4-28-12 vs Oakland Athletics

4-28-12 vs Oakland Athletics

PostPost #1 by Rising O's » April 28th, 2012, 7:08 pm

I missed the start of the 2nd, but got to see 2 more tacked on. What a shocker to see a big 5 up there! Waaaaaaay to go!

Chen looks good in the little bit I've seen this game. Put up a zero now.

And congratulations to Frank Robinson. I hope Peter and his people made you feel special today.

Well Chen struggled I guess in the first three innings but he is making the pitches to get outs when he needs it.

No idea on crowd size. Its a shame the place is not sold out for Frank.

I saw Paulino point to his shoulder after a pitch, flying open too early. Since then he seemed to settle down some. He should be able to come out for the 6th if he can get another easy out here.

Jones looked out at the plate, but it was a very tough call either way. 9-0. Woot.

Jones is really starting to make me want to see him get signed up long term.

I have not seen any of that horrible baserunning we've been saddled with since the days of Dave Trembley. Maybe we finally have a coaching staff that can teach and get through to these players.

Last year it was Guerrero. He was an AWFUL baserunner. I don't think anyone in the league ran into more outs then he did last year.

Well done Mr. Chen. A professional 7 innings from a guy who looked early on like he would barely pitch 5. Enjoy that hot shower because you earned it.

I've wanted the Orioles to get a deal with Jones done. On this team right now I look at him, Wieters and Arrieta as guys to get signed. I know for some its not necessary yet but each looks like a real player.

Real impressive game from Chen. Looked like his pitch count would force him out after 5, got hit in the jewels with a comebacker, and manages to give 7 innings and 1 run. Couldnt be happier with the results from this guy so far

Im not nearly impressed enough with Arrietta to commit a big contract. He still has a lot to show. Consistency getting into later innings being the big one. Jones and Wieters are no brainers to me at this point.

I put Jake in the same category of Jones. Shows lots of promise, and shines at times, but injuries and inconsistency were concerns. Adam I thought was ready to shine, and so far he is. Jake with another season, hopefully his first fully healthy, I think will do the same.

Now if Zach Britton can pitch this year and show some of that good stuff we saw last year, then we have 4 guys to build around.

Not good, its looks like Hardy is limping a bit after that collision with Betemit. Better get him out of the game and getting some treatment.
