Trying to Salvage a Split (vs. D-RAYS, 7/14)

Recommended Posts

Eshelman is fun to watch. His picture is next to the definition of junkballer in the dictionary, but he works fast, knows how to pitch and the command is mostly excellent

We gave up Cashner for 2 17 year old kids. I don't get it. should have gotten way more than that.

That's the hope, that they're REALLY good 17 year olds. Boston gave one of them $275,000. :noidea:

At least this game is moving fast.  

I always hope for long games. More time to watch baseball.

 

I get lots of baseball the next couple weeks. Going to day shift to learn a new machine.

Absolutely my favorite Pink song! I used to be able to play most of that.

Category A:  Some people are disappointed we couldn't get more.   Or that we didn't at least shop him around more to see if we could have gotten a bit more.  Even realizing there are more starting pitchers out there to be dealt with more value than Cashner, this seems like a pretty low haul.

Category B:  Faith that Elias & Sig wouldn't make a deal unless they got good value so they trust them.

Atomic:   We should be trading FOR guys like Cashner and maybe we can put together a team that can compete for the wild card next year.

I'm mostly in Category A, although I hold out hope that maybe Koby Perez saw something in these guys and they could turn out to be diamonds.    

I read most of the comments, and I think this is a good summary. While I wasn't counting, I think those in Category A are the clear majority.

Several posters were critical of Elias making trading Cashner so early, eliminating teams that will try but fail to acquire higher-value starters and might then lower their sights to Cashner later in the month.

    • I guess the O's hadn't used the cheating technology yet.        
    • Does Cashner require an MLB deal?  Colon would at least draw some press. 
    • I think that was a great win.  Indiana scored on every single trip down the floor to start the second half.  It had to be 13 times down and 13 scores.  Even when they missed, they got the offensive rebound and scored.  I don't think they even made any free throws in that stretch.....it was all made baskets. Sometimes, the other team just decides to try harder and stops missing shots and they did a great job.  This had loss written all over it, so I have to give credit to the Terps for winning a game that they should have lost....which is very rare in the Turge era. 
    • I did in fact create a spreadsheet.     As mentioned, many of the pitchers were on the BA list more than once.    So, I've sorted them into four buckets according to the highest ranking they attained. BA 1-25:  30 pitchers achieved this level, and that group averaged 12.5 rWAR.     Of the 31 pitchers I categorized as "reliable starters," from this bucket you have four of the No. 1 Studs (Kershaw, Price, Strasburg and Bumgarner), one of the Solid No. 2's (Teheran), two of the Mid-Rotation guys (Buchholz and Porcello) and eight of the Middle/Back of Rotation guys (Bailey, Anderson, Tillman, Cahill, M. Perez, Hellickson, Moore and Wheeler).    So, that's 15 of the 30 who became reliable starting pitchers by my definition.  Two of the Stud Relievers, Davis and Chapman, also came from this bucket. BA 26-50: 26 pitchers achieved this level and the group averaged 7.3 rWAR.    The group includes one No. 1 Stud (Cueto), four Solid No. 2's (Gonzalez, Carrasco, Zimmermann and Chacin), one Mid-Rotation guy (Kennedy) and three Mid/Back of Rotation guys (Jurrjens, Holland and Gibson).    Nine out of 26 became reliable starters.   Stud reliever Britton also came from this category. BA 51-75: 23 pitchers reached this level, averaging 6.1 rWAR.   They include one No. 1 Stud (Scherzer), one Solid No. 2 (Arrieta), one Mid-Rotation guy (Leake), and two Mid/Back of Rotation guys (Niese and Cashner).   5 of 23 became reliable starters. BA 76-100: 20 pitchers were in this bucket.    Only two became reliable starters: Samardzija in the Mid-Rotation category and Jonathan Niese in the Mid/Back of Rotation category. Hall and Rodriguez both fall into the second bucket for now, though it's possible they could move up in future years.
