Well I’ll be a monkeys uncle. Write down this day; I was wrong once.

You're wrong.  This isn't the day you were wrong.   You were wrong the other day when you said what happened today wouldn't happen...... ;)

Dumped Villar for nothing.  Alrighty.  I hope they aren't expecting to see me at Camden Yards this year.  

Seems rational.

Roch:  “I’ll pass along comments from executive vice president/general manager Mike Elias later tonight.”

Waiting with bated breath.

Waiting with bated breath.   

The Orioles 2019 draft was positionally top heavy. Acquiring a college starter that signed for a premium at his draft position is at least a flyer.

I guess I don’t understand why we would want Villar next year. I couldn’t care less about losing Villar or what we get for him. Didn’t expect anything. Fine with salary dump no reason to spend 10 mill on him.

This also fits the type Fangraphs pegged as the Marlins after the Gallen-Chisholm challenge trade.

An interesting tidbit from that story - I am guessing Lucas is okay at Trackman.

I like that the Marlins appreciate flash, and sexy tools, and that they’re chasing them in trades, in the draft, and among international free-agents. A rival team source told me this week that Miami seemed much more willing to part with Trackman-friendly pitching than it was with their younger prospects in rookie ball.

    • That's.... that's exactly what I'm saying. How are you not hearing yourself? He lost the job because he couldn't hit - like AT ALL - and the mounting pressure from all that not hitting was getting to be a strain on him and the organization. So they sent him down to work on that. Meanwhile, Elias doesn't want to - like you said yourself - go to McKenna or Hays. So they just throw whoever out there. If they weren't worried about Mullins' development they would have just kept him, but you can't keep a guy in the bigs with a broken swing. Wilkerson isn't any better defensively out there, that's obvious to see. But he could hit at least a LITTLE. And let's not forget Santander and Stewart got CF looks as well. 
    • I don't love LeBlanc, but at least it will probably prevent a Cashner reunion. 
    • Notice they haven't punished the Red Sox yet? I'm betting MLB and the Red Sox got together and canned Cora so they could try and do the slow fade on the Red Sox getting caught cheating again.
    • Certainly not by me, but I think it will probably be old news to the casual fans in a few years. The only think they could have done to make it stick was have them vacate the title, as impractical as that may have been. 
    • Fans were not super keen on Christian Walker, but he's a starter in Arizona now. I think Cedric Mullins has shown enough potential (a year removed from .289/.346/.472 in AAA and 21 SB at 23yo) to get the benefit of the doubt that he had a down year instead of being branded as hopeless. 
    • I think it was worse because he lost it to Wilkerson.  They decided that a utility infielder was a better choice for CF than Mullins.  They decision to not promote McKenna or Hays had more to do with their development than it did what was happening at the ML level. I'm not convinced they sent Mullins down to facilitate his development.  I think they looked at him, looked at Wilkerson, and wanted Wilkerson in CF.  I think they have written Mullins off as a prospect.
    • If he can throw and he isn't a waiver guy, maybe a team like Pittsburgh could use him. If he can't and is, maybe we can give his slot to Mason Williams. Slow day here.
