Schmuck: Orioles' J.J. Hardy is not one to rest on his laurels, but days off have been beneficial

The veteran shortstop, in the final guaranteed year of his contract, is disappointed by his play this season, especially in the field. Occasional time out of the lineup has provided a mental break.

MLB Draft 2017: Orioles infield depth review

MLB Draft 2017: Orioles infield depth review

The Orioles have Manny Machado, which is great, but they won’t have him forever. Is there anyone in the minors who can join him, or follow after, in the infield? With the exception of injuries and one unfortunate suspension, the Orioles have had a stable quartet in their infield for four consecutive seasons now. This has been a good thing for the organization and a big reason for two of those years ending in playoff berths.

Orioles play of the game: J.J. Hardy’s unlikely game-tying single

The Orioles were down to their last out on Tuesday night when J.J. Hardy caught up to a 100mph pitch for the game-tying single. Who saw that coming? An informed observer can have a pretty good idea to know what’s going to happen in a given baseball game and on any particular play. There’s season performance for the batter and pitcher, platoon splits, splits against pitchers who throw at a certain velocity, splits against specific pitch types, and any number of things that can be determined depending on how granular you want to get. It’s good for a person to know all of that stuff...
