I have not watched much of today’s game but I don’t get the questions about BP use.

It was 1-0.  You have to use your best.  If not the complaining would be using other guys when high leverage guys were available.

 

As for why Akin?  Who else…Watkins, Or Joey K.

And now we have the pleasure of brining in Krehcrap

Not exactly saying much, but he's the best of the guys that aren't Felix, Tate, or Lopez.

The BP has done a great job, they are just showing the wear and tear of a long season.

Akin gets one freaking out to go with a hit, a HBP, and 2 walks.

If they can't pull it out, this game is on the hitting, not the bullpen.

Dagger. These two games felt very winnable. 4 game sweep would've really done something for momentum.

Guess I should've said offense to be inclusive.

It's been "miracle required" since the first loss to Detroit, maybe a bit earlier.

Its not even miracle required now. I would bet 89 wont be enough even if we win all 10

Well the miracle would be someone else losing enough too.

No picking on Odor until at least Tuesday everyone,  He came through again.

 

Tie game.

I don't care what he did today. Standing there admiring a homerun that wasn't instead of getting on his horse is unacceptable. Physical errors are part of the game; those types of mistakes can't happen.

Agreed.  I try to see the good on our teams even when it is difficult and this Oriole team has been a pleasure to watch.  JMO, but the BP has been the heart and soul of this season.  I understand they are struggling now, but I don’t get all the critics and at times name calling on a group that has carried the season.  The hitting has been an issue all year, and most of us saw it coming, but they have all had their positives too.  

Keep an eye on the good.  Not even the most optimistic of us,(not me) saw this coming.
