He only pitched 123.1 innings last season so at most he will get 153.1 innings this year. It would be irresponsible for the O's front office/managerial staff to allow him to exceed the "30innings more than prior year" rule.

Edit: He pitched 11 innings in AAA before his callup therefore he should be allowed to pitch 164 innings this year.

I'm not sure you can be this strict with Bergesen. He threw 165 innings in 2008, and his season ended last year for reasons having nothing to do with his arm. I wouldn't be surprised if the O's treat 165 as his "base" and let him throw 190 or so if he is being effective in September and not showing signs of major wear and tear.

Fair enough.

Top of the 6th, Bergesen still in.

Nick Johnson hits a chopper to SS, thrown to 1st. 1 out.

Teixeira flies out to RF. 2 out.

Bergesen gets ahead of A-Rod with fouls. 0-2 count. A-Rod takes it back to a full count, takes a walk. 2 out, runner on 1st.

Bergesen out, Castillo in. 5.2 IP, someone else will have to find his line.

I like how Castillo changes arm angles from 3/4 submarine to 3/4 over hand. Very tough to pick up.

I wonder how effective a Castillo/Meredith specialist combo could be? That's a lot of different release points.

5.2 IP, 3 H, 2 BB, 0 R (so far), 2 K's. Great outing. 76 pitches, 51 for strikes. If this was a real game, he'd have had a good shot of going 8 IP.

Bergesen was awesome all day, he really did have a complete game in the works if this was a regular season game. Frankly, I think he has 3 or 4 CGs in him this year. He had one last year before he was shut down with his leg injury.

Yeah, glad he was able to come back after the delay. Good to see a solid start against this Yanks line-up, ST or not.

They were probably sick of seeing him on the mound.

Mickolio's in, two quick outs. last one was a K, not sure about the previous. Hazards of watching at work.

    • Yeah, basically this, that Westburg's underlying numbers (EV, barrel %, xwOBA) seem to point at this being pretty real, or at least that there's nothing 'undeserved / lucky' about this hot streak, if it's just that. 
    • The problem with a Cowser/Kjerstad/Stowers/Bradfield outfield roster is there are no right handers to handle LHP. I don't think and completely left handed outfield is the destination for an organization the values versatility.
    • Looks maybe concussion related. 
    • How can you not be romantic about baseball? This seems slightly poetic. I enjoyed reading, and correlated your experience in the stands back to what I watch in Game 1 on MASN.  It was also pretty cool to hear Jim Palmer give you a shout out in Game 2 of the series on Live TV.
    • I am not worried.  It just doesn’t remotely meet the eye test.  He has been great in the field . I can think of at least 3 outstanding plays he has made and not any that I thought he should have gotten but didn’t. Meanwhile Holliday is 3 OAA and I can’t think of an outstanding play and can think of a number I thought he should have made. 
    • Nicely stated Roy. Every since I was 9 years old and saw the O's vs. the Tokyo Giants in Tokyo in 1971, I've been infected with the Orange/Black virus. There is no cure and I don't want one. You and I sat at the lunch table with Jim Palmer at the 1970 World Series Champs reunion, and its still one of my enduring baseball memories. You said I looked like Carlton Fisk! I was at all 3 games in this Angels series, right behind the O's dugout. I got to see all our boys, and just simply love to watch this team play. And in true baseball fashion, the one game on paper we should have dominated (GRod vs. 8+ ERA Channing), we end up down 7-0 and lose. But watching Gunnar's homers, his electric triple, and he made a fantastic play today on a ball that went under Westburg's glove, Adley do Adley things, Cowser, holy crap. Kimbrel v. Trout with bases loaded, bottom of 9th, 2 outs, down by 2? That was fun. Next game Trout bats leadoff and torches a GRod fastball for a homer to the opposite field.  An observation.... If you didn't know anything about the team, and you only watched game 1 batting practice, you'd think Cowser and O'Hearn were the studs of the team. Mountcastle was taking BP with the reserves and he put on a show as well.  Home after 3 straight days watching this O's team, so jealous of the Balt fans in Balt that get to see the team with regularity. It's a special bunch.
