Feels like Mookie could be Rickey if Mookie wanted to be Rickey (and could secure the Dodgers permission).
Would be nice to see Buehler have to try hard all season some season, but I don't think circumstance is likely to give that anytime soon.
Rays offense was a lot better v. LHP this year, so will be interesting to see if Urias doing the Corbin thing this year can really take a stardom step tomorrow against the fully rested Anderson/Fairbanks/Castillo ace.
For all that we're all in on the high spin 4S thing, I do notice Dodgers Treinen/Graterol/May all worm burners in key roles.
I don't think I'm being extreme about this.
Yaz didn't show much of anything and it would have been poor use of a 40 man roster spot to call him up.
If you call up a Yaz where do you draw the line in who "deserves" a shot?
MASN and the Orioles do not have a right to appeal this decision to the Court of Appeals, NY's highest court. They have to ask the Court of Appeals to grant an appeal. It's hard to see any reason why the Court of Appeals would choose to get involved at this point.
Severino has lapses in concentration and can get lazy behind the plate, but he's not a very bad defensive catcher. He was worth .4 WAR defensively and threw out 31% of base stealers when the leg avg was 26%.
Now do I think Severino is not replaceable, no. But he's a decent stop gap until Rutschamn is aready and should be that expensive even in arbitration.
