He’s still available, I believe.

Signed with the Diamondbacks last month and is in minor league camp now.

Smith with 3-3 today with 2 home runs and a single. Based on the the way Elias and Hyde are doing things, he will be sent to the minors after the game.

Could be a classic case of a guy just needing a fresh start. 

I'm betting it is a classic case of SSS.

Remember when Beckham hit 400 for a month?

I remember when Caleb hit HRs in five straight games once.

Or when Jake Fox looked like Babe Ruth in the spring.

Lol. Meanwhile, wildcard has him as the early favorite to win AL MVP.

Beckham just needed a fresh start, too.    And when that fresh start was over, he returned to being bad.

Smith is 12-for-28 with five homers since we picked him up on March 8.

Spring results do matter if the FO trades for you.

I still think it was kind of "sorry," for an Adam Jones deal the Orioles assured was 100% done until Jones said "no."

It was reported that is was the Asher deal. Nothing to do with Jones.

    • It helps when your closer goes 47 for 47.
    • That’s worth looking at.  It looks like he’s added a few pounds.  It may not be in sync with the rest of his body as he gets used to the difference.  He can plant, he can pivot and hop into his moves-bouncy in the field-but if there’s anything yet to be demonstrated with consistency it’s that.  I’m going to say that because of his feet and legs being much better than average and with the coaches and guys always on him, this will not be an inconsistency for long.  Darell is being challenged often at camp and has responded in some good ways.  I noticed this as a positive sign already.  Considering the other two, in the drills I’ve seen no issue in any way.  Ortiz has no problem with the arm motion, it’s brief, and the steam on the throw is there.  The relay drill is his chance to show it, he can spin his core into it and step.  Grenier hits targets well consistently with no throw issues to match his no glove issues.  
    • I'm sure it would violate some laws.
    • 2018 OPS+ 49 and 2019 OPS+ 60.  Also it's not illegal it's just against MLB rules. 
    • As I’ve said before. the new regime has had a full season and now a full offseason with Davis I’m sure with oberservations and analysis from last season they put a offseason program in place for Davis to follow so far from everything I’ve read and noticeably seen in added bulk along with a small sample size of at bats it appears to have had a positive impact on CD. I have faith in this regime and believe if anybody can get the best out of CD they can.
    • not rude at all.  nah you can find some 1912s and whatnot for reasonable prices
    • 2019 ST: .189/.318/.432/.751 in 37 official at-bats, incl. 3 HR, 7 RBI, 7 BB and 19 K.
