1. Money, Nunez was reported to get 2m- 4m. Shaw will get the minimum.
2. Shaw and Stewart both have an option left. Nunez was out of options.
3. The O's have a predominately right handed lineup with Mancini, Mountcastle, Hays, Severino, Diaz, Valaika, Martin, Bannon and Urias. Shaw or Stewart helps balance the offense along with Santander (s), Sisco, Sanchez(s), Ruiz and Mullins who is a switchhitter but really only hits well from the left side.
McKenna and Diaz will start in AAA and stay there most the year unless they really push the issue or injuries force them to come up.
6 guys over the 5 positions in some fashion. If Nunez didn’t fit I don’t see why Chris Shaw would.
Wow, same here... I was just debating it last week. I called DirecTV to cancel and they said since I swapped a wired Genie mini for a wireless Genie mini in August that I "agreed" to a 12-month contract. (Counts as new hardware.) So, whatever, I guess I'm paying $89/month until August.
