Roch: Caleb will not be back, "guaranteed"

One time I got to go into the Senators dugout before a game to get autographs.   I was 13.    I went in there, and Paul Casanova was in there smoking a cigarette.   That shocked me.    Then I asked for his autograph.   He said “sure, kid” and proceeded to stub his cigarette out  in his catcher’s mitt.  I was astounded that a professional athlete would treat his equipment that way.

I've got a new hero.

"I'm Terry Kennedy and I'm slightly hungover.  But drinking every night is the only way I can cope with being a part of the '88 Orioles."

He'd been with the Padres for six years.  Played in the '84 Series.  On a bad day in San Diego it's 71 degrees, and you're playing with Tony Gwynn.  One day your agent calls you up and says you're heading to Charm City.  You're 31, you've squatted behind home plate for 1500 games.  Half of April it's 48 degrees, then all summer it's 97 and humid as hell.  He survives a year of that, and then comes 0-21.  He probably was drunk, and I don't blame him.

There were so many posters here in those days acting like House was the answer to all the problems he was just a few at bats and a chance away from being a  stand out hitter.  Folks were nuts over him.  The glory days.  

House and Jon Knott.  That was a dark and stormy time during the 14 losing seasons.

I had forgotten Knott but Drungos thread brought me back. Ah the good ole days. Just some perculating.

And shame on all of you for not recognizing the greatness that was Taylor Teagarden.

He might've been slow, but he wasn't Mark Parent slow. I've never seen a slower major league baseball player.

Wieters could give him a slow jog for his money.

He had previously been beating the drum all offseason that Caleb remained an option to be re-signed, so I wonder what changed to make Roch so sure here.

Glad Caleb isn't coming back.

Both #1 and #3 are equally plausible.  I don't see him retiring.  He hasn't made enough money where even a minor league deal with an opt out wouldn't be appealing to him. 

 

Gosh I don't know what he made but I imagine it's a lot better than what most folks make.

It would not surprise me in the least if Caleb doesn't one day go into broadcasting. 

Read this sentence three times.   I don’t think you meant to say what you said!

    • Not trying to be smart, but I thought Cal had sold off his share of the Aberbeen, along with another of his minor league holders. Nobody said why, but, shortly later, his divorce became public, and people assume he was putting together her part of the holdings.
    • I'm don't think I'm making any large leaps assuming that Aberdeen is hands-off because of Cal Ripken.
    • Why should Delmarva get sacrificed?  After all, they were the Minor League Team of the Year and has a modern stadium in Salisbury.  Screw convenience... it's nice to have professional baseball come through the Eastern Shore since 1996 and I don't see why that should be tampered with.  An increase in affiliation could lead to the team putting more seats down the left and right side of the diamond to encourage more revenue to accommodate their increased affiliation.
    • At this point, this is throwing good money after bad.  Any appeal is almost certain to be doomed.  What error has the court committed to warrant review?  Angelos just lived through one of his biggest fears.  The Nats winning a World Series.
    • On the heels of a game where Sam Koch didn't punt once. Hoping this formats correctly:   Tm Year G Pnt Pnt/G   Rk Tm Year G Pnt Pnt/G 1 HOU 1990 16 34 2.13   1 BAL 2019 10 21 2.10 2 SDG 1982 9 23 2.56               3 SFO 1993 16 42 2.63               4 NOR 2018 16 43 2.69               5 STL 2001 16 43 2.69               6 LAR 2018 16 43 2.69               7 STL 2000 16 44 2.75               8 KAN 2018 16 45 2.81               9 NWE 2007 16 45 2.81               10 DEN 2008 16 46 2.88               11 NOR 2011 16 47 2.94   2 DAL 2019 10 29 2.90 12 SDG 2011 16 47 2.94   3 LAC 2019 10 29 2.90 13 DET 1971 14 42 3.00   4 ATL 2019 10 30 3.00 14 ATL 2016 16 48 3.00               15 IND 2006 16 48 3.00               16 SFO 1992 16 49 3.06               17 WAS 2016 16 49 3.06               18 DET 1972 14 43 3.07               19 NWE 2008 16 50 3.13   5 KAN 2019 10 31 3.10 20 MIA 1972 14 44 3.14              
    • If anyone predicted this is how Lamar would be at this point, I have my doubts about their veracity.  That being said, I remember the player RG3 was before he broke his knee, and he has never been the player since.  IF Lamar can stay healthy, his future looks very bright. Right before the season started, a caller into 105.7 asked about McSorely and his words were "IF God forbid something happened to Lamar. Rob Long got all indignant and unnecessarily confrontational. "Lemme ask you something why are you asking that question?  Why are YOU askin' that question?"
    • I don't think the premise is very different. JJ was traded for whatever we could get  because we didn't want to pay him his arb number, which would be the same thing happening to Villar. You can make a very reasonable case that Villar is a regression candidate for 2020. Like @weams mentioned.. nobody bit at the trade deadline last year when he was cheaper and having a career year, which I think is telling. Milwaukee practically handed him to us. It seems that we value him on this board much more than other league execs do. But like I've said three times now, I'm not trying to bash Villar or shoo him out of town. I'd be just fine if they decided to keep him and pay his arb salary. I'm just pointing out that it's not some egregious baseball sin to non-tender him. It's a reasonable alternative.
