I am 110% behind rebuild but I’d love to have Schoop back!

It'd make no sense to trade back for Schoop.  If the O's want him back, they should wait another year and sign him as a free agent - not that I'm suggesting they do that, but it'd make more sense than trading for him.     

I think the Brewers would not want to trade Schoop back to the O's for a fraction of what they gave up for him.  Would be a loss of face.

I don't want him back. If he is struggling now why on earth bring him back?

Right.  There's just no way that happens.  Only way Schoop comes back here is if he signs as a FA after next season.  Probably not very likely, but certainly possible, especially if he doesn't have a good season next year going into FA and the O's are somehow not as awful as we expect.

The Nats have waived the white flag on 2018 with Marc Lerner talking about " making sure we have all of the pieces necessary to come back and be competitive next year."   Nats second baseman, Daniel Murphy, who missed the first 2 1/2 months of the season, went to the Cubs in a waiver claim for Class A infielder Andruw Monasterio and a PTBNL or cash.  Murphy, six years older than Schoop, is a free agent after this season.

On the bench again. Feel bad for him at this point.

I'm amazed they traded for him and are seemingly giving up on him this quickly.

Bizarre.

It’s crunch time for Milwaukee and they need results ASAP. Waiver or after season trade, Beckham for Schoop straight up.

Back to back nights on the bench for Schoop. Looks like they’re using him strictly as a bench guy now. Pretty crazy to think about. I would take him back this offseason no question!

I would love that. More likely, they nontender Schoop and we nontender Beckham. Then we each sign the other for pennies on the dollar.

I feel pretty bad for Schoop. He's a very likable guy and was finally turning his bad year around with an amazing hot streak.

I doubt he's getting out of this platoon  role unless there's an injury, but I hope he comes up with some clutch hits in Milwaukee's playoff race anyhow. 

The Brewers were already kind of logjammed with position players before this trade.

Baseball gods are punishing him for skipping Fanfest.

Four months on the 2018 Orioles wasn't punishment enough?

And why are they punishing me? I was looking forward to watching Schoop in a playoff run as a diversion from watching the  Orioles.

You think the baseball gods care about collateral damage?

    • The part of this no one (at least that I've seen) talks about is what is the impact of sign stealing?  Of course we have no real data whatsoever.  No double-blind studies of how Jose Altuve would hit with and without knowing what's coming.  We have no idea how often he got the signs.  We have some apples-to-pears data from home/road games, but home/road splits are going to be different anyway.  And the data is mixed; Altuve had a big home split last year, but an equally big away split in 2018. It's like PEDs.  No really good data on anything, so the assumption is that it takes an average dude and turns him into an MVP.  But the reality is almost certainly much messier, much less clear cut.  Some people did it all the time, some rarely, some never.  The benefits were almost certainly all over the place from negative impacts from side effects to massive performance gains.  But we're just guessing.  Same thing with sign stealing.  Some will assume that this is worth 25 wins to the Astros, but we have no idea if it's even a significant thing.  For all we know it's like corking your bat; the benefits of that over legal bats are usually zero or worse.  Sign stealing has been so prevalent over the years we've all heard the stories of batters who didn't want to know.  It messes with their approach and their heads if they're tipped off to what's probably coming. In the end we can probably make the assumption that stealing signs helps the average batter somewhat.  But we have no idea of the actual impact.
    • I think “otherworldly” is a huge overstatement of what he’d need to be offensively to compensate for his defense.      Last year he was worth 0.1 rWAR, -0.2 fWAR, so basically replacement level.   He was 48th of 68 catchers who had at least 100 plate appearances in fWAR, so that places him solidly in the middle of second string catchers in overall value.    With a decent improvement in his offense, he’d be above average overall for a backup catcher.     Somewhere between .750-.775 OPS would take him off the cusp, IMO.   I don’t consider that “otherworldly.” By the way, I’m using WAR because it’s available, but I don’t completely trust it for catchers.    
    • Yes, but we have out performed them in the offseason getting rid of Villar and Bundy. 
    • This one slipped by me until Roch mentioned it today in his blog.   He was signed on Jan 10th. This looks like a Wojo signing to me.    Long time minor league starter,  who has had a cup of coffee in the majors. From the Dominican. Between AAA and the winter league his stats this past season are: 19-3,    2.01 ERA,  29 S,   188.1 IP,  171 H,   162 SO,  1.019 WHIP He played with Houston at AAA in 2016 going 12-1, 3.12 ERA in the PCL.   So Elias knows  him well. Valdez doesn't look like someone that is ticketed for the AAA rotation that already has 6 starters in it.   If he shows something in ST he could be in the O's rotation or long relief.  If he doesn't show enough in ST he is probably gone. https://www.baseball-reference.com/register/player.fcgi?id=valdez001ces
