What's the most you'd offer any of Hardy, Jimenez, Miley, or Tillman to return?

Certainly worth a flyer contract for Tillman...3 years for 30.   He will make it look like a steal. 

 

The others...pass. 

Have we reached the point where 3/30 counts as a flyer?

For starting pitchers...probably.  I still think he has not recovered.  His average velocity has been down all year.  It started down during the last part of last year, was really down when he tried to pitch earlier this year and still has not quite ticked back.

Brooks has his 4 seamer at 91.78 in July and 92.42 so far this month.  In five of the six months of the 2015 season his 4 seamer was 92.XX, in 2014 it was 91.XX in Five of the months.

I don't see where his current velocity is a red flag given his historic numbers.

And this is baseball, guys get bad overnight at 29 on a fairly frequent basis. 

Not this bad.

Matusz was a perfectly serviceable starter in 2010 and the worst starter in history in 2011.  He was 24.

Well, you certainly have a point there.

It's certainly possible that Tillman will not bounce back and he will scuffle along another year or two before fading into baseball oblivion.

Based on his history though, there is a chance he could bounce back. As pointed out in this thread, his FB velocity is around it's norm. Tillman would not be the first guy to sustain an injury, come back and just stumble through a lost season then bounce back somewhat to form the next.

Only time will tell but I think its a bit premature to say he just "got bad" given the circumstances that have surrounded his season to date. His future is certainly questionable but I would take a flyer on him with a one year low money deal. Even if he gave you 80% of what he has before that would make for a decentish back of the rotation type guy on the cheap (veteran to boot).

I could be convinced on a one year deal.

I want no part of a multi-year deal unless all the years after year one are team options.

No doubt. Totally agree. One year small money.

Optimally we are talking about a 1 year deal for small enough money that if he comes out and looks like hot garbage then you just DFA him.

If he rebounds then your getting a nice deal and some good numbers from your 5th starter.

If someone wants to take a bigger risk than that on him...more power to them and good luck.

How about a pitcher who actually had a long track record like Tillman at a similar age? Matusz is not the least bit comparable. 

I'm sure you can find at lest one that won't prove a darn thing either way right?

    • Good replies but I did not say to sign any expensive free agents. I suggested filling in as Elias suggested on last weeks Hot Stove show the need for an experienced middle infielder (Iglesias), starting pitching (Wheeler or Odorizzi) and relief pitching Hudson and Harris.  None of them will break the bank but will solve his needs. Most of these players will probably get 1 year or 2 year deals. The starters I named may push for 3 years but I would stay away from any requiring more than 2 years since we have a number of young starters moving up soon. 70 wins is obtainable with a few additions. How many games did our pen blow last season.  Givens alone cost us probably 8 or more games and the rest of the pen others. I think most of us would be happy if we reached 70 in 2020.
    • Yeah I guess it doesn’t matter that he’s nearly 30. 
    • No.... .....and it is one of the most depressing / infuriating / frustrating things about the last two years. The guy is a millstone around the neck of the franchise. Mancini should be playing first. Anyone could see the rebuild coming, knew it would be difficult, but looked forward to seeing the emerging players. Some will flame out, some will flicker with hope, and some (Means seems to be the first) will exceed expectations. But C F'ing Davis watching belt high 91 mph sinkers for strike three with that deer in the headlights walk back to the dugout look.....   ugh. That I wish we could be spared.
    • As a state employee, I enjoy watching people dig themselves deeper into holes.
    • Doesn’t bother me that Gammons mentioned he was dumped by the Orioles.    That’s part of the story.   
    • Nope.    But we’re talking about next year.    Elias says Davis is following a regimen they set for him.   I’m not optimistic it will work but we’ll see.   Honestly the regimen may have more to do with execution than approach, if you follow me.
