Scott is 24.  If you know how Scott will be in the future you are probably better at seeing the future than Mike Elias.    

O's management is not playing for today.  They are playing for what players can become.  Some will make it, Some will not.   Scott has a chance to be good in the future if he can find his command.  I am sure he is getting a lot of help from the coaches in the effort to establish  him in  major leagues.

I agree with everything you said, but the fact is all the help hasn’t helped him yet. It is always possible that something will click, but nothing has clicked yet. You look at progress from day one, and he doesn’t seem to be progressing in a meaningful way.  His problems now are the same problems then. I disagree that he has a chance to be good in the future, Because he has shown so little improvement so far.

I’m sure that Mike is giving him a longer leash, and I understand why, but remember, Castro was, what, 24, when the Rockies cut him loose? And they haven’t lost any sleep over the decision.

You answered your own question.

If someone else had Tanner Scott and let him go, we would grab him in a second and release half our roster if we had to.

I think he's one of the many pitchers we've rushed and had bad results.

Yeah but Mike Wright also sat at 97, and Jason Garcia and Castro and Tommy Hunter and etc.

I like Paul Fry and I think he’s going to be a competent pitcher, But I really wish, in this season of auditions, that they had called up someone else. Anyone else. If a marginal guy comes up and is terrible, fine, Send him back down, and release him when somebody better comes along. But I don’t understand the logic in continually calling up the same guys.

Lefty for a lefty and Fry is replacing an injured person, so he doesn't have to be in Norfolk for 10 days.

I understand that, but why not bring up another lefty? One of the older guys in the single-A, perhaps? I’m not following the minor leagues as carefully as I should, so I don’t know who is merely “organizational depth“ and who actually has the potential to be a productive big leaguer, but there’s no need to bring up Paul again right and a desperate need to give as many marginal guys as possible a big league audition.

That would require putting that player on the 40 man roster and dumping someone else.

Yes, I know, there's plenty of dumpable guys on the 40 man.   And we've had plenty of churn at the back end of the 40 man roster, what are we at, maybe 10 DFAs so far this season?

But that has its limits.

Still eligible to be a future contestant.  

 

 

Too bad... did we really offer him a spot on the Norfolk roster.... perhaps it is a misunderstanding and he has been completely fired.

    • Why are you picking June 1?   Under current rules, they could call him up any time after April 14 and he wouldn’t be a free agent until after the 2028 season.  If you are suggesting they’ll defer him to try to avoid him becoming a Super 2 after the 2024 season, (1) I disagree they’ll do that and (2) the cutoff date for Super 2 changes every year, isn’t known in advance,and could be 2-3 weeks before June 1 or 1-2 weeks later.  In 2017, Josh Hader debuted on June 10 and he still qualified as a Super 2 after the 2019 season.  
    • Yeah, so I’ve held off telling the story about my interaction w/ Jones, but he’s no longer an Oriole, so.... I posted years ago about a hitting clinic he held at SDSU w/ Harold Reynolds. It was a fun time for me and my daughters taking a road trip from Los Angeles.  After the clinic was over we, of course, went to see about getting something signed or a picture. We waited patiently as he signed for a number of people and then I approached him to get a picture of him and my girls. He started to lineup to do so and then balked at the idea, saying it would take too much time, at which the expressions of my kids faces visibly dropped. Disappointing to say the least, but I explained it away with some such fatherly bs.  I never mentioned it in the thread about our trip because I knew there would likely be disbelief or outright anger for me calling out an Oriole player, especially Jones. After all these years, it wasn't a huge deal, but yes, I lost respect for him. As far as I know, Palmer has always been great with not only fans, but going out of his way to be available for them. There’s also no one else I’d rather listen to call a game than Jim Palmer. His stories are part of that.
    • Well Machado should’ve been dealt the offseason before but somehow we were still going for it with a team that actually won 47 games. The only thing bad I could say about what DD did in the Machado trade, is that he should’ve gotten more A ball players versus trying to get players that were closer to being ready. However, The Dodgers had just spent $50+ million on Diaz, Pop was 20, and Kremer was leading all of milb in SO. 
    • Unless the CBA changes there is zero incentive to call up AR before June 1. It’s not like another 60 days of “bad” PR is going to hurt this franchise any more. 
    • Oh, absolutely.   The O’s were leading the division by six games when this news broke.   It stung pretty badly to lose Manny in that situation.   As it turns out, the team played well without him for the rest of the regular season.   But we’ll always wonder if he could have made a difference in that KC series, if he’d managed to rehab and return to the field.     Some posters faulted him for not acceding to the team’s wishes.   Not me though.  
    • Win 3 Cy Youngs, 3 World Series and a WS game in 3 decades and you can be as arrogant as you want.   Palmer rules.
