God dammit, Brandon.

Better knock Corbin our early enough to still get Mullins 5-6 innings.

Well, I was wrong. Really didn’t think that was actually happening.

Unreal. Starting Hays, McKenna, and Aguilar. What a freaking joke.

With another off day tomorrow.

 

I think when you zoom out and realize they (the org, not the players) aren't playing for this season, it makes a lot more sense. It's the only way I can square it, and we already have substantial evidence to that effect anyway. It just fits.

Here's the lineup from when the O's faced Corbin back in June.  It's even worse than tonight's, and the O's scored 7 runs in that game.  On the other hand, I wouldn't bet on Hays hitting for the cycle this time.  And Corbin has actually been halfway decent recently.

Why does it make sense if they’re playing for next year?

Hell, if you’re taking the most futurest view you want Mullins to have trade value, not tell the league you think he’s a platoon guy.

Trade value? Please no. They are trying to develop McKenna during a playoff run. And yeah I think there are many things you can point to that show this. Calling up Gunnar has me a little stumped though, so that’s one thing I’ll give them credit for.

As I said in the thread weeks ago, there is nothing wrong with platooning Ced right now. Doesnt mean its the long term plan but hes been bad this year and Mckenna has been good against LHP.

Also no problem  having Stowers, Vavra, and Odor on the bench against lefties too.

Nice break there. Should’ve been a double play. O’s lead 1-0 on the Gunnar ground out.

So we load the bases with no outs and only reason we score at all is because the Nats messed up two consecutive ground balls.

That’s all they can get with no outs bases loaded? Against Corbin?
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

And of course Wells is cruising so he gives up a dinger to the #9 hitter.....1-1

1 run in 4 off Corbin is (hopefully) the apex of obnoxiousness of the past week or so.
