Severino = terrible D

Recommended Posts

By my count that’s 6 or 7 passed balls my sophomore son would’ve caught. Not skill either, just plain laziness. I know catching.... move your body laterally for Christ’s sake. Bring Holladay up already.

Some of the worst catching I've seen in a long time. Ben McDonald called it as he saw it. Just a bad night?  No ! Severino has trouble blocking pitches and has too many passed balls. I like Holoday defensively and he did a good job with Cobb against the Nationals. Bring him up and maybe we can get some offense out of him. Cisco is still in the picture.

I’ve been a Sisco fan and would gladly see him now.

I'm not convinced Sisco will ever be a full time catcher, but it's time to find out. Assuming Adley pans out it's still worth it to see if Sisco can be counted as the backup catcher. I don't want to ride Adley into the ground like Buck did with Wieters.

Sisco needs ABs to prove he can hit at the MLB level.  His his OBP numbers were interesting last year.  I think he has potential to be an .800 OPS.  If he can prove that this season while catching, we should look to expand his versatility next season.  Could he be a poor man's Zobrist?  Could he handle 3B, 2B, 1B, LF, and C?

All the time posters spent whining about Sisco's defense and here we are.

Sisco didn't get any better on defense tonight.

"Rio Ruiz struck out three times tonight. All the time posters have spent whining about Chris Davis and here we are!"

Sisco isn’t a catcher. He may be able to hit; his eye is improving and K and BB rates are each going in the right direction, but He’s not a catcher.

Only thing worse has been this umpire.

Rather see Sisco.

I'd rather see Sisco, too ........ if he were umpiring, the Orioles would have had a much better chance to win the game.

Did I say he did?

Did I say anything positive about Sisco's defense in this thread?  

I don't get the point of your post.

I think some posters will complain about just about anything. :) :) :)

    • Talk about "lack of imagination..." -- I'm talking about the ZiPS figures, not Szymborski or the Orioles. Hardly seems worth running the projections over five years if there's so little variation from year to year for each of those players. Maybe I'm just spoiled by wildly fluctuating careers in baseball sim games... or reality itself.
    • Wow, I'm shocked to see we're technically still in it. I basically called it done a couple of losses ago. But how could I forget, it ain't over till it's over! 6 games left, so basically the O's have been in contention for 90 percent of the season. Who'd a thunk?
    • The original intention is to stock up on international players which he’s also done. 
    • Well, we're up against it now.   Toronto beat the Yankees tonight.  There's now only one way the O's can make the playoffs: 1) Sweep the Red Sox 2) Toronto loses three to the Yankees the next three days 3) Seattle loses at least 2 games ([email protected], 4 vs Oak)*     *If Seattle goes 5-1 or better, we would still be OK if Houston loses at least 5 of their last 6 (2vsSea, 4 vs Tex) 4) Angels lose at least 1 more game (2 vs SD, 3 @Dodgers)
    • o   (vs. DEVIL RAYS, 9/21)   deGrom had 14 Strikeouts over 7 Inning Pitched tonight ...... but he was charged with a loss, as his Mets fell by a score of 2-1.   https://www.espn.com/mlb/boxscore?gameId=401226481   For the 2020 season overall, deGrom has a 2.14 ERA and an 0.921 WHIP.   o
    • “Keegan Akin started in the bullpen this year with the Baltimore Orioles but has since moved to the rotation. So far it has been paying off for the Orioles as the rookie has been nothing short of impressive. In four starts Akin has produced a 2.35 ERA, 1.62 FIP, 36.4 K%, and 15.5 SwStr%. What is even more impressive is who he put those numbers up against. In those four starts he has faced the Yankees twice, the Braves, and the Blue Jays. All very formidable offenses.  “The only issue with Akin besides the small sample size is that he lives in the zone a little too much. He has a low O-Swing% of 26.3% which means hitters aren’t chasing him outside of the zone. With command issues stemming from the minors he also might be hesitant to live outside the zone and risk walking too many hitters. This is definitely something we have to monitor.   “Akin’s main strength is his fastball which has above average movement in both vertical and horizontal movement. While it doesn’t have much velocity the movement of the pitch makes up for it. He also places it well trying to place it high in the zone as often as possible. That fastball is paired with a changeup that straight up fools hitters. It comes in 10 mph slower than his fastball with late vertical drop at the bottom of the zone. His changeup currently holds an impressive 20.3 SwStr%. “As for 2021 Akin will be an interesting pitcher to evaluate. A very small sample size alone puts a lot of this into question. But with what looks like a solid fastball/changeup combination he will be worth a shot towards the end of drafts.” https://fantasy.fangraphs.com/analyzing-rookie-pitchers-part-ii/
