I prefer Kremer to Gibson, but not strongly. Think going to either over Baker yesterday in the 3rd probably should've happened.

I do worry that world events may be a distraction for Kremer. On the other hand it could be galvanizing to go have a big performance when surely his heritage will be mentioned repeatedly on the broadcast.

Me too. Once you know you need 20+ outs from the bullpen I’d have preferred to try to get a few innings from one guy and keep it close. Or go to Flaherty right away if you must.

It's Kremer.


I'm OK with Kremer pitching tomorrow. It's gonna take good games from him and Gibson to get us back to Bmore anyway. My primary concern this series was the offense and still is. They're now set up for a big game tomorrow and I think they'll deliver.

Yeah now that you need both the choice and sequence is far less important. I've still got Bradish on 3 days rest in the back of my mind, but think he probably threw too many pitches to make it a viable option. That said, if Kremer gets yanked after 2 innings like Grayson just did, or if the game goes deep into extras, I don't hesitate to use Gibson in relief and pivot to Bradish.

You have to manage tomorrow without much thought about Wednesday. If it takes Kremer and Gibson to keep us in the game then so be it. And you give the ball to Bradish and don't look back. Manage game 3 like there is no tomorrow....well because there isn't!

 

And its really irrelevant if Bradish is just a no go for game #4. Cobble together a opener approach. But I am in no way letting maybe having a game 4 impact what I do in game 3.

I agree but let's hope that doesn't happen. If we can get to game 4 I think the pitching really starts to work in our favor if Gibson is on the mound.

I’m way more sad than I thought I’d be. That said, this team deserves my gratitude above all else. It was a joyous journey with a very rough ending… for now. I’ll always love you, 2023 Orioles. I bet as bad as we’re feeling, they’re feeling worse.

Bad time to bring up the stadium lease still hasn’t actually been signed yet? :)
