O's have reached out to Swisher's agent

Recommended Posts

Probably not newsworthy (we've probably checked in with everyone), but it doesn't seem like much else is going on before the Winter Meetings. Figured I might as well throw out this nugget.

This is gonna be the guy taking Reynolds spot I would guess. He can play 1b and LF. It doesn't get much better than that for us. He can potentially take up either hole in the field right now.

No? You say no just that easy? Swisher is not a sexy name, he's not superstar but he's one of most consistent guys around here. Yeah, he was kind of useless against Baltimore in playoffs but you have to make playoffs first. Swisher helps to your team to accomplished that. You know he's going to give you terrific production every season. I just wonder how capable he's at first base?

This all day. I'd take him in a heartbeat. If he was wearing an Orioles uniform I'd love that smirk.

On top of everything else I liked his interview too. I liked his comments about being excited to be a Dad for the first time.

The thought of Swisher in the Oriole clubhouse makes my skin crawl. I don't know how I'd feel if it actually happened and he was productive and helped the O's win some games but on the surface it makes me cringe.

I'm already in a mood because I wanted Reynolds back. Hearing they have interest in Swisher makes me want to barf.

Yeah obviously I just want them to win but man, I just don't think I could stomach this.

We sign him---bet he has a CWS year..... Let's see--4 years older than Reynolds and almost twice as expensive. Worst of all though is that dam Yankee smirk.........

4 teams need a 1B: BOS, CLE, TB, and O's. BOS will sign either Swisher or LaRoche. Reynolds will go to either TB or CLE IMO. If CLE trains in AZ then I bet it's them. The O's will get Davis.

    • This kid got a lot of hype from Matt Blood and others during the offseason.   He lived up to it in his first outing at Bowie today: 4.2 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 7 K’s.  47 of 72 pitches for strikes.  
    • Louisville beat Vanderbilt on Tuesday. Henry Davis went 2-4 with a HR. He's now hitting .403/.520/.683 with 10 HR, 9 2B, 38 RBI, 29 walks and 15 strikeouts. He's also stolen 10 bases in 12 attempts. Callis just did an updated mock draft. Here's the top 6: 1. Pirates: Jordan Lawlar, SS, Jesuit Prep (Dallas) As a five-tool high school shortstop from the Dallas area, Lawlar draws comparisons to Bobby Witt Jr. (No. 2 to the Royals in 2019), who had louder tools but a less polished bat at the same stage of their careers.   2. Rangers: Jack Leiter, RHP, Vanderbilt After taking college baseball by storm with a no-hitter in his first Southeastern Conference start and seven no-hit innings in his second, Leiter has surrendered eight homers in the last three weeks as scouts wonder how he'll hold up under by far the biggest workload he's ever had. 3. Tigers: Marcelo Mayer, SS, Eastlake HS (Chula Vista, Calif.) He might be relatively anonymous compared to the other top-tier talents, but Mayer has the upside of a Corey Seager bat with a Brandon Crawford glove. 4. Red Sox: Kumar Rocker, RHP, Vanderbilt Rocker's velocity dipped into the low 90s for three weeks early in the season but the Draft's most physical pitcher has performed consistently well and outperformed Leiter. 6. D-backs: Henry Davis, C, Louisville In a down year for college bats, Davis is perhaps the only preseason projected first-rounder in that group to exceed expectations, batting .403/.520/.683 with more walks (29) and extra-base hits (19) than strikeouts (15) while continuing to display plus-plus arm strength. https://www.mlb.com/news/mock-mlb-draft-2021-may-5?t=mlb-pipeline-coverage  
    • I just got through MLB Network's coverage, and they had a Brad Radke 27-for-28 graphic.    The first pitch strikes were a fantastic part of the whole performance!
    • Career OPS is .733, with a .778 last year and he's posting a .653.   OPS+ is 86 compared to 94 career. Rfield of -2 indicates below average fielding, total  bWAR of 0.1 suggested he just slightly above replacement level.  Its still early, he does pass the eye test for me and has been pretty good situation hitter, but if those #s hold its disappointing for any FA 3B even one we signed for only $800k. 
    • Will this be replayed on Masn tonight?   If anyone knows?    Work got in the way today and I completely forgot a game was on.   My buddy messaged me in the 9th.   But it was too late.   Regardless, so happy for Means and the O’s!
    • I want to know why it was a wild pitch instead of a passed ball. I watch that play several times and there’s no way it should’ve gotten away from Severino.  
    • Here's my question. If there's a game where no batter reaches base for 10 innings, and the only player to "reach" base is the ghost runner in the 10th, is it a perfect game, assuming the pitcher pitches all 10 innings? Just another reason to get rid of that abomination.
