Schoop over Flaherty?

Recommended Posts

No, Schoop will be sent down for service time issues unless he goes on an absolute tear and stops getting picked off at 2nd base.

Schoop isn't ready, or at least doesn't look like he should be up at this point.

You could say the same for Flaherty, the question is why did anyone ever think he was ready for MLB in the first place?

Minus his fall down and pick off Schoop is showing something with the bat. I think they both have the potential to get hot. Maybe it is happening today.

Schoop has two doubles. That pick off was a rookie mistake. That happens and it probably will never happen again to him. I am more worried that Flaherty is stressing so much that he's gonna be in a funk for 100 ABs. He has two singles. One being a bunt that should have been a sac but bad fielding.

Today is a laugher so far, the team needed a laugher. Against the Yankees it's ten times better.

Yes, yes it is. But I'll take it if the offense gets hot and stays hot for the next week.

Assuming Chen doesn't implode here. That would be the worst thing possible in the history of mankind to blow this lead.

Lombardozzi has clearly been the best option at 2B so far this season. However, it's only 8 games and a lot could change by the time Manny is ready to come back.

Who knows when Manny will be back. So far Schoop has done nothing to keep him up when and if Manny returns. But there seems to be plenty of time to change that. They'll keep Flaherty no matter what IMO. His defensive versatility is too useful.

Flaherty had some good AB's last game in Detroit and had a nice game today with two hits to LF, a lineout to the SS, and a beautiful bunt hit. Laying off the low breaking stuff too. Good signs.

    • I don't imagine Mason Williams will be able to play the next few days so we will probably get to see more of Hays on this homestand.
    • From a purely impersonal point of view, I agree with you.    But in the real world, guys who have been with the club most of the year and have made some contributions aren’t going to be completely cut off.    They’ll get tossed a bone here and there.     And yes, I realize that one can debate whether Smith or Wilkerson  “made some contributions.”    
    • It was intended as a wisecrack.    The mores of 1976 weren’t the same as today.    Believe me, Weaver said a lot worse.     As to Cuellar, I understand Weaver made the remark after Cuellar complained about not getting enough starts in 1976, a year in which he went 4-13 with a 4.96 ERA (66 ERA+).    To me it was just Weaver’s colorful way of saying that he felt he’d given Cuellar plenty of chances that year.    Not a comment on Cuellar’s overall performance during his career.    And my point in quoting Weaver was that Cuellar got a lot more chances that year than a pitcher without his track record would have gotten.     Even Earl Weaver believed that a guy who had earned it over a long period of time deserved some rope.   Buck was far from alone in that regard.   
    • They have to many players on the team.  I think they should be evaluating the guys who need evaluating.  I think we can close the book on Smith and Wilkerson.
    • I would keep Villar.  He is a good major league player.  We have too few of them to give them away.
    • It was a cheap shot on his first wife as well.
    • I haven't done the full 40-man eval but I'd protect him over the other guys you listed. Would the plus curve and the slider that is more slurrvy, I think he's got a pretty good chance of being a solid bullpen arm. From July to the end of the year batters slashed .147/.284/.206/.490 off him with a 0.47 ERA over 19.1 IP with 22 Ks and 11 BBs. Agreed the fastball command needs to tighten up a bit but at 93-95, it has enough on it to keep guys honest even when he not commanding as well.
