Yes, yes, but he’s better than the last ‘ace’ they signed.

Hey, every ace can’t be expected to make the playoff roster

O's have won every game in which they've scored at least four runs. Maybe they need the guy they are already paying to be Superman to perform at least as well as Clark Kent.

Guy only works every 5th start.  I'm not sure what kind of miracle you guys are expecting.

He's Alex Cobb.  He's not Clayton Kershaw, Chris Sale or Max Scherzer.  

Yes but he makes the rotation much better.

I'm expecting about a 111 ERA+, and that will feel pretty amazing I would think.

I guess your definition of much better and my definition of much better are two different things.  

Yes, he makes it better.  Demonstrably so, I'm not sure.

You’re kidding, right?     

Cobb: 3.50 ERA (111 ERA+)

Wright: 5.94 ERA (72 ERA+)

That’s not demonstrably better?    That is a huge upgrade.

How much impact does that one upgrade have on the quality of the entire rotation?

Probably lower the overall ERA of the rotation by .4 runs a game, I’d estimate.    And probably lower the innings pitched by the bullpen by 20 or so.

With Cobb I guess 30 innings.

    • Well I guess. I trust mike. But regarding swings, it’s possible to have a fine swing and still not be able to hit anything.  I didn’t check his K rate( oh I just see your comment about his K rate... um, that’s not good) or his contact rate, but I would hope they are both good.
    • This is what I've been working on. Ready, Steady, GO! from the 60's. I'd guess no later than '65, Gerry and the Pacemakers' absolute zenith... playlist: Stones with Brian still Beatles introducing PJ Proby doing  "Walkin' The Dog"!!! backed up by The Vernons Girls (sounds like The Go-Gos...) Cilla Black (pictured) belting out the standard Gerry and the Pacemakers Donovan! Sounds Incorporated Long John Baldry doing "Got My Mojo Workin'"! and that's all just the first 15 minutes!   Ready, Steady, GO!  
    • That’s fine and true, but the Rays are the best in the biz at developing talent. If they’ve given up on him, it’s fair to think they exhausted all the possibilities first. I think Grenier might not pan out, and Hall is still a couple years off, so if the Os think they see something worthwhile,  Wander certainly has some appeal.  
    • A good swing is not defined by the results. Also, remember that SF Giants are not know to produce good young hitters through draft and development. If you are the Orioles, you have to believe in your coaches and development staff when compared with other teams. With this much in his tank, you have to take a shot on a big power guy like this.  I watched some Spring Training at bats as well. He hit 4-5 HR's in the last few years. One video had him on the same field as Hanser Alberto in February 2019, lol.
    • Ummm, it seems not.
    • I got a axe-handle pistol On a graveyard frame That shoot tombstone bullets Wearin' balls and chains I'm drinkin' TNT I'm smokin' dynamite I HOPE some screwball... start a fight! Because I'm ready Readyas anybody can be. actually a Willie Dixon song...
    • Apparently it’s not that obvious or someone would have traded for him.   The market for WAR is not linear, even if you can make the argument that it should be.
