 What I don’t want is Mark Trumbo Putting up the worst 47 home run season in history, because his defense was… That… Bad

Worst seasons of 45+ homers in history:

Starting at first base in Bradenton today.

Not third base as I initially put, I was misled by an error on the game thread.

On a lot of HS teams, whoever the best athlete is winds up at shortstop.

The Orioles drafted about 20 SS's last year.   Probably 5 of them actually wind up at that position.

All of these guys were listed as shortstops when drafted: Ron Gant, BJ Surhoff, Brian McRae, Brian Jordan, Gary Sheffield, Reggie Sanders, Marty Cordova, Chuck Knoblauch, Phil Nevin, Trevor Hoffman, Jorge Posada, Chipper Jones, Chase Utley, Michael Cuddyer, Hank Blalock, Adam Jones, Steve Pearce, Dustin Pedroia, Mark Reynolds, Pedro Alvarez, Anthony Rendon, Melvin Upton, Mychal Givens, Billy Hamilton, Brian Dozier, J.T. Realmuto, and Mookie Betts.  And it's almost too unbelievable to be imagine him playing shortstop well, but also Derek Jeter.

And Ryan Howard came in 2nd in MVP voting that year.

Shortstops in high school are always one of two things: the best athlete on the team or the coach's son.

Thank you very much for looking this up, I actually thought Trumbo was the worst, but somehow it doesn’t make me feel any better to know that there were other guys who were worse, Ha ha.

You know, Trumbo was a lousy fielder but I feel that 1.6 rWAR really understates his value to that team.   I just feel like he came through in key situations a lot that year.   I don’t think we would have made the playoffs without him.   So shoot me.

You say below average but I see above replacement. What am I missing?

2.0 WAR is considered an average major leaguer.

Those are two different things.    A replacement player is well below average for a major leaguer.

Maybe it's just me but it sure looks like the boy can hit.

Indeed, but it doesn't matter. Every error or misplay will be magnified to the extreme.

    • Seems just like the old SG to take a few quotes and then start bashing our FO and ownership for "dumb" things. IMO, the most telling quote in the link was also the one ME explained.  The revenue situation is uncertain.  ME is quoted as saying, "We can't estimate our revenue, our attendance ....  We can't estimate various things that we look at when we look at a player or roster budget."  In light of such uncertainty, it is quite a leap to say the FO is dumb for not pursuing a particular player - in this case, Stroman.  Most prudent, well-run businesses would operate in such as manner given the uncertainty. There are multiple ways to save $ with Chris Davis including his negotiating a settlement for possible retirement, a shortened season, etc.  All of these things are more important today than opening up Davis' roster spot.  Let's see what happens.  
    • Also, if we keep Cobb through the winter, we will need the spot for rule 5 protection.
    • It is a happy fact that I think the Orioles will be good enough next year that they won’t need him. They need good infield defense and he doesn’t provide that.
    • Some final defensive numbers: Rtot: +15 (6th in MLB) Rdrs: -3 (19th in MLB)  UZR: -5.4 (21st in MLB) Fangraphs defense: -4.4 (21st in MLB)  Fielding %: .980 (27th in MLB) Overall, a bit better than last year but below average unless you want to believe Rtot.

    • The first tiebreaker was division record, even though they played in different divisions.  I guess since all games were East vs East, Central vs Central, West vs West... Division record = league record. If that was tied then it was record in final 20 division (league) games. If that was tied then record in final 21 div games, the. 22, the n23, and so on. Kind of silly but those are the rules.
