Why didn’t the Os claim Casey Sadler from the Rays? THAT is a guy we should have grabbed.

Perhaps the cost was Elio Prado or Noelberth Romero????  😇

Well, for starters, we don't have a thread on him.  But I agree.  Casey Sadler could have been a future centerpiece for us.

But why? We have Bostick, Vincj, etc etc. they are no Messiahs, but they aren’t worse than Rondon and are already here.

Look at their stats. They are worse.

Does this mean Villar is getting traded?

You gotta think this is depth move in case this happens. If Villar is traded, that would leave Martin as the only legitimate defensive SS on the roster. Albert and Peterson would be well below average defensive SSs.

How is Rondon significantly (or any) better than Reinheimer, Vincej, or Vielma?

I haven't seen him play shortstop, but other than Reinheimer, the other two are not legitimate MLB shortstops (Vincej is a lot like Alberto without the arm and Vielma can't hit at all) and Reinheimer is replacement level at best defensively. 

AAA slashes:
Rondon (2018): .250/.290/.497/.787
Reinheimer (2019): .249/.327/.348/.675 hitting against the major league superballs

Ok then, here are the reasons:

1. It's good to collect inventory of guys who can play MIF positions, especially shortstop. Especially when you don't have a real ML starting SS in AA or above.

2. When Villar and/or Alberto get traded, he fills in a spot. 

3. If Jace gets DFA'd because he's 29 and not good, Rondon fills in a spot. 

4. The MIF guys at Bowie, Bannon and McCoy, are probably guys you want to leave where they are for development reasons. Thus it makes it more difficult to promote Vincej or Bostick from Norfolk because who would fill in for them? Jace is out of options so you can't send him back.

5. Rondon is slightly more talented than the current Norfolk MIFs.

6. It costs almost nothing.

7. There's plenty of 40-man and 25-man space right now.

I mean, these are the reasons. If they're not sufficient for you in particular, then I can't help you. 

Meh. You still misunderstood me. I don’t care one way or the other, but he offers nothing we don’t already have, and he takes a 25-man spot without options( if he had options remaining I’d be less concerned)

It is clear they think he is better then the other guys and they are the ones making the decision.  I like Miller Light better then Bud Light but if my buddy buying likes Bud Light over Miller light I am not gonna say no if he offers me one.

Why does it matter if he has options to you? If the Orioles want to send him to the minors, they just DFA him. If he clears waivers, they send him down. If not he goes to another team. He has not been that great a player so far and probably will never be. If they lose him to another team, big deal! Do you really think the Orioles would be so afraid to lose him that they would not DFA him if they need his roster spot?

You're not gonna find a DFA type that offers something we don't already have.  

And since he's not great, not having options is irrelevant.  We can option him, good chance he doesn't get picked up and we can send him to Bowie or Norfolk.  If he does get claimed by someone else it's not a big loss.

I feel like I addressed this in my post, but alright. No worries, agree to disagree.

    • Not saying it isn't, but AAA will be the first year we assume he will be using the MLB ball if AAA in 2020 will still be using the same balls. I'm glad Wells continues to beat expectations at every level but being a soft tosser still concerns me and probably always will. Wonder how many innings they give him with the big league club next year in spring training before they option him out to minor league camp?
    • I don't think Preston is giving enough of an adjustment because of weather conditions.  MVP candidate Russell Wilson played worse, against a statistically worse pass defense.
    • I agree. But it's been interesting to me to meet Y fans who found him so annoying that they're glad to be rid of him. They usually cite the fact that he made so many pitching changes and slowed the game down so much it became boring to them.
    • Something similar happened to me and another O's fan visiting from Vegas at the first 2012 playoff game at Yankee Stadium (the one in which Flaherty and Manny hit homers, Adam misplayed Jeter's fly into a RBI-triple, and Ibanez hit the game-tying and -winning homers in the 9th and 12th innings off of Jim Johnson and Matusz after Miguel Gonzalez had pitched his typically Yankee-killer gem). Beer wasn't thrown on us (we were in the bleachers and those fans wd never waste their Bud Light mead)--just the empty blue plastic bottles. We needed a two-officer escort from the water fountain all the way down the ramps. They also mocked my race. The other fan was a young white man and had flown in to bet on the game, and lost. There was a nice Canadian woman behind us who said she was rooting for the Y's, but hated Yankee fans.... I have some some cool photos. Nonetheless, I loved that season and series.
    • This is what he had to say: Lamar Jackson struggled passing most of the game and it appears that the league has figured out how to take away some of his easy throws. He threw behind and low to a lot of receivers. As usual, he remains the team’s top offensive weapon with his legs. Jackson isn’t a complete quarterback yet, but he can make big plays from anywhere on the field. Grade: C+ ————————————————————————- Honestly he’s pretty accurate.
