Who do we have that is better?  No problem With DFA'ing him but who is going to take his starts?   

Pretty much anyone in AAA could go out and give up 5 ER in 5 innings any given night

Not sure that is really the case.  We are using all of our guys in relief right now.  I would move Ibaldo to the pen. Once you find a fifth starter then you can look to DFA him

But then he is just clogging a space in the bullpen. An optionable pitcher in the 5th slot could be nice as they can role with an 8 man bullpen in between starts.

We have had a thread like this every year he's been here, it seems. But this time I think it might be the right move. There's only a few months left anyways. Let's end the torture. I would put Asher into the rotation.

I'm about ready.    It's not even wildness any more.    He's not that tough to hit even when he's throwing strikes.

Sorry. I may be Ubaldo's biggest supporter, but its over. He just cant command...and when he does command he gets banged around too. He demoralizes this team when he pitches like tonight.and he does this often,,,.and he shows no signs of "going on a run".I hate to say it, but he's got to go. Long relief at best..but its over.`

    • 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)
