Lance Lynn Signs with the Twins (One-Year Deal)

There's absolutely no way this FO can possibly say with a straight face that they are actively trying to win. There has never been a more friendly market for acquiring pitching and still nothing but flops.

Couldn’t have said it better myself. This just proves that the FO has absoluteky no intention of competing this year.  I’ve said for weeks now, they’ve made it a point to not give anyone (pitcher or not) more than a 2 year deal so why not offer Lynn or Cobb a 1/$20 million deal so they won’t be tied to any other long contracts (while showing fans they’re at least trying to compete THIS year).  It is clear they don’t plan on being competitive and that should frustrate ANY O’s fan.

Unless the Twins gave him about $67 Million dollars for that one year, I'm pissed.

1/12 M with incentives to 1/14M.

If we hear they made an offer and Lynn was just set on pitching with the Twins, it stings a bit less.

It'll either be that or "his medicals didn't look clean."

They'll use one excuse for Lynn and the other for Cobb.

If Cobb signs for less than this Lynn deal ..

If the Orioles didn’t make an offer for Lynn, why even “try” to compete this year.  Start the rebuild process now.

Cobb is still out here, offer him 1/14 M and make him say no.

I am sure that is what the warehouse Angelos PR machine...I mean MASN will be putting out there in  three...two...one....

MASN will say it was too much money.  Or that the Orioles trust Mike Wright based on his "stellar" spring training.  Defending the Orioles must be exhausting for MASN.

And here I was in a good (baseball) mood because of the fact that I will get to see BOTH Hunter Harvey AND Andrew Cashner pitch tomorrow ........ Harvey on NESN in the afternoon against the Red Sox, and Cashner on MASN in the evening against the Pirates.

Oh, well.

This is the most shocking FA signing of the whole offseason to me.  Especially after how many teams were said to be looking for pitching and how many teams were mentioned as being interested...

He turned down a 17.4 million dollar qualifying offer.  This is bizarre.  O's could have given him 1 year, 18 million and it would have made some kind of sense.

Wild.

Hell, offer Arrieta one year $18M and make him say no.  

Or... just trade Manny.

This.  Get serious about filling out the starting rotation or start the rebuild.

Do not sell the fans on Mike Wright as the fifth starter and claim you are going all out for a playoff spot.

I am down right angry. This is crazy! I didn’t even like Lynn but for $12m? 

Maddening.

Did everyone forget that it would cost a 1st rd pick to sign Lynn for 1 year. I got the 12million is really cheap but why give up the draft pick too?

Maybe a second year was a deal breaker for Lynn's camp.

The Cardinals are laughing their rear ends off.

    • What’s the corresponding move to activate Hays?  Looks like just a straight swap with McKenna is likely. Sulser, Lakins, or Tate, could be an option too. With playing in an NL for two games, and having two off days, we may elect to go with a bigger bench and drop an bullpen arm. 
    • The ball was in the shadows and dropped like 5 ft outside of the shadows in RF for a hit. I think Franco probably couldn’t see it and got a bad read. A tough L. 
    • Means Is only behind Glasnow in WAR, ahead of Cole and Bieber. Good company. I hope the breakout continues. 
    • Currently, the pitching staff is 14th in WAR (in the majors), 10th best in walk rate, 17th in total ERA and 7th in BP ERA. Nice numbers considering we apparently have the worst catchers in baseball.  I’m shocked that they could be this awful defensively, game calling, framing, etc...and yet we are finding some early success after building on last year, which wasn’t as bad as suspected. It’s almost as if the catchers defense can be overcome by other factors! (Or people are just clueless as to how to actually judge a C defense)
    • The issue is that you are intentionally taking the GMs statement that the Os are not measuring success by wins as meaning something else....that the Orioles are not trying to win games. And then extrapolating that into the Orioles are trying to lose games.    That simply isn’t what is going on. And I think you know that. I think in general folks are on board with the rebuild. We are also at the point where we are about as far from being competitive as we have been in a long time.      I don’t know how much the pandemic has effected the rebuild, but minor leagues have been shut down for a loooong time.  I can’t help but think it probably cost us a full year.    I don’t know if Hyde will be the manager in 2 months or 2 years.  I really don’t worry about that at all. Right now, I just want to see the Os get better and develop talent.    I would say this is the last year the Os can continue with a mindset of we are not measuring success with wins. I think it is likely that success next year will be marked by small improvement to something along the lines of 75-80 wins.    I am trying to enjoy the moments.    The moments Mancini reminds us of what he can be. The moments Mountcastle reminds us that he could be in the mix for ROY. The moments John Means looks like a real #1 or #2. And yes the moment we get to see AR, Diaz and others crack the lineup.    It’s not the same as fretting over when Hyde rests Santander or who he pitches in the 8th or 9th. But this ain’t Toronto and whether or not we use our historically good closer in the 6th, 11th or ever. Hyde is gonna learn or he won’t. In the end, of the GM gets the talent part, getting someone to manage will be a breeze. 
    • Personally, I'm surprised Sisco didn't get charged with a PB.  He has looked bad this year.
    • Yea, to think some people actually bought the idea that no outside food had to do with covid.
