Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

That's the problem, he's stating there's stlll a limit but isn't doing anything to extend the season at this point for Strasburg.

There should be no limit this season. Go for it all.

I doubt they'll be stupid enough to limit him in the postseason, but who knows.

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

Heard this morning that the Nats have the best run differential in the Majors...they're +108 runs on their opponents.

Amazing season. Who knew it would happen so soon?


I'd love to see the Nats and Pirates in the NL Championship.

Top MLB draft pick Lucas Giolito is shut down after just two innings of pro action | Prep Rally - Yahoo! Sports

What the hell were they thinking? Why would you draft a pitching prospect who already has major health concerns? Really? It's inevitable that it's not going to end well.

Wanted to keep the tradition alive on TJ surgery pitchers. JZ, Stras, Giolito...

Seriously though, they knew there were concerns but that's why he was available when he was. He's young, worth the risk in my opinion.

That kid sounds like the LaRon Landry of baseball.

Monster potential and scary to face on the field...when he's actually on it.
Quote:
"After just two innings of work for the Nationals' Gulf Coast League short-season A affiliate, Giolito was pulled from a game because of a significant decrease in his velocity."
First pitch of the game, 103 MPH. 2nd Inning he's throwing 68 MPH...manager: "I think we have a problem."

*not actual numbers, made them up.




Smoot's right though, this kind of talent is worth the risk. Maybe he'll get his arm fixed and come back throwing 97-98 instead of over 100 but still be lights out. A lot of pitchers are coming back from TJ to be better, more durable pitchers than before the injury.

Lost 5 straight. No longer best record in the Majors. STILL talk going around about sitting Strasberg.


They're going to blow this.

They wasted Strasburg innings yesterday. But I don't think they're going to blow it

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

Interesting take on how the Braves handled Kris Medlen's tommy john surgery innings limit:

ATLANTA -- The Braves say their spring training decision to have Kris Medlen start the season in the bullpen was based on the right-hander's innings limit in his return from elbow surgery.

That decision has allowed Medlen to emerge as the most dominant starter on the staff in the most important part of the season.

Medlen struck out a career high 12 to win his sixth straight decision and lead Atlanta to a 6-1 win over the Colorado Rockies on Monday.

Medlen (7-1) allowed five hits without a walk in his second complete game of the season.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Medlen had the same innings limit as Washington's Stephen Strasburg.

Strasburg has thrown 156 1/3 innings and has only two more starts. Medlen has thrown only 104 innings and will be available if the Braves, the NL wild-card leader, make the playoffs.

"It was all limits to innings," Gonzalez said Monday when asked about the decision on Medlen's role. "It was basically the number that Strasburg is facing right now, 160 to 170, because they both were coming off the Tommy John surgery.

"Where do we want that 160 to 170 to end? Do we want it to end in October or do we want it to end in August?"

Medlen appeared in 38 games in relief before moving into the rotation on July 31. He is 6-0 with a 0.54 ERA in seven starts. He spent most of 2011 on the disabled list recovering from elbow ligament-replacement surgery on Aug. 18. 2010.

Maybe the Nats shoulda done the same?

Re: Official Orioles and Nationals Thread 2012

Chico, the way the braves handled Medlen does look great for them right now, but I'm not sure if it would have worked with Strasburg.
A few weeks back when Medlen pitched against the Nats the announcers were saying he's the type of pitcher that gets warmed up fast and is okay with only going a few innings, where as Stras is more about routine and settling into a start.

The only thing I wish they had considered would have been to push back his first start later into the season. Basically, I wish they had kept him in FL for a few extra weeks and then brought him up in May so that he'd be available now.

But I guess it's all hindsight.
