Will Araujo Make The Team?

Recommended Posts

I think he’s expendable. I wonder if they’d keep him on for 17 days and then try to pass him through waivers.

It isn't the 12 days I'm concerned about.  It's the spot on the 40.

In Mike I trust.

What if we need to drop somebody from the 40 man who we think is more valuable than Araujo?

Why would we need to do that?  Araujo is already on the 40-man.

I wasn’t clear.   Assume we need to add someone to the 40-man roster and we need to drop someone.   Are we going to keep Araujo just because he’s a Rule 5 guy, or are we going to drop him if he’s the least valuable guy on there?

I don't know. I kind of doubt any of the waiver claims we might grab are that important. Or doubt that any of our players we need to DFA might not pass thru waivers. Or c'est la vie. Like tnt said, In Mike We Trust. It just seems silly we've kept Araujo all year, 73(?) official days worth. What's 17 more?

Is he an asset?

 

I've always liked his change up. I think its an out pitch.  However, with all these talks of spin rate, who knows how much Elias and his guys value the change up.  I believe he will be on the roster.  Does he need to be on the team for 17 days or games? If its 17 days, that puts us at April 13th.  Put him at AA/AAA for a season and learn the analytics system like everyone else and see if he's a piece.

Pretty sure it's days.

He has a better track record than Dan... Not as Forrest Gump-y either.

    • If you think trading Villar for scraps is a good idea (which is the same thing as "cash dumping" Jim Johnson, btw), then non-tendering him really isn't a big leap from there and it likely has the same end result. My point in all of this has been that non-tendering Villar to save money isn't some preposterous outcome. It's very defensible, and it's possible that no other team wants to touch him at his arb-salary while giving up anything of potential future value in return.
    • I think Luke's pretty high on Cumberland.  But other than that I generally agree with your take.
    • Major leagues definitely needs the minor leagues.  Players don't go from college straight to MLB.  Scrimmages are not going to make you major league ready.  It would cost them even more money to have games without fans. Plus how much would it cost to shuttle players back  and forth from Florida to say Detroit?   I think you are truly under estimating the value minor league baseball provides to MLB. I think this is all about the lawsuit from minor league players saying they are being paid below minimum wage.  I guess a simpler solution is lower the amount of bonuses you pay drafted players and increase salaries.  That would make the pay more equitable.  And provide housing for the players.  And cater their food.     
    • I hate to ruin this guy’s narrative, but Kevin Goldstein is hardly one of the “young finance and Wall Street bros.”    I don’t know exactly how old he is, but he’s got a 21-year old son, and so far as I know, he has no background on Wall Street or finance, having previously been a long-standing scouting guru for Baseball Prospectus.   And, he didn’t “immediately” send out his email after getting hired; he’d been working for the Astros for 5 years at that point.   
    • Just based on the eye test, this is the best team in football.  They are a more complete team than anyone else.  You do worry about Jackson getting injured, but I think every player other than Brady (somehow, in spite of his middle age) is susceptible to injury at any given time.  Just looking at the schedule, I think the Ravens will get the 2 seed.  It isn't that they can't win their last 6, because they can.  I just don't think New England is losing any more games.  The Patriots are not the Patriots of old and their final 15-1 record will be more indicative of their fortunate scheduling (having Dallas and KC at home helps a lot, as does 6 games against a pathetic division).  The Chiefs are not beating the Ravens twice, especially if the game is in Baltimore.  And no other AFC team is capable of winning in New England in January.  So I think it comes down to yet another Ravens-Patriots showdown in Mass.  The good news is this may be the only franchise not scared of the Patriots "aura and mystique," but they will have to beat them twice.  Hard to do. 
    • So baseball want in increase their fanbase and tweak the game, and keep current fans, bring back old fans, and attract new fans. So you go and screw with everybody minor league system.  
    • My granddaddy shot a 72 on his 72nd birthday. I shot a 60 back on my 60th, those rotating ducks was no match for me.
