Game 66: Angels @ Orioles 6/12/2013

Game 66: Angels @ Orioles 6/12/2013

PostPost #1 by ofahn » June 12th, 2013, 11:11 am

LAA: Williams (4-2, 2.87)
BAL: Hammel (7-4, 5.18)

How significant would having Hammel pitching well today and getting the win? Let me count the ways:

1) We would go ten games over .500 which would put us on a pace to win 94 games.
2) We would have a turn through the rotation where everyone but Gausman pitched well. Definitely heading in the right direction.
3) We would sweep the series.
4) Combined with a Yankee loss to Oakland we would be back in second place.
5) It would make me DAMN happy.

I don't remember that last time we manufactured two runs in an inning. The fact that we did it in the first inning is even more important IMO. If a team scores their first three or four runs that way THEN they can bury the opposition with three run homers.

Would someone PLEASE explain to me why Strop was not sent to AAA for rehab? He should have NEVER been allowed back on the 25 Man Roster without showing he could throw strikes again.

What a HORRIBLE loss today. I put this squarely on Buck for trusting the game to a buffone like Strop. Memo to front office: WE NEED TO UPGRADE THIS BULLPEN AND FAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8-)

I agree birdwatcher...need pitching now.
Strop is auickly approaching trash brothers mike gonzalez and kevin gregg territory. ?..Strop was mightily boooed for his effort today. Why O why would Buck send him in there? Bad loss today.

Strop was not throwing strikes yet no rehab time to correct the problem. Or is it all in his head and they though a vote of confidence would suffice. This team cannot afford having the pen vomit it up like this.
