What's the record? We might as well go for it. Have something to root for.:angryfire:

I have no idea what the record is.

The most I know about it is that Cal has the all-time record for hitting into the most (350, nice round number)...and that Joe Torre once hit into 4 of them in a single game...

The two today still put us at 19th in MLB. So not really. Besides, I think the dismantling of our pitching staff is a more important concern today.


Well if we continue on this pace, 5 DP's in 10 innings, we'll be the leaders within a week or so :rofl:

The record for most in a game by a team is 6... happened 12 times in the AL, once in the NL... BOS did it 4 times, the Orioles only once...

Most in a game by both teams is 9... happened twice... in both cases, BOS hit into 6 of the 9...

    • Call him up already.
    • Cowser just homered. Doesn’t seem to have missed a beat with the minor injury time. 
    • Well, Lester was hitting well in AAA. Maybe that translates to a good game today.
    • Ugly lineup today given the injuries and poor performers.  Yuck. https://twitter.com/Orioles/status/1665409842821955591?t=d4kxFMtWqoHocsECOZRO3Q&s=19
    • First,  as I said,  in most cases we wouldn't be getting rid of them,  just lowering their playing time.   Urias and Mateo can stay on the roster,  just in more of a platoon/back up/role player.   I WOULD trade them too if the deal was right,  but they have value for the team,  though maybe not in constant starters role, especially with Mateo.  Frazier should have never been signed in the first place,  and while he's performed ok, .700 OPS, it's still below the league average of .728.  For Mateo and Frazier I think Ortiz and Westburg would improve the lineup while not really costing us much, if anything,  in the field.  Mateo has been that bad and I believe Westburg would be that good.  For me I'd trade/cut Frazier, use Mateo as a pinch runner/defense type with Urias getting the extra starts when Westburg/Ortiz/Henderson needs a day off.  To make room Frazier is gone and Vavra is optioned as having Urias and Mateo used like this makes Vavra not needed.      Second,  could they struggle?  Sure.  I'd rather them struggle now than in August.  That said we aren't asking them to replace great hitters.   Mateo and his .ops since May shouldn't be difficult for Ortiz to match or better, even if he struggles a bit, and the .700 Frazier has put up this year isn't a super high bar to clear either.   There is no guarantee that they will do it,  but that's one reason why Urias and Mateo don't have to be cut or traded, just moved into lesser roles.   They are there to help if the kids show they are overmatched.  I think that's very unlikely,  but isn't impossible of course.   Third, I think the lineup is an easier fix for us than the starting rotation.  We have the pieces in place already,  so use them.   That still leaves us with a deep farm system we can tap into if needed to shore up the pitching if we go that route.  I'm not against trading Westburg or Ortiz if the value is there.  Not many are untouchable for me,  though it'd take a good deal to get them imo.  Plus if you ask me,  I'd rather improve a position that plays almost every day versus just every 5th day.   I think adding a solid, consistent .700 ops or so at SS versus the sub .300 ops Mateo will win us more games overall than adding a #2/3 level starter,  which is likely what we get.   I doubt we are willing to pay the price for a true #1.  
    • Exactly. No team is going to be targeting Frazier at the deadline. In additon, he’s entrenched as a our starting second baseman and even if Westburg or Ortiz manage to reduce his playing time at some point, I don’t see the front office opting to trade him because he has no trade value given his salary.   The only scenario that I see Frazier being traded is if the team completely falls apart in the next two months and we become sellers. Even then, it would be more of a salary dump. 
    • It's painful to watch him actually take the ball and get a QS considering the Orioles paid him $14m per in the last two years of his contract.
