TT: Opening Day roster starting to take shape, but questions remain

I get that, I just think the absolute torching of Mullins over ~150 PA in his first taste of the bigs is a bit much for my taste.  Conversely, the suggestion that it would be some sort of travesty for Hays to not start with the big club seems silly as well, in my very humble opinion.

I get it if they don't want to start Hays in Baltimore but if he's still raking when the service clock game is over, he deserves a shot in Baltimore.

I don't think anyone here is torching Mullins, just simply pointing out where he falls short.

There was a thread a couple of days ago where the poster predicted who would be in the next round of cuts. I don’t remember who it was nor can I find it, but hats off to him, because he was almost completely correct.

I think  Davis  turns into Don Long's project.    He keeps a spot on the team but maybe not as a regular.   Long tries to change Davis approach.   Mancini sees a lot more time at 1B.     Hyde just announced today that Mancini will play a lot more 1B this spring.

I remember when a poster claimed that was a possible Flash outcome.

Flaherty WAS a very poor man’s Zobrist. But he earned his pay for us and then some, and I am very glad we had him.

Maybe Jackson can be a middle-class man’s Zobrist?

Flaherty was a homeless man's Zobrist.  They played multiple positions, thats where the comparison ends.

Sure.

And how he finished last season.  And how he can't hit from the right side.  

If he can’t hit from the right side, then have him just hit from the left. Problem solved. Then he platoons with somebody, although I’m not sure who that would best be.

If they're both on the roster by July I am going to be fit to be tied.  

If Mancini is playing more first base, I think that’s a clear indication that Davis is going to be playing less, if he is even around at all.

Yep, here's hoping.

Is Peterson considered to be ahead of Wilkerson on the depth chart? He was really bad last season.

Doesn't look like either is going to make opening day.  They can fight it out in Norfolk.

That’s hilarious!   And correct.    Flaherty is a poor man’s Chris Gomez.

Hays is outplaying Mullins for the CF job.   Mullins has to pick it up or get optioned.

If Mullins doesn’t get a shot now when will he? 

He may not be good enough but spring training isn’t the time to say that.

I think Mullins is the OD CF.  I think Hays gets sent to the minors (wildcard has a stroke) and Mullins gets whatever amount of time to show if he can hack it or not in CF until the time comes to call up Hays when they're done playing the clock game.

Be prepared to be tied up. I'm on your side. I want them to be released PDQ.

They are in different situations.    Trumbo’s still a half decent hitter, who might have a good year if we’re lucky.   Davis has to prove he’s capable of playing Major League Baseball.

    • From MLBTR: The Brewers added three players to their 40-man roster yesterday in advance of the deadline for teams to set their rosters in advance of the Rule 5 Draft.  As you might expect, “these are not 100 percent easy, clear decisions to make on some players,” Brewers president of baseball operations David Stearns told MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy and other reporters.  While Milwaukee has only 36 players on its 40-man, teams often leave spaces open for future additions or other roster maneuvering prior to December 12, when the Rule 5 Draft takes place.  This means that other teams could select some notable Brewers youngsters who weren’t protected, such as right-hander Zack Brown, currently ranked by MLB.com as the third-best prospect in Milwaukee’s farm system.  Brown was quickly ascending up the minor league ladder and was the Brewers’ minor league pitcher of the year in 2018, though his 2019 numbers (5.79 ERA over his first 116 2/3 innings at the Triple-A level) were a step backwards.  Stearns admitted that these struggles “certainly influenced our decision,” though “we still have high hopes for Zack Brown.”  If Brown is chosen, his new team would have to keep him on its Major League roster for the entire 2020 season to gain his permanent rights, or else the team would have to offer Brown back to Milwaukee.
    • Right, right, I’ve read so many threads I get the subject mixed up between them, I had forgotten what this particular post was about.  In response to your comment, it’s pretty obvious that Mike wants 1) Inexpensive warm bodies who can help us muddle through next year, and 2)  solid prospects with legitimate potential who can possibly help us in subsequent years. This guy seems like the latter. I also wonder if the draft is once more going to be pitching heavy in 2020. If so, that makes it a little bit more likely he’ll be wanting present value in a rule five pick, but we shall have to see.
    • Former Orioles right-hander Mike Wright has a deal to pitch next year in the Korean Baseball Organization. Wright, 29, posted a 9.45 ERA and 2.025 WHIP in 10 relief appearances with the Orioles and a 6.75 ERA and 1.813 WHIP in nine games with the Mariners, who acquired him in an April 24 trade and later outrighted him. https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2019/11/os-progressing-toward-deal-with-anthony-sanders-as-first-base-coach.html

    • He is significantly more legit than Dan Clark. He can be brash but he puts in the work.  And also, he hates Dan Clark    
    • I don't think trying to copy Dan Clark counts.
