I really want to keep Villar (Update: Traded to Marlins for LHS Easton Lucas)

No one is going to trade for Villar, but no one is going to pay him 7 million in arbitration either.

He’ll be here till November(or whenever the tender deadline is) and then go away.

Not going to happen

Woah.

Trevor Bauer to the REDS.

Nobody saw THAT coming

I wonder how much of that was the incident and how much of it was the result of a trade that was in the making already. I saw the incident and it seemed he did it out of frustration with his performance and not that Francona was taking him out. It was one hell of a throw. Considering it was a three team trade, I doubt much of it was impulsive.

  • Indians get: Yasiel Puig (CIN), Franmil Reyes (SDP) and Logan Allen (SDP)
  • Reds get: Trevor Bauer
  • Padres get: Taylor Trammel (CIN)

Cycles are fun.  We all enjoyed watching the game, even for the stupid home runs.

 

The man is fun to watch.

Among SS Villar ranks,

13th OPS

8th OBP

2nd SB

10th 2B

15th HR

13th RBI

13th Avg

6th Hits

5th Runs

It’s looking like he’s going to get that $8 million+ in arbitration, and it’s looking like he’ll be back with us next year. 1.019 OPS in August. Maybe the trade stuff was bothering him?  The dudes having a great year and is going to go 20/20 easily with 100 runs scored. Those are just baseline numbers, he could really put up some big totals.

Realistically there could be 18 shortstops and shortstopish players (like Machado and Villar) to hit 20 or more home runs this year. In 1983 there were two.

You've listed his rating among SSs, so I'm guessing you're arguing he should be our SS next year. I don't. He's played more 2B than SS for the Orioles. To me, he's just not a ML-quality SS defensively, and he's unlikely to become one in next season,  when he'll turn 29. Comparing his offensive statistics to those of guys who really can play SS is, in my opinion, misleading.

I'm OK with Villar at 2B, where my eyes tell me he's a little below average defensively, and would like to see him at 2B, and as a backup SS, next season. The SABR Defensive Index (through July 7) sees things differently. Villar ranks 18th out of the 20 AL second basemen who are rated. He's not rated at SS. (Richie Martin is ranked last among the 19 AL shortstops who are rated.)

The 2020 Orioles won't carry his expense.

Even if it's, say, a year at $2-3 million because that's more than anyone else offers him?

I think that is a close to impossible scenario.

I saw Strasburg gesture to his manager, and verbally tell him to stay in the dugout his last start. Then he argued with the C in the dugout for the C saying he was done, but Strasburg got labeled as a tough competitor.

    • They will have to adjust to a system that matches the QB. I’m sure Bill B is prepared to exploit Cam’s strength. He is not a traditional pocket passer anymore than Jackson is. They can preserve him somewhat by reducing or eliminating the planned run plays. I don’t think you can get rid of the plays where Cam will take off as that’s who he is.
    • I wouldn't give Lamar a long term contract.  Just Franchise him for a couple of years and then let him go.  I can't see him being effective as a running quarterback after 7 years.  How many running backs are effective after 7 years of starting?
    • If they're coordinating together, it's collusion. Having a meeting and creating some type of agreement qualifies as that - so the bolded sentence would definitely be that. They're also not free to do business however they please - they agreed to a collective bargaining agreement with the players. And they're also beholden to national anti-trust legislation like the Sherman Act that doesn't allow that sort of thing.
    • It would be wrong to call a meeting of the general managers and tell them they should not spend so much money on free agents: 1) Each GM should be able to figure that out on their own for each FA player. 2) Telling all the GMs that is grounds for the Union to file a grievance.
    • Well I don’t remember reading that in your original post, but yes that would be the very poster child of collusion. However, publicly saying, “it is stupid to sign a washed up veteran for too much money,” Is neither wrong, nor wrong. And it would be not wrong to publicly say, “the owners shouldn’t spend so much money on free agents” And it probably wouldn’t be wrong to say, “I’m going to have a meeting of all the general managers and tell them that they shouldn’t pay so much money to free agents because they aren’t worth it.”  After all, if they are free to do business as they wish, and they all agree that high dollar free agents are overvalued, that may be a fine line between “collusion“ and “good business practice.“ I’m not attempting to argue against what happened, just Wondering if it would still have been collusion if the owners had publicly explained that it was bad business?
    • It amazes me that people that were so angry when I suggested that you shouldn't feed your kids hot dogs and sodas are now so worried about ccvid. Heart Disease deaths in this country are 650k a year. Strokes kill 140k a year in the US and Diabetes 85k. And 620k from Diabetes.     The same thing that makes you at risk from dying from covid is the same thing that puts you at risk from dying from Heart Disease, Diabetes and stroke.  Yet I have yet to hear anyone else say they have given up processed food, meats, and exercising and eating more fruits and vegetables more since Covid started.    
    • I'm sure they're stretching out to the point that first start might be 5 or 75 pitches, then 6 or 90, then opened up.
