Upcoming Schedule- Good Litmus Test

Recommended Posts

Over the next month, 10 series and roughly 30 games, the Os will face all winning teams - including home and away series with the very strong AL West - Oak, LA, and Seattle.

Its a very, very challenging next month with series against Division rival NY and NL power St Louis thrown in the mix. We wont face a sub .500 team until facing Cleveland (not exactly a slouch either) in mid-August.

 

Folks, we will learn a lot about this team and its post season aspirations in the next 30 games. :thumbup:

I can accept Tillman and his flaws...he's still under a cheap contract. Jimenez aggravates the living shit out of me...4 years for $50 Million...if our pitching doesn't hold up over this stretch...we'll know where we're going...

The problem is so many people were bitching that the O's should just sign someone. They got him cheap and he still wasn't worth it.

Now that the Hammel and Schamdizina................................... ship has sailed to Oakland, I don't know what top line SP is left. Price is too damn expensive for tightwad PA and our organization.

Still, we would be wise to sign a craft vet for the stretch run.

I don't think that As trade will work out- this year or long run. Both guys they got are pitching beyond anything they have before and are moving NL to AL. Not to mention both have high WHIPs with low HR rates. Oakland will keep the low HR rates but will be trouble for the hits in general - lots of space there.

 

When both regress to norms for the second half, it won't look good.

 

And then you gave up how many younger players to get that?

 

Oakland is damn good - but not sure they'll keep it up. And I still don't buy some of their bats, especially guys like Crisp and even Donaldson who's bar has crashed mid year for the second straight season.
