Still time for a 9th inning rally.
Looked like this was going to be an offensive day with 2 of first 3 reaching and having 2nd and 3rd with 1-out. Didn't turn out that way. Series win is good, but you'd like to take advantage of the weaker teams (people keep saying this, but it wasn't too long ago, everyone said that about when playing the Orioles too).
One thing, and I'll probably put this in the other 2023 thread, but I think the Orioles need to find a solid LH-hitting DH-1B-CO type for the bench+ role. I don't really like prospects in that role.
I think Seth Brown would be an interesting target. He's 30, but still pre-arbitration so he's got a different career trajectory at this point. Playing a strong bench role on a hopefully competitive team could be interesting to him A's are going backwards next year and he makes little sense for them in 2023-2024.
Something simple like Joey Ortiz and 2 DSL kids outside of the top 30 would seem a reasonable package. OAK lacks much in terms of MI prospects so getting something with some modest projection (top-20 kid) for Brown would seem reasonable.
No rally....big double-header tomorrow. Wake up the bats. Who has a chicken?
