Give Sisco another Chance

Recommended Posts

Here are some facts:

1. He stunk last year in his first full(ish) MLB season.

2. The O's stunk last year.

3. The O's will stink this year.

4. The O's have no obvious good catcher.

5. The O's have Mike Elias and a soon-to-be-hired team of data-wizards.

6. We have stated, as fans, that we hope said team data-magics some effectiveness into guys like Bundy, Mancini, even Chris Davis!

7. We should give them the same opportunity to do that with Sisco.

8. It makes sense to let him work out issues in the bigs since we will a) be very bad anyway and b) already started his clock, and c) he has shown some interesting flashes at times. 

I blasted him pretty bad at times last year but I'm not ready to give up just yet. Non-tender Joseph, go with Sisco, Wynns, and maybe Cervenka later. Don't sign a veteran catcher.

If I am Elias I would talking to Cobb, Bundy, Cashner and Givens about who calls a good game.  I am sure they have opinions.   Then make a decision on whether to tender Joseph.   Right now Joseph, Wynns,  Sisco and Susac are all on the 40 man roster.   Cervenka is going unprotected into the Rule 5 draft.   We will know a lot more about what is happening with the O's catching after the Rule 5 draft is completed.  Its premature to say where Sisco should start the season.

Isn't framing more important than pitch calling?

Framing is only useful when the pitchers actually get the ball near the plate. 

Pitch calling is only useful when the pitchers actually execute the pitch.

 

Seriously, that was just me taking a shot at pitch framing.

Really,  Elias doesn't talk to  players?  He was a scouting director.  He talks to everyone.

He's not going to be asking a lot of opinions. That's for sure. He'll talk with them, when they are being signed.

How many organizations have you been in where the senior management has long talks about process with line workers?

Doesn't have to be a long talk.   Do you think MacPhail or Duquette never talked to their players?  Buck talked to them all the time.   Maybe Elias does not talk to them directly.  Maybe he has Brady or Graham does it.
