IMO, they are moving on at the right time.  They got a lot out of him.

I think MLBTR is right, Didi could return back with a good off-season to get healthy and still be one of the better SS in the game.

1 year deal to prove that, might be best for him.

Schoop not even in the top 50, which goes all the way down to an FA projected to make $3 mm this year.    It would surprise me a bit if he didn’t get a contract exceeding that.

I am still finding the deal he made to sell off a portion of his future earnings to be very interesting.

Looks like the investors may have a losing proposition on their hands.   As I recall, $49 mm in career earnings is the break even point.

I recall some thinking Schoop while a nice guy, just didnt have it to play at the MLB level.

Clearly, they were wrong, he just didnt have it for a super long career.

He’s still playing, and I think he’s got a few more years in him.    But making $49 mm now looks remote.  He’s made about $21 mm to date.

yes he does, but his skills are declining and he wasnt the most skilled player on the roster.

You never know about career paths.   Schoop wasn’t awful last year by any stretch — 1.6 rWAR, 1.3 fWAR.    Fangraphs seems to think someone will want him and pay in the 1/$7 mm or 2/$14 mm range.   We’ll see about that, but I expect he’ll be on a major league roster somewhere.    His big problem this year was that Luis Arraez came up and hit .334/.399/.439, so Schoop understandably started losing playing time.

True, not awful, but a step down from his 2017 season, and throw in 2016 too.

Has he peaked and this is new baseline norm?

Maybe / Maybe not, time will tell.

I would take him on a 1 year deal, but long term and price range, would be a concern.

    • Sorting of wishing the Orioles could play the Pirates 18 times a season right now instead of the Yankees, Rays, etc. 
    • One of my favorites from them/him. I'm still pretty torn up by all this. Him and Anthony Bourdain both, messed me up they were so f-ing stupid...  
    • Looks like an Israeli company has developed a test, hope it can be mass produced quickly.
    • Echoed.  I heard beat reporter Susan Slusser on the FG team preview podcast call Kemp the favorite.  Their lineup except Olson is exclusively RHH, so Kemp gets the edge on Barreto/Mateo there.  Plus they have Neuse hopelessly blocked by Chapman so they had him goofing with 2B Moustakas style last September.  And they took a Rule V infielder. Hanser Alberto might be Oakland's fourth string 2B. I am almost positive Oakland will keep whichever of Barreto/Mateo they like best to succeed Semien, who despite being beloved has likely played his way out of their price range. MLBTR has summarized: https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2020/02/athletics-second-base-franklin-barreto-jorge-mateo-2020.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+MlbTradeRumors+(MLB+Trade+Rumors) The Tigers have Schoop, so if I'm figuring correctly we should have a shot at first claim if we want.  Perhaps Luke is thinking of just the right lowball token guy right now.
    • I put up a better version I have on my harddrive  
    • 3 years before he put it on vinyl! 1973. This is really the version that runs thru my head... besides the commercial version you've heard 10,000 times. Skip this^^^^^ Watch this one! vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
    • That’s a worthwhile take, and not something to entirely rule out.  They pitch with different levels of maturity today so perhaps you’re more right than you think, but I value the speed changing ease that Hall can utilize and their stuff is otherwise close to even.  Ranking them closely is intelligent and there’s data to support you too.  Still, it’s hard to not have Hall higher due to ceiling height potential alone....it could end up higher and he’s further from his peak than Baumann is; two significant factors.   I don’t see him thriving at Norfolk initially either and he may not be in the class of their rotation at the season’s start.  8 to 13 starts into the year however it might be a case of him going up and never looking back.   Strong supporters of him like you and I probably expect this on some level.  That’s a mean 1-2 punch and I’m happy to have both in our colors.  I want lots of innings and lots of learning if there’s adversity.  Ornery Baumann could be devastating and having him in a tier by himself is logical.
