Jon Meoli: Has 6 non rostered O's on the OD roster

Recommended Posts

With two weeks to go:

Holiday, Valiaka, Wilkerson, Williams, LeBlanc and Milone.

I don't see that happening.  Probably 2 or 3 IMO.

Here is what I think: (Bold are the ones different from Meoli)

Catchers:  (3) Severino, Sisco, Wynns

Infielders: (7) Davis, Alberto, Iglesias, Ruiz, Nunez, Martin,  IF/OF Velazquez

Outfielder:  (4) Hays, Stewart,  Santander, Smith (I don't know if Santander and/or Smith tested positive or were just exposed and in 14 day quarantine. I will change this if they tested positive.)

Starters: (5) Means, Cobb,  (non roster LeBlanc and Milone) , Wojo

Relievers (11) Harvey, Givens, Bleier, Castro, Armstrong, Carroll, Scott, Velazquez,   Fry, Sulser,  Stewart

I think being on the 40  man roster will mean a lot in making the OD roster.     A week later things could change.

Smith and Santander are sick and quarantining at the hotel.

Quarantined I understand.  Sick or have they just been exposed to someone that tested positive for Covid, I have not heard.   What is your source?

Teammate. They have symptoms, but didn't test positive. It's a precaution.

So you heard from a teammate of theirs that they tested negative but have symptoms? 

So if the symptoms go away and they test negative again do they get to start the season on the 30 man roster?

Terrible job by the Os to not put the young guys on the roster and let them play out this shortened season.

It's all about development.

Mountcastle had better be up 10 days from Opening Day and play at least 45 games.

It's just ridiculous he's gaming the service time of a fringe top 100 player.  I can't recall a similar circumstance.

Who do you want to see?   Mountcastle could be passed his service time in 7 days after OD.  If Akin is pitching well at Bowie the could be called up in two weeks after OD.   

We are going to see Harvey, Stewart and Hays from the beginning for the season if they stay healthy.

The same Hays who is only a rookie because they gamed his eligibility.

He had better put up 3.5+ WAR in his age 29 season for this to have been worth it.

I really don’t care who is on the roster for the start of the season if they think saving a few games will affect the new cba service time.  However if 15 games or so in the younger guys are not getting time that is different. 30-50 at bats isn’t going to make much difference in a young guys development for the next few years.

Akin, Lowther, Wells, Kremer, etc..all should be up.

The idea that guys like Milone, LeBlanc and Wojo are going to be in the rotation is a joke.  It was one thing for them to start a normal season in the rotation.  But at this point, I expected a lot of the young talent here and playing.  So, get them up now.

You also have Mountcastle and Diaz.  You just have to wait a few games and you get the extra year for all of them.

Whether or not it's necessary... is the downside of not being on the team for 10 days so bad that he has to be a really good player in his revised walk year for it to have been ta reasonable decision or "worth it?" What is the immediate cost you are trying to balance against here?

    • You're welcome! Thanks for stopping by.
    • I was going to ask what makes him toolsy besides the power but Hoosiers post suggests he has speed and can go get the ball.  Sounds like the arm is average at best.  Is there any chance he's a potential CF?
    • I went for more accomplised over shiny new thing, so Bannon/Zimmerman.  However, something about Stauffer intrigues me, age, size, K's, under the radar. His is the only name I was surprised to see in the poll so I kinda hope it's him.
    • What TV revenue? The TV networks pay what they pay for postseason games.   National coverage of regular season games does nothing but fill air time and gets very low ratings.   In a typical season a nationally televised NFL preseason game will get higher ratings than nearly any regular season MLB game.   Fox & TBS pays MLB for the All Star Game and the postseason, they would probably not care if they didn't broadcast any regular season games because no one watches them.   Most baseball fans watch their local team every day.   ESPN is the same except that they do need something to fill programming hours on their networks so they have a little more motivation to broadcast regular season games.   But for the most part, the national TV contracts exist for the postseason.   And MLB knows it so they will try to have as short a season possible because they know Fox & company will still ante up almost as much.   Cut the season in half and Fox will still pay 90% of what they pay now because all they really want is to broadcast the big games in October. Yes, the local TV revenue exists.   Except in a lot of cases (Balt/Wash, NYY, Bos, many others) it's a team owned network paying the team for the games, so it's just a paper transaction. A higher chunk of MLB revenue comes from actual attendance than any other major sport.   So it's the one sport where the owners have a strong motivation for a shorter season.  
    • I disagree that he's so important that a team would have to overpay for him to be dealt.  He's still pretty much the same guy the O's got on the cheap last year. Anyway, bad defense encourages the pitchers to strike batters out!
    • @Tony-OH Just another quick thank you for the time and effort of doing this.  Makes my lunchtime reading very enjoyable!
    • Because I the idea of a good, veteran defensive SS anchoring the infield while we--hopefully--feature a very young pitching staff next year getting their feet wet at the Major League level. I am not a fan of Velazquez and am skeptical about Martin. I guess you could sign someone like Hechavarria, but it's going to be hard to find a good defensive shortstop that is not completely useless at the plate for the cost of Iglesias (and we certainly aren't going to pay any more than that for someone for next year, nor should we).  With the young pitching, I want to give them as much as possible to succeed. To me, that means good defense up the middle and at least some offense. I don't want them always expecting to have to be nearly perfect to have a chance of getting their team a win. Having some wiggle room from time-to-time, in my estimation, is helpful. Of course, I don't have data to back that up, but that's my thought.
