Why don't pitchers alter their delivery ingame more often?
Jeff Sullivan
7:52
It's extremely hard
Carson Cistulli
7:52
Plus, could telegraphs certain pitch, I'd think.
Eric A Longenhagen
7:53
Yes to both.
joseph

Britton MIA...
agam22
7:53
And Britton isn't the one warming up
Hal
7:53
Is Britton hurt?
Jeff Sullivan
7:53
Took a quick glance at Twitter and yeah we have a bullpen consensus
7:54
This isn't *insanity* but it is what could be taken as a symptom of such
Hint of Rye
7:54
O'Day is warming in the pen..
Carson Cistulli
7:54
O'Day is still a fantastic option vs. a RHB.
BUT!
Jeff Sullivan
7:54
Of course one should take care to recognize that Brad Brach is fantastic
Carson Cistulli
7:54
Yes...
Jeff Sullivan
7:54
But anyway!
7:55
What an awesome pitch to make Bautista go away. One down
Carson Cistulli
7:55
Yeah. Still, no harm in taking your chances with a guy who sets the ERA record.
Jeff Sullivan
7:55
Basically. So dumb
Carson Cistulli
7:55
Or nearly sets it.
Jeff Sullivan
7:55
And now for Darren O'Day
Crusty Juggler
7:56
Never lose with your best guy in the mound, that is what I always say
Oblarg
7:56
Britton has to be hurt. There's no other explanation, I don't think.
Jeff Sullivan
7:56
I can think of one explanation!

Jeff, did you ever close an important game as a pitcher?
Jeff Sullivan
7:57
No important game would ever have me as a pitcher
Britton, er, Brach's Due
7:57
What happens to Showalter if this backfires for him?
Jeff Sullivan
7:57
We write about him
Hint of Rye
7:58
This is the move you talk to the press about for two days.

Someone mentioned O'Day, so I'm posting this:
Jeff Sullivan
7:58
Double play.
actual lol
And theeeeeeeeeeeeeeere goes the FanGraphs article!
Eric A Longenhagen
7:58
Absolutely perfect feed to 2B by Machado.
Jeff Sullivan
7:58
2-2, going to the tenth!
Uncle Jimbo
7:58
Nobody tell Carson what happened!!!
Carson Cistulli
7:59
Sullivan already said. Suck it, Uncle Jimbo!
Jeff Sullivan
7:59
Now that the Orioles have escaped that I cannot wait to hear what Showalter has to say about Britton later
Pinstripe Wizard

Showalter gets a lot of credit for his managerial skills, but wow he screwed this up.
Carson Cistulli
8:00
O'Day's reaction after double play seemed to suggest, "Wow, I can't believe I was just pitching in that situation."
Jeff Sullivan
8:00
This is why managerial mistakes aren't actually responsible for wins and losses!
