O's claim RHP Ryan Eades from Twins

Recommended Posts

For what it is worth and I know it is not a big deal, I overheard a conversation at spring training that lead me to believe Yacabonis was one of Mancini's good friends on the team.

Well, if he’s won Half the battle, I guess it’s the other half that is the important part, because he sure doesn’t have anything to call home about after a trip to the mound.

I dunno, maybe he could use some comforting words from his mother.  “Don’t worry Ryan, we think you’re great no matter what!”

Eades gave up 59 hits in 50.2 innings - at Rochester.  It's hard to blame most of that on bad luck when he also gave up more hits than innings in AA last year (66 in 61 innings).  I mean... who cares if he has a 3.94 SO/W ratio if he's got a 1.48 WHIP that maybe should be only 1.38 if he hadn't had bad luck.  Just not seeing the point of this move, but hopefully it works out well.

I hear ya, but you won't really find the point of this move in any stats. It's all about options. Yac ain't got 'em. Eades do. Thus, the Orioles replace a non-controllable swingman with a controllable one for the next couple years. 

Eades doesn't have much upside, but he's a guy you can yo-yo to death to avoid starting the clock on someone else. It's just an inventory move.

I just don't see the point.  Who cares about the options when a guy just can't play?  We're a last place team; who's gonna want our rejects?

They still need to field a team for the next two seasons that they will spend no free agent or arbitration money on.

Weams, guess what?  You can ALWAYS find guys who can't play.

Options only matter when you care who is on the team.  If the Orioles lose Yacobonis and replace him with the next Wojciechowski there's no impact to anything at all. There are hundreds of pitchers floating around who could give you a 5.83 ERA in the majors.  It doesn't matter which ones we have.  Options are only a thing for above-replacement talent.

Besides, at that rate, the cost per letter there was going to be too much.  Yacobonis to Wojciechowski to God knows what.  We'd need elite level seamstress talent.

AAA career numbers

6-3  4.01  74 IP   92k

Probably promoted to the O's in September  as an opener.

I stated that Eades may be a good opener the first page of this thread but no one pick up on it.

Here are some stats when he starts games over the last three years.

2019   AAA   2 GS,   5 IP,   4 H, 3.60 ERA,   .211 avg,  0.80 WHIP

2018 AAA   3 GS,    10.1 IP,  6H,  0.00 ERA,  .162 avg,  0.77 WHIP

2018 AA   3 GS,    9.2 IP,    8 H,   0.93 ERA,    .222 avg,   1.03 WHIP

2017 AAA 1 GS,    5 IP,   5 H,   1.80 ERA,    .143 avg,   1.20 WHIP

2017  AA  8 GS,    36.2 IP,   25 H,  1.96 ERA,   .197 avg,   0.93 WHIP

Maybe the try him as an opener.

You think 17 games (67 innings) over three years is enough data to mean anything?

What am I saying, of course you do.

I have no issue with using a starter but I wouldn't adjust my team strategy because of his numbers.

Wildcard did say "opener," not "starter."

Correct, was a mistake on my part, I was referring to an opener.

That's ok, you understandably have a phobia about can openers.

    • There was no binding deal made in March. If there was the players would be suing the league.  You have chosen to ignore facts and logic to fit your preconceived notions.  I am not sure what you have to gain by putting forth an illogical untruthful narrative.
    • Ok, I really am not going to read any more until tomorrow but I couldn't let this stand. I know I am just a small country lawyer and you are a noted labor law expert, but please advise me as to the total lack of logic into my argument. That is great news about teams not having to honor the CBA, I assume that goes for the players too. I guess all the players are free agents now, I hope we sign Mike Trout! Glad that Davis contract albatross is no longer hanging around the Orioles necks! The bottom line is that the owners made a lousy deal in March. It happens. The players have made many missteps in previous CBA negotiations, from not foreseeing the collapse in the free market for mid-range players to not trying to stake a claim early on into MLBAM and other ancillary rights. My belief is that the owners were unrealistically optimistic about the thought of things returning to normal faster than the experts said. Their thought process was likely something along the lines of, "We will be playing by June 1st, and we sell fewer tickets in April and May so getting the players on a one-third discount will be a great deal, maybe we can even increase the number of games played in the summer and make more money off split gate double headers!". They also likely were overly focused on shortening the draft to achieve their long-term goal of cutting minor league teams and saving a few million dollars on the margin.  Unfortunately, actions have consequences, MLB made a bad deal and have to live with the consequences. Maybe they should fire some of the yes-men who assured them that the season will start with fans in mid-May. Maybe they should fire the lawyers that they paid $800+ an hour to negotiate the contract with MLBPA for failing to properly negotiate for the possibility of playing without fans to better insulate themselves from potential losses.  I see both sides, but both sides don't need to compromise. The time for compromise was in March, when the deal was made. A compromise was reached, amateur players got screwed, MLB players got a short term loan (or payment if the season was canceled) to tide themselves over, MLB got cost certainty, and likely (mistakenly) believed that they had pulled one over on the players by cutting their salaries while still being able to hold all the major events of the season and play in front of fans. Now MLB has to honor the deal by paying the players on a pro-rated basis, or open their books and prove to the players that they would lose more money doing that than they would canceling the season. The MLBPA doesn't owe x amount of profitability to MLB, in much the same way that the league doesn't share profits with them. It is a business arrangement entered into by professionals with highly paid lawyers who are among the best in their field. Unfortunately for MLB, it looks like this deal is going to bite them in the behind. It isn't up to the players to bail them out. Hope to hear more constructive comments tomorrow, I am off to enjoy my birthday!  
    • Debate strategy 101: Start by telling your opponent they're totally illogical, and close by telling your opponent their argument is total nonsense.  Only when you've accepted this can we craft a compromise that benefits everyone.
    • I guess the Sabres and Devils have quit screaming.  It appears that a format for the Stanley Cup playoffs has been determined. Twelve teams from each conference make the playoffs.  The teams that finished fifth through twelfth in the regular-season standings will pair off in five-game series, with No. 5 playing No. 12, No. 6 playing No. 11, and so on for the right to advance to the next round.  The teams that finished first through fourth will automatically advance to the next round, but will not automatically be seeded in  the order of the final regular-season standings.  While the fifth through twelfth teams are playing their five-game series, the first four teams will play a round-robin series against each other to determine who will be seeded first, second, third, and fourth for the second round. It's not clear how the seeding would work if the round-robin series results in two teams with 2-1 records and two teams with 1-2, or three teams with 2-1 records and one with 0-3. And they still haven't worked out the details of where and when the games can be played. But at least they don't seem to be squabbling about money, as the baseball players are doing.
    • How about we pick to not skip any seasons?  That would be my preference.
    • That's freakin' great Rick! 😛  
    • So we cant agree who is the poster child for punk of the MLB, too many to chose from. Can we agree that Brooks goes it at number 1 for the best guy to have play the game on and off the field? I know Roy Firestone would agree.
