Can't decide whose hyperbole is more extreme.

 

I know you were sort of trying to be funny there, but my position isn't hyperbole.  Its actually reality and one of the challenges of these discussions because many (if not most all) don't view the position as reality.  There are roster, playing time and service time realities that you can't avoid, if if you want to.  You will absolutely be forced to make decisions.  Many people are more comfortable pushing those decisions to the right because they believe 'something' will become apparent and make the decision for them.  Your batting average on decisions isn't going to be any better 2 or 3 or 4 years from now than it is right now, it will just be different decisions.

 

I'll defer to my previous positions on the subject and I had no intent on bringing it in here.

 

1) You will look at any player through the lens of what you believe they are (or more accurately, 'could be') and it doesn't make too much difference what side of that expectation they perform on (1SP).  If you believe in them, then they keep getting chances. If you don't believe in them, they may not.  Only extreme performance (like Mullins gross failure) causes you to force change.

 

2) We had guys like Schoop, Bundy, Gausman, even Mancini today, that have had zero stability in their profile year-to-year.  Who is going to be surprised if Means regresses some? What will that mean to the mean of Means?  Few people have a smooth year-over-year profile.  You can find a part of any data set you want to believe in if that's what you want to believe in.

 

Time will get you more information, but that measurement is in YEARS not MONTHS.  ....and while you may have more, more doesn't specifically mean relevant (in terms of making a commitment decision).

 

If you think that you're signing Bryant, what could Nunez or Ruiz possibly do over the next 18 months to take you off that position?

 

Alberto has the same service remaining (2 years after the 2020 season) as Mancini...what will either do to cause you to pursue an extension and lock them into a 4-5 year deal?  Is my position extreme?...both of those guys are at "year 5" starting next year.

Yes, your position is extreme. It does not take several years of playing at this level to evaluate someone.

Suggesting it does makes it difficult to pay attention to the rest of the details in your posts. It's a false thesis.

Really?

 

.833 (SSS) -2013

.598

.788

.752

.841  -2017

.682

.777

 

That's Schoop's OPS by year....what year did you "know" something?  You want to find the comments that wanted to extend Schoop for up to 5/100 after the 2017 season?  That's not an anomaly, we could go through most players and the profiles are inconsistent....it's one of the reasons there's so many bad contracts out there.  6 years isn't even going to give you the right answer.

 

Anyone think the Padres were expecting a .796 OPS from Machado last year?  That's year 7. Going into 8.

Would anyone give him 10/300 if he were a FA tomorrow?  No. 

Does that mean he won't put up good seasons in the future? No again.

You could change your mind after every 12 month set of information.

 

Mancini and Alberto have completed 4 years after this season (I get that this season is uniquely challenged...still).  What could happen next year that will change your position on your commitment to them as players?  They will have completed 5 seasons.

 

Let's use this simulation run.  Mancini has the second highest OPS in the League.  Obviously that's wrong this year since he's out on recovery, but let's say he does that next year.  Are you going to sign him to an extension under the belief that he remains a 1.000+ OPS bat?  ...are you going to give him 30+M per year?  ...of course not, right?  He just performed, but you don't view him as that player....even if he just did it.

 

Jonathan Villar was a throw in to the Schoop trade (literally a throw in), turned out to be the only relevant player in the trade, posted a 4 WAR season and we dumped him for a 14th round pick when we still had a year of control....with the other option being non-tendering him with 100M of payroll capacity available.  That was after 5 full seasons....we released a 4 WAR player.

 

Nunez and Santander will be Super 2s next year....which means you start paying more for the chance to keep looking at them.

 

Look at Mike Yaz and Christian Walker.  The Orioles had Justin Turner before he became The Justin Turner.  The Orioles waived him.  The Mets carried him to FA (that's 6 years)....then he blew up with the Dodgers.

 

Chris Davis was the best power hitter in the game (after 6 years) and the Orioles gave him a 7-year deal.

 

...and for the record, I'm not suggesting you'll always be wrong.  Sometimes you will be right (and sometimes you won't)...but even after you make a decision, it takes years to evaluate even whether you were right or wrong.

The fact that all guys are volatile is completely different than the argument that you cannot determine if someone is a part of your future plan and worth committing to or not until you've seen them play for 5 years.

If the latter point that you are claiming had any meaningful usefulness then no teams anywhere would commit to any players long-term. You never know everything. You gather information and make decisions. You reevaluate those decisions constantly as new information becomes available.

The fact that all guys are volatile is completely different than the argument that you cannot determine if someone is a part of your future plan and worth committing to or not until you've seen them play for 5 years.


So that isn't my point. My point is that you won't typically understand whether he is part of the plan or not until after the fact. You can play the "let's see what he does" game year after year after year and you aren't going to get to a point when "you know". Not after 6 months, not after 1 year, not after 3 years and not after 5 years. The reality is that you just have to decide who's in (that's the assessment you do internally) and you go do whatever it is you want to or can do.

There's a pretty large crowd of people that think there's a point when you WILL know but they won't....and they have no idea how to describe that point or what the gates for 'going for it' are or aren't. The players you are deciding on may be different, but 'what you know' isn't going to be meaningfully different.

The Astros and Cubs have bad MiL systems right now. The WhiteSox and Phillies did a terrible job of building an elite talent pipeline through rebuilding. The WhiteSox got a couple of ridiculous deals from the RedSox and Nats but have done little else after drafting at the top of the draft.

If the latter point that you are claiming had any meaningful usefulness then no teams anywhere would commit to any players long-term. You never know everything. You gather information and make decisions. You reevaluate those decisions constantly as new information becomes available.


Teams do it (contracts) all of the time and they suffer those consequences of volatility frequently. That doesn't mean you don't do it. You try to figure out what you think you know and you roll with the consequences. Agents want to sell the adrenaline at the point of contract.

As for the bolded second part. I'm going to say this and then you can do what you want and I'll probably leave it alone (at least here for now)...but every year is an opportunity to get more assets. There's nothing I've ever even suggested (and I've said this before) that indicates you and I aren't doing the same thing. Yes, you re-evaluate and re-evaluate and whatever....but I always get the feeling like you think that's what...game to game? month to month? It's not even year to year...that process is longer than that. You'll make choices, things will happen, you'll make more choices. Repeat. You build the system and you keep building fuel for your future. Everyone says they want that. Chris wants it. I want it. You want it. Elias wants it. Hahn wants it and he's done a relatively poor job. MacPhail has proven terrible at it.

It's not about that process. It's ALWAYS there.
It's about understanding and making winning decisions.
In Baseball, you don't avoid uncertainty in your decisions by waiting.
In 'rebuilding' you just defer those decisions and it gives you time with no consequence or accountability.

The Orioles followed up a 3-1 win on Friday night against the visiting Astros with a 4-1 win today beating the Asterisks* staff aces on back-to-back nights.  Both Greinke and Verlander threw complete games, but the visiting offense was unable to push more than 1-run across the board.

 

Alex Cobb turned in his best game of the year going 7 strong innings. Another pitcher not on the roster, Addison Reed, earned a save with 2 scoreless innings.

 

Former Astros' prospect-turned-Oriole Rio Ruiz homered twice in Friday's game.

 

Trey Mancini started off the 7th inning on Saturday with a double and scored on Chance Sisco's one-out double.  Chance would advance to 3rd on a single by Nunez and plate the second run on a Sac-fly by Ruiz, his 3rd rbi in the series.

 

DJ Stewart launched a 2 run bomb to right-center to answer Yordan Alvarez's solo shot in the top of the inning and complete the scoring. 

 

After the Game, Mike Elias was caught on a hot-mic saying.."...'hell yeah it's harder to hit when you don't know what's coming..."

The Orioles completed a sweep of the visiting Astros embarrassing them 7-0 with a combined shutout by 3 pitchers not on the Orioles roster.  The Orioles surge this weekend improved their record to 27-38.

 

DJ Stewart, hitting lead-off, paced the Orioles attack with his first career cycle.  DJ led off the Orioles half of the first with a triple to right-center before being stranded at 3B with the bases loaded in the inning.  He would lead off the 3rd inning with a double and score on Mancini's one-out single to center.  In the 4th, he'd put the Orioles 3rd run on the board with a solo blast, the Orioles second of the inning with Ruiz, who had led off the inning with his 3rd home-run in the series.  Stewart would complete the cycle with his 4th straight hit leading off the 6th, raising his average to .348 and pushing his OPS over 1.100.

 

The Orioles 12 hit barrage included 2 more home-runs, Nunez's 3-run 458 foot blast to deep left to chase Josh James in the 5th and Austin Hays tacked on the Orioles final run with his 14th long-ball of this pretend season in the 8th.

 

The Orioles and Astros both have tomorrow off.  One unconfirmed rumor has the Astros loading a bus to go back to Houston with the Owner reportedly quipping "...you guys don't deserve to fly...".

The Twins showed up in Baltimore today with their hitting shoes on, breaking the Orioles season long winning streak at 4 with a 15-5 win.

 

The Orioles started off their half of the first well with a DJ Stewart double to left who scored on Mancini's line-drive to left that Jake Cave mis-played into a triple.  Mancini would score on a Jake Odorizzi's wild pitch that put the Oiroles up 2-0.

 

After a scoreless 2nd, things fell apart for John Means and the Birds in the 3rd.  After the first 3 batters reached on a couple of hits and a walk, Josh Donaldson. the Twins big offseason signing, lofted a 2-1 Means changeup into the left field seats.  Means recorded 2 flyball outs before 3 consecutive singles chased him out of the game.  Reliever Kyle Lloyd would allow 2 of his inherited runners to score closing out Means line for the night with 2.2 innings and 7 earned runs.  The poor outing pushed his ERA to 6.14.

 

DJ Stewart stayed hot in the bottom of the 4th with his 9th home-run, a 3-run shot to center that pulled the Orioles to within 3 runs at 8-5, but the former Oriole's 2014 League home-run Champ answered with another Twins' Grand Slam off of non-roster left-hander Quintin Torres-Costa in the top of the 5th extending the visitors lead to 7 runs.

 

DJ Stewart and Rio Ruiz each had 3 hits for the O's.

 

Each of the 6 Orioles pitchers gave up at least one run in the Game.

 

The loss was a big relief for many of the remaining Birdland followers noting that you can't win by winning, you have to lose and they've only got the 6th worth record.  We can do worse.  We need to do worse.

The Twins blistered the Orioles again yesterday drubbing them again 13-3.  DJ Stewart led off their first with a solo shot but it was pretty much downhill from there.

 

Apparently, the Twins had reached their series run limit before today's game.

 

The Orioles emerged after the excitement of Day 1 of the Amateur Draft to put their own beat-down on the Twins pitching in support of Mike Baumann's Major-League debut.

 

Baumann was the story on Thursday, surviving an early scare and stranding all 3 Twins after the visitors loaded the bases in the 1st inning with no outs.  The Twins would threaten again in the second with Jake Cave advancing to 3rd on Adrianza's 2-out single, but they too would be stranded without pushing a run across. The B-man would throw clean innings in the 3rd and 4th before escaping some modest trouble again in the 5th.  A one-two-three 6th would complete his night at 95 pitches.

 

DJ Stewart led off for the Orioles and made an out.  That was surprising.

 

Austin Hays, still in disbelief that DJ Stewart made an out, lofted a ball over the out-of-town scoreboard in right to stake the O's to a 1-0 lead.  The rest of the Orioles would join in the offensive festivities totaling 14 hits and 14 runs including 5 home-runs, two more by Trey Mancini who noted that he felt good after exercising with his puppy earlier in the day. "We've had some analytics on dog workouts and homeruns and that certainly was the case today",  said Trey.

 

Harvey would lead 3 Orioles' relievers with 2 scoreless innings and 3 strikeouts to secure Baumann's first career win.

 

Congratulations to Mike.  It in no way counts but...<<thumbs up>>

The Orioles won their 3rd straight game today pulling their season win total to 30 and pushing them percentage points ahead of the Blue Jays and Red Sox into 3rd place in the ALEast.  The second loss in a row to the Orioles pushed the Rays 2 games under .500 leaving all 4 teams trailing the Yankees under .500.

 

The Orioles win on Friday night featured another strong outing by Alex Cobb, besting his last start with 6.1 shutout innings and lowering his season ERA to 4.71.  He's looked more like the pitcher the Orioles envisioned when the signed him prior to the 2018 season over the last month.

DJ Stewart, Austin Hays and Trey Mancini continue to pace the Orioles bat-attack accumulating another 7 hits and accounting for 4 of the 6 runs the Orioles scored.  Trey's 2-run home-run in the 1st, his 19th, would prove to be all of the runs the Orioles would need.  Renato Nunez also homered for the Orioles.

 

Saturday's win was a bit more back and forth after the Orioles jumped out to a 2 run lead in the first inning on Anthony Santander's 2-out, 2-run big fly to deep center, scoring Jose Iglesias who had lead off the game with a single just out of the reach of Ray's' short-stop Willy Adames.  The Rays would answer with 5 unearned run in the bottom of the third after Manny Margot reached after Orioles' second-baseman misplayed the 3 hopper to his right.  Nate Lowe would provide the big blow with his own 2-run home-run to the same section as Santnader's.  RBI singles by Yandy Diaz and Adames would complete the ray's scoring.

 

The Orioles would chip away in the 6th after Ruiz's 1-out double and scoring on Alberto's grounder to left that eluded the reach of Diaz.

 

In the 7th, Ruiz's RBI single would pull the Orioles to within a run, but it was catcher Kevan Smith's throwing error on Alberto's chopper in front of the plate that plated the Orioles go ahead runs.

 

Edurado Parades would get the win with 1.1 innings and Tanner Scott would get his first save of the season following 6 Oriole pitchers with a 1-hit 9th to secure the win.

The Rays salvaged the final game of the series breaking a three-game Oriole winning streak in a low scoring 3-1 contest.

 

Blake Snell (wait, why is he pitching?) and 3 relievers held the Orioles to a single run while striking out 16.

 

Austin Meadows hit a long fly into the seats in right center off Orioles' starter, John Means with one-out in the bottom of the first.  Manny Margot tacked on 2 more runs with a fly-ball that found the fifth row in right-field in the fifth.

 

Means lasted 5 innings, taking the loss.

 

The Orioles lone run came in the top of the 9th as the, and we're looking for a new word here, something that means significantly hotter than 'torrid', DJ Stewart collected his 3rd hit of the game and 11th home-run of the season.  Stewart's 3 hits accounted for half the Orioles total and raised his batting average .383 and his OPS to 1.202.  While not currently qualified, Stewart would lead the league in OPS surpassing Juan Soto at 1.196.  Team-mate Trey Mancini, who had the day off, remains just behind the leader at 1.102.

The Orioles split the final 2 games of the Series in Cleveland and stand at 31-44, falling back to 5th place as the lower teams jockey for position.

 

Wednesday night's contest saw another strong outing from Alex Cobb as he went another 7 innings with the lone blemish coming on a Robinson Chirinos flyball that found the 2nd row in left, just out of the reach of left-fielder Anthony Santander.

 

Shane Bieber, no relation to Justin, held the Orioles scoreless into the 7th until Renato Nunez lofted a 2-0 fastball down the left-field line that stayed fair to tie the score at one each.  Bieber would not Love Himself balking home the go ahead run after an Alberto double chased Ruiz, who had walked, to third.  That would complete the scoring with Harvey adding his 7th Hold and Tanner Scott closing out the 9th for his 2nd save.

 

The Orioles scuffled in the finale and the Indians brought their hitting moccasins, putting 11 runs on 5 Oriole pitchers highlighted by Fransisco Lindor's 4-hit night.

 

Carlos Carrasco continued his strong recovery from leukemia with 6+ innings of 1-run ball, striking out 9 Oriole and lowering his ERA to 4.07.

 

The Orioles were only down 4-1 through 6 innings before the Indians shell-shocked them in the 7th, plating 6 runs.

 

Renato Nunez hit his second home-run in 2 games for the Orioles bringing his season total to 16.

The Rays took the opener (not that opener) of the weekend series in Baltimore, but needed extra-innings to get it done.

 

John Means got touched up in the first for 4 runs with the big blow coming off the bat of Jose Martinez who launched his 2-run home-run onto the flag-court in right.  Means would get chased in the 5th after only one out, by Martinez again, with a 2-run line-drive through the right side of the infield.

 

Trey Mancini would tie the game in the bottom of the 8th with his team leading 20th home-run following an RBI single by Austin Hays that scored Jose Iglesias, who led of the inning with a swinging bunt.

 

The Orioles and Rays would trade several scoreless innings before a Bryan Holiday error in the top of the 12th opened the door for 3 unearned runs in a 4-run inning. The Orioles would go quietly in the bottom of the inning for a final of 10-6.  Hunter Harvey took the loss, dropping his record to 1-4.

 

Renato Nunez stayed hot with his 17th home-run, a solo-shot, off Rays' starter Tyler Glasnow in the 4th inning.  DJ Stewart got the Orioles on the board in the 3rd inning with a 2-run blast to deep right-center, his 12th of the year.

The Rays brought their simulated broom to a simulated Oriole Park at Camden Yards this Father's Day weekend and used it.

The Orioles dropped Saturday's game 3-2 with the clueless, hypocrite Blake Snell out-pitching non-Oriole Aaron Sanchez.

The Ray would jump out to a 1-0 lead in the second inning on Yandy Diaz's rbi single. The Ji-Man would hammer Sanchez's 2-out, 1-2 pitch to deep right-center that also scored Joey Wendle who had led off the inning with a 3-2 walk. That would complete the Rays scoring and it was all they'd need.

The Orioles did answer with a run in the 3rd after Rio Ruiz coaxed a 1-out walk of Snell and Austin Hays lined a 2-out double off the base of the wall in left-center. Left-fielder Anthony Santander would launch the first pitch he saw, leading off the 6th inning deep to left -center for his 19th home-run, one behind team leader Trey Mancini. That would be all of the offense the Orioles could muster.

Colin Poche earned his first save of the year retiring the final 2 Orioles.

More of the same for Orioles fans on Father's Day as the Rays would again jump out to a lead that they wouldn't lose, winning 7-4. The win pushed them back over .500 at 40-39 and dropped the Orioles to 31-47.

The Rays would strike 4 times in the first off Oriole rookie Mike Baumann (1-2), who continued to struggle to command the zone and couldn't wriggle off the early hook. He would settle down a little, escaping with base-runners on in the next 3 innings before the Rays plated Nate Lowe off a Wily Adames line-drive to right-center closing out Mike's night on 109 pitches.

The Orioles would score lone runs in the 3rd and 8th innings before Yusniel Diaz deposited a fly-ball into the seats in left-center, his 3rd of the year off former D-Back Anthony Banda. Up 7-4, Jose Alvardo entered for Tampa-Bay and locked down the final 2 outs for his first save of the year. Former two-way player Brendan McKay would get an out in the 8th before giving way and would even his record at 7-7.

The Orioles left another 17 men on base, prompting Brandon Hyde to note, "....you know that more isn't better here, right?"

The Orioles split the first 2 games of the Series in NY, bombing the Bronx Bombers in the first game 11-5.  The Yankees would come back in game two and win 8-3.

 

The game 1 homerunapolooza would feature 4 long-balls on each side.  Aaron Judge got the Yankees off to an early lead with an opposite field fly to put them up 2-0.  The Orioles would answer the top of the third with a pair of runs on 4 consecutive hits.  Solo blasts by DJ LeMahieu and the-artist-formerly-known as Mike Stanton would put the Yankees back on top in the bottom of the inning.  The Yankees would hold the lead 5-4 into the 5th when the Orioles broke it open with 6 runs.  Solo homers by Anthony Santander and Jose Iglesias and a 3-run big fly by Hanser Alberto, his second home-run of the game, would account for most of the Orioles scoring.

 

The Orioles 14 hit attack was led by Hanser Alberto's career day going 2-3 with the homers, 2 walks and 5 rbi.

 

Alex Cobb started for the Birds and didn't make it through the 4th, giving up all 5 Yankee runs before 6 Orioles relievers closed out the game.  Kyle Lloyd moved to 5-4 with the win.

 

In the second game, James Paxton would hold the Orioles to 1 run over 6 innings and a 5-run 4th inning would secure all the Yankees would need.Jose Iglesias continued a hot week with a 3-hit performance including a double and a triple.
