Somehow, some way, Richard Bleier was really good for the Orioles

Somehow, some way, Richard Bleier was really good for the Orioles

Acquired for nothing, with his expectations the same, Richard Bleier was a surprisingly productive utility pitcher in the Orioles bullpen. Do you remember where you were the first time you saw Richard Bleier in an Orioles uniform? I ‘memba. You know, it was that stupid night in early May that Chris Sale, ahem, ACCIDENTALLY threw a fastball behind Manny Machado in an attempt to settle a score that had no business being relit. Yeah, that night was dumb. To make it even dumber, Kevin Gausman was tossed for poking Xander Bogaerts with a slider in the 2nd inning that clearly slipped out of...

The Orioles had no good backup infielders and their regulars paid the price

The Orioles had no good backup infielders and their regulars paid the price

When your bench infielders are some combination of Ryan Flaherty, Paul Janish, and Ruben Tejada, you don’t have much of a bench at all. When your team’s two best players are just 25 years old, play second and third base, and remain healthy for the entire year, the role of the utility infielder lacks some relevance. That was certainly the case for the 2017 Orioles led by team MVP Jonathan Schoop and all-world Manny Machado. If it weren’t for a significant injury to starting shortstop J.J. Hardy, the Orioles infield bench would not have played as much as they did. Hardy suffered a...

Baltimore Orioles: The problem with the 2018 Manny Machado plan

The Baltimore Orioles have a real problem: Manny Machado and the fact that he will be entering free agency at the end of the 2018 season. The Baltimore Orioles third baseman is one of the elite players in the game. So, he is expected to earn a hefty salary that the Orioles might not be […] Baltimore Orioles: The problem with the 2018 Manny Machado plan - Birds Watcher - Birds Watcher - A Baltimore Orioles Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Machado’s poor first half soured a late-season surge

Machado’s poor first half soured a late-season surge

The Orioles’ third baseman struggled to get going this year, but still proved to be an offensive force. In 2017, for the first time since Manny Machado reached the majors (way back in 2012), the Orioles were a losing baseball team. It’s no coincidence that Machado, by in large the most talented guy on the squad, also had the worst full season of his career. He overcame an extremely slow start to the summer and ended up with decent offensive numbers, and yet they were still nowhere near his lofty standards. A .259 batting average and .310 on base percentage for the season were both...

The 2017 Orioles were a failed team. So what’s next?

The 2017 Orioles were a failed team. So what’s next?

The Orioles were sunk by their starting rotation and wasted one of the last years before Manny Machado is a free agent. Where can they go from here? The 2017 Orioles season is finally over. The book is closed on them. They can lose no more. Now is the time to start reckoning with the disaster that engulfed them for the month of September. Although they could pretend otherwise from April through August due to weakness in the rest of the league, this was a failed baseball team. There’s no way to look at it any differently. When everything was said and done, the Orioles MLB-worst starting...

Rays 4, Orioles 9: Archer Off Target (Sorry)

Rays 4, Orioles 9: Archer Off Target (Sorry)

Tampa Bay’s bats unable to overcome Sunday’s pitching woes in matinee loss Well it sure started off in a fun way. With Dylan Bundy scratched from today’s start, Chris Tillman was on the mound against our Rays, and Kevin Kiermaier welcomed him by taking his very first pitch over the wall in right center field to put the Rays up 1-0 early. Chris Archer struggled mightily in the first frame as well, giving up hits to Manny Machado, Jonathan Schoop, Adam Jones, Chris Davis and Pedro Alvarez that ended up sending four Orioles across the plate to more than erase Tampa Bay’s early lead....

Machado fights flu bug, breaks Orioles offense out of scoreless streak with first-inning homer

Manny Machado has rescued the Orioles offensive many times this season, and though Thursday’s display held a different script — he’s usually saved his game-saving heroics for the late innings — it didn’t take away its importance in the Orioles’ 3-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Camden Yards. Machado’s...
