Nunez DFA

Recommended Posts

He originally looked like me might become an average defensive 3B.   Unfortunately, he regressed in that area the last two years and didn't look very good at 1B either.   That and a 2M salary as a DH did him in.    This is good news for D.J. Stewart who looks to have a shot at the DH job.

With Mountcastle, Mancini and Davis on the roster, Nunez was an expensive and unnecessary player.

How ironic!

They learned the lesson Trumbo taught. Home runs don’t compensate for horrible defense. And they had too many DH guys, so he was odd man out. Now Mancini is 1B(?) and MC is LF and Stewart is RF?

Be still my heart...

By mid-season, Santander, Hays, and Diaz in the OF, Mountcastle at 1B, and Mancini DH (or vice versa).

Stupid move 

Too many 1B/DH types.    I was sort of surprised, but I don’t think it matters much at all.

Yes, the position is plentiful but that doesn’t mean you dump production for nothing.

That’s my hope as well. That will be a good OF. Mullins as 4OF is good too, but it leaves Stewart as odd man out. I’m assuming Mancini/Mountcastle will rotate between 1B/DH, and then we need a good 3B, assuming Sanchez is at 2B, and then we might have a worthwhile team...

    • 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.  
    • o   Lindy McDaniel died.  McDaniel was one month short of his 85th birthday. The cause of death was the COVID virus.   I remember McDaniel when he pitched for the Yankees in the early 70's. He pitched for 21 Major League seasons, from 1955 through 1975. The versatile McDaniel won 141 games, was credited with 174 Saves, led the National League in Saves 3 times (1959, 1960, and 1963), and led the National League in Winning Percentage in 1960 (.750.) In 1970 at the age of 34 he had 29 Saves, a 2.01 ERA, and an 0.994 WHIP for the 2nd-Place Yankees (93-69.)   o
    • Translation: I realize it was an attempt at being witty, but I didn't like it.   "should be" and "expect" are both speculative statements. Neither really required any smarmy condemnation.
