Heyward May Have Crashed the OF Market

Recommended Posts

Davis hit 120 home runs in three years.

Weams, not sure if there's sarcasm here, but I'm sure you know there's more ways to provide value than to hit home runs.

And, that high-k\power guys, do not age well.

Heyward is going to crash and burn as a player I think. I don't see it with him.

I see Heyward as Alex Gordon with more speed, but at Heyward's age, Gordon wasn't even a starter yet. Gordon put up 27.1 WAR from his age 27-31 seasons. That would be more than enough value to cover all of Heyward's contract, which begins in his age 26 season, giving him an extra year up front and two more at the end.

I'd give him 6/130M.

It doesn't matter what the Orioles pay Davis, as it has been reported the money is set aside for Davis and Davis only. What ever money is saved will NOT be used on other players.

It has?

Can I get a link please?

I've seen speculation here on the OH to that effect but nothing from a credible source.

You didn't know?

Cuban = Head case

:rolleyes:

There's been plenty in the media about Cespedes eccentricities.

I read summer this summer about him chain smoking in the tunnel during BP w the Mets.

I'm not sure how'd that'd fly in Baltimore.

Only when Stanhouse is pitching.

No, I don't think he's being sarcastic. Davis really did hit that many home runs.

Now... that was me being sarcastic.

But the point stands. He's among the premier power hitters in the league. He's a freakish athlete who can play a very good first, and legitimate right field when needed (and even 3rd base, and pitcher!). He's a great clubhouse guy. And the offer for CD was for a year less, and $35 million less. Let me put it this way. If Davis was doing all of that and played for the Yankees, and we were talking about signing him as a Free Agent... I think the $150 would seem quite reasonable. It's the grass is always greener conundrum.

Where has this been reported? Source? Something JD says on the radio doesn't constitute a report IMO.

It wasn't reported, It was Jim Duquette on XM yesterday referencing how it was when he was GM of the Orioles. He basically said if money was allocated for a player that that money wouldn't have been used elsewhere. So he was speculating that DD was under the same constraints.

He was not GM.

Not all of the money will be available, this year

    • Context. He hit very well in spells in Bowie, but tended to get hurt and start slowly when he came back. So,  his cumulative stats MAY not be an indicator of his true talent. Additionally, the coaches/management see him and have the modern equipment to better evaluate that question (e.g., his true talent, expected future performance) than "old" stats like batting average in the context of injuries might indicate. With that said, I'm not convinced that his true talent actually matches his original hype when signed by the Dodgers or traded to the O's. Tony's write-ups raise serious questions in that regard, so I don't think you're wrong to want to see some performance before promoting him. But I suspect the people you're arguing with in this thread actually agree about that point.

    • So, by your post above, you agree that the Iglesias trade does fit into what we'd expect Elias to be doing ("building inventory"), correct? As for free agents, I can imagine him wanting to spend BIG in a place where he might not think we have answers during a competitive period. So at SS or 2B, for example, I'd expect he might hold off on a big name guy because he might think we have our own big name guys 2-3 years away, so the paying part wouldn't make sense re: a competitive team. Same for 3B, outfield, catcher and even pitcher. I honestly think that 90% of what he's doing is consistent with what I would expect him to do given a complete rebuild. The one part I agree with is the opportunity to take on bigger contracts in exchange for more prospects. I too wish we'd go that route. I think the next level example of that is signing a guy like Cobb (e.g., more expensive than Iglesias) and hoping for performance so you can trade him. I think the cost/risk equation there gets a little out of hand though. 
    • OH ... 15.5 ... Thanks for helping make my point 🍺
    • I live in a world where you prove you deserve a promotion. Producing at your current role is the indicator. Most players produce less at the majors than they did in the minors....Notice I said most! Analytics helps and I'm happy we have them. But they stats are the stats and why think a guy is ready to do better at the majors than he's done at AA? .262 is pretty mediocre. What is it about Bowie that would lead you to believe that he'd do better at the majors. Scenario ..... its 2021 in July and Diaz is hitting .260/.315/750 at AA. Why do you think he'd be better against MLB pitching? Analystics? I'm pretty sure they are using the same data in the minors now right?
    • I agree with you and Frobby, circumstances rather than any actual numbers threshold. And I think the bolded is the best and simplest way to phrase it. Next man up.
    • But it was my thought!  Lol. Going forward, I will think it and Jerios will post it.
