    Baltimore has a run differential of -232 this year (influenced a lot by saturdays game, obviously). if the season ended today, it would be the 4th worst in the last 10 years, behind only
    2013 Houston (51-111) at - 238
    2018 Orioles (47-115) at -270
    2010 Pirates (57-105) at -279

    Can anyone explain to me why that is considered an earned run against Musgrove?

    I assume the next couple guys got hits so he would have scored anyways. The error didnt allow the man to reach base.

    The error/earned run stuff is stupid from the beginning, but I've never understood this rule. Assuming the following hitters would do the same things if you put the runner back on base has always seemed odd to me. That's not how it should work.

    Agree the ER stuff is dumb bc its so subjective to what the official scorer considers a hit or an error, but looking past that, I think we have to assume the same thing would happen. If a guy walks, steals second, moves to 3rd on a throwing error by the catcher, and the next 6 guys hit HR's, it's safe to assume the guy from 3rd was going to score. What's the other option? All runs after an E are unearned?

    Just that the run that scored on the error would stay unearned.

    1) Man on 1st. Catcher tries to pick him off, throws it into RF, player moves to 2nd on the error. Next batter hits a HR.

    2) Man on 3rd. Catcher tries to pick him off, throws it into LF, man from 3rd scores. Next guy hits a HR.

    I feel like both situation should count as 2 ER.

    Can someone please explain to me what this means. It says he signed a one year contract but it looks like he is signed in some fashion through 2023 :idk:

    He's under team control through 2023, but it's year to year and there's no guaranteed money. It's the same with any other minor leaguers who come up, although I'm not sure in his case why he would start arb in 2021 instead of later.

    He’s under team control for 4 more years, he’ll earn the same amount next year and then go to arbitration each of his last 3 years of team control to determine his salary.

    Tanaka should have a no hitter in the 8th. Lead off batter in 1st hit a routine grounder to 3b that Urshela booted and the runner was safe. Home cooking official scorer called it a hit, which was laughable. That's the only hit through 7.

    Vlad Jr had the best 13 pitch AB that turned into a double play I've ever seen vs Chapman today. Hit one 800 feet foul, fouled off 101 a few times, just a damn good AB even if it just shows as a DP in the box score.

    this has been a ridiculous season to be a diehard fan of VU baseball. Outright SEC title, SEC tourney title and CWS title. No-hitter thrown by our phenom future ace in a Super Regional. Then Buehler is doing historic shit as a key part of a likely World Series participant. Sonny having a career revival under his old pitching coach with his old catcher behind the plate for much of the season, storybook stuff. Minor pitching like never before down in Texas. Reynolds making a huge impression ahead of schedule. Dansby was showing to be better at the plate before he went down a while back. Price struggling big time lately but he was really pretty good up till the ASG. TK finding a new home with the Cubs. Something like 8 pitchers from VU have started MLB games this year. I'm not taking it for granted that's for sure
