    Orioles Sign Alicides Escobar to MiL Deal

    That isn’t Escobar anymore. They already have several guys who are plus gloves and might not hit. Escobar isn’t a plus glove and definitely can’t hit.

    Orioles Sign Alicides Escobar to MiL Deal

    This is where I am. No way should a 32 year old terrible player be starting over a list of guys we already have.

    Orioles Sign Alicides Escobar to MiL Deal

    The only thing Alcides Escobar has proven recently is that he is a really bad Major League Baseball player.

    Hyde puts his own stamp on spring training

    I made it through 20 seconds before I started tying the noose. So, it’s one of the best country songs I’ve ever heard.

    If I were forced to listen to country music every day, I’d consider it a hostile work environment.

    PECOTA projections are out

    By Statcast sprint speed Stewart was at 27.6 f/s, which puts him in the 63rd percentile in MLB. He would be just about at the median of qualified RFers last year, between Jason Heyward and Mason Williams. I think he's likely in the realm of average as a defender, even dealing with the less than ideal arm strength.

    Orioles Sign Eric Young Jr to mil deal

    Stewart is faster and may make up for it with more range. They're also similarly projected offensively. I think they're comparable in value and one is 25 and cheap.

    Orioles Sign Eric Young Jr to mil deal

    His arm has declined and so has his foot speed. Couple that with obvious offensive decline and I'm not sure he's even an average every day player. His WAR projections of ~1 feel about right to me. By comparison, DJ Stewart is projected at 0.8 by Depth Charts to Adam Jones' 1.2. They're both likely to be below average, I don't see the point in paying money to play the below average 34 year old on an awful team.

    Adam Jones returning? Unlikely, but would it be bad?

    Outfield arms aren’t very important to me. Also, Jones doesn’t do anything well anymore. That includes throwing.

    I’d rather just play Stewart. He’s younger, cheaper, and he may even be better at this point.

    Your Cash is No Good at Tropicana Field

    I know this is where everything will eventually be going, but it seems like this shouldn’t be the kind of venue on the bleeding edge of cashless society. That seems kind of silly. I say this as someone who hasn’t carried cash since like 1998.

    Congratulations, Moose!

    No argument there.

    Congratulations, Moose!

    No disrespect intended. The guy is easily the best reliever of my lifetime. I just don't the think the greatest baseball players ever are relievers. He became a reliever by not being good enough to start. I think WAR adequately assesses value and penalizes relievers fairly for the limited value their position provides. The same way it adjusts for every other position.

    Congratulations, Moose!

    I said I didn't believe Pettite was Hall worthy.

    Congratulations, Moose!

    I'll take the guy who threw 2000 more innings, around 30 more fWAR, 5 more rWAR and higher JAWS.
