If he can stay healthy and pitch well over the next month, maybe they can move him.  But he needs to prove that he can stay healthy.

That shouldnt be a worry here, this FO isn't moving anybody, in spite of what OPs want.

If that happens, it would be a sports management catastrophe of epic proportions.  That O's, even the O's, can't be THAT stupid.  Right?  RIGHT?!?!?!?!

Looking over the blunder of mistakes that King Peter has made over the years, and sadly yes, they could be that stupid.

The O’s have traded plenty of guys away in years when they were out of it, and I fully expect them to do so.   What they’ll get in return is another story.

Sure.    In 2000, we traded Will Clark, Mike Bordick, Mike Timlin, BJ Surhoff and Charles Johnson.   In 2001, we traded Mike Tromblay.  In 2003 we traded Sidney Ponson, who was having his best year.  In 2009, we traded George Sherill.   In 2010, we traded Miguel Tejada and Will Ohman.  In 2011, we traded Koji Uehara and Derrek Lee.   All those were July trades; there were a bunch of other guys we traded in August like Greg Zaun, Steve Trachsel, Aubrey Huff and others.

I'm not advocating we do this at deadline but Bundy is someone we need to think about this winter in a Bedard like return.

I’m fine with shopping Bundy, but by no means do I expect a Bedard-like return.   At the time, Bedard had a career ERA+ of 118, and he was coming off back-to-back seasons of 120 and 146.    And, that winter there was a severe shortage of good pitchers on the FA market.    Bundy has a career ERA+ of 105, 108 this season.   He’s not comparable.   

That said, I don’t mind seeing what’s available for him.

Damned good outing from O’Day last night.   He came in with the winning run on 3B and only one out and got a key strikeout and then a harmless pop out after an intentional walk to the immortal Ryan Flaherty, then pitched a scoreless 10th inning.    ERA to 2.70.

So no one was watching but O'day has now had two balks called against him in the last 10 years of his major league career, both in the last two years and both by the same umpire.

Last night the backlash called after the pitch was delivered, after the batter had swung and popped up the ball, and after the ball was caught.

The balk call was a "no stop" ball call and the replay clearly shows O'day came to a complete stop.  This one didn't affect the outcome of the game but its worth monitoring in the future if for nothing else than entertainment.

Pretty sure we can blame the guy yelling Balk!.

Have never understood the need for the balk rule.

Its amazing that  "Balk a day" Bob Davidson never called a balk on O'Day  but now you have an ump that's called 2 in 1 yr on a guy that's never had any.

The umpiring last night was awful. Squeezing Cashner multiple times in a row. Also initially called a foul tip on a ball in the dirt that was close to impossible to hit. While I thought it was a strike, they want on to overturn it after a conference with no replay. Seemed like a bad overturn even if the result was right. Just made you think they didn't know what they were doing.

    • You have called Mike Elias a liar several times in your posts in the past few days. You have repeatedly said this was a bad decision. You are entitled to your opinion, as we all are. Despite several posters trying to explain the logic to you intelligently, you remain steadfast in your criticism and that any opinion you do not share is not legitimate. The opinion of 30 major league teams is that he is not worth his projected arbitration salary. Is that legitimate?  I am done. We have beat this to death. Down arrow me again, I dig it. I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I think we should argue with other people for a while. I need space. 😂 
    • I'd like the see the quote where Elias said that ownership was not allowed him to spend for Cozart  or anyone else.  The context would be interesting. Its isn't happening because its not part of Elias' rebuild model which is similar to the Astros.     Spending is part of your desired model.  I understand that.  But Elias is building a talent base first with young cheap players.  He will spend when its time to compete and he has holes. Right now he is still waiting on Adley.  He needs at better 2B and 3B and better starting pitching to compete the way he wants to in the future.   This stuff in coming but it not here yet.  Rodriguez, DL Hall, Gunnar, Westburg.   They are all part of Elias' plan.  And those guys will be cheap for a while.   I doubt seriously that ownership told Elias to cut Nunez.   Its more likely that Elias wants to develop Santander, Mullins, Hays, Diaz, and Mountcastle  to be part of the next contending team and needs the at bats to accomplish that.
    • Saying there hasn’t been evidence is just wrong. They values saved money over quality back in the 2018 deals. Elias essentially came out and said ownership wouldn’t allow the deal the Angels and Giants did where the Giants bought a prospect to take on Cozarts deal.  Elias said he would like to do something like that but basically isn’t allowed. And you absolutely can still spend money when you are rebuilding.  You don’t do it poorly of course but there are plenty of opportunities out there that isn’t happening and I don’t believe for a second Elias would be letting those deals go by if ownership allowed him to do what he wants.
    • Its appear your hatred for the Angelos family is impairing your judgement.  There is no evidence that ownership is holding back Elias spending.  What has happened over the last two years is just what happened in 2012-13 with the Astros rebuild.  First tear down.  Trade establish players for prospects.  Then build back with younger, cheaper players.  It was not until year 3 that they spent 30m on Scott Feldman.   Of course the Astros did not have to content with Davis' huge contract nor the loss of revenue from a pandemic.    We really have not reached the point where ownership should be spending in the rebuild.  But its coming.
    • I never said he’s an idiot. I also said I don’t believe it’s his decision. It’s the cheap ass ownership group that we unfortunately have to deal with.  I do think Elias is giving us GM speak as to reasoning why the decision was made.  Seeing as every single GM in the history of time does this, it’s not a leap to say this.
    • I think I first read the “Mauer with Power” line in Sports Illustrated’s Spring 2010 baseball issue, the year after Wieters debuted.  But the article said he’d been called that in the past, before Mauer hit 28 homers in 2009. https://www.google.com/amp/s/vault.si.com/.amp/vault/2010/03/15/the-total-package-rare-bird
    • Half the teams do, and half don’t, as I documented yesterday.   The O’s didn’t have a primary DH this year; last year they did.   It just depends on a team’s personnel at the time.
