2013-2014 Orioles Off-Season Moves Tracker

Recommended Posts

Valencia traded away, Lough added in trade with Kansas City.

SP Wada signed by Chicago Cubs

RP McCutchen signed with Texas

OF Xavier Paul added from Cincinnati

RHRP Fabio Castillo added from San Francisco

MI Ivan De Jesus Jr. added from Pittsburgh

I like De Jesus (more than Weeks), maybe he'll have a shot as our utility guy off the bench.

C Chris Snyder signs with the Nats.

I liked Chris Snyder, not sure what holes he had. We sure are picky with our backup catchers...

Once again this year, I'll be tracking all the player additions and losses in the Orioles organization. We've already had a couple reported.

LOSSES:

Minor League Free Agency:

- Stu Pomeranz

I wonder how this guy is doing? I sure would like to see him again if he's healthy.

Looking at that opening post just makes me want to puke.

Two years in a row that Duke has had miserable offseasons, and actually, this one is making 2012 look good! :puke:

Andino was on Seattle last year, wasn't he? Did we get him back somehow? Not sure that this would be considered as a transaction for this thread.

    • Davis would say, "Thank you", and happily sit on the bench for $141,975 per game and eat sunflower seeds, then go home to his children and wife and enjoy his extravagant lifestyle. I mean, if he could not show up at the park at all, that would be even better as it'd save him several hours out of the day, and he could spend those hours with his kids or playing video games or something. But, eh, for $141,975, pretty much any human being would happily spend 4 to 8 hours at a baseball park, occasionally working out and taking batting practice and eating sunflower seeds.
    • I would consider them Top 100.  I was referring to a few of the others, though not a knock on their skill level either. I regret not being more specific. 
    • The second one is my area code.  
    • This has to be one of the most pathetic and disappointing games I've seen the Orioles play all season. Zero effort. How do you lose 11-1 to a pitcher as bad as Covey? How does Cobb, a guy we went out and acquired in FA, a starter we wanted to improve our rotation, basically give us an Ubaldo performance? If we keep getting terrible FA acquisitions and our tenured guys like Davis put in zero effort because they're guaranteed money, this team is not going to have a winning season again for like a decade. And they deserve every boo and criticism levied their way for it. All I can say is I hope Karma catches up to these players and management and that they suffer consequences for what they're putting Baltimore fans through, now and for the next several seasons at minimum.
    • The writing is pretty much on the wall.  I looked at Moose's "effort" post and was reminded of how many times over the years Jonesy's effort got this team wins.  No he's not a good CF - that's due to a lack of range, not effort.  He wants a World Series win real bad.  And it ain't happening here. The Orioles should give him the courtesy of a trade.  They won't get that much in return.  But they have to get all they can as part of a rebuild this season if they want to keep the upcoming losing years (plural) to a minimum. I will root for Jonesy on another team, because I am a big fan of his.  Unless.... it's the Yanks, Sawx, or Jays.  It makes me wonder which teams can use him for a playoff run, and I'd like the board's thoughts on the matter. Of course this all depends on the front office being competent enough to trade their veterans.  I would just like some hypotheticals.
    • 7.32, 7.03, 5.56, 7.56.  Those are the ERAs of the 4 O's pitcher's that pitched tonight (5/23/18).  And of course until recently we had a pitcher who pitched for us with an even worse ERA (10.46 by Tillman!).  Truly  pathetic.
    • Due to my age, I've never really gotten to experience a truly great Oriole. By the time I was old enough to watch intelligently, Ripken was a veteran with a bad back who missed games and often struggled. I only got to see a few seasons of Mussina before he was off to pinstripes.  The best Orioles baseball that I've really gotten to experience is a Brian Roberts, Erik Bedard, Melvin Mora type of player. So, my random thought is about how I am that guy who didn't see a movie, but nods and smiles when you all talk about players like Brooks.
