Recommended Posts

https://www.mlbdailydish.com/2019/4/5/18297337/orioles-sign-dan-straily-to-major-league-contract-per-source

*********************************************

Just released by the Marlins. 

30 yr old SP, 4.12 ERA last year in 122 IP. 

I'd certainly take this guy to chew innings. $5 M thru 2019 - not clear if Marlins would be on the hook or if we have to claim him.

Made 33 starts in 2017, good for 181 IP. 

This seems like a no brainer to me, but I'm still not clear if we'd have to sign him or claim him.

If we claim him I imagine we're on the hook for the rest of his salary.   Which still seems pretty cheap.

But I mean............

We also weren't willing to offer Gio Gonzalez a $3M contract apparently so............................I doubt we will be in on this, despite how much sense it seems to make.

Well that's certainly a good point. The "released" phrasing makes me think we'd just have to sign him for the minimum, but I'm not sure. Let's see what the MLBTR article says.

Gio has more question marks about his future, than the Strally, who is 3 years younger.

If Gio's already degrading, what would be left for him in 2 to 3 years? This team doesn't need somebody for 1 to 2 years.

Gio was worth over 2 WAR last year.   That is insane value for $3M.    If you're a rebuilding team..........imagine what you can with an insanely undervalued asset.......... that's worth at least $20M in extra international signing slots!

fangraphs is not too bullish on him:

Quote

Profile: 2017 seemed a bit off with a 1.50 point separation between Gio Gonzalez's ERA and SIERA despite a near two-point drop in fastball velocity, and 2018 served Gonzalez a plate of regression that is sure to discourage many for the upcoming year. Gonzalez's walk rate soared over 10% for the first time in eight years, his strikeout rate fell under 20% for the first time, and his 1.44 WHIP was its highest since 2009. His repertoire suffered greatly from a huge step back in his curveball, a pitch that routinely earned swings-and-misses held just a 9% swinging-strike rate last year, forcing Gonzalez to turn to his decent changeup more often as a put-away pitch. Without that big hook in his back-pocket, it will be tough for Gonzalez to return quality innings with a sub 90mph fastball and middling changeup and we may see Gonzalez go the way of James Shields and Ubaldo Jimenez shortly.

I can certainly accept that there are advanced metrics showing that Gio is trending in the wrong direction.

And then I see Mike Wright.    

If I were betting which player is more likely to provide more value for 2019.......I know where I'm placing my bet.   If we had 5 better options than Gio / Straily then I would likely not care nearly as much.

Seems like a no brainer to claim him and DFA Wright...

    • Me neither. I think I understand Elias's overall plan and the decisions not to promote our best prospects yet, as painful as the consequences may be at around 9 or 10 pm on many nights and on Sunday afternoons.  But where is the organization on Sisco? Despite his unimpressive performance in ML two call-ups, I don't think anyone questions that his offensive potential should earn him a long look at hitting major league pitching but for the doubts as to whether he will be able to catch major league pitching well enough to be the receiver (even a backup) on an Oriole team that's striving to improve and move toward contention. Sisco has been in the Orioles system since 2013. He has had five full seasons, and parts of two others, in which he's played over 400 MiL games, and 65 with the Orioles, all of them at catcher (plus a few games DHing). He's 24 and should be entering his prime years, and catchers often wear down and wear out faster than other position players. It seems to me that should be plenty of time to decide whether Sisco is or isn't going to be good enough defensively to be a major league catcher. (Even if the answer is yes, the Orioles might regard him as only good enough defensively to hold down the position for a couple of years while the team stinks, but should be thought of as keeping the catcher's box warm for Adley Rutschman or someone else we haven't yet heard of.) I have read a lot of comments about whether Sisco is or isn't improving defensively, or whether that's a hopeless task. I'm pretty sure there have been no steps taken to try Sisco at a less challenging position to get his bat in the lineup (third base would seem to be the logical choice, and there's not exactly a talent logjam there), but I don't know whether that means Elias has decided Chance can be the catcher on an improving team or is just letting the experiment  continue.  If someone out there has some information or insight on the Elias regime's views of Sisco's defense and future, I'd really like to hear about it.        
    • One of my favorites.  Really made me sad to see him end up in Boston.
    • Yeah, injuries derailed Loewen as well. As you mentioned, the expectations on our end as fans were just unreasonable.  That why depth is so important, because the odds are that most of these guys aren't going to work out.  It's also why I'm really following Means closely, because if he turns into even a back-end rotation starter that's a huge development.  You need some of these "out-of-nowhere" guys as well.
    • Well, you brought up a few moments of stupidity.  I feel like there are more.   If the goal is to get this team trained up and developed, part of that has to be situational awareness and having your players know what to do.  
    • 16,457 last night. Thank God for Yankee fans. 😀 Probably a little more tonight. Thursday should be one of the bigger crowds of the year.
    • The thing is Bordick is pretty honest when I have heard him on the radio not doing a broadcast. He gets with Hunter and they turn into the Lollypop Club.Also do they get paid on how many times an inning they mention Hyde and the coaches.Hyde loves their resilience. Hyde let them read the Bob Feller plaque about hard work and a long season.The players before the game are working hard with the coaches People don't realize the effort they put in.They watch videos and the coach who works with the catchers is the best.As opposed to the prior bench coach who worked with the catchers who was the best Not sure why other teams have coaches who dont coach.This coaching thing and managing are only done in Baltimore.
