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 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.
    • 2021 midseason moves will probably be crazy.   The whiffing in the NYP suggests a conservative initial assignment, but also one where hopefully he's Barry Bonds grown man to the children he'll be playing with.  A good Stowers '21 I think pushes through three levels; two is making par, maybe.
    • From the underrated guitarist department...  
    • I saw Stowers multiple games with Aberdeen in Brooklyn in 2019.  He just glides across the OF in large strides (which makes it all the more impressive that Janvrin pushed Stowers to RF - which gave the Aberdeen pitchers two OFers who could track down everything that possibly could be tracked down).  As I posted at the time, we sat with Mark Dashbach's father and had to cheer for our three Stanford guys with him.   I hope what the Os saw with Stower's swing is fixable because there's a big hit risk here for a second rounder IMO.  This pick has the downside of the OF equivalent of a Cadyn Grenier.  It would be an enormous boost to our OFers at the bottom of the system if Stowers turns into the player the Os envisioned when drafted.
    • This is really good. Sideys from something I was listening. I saw Edgar, right near here in Chambersburg. Very excellent! Don't know what event that was, Ringo introducing.
