2012: Grade the Player Exercise

Recommended Posts

Like last year, here is your chance to grade out and discuss each player on the roster for 2012. The grades should be given in consideration to the player's role, and not necessarily the players worth. In other words, Troy Patton could grade out higher than Wei-Yin Chen even though Chen was a more valuable pitcher but Patton may have more effective in his role.

This is a great place to posts stats, highlights and anything and will give us a good record to look back on in the future. Due to the late start, I will post three players a day and give each player two weeks to be voted on.

I'm fine with a late start. Hopefully we start this sometime in November next year! :)

As I said in multiple polling threads, I'm very shocked that only 2 of the core 5 relievers (JJ, O'Day, Strop, Ayala, Patton) got A's. In my mind, the bullpen's consistency was the number one contributing factor to the team's success in 2012 and I gave all 5 relievers with 50+ inning a grade of A in the polls. The bullpen wasn't great because of 2 men... it was great because of the consistency of all 5 plus a few others who chipped in when necessary.

    • I would rather have Mark Reynolds than Mark Trumbo.  30 HR & 97 RBI & 2.8 WAR is a lot better than Trumbo produced.  Do the O's have any international slot money they can trade?  I'm predicting Trumbo + international slot money + cash for a mediocre 5th starter and a non-prospect.
    • You may or may not be a lifelong O's fan. But if you love baseball, and love the O's, the Yankees losing the next best thing to the O's winning. Just a fact based in reality. If you claim to be an O's fan, and are ambivalent to the Yankees winning in the postseason while O's fans lick their wounds, and need to go read a book,  I suggest "Non-Chalant Sunflower Seed Eating: a Guidebook" with a forward by Mark Reynolds.        
    • I wouldn’t need to get anything back, Trumbo has negative value. Either you play him and hopefully he’s good enough to offload at the deadline or you send something of value with him to make the deal palatable to the other team.  Losing him won’t hurt the O’s competitiveness, hell for the money the team saves, they could sign Jarrod Dyson or Howie Kendrick. Both of which would make the team better.
    • Not even close to the Browns who have, literally, decades of losing. We’ve won two Super Bowls during that time. I’m not trying to defend the product on the field, but we are more on par with a team like the Chargers, maybe?  As we’ve seen, being a rich business man doesn’t mean that you’re necessarily good at anything besides being a business man. 😂 We’re stuck with Joe at least one more season for cap reasons, right? I say Harbaugh is gone after this year, but Ozzie stays at least as long as Joe. I still trust Ozzie since I think a lot of it is that he’s hamstrung by the Flacco contract, which was unavoidable at the time we signed him. One of these days, though, he’s going to need to draft a WR who doesn’t bust.
    • I like the thought but considering we plan on competing this coming season, it might not be the best idea to trade a (arguably) useful player to a team that is already better than us.  I'd personally do Trumbo for Holt in a heartbeat, though. 
    • With bacon and onions. Yes!
    • Looks like the Mets are going to hire Cleveland pitching coach Mickey Callaway as their new manager.
