8:44am: Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill announced to reporters that Straily has been released by the organization (Twitter link via Joe Frisaro of MLB.com). He’ll receive the aforementioned 45 days’ termination pay and can now sign with any club for any amount of money (on top of that termination pay from Miami).

Sorry, just catching up...does this mean that it has already happened, and there will be a bidding war essentially?

I guess Chen has a roster spot all locked down, with his $20 million guaranteed money.

Yet Oriole fans want Davis DFA for way more than $20 million,. LOL

You can not even begin to compare the worst season in a long time to an injured pitcher.

I comparing 2 veteran players with guaranteed money that neither team is willing to DFA, and cost them money, but free up a roster spot.

Wouldn’t be a bad pickup for the league min., but at this point paying him anything more than that doesn’t fit what Elias is doing. Maybe a Karns type deal at best.

That’s weird. The source is the same, the time stamp is the same but the information is different.

Yes.  Very strange   Looks like they made an error and corrected it.  Or Frisaro mislead them with an incorrect tweet saying Straily had been released.

It now reads:

8:44am: Marlins president of baseball operations Michael Hill announced to reporters that Straily has been released by the organization (Twitter link via Joe Frisaro of MLB.com). Mish tweets that Straily is going on release waivers today, meaning he’ll become a free agent if he clears on Wednesday at 1pm ET. Assuming that happens, he’ll receive the aforementioned 45 days’ termination pay and can can sign with any club for any amount of money (on top of that termination pay from Miami).

So, assuming that their second post is correct and the first one incorrect, you are right and Straily is on waivers. rather than released, and not yet a free agent.

If we want him, we'd probably have to claim him.  If he's a FA, I have to think he could find a better situation.

Chen has been bad for the Marlins, but nowhere near as epicly bad as Davis.

Frobby,

You are indeed right.

But, if the Marlins wont drop Chen for $20 million.

Why do some Oriole fans want the Orioles to drop him for $90 million.

He comes to the Orioles it will be a less stressed enviroment and if he pitches well he will be playing for the playoffs at the end of the year.  Not for the Orioles but for whoever we trade him to.

Less stressful than the Marlins?

You drop a guy when you conclude he’s playing so badly that he’s hurting the team compared to any random minor leaguer you might call up and that he’s unlikely to improve.    The paycheck is irrelevant except maybe makes the burden of proof on “unlikely to improve” a little higher.

Let’s say you buy a really nice 10 pound roast and pay $100 for it for a big family meal.    But you leave it in the refrigerator too long and it goes off-color and smells really bad.   Are you going to eat that roast just because you paid $100 for it, or are you going to throw it away and eat something else?    The only difference between the roast and Chris Davis is that we’re hoping he miraculously regains color and starts smelling better.

If Straily is released and available for less than a million, I think Elias bites, but other than that, I don't see the Orioles claiming a $5 million salary. 

Straily is not the difference between being bad and epically bad. He might be an upgrade but unless Elias thinks he can flip him, it's not worth the risk.
