The Plight of the 2021 Baltimore Orioles

Welcome to Baltimore Colten Cowser!

 

5 tool CF prospect that doesn't do anything spectacular but a LH college bat that should move through the system fast. 

 

It's an underslot pick, so hopefully they can overpay for a couple other prospects with the savings and improve in more areas. 

 

I don't hate it as it's not a year where there is a great pick to take at 5 and since last year's first round pick is a complete question mark with the heart issue, the safe choice was probably the best one.  

 

It's a crap shoot.

So far it's been all underslot picks through 8 rounds.

Spenser Watkins with 6 strong innings. Dude has a nice change up and cutter. Kind of lower velocity pitcher but he had it going tonight. 

 

He's got good movement on his pitches, seems to locate everything well.

Lopez really is a 4 inning starter. Hyde gets a lot of grief but he came out with the quick hook and it worked out tonight. 

As many have been trying to convince him for months.  I understand this is not sustainable and can't be done every outing.  Sometimes there's not much choice but to try to squeeze more innings out of your starters.  But I felt like, especially during that 14 game or whatever losing streak, he was not managing his pitching effectively to pull all the stops and eek out a win even if it meant using up the bullpen and essentially conceding the next two or three games.
