Still, It's closer to the opposite than it is to being the same thing. "All the time" and "several times over the course of the season" are not even reasonably close to similar.
Also, I have watched a fudgeton of baseball and have not seen an outfielder as inept and unathletic as DJ. He makes Trumbo look like Clemente. At least Jeff Stone was coordinated. Not sure you could see the body of work Stewart has produced this season "several times per year" no matter how many teams you follow.
Ya know something? Fans get upset all the time that there is no loyalty in baseball anymore. (or any sports). How could Manny not try to work out a long term deal with the O's? Booooooo Manny. How could Moose leave and sign with the Yankees? Booooo Mussina.
And yet here is someone on the Hangout. The best of the best. Starting a thread about releasing a solid player who is coming off cancer treatment. Well you know what? Boooooooooooooo Hangout for this even being a thread.
In the first game of the season, the Orioles were blown out by the lowly-regarded Red Sox by a score of 12-2 ....... subsequently, a lot of Oriole fans were sure that the men dressed in Orange-and-Black were on their way to a final record of about 15 Wins and 45 Losses.
The Orioles rebounded by winning the next 2 games of that opening series, and have well surpassed the 15-win mark overall ........ let's repeat the process and win the next 2 games against the New Englanders, just like we did in the first series of the season.
If you think Diaz is a lock to contribute, I wonder if you could look to trade Stewart. Has he done enough to establish some trade value? The BA looks bad and defense is questionable, but he has put up close to 1 WAR with a .380 OBP and obvious pop. Is he a better trade candidate than Nunez?
