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.

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.

    • I was a little disappointed that Junior Lara, who got a late start in the DSL but did well there, wasn’t invited to Instructs.   I still expect he’ll play in the FCL next year.   
    • How far is Bellinger from free agency?  It would be nice to get him to sign to an extension, but I don't see a reason for him to do so.  If he even partially rebounds, he would want a $100 mill deal. 
    • My wife and I decided to watch this HBO miniseries after it won several Emmys, including Kate Winslet for best actress in a limited series (7 episodes each about an hour).   It’s fantastic.   It’s about a police detective (the title character Mare) in a small, run down Pennsylvania town, where everyone knows everyone and half the people are related.  Mare has a lot of baggage of her own, slowly revealed as she tries to solve a murder that happens in the town.  Winslet is fantastic in the role, and the whole cast is great.  There are plot twists right to the end.  Highly recommend it.   
    • Hey Sportsfan; Thank you for the compliments.  So there are 3 DSL guys in Florida now. 17 year old Samuel Basallo received $1.3 million.  The biggest bonus of the Elias Era.  He was expected to sign with the Yankees.  He was very good batting .239/.338/.410 for a .748 OPS.  5 homers, 8 doubles.  Now in Instructional League.  Led Orioles 1 in homers and RBIs 17 year oldShortstop Maikol Hernandez received $1.2 million.  He hit .231/.340/.308 for a .647 OPS.  No homers, only 4 for 7 in steals. He is in the Instructional League so they still believe in him. 17 year old 3rd baseman Anderson De Los Santos received $350,00. He hit a robust..324/.409/.495 for a .905 OPS.  He also filled in at short, but made to many errors.  A little error prone at 3rd, but he's a converted shortstop.  Only 18 strikeouts in 127 at bats, 15 walks.  6 doubles, 2 triples, 3 homers, 3 for 4 steals.  Tremendous 1st year, now in the Instructructional League.   17 year old speedy centerfielder Junior Lara received $160,00.  Batted .344/.434/.500 in only 77 at bats.  So he missed half the season with an injury. 17 year old Rightfielder Wilmer Feliciano received $400,000.  He struggled with strikeouts and groudouts.  Hit .202/.312/.353 for a .665 OPS. Hit 4 doubles, 1 triple, 4 homers.  Also 3 for 3 in steals.  119 at bats, 45 strikeouts, 70% groundouts to 30% flyouts.  Terrible ratios for a big-time power hitter.  I would think his swing can be corrected. I was disappointed in Orioles 1.  13 and 39 overall.  With all those bonus babies, still a young team. Orioles 2 was a competitive team with modest bonus players.  25 wins 30 losses. Their most intriguing player was 18 year old Shortstop Frederick Benscome. He was a late Class of 2019 signee.  6 feet 160lbs left handed power from a shortstop. 142 at bats, 6 doubles,4 triples, 2 homers, 11 walks, only 18 strikeouts.  10 steals in 13 attempts. 60% flyouts to 40 % ground outs.  I would have thought he should be in Instructional League teaching others how to make contact and put the ball in the air !!!!    
    • I'm not a big supporter of former major league stars as managers.  The history of baseball is full of players who were great as players and failures as managers.  Let Adam prove himself in the minors somewhere before getting a manager job with the O's.  I hate to look back on past manager searches, where the guy's main qualification seems to be that he played for the O's.
