  1. I think Davis will be given spring training and the first month of the season. Once Mountcastle passes the service time date Davis will be DFA’d.
  2. My only problem is that we had outfield at-bats to give and we chose not to. bad evaluation 1. last minute trade for Dwight Smith Jr 2. signing of Keon Broxton 3. conversion of infielder Stevie Wilkerson 4. callup of Santander when he had posted mediocre AAA stats
  3. I'll probably bump this thread after the last few weeks of stats come in, but you can kiss these 5 goodbye no matter what they do from here on out. Mark Trumbo Chris Davis Ty Blach Tayler Scott Aaron Brooks
  4. I probably blame Duquette’s regime more actually. Elias just took over and was presumably still in player evaluation mode. Holders from Duquette’s era said Yaz is nothing. Same with Means. They never thought anything of their of them. And the thing is, we had OF at-bats to give. Maybe just because I pay most attention with to the Orioles but I feel like they often over-evaluate and under-evaluate what they have frequently.
  5. Everyone is using the same ball. Yaz with a 121 OPS+ and a .307 BABIP.
  6. Will Cumberland get added to the 40-man to be protected from Rule V?
  7. I’m not sure your point. It was a bad trade. We had outfield at-bats to give(late trade for Dwight Smith Jr, conversion of infielder Stevie Wilkerson to outfield, mid-season trade for Keon Broxton with a 50% K rate) and Yaz did pretty well in Norfolk last year. Ball is juiced but he’s performing well above league average with actually better splits against LHP. And Herb is in Bowie at age 27. We got rid of our crap for their crap and our crap turned out to be the best outfielder we would have had this year.
  8. his time in the majors will come when he’s earned his way to the majors
  9. He’s “been hurt” for 2 years. If he’s healthy he’ll show it in Norfolk next year
  10. Nope. OBP can’t even crack .300 in AAA with a juiced ball
  11. Hays hasn’t done anything but get injured and underperform since 2017. Mountcastle can wait. No interest in seeing any more of Trumbo, Petersen, or Davis. Wouldn’t be surprised if Williams could give you David Lough like numbers but what’s the point? Not really a logjam. Wouldn’t mind a 1 year signing of like Jarrod Dyson until Hays/Mullins/McKenna figure it out.
  12. Funny that the last comment was from me ^ Came across Joe Gunkel's page on BR and is it just me or does Gunkel look like a carbon copy of Darren O'Day? https://images.app.goo.gl/9HFgMgF4FwXdYofg8 https://images.app.goo.gl/CPovgdy8tJLtJ9ez7
  13. Not to mention he never should have gave up any runs (earned) in the first place. Wilkerson let a pop up drop that would have been caught by any natural center fielder. Miscommunications don’t count as errors though. He also doesn’t seem to be dealing with the healthiest of arms either - 2 separate trips to IL?
  14. Not that we currently have anyone to replace them but I think Bundy and Wojo should head to the bullpen next year, if Wojo is even on the team. He's the one waiver wire pickup that has shown anything out of Brooks, Eshelman, Scott, Shepherd (all of whom will most defintely be DFA'd)
