2018: Remainder of the Season Games Thread

Winning run in extras standing on second base... and all that goes through my mind is "I hope this guy hits a HR so they get the winning run in from second."

Because well, a simple base hit with RISP seems so much harder...

Where is Britton?

Not gonna build his trade value sitting in the bullpen.

Buck is saving him like the game vs Toronto

Was wondering the same thing.

Bundy would probably bring a bigger haul than Manny at this point. The O's are gonna suck for at least a couple of years, so if it were me i would seriously consider letting him go for some top prospects.

He is saving him to get the save... Don't question Buck's genius...

I don't care about the outcome of this game.

It just makes no sense not to use Britton.

Again.

Three solo shots here in the bottom of the 12th and he'll bring Britton in for the save...

I thought Britton should have been in for the twelfth with Givens facing three straight lefties. If you're going to showcase Britton, you have to bring him into any high-leverage situation and not just for saves.

My post was meant for the coming years when we might get competitive again.  We've gone over this and the only 2 rule 5 guys that have given us anything is Flash and Rickard.  And they are/were fringe back-ups.  Decent depth but is that really worth losing games while keeping them on the roster the first year.  Santander and Aroujo may turn out to be good and since we stunk this year no harm no foul.  But the intent for 2018 was to be competitive thus no winter deals for Manny, Brach or AJ.  Then we keep 3 rule 5 guys and the season is over by the end of April in part because these guys stink.  And you are playing with a 22 man roster.  SO that's approach is just stupid.  You are either re-building or you are competing. The O's tried to do thread the needle and blew it as usual.  

And remember the Jason Garcia debacle.  How many games did we lose by trying to hide him on the roster.  I can't remember the year but it was 2015 or 2016.  And we could of used those games desperately.  That's my point.  Just stupid moves to undercut your team.  And Garcia is now a bum.  Just like most of the other rule 5 guys.  Good bye DD and don't let the door and your stupid rule 5 approach hit you in the arse on the way out.

No doubt Rule 5's cause roster problems because of the rules that accompany them. And as you said, most of them never amount to much more than bench depth. If a team leaves a guy unprotected, there's usually a reason.

Supposedly, he was sick. Whether that means mentally or physically,  I have no idea.

Big Dan also apparently controls the bull pen too.

Agreed

I don't believe they will enter a rebuild. But if they did, everyone should be traded. Because no one on the current 25 man roster will be here before the team becomes competitive again. That includes Hess.

I was in the car for a few minutes last night when I went out to buy milk, and it was just long enough to hear Jim Hunter use the words "the suddenly RED HOT Toronto Blue Jays."

Gee, I wonder why they're 'red hot'

Hunter never disappoints. That guy is a cartoon.

Maybe it was Jim Hunter's attempt a sarcasm.  But, I doubt it.
