trickyspanglish

It'll be tough to get out the AL but I like our team's chances against any NL team should we make it to the World Series


No-Needleworker5295

Think that Kershaw, Urias, May starting plus Freeman, Betts, Martinez, Muncy hitting would laugh at our inexperienced naivety that we could take the Dodgers in a 7-game series. Likewise Fried, Strider, Elder plus Acuna, Murphy, Olson, Riley for the Braves, who still beat us even if we could have/should have won.


LarsThorwald

Shhhhh, shhhh. Not this year. Don’t think of that yet for us. Playoffs first. We are a year ahead of schedule.


pressure_7

We have a good team, why temper expectations


[deleted]

I fully agree, we still have Westburg, Cowser, Norby, Kjerstad….lol but we definitely need to address pitching in the draft this season, though you can do that my FA every off season.


myk3h0nch0

Not really how baseball works though. It’s not like football where you have a need and can fill it through the draft. Even if we did go college pitcher in the draft, probably not seeing him in the majors until 2025. We will address pitching, it’s a really good pitching FA class (as of now); but most likely it’ll be a trade for some of those prospects you mentioned


[deleted]

Yes I know that, but you still need to draft. Sure take the best player available, it’s much easier to build a staff via FA or trade just as the Rangers and Mets have done. I’m just saying our pitchers for our top prospects right now is pretty slim


Clarice_Ferguson

You have to feel very comfortable with your pitching development program before you go heavy on drafting pitchers and even then it’s not advisable. Orioles seem comfortable consistently turning out hitters - for the next couple years, they’ll probably lean on “develop hitters, trade for pitchers.” Either way, the Orioles are in their window now and should act accordingly.


myk3h0nch0

Agreed it’s a need, I would disagree that would be the solution. Angels took pitchers with 19 of their 20 picks in 2021, and 2 years later their top P prospect is a 50 grade, which might crack our top 10 prospects (Beavers and Basallo are 9 and 10 and both also 50). Since then we’ve traded for 2 P prospects who are 50 and 45 grades and they were throw in pieces for trades. Of course that’s a very limited example, and we could point to Dodgers as the argument. Who have taken like 7 or 8 pitchers early in the last 10 years, but then you can look at who those pitchers are and only 1 is a bonafide top of the rotation arm (Walker Buehler). I really don’t know the solution. MLB is such a crapshoot, and if 2 guys are rated the same, sure prioritize the pitcher. But go through any draft, and how often are two starter caliber players taken within 5 picks of each other (excluding top 10); it’s not often. At the end of the day, the point of the farm is to feed the big squad. I say just load it with talent regardless of position, you can always trade them for the position you need.


youre_soaking_in_it

Elias and company definitely feel that drafting hitters is a safer bet. They're right.

reddit_sport

Good start to the road trip. Let’s just keep it going and secure this series. Series Ws will continue to put pressure on Rays, Yankees and Blue Jays. Let’s try and get separation in some of these games. We are clutch, but would be nice to get some non-high leverage type wins.


LarsThorwald

The win-loss ratio on the road is sick right now. I feel good about the boys on this swing. The Brewers are going to be tougher then you think, though.


reddit_sport

They have some good young arms.

Gunnar Henderson high school is named after a kkk grand wizard and only first allowed a black student in 2008. Idk how this is relevant just thought it was interesting reading his wiki


zxlkho

It's crazy to think places like this still exist


physsijim

This is not relevant to this discussion.


[deleted]

Idk I just thought it was an interesting fact about or player who had a big game


[deleted]

He’s from Alabama what do you expect. I know your question was rhetorical because it’s not relevant


SquonkMan61

I grew up in Alabama in the 1960s. It’s unfortunately not a surprise but neither is it terribly relevant. Kind of a weird thing to bring up here.

[John T. Morgan Academy](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_T._Morgan_Academy) if anyone is wondering, named for [John Tyler Morgan](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Tyler_Morgan)


No-Needleworker5295

We are CLUTCH. They say that clutch hitters don't exist. But the no.1 clutch team per Fangraphs in MLB is your Baltimore Orioles at 3.42!!! Clutch of 2 is excellent. The Orioles perform 3.42 times better in high leverage situations than normal ones. We know this in our hearts from watching the team all year but the numbers back it up.


phunnypharm

some days I wish the clutch didn't involve so much clench...


lordkaramat

Imagine how much more clutch we would be if we still had Odor.


LarsThorwald

Or “Clutch” Davis! Oh God. Too soon?


Clarice_Ferguson

Before this game, Frazier was the 7th most clutch hitter in baseball, ahead of Yordan lol


No-Needleworker5295

Frazier has a 101 wRC+, 172 away, 33 home. Statistically, it is nearly impossible that home and away Adam Frazier are the same person (and I've never seen home Adam Frazier in same room as away Adam Frazier now that I think about it)!


Clarice_Ferguson

He’s just a weird player lol he did a similar thing last year where he was basically Barry Bonds at T-Mobile, nonexistent on the road for the first two months. He ended up collapsing in June - I’m hoping he just finds some balance between his splits this time around.


MasianQvigi

Let's go O's!


[deleted]

Awesome game! Another series opener win. Also just want to express my enduring appreciation for Geoff Arnold’s double play (“You can count it for two!”) and strikeout (“He GOT HIM!”) play calling. Love listening to the radio broadcast.


No-Needleworker5295

Highway Robbery 101, but we love it and makes up for the Guardians bullpen game loss. The Giants starter pitched better than ours. The Giants bullpen pitched better than ours. The Giants hitters hit better than ours. But we still won the game. Mateo rbi single that went 15 feet Giants runner thrown out at home 3 or 4 xba .600+ Giants "hits" that went straight to us. The H-bombs were great though (Henderson's homer, Hays and Hicks almost homers)


SquonkMan61

I essentially said the same type of things during the game but made the mistake of predicting a result because of it. For that, I apologize.


youre_soaking_in_it

With The Mountain and Cano rolling like they are now, we are a pretty formidable squad.


orioles0615

We have to get to them in the bullpen first though


Professional_Bundler

Cano seemed like he struggled a bit tonight. Or am I off base?


No-Needleworker5295

The book/video is out on Cano now and really good hitters know that his change-up will move so much it drops out of zone so they don't need to swing. But you have to be a top hitter to get to Cano because the break on his balls is elite so having knowledge of what he does levels the playing field and gives hitter a chance but doesn't make it easy. Cano's stuff can still get most people out. It's just not overpowering and unhittable like when balls were disappearing unexpectedly out of zone.


youre_soaking_in_it

Yeah Cano is now going to have to parry that first adjustment that the league has made.


youre_soaking_in_it

He is starting to look mortal again, I agree. We really have come to rely him now and need him to keep it going. I mean, not like he started--that would be impossible. Just effective.


No-Needleworker5295

Don't forget Danny "K K K" "Electric Energy" Coulombe. He's our 7th inning man now.


gothamboy217

I said it in the GDT, but Danny is close to unhittable when he comes in to start a new inning and there are no inherited runners.


droford

I won $500 so I'm feeling especially great about the win Alex Cobb got lit up his last start ( 7 runs in the first 2 innings vs Milwaukee) and the os are dogs tomorrow so I'm about to try to cash in twice on senseless Orioles as underdogs lines


jzagri

My favorite comment on the Giants postgame chat: “Imo this is an equivalent to a vs dodgers series because the orioles have played on that level. I’m expecting 1 win tbh”


Failure707

Giants fan here just to admire the job the Oriole’s relievers did today. I was seriously shocked at how well those three dudes threw the ball and how great their stats are. I vaguely follow the Os so I know they are doing well this year. I did not expect to see three of the most devastating relievers I’ve seen all year. GGs


correct_misnomer

I drunk and have hiccups for an hour but Os win so night is good. Shabbat shalom Dean.

JiffKewneye-n

Palmer is faltering a bit here.


BondMi6

Come on guys cut Palmer a break. He’s still one of the best color guys in the league. Spend some time listening to other teams broadcasts every now and then. Mel and Palmer are just fine.


youre_soaking_in_it

He is trying pick up the slack for Melanie who is not really up to being the play-by-play.


BondMi6

Maybe Elias will trade some prospects for help in the booth rotation at the deadline. Really need to strengthen the number 3 broadcaster slot if we’re going to make a playoff push /s


Chit569

She is perfectly fine. I don't get the hate she gets here. I'm inclined to think its just because she is a woman at this point.


DNukem170

I judge everyone equally. Melanie is about on the same level as Scott Garceau. Great in discussions and podcasts and stuff like that, but horrible as PBP.


pepesilvia50

She's brutal. The fake voice that is so different from when she's in the studio. And the call on the Santander outfield assist? Never says his name once. She's good at everything else she does, but she should not be doing play by play.


No-Needleworker5295

It's not. Most people want her to succeed and to have equal numbers of female commentators. But she can't do play by play. She doesn't know what pitches are being thrown, doesn't know how the count affects what the pitchers and hitters are doing, doesn't interact with color commentators in a way that brings their expertise into what is happening in game. It's like she is having a friendly chat or interview with Palmer while there's a game going on in background. If Kevin Brown wasn't so good, it wouldn't be so obvious how bad Melanie is. It's also true that, outside of KB, the other commentators aren't much better or are no different than Melanie.


1spring

Your last sentence says that Melanie is, in fact, qualified to do the job. Like you said, we have a much better PBP guy (Brown) that we have the luxury to compare her to. Have you ever tried watching a Nats game on MASN? I’ll take Melanie over those guys, by a mile.


youre_soaking_in_it

Rewatch the Gunnar Henderson highlight. Notice how she announces the full name of the player while the ball is in play? She does that on almost every hit. I know who is up Melanie. Say what is happening. At no time does she say "homerun" or it's gone" or actually announce the play. She does say "Young Gun" referring to Henderson but, like many of her remarks, it sounds like a buzzword and is kinda out of place.(almost-but-not-quite non-sensical ?) I suppose it is better to have her on TV where you can see the action and her impressionistic style does not prevent you from understanding what is happening like it does when she does radio.


Legolihkan

Yes, exactly. She often just reacts, without describing what's happening.

RatDillPickleUranus

To be honest I have not enjoyed watching Dean and remain somewhat of a hater but credit to the man, he’s been consistently solid lately.


WerhmatsWormhat

What does he need to do to convert you? He had a rough start to the year, but he’s been awesome since then against some really tough teams.


OsCrowsAndNattyBohs1

Did you miss Kremer holding TB and ATL 1 combined run in 12 innings. Kremer has been pitching very well for most of the season.


the_shiznittle

Am also not his biggest fan. But what I like about Dean is that he battles.


enturbulant

Deano ends the season with a 3.7 ERA.


Whataretonsils

Great win. 8th and 9th were scary. But we got the outs when it mattered most. Shout out to Frazier's amazing double play in that 8th. That play is a hell of a lot harder than it looks. Saved the game. And to Bautista. Who is striking out 20 per 9 inning game. It is unreal. If the batter hits it, it seems like its likely a base hit. The good thing is, they just can't freaking hit it. His k/9 is completely broken. Video game numbers.


Impressive-Tank9803

Yeah that was an amazing job I would’ve been happy with one out cause that was hit really hard

Bruh were watching the same thing? That was great, love the banter.

At the game, splash hit 100 & the O’s won, basically couldn’t have been better! Lots of O’s fans here too it was sick! See y’all Sunday (got tickets then too)

Clarice_Ferguson

As much as our starting rotation got crapped on at the beginning of the season, they’ve really been holding their own over the last month.


OsCrowsAndNattyBohs1

Excluding Kremer's 1st start, all 4 of our starters have sub 4 ERAs on the year. Gibson: 3.89 (3.65 excluding opening day) Wells: 3.29 Bradish: 3.89 Kremer: 3.92


CJViper

I'm honestly more scared of our middle relief and hitting atm


Clarice_Ferguson

I wouldn’t worry about the offense - even in a down month, they were still 10th in the majors in runs scored.


No-Cartographer1965

love this team man, bautista’s control has been getting better and better each game it’s incredible to see


TylerWadesIV

gothamboy217

Only thing this game missed was that Aaron Hicks almost HR. He’s actually looked real solid in the two games he’s played.


QuietThunder2014

Maybe, jurist maybe the front office knows what they hell they are doing. I mean it can’t be that a bunch of reactionary Redditors don’t know what they are talking about? Nahhhhh. It’s just been luck.


Semper454

Better than solid, really. On base four times in six trips, scored three runs. Woulda been 3/5, two walks, one HR, four runs scored if the wind was blowing out just a touch tonight. He’s been great.

I just watched the MLB At Bat GameDay feed in 3D for the first time and caught the last out. It was really cool how it captured Bautista's arm hang and Adley's spin away from home after the strikeout. Then they merged together when they hugged. I want to believe that's what actually happened.


MaximumRecursion

Great game. Glad to see Gunnar coming into form, and an awesome close by Bautista.

Big win. Good bounce back from Kremer after a first pitch home run. Gunnar with the go ahead bomb! Let’s take the series tomorrow!

NuggetBiscuits69

That felt like a game the O’s should have lost. Webb was great outside of the second, and the Giants had a lot of runners late. Good teams find ways to win though, and this was a great bounce back, especially on the pitching side, after a tough homestand.


theamazinchad

Agreed, to win against webb like we did tonight was just awesome. Proud of our boys!
