Orioles 2021

Recommended Posts

I watched a total of about 4 different games so far (not all Orioles games) and I am already annoyed with wandering strike zones, Not a fan of the Covid rules either.

They have that square over the plate and that confuses me more about balls and strikes. The umpires are not consistent....more confusion. Announcers calling games from home....more confusion for a confused and disturbed mind.

OK...2nd place at 7-8. On pace to win 76 games.

Going for the sweep of the Rangers today at 2:35.

Gibson couldn't throw a strike if his life depended on it. Yet, the Orioles swung away...at junk and got shut out.

Means was pretty great though!  Bright side!

3-1 loss to the Mariners. I watched the game. The Orioles have little discipline at the plate. They will swing at anything. The Mariners won't.

Make the pitchers pitch.

Camden Yards looked nice....very inviting.

The at bats with the bases loaded in the 6th were pretty awful.

Yea...the pitching too.

At least Hyde sees and points out what is wrong with the offense. I thought they were swinging at anything so pitchers kept throwing junk....which they swung at.

Quote

Hyde said the offense’s pre-series meeting before matching up for three games with the red-hot Oakland Athletics focused on “strike-zone discipline, management, taking one at-bat at a time, one pitch at a time.” But through the series’ first 18 innings, the Orioles have managed only three runs while drawing two walks to 19 strikeouts. “We just have a lot of guys that are trying to make up for the start of the year with one at-bat,” Hyde said before Saturday’s 7-2 loss, “and that’s not how it works.”. “Pitchers in this league, if you show that you’ll expand, they’re just going to keep expanding on you until you bring them back into your strike zone,” Hyde said. “Hopefully, we can get back to that as a group and put some good at-bats together collectively.”   .Orioles among league’s worst offenses through first 20 games: ‘The hits will come’ - Baltimore Sun

How about that! That bats woke up. Hitters were patient. 

Means pitched great. The O's should keep him. Eventually they will have to keep good players or it becomes a 10 year rebuild.

Through five starts, only three MLB starters -- Jacob deGrom (0.31), Corbin Burnes (0.37) and Joe Musgrove (1.04) -- own better early-season ERAs than Means. Over his last nine starts dating back to 2020, Means sports a 1.51 ERA with 59 strikeouts against 12 walks in 53 2/3 innings...John Means and Orioles snap Athletics win streak (mlb.com)

Saturdays 8-3 win was a nice detox from the draft. I was worrying a little bit in the 7th. Tate really pitched good in relief. Stewart running into that roof was scary as shit. I thought he broke his neck or knocked some teeth out. He's one tough dude.

John " BY All" Means just threw a 9 inning no hit shut out! 113 pitchers, great command,  ton of 1st pitch strikes, ...really...a thing of beauty.

1st time for an Oriole in 52 years since Jim Palmer. By the 7th I was on the edge of my seat. Shit...it's rare for a pitcher to go 9 innings in today's baseball.

O's beat the Mariners 6-0.

Something special is forming. Hays and Means are electric, Means has entered a new level, Mancini.....so much to build around. Club is giving us hope. I'm really liking Hyde.

Means throws 6 scoreless innings and the O's go 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position.  :nono:

Loss! 3-2.

Sundays win over the Yankees was fun to watch. Even when the Yankees went up 4-0 in the first, I had a feeling the O's would come back. The bats and bull pen won the game. Really needed the great performance by Zimmerman to do it.

MLB Power Rankings Let's have a moment of silence to remember this. The O's will rise up this ladder and we'll be able to look back and say "I remember when...."....:fishin:
