Means Akin Kremer and who?

Cobb will be moved in the off-season, which opens a spot.

Next spring will be exciting.

I don't think Cobb will be moved unless a lot of salary is absorbed by the team.  More than likely he is back next season. 

Means, Cobb, Akin, Kremer, Lopez/Zimmerman to start the season. Lowther and Baumann should be candidates to get called up during the first half of the season.

I don’t want to sound contentious but that’s too simple. If the team sucks up 7 million, they still save 8 million by trading Cobb, and I think they will do so because they’re not really any pressing need to keep him. The money is already spent, so anything they save will be a bonus, and that could go towards signing, for instance, a competent third baseman. As happens every year, there will be non-tenders galore, and I fully expect B-More to pick up a bunch more Jorge Lopezez along the way. I’ve made a long list of guys who will get the axe(and I’m adding Sulser and Valaika)But there will still be lots of guys, and there’s no need for Cobb.

Means era 5.02still not good but that whip of 1.088 is very impressive.  The numbers don’t reflect the improvement in stuff an actually I am more confident in him after this year because of the uptick in fastball.  He went from possible back end of the rotation guy to a two or three on a contending team.

I’m surprised at how high his FIP still is. Symptom of HR rate? WHIP, K/9, and K/BB are all superior to 2019 at the moment

    • Only has 57 post, give them a break.  Probably better posted in my post on the MLB guidance thread but I do find it interesting that the kid cant take responsibility for their own actions when they were clearly breaking mlb rules that have been in place for half a century or more.  
    • Sorry if I'm coming off a little preachy in my last post. This is just a really insane situation. Minor league salaries did get a bump a year ago, but 43 teams were also dissolved. Hell, a few years ago players were not only paid a horrible wage, they had to pay clubhouse fees. I'm a capitalist, but watching Chris Davis make over $21 million this year to spend the entire year at home in Texas, while we have AA players sleeping in their cars just to make ends meet? And if the fans don't care about that situation, nobody else will. Certainly not the two Goliaths battling over the new CBA and how two divy up over $10 billion in revenue per year. Damn.......I'm getting preachy again. Ok, I'll stop. 
    • Generally speaking, the kind of players that are having their service time manipulated originally signed for sizable bonuses, and many will be paid MLB salaries for multiple years. The players that are talking about sleeping in cars didn't get those big bonuses. If they're in AA they're making about $12k a year, only paid during the five month season. Apparently not paid at all during spring training or AFL.  Worth noting that I'm not at all a fan of the system allows teams to manipulate service clocks at all. If Rutschman is ready on August 1st, he should be called up on August 1st, not held out until some day in April the following season. But as a fan who wants to see the club win, and sustain that winning, manipulating a players' service clock has become an accepted reality in order to retain players you otherwise couldn't afford to keep.  To me, all of this boils down to the absurdity of the Uniform Minor League Player Contract and corresponding salary terms being negotiated solely by two parties that do not represent minor league players in any capacity. The owners don't want to pay any more than they absolutely have to, and the Major League Players Association doesn't want to lessen the potential salaries of the players they do represent. It leaves the average minor league player earning below the federal poverty line. I find it a particularly odd contrast to be building a state of the art 22.5 acre training facility in the Dominican Republic but we won't provide basic housing solutions for our players in the organization.  I'm not feeling at all conflicted about my anger. 
    • The varying combinations of Berra, Elston Howard and Johnny Blanchard used by the NYYs in the late 50s and early 60s were pretty good.
    • I saw him demolish a pitch on Thursday at Bowling Green but then not much after that and he dropped a fly ball to cost Aberdeen a game Saturday. I agree though that he is one to watch.
    • Didn’t think the ump was as bad as everyone else in the stadium did, but there’s no doubt he was inconsistent and squeezing early then opened the zone way up in the last few innings. Grayson seemed to be relying on the FB/CU combo for the most part. Both pitches looked nice, though he was barreled a few times and seemed to let too many hitters hang around fouling pitches off in the first couple innings.
    • I do find it amusing that some of the folks that are unhappy with this situation are fine with the Orioles gaming service time to suppress salary and delay the ability to choose an employer.
