I've never heard of David Williams but I've heard of Mason Williams who, I believe was drafted by the Yankees in the 1st round years back, was regarded as a top ten prospect, and actually had decent numbers in a SSS with the Reds at the ML level. If, two years ago, you asked 100 scouts who had more upside at the ML level, it is doubtful that a high percentage would have picked Yaz. Are you going to be demanding that Mason McCoy gets a chance? Should Richie Martin get another chance? He's still younger than Yaz was 2 years ago. Rylan Bannon. Which guys deserve 100-300-500 AB's before we include them in some minor deal?
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.
