Ryan Flaherty has to go.

Recommended Posts

No, but he does look awful right now. He's getting a day off Sunday. Hopefully, this doesn't snowball on him.

Anyone Else sick of watching this clown?

If you want to discuss Flaherty's poor start be our guest, but it's a violation of our board rules to call player names. Yes, Flaherty has struggled so far in all of two games. Clearly he must be terrible. :rolleyes:

It's early but Flaherty does look awful. Although Reimold and Hardy aren't much better as the bottom of the order is struggling without Roberts.

This is Flaherty's shot to prove he deserves consistent playing time. Can't afford to see him pull a Nick Johnson in starting the season off slowly...

I'm just excited Roberts will be coming back at some point this season.

Just hope it's permanent so he can replace Flaherty on a daily basis.

I have very little faith in Flaherty, and it's not just because of 2 games to start this year.

Hopefully he will prove us all wrong, but I just don't see it.

I would like to see Casilla get a shot for a couple of games. With a 3 man bench it might be better to use Ryan as a bench player because of his versatility.

I was suprised that Buck didn't bring in Casilla to field in the 9th. Also suprised he didn't pinch hit Pearce for Mclouth in the 9th too. I don't like Flaherty as a regular at second but I think his bat will come around.

I'd give Flaherty more time, especially because were w/o Roberts and we don't really seem to have a sizable upgrade. He came around last year, hopefully this year he can make the adjustments much quicker. If he is a complete disaster we won't need to find someone that good (ie. Casilla) to have an upgrade.

Flaherty can look real bad when he isnt going good. Got to get his bat going.

How often is his bat going to be going though? Is it worth the wait? What exactly does everyone see in a guy who seems to below average at everything except the occasional homer? He hasn't shown the ability to field, hasn't shown the ability to run, hasn't shown the ability to get on base. His WAR was negative last year and he struck out over 7x more than he walked.

I admit I'm biased, my gut's just been against him from day 1. He's never struck me as anything more than AAAA/utility at best. But so far he hasn't done anything to disprove that. What's the harm in giving Schoop a chance to fail instead?

    • Seems just like the old SG to take a few quotes and then start bashing our FO and ownership for "dumb" things. IMO, the most telling quote in the link was also the one ME explained.  The revenue situation is uncertain.  ME is quoted as saying, "We can't estimate our revenue, our attendance ....  We can't estimate various things that we look at when we look at a player or roster budget."  In light of such uncertainty, it is quite a leap to say the FO is dumb for not pursuing a particular player - in this case, Stroman.  Most prudent, well-run businesses would operate in such as manner given the uncertainty. There are multiple ways to save $ with Chris Davis including his negotiating a settlement for possible retirement, a shortened season, etc.  All of these things are more important today than opening up Davis' roster spot.  Let's see what happens.  
    • Also, if we keep Cobb through the winter, we will need the spot for rule 5 protection.
    • It is a happy fact that I think the Orioles will be good enough next year that they won’t need him. They need good infield defense and he doesn’t provide that.
    • Some final defensive numbers: Rtot: +15 (6th in MLB) Rdrs: -3 (19th in MLB)  UZR: -5.4 (21st in MLB) Fangraphs defense: -4.4 (21st in MLB)  Fielding %: .980 (27th in MLB) Overall, a bit better than last year but below average unless you want to believe Rtot.

    • The first tiebreaker was division record, even though they played in different divisions.  I guess since all games were East vs East, Central vs Central, West vs West... Division record = league record. If that was tied then it was record in final 20 division (league) games. If that was tied then record in final 21 div games, the. 22, the n23, and so on. Kind of silly but those are the rules.  
    • The mound is 66’ 9” from second base.
