Baumann, Diaz, Lowther, and Wells get protected.  Prediction. 

Would be my list too. Would be very disappointed to lose Wells.

I knew an Orioles scout who told me when Sisco was in AA that he was basically Clevenger. I was like, "Really? you don't think he will hit better?" He thought the bat was slow and he would never hit for power. I do think he was wrong a bit on the power, but Sisco seems to have sold out any average for his new found power.

Sisco is bad. But Clevenger was also bad. But he did have one of two grand slams in an inning against the Royals. That was a fun game in a pretty dreadful series

For those saying Pop won’t be taken due to coming off TJ, Santander was taken after shoulder surgery too.

I think they should. Protect Pop

Apparently the list is top secret.

I do imagine this is a secretly potent half-hour of deadline where random trades of some substance could happen.

If it does come down to Pop or Wells who would you choose?  Shoulda done a multi option poll!   
 

I think it’s a tough call, but I am guessing most here would say to protect Pop.  But I like Wells.   I love it when the underdog succeeds.

Pop is more likely to get popped but Wells has the higher potential value.   I think Pop is more likely to become a ML setup man than Wells is to become a ML starter but relievers are easier to come by which is why I think both Pop and Matson are left exposed.     We should know any minute!

Yea I just figured most doesn’t think Wells will be able to offer much if any value at the MLB level.  Just the impression I get.   But Jamie Moyer....

Glavine hit 94 as a rookie.  McGregor played about three eras ago, as did Jones.

Jones had a K rate of 3.4, McGregor had a K rate of 3.8.  You think that plays in 2021?

Nunez released.   Bannon, Wells, Matson, Baumann, Lowther, Diaz added per Roch.

Do you think Jones and McGregor's K rates would be the same in this era?     You don't think Scott McGregor or Randy Jones could have pitched in this era?   Is that what you are saying?

    • Santander played well, and his defense earned a GG finalist spot, though Gallo clearly beat him. Defense is important. As he learns the intimate details of RF at OPACY, his D can be expected to improve. I don’t think offense improves linearly: as he addresses his flaws-or doesn’t- he will either dramatically improve, or stay about the same. His BABIP was .248, which is below league average(?) and his K rate was only 15.6%. His walk rate is pretty low, which indicates he has a good eye and makes contact, so even if nothing changes, I’d expect better production when the hits stop finding so many gloves. He was worth.9 WAR in 60 games. I’d expect 2 or above if he plays 150 games. Hays’ bat is a bit more suspect, but it’s logical for him to come into his own as he faces more MLB-level pitching. But his defense is wonderful, and even if he isn’t hitting as well as he should, he’s likely better on offense than Mullins( unless Mullins himself has come into his own, and his 2020 is his new normal.) Either way, I’m not worried about OF production, so long as Mc and Mancini aren’t out there.
    • I also think .900 OPS is very optimistic for Santander, when you consider that his .890 last year was built on a .315 ISO.    That’s Chris Davis in his best seasons-type power.   There were only six major league qualifiers last year with a .315+ ISO, and five in 2019.   I think Santander has nice power but not at that level.   Anything over .200-.225 would be gravy.    
    • Hays needs to be able to stay healthy for a season or he might just end up being the Nolan Reimold of the 2020's Orioles. 
    • The Rule V thing is a wellspring for me of the bigger Santander enthusiasm. We'll see what kind of dance teams dance about stuff like...Gosh, Adley and Yusniel missed development so they can't break in for a long while yet, but Rule V is a similarly big obstacle (maybe worse if you buy in to the trope too early exposure to stuff in The Show can "ruin" a guy), so he's perhaps developmentally younger, and there's a fair bit of delta on the medium-term projection if Santander's 2020 performance can count as "baseball 24" even though he was 25.
    • Fair enough..Wildcard tends to have these completely over the top takes based off of SSS that just don’t make sense.     His use of the word should Deserves to be called out imo.  
    • My point has nothing to do with the relative merits of your prognostication, or of Wildcards. It has to do with you finding it necessary to be kinda nasty in criticizing Wildcard's speculation, and then immediately speculating on the same subject. I don't care whether you disagree with him. It just seemed a few notches over the top to me.
    • Should means that if Santander had a slash line of 280/325/500, hit 25 homers and drove in 85, Wildcard is saying he would be disappointed in that season. If I had to guess, 90+% of Orioles fans would sign up for that season for him right now.  That would likely exceed or meet most projections and predictions of him.  Yet Wildcard would say, he should have done better. Thats an over the top take to have on him. No one, outside of maybe Santanders family, would say he should do that and if he doesn’t, it’s a disappointment.     I am expecting him to be in line with what has done in his career with some slight improvements. I think it’s fair to have those expectations.
