I don't like this. He did a helluva job. And I particularly don't like the supposed reason as follows:

After inheriting one of the worst pitching staffs in baseball upon coming to Baltimore, Brocail helped this year’s group improve the team ERA from 5.59 (15th in the American League) to 4.51 (ninth).

The rotation’s ERA dropped from 5.57 (14th) in 2019 to 5.09 (11th). But the biggest gains were made by a bullpen that lowered its ERA from 5.79 (15th) to 3.90 (seventh).

Brocail was lauded by members of the organization for his work with rookie starters Keegan Akin and Dean Kremer and veteran left-hander Tommy Milone, who registered a 3.99 ERA in six starts and averaged a career high 9.5 strikeouts per nine innings before his trade to the Braves for two players to be named later.

I’m hearing that the Orioles are making broad structural changes based on economic factors and the possibility of minor league condensing.


This basically sucks.

I just learned that my father, a hardcore Republican, is now voting Democrat. He never would have done that when he was alive.

I doubt he was breaking the bank. I don't see any sacred cows among coaches though, including Hyde. I don't find particular fault with any either.

3b/infield coach Flores also tossed.

Brocail had a damn good effect on the staff.I don't understand this move at all.

Personnel moves are usually personal. Not reality based. Yaz II

I thought he was doing a good job also.

The Nationals also fired their pitchign coach, Paul Menhart. Wouldn't it be fun if the Orioles hired Menhart and the Nationals hired Brocail?


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.
