The ex-Orioles lineup vs the Orioles lineup

Recommended Posts

You could play this game with other team's cast-offs too, but somehow I think the all Ex- O's team would be the best...!

But Norris had one good season before he got released.

Not saying it was a good trade, but I am 49 years old and 2014 is the only time in my lifetime I have been able to see a live Orioles (or any) playoff game, so I don't have any regrets personally.  It was an amazing experience.  Not sure that happens without Norris's 2014.

They would have won it without Norris, but that's easy to say in retrospect.  They won the division by 12 games, but on July 31st they were only up a game and a half and webbrick was on his knees begging Duquette to sell it all before it crashed down.

Also, Hader was a 19th-round pick striking out less than a batter an inning at Delmarva.

Justin Turner was an Oriole?

Forgot about Christian Walker. Another lumbering first baseman who wasn’t as good as Chris Davis… Oh, wait…

Rotation could have included Eduardo Rodriguez, but I see he's out for the year with Covid related Myocarditis....  Yikes!!!!😱

It's unfortunate, but that guy just can't stay healthy.  I've lost track on how many health setbacks that guy's had.

The trade would grade out the same either way.  He was a free agent without attached draft pick compensation.

Still I would have liked them to have made at least a competitive offer. I think he would have stayed if the O's would have come close to Yankee money. The O's I think had the inside track. But that's water under the bridge and what not.

Oh sure.  I would have much rather have kept Miller than O'Day and said as much at the time.  The money they gave O'Day would have paid for a fair bit of Miller.

Wieters 2.0    Severino .6
Walker .6    Nunez .6
Schoop 6.1    Alberto 1.7
Turner 20.0    Ruiz .6
Machado 32.0    Valaika .6
Yaz .6        Mountcastle .6
Nick 2.0    Mullins .6
Villar 8.2    Santander .6
Cruz 12.0    Sisco .6
 

If we're just looking at lineup salary, there's 13x advantage there. Could be why we didn't keep all those guys.

For a year.  Had a .750 OPS and two homers for Norfolk, got busted for pot and waived.  Had been acquired as part of the deal ridding the team of Ramon Hernandez' contract.  So he'd been in the Reds system longer.  Then was a Met.  Three nondescript years there, then... something.

I'd rather they just not offer long term free agent deals to relievers.  I'm pretty sure there are three relievers with 8 K/9 under that log in the woodpile out back.

If only Duquette was a Pat Gillick type that held on to prospects. Never agreed with a model of trade prospects for a playoff run and then let said player you traded for go the next season.

It's actually player development.  None of the prospects traded by Duquette were highly regarded at the time except for Eduardo Rodriguez.  Jake Arrieta's star had faded.  Zach Davies was a borderline top 20 prospect for a terrible farm.  Josh Hader was a lottery pick. 

Angelos kept far too many people employed in the minor league system as coaches and development personnel because they were forner Orioles, and never got things up to speed from an analytics perspective.   Elias has done a complete gutting of the warehouse and development staff after his first season.  Matt Blood was a really exciting addition, as is Chris Holt gaining more influence.

It's hard to second guess a lot of these decisions to make these guys former O's, but I would have liked to see the difference if the O's had signed Nelson Cruz instead of Davis.   I remember at the time, the board was overwhelmingly in favor of keeping Hardy over Cruz.  Cruz was due to decline at any moment was the common opinion.

    • I’d be totally against this approach.   It’s the worst of all worlds: get his service clock running in 2021 but get very little major league experience out of it.    For me, I’d like him up by July or not at all.    
    • Yeah, theoretical value is what I meant. Thanks for clearing that up
    • I think there is potential here as a starter.  Very raw, 21 years old, but has There are a lot of prospects on this list where you wonder what they spend 2020 doing?  He's one of them.  98 mph FB, very high ceiling, high K rate potential; if he impresses, try to hide him and maybe let him open or go long relief at times Young, only 22, and threw a lot of effective innings in 2018-19.  Lots of early experience.  Could come in and compete for #5 spot or long relief.  Originally pegged as a AAAA, but he has the body to add more strength so stuff may jump this year. Late bloomer, but a 100 mph arm.  Has been given starter and long relief role in the minors.  Another one where you wonder how he spend 2020.  Could be a BP piece this year then developed as a starter if that still seems like a reasonable track to put him on. Young, lots of early success as well.  Kind of a messy start to his career as he was part of the Braves intl signing class that was then penalized, so Rosario signed with Royals.  Lots of upside, could compete for the #5 spot I really like this pick as potential IF competition.  He was a Cuban defector that signed for big money.  He has performed well in the minors his past two seasons.  He is still very young, 22, so he could come into his own depending on how he spend 2020.  Could come in and push for innings at 2B and 3B. He was talked about a lot last season too and no one picked him.  Its a year later, and he is 25.  It might be time to pick him and let him contend for the #5 spot.  He still has big stuff and he's another one that may have worked hard in 2020 to improve behind the scenes.  With his age, its kind of now or never time and there is an opportunity in Baltimore for the #5 starter spot. Described as a poor man's Kyle Hendricks, he's 25 has had a lot of innings and decent success in the upper minors.  He could also be brought in to compete for a #5 starter spot. Another potential pick I really like. He's 24, has put up really solid K numbers the past two seasons.  His 2018 was baller.  He tops at 94 mph, change up is best off speed pitch with a curve. Poor man's John Means? 27 Years old, essentially MLB ready and might be a cheap and equal replacement for Hanser Alberto. Could have 15-20 HR potential if he sticks.  Low risk, high reward type pick.  Crapped out in 80 ABs for the Pirates in 2018-19, but change of scenery and patience could be a place for him to become a piece.  If he did stick, could be a great trade chip down the road. Former 1st Round Pick. FB back up to 97 mph after TJ surgery.  Missed all of 2019.  Could be worth bringing him in and seeing if he still has 1st Round stuff. Pitched well in 2018 when healthy. 23 and only 143 professional innings. He has a solid pitching repertoire and he actually got a cup of coffee in 2019. He missed all of 2020 with TJ, so he could be one to draft and immediately put on the DL.  He threw a lot of innings in the MILB with solid K rates.  Could be worth trying to stash for later starter competition. He progressed in his second full year of A+ ball.  He played both seasons there much younger than the league average.  He has the 2nd round pedigree, and he is one who I wonder how he spend 2020.  With his age, 22, he could becoming into his skill set and potential.  He might be worth bringing in to run next to Ruiz and see if he can push him at 3B. I like this pick.  He has a solid arsenal of pitches. Had AA success in 2019.  Does a good job getting RHs out.  Could be competition for #5 starter or long relief role. Real Power potential, but he bottomed out in 2019.  He would have probably had a full 2nd year there in 2020 and could have made bigger strides in his game.  Apparently he is a very good middle infielder as well. Could be worth bringing him in to push Alberto, Valkaika, etc. 6'4 frame. Had a very impressive 2019.  There is a lot of swing and miss potential in his game.  Only 22, he could be one to bring in and see if he can compete for #5 or a long relief role.
    • Very few teams in the National League have a full time DH.
    • 2021 Orioles may no have one player that is a full time DH.  Most teams don't.
    • I dunno.  In holidays/daydream mode, I'm still navel gazing for a Severino non-tender as a leading indicator of Week 2 Adley. Clubs are a couple weeks away from having to show their non-tender cards as the revenue ripples start floating out.
