Not Irvin's Fault


Recommended Posts

I hope today gets in so Hyde at least has the option of Burnes on 5 days rest in the Fenway Park home opener next Tuesday.     That also looks like the only lane that puts Burnes in the Milwaukee series, something he may or may not care about.

Red Sox split in Seattle, and are holding serve in the OAK-LAA part of the West Coast swing so far.

I admit I checked Irvin's 2023 game log to see how many turns before he was pulled - it was 3.

More wound up than you usually are?

You almost had a stroke about Rengifo. 

I don’t remember that. Are you sure you’re not thinking of someone else?

I thought this was interesting. Through five games, here are the Orioles' ranks compared to the rest of MLB:

Team OPS: .717 (15th in MLB)

Rotation ERA: 3.81 (12th in MLB)

Bullpen ERA: 2.70 (11th in MLB)

 

Relatively speaking, our bullpen has been the best part of our team so far this season.

I really don't get the Orioles' love for trying to turn first basemen into outfielders. If they had a shot at being outfielders, they'd have been outfielders in high school/college instead of first basemen. Trumbo, Mancini, now O'Hearn. It's getting ridiculous.

Well what are they going to do, its not like they have any OF prospects to call up

If only the Os had better depth.

Daddy, what's depth mean? Is there when someone goes far away and we might not see them again for a long long time?

Some homeruns tonight in AAA:

Holliday, Norby, Stowers and 2 by Kjerstad 

I was at the game in Charlotte last night and the conditions were much much different in Charlotte last night.  The wind was blowing straight out the entire night at about 15 mph.  Norby hit what looked like a lazy flyball that carried about 3 rows back.  Hollidays was another homer that was more wind blown but he did hit it well.  It was also about 30 degreees warmer in Charlotte.  I wouldn't mind having a few of those guys up but the conditions at the two places were very very different last night.

I think the weather is a huge difference early in the season if you look at the teams with the best ERA's for the most part they have played games in the Northeast or Great lakes area.  The Orioles hit pretty well the first two games but the weather has changed the last few games and looks like maybe that way for a bit.  I have always said start the season in warmer weather aras as much as you can it will make it better for the players but also the fans.  Who really wants to sit and watch a game at 40 degrees in the drizzle.  If you are insistent on starting games in late March play the start of the year in the South or dome stadiums that way you get about two more weeks before you have to play games up North.
