Claimed: Pitcher Carson Fulmer

Recommended Posts

But I wasn’t impressed in my first look at Fulmer.    Yanked several pitches and really gave Sisco a workout.    Even when he threw strikes I didn’t really think he knew where the ball was going.

Ugly end to a pleasant  game to watch. Maybe it is me, but I had visions (even the glasses) of watching Kevin Greg all over again.😀  I thought OH NO, not another .... Did the Orioles claim a clone of that nightmare from times back? Be interesting to see how this plays out. CM saved it from being a lot worse!!! Getting him into the useful category should test our coaches!!!

Its a process.   O's pitching coaches are just starting with him.

Exactly. He obviously has some things to work out, and that's not the easiest thing to do during the season. Hopefully we will see some improvement when he gets to work through some things with coaches in the offseason, but I wouldn't expect too much over a handful of appearances in the last couple of weeks in the season.

We hardly knew ye. 

Claimed back by the Pirates.

In a sense I kind of like it. Gone are the days where we are staking our hopes to every high draft pick waiver claim and holding onto them for years and years until we realize, yup, he's not good after all! I would have liked to keep Fulmer in the fold somehow, but we have to add a crapton of pretty decent prospects to the 40-man and if a guy doesn't slip through waivers, so be it.

I guess the O's were not that impressed either.

Honestly the second time I saw him, I was much more impressed.   Oh well.

We keep everybody until somebody better comes along, and eventually somebody better doesn’t come along and we keep what we have. We’re not there yet, but soon.

I liked his competitiveness, but the delivery was all over the place. Best of luck to him. Maybe we see him again.

I'm kind of disappointed. I was kind of curious to see if the O's could have turned him around. But, we have a lot of guys that need to be added. I think we will start to lose guys that don't suck.

Well. Nevermind then.

    • I’ve always liked Rosario, but I don’t see a fit here. I’d look for White Sox to get him to replace the black hole in their lineup that is Nomar Mazara. 
    • I don’t disagree with that at all, the reason I don’t understand this decision is because as has been mentioned you could get a better catcher than Severino for less money, but mainly, on defense, which is really what we need from catcher at the moment, neither of our catchers is worthwhile. Neither of them calls a good game neither of them frames very well, neither has what it needs to help the pitching. On offense, they each have major issues. I Personally would’ve gotten rid of Sisco long time ago, but I understand why he’s still here. But then why keep Severino? It doesn’t seem to make sense. The main thing is to help the pitching and neither of them does that.
    • Well, I did not expect you to agree with me.  But the facts are what the facts are.
    • If his salary is in the 7 figure range, he isn’t an Os target.
    • Mullins isn’t good.  Please stop talking about him like playing him a lot is a good idea. I don’t care what Hyde said publicly.  Every manager says stuff like that.  It’s meaningless talk.
    • Sure but that doesn’t mean you don’t play him everyday to make sure the light bulb doesn’t turn on.  He would hardly be the first player to take some time to get going and given how they have handled him and given him inconsistent at bats, it’s not surprising he has struggled. They don’t care about winning anyway, so play the young guy and see if he start to hit like he did for his pro career.
    • “Eddie Rosario is a good enough player to have his flaws scrutinized. He doesn’t reach base enough and he doesn’t add much outside of his pop. But that power has been consistent, and it makes him an above-average performer. Some within the game even believe that his production isn’t that far off from his projected salary. However, the Twins have Alex Kirilloff waiting in the wings. He’ll be paid near the league minimum. Meanwhile, Rosario will cost nearly $10 million. That’s a decent chunk of change for a team that could throw that money toward their pitching needs. Barring a surprise trade, Rosario is a good bet to enter the free agent pool.”
