O’s are 21st in baseball in walks drawn this year. 11th in the AL. That’s with the addition of Adley. This is still something Elias and company need to figure out moving forward.

Few changes could help there. Obviously Odor will be gone. Mount could/should be replaced. Could move Hays too. Playing Gunnar every day should help. Cowser will help. Stowers could help. Depends on what they want to do but different relatively easy paths to take to improve the offense

Gotcha, my bad. Yes there were two.

 

...and a third play on that smash (108+) off the bat of Vlad Jr.  It would have been a good play, but a play you want good infielders to make.

 

I personally don't like the 2B thing.  I don't have to leave Urias at 3B, if Gunnar is playing 3B, he's playing 3B. I'm not sure what they are thinking interms of the future by playing him at 2B.  Not my preference and we see that with some of the defense today.

Send Hays. Need two hits for him to score anyway and if he gets thrown out the Mullins leads off the 8th.

I'm not sure strikezone awareness can be taught. Certain hitters just have the talent to do it and others can't differentiate quickly enough. I imagine its always been the case throughout the sport's history. And the way the game is played today, that issue is even more accentuated.

That’ll do it.

They don’t have the bats to make it through this run.

Baker pisses me off! Has a 100 mph FB and throws a hanging slider on 3-2. Stop overthinking it for god’s sake and stick with the heater in that instance!

Atleast we're weakening their bullpen for the next game.
