If only Elias hadn't traded the 11th best player in baseball (Bundy) for next to nothing

Surely at least a part of this could be that he isn't playing in OPACY anymore right?

Maybe a little, but over the last 3-4 years the Big A isn't that far behind OPACY in home run rates.  A couple years there were actually more hit there than here, including so far this year.

Obviously the O's should have signed him to a 10 year contract.  Could have had a discount.

#1 trait you look for in a general manager is the ability to sign the players who'll be really good when it's not expected, and not sign the guys who'll fall off a cliff unexpectedly.  Even if that "skill" is about the same as a million monkeys with a computer eventually typing out Hamlet.

But the Big A, dont play in the AL East, and Bundy would not be the first pitcher to do better with a change of scenery and movement out of the AL East.

I'm not making a major point here, I'm just pointing out a coincidence/circumstance that happens to involve a player from a recent Orioles trade ........

Braves manager Brian Snitker tried to push Tommy Milone through 5 innings to qualify for the) W )in their 29-9 victory over the Marlins last night. Milone could only manage to go 3.33 frames, ceding 8 earned runs in the process.

I know.

That is what I posted in the first place, then I switched it to Mattingly and the Marlins, and then back to Snitker and the Braves again ....... I think I'll keep it this way, now.

Sometimes in life, I have observed that there are things that do not work out good, for whatever reason, no matter how much time one puts in to studying, analyzing it, etc.  I am writing off this Bundy thing as one of those times.  However, over the very long haul,

things come closer to evening up, so if we have not used our evening up issue, we are due for something good to happen.

The Eddie Rommel game just looks like inexplicable nonsense to a modern eye.  He relieved Lew Krausse in the 2nd inning after Krausse had allowed three runs.  He then pitched 17 innings, allowing 29 hits and 14 runs, picking up the win in relief.  He faced 87 batters, and threw an estimated 224 pitches.  In relief.

Our old friend Russ Ortiz of the '06 Orioles makes the list from his time in San Francisco.  The only pitcher from the past 40 years.

    • First off, thank you for admitting that Nunez is incredibly one dimensional and has almost no meaningful value. That's progress, I suppose. Anyway, the Orioles DFA'd Nunez with the intention to release him if no trade offer materialized from the other 29 MLB clubs, and, lo and behold, no trade offer materialized. Literally any other MLB FO could have added him to their roster for a bag of balls but they all decided that they would rather have the bag of balls than Renato Nunez at his projected $2-4 million dollar price tag. When you consider that he doesn't hit for average, doesn't get on base a lot, strikes out a lot, and can't run or field, it's really not too hard to see why. And that's without even getting into his underlying metrics, which as another poster already pointed out, are also pretty mediocre. His hard and weak contract rates in particular paint a rather gloomy long term outlook, and I am sure that Elias and the other 29 FOs were well aware of those things (and much, much more) too if Joe Schmoe fans like us can access that type of data. If all 30 MLB FOs and their analytics departments unanimously agree that a player costs more than he is worth, which is exactly what happened in Renato Nunez's case, I'm afraid I'll have to defer to their judgement over some rando with an axe to grind on a fansite's message board.  The money certainly was a major factor in Nunez's release, which is more understandable than usual in the dismal current economic landscape where legitimately good players like Brad Hand, Kolten Wong, and Charlie Morton had their reasonably priced options declined by currently contending teams, but roster construction, underlying metrics (as mentioned above), and his general mediocrity were also likely considerations.  I would personally much rather have the DH spot regularly available for Mancini, Mountcastle, and Stewart depending on the particular needs of the day anyway, but YMMV.
    • Here are the Rays:   Evan Longoria, 1:3 2006, 56.5 rWAR David Price, 1:1 2007, 39.4 rWAR James Shields, 16:6 2000, 31.0 rWAR Kevin Kiermaier, 31:16 2010, 27.3 rWAR B.J.

    • Honestly a pretty sad list after #5 ....Really most think that Wieters underachieved , Britton was called a TOR  that ended up in the pen because of durability, and Arrieta was god awful while he was here. Really, this list describes the drafting and developing failures of the Baltimore Orioles in the 21st century!
    • Waiver claim was how he got here so its not like we're talking about greatness. Maybe this means Mountcastle is moving to 1B or DH. 
    • Now the Yankees: Brett Gardner, 3:29 2005, 42.8 rWAR Austin Jackson, 8:29 2005, 21.9 rWAR Aaron Judge, 1:32 2013, 20.1 rWAR Ian Kennedy, 1:21 2006, 16.7 rWAR (FA comp) David Robertson, 17:28 2006, 15.8 rWAR Tyler Clippard, 9:27 2003, 15.5 rWAR Mark Melancon, 9:28 2006, 11.8 rWAR Dellin Betances, 8:28 2006, 11.2 rWAR Phil Hughes, 1:23 2004, 11.0 rWAR (FA comp) Joba Chamberlain, 1:41 2006, 7.6 rWAR Adam Warren, 4:28 2008, 6.7 rWAR David Phelps, 14:28 2007, 6.1 rWAR George Kontos, 5:28 2006, 3.8 rWAR Shane Greene, 15:24 2009, 3.5 rWAR Jordan Montgomery, 4:17 2014, 3.5 rWAR Jeff Karstens, 19:27 2003, 3.2 rWAR Jake Cave, 6:28 2011, 2.9 rWAR Mike Dunn, 33:28 2004, 2.8 rWAR John Brebbia, 30:28 2011, 2.5 r WAR Caleb Smith, 14:29 2013, 2.5 rWAR Zach McAllister, 3:28 2006, 2.5 rWAR Tommy Kahnle, 5:30 2010, 2.0 rWAR Phil Coke, 26:24 2002, 2.0 rWAR Ben Gamel, 10:29 2010, 1.1 rWAR James Pazos, 13:29 2012, 1.0 rWAR   Total: 25 players, 199.5 rWAR 2000-09: 17 players, 163.9 rWAR 2010-20 8 players, 35.6 rWAR   Not much there,  but then again, they're always drafting low.
    • The discrepancy is even worse when you think about how our draft picks work, with I think two exceptions, far better than theirs. It’s hard to blame one person, because the problem is over so long, but boy somebody is to blame
