Tracking Ex Oriole Thread

Flaherty at one point had value to a winning team because he could super sub just about anywhere and play passable defense and occasionally hit a homer or go on a small hit streak. Unfortunately for him, he got too expensive for his value and his game slipped from its marginal skills in the first place. 

Luckily for us O's fans, we get to still watch Flaherty. He's just called Jace Peterson now.

And Jace is lucky to be in the majors, imo.

How long b4 we sign him?

Looks that that Atlanta FLASH in April has fallen back to Flash in Baltimore.

Please move on no matter how much Buck likes him.

He’s hitting .082 since May 12.    So, not exactly surprising.    

If the Prodigal Son returns he'll make Chris Davis look like Ruthian!

He played very well for Manny when Manny hurt his knee and in the playoffs.  in 2014, Sept.Oct, he had an OPS of .804

While he wasn't Manny at 3rd, he was still above average with the glove.

Hard to compare any SS to the Blade, which some say was the best glove at SS in the business, ever.

Missing my point a bit, which is that Ryan was fine when he was able to serve strictly as a backup utility infielder.  He has no business playing more time than that as his bat sucks and pretty much always has (worse career average than Belanger, for example)  But Belanger COULD and DID play full-time even with his terrible bat because his defense was so much better- when Ryan has played full-time it is because somebody else was hurt, not because his glove or bat deserved a full time role.  

Water under the bridge for me as I really could care less at this point about Ryan Flaherty's future career path because there is no way I believe he is any kind of fit for our rebuilding project, imho.  Although, of course,  he was always a favorite nugget of Buck's and Brady too so, who knows, the current Orioles management certainly could make Flaherty a deal and bring him back on board this offseason.

The Senators had a great glove at SS and no bat, which was pretty typical in those low ERA pitcher eras.

As great as the Blade was, I sometimes, think he would not be an everyday player on contending teams.

Until Cal came along, a lot of SSs on good teams were defense and no hit..Dal Maxvill withCards, Ray Oyler with Tigers, Bud Harrelson with the Mets, Eddie Brinkman was in that mold...

Honus was a freak of nature...most shorstops for the next 75 years were much more like Pee Wee Reese and Phil Rizzuto than they were anywhere close to being like Honus.   Except maybe Ernie Banks though he did not stay at short.

Chaz Roe with the breaking ball for the backwards K!

That almost looked like a Bugs Bunny cartoon piece of fiction.

It was very deliberate, very slow, and had an incredibly large break.
