Fair amount of dudes going overseas this off-season. Can't blame em!

The ex-Orioles could field their own team there at this point!

He was a JAG, so no loss to the O's, IMO.  Good for him if he gets a nice payday.

"Just A Guy"?

The Yankees don't put their players names on the back of their jerseys.  We could just put JAG on the back of our team's uniforms this year.  Would save the seamstress' a lot of work with the way the roster will fluctuate.

Especially for Wojciechowski.

Back to Ynoa — he’s too minor a figure for an appreciation thread, but I kind of liked him.     I hope he finds steady work over in Japan and enjoys the experience.

He'd have those starts where his stuff looked pretty great, just not a lot of consistency. I think he'll do well in Japan.

Someone check to see if @wildcard is looking at flight information to Japan to go see his beloved pitch next year.

Sorry but  I think Ynoa had his chances and didn't measure up.

O's seem to be bleeding pitching depth so far this off season.  It would be good to see Elias add some guys that could compete for starting pitching roles.

One of my partners was the Judge Advocate General of the Army, and we have probably 8-10 lawyers in our DC office who previously were in the JAG corps, at least a couple of whom are still on reserve duty.   It’s great training for a lawyer.

These guys going overseas to play are making a lot of money. They’d have to settle for milb deals over here. 

I always liked Ynoa too, and he was always young enough that you could hope that he’d put it all together. He just couldn’t get consistent results.

    • 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.
