Roch: Caleb will not be back, "guaranteed"

Personally I think this is the right call. Best of luck to Caleb.

Pretty dismal list of FAs Roch put up. Ellis or Hundley will be cheap but old. Matt too expensive. The rest blah.

Is this like the time he guaranteed Loewen would stay?

He had previously been beating the drum all offseason that Caleb remained an option to be re-signed, so I wonder what changed to make Roch so sure here.

Similar Batters through 32

1. Chad Moeller (979.3)
2. Ray Katt (964.4)

...

7. Elrod Hendricks (959.5)

...

10. Raul Casanova (957.1)

 

Elrod left and came back.  Twice.  Who remembers Raul Casanova' Oriole career?  Two innings, one PA striking out for Geronimo Gil in the midst of the 4-32 run in '02.

I loved me some Paul Casanova back in day of the Senators.

One time I got to go into the Senators dugout before a game to get autographs.   I was 13.    I went in there, and Paul Casanova was in there smoking a cigarette.   That shocked me.    Then I asked for his autograph.   He said “sure, kid” and proceeded to stub his cigarette out  in his catcher’s mitt.  I was astounded that a professional athlete would treat his equipment that way.

When you make $20,000 in single season you can do whatever the heck you want.

I've had some conversations with him and he won't be back.

This list is missing Joe Nolan! You are slipping in your old age! ;)

    • I missed the last inning. Did Sucre provide demonstrative encouragement and critiques of his own pitches?
    • DJ Stewart should be up. He looked good last season and he is a better outfielder than Mancini.  Really I don't think management has a clue about baseball.

    • No pitchers with elite stuff, track record of performance, and desirable delivery/measurables. I think Lodolo is probably the top pitcher, I like him better than Singer last year, but doesn’t really have TOR upside, he’s 92-95 lefty with sink, slider, curveball, change. Throws strikes, lots of GBs, avg command. Slider is a new pitch and gives him a chance to miss more bats. Other potential top pitchers drafted are Alek Manoah who is an extra large human, 93-98, plus slider, developing change, has had command and consistency problems but has really improved as the season has progressed. Was pretty much projected as a reliever at the beginning of the year, but has shook that label.  Jackson Rutledge who is a JUCO guy with command issues but a huge frame and huge stuff, he’s t100, he’s kind of a Nate Pearson clone.  Zach Thompson who is a lefty who  was kind of falling down draft boards until he sat 94-96 this past weekend with a plus curveball. His stuff is so inconsistent, it’d be a hard sell for me before 20 overall. George Kirby who doesn’t have anything plus, but is polished, with a bunch of average to 55 grade pitches and potential above average command. Then my favorite, Seth Johnson, who has a best mechanics of them all IMO, converted SS, has pitched one year since middle school. 91-96 t98, plus slider, high spin curveball, change. Poor pitch-ability and below average command, but like I said he’s literally just started pitching. He could be 4 plus pitches with successful development. The lack of track record could be viewed as a plus or a minus.  Those are the top college arms, the high school class has depth but doesn’t have anyone I’d be excited about taking in the top 15 overall.
