Thread: Gregg possibly to DL ??
04-27-2012 04:49 PM #31
The amount paid to Mr. Gregg every game. I was all on board with helping build his trade value and move him at the deadline. I even suggested several moves where the Orioles could possibly save $1.5M, but those moves seem like a pipe dream now. We can continue to go with a 24 man roster (since Gregg doesn't pitch), or add $480K to the payroll to add a 7th bullpen pitcher (Unless that pitcher is Bergesen or Eveland, who are both on the payroll for somewhere around $1.5M combined)...

You know, in Roch's latest post on MASN, he only says that Gregg won't go on the DL. He doesn't even seem to entertain the thought that Gregg could be released - he only seems to be speaking strictly about the DL. So maybe there's a surprise left here after all. Probably not, but you never know.

At this point, Gregg is basically a wasted roster spot and is only going to be used in meaningless mop up situations. Any player with balls, or an ounce of self-esteem, would be demanding a trade or his release. Anger should be a motivator, but Gregg seems to be content just hanging out in the BP collecting that $35K a game that someone mentioned. His continued presence is basically a self-inflicted deficiency for the Orioles. Is refusing to simply cut Gregg and taking the financial hit further proof that money is more important than winning for the Orioles?
I would also ask the same questions about Nick Johnson. He looks done....offensively and defensively.

OK, Gregg may be an awful pitcher, but I doubt that he doesn't know how just about everyone feels about him.
He has to know how much all of the Oriole fans hate him, how much Buck wishes he wasn't on the team anymore, and probably even that a bunch of his teammates don't want him there anymore, either (I'm not saying that they would publicly admit this, but you have to think that the starting pitchers in particular cringe when thinking of the idea of Gregg coming into a close game in which they started). Man, I'll bet that even he (Gregg) just kind of wishes that they would cut him already so he could, at long last, stop being the whipping boy of this team.
It reminds me somewhat of Dave Trembley's last month as our manager. That must have been an awful month for him, twisting and turning, waiting (perhaps even hoping) that the axe would just fall already.

Berken was optioned. So much for the intrigue.

There are plenty of legitimate reasons to dislike Gregg as it is. You don't need to make things up.
