No, you horse's ass. You're not my superior officer or my boss, so you don't get to tell me what to do.

I would love to know what % of the users have him on ignore.
150 K's for B.J.
Pitchers with 14 or more Ks in a game this year: Clayton Kershaw, Jon Lester, Felix Hernandez, Jose Fernandez, Max Scherzer... and Mike Fiers
How many of those were 14ks in 6ip, besides Fiers?
This is the Royals last game this season against a team with a better record than them.
Man the save rule is stupid. Greg Holland just got one for getting two outs with a four run lead. (He also walked a batter, just to show off how stupid of a rule it is.)
That 6 inning, 14 K performance is a record:
No pitcher has ever had as many Ks in fewer innings, or fewer innings with as many Ks.
Fiers is the 8th guy in history with a 6 inning, 14 K game. He joins: Max Scherzer, Kelvim Escobar, AJ Burnett, Randy Johnson, Kerry Wood, Nolan Ryan, and Sam McDowell
By bWAR, the first place Orioles best position player is Steve Pearce, and their best pitcher is Darren O'Day.
The Orioles are interesting IMO because they don't have a single MVP or CY candidate, and none of the players are having career years. They just have a ton of guys who are average to above average, and almost no truly terrible players. This team is a little like some of the Weaver teams from the 70s except with the bullpen getting a lot more innings.

Hell, pitchers can get a hold without even recording an out. Obvious example...LOOGY comes in, walks the lefty, then leaves. If no run scores, it's a hold
1. Enters the game in a save situation;
2. Records at least one out
3. Leaves the game before it has ended without his team having relinquished the lead at any point and does not record a save.
I thought they were required to record at least one out.
You could throw a ball, have the catcher throw a runner out, and get a hold, which is almost as stupid.
Holy poop, Matt Adams is up to three walks this month!
And Rosenthal's first batter BABIP goes to .600 or something.
Call stands.... whew....
