I haven't seen Wilkerson play center since he's been called up, which I assumed was the reasoning for him getting the call over Santander and Stewart in the first place. 

I'd send Wilkerson down. 

I hear ya. I just really like Stevie’s versatility and I like his bat better than Rickards. From what I’ve seen from Rickard in cf I’m not impressed I imagine Smith, Wilkerson, Santander could do just as good of job.

None of them are center fielders.  Rickard has some speed and experience playing the position where as the others you mentioned do not. 

Thing about Wilkerson you need to remember is that he is 27 and just breaking into the big leagues.  I get that he's new and shiny compared to a player like Rickard, but there's no evidence that he's going to be able to hit major league pitching and he's not a center fielder.

Santander was returned to Norfolk and that was the right move.    Smith is in left, Mancini in right, Davis at 1B and Nunez at DH.  There is not place for Santander to get  at bats.   Santander also has a service time issue until the end of the month.

Geez!  No team is playing service time games with a rule V player.

Nice compact swing for Anthony on a cold evening.  I also like the back pocket flapping eschewing (pun intended) tobacco use!  😍

We did it to Rickard last year to leave him with 2 years and 120 days of service time (just below the super 2 cutoff).

He could be back for a another stay if Mancini goes to the IL (Hyde said Trey's hand was barking after first game per Gary T and Roch).

Hyde on Mancini: “I think his finger’s still a little sore and he’s not all the way there. But he swung the bat aggressively, looked a little rusty. When you have a finger, you’re thinking about it also. So he’s not in there for the second game and he’ll get a day off tomorrow.”

No evidence the two are connected.

If the O's think Santander will be part of their next contending team they should be concerned about service time.  He has  over a  year of service time at age 24.  He would be a free agent at 30 if the don't get the 7th season.   All they have to do in keep him in the minors for another 30 days to get that extra years before free agency.

I think Rickard was the person that sent himself to AAA by his lack of production, as he batted .152 with 10 strikeouts in 33 at-bats

So...put the guy on the 10-day IL.   The success of this season doesn't depend on Trey Mancini...so let the guy heal.

The IL strategies so far have been weird. Guys either not placed on it or rushed off it. Not sure why that is.

Rickard was 13 for his last 41 with 7 extra base hits when he was sent down in the middle of August.

    • Hardy also hit really well for a SS
    • Was anyone else super impressed with Jose Igelsias's interview coming out of the game today? Told the story of trading a baseball for an O's cap as a kid when the O's visited Cuba. Said he liked the bird and had to have it. Overall, seemed very smart and professional with a deep knowledge of the game. Something about how he carried himself reminded me of JJ.  JJ came to use at age 28 with the O's coming off a 66 win team in 2010. Jose comes to us at age 30 coming off 54 wins in 2019. 2011 was another rebuild year but we all know what happened in 2012. JJ was one of the keys in transitioning from rebuild to contender, anchoring the defense while mentoring younger players. Iglesias is a different kind of hitter but similar defensive anchor with professional attitude. Hopefully we don't make the mistake of signing Iglesias to a 3 year extension at age 32, but I have a feeling we will be picking up that option and perhaps more if things are going well.  
    • Or a valuable Major League Baseball player. Seriously, there has to be a minor league FA or someone on the waiver wire who's better
    • Ok, so we see some similar things with CD. Thats reassuring.  There’s still weeks worth of play to analyze so let’s have at that.  Good to know that Sisco is improving an area of deficiency.  I think Holaday’s tater probably sends a louder and more direct message.  In a GCL game with no fans in an empty stadium it would have made a great bang off that tower!
    • If a good chunk of that is against the Yankees and Red Sox, that will be all the upside I need
    • I watched most of today's game and was pleasantly surprised to see a more confident Davis earn the two BB's and the oppo single.  His D looked good but he did lumber around third to home and scored easily. On Sisco, he looked good behind the plate from the few innings I saw.  He has filled out more since last year. From Mike Williams:  
    • Yeah, agree with your second point, it's not a huge deal. And agree it's probably mainly a style of play issue. But with regard to your first point, back when we were in the ACC it felt like things were way more balanced (other than blatant ref bias in Duke games, and maybe UNC games). There were actually games back in the day where it felt like we'd get favoritism against the bottom feeders. Even our current out of conference games, you might see an extra call or two go our way. Simply doesn't happen in conference games. Guess it's the big ten style of play and the fact Turgeon rarely has had big inside bangers (other than Fernando). I do wonder how much of it is the intangible of how well the coach works the refs.
