I dunno. In holidays/daydream mode, I'm still navel gazing for a Severino non-tender as a leading indicator of Week 2 Adley.
Clubs are a couple weeks away from having to show their non-tender cards as the revenue ripples start floating out.
If they keep the expanded roster size then that really de-values position players. You can platoon your way through a season like the Dodgers and Rays did.
I think Alberto is gone. The Sanchez situation is a tough one to predict. I think we keep Valaika, and he could get lots of ABs at 3B and 2B.
I and others have already agreed that is largely money driven but it's a combination of the money and what Nunez brings to the table. If Nunez was an average or slightly below average 3B, they would gladly pay him the 2M or whatever. They believe he's easily replaceable, whether that be Stewart being the DH or a rotation of players into that spot while players like Valaika and Mullins give starters days off in the field. Again, I agree the O's are being cheap. No argument there. I just don't have a problem with their cheapness with this move.
I think they’ll give him a full year in the minors with stops in AA/AAA. Maybe a taste of the MLB for 5-10 games. Severino is here till the deadline or next offseason, unless someone offers us a good trade. Hopefully, Severino and Sisco, make the most of these 2021 ABs and fetch us some trade value.
