Brewers non-tender Schoop.

Yes he had a down year, but lets not be ridiculous. Schoop is definitely a better player than Nunez. Small sample sizes from no names prospects don't carry much weight with me. 

No name prospect? Dunno. He was a pretty well-regarded international signing. No. 20 prospect for the A's in 2017. Plenty of stuff out there about his talent level and power potential. I think folks sleep on this guy a little bit, but that's just me. Agree the sample is small, though. But I'm looking forward to seeing him for a full season.

I am happy Schoop is not on the team.  He had one good season in his career. I expect him to be another Chris Davis.  Except his OBP was much lower than Davis was.  People want him signed and then there will be 200 page thread about how he should retire to save the team money. It's as if you have learned nothing after Davis and Trumbo. 

Sorry, I disagree with you.

a 2.4 is nothing to sneeze about.

1.3 and 1.4 are decent for a rookie MLBer.

Is he though? In his first extended look at the ML level last season, Nunez hit 8 bombs and got on base at .322 in 261 PA at age 24. Good for 1.2 WAR after coming to Baltimore. Small sample, but he hung in there pretty well. Certainly capable of being a 20-hr guy. 

Schoop is a more impact player, perhaps, definitely a higher ceiling. But he only had an OBP remotely close when he had his career year in 2017. I don't know that you can say Schoop would be a better 3B than Nunez. We haven't seen enough of Schoop at 3B. 

Schoop has the arm strength  and accurate to play 3B.   His range should play there.   He has better power than Nunez.    Nunez gets the yips at times throwing at 3B.  His range is only average to below average.    He may get better.  He is only 25.  But I think Schoop has a higher ceiling.

Power isn't everything, as we all know too well around here. When Schoop is a complete hitter he's incredible. Remains to be seen if that was a fluke year. Disagree about the yips. Otherwise, no real arguments.

If Schoop fell to the O's he should play 3B not 2B.

If whoever would play 2B in that scenario is better than Nunez at 3B then I say sure, why not? I’d rather see what Nunez can bring over an entire season though. What I really want to see is Schoop signed and then traded to the Brewers at the deadline for more than what he’s worth lol

The only way Schoop fits is if he can play 3B.  I'd keep Villar at 2B and get an all-glove, no bat guy for SS, be it a cheap FA, Rule 5, whatever.  If Schoop can play 3B adequately, which I think is probable but definitely not certain, I'd be good on a 1yr "prove it" deal for cheap money (<$5M).  Otherwise, move forward and wish him well.

Schoop has looked bad at 3B in limited time. I have to think if he could play 3B, we would have done Schoop 3B, Machado SS, and Beckham 2B. If Schoop could have played 3B all along, Buck and Dan should have been fired a long time ago.

Jon would have gotten his UA tights in a bunch if demoted to 3b, IMHO.  Also losing the keystone bond with his bud.

I can see both sides of the argument. I'm not a Schoop fan either I just think the odds of him being better than Nunez next year are pretty good. Nunez's defense has also been a question mark throughout his career right? To the point where the didn't know if he'd stick at 3B or need to be move to 1B or the OF? Either way he's younger than I thought he was so I have no problem giving him some rope this season. The teams needs to finish the season with a better idea of which prospects will stick and which won't and the only way to do that is to play them.

I have no problem with the team bringing Schoop back pennies on the dollar.  He won't be blocking anyone next season if I am correct.  Hopefully he won't get upset if he plays well and the team flips him again.

Well, Buck and especially Dan should have been fired a long time ago. For sure. Schoop has the tools to be a very good third baseman imo. Is that a move I think the O's should make? Maybe not, his K rate and inconsistent offense is the biggest concern to me. I think Nunez is pretty interesting, I think I may prefer to go the Nunez route.

Nunez had 1.3 WAR in 60 games last season and Villar had 2.7 WAR.  I would rather roll with them.  We could use a catcher and a Shortstop.  That is what we should be discussing.

    • Lol. Because we have to room to make our 2 rule 5 selections. 
    • I’m torn on Mckenna. I see your points about Fry and Armstrong. I think we have some relievers that would be “good” if they were on a team that could use them in traditional ways. Like Fry, Scott, Armstrong, Castro, and even Bleier, but we’re not a traditional team. We’re a team struggling to cover innings.  That’s why I Was surprised we let Ynoa and Brooks both go. I could see one but not both. Those were two guys you could stick in any game and say you just gotta eat innings.  Having one inning relievers on this team is pretty pointless, outside of Givens.  Will we be able to do the Norfolk shuttle now, since there really aren’t those guys on the roster now to shuttle up and down?  They’re now prospects that we’d like to leave in their SP regimen. 
    • Why would anyone need to be DFAd in that scenario with five open roster spaces?
    • The O's really needs to add  near term starters.  And to sign them Elias may have to offer a 40 man roster spots.  I see Armstrong and Fry vulnerable to being left go in order to sign some guys that offer more innings. Wojo types.   Kyle Moore says Fenter has three plus pitches.  As bad as the O's need starters I can't see  them exposing a guy like that to the draft.  Even if he ends of being a multi inning reliever if he has three plus pitches he is too good to expose IMO. If the O's had the room I would protect McKenna but when I try to fit him on the 40 man with the need for starters, long relievers and adding Mountcastle I run out of room.  
    • Thanks for the great analysis @Tony-OH @Luke-OH.   Do you guys think Mullins has been officially asked to give up switch hitting?  
    • 26 man roster thought... A six man rotation would benefit everyone. I know, I know... we can barely find 5 SP(really 3), but it could allow us to start Harvey in 3IP stints, and go from there.  Means - would his fb play up, or could it hurt the feel for his secondaries? Bundy - always benefits from the extra rest  Cobb - has been hurt the last two years, so... Wojo - his stuff could play up Akin - a good way to break him into the MLB.  Wasn’t going deep into AAA starts. Harvey - we get to see if he can start with extra rest and a controlled environment. Also this would be a good way to introduce future pitching prospects as either spot starters or for long relief one game. Or why couldn’t we just piggyback guys like they do in the minors to start the year. What is the downside?  We lose 110 instead of 105?
    • Just reminds of how strange a year 2012 was. Roberts was a non-contributor to that team. I can’t say I be same about Markakis, he just caught a tough break from CC. The first time we make the playoffs after all those years and those two weren’t factors in the playoffs.
