No need now. Castro is too important to the MLB pen and winning. 

He's projected for replacement level production. If they see him as important, they probably shouldn't.

I don't know if he did it on purpose or not but the market played right into DD's hands

Two solid starting pitchers (three if Tillman does Well) for solid prices and a bunch of complimentary pieces to fill some holes.

Which I don’t get when they had no idea where he was playing.

Ranges between 46 and 85 innings, so bullpen projections it appears. None of the systems like him, only ZiPS has him under a 5 ERA. Low K rate, high walk rate, no dominant groundball rate to go with it. His ERA looked ok last season, but by all other numbers he didn't actually pitch that well.

Weams with Cobb the Orioles seem to have a legitimate rotation and a much better shot of competing. Other than having a real lead off hitter I'd say we are now much improved. Do you think we have a chance of competing?

He was lying in the weeds, I swear he was.

High walk rate? Still had a good groundball rate   

We shall see how he performs.

Literally have the album playing through right now while finding out the news of the Cobb signing.

I usually just lurk and don’t post until the season starts but man I have to chime in and say how happy I am for this news. This changes my season outlook in a great way. 

Can’t wait for next Thursday. Let’s go O’s!

    • It’s a supply and demand thing.  Whether someone offers X amount of dollars is irrelevant.  The Os And their structure, could use his bat and his production.   Most teams don’t have that combo of at bats and money they can spend on a player with his skill set.     The Os do...and the idea that other teams chose not to do it is irrelevant to his value to this organization.  The idea that they may be looking into Puig (conjecture) and brought on a LH DH type at REINFORCES the idea that this is salary driven, not producing driven imo.     My only argument with this decision is that this isn’t solely or even largely driven by roster management despite what Elias says.  He is lying for management.
    • Your tone of authority when you are clearly in a fog is admirable.  Anyone who thought his arbitration number was a bargain, as you suggest, could have offered a warm body to secure his services before he hit the open market.  What won't make sense is if any team offers him 2M or more now that he's available to any team that wants him.
    • There are three vaccines, possibly four or five, if you trust the Chinese and Russians. Every factory on the world is going to be producing them. We may delay the start of spring training(only three months away) but I don’t think the season will start late. We may have distanced crowds, though.
    • No, it absolutely is the formula and what’s he’s worth.  That’s a fact. However, there are only a few teams that need a DH, so it’s not surprising that the market isn’t there..plus, you have announced that you are cutting him, so why trade for him with so little completion?
    • Nevin may get reps at 3B, LF, and DH.  Shaw fits in well as a 1B, LF, DH option too
