Orioles trade Cashner to Red Sox

Meanwhile Cashner is 1-4 with an 8.01 ERA for the Red Sox. Whoops. 

Yeah, Cashner needed to be dealt and hopefully a few years from now one or both of these guys are contributing at the big league level.

BTW, the tweet seems misleading to me, saying, "The Dominican Summer League players from the Cashner trade are off to hot starts in the #Orioles organization,"  yet the article goes on to say that Prado has a .791 OPS and Romero has a .653 OPS with their respective DSL Orioles squads. Prado has impressed overall, but Romero has certainly not gotten off to a hot start. I can't help myself when I see something that appears to misrepresent the facts. Then again, I admit I could be missing something. Regardless, I hope to see these young men do well.

I didn't think Cashner had that much trade value to begin with so I'll trust Elias call that this was the right offer to accept.

I agree. My comments have nothing to do with the trade or the value we received.  I liked the trade. My comments were in regards to 'Orioles on MASN' tweeting what they did.

MASN isn't going to report anything with a critical slant on the Orioles. With DSL prospects we really have no idea about them anyways. Even if they were OPS-ing 1.000 it doesn't mean they will be MLB players in 5 years.

And sometimes you have guys like Schoop who have a .612 OPS at 17 years old in the DSL and go on to solid MLB careers. You can’t scout the stat line at that level.

The trade was worth the agitation on Sons of Sam Horn...

”the guys the Sox traded could burn down the orphanage Babe Ruth grew up in and this trade would still favor Baltimore.” 

“I am in a seat at Fenway with an obstructed view of the plate.  Thank God for that!”

Since Cashner's first BOS start (7/16), here's their entire rotation (ERA avg 6.48) .   Let's just say, he fits right in

Name     GS    W    L      IP       ERA       K9        BB9    WHIP
Price         4      0    3    17.0    10.59    12.71    3.71    2.18
Johnson   2    0    0        5.2      9.53      4.76    3.18    2.12
Cashner    6    1    4     30.1      8.01      6.23    5.04    1.91
Porcello    5    3    2     27.2      6.83      7.81    1.63    1.45
Sale           5    3    2     29.0     4.97    14.28     2.48     1.03
ERod         5    3    1     30.2     3.23      7.04     5.58    1.40

Looks like the Red Sox have fallen victim to the current state of baseball.  Chris Sale has a stellar K9, BB9 and WHIP and yet his ERA is almost five during that stretch.

You have to factor in that the DSL is a pitching-friendly league (average OPS .697) and Romero plays a defense-first position.   I don’t know that I’d call .653 a “hot start,” but it’s decent for a 17-year old SS in that league.

While ERod's stats are poor and yet his ERA is the lowest, the only one under 4.

4.10 now.  And still a 117 ERA+.  One can argue that his stats are not poor, but average and a little lucky.

Red Sox have a team 4.71 ERA which looks awful.  And it's a 102 ERA+!  That's crazy.

In 2014, that 4.71 team ERA would place the Red Sox in dead last in the AL team pitching by 0.14 points.

    • Just got through the DVR, and here's the lead.  My goodness - that mustache.  It goes right to the childhood McGregor Flanagan reptilian brain stem.  It's hard to see almost anything else. At one look, I'd say it's maybe an interesting call between him and Cobb for Game 5 next year, while whatever shenanigans/surgeries with Baumann, Hall, Rodriguez (and to a lesser extent Smith/Lowther) are waited out. I heard the Driveline last offseason report, but that hits me wrong for 4-pitch mix guys.  I think I think the devil's bargain of the Driveline-type proposition is you give feel and get dominance.  I see Savant had him at 30 FB, 10 SL, 10 CH, so will be curious to see if a 4th pitch comes out in Turn 2. Great story, and could certainly be a once through order or up/down guy for peak Rutschman teams but would hazard a guess that his IP count medium to long term is probably negatively correlated with team success.  Akin has splashed the pool to grow the group to 6 of "SP's I hope make 150+ starts/OpenerFollows for the 2021 Orioles", but I think Lopez, Smith and Lowther are more my 7/8/9 guys, never mind the Fulmers and Stewarts of the waiver wire. I do hope Zimmermann and all those others have somewhere to continue hot (warm, at least) games in October, whether in Bowie, or at some Super Arizona Fall League to be named later.  October/November Super Arizona Fall League could be like the Futures Game every day if anything could be concocted after the World Series.  Darn tootin I want to see Grayson Rodriguez trying to get Wander Franco out then.  
    • Not an impressive debut. Zimmermann's command was bad. I hope he settles down for his next appearance. Smith is a good prospect, but he only pitched 30 innings in AA last year and that was the highest he's gotten in the minors. Zimmermann, Akin, and Kremer all logged at least 150 innings between AA and AAA before this year.  Plus, 40 man roster considerations are always a factor. Zimmermann and Kremer both needed to be added this winter anyway to avoid getting picked in the Rule 5 draft. Smith does not till next winter.
    • Zimmerman's stuff, I was impressed enough. Command, quite another conversation. If he can command that stuff, I think he's okay. Good stuff, no command, see, Cabrera, D.
    • I thought Wojo looked like a hard rocker, lead singer of something like "Ancient Leviticus Ceremonies" or such. Also, today was my first look at Zimmerman, and I was thinking "why is an actor from a 70's cop show throwing out the first pitch?"
