Why is Reimold going back to Bowie?

Recommended Posts

I think the basic idea is *first* you show us you can do it, and *then* we promote you... not the other way around.

In general, that seems like a good idea to me...

I think it is ok to let him in Bowie to get some more ab's to prove that last years small sample size was not a fluke.

I'm a firm believer in the cream rising to the top.

Well, I'll say this:

While we may not understand everything that goes on with the O's right now, I do have a feeling that there's a method to the madness.

Years past...just madness.

Ohhh clearly.... thats why Reimold with his 930 OPS goes back to AA, while Hernandez with his 592 OPS at Bowie gets to become the Major League starter.

Hey, he didnt say what they had to show. Hernandez showed in a lot of at-bats how futile he is. Reimold showed us he was good in a small amount of at-bats.

But, the morale of the story is that Hernandez showed us how bad he is, so its okay to promote him. :D

But really, Reimold is a long term solution, Hernandez isnt.

There's no harm in starting him at AAA.

I don't understand this...when healthy, he has shown that he can hit AA pitching at a pretty good clip.

If you're gonna get hurt, you're gonna get hurt, be it at AA, AAA or MLB. This doesn't make sense.

Seems to make sense. They have no plans of rushing prospects. Our outfield is set with Scott, Jones, and Markakis. They want him to get off to a good start and I guarantee they will move him up if he does. They aren't going to bring him up and start his service clock to sit on the bench. I don't understand why anyone sees anything wrong with him getting some more confidence at AA. One thing, not a lot of protection for him in that lineup.

Personally, I want to see what kind of numbers Scott can put up getting his name written into the lineup every day.

No there isn't any harm in starting him at AAA. He has his fate in his own hands though. To quote Darren Green "It doesn't matter where you are! Do what you can with what you have!".

I think if he does well he'll either be in AAA or the Majors before the All-Star break.

LOL...Can't wait to see the response to that one.

Probably something along the lines that Reimold doesn't have the ability to cure cancer with a baseball glove in his hand.

I could understand this if he's 22, but he's 24. 24 in AA is not a good sign. It's... a discouraging sign. If Hernandez is on the Baltimore roster when the season starts, I think this combination of decisions sends very confusing signals to the O's prospects.

I'm not sure it's a big deal that he's in AA instead of AAA. I just don't know.

I will say that his K-rate in the Az. league could give pause. But that's about it.

I think one of the key ideas is that his power numbers will suffer in Norfolk so they want to get the numbers up in Bowie.

Reimold's and Hernandez's situations have nothing in common. We have options in LF with Scott, Payton, and even Moore able to play the position. We really have no other option at SS. And, we know that Hernandez is not the answer at SS long-term, so who cares if he fails? Reimold might be the answer in LF so they'll be more careful with him.

According to my sources {Cough} you are correct.

Norfolk is a big time pitchers park and they are concerned his power numbers would go down, which makes you try to hit more homeruns, which makes your average go down.

Also, keep in mind the pitching would be better in AAA and he's only a phone call away at Bowie. If he forces their hand he can always be moved up to AAA with numbers and confidence. If the O's get a major injury he could become our starting left-fielder sooner then we think.

    • Initial post updated with additions to 60 man roster and info from intrasquad game.
    • Pirate reliever Hector Noesi (Initial post in this thread updated with all the guys who have opted out so far)
    • He signed quickly (for a Boras client)and less than what the Jays could have paid.  You think it is reasonable to think he would have sat out with 700K more on the table?
    • Update: the fourth and final season is brilliant. It takes place in 2030 and is really funny speculative fiction that focuses on how dysfunctional and potentially doomed the MLB is. It’s a must watch. 
    • It's also possible he lost some leverage on his demands when teams let him go to number 5. Still got the 2nd highest SB of the draft. I don't know if it's logical to suggest he would have settled at the same place for the Orioles. And how do you arrive at the bolded when he just signed for well above the slot at which he was selected?
    • I've heard the number for a full year is seven, whether it's games or days I do not know. That is likely a distinction without a difference as far as the Orioles are concerned, as they open with 13 straight days of games.
    • Unfortunately 2023 is the first year Mahomes gets a little more expensive ($42.5M). Hopefully it takes a year or two for Dak/Watson extensions (usually year 1 and/or 2 have a lower cap number).   But  I’d guess Lamar would cost about $35-$38M if he were to be franchised in 2023. That would lead to $42-$45M in 2024. (And $60-65M in 2025).    I don’t think they should (or will) go this route, but they could keep him for the following (cap numbers): 2020 - $2.5M 2021 - $3M 2022 - $20M* 2023 - $36M* 2024 - $43M* 2025 - $62M* *very rough estimates (And could change with big QB contracts) It would essentially be his rookie deal plus a year by year total of 1/36, 2/79, or 3/141. Not the worst thing IF you think he could run out of steam at some point and you think he’s somewhat close to Mahomes value. Again, they won’t do this, but this is what it would look like.  (Note: 2025 would be Lamar’s age 28 season)
