Well, thanks. Wish I could have replied sooner, was out all day.
Good points on Alberto, Ruiz, Severino. And you're right, it's one of those things and we can't be expected to get all the moves right. No one bats 1.000.
I don't believe he SHOULD have had a chance, I just question the move for DSJR. I don't think DSJR was a significantly better upgrade. For me, a 4th outfielder should be able to field really well and be decent (not amazing with the bat). Yaz, by all accounts, has a good glove. DSJR does not. If the argument is that DSJR is younger, well that's fine.
These are good points worth considering, too. Even if we brought Yaz up, I don't think he performs here like he did in SF so it's a moot point despite this being a fun, spirited debate.
Urias might have had the star turn with a dozen or more K's in a full allotment, but the pull before Yandy on Batter #19 and 4 2/3 innings TTOP orthodoxy in its pure form. But the bullpen is a chink in the armor. Brandon Lowe repping for the Terps!
I'm not proclaiming him guilty of anything.
My first post I said " If true boy was that a stupid thing to do."
My second post I said " his alleged activity".
Obviously evidence is scant at the moment and this might be something more in the lines of a clerical mistake or nothing at all.
Lot of great points here. I agree and I'll wait for all the facts to come out. My guess the Orioles get a fine and this was used to leverage the Astros situation for a sensational news story when things are quiet outside of the World Series that few actually care about.
Exactly. COVID restrictions really stopped the travel back and forth so it probably didn't make since to have Holt with the team and the minor leaguers. Either way, fraud is a really strong word to use and reeks of click bait by the NY Post.
