Mancini Trade Package

I agree Roy. I see a young player having the typical "sophomore slump". He is a hitter in my opinion. I don't care if he is not a prototypical power hitting first baseman. I think he will provide adequate power for a first baseman, and imo he is a very solid contributor long term.

I think he's going to be a bit below average on offense and defense at first and will rest in that zone between replacement level and league average.

And I think his hit tool is better than that. Time will tell.

I think that’s probably right.   “Second division regular,” both in scout-speak and reality.

Corner player off the bench until he becomes too expensive.

Completely agree.  It's good to see him finally come around.  Was getting worried there...

Since Mancini's first game on September 20, 2016:
HR leaders
Machado 58, 264 G
Schoop 50, 257 G
Mancini 44, 277 G
Trumbo 44, 248 G
Davis 42, 250 G
Jones 40, 279 G

After that, the list drops off significantly with the next player being "Beef" Wellington Castillo, who only played for the Orioles in 2017, hitting 20 HRs.

RBI leaders
Machado 163
Schoop 150
Mancini 124
Jones 124
Trumbo 115
Davis 107

OPS leaders (min 150 G)
Machado .833
Schoop .791
Mancini .775
Jones .748
Trumbo .730
Rickard .653*
Davis .646
Joseph .639

BA leaders (min 150 G)
Jones .275
Machado .275
Schoop .273
Mancini .268
Trumbo .249
Rickard .236*
Joseph .232
Davis .194**

The bottom line is Mancini leads everyone left on the club in 3 major categories and is second to Jones in BA.  Obviously, the two best performers for the O's were Machado and Schoop.

Notes
*Yeah, even Rickard leads Davis in OPS and BA, albeit his sample size is in less than 1/2 of Davis' ABs.
** Including tonight's game, Davis is hitting .196 with 52 HRs in his last 1,000 ABs dating back to 8/20/16.   In 2013, he hit 53 HRs in 584 ABs.  He's no longer "the Crusher," no matter how many times Bordick still uses that name for him.

Mancini is by the far the least of this team's problems.  The main thing, is that he needs to be the 1B or DH.  But other than than, leave him alone.  He'll hit dingers, he'll get on base at a decent clip, and he'll hit for a decent average.  I think this year he's dealt with some nagging issues from busting up his knee in the 1st half.

What is the average for a 1st  baseman with power in the American league anymore.  Only 2 guys in the American League that have qualified as a 1st baseman have OPS over .800 Abreu at .821 and Smoak at at .813.   .

I said before a two year younger version of CJ Cron.We shall see if he has a better year next year but trending that way.Teams are busting him in so he cant extend his arms.Yesterday,came up twice with man on third and less then two outs and did not get the runner in.Then hits a solo homer. His average with runners in scoring position is terrible.

That's called "turning the pitch inside-out."

And over the rightfield wall!

Having a great game is nice, but he’s been way below average this year.   Hope he finishes strong and bounces back next year.

    • You can believe what you want. I do think that it is more than an arms length relationship. I've been around some of the reporters indeed some who have moved on and I never heard too much about Roch sugar coating things. I have seen that with some folks associated with MASN though. Real journalism requires at least an attempt at integrity.  Obviously as someone who has been covering one team so so very long there is a lean towards the polyannic.  If you are looking for the big expose to expose the horrors of all things Angelosian, he's not your guy. Pick Ken or Nester for that crap. Billionaires are not great people. We get it.  Back to the player subject here.   
    • I've never agreed being slow about promoting/keeping guys down that are already on the 40 man. You are burning option years w/o knowing how much work they need to do to adjust to the majors. You end up putting yourself in a out of options crapshoot a few years down the line with talented, but unfinished players. We know why they do it, but in a pure trying to build the best team I don't find it optimal in any way. It's a business thing, not building a better team thing.  backlogging non 40 man players into the rule 5 pool will happen regardless in a re-build. Though slow playing doesn't really help either. (It can disguise players and keep them from being picked if they are still in A ball)
    • Absolutely.  Even if they just guarantee you a one-year deal at $1M you might as well take it.  You just have to be willing to adapt to the Japanese culture, baseball and otherwise.  Not everyone does. Matt Stairs was in professional baseball for 20+ years, his time in Japan was 60 games of a .712 OPS when he was 27.  
    • And you know this how? I’m just trying to get clarification. I cannot recall a time when he was overly critical about the organization or a move that they made.   It’s just common sense that you don’t bite the hand that feeds you. That conflict moved needle from writing what he wants IMO  
    • I heard the clips on the radio this morning. I’m fine with the process and it seems like the deal progressed fairly quick. I would have been interested in the question of why quantity over quality. Obviously they didn’t play the whole show so maybe it was asked.    I don’t mind the deal as much as some here. But I would have preferred a player less with a more prestigious main player. But it’s mainly stating a preference for conversation as I really think it was a decent trade.
    • I think this would be a good signing. I think it's important to see what we've got (pitching wise) and the best way to do that is to back them up with above-average defenders behind him.  If we're not concerned about winning, let's try it.
    • Have no idea about the other player. Just know about Iglesias . Roch writes what he wants. He's as independent as Connolly or Trezza.  You write bad stuff too much, you lose access. The way of the world.
