Tracking Ex Oriole Thread

Recommended Posts

Hyun-Soo Kim hit (is hitting? I think the KBO is still going on) .349/.408/.560 with 109 RBI in 121 games for the LG Twins.  Striking out in less than 10% of plate appearances, which is physically impossible in the '20 Majors.

Tyler Wilson is 10-8, 4.44, 106 Ks and 39 walks in 142 innings.  24 starts.

Not an Oriole, but former Cubs uber-prospect Addison Russell is OPSing .669 for the Kiwoom Heroes.

Odrisamer Despaigne, arguably best name in Oriole history, is 15-7, 4.07 for the KT Wiz.

Mike Wright is 11-6, 4.07 in 141 innings with NC Dinos.

Dan Straily, who allowed 442 homers in 15 innings for the O's last year is 12-4, 2.53 with eight homers allowed in 170.2 innings for the Lotte Giants.

Zack Britton had a nice ALCS, pitching 4 scoreless innings and striking out 6 while yielding only 1 hit and 2 walks.  In the wildcard series he threw 1.1 innings and yielded only two walks, but they both scored when the pitcher who followed (entering with 2 outs in the 7th) yielded a two run double.   Overall, a good postseason for Britton BUT THE YANKEES LOST!!!

Saw this post and went to look at see when Zack is a free agent again and saw the Yankees have a decision to make after the world series:

$1m assignment bonus if traded. Club must decide on 2022 option following 2020 WS; if club declines 2022 option, then Britton may opt out of contract immediately.

Pretty easy decision if you ask me.   They’ll pay him.

Manny the top 3rd baseman by baseball reference WAR, 5th overall among position players.

Did the Padres get what they paid for? I say probably not.

He's got a 1.000 ops and leads the NL in HR's this year. I'd say he's finally reached his ceiling after a disappointing first year in San Diego.

Are some grapes sour?

I say probably.

 

He's an MVP candidate on a playoff team.

 

Also why is this in Orioles' Talk?

Manny finished the year with a .304/.370/.580/.950 batting line over 60 games, notching 2.8 rWAR. Would be a 7 WAR season even extrapolated over 150 games. That would be good for his 3rd best year of his career, just behind 2015 (7.5) and 2016 (7.3), years in which he played 162 and 157 games, respectively. If we spread it over 162 games, it would be 7.6, which would be his best of his career. 

Obviously, he might not keep up the pace. Alternatively, his pace could have improved. Point is that he had a hell of a year and there's no way the Padres are upset about the deal right now sitting at the end of 2020.

Dan Straily notched his 200th strikeout today, the first KBO pitcher to reach that mark in a season since Hyun Jin Ryu in 2012.

Baseball reference has him at 185K's.  I know they are slow to update, but if they are only missing one game then he struck out 15 in his last outing.  Pretty impressive.

I believe he did.   This was in a tweet by someone who follows that league, and it noted he had a big K day and surpassed 200.

Must be nice to be a guy like Straily who wasn't effective in the MLB anymore but can go dominate in Japan.  If you still feel good, love the game and want to get a few more paydays, it's a good option for a guy like that.

MLB players probably go over there and the KBO and feel like
