Toronto looking for New President to be Duquette.

Recommended Posts

Wow, I would have no interest in bringing back MacPhail.

Make Brady GM, promote Rice and Graham to bigger roles, and higher someone with experience as an AGM.

I like this idea a lot. Maybe AM could come back in a "consulting" role?

I think someone before said promote Buck and hire Gardenhire. I'd be okay with that.

If' date=' IF, if Dan is really gone to Toronto, then that's what that Buck/Angelos meeting was about. I fully expect to hear Buck named G.M. with Brady being named something like head of player personnel.[/quote']

I honestly don't think your far off here.

I like Buck so much in his on-field role, and I think he fits so well in that role, that I really wouldn't want to mess with that if possible. I also think two old-school manager types like Buck and Gardenhire could be a mistake. I'd rather have a younger, maybe more analytically inclined voice in the GM role.

The decisions over the next twelve months will make or brake this team for a long time. I do not want committee that includes Brady making those decisions.

Like you, I am not making any assumptions about what has gone on here. However, I do think Toronto's apparent use of the media to interfere with the normal process, if shown to be intentional, is pretty outrageous.

I think it's in bad taste. I don't think it ultimately has any impact on Baltimore. If proven Toronto will get penalized to the extent necessary to make other owners comfortable that dirty laundry won' be needlessly aired.

I do wonder what folks would think if roles were reversed and we add the wrinkle that Baltimore tried to do things the right way and resorted to the media stunt after the other club continued to drag and drag and drag their feet...

I'm not sure why not.

Maybe Duquette will "make" a nice trade this offseason after all.

    • Another article on Reed from May 2019.  The first 33 games of 2019 have featured a paltry .205/.282/.410 slash as a 24-year-old in Double-A. An 84 wRC+ despite being slightly older than his average competition in the Texas League. Those numbers often describe a prospect afterthought, especially with most statistical categories beginning to normalize. Yet, a look under the hood suggests Reed is on the verge of a breakout that could make him a hot commodity throughout the prospect community before the end of the regular season. https://prospects365.com/2019/05/18/buddy-reed-and-buying-before-a-breakout/
    • It was a heck of a lot better than 2000-2009.  2012 was a truly great year, and 2014 wasn't bad, either.  And hopefully we look back at '19 as the year we finally got on track to having a top-to-bottom modern organization for the first time since the 1970s.
    • OK, I will exhale now.    Have a great Thanksgiving, Tony, and enjoy your time off!
    • Actually he would have to be up by the beginning of 2024, because he would be out of options at that point, using his three option years in 2021, 2022 and 2023, which could potentially further mess up his development.
    • If you're taking Javier and having him mostly sit the bench or hit .100 for all of 2020 I think you'd be looking at him as the possible shortstop in 2024.  He was miserable in low A last year.  On a normal track he'd probably go back there in 2020.  Instead you'd have him essentially miss the year, just working out with the O's.  You probably put him in Frederick in 2021. Maybe if he's really good he ends the year in Bowie.  Most of the year in AA in 2022.  If things work out well he's in AAA in '23, maybe a late callup.  But being more conservative you're looking at mid-year 2024.  Things could break better, his talent really comes out and he's ahead of that schedule.  But in no way do you expect him to be the MLB shortstop in '22.
    • In my opinion, you are WAY too worried about Mountcastle’s defense.    He’s not some klutz out there.    He has a weak arm.    The fact that he played 3 seasons on the left side of the infield tells you that he has the athleticism to play 1B or COF at a reasonably good level.       As to whether I’d lock him up now at that price, it’s a little tough to say.   If you think he’s likely to be about on the level with a Josh Bell or Trey Mancini, it’s probably worth the risk.    If you think he’s more of a Mitch Moreland level bat, then probably not.       And before people start poo-pooing Mitch Moreland, the guy has had a respectable 10-year career in the majors and had a career .883 OPS in the minors.    Most top 100 prospects would love to have Moreland’s career.
