Can we see Stewart, Cisco, Mountcastle instead of Martin, Severino, and Rickard?

Recommended Posts

No need to rush Mountcastle, even if the Orioles are struggling. The others are debatable. I'd be a little surprised if they are ready to give up on Martin though. I hoped they would get Iglesias for shortstop in the off-season.

Hard to break into the O's right now if you are a corner outfielder or a first baseman.  

I'd personally get rid of Alberto and have Wilkerson spell the infielders when one of them needs to sit.  That gets DJ up here.  Wilkerson could be playing 2B on a lot of days with Villar at SS.  The other option is to send down Rickard and just play Wilkerson everyday. I'm not necessarily against that.  They like Wilkerson's defense enough to play Rickard in RF on days they are both in the lineup. 

DFA'ing Davis in July when he's still hitting under .200 and OPS'ing under .600 could get Mountcastle up here. 

They probably want to give Wynns a longer look as the backup.  Severino isn't going anywhere.  Still expect to see Sisco up at some point.

Martin stays. He's the best defensive player on the team. Now, if only he'd learn to choke up on the bat a little bit.....

Still can't believe he signed for peanuts and we had no interest. I just can't with the Rule 5 thing anymore. It doesn't work. It's the same story every year.

I'm just salty after tonight's loss. I meant more in terms of the younger players starting to right the ship.

Rickard, Severino, Castro Down, Alberto DFA are three easy moves. I am openly sceptical of Sisco’s defense, but hell, why not try him out anyway. Stewart can come up and lumber around the OF. Can’t be worse then the slop we’re throwing out there now( and sadly I said the same thing last season. Our OF defense isn’t appreciably improved 😞 )

Agree. He’s not going anywhere especially because Villar at SS would require Wilkerson at 2B and make Rickard a full-time CF again, and no thanks.

The advanced fielding metrics on Martin don't agree that he is valuable with the glove.

So what? We don’t have any SS in the system, and Villar at SS would weaken both SS and 2B.

The so what is Martin can’t hit and is a mediocre at best fielding. He is only here until his replacement comes along via the farm system, trade or draft. He has been a disappointment.

I don’t argue with that at all, but we can’t get rid of him now because we don’t have anybody with whom to replace him.

    • I didn't care for his last two.  To me Morning Phase was going over the same ground Sea Change did and Colors sounded like someone following trends, not starting them. 
    • Agreed. Well past there prime / peak. In the 90s though I feel like they were probably a band that could sell out the 9:30 Club. 
    • It's hilarious how people keep pushing the Orioles' line that their was nothing worth signing when the teams we traded slot money found people they thought were worth signing.
    • Can someone help Interloper out here?  He's says I'm on record saying cheap international guys are "trash" and evidently not wanting the team to sign them.  I don't recall ever saying the O's shouldn't sign guys (unless you count me thinking Gaston was a likely bust). Did I ever make a post saying the that lower end signees were "trash" and that the O's shouldn't sign them?  Does anyone other than Interloper remember that happening?
    • I would agree with you about a typical wet behind the ears prospect, but I'm talking about Lowther.  Lowther seems to be an exceptionally bright pitcher who knows how to pitch.  In AAA, he would be learning to get AAA batters out.  AAA is loaded with older organizational type players who aren't good enough for the majors.  What works on them won't work on quality major leagues.  He needs to learn how to get major leaguers out, and I think the best - and perhaps only - way to do that is to face them.  At some point, ya gotta go through the trials of being a rookie, and I don't see the point in waiting in his case.  You guys call that rushing him; I disagree - fwiw.           
    • One reason would be keeping it so the team had more information about their financial flexibility as far as what they could offer than the player’s advisors/agents. Maintaining that information gap could be somewhat advantageous. The other being amplifying the PR campaign by announcing the core of the draft class all at once.
    • True, I’m trying to be aware of the rarity of a pitcher who throws cutters as their primary pitch making it though. I was also pretty disappointed that his velocity didn’t really tick up in relief last year, kinda screwed up the future profile I had in mind.
