Tonight is Darren O'Day T-shirt night. All fans attending will get one of these.

Odd to me that they brought up Clevenger. I guess my constant demands for Lombardozi will continue to go unheeded.

Gausmann probably should have spent the year at AAA learning another pitch or two.

Of course he can't finish the guy off.

 

He's just not good.

That Saturday game notwithstanding the O's just play better fundamental baseball than most of the teams they face. You rarely see the O's making the kind of base running blunders that we've been seeing out of Tampa Bay. While the O's defense is a nightly highlight reel what often gets overlooked is that they make so many tough plays look routine.

Hookay ... Scratch him from the playoff rotation.

 

Why can't this team develop a pitcher?

He already has four pitches.

 

The guy's having an up and down season which is not atypical of a rookie pitcher.

Have they handled him right?

 

He barely spent any time in the minors and his time there he was hardly overwhelming.

Fastball, change up, split finger fast ball, and a slider.

I can throw four different pitches.

 

That doesn't mean I have four pitches.

 

I can also take a slapshot but it sucks, so I have no slapshot.

And I'm not blaming him.

 

It's not like he's the first.

Get somebody in there to get them out of this before it gets out of reach.

The part about Gausman being a pitcher who 'keeps the ball low in the zone' is simply not happening tonight.
