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! ;)

    • One of BP's eyewitness guys ventured a "looks like Jered Weaver" comp on him, and tagged his windup as slow and deliberate, not that TTTP is as much of an organizational priority anymore.
    • If you told me my CF played elite defense, hit 25 dingers and had 40 SB I would say that's pretty spectacular.  List the guys who have done that in the last ten years. That said, I think he could end up being a weak version of a player Elias had in Hou, Jake Marisnick.
    • At the end of the day, you will most likely be disappointed with whatever the actual result is in the next signing period. I don't say that as a slight to you, really, just that there will still be a disparity between what actually occurs in their first actual year of entering this market and what we envision is possible. But whatever they do, it looks like it will clearly be the MOST they've done EVER. It doesn't mean it will be effective in terms of that turning into ML talent. But the progress toward that goal will be noteworthy, and their international efforts should only improve from that point on. 
    • When I talk to people about this who dont think it's a problem I always ask them if they are a parent, and what they would think if their son/daughter and a friend came home with a test.  The test is a ten question test and the friend got 7/10 questions right while their son/daughter got 8/10.  However when asked what the grade is the son/daughter got a B while the friend got an A.  That's major league baseball. And the analogy usually works to show people the absurdity of what has been deemed a competitively balanced system. Large market teams simply can make more mistakes and end up with better results. The Boston Redsox won the WS last year with over $80 million in dead money (Sandoval, Craig, Rusney Castillo).  That was more dead money than 4 teams were paying their entire payroll.
    • They only play the Yankees 8 more times all year, so that will help them not make it to 115 losses.  Hopefully they will have some opponents over the rest of the year that don't intimidate them as easily as the Yankees do.  Just imagine how badly New York would be beating the Os if they actually had even a reasonably healthy team.
    • The way this team is looking, they just might lose more than 115 games. Hard to imagine, but they'll probably be even worse in July, if they trade Mancini.
    • But he didn't call out Jones or Schoop.
