Can we see Stewart, Cisco, Mountcastle instead of Martin, Severino, and Rickard?

Recommended Posts

No need to rush Mountcastle, even if the Orioles are struggling. The others are debatable. I'd be a little surprised if they are ready to give up on Martin though. I hoped they would get Iglesias for shortstop in the off-season.

Hard to break into the O's right now if you are a corner outfielder or a first baseman.  

I'd personally get rid of Alberto and have Wilkerson spell the infielders when one of them needs to sit.  That gets DJ up here.  Wilkerson could be playing 2B on a lot of days with Villar at SS.  The other option is to send down Rickard and just play Wilkerson everyday. I'm not necessarily against that.  They like Wilkerson's defense enough to play Rickard in RF on days they are both in the lineup. 

DFA'ing Davis in July when he's still hitting under .200 and OPS'ing under .600 could get Mountcastle up here. 

They probably want to give Wynns a longer look as the backup.  Severino isn't going anywhere.  Still expect to see Sisco up at some point.

Martin stays. He's the best defensive player on the team. Now, if only he'd learn to choke up on the bat a little bit.....

Still can't believe he signed for peanuts and we had no interest. I just can't with the Rule 5 thing anymore. It doesn't work. It's the same story every year.

I'm just salty after tonight's loss. I meant more in terms of the younger players starting to right the ship.

Rickard, Severino, Castro Down, Alberto DFA are three easy moves. I am openly sceptical of Sisco’s defense, but hell, why not try him out anyway. Stewart can come up and lumber around the OF. Can’t be worse then the slop we’re throwing out there now( and sadly I said the same thing last season. Our OF defense isn’t appreciably improved 😞 )

Agree. He’s not going anywhere especially because Villar at SS would require Wilkerson at 2B and make Rickard a full-time CF again, and no thanks.

The advanced fielding metrics on Martin don't agree that he is valuable with the glove.

So what? We don’t have any SS in the system, and Villar at SS would weaken both SS and 2B.

The so what is Martin can’t hit and is a mediocre at best fielding. He is only here until his replacement comes along via the farm system, trade or draft. He has been a disappointment.

I don’t argue with that at all, but we can’t get rid of him now because we don’t have anybody with whom to replace him.

    • Houston has also been able to acquire arms late in the draft or cheaply in the international market and develop them into trade assets. I'm prepping for Rule 5 draft stuff and it's unbelievable how many good arms they have in the minors that came out of nowhere (10+ round pick or older international signees). They all throw hard and miss bats. 
    • Hopefully the Nats finish this thing off today.  They have gone I think 81-40 since starting 19-31.  That is remarkable.  The Cardinals do what they always do in October....overachieve.  Thankfully, they are about to get stuffed by the much better team.  This will be a really good WS matchup regardless of who comes out of the AL. 
    • Eh, I don't really buy that in this case.  Liberatore is a lefty, has better mechanics, and more projection remaining, so I think there is a fair case for Liberatore then and now. It's really close though, Rodriguez is the better pitch at the moment, but no one really cares who is the better pitcher at 19 in low A ball. 
    • The old Liberatore vs Rodriguez debate. I think most “experts” will always try and rank Liberatore slightly higher than Rodriguez because they all criticized the O’s for “reaching” for Rodriguez. 
    • Someone pointed out before that Vaughn got pitched around his last year in NCAA. Let’s see what happens to Torkelson when/if he gets that treatment.  I don’t see how we could draft Torkelson.  Even if we trade Mancini, Mountcastle is still likely a 1B.  When team building I don’t think you pencil in your future 1B and DH spots first.   I’d like to see us draft a bat, but if the best SP is available then I’m open to that. I think that bats are safer picks and would help the system more.  Hopefully Detroit makes a mistake at 1:1 and we get the player Elias thinks is #1 overall. Lots of baseball to play till the draft. 
    • HOU got burned with taking Pitchers Appel and Aiken high. HOU has been grow the bats and buy the arms since then. Using their prospect bats to acquire proven SP.  I do think bats are safer picks over pitchers. Last draft we took lots of bats compared to pitchers. It could’ve been lots of factors at play, but I think it was a strategic decision.  Not having the number one pick in next years’ draft means we’ll likely be deciding on the 2nd best SP, Torkelson, or other NCAA and HS bats.    
    • I hope Buck gets the Phillies job.
