  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. Everyone is using the same ball. Yaz with a 121 OPS+ and a .307 BABIP.
  4. Will Cumberland get added to the 40-man to be protected from Rule V?
  5. 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.
  6. his time in the majors will come when he’s earned his way to the majors
  7. He’s “been hurt” for 2 years. If he’s healthy he’ll show it in Norfolk next year
  8. Nope. OBP can’t even crack .300 in AAA with a juiced ball
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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?
  12. 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)
  13. Bundy isn’t quite bad enough to be non-tendered and not quite good enough to build any value. He also appears out of shape - I seem to remember him looking pretty jacked when he came up in 2012. It sucks because no one from Norfolk is knocking on the door (only in Bowie) and the only locks for the 2020 rotation are Means & Cobb, but is it time to move Bundy to the bullpen after this season? Britton and Matusz carved out valuable roles in the pen...some pitchers just don’t have what it takes to be an MLB starter. Maybe Bundy is a surgery too late.
  14. Sorry if this has been answered or discussed, but are these 3 prospects strictly relief pitchers going forward? Was this transition due to health reasons or doubts they can consistently make it through the lineup multiple times? Or was their move to the bullpen more so due to the logjam in the Bowie rotation? Will Luis Ortiz suffer the same fate after this season?
  15. Dodgers are the same way. Urias in the bullpen. Stripling and Maeda often find themselves out there as well. They shipped out a very good pitcher in Alex Wood just to get Puig and Kemp off their hands.
