Thought Trembley Wanted To Extend Pitchers?

Simon's, Hendrickson's and Eaton's stats don't matter, their ERA doesn't matter, the W-L record doesn't matter. What matters is the success of our future because that is exactly what and all we are playing for this season. And having a healthy and effective bullpen to back up the cavalry is very important to that future.

They will matter if they do well and can fetch some good prospects from teams in dire need of arms at the deadline. That is one thing that is very genius about this year: the ability to pump up stats on mediocre players and trade them for high cieling prospects. Which one will be our Victor Zambrano this year?

How about this.

The last time Mark Hendrickson started was July 06, 2008 against the Colorado Rockies.

He was still transitioning back into a starter in spring training and I'm going to guess he's still working his pitch count up. But nope, no thoughts about the player at all. Just bash DT over and over and over again.

But armchair quarterbacking is the easiest job on the planet. All the right moves without ever having to make one!

Well not entirely true. You have to pull the lever to put up, and put down the foot rest. And that my friend is how obliques get strained.

So you have never complained about a move, and will never complain about a move?

Unless you answer affirmatively with that question or have been a major-league manager, you can't make that kind of statement without looking like a hypocrite.

I haven't complained about manager moves yet, and it looks like I'll never have to around here. All of the proverbial bases are covered. And I haven't managed yet, but I'm young enough to change careers one more time.

Honestly, as a former member of the media, critique was a part of the job description, I guess it is still way too easy for me to see both sides of every decision.

Besides, if I ever do jump in to disagree with a decision, it doesn't change anything. The game is still won or lost based on whatever move the manager made or didn't make.

I just found the negative vibes extra amusing with the team breaking out of the gate at 3-1.

It must really be Hell in here when the team goes 1-3.

Ultimately, the point remains. Armchair quarterbacking is the easiest job on this planet.

Very well said. Don't even try to have a discussion with some people on here. Not worth your time or effort. They would be happier if we were 1 and 3 unfortunately.

Well, considering this is a Orioles fan discussion board, you were expecting...what?

It's basic baseball to have no starter pitch beyond 5 1/3 innings? I must have missed that in the rulebook.

Come on, Terp - your smarter than that... It's basic baseball not to push your starters at the beginning of the season... It's about pitch count - not innings pitched.

Here are a couple of pitchers who pitched really well tonight and were pulled earlier than perhaps they will later in the season...

Name - IP/ER/PC

Piniero - 6.2/2/95

Marquis - 7/2/93

Pettite - 7/1/99

Harden - 6/2/96

Hendrickson - 5.1/1/91

Galarraga - 7/1/97

I was expecting dancing in the streets, long walks on the beach and lots and lots of hand holding.

Hey, when the Birds are in the tank for 11-years, a good start with a young team is kind of cool.

I apologize for my optimism, and allow the brow beatings to continue, as scheduled.

I agree with your statement, only it's not at all likely we're talking about the same people.

Its just unfortunate you and some others on here are so contrarian and try to make belittling and insulting remarks on a daily basis to people who do not have a "reputation" on here.

Its insane.

I can't speak to the other games, I didn't see them, but Marquis was spent at 93. He pitched great, especially for Coors Field, but his tank was on "E" there at the end of the seventh. Hurdle had the pen working in the sixth, but Marquis got himself out of trouble.

Gee, I didn't realize that we can't both be happy in the short term yet worried about the long term.

Thanks for clearing that up for all of us.
