit, so maybe he's a little bit of lightning in a bottle that this team needs in the pen.   
    • Count me in, but the Orioles have never really subscribed to that theory of splitting time like that. They really put an emphasis on everyday players and bench players with everyday players rarely getting days off.
    • I agree with this. I just feel like he hasn't been given a fair shot in two seasons up here. I can't see any reason that he can't start 4 games out of 7. Give Hays, Mullins, Santander and Cowser each one day off a week and let him start. 
    • This is probably obvious to many but I have not seen it talked about. With Bradish going on the IL and the recall of reliever Vespi they are now in a 5 man rotation.    Burnes, GRod, Irvin, Suarez and Povich.    And an 8 man pen. It was hoped that Kremer would join the rotation but his short 3 2/3 innings in Sunday's start at Norfolk probably means he gets another start in Norfolk on Friday.    If he does well at that point he could join the O's on June 26th.    Until then the O's are likely to continue with a 5 man rotation IMO.   Even if Kremer joins the rotation in June the O's probably go back to a 5 man rotation in July because of the number of off days in July.
