Do we really need shoring up? You have Pearce, Henry, and McPhee replaces Urban. I’d say that’s about 90% of your interior DL snaps. 

The other two slots are DE and we have been Judon, Ferguson, and Wormley, Bowser, and T Williams

Unless he is a serious upgrade at DE I’m betting he’d have to come cheap

He would be a nice addition if they can make it work with the cap. He would be our only interior pass rusher.

McPhee and Urban do very different things.  McPhee lost a bit of weight when he went to Chicago to rush the passer more.

Sure but you have plenty of size/weight with Williams and Henry.

That DT position is so critically important to the Ravens defense I wouldnt mind spending more on it.

That said i think they have other needs, but the availability of solutions at those positions doesnt seem to be there.

The Ravens could also just be driving up the price as his main suitor seems to be Cleveland.

But neither offer anything as far as a pass rush, which is why I was always against giving that big contract to Brandon Williams.

Yeah.  Our pass rush was anemic even with Suggs.  And let me tell you the other team made Suggs a focus in pass blocking.

He stays in division, knows the guys there a little more.  I am okay with the ravens not using their cap space here.

According to the guys at 105.7 part of his reasoning was the dangerous environment in Baltimore City.

I dont buy it.  Did he say that?  These guys practice in Owings mills.  They live in mansions in Owings mills and further out.  90% of their lives take place outside out the city.

He might like to go to clubs. Not too many clubs in Owings Mills.

    • I don't imagine Mason Williams will be able to play the next few days so we will probably get to see more of Hays on this homestand.
    • From a purely impersonal point of view, I agree with you.    But in the real world, guys who have been with the club most of the year and have made some contributions aren’t going to be completely cut off.    They’ll get tossed a bone here and there.     And yes, I realize that one can debate whether Smith or Wilkerson  “made some contributions.”    
    • It was intended as a wisecrack.    The mores of 1976 weren’t the same as today.    Believe me, Weaver said a lot worse.     As to Cuellar, I understand Weaver made the remark after Cuellar complained about not getting enough starts in 1976, a year in which he went 4-13 with a 4.96 ERA (66 ERA+).    To me it was just Weaver’s colorful way of saying that he felt he’d given Cuellar plenty of chances that year.    Not a comment on Cuellar’s overall performance during his career.    And my point in quoting Weaver was that Cuellar got a lot more chances that year than a pitcher without his track record would have gotten.     Even Earl Weaver believed that a guy who had earned it over a long period of time deserved some rope.   Buck was far from alone in that regard.   
    • They have to many players on the team.  I think they should be evaluating the guys who need evaluating.  I think we can close the book on Smith and Wilkerson.
    • I would keep Villar.  He is a good major league player.  We have too few of them to give them away.
    • It was a cheap shot on his first wife as well.
    • I haven't done the full 40-man eval but I'd protect him over the other guys you listed. Would the plus curve and the slider that is more slurrvy, I think he's got a pretty good chance of being a solid bullpen arm. From July to the end of the year batters slashed .147/.284/.206/.490 off him with a 0.47 ERA over 19.1 IP with 22 Ks and 11 BBs. Agreed the fastball command needs to tighten up a bit but at 93-95, it has enough on it to keep guys honest even when he not commanding as well.
