Mark Ingram deal 'close'

Recommended Posts

I am warming up to Ingram.  He would be the best RB they have had since Ray Rice.  I'd rather have Bell due to age.  I guess if Ingram is close Bell is choosing the Jets or Raiders.

Is there a limit to how many RBs you can play on the field at one time?   I feel like we may try to push that limit.  Let's draft more on top of Ingram!

If DeCosta signs Ingram I will know he is in over his head. Edwards and Dixon are fine, and draft someone. Save your powder for bigger needs.

After watching him let the defense exodus I was kinda hoping for a rebuild. 

We are not winning anyway. 

Get all the comp picks and draft Oline 

Let the cap underage drag over

Sounds like Ingram getting 8 million .. at that price, just go to 12 for Bell. Or go a little cheaper with Tevin Coleman.

3 is the limit. You need a QB , 5 linemen and two other guys to cover the linemen.  They could play the wishbone.

The Ravens want an upgrade from what they have. They believed Bell would be and I guess believe Ingram will also. Tevin Coleman is a nice 3rd down guy that struggled when he was forced to be the starter due to injury.

Listened to some of Norris and Long on the commute in today and they reported from I think Schefter that the Ravens never even made an offer to Bell.

So I don't think we can say they ever were considering him.

I mean, this has been the Ravens MO for a long, long time.  Let the other teams outbid each other for the top tier guys, while we look for value.  So we probably shouldn't be too shocked.

Yes

Despite speculation that Baltimore was involved in the talks and bidding, the Ravens never made an offer for running back Le’Veon Bell, per source.

Great an old running back in decline.  I would rather they sign nobody. 

Super usual a statement without any warrants.  I'll give you old but until you show me facts, I wont buy the "in decline tag."  The fact is he has less carries than most RBs would be at his age.

Ingram has 1321 attempts in his career, his ypc has remained average for about 5 years. 

For comparison, doug martin and Lamar miller who were drafted the year after have more carries.

Yards per carry

2016: 5.1

2017: 4.9

2018: 4.7

He also average 14 yards receiving per game last year.

    • 😅 🦄Richie Martin: FIRST BIG FLY BABAAAAAYYYY. Get 'em Richie. And off CC no less. Tacked on another single while he was at it.    Renato Nunez: Smacked a curveball into the CF seats for a 2-run shot. Got them back in the game. Alas, it was not enough to spur a rally. He did walk in this one, too, which is probably a good sign for that slump.    Hanser Alberto: RBI double. Hanser's line against LHP? .426/.426/.617/1.043  😳   Gabriel Ynoa: I'll give him some credit for pitching 2.1 and giving up just the 1 ER. It's an improvement based on his recent games. The team really needs him to give some quality long relief innings, and this basically counts. Not ready to give up on Ynoa yet.    🦄Branden Kline: Nice outing! He hit 98! Branden is hanging in there at the ML level and that's great. Maybe one of the more underrated good things to happen on the team this year. He still needs more innings before we can make a call, but he tossed 1.2 scoreless innings in this one against a potent lineup, and got 2 Ks. You know what? Unicorn for Branden.    Shawn Armstrong: LOL Mariners. It never gets old. 0.96 ERA since coming over.    Brandon Hyde: Proved he is not just Mr. Positivity. Did not mince words after this one. I would normally say Straily should be worried, but Hyde repeated that this is what they got. But he's not going to sit there and brush it all off - he voiced some displeasure and I applaud that. It's getting silly out there.    Mike Elias: Great interview recently which, if you've been feeling a little beat down lately, should provide some pep in your step. The win-loss record is what it is, but good things are percolating in the minors and in the front office. Stay the course!   Errors: 0   Yankees: Didn't score the last 4 innings of this one, at least. 
    • OK so let's ask the unspoken question that Elias will never openly admit to. Stewart started his ML clock last September, playing in 17 games. Taking that into account, how much longer does he need to stay down in Norfolk for us to get the extra year?     It shouldn't be much longer right?
    • 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.
