Not starting again tonight. He usually will get in either as PH or switch .

Yeah during his hitting resurgence he's started about half of the Brewers game. Sometimes he gets pinch-hit for, sometimes pinch-hits, and sometimes even replaces Shaw for defense at second. They've played three extra-inning games during that stretch.

He’s making $8.5 million in arb this year. He’s worth 1.7 WAR right now. What’s he looking like in Arb next year?  $12 million?  

I am guessing Schoop becomes a free agent after the season.

He gets tendered.  They might trade him but he'll get tendered.

Want to bet?  No one is paying Schoop over 9 million year.

I wonder what Schoop would accept as an extension at this point?  This Milwaukee situation has to scare him pretty bad. Maybe things weren’t so bad here. Flip the Brewers something back and offer Schoop 5/60.

Schoop could be having that “come to Jesus” moment in Milwaukee. Shocker. We have a barren system of middle IFs. Could be the ultimate buy low. That’s what we’re all thinking anyways.

No thanks on re-acquiring Schoop and extending him.  He is what is wrong with the Orioles, a guy who hits home runs, strikeouts out a lot, does not walk, below average speed and declining defense which will only get worse as gets older.

There are a lot of moving parts in the Brewers' infield depth chart. I doubt they want to pay Moustakas $15 million to come back next year and if he's gone, Shaw (still sub-one million bucks/season) can move back to third base and Schoop can reclaim second.

I wouldn't know, but it seems like Manny, Buck and some coaches were Schoop's main emotional attachment to the O's. They could all be gone by next season.

The Brewers are an exciting team in a thrilling pennant race. His "Come to Jesus"-moment may actually be that he loves being in the thick of it even if he doesn't start every single game. Even when he's not in the starting lineup, he usually gets inserted in high-leverage situations. Last night, he had 3 RBIs in 2 ABs and a highlight-reel game-ending play at second base despite not entering the game until the 8th inning.

The O's need a good defensive shortstop with range, especially if Nunez claims third base. We already have a second baseman.

I just don't see it happening.

We are all going to owe Cimota an apology when  Schoop is out of baseball next season. 

I think he will land somewhere, just not for the money he was wanting.

    • Poor Frobby.  lol Some of you guys read too much into the simplest little things.
    • Where have you been? Our catchers hit better than the typical catcher, but they defend lousy.
    • B. IMO, these rankings have been revolving around potential, mostly.  And if people want to weigh the grades towards potential, that's fine but it usually doesn't take into account that the potential might not pan out.  Adley is a great prospect and if you're going to bet on someone, you should bet on him but there's still a chance he could not be the all-world catcher that we're hoping for.  And the B is because of Adley, not because I'm enthralled with what we currently have. Severino and Sisco are decent (not great) hitting catchers.  After his red hot start to 2020, Severino came back down to earth pretty quickly, his OPS+ didn't crack 100.  I love Sisco's plate discipline, his separation between his batting average and on base percentage is pretty absurd but I'm not sure if hell ever hit above .250.  If he did, his on base percentage could end up over .400.  His OPS+ this year was 105. Both of these guys have average defense, at best.   I'm not sure if SG's claim of having the best catching situation in the sport is accurate as I'm not up to date on what other franchise situations look like.  But when you have a top 5 prospect at catcher, you can probably be in the conversation, so I'll go along and agree with him.  But again, if you're going to give out grades for untapped potential, you also need to take into account that these guys might not work out.
    • I feel like it is really tough to evaluate the future of a bullpen just because of the unknowns. Who really knows what flawed starter will be thrown to the bullpen and be a stud....I don’t think anyone saw Zach Britton coming. I guess the good news is that when you have the depth the Os are growing, it gives a decent indication that there can be impact arms in the pen.
    • I understand the OP grade of an A, but I would imagine that grade takes into account what our organization was as much as what it currently is. If you compare it to our history, I would agree with the A grade. But comparing to other organizations, I would think a B is probably more realistic. I say this having done zero research to support this comment. Either way, I am happy with the state of the pitching, and think next year will be a big one to see what we actually have.
    • Depth drove that one.  We have the best catching prospect, but not much depth.  Knock on wood, Adley gets hurt/doesn't perform, our grade would drop tremendously.
