Orioles: Most inept organization in all of profesional sports?

No way Buck does that to one of his guys. Renee has it, phantom injury, extended rehab.

If Reimold can actually last a whole year on the roster as a DEFENSIVE replacement (only to come into a playoff game and make an error) then Buck can figure a way to keep Tillman.

Who is the best 5th msn option? Castro? Harvey?

Scott Feldman is still out there?

He was pretty good until he got hurt last year.

Harvey pitched like 18 innings last year and none so far this year. He isnt ready.

It was obvious in camp he was done.  We've let him destroy three games now, to say nothing of the bullpen having to clean up.  Aren't we going for it?

(Yes, I said I was okay with the signing ...IF... they had seen him throw and believed he was better, a reasonable assumption, but he's clearly broken.)

Internally we have Hess and Ramirez.  Ugh.  It's not Wright.  Castro hasn't been good.  I hope they don't go with Harvey but it's possible.

I'd definitely call Feldman, Dickey, and Lackey.  Trade for Vargas?  Trade for Hellickson?  

I'd rather forfeit every 5th day (which is what we're doing now) than call Ubaldo.

Dickey is still a FA. We could use an innings eater anyways. But I totally agree with the premise. I think his release is the only sane option from this point.

I consider myself to be as patient as any member of this board.   Today was the last straw.    Release  Tillman.  

Welcome to the dark side.

There is a perfectly good Tillman thread :) 

 

I think releasing him would be dumb. Find him a phantom injury. That's how we role....

 

I would have still given him the same contract. A $3 Million option is nothing for a SP.  You might be right (seems like it), but still worthwhile to keep him in the org to see if he figures it out IMO. 

Unless there really is an injury, not releasing him would be dumb.  Let him go, eat the $, and let a spot on the 40 man open up for whatever opportunity may present itself inside or outside the organization.

Exactly.

Pick up the phone.

Call Feldman.

Call Dickey.

Call Cahill.

Call Lackey.

Offer them $1-2 million to pitch be our #5 starter.  First person who accepts, bring them in and if they pass a physical, sign them.

    • “Major League Baseball is completely comfortable with the Orioles’ coaching designations for the 2020 season, which are not only consistent with the terms of the pension plan but were approved in advance by MLB and shared prior to the start of the season with representatives from the Major League Baseball Players Association. The suggestion that there is an ongoing investigation that could result in discipline is simply false.” https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2020/10/report-elias-and-holt-linked-to-potential-pension-fraud.html Oh.   That’s very different.   Never mind.  
    • o   This game wound up being even more wild than that 1979 All-Star game ........       o
    • Big story becomes non story.  All in one hour.  That was fast.
    • I’ve made multiple points multiple,times. I made the same points during the 47-win season, and I made them multiple times. I’m moving on..
    • Oh don’t worry, popped up on my screen and I’ve already watched it about 10 times. The camera work is terrible. I can’t believe that they can’t use their cameramen more effectively. But it’s a great play. I wonder if they’re going to score 2 errors in the play or if nobody cares anymore, ha ha
    • There was nothing in existence at the time to support the emboldened statement.  Certainly not his minor league career, nor his performance in the few weeks of spring training that Elias could see.  You are basing everything you say on hindsight.  Please provide your evidence that shows that Yaz was something other than what he had shown himself to be in the minors BEFORE the trade was made.  Until you do that, I'm afraid that you just aren't convincing anyone.  That others, most of us in fact, in hindsight, wish we hadn't traded Yaz is quite obvious, but that doesn't mean Elias failed in any way at the time, given the information available to him at the time.  There was simply no outcry from people upset about the trade at the time.  It was pretty much a ho-hum deal.
    • It seemed like every important AB in this game -- and that was an awful lot of them -- had at least one missed call by the home plate umpire.
