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...

    • 😅 🦄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.
