Recommended Posts

Jonathan Mayo on MLB Network just now put a "really love" on Kremer, and a lot more words on him over Tate in an overview of the Orioles trades to date.

I was talking to Adam Pohl about him, I like him from what I've seen, he's got a Wei-Yin Chen-like fastball, plays well above it's velo and movement. Pohl was saying the guy has enormous hands, long fingers, he said it reminded him of Jim Palmer's hands.

Averaging 1.4 K's / IP is pretty impressive.  I am surprised he is not rated higher.

SSS and all, but after being promoted to AA, he still has 18IP and 22 K's.

It's questions about command and a solid 3rd pitch. I like him a lot though.

I’ve only read scouting reports on all these guys but it seemslike Kremer has a little something extra because of his FB movement. Plus he’s hit the ground running. He had just got promoted to AA with the Dodgers system. Then comes right here afterwards. He’s had to adjust to three teams and three different leagues over the last month or so. He’s getting results too. That’s worth something.

He also dials it up when needed. He always has something else.  Tough competitor.

Today’s line: 6 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 2 ER, 2 BB, 9 K’s.

I watched most of it, he was pretty good, maybe 2 hard hit balls. Couldn't tell much from Bowie's camera angle, but it seemed like FB command wasn't great, t94, but mostly 91-93. He had a FB heavy mix, but went CB to RHB and CH to LHB and got whiffs on both. I was impressed with the changeup garnering swings and misses.

Time I saw him before his FB command wasn’t great either.  I am on the record that Kremer will end up being the best guy we got.

    • I don't imagine Mason Williams will be able to play the next few days so we will probably get to see more of Hays on this homestand.
    • From a purely impersonal point of view, I agree with you.    But in the real world, guys who have been with the club most of the year and have made some contributions aren’t going to be completely cut off.    They’ll get tossed a bone here and there.     And yes, I realize that one can debate whether Smith or Wilkerson  “made some contributions.”    
    • It was intended as a wisecrack.    The mores of 1976 weren’t the same as today.    Believe me, Weaver said a lot worse.     As to Cuellar, I understand Weaver made the remark after Cuellar complained about not getting enough starts in 1976, a year in which he went 4-13 with a 4.96 ERA (66 ERA+).    To me it was just Weaver’s colorful way of saying that he felt he’d given Cuellar plenty of chances that year.    Not a comment on Cuellar’s overall performance during his career.    And my point in quoting Weaver was that Cuellar got a lot more chances that year than a pitcher without his track record would have gotten.     Even Earl Weaver believed that a guy who had earned it over a long period of time deserved some rope.   Buck was far from alone in that regard.   
    • They have to many players on the team.  I think they should be evaluating the guys who need evaluating.  I think we can close the book on Smith and Wilkerson.
    • I would keep Villar.  He is a good major league player.  We have too few of them to give them away.
    • It was a cheap shot on his first wife as well.
    • I haven't done the full 40-man eval but I'd protect him over the other guys you listed. Would the plus curve and the slider that is more slurrvy, I think he's got a pretty good chance of being a solid bullpen arm. From July to the end of the year batters slashed .147/.284/.206/.490 off him with a 0.47 ERA over 19.1 IP with 22 Ks and 11 BBs. Agreed the fastball command needs to tighten up a bit but at 93-95, it has enough on it to keep guys honest even when he not commanding as well.
