I don't think you're completely naive, but Galvis is here on a one year deal.  Richie Martin will probably be with the organization next year.  I doubt Galvis will be.

So if Martin levels his game up this year while in AA or AAA, he might have a shot next year.  He'll be in his age 27 season.  Certainly not a prospect anymore but will have some room to grow.  

Richie Martin is still with the Os? Richie Martin is still in baseball as a player?  He definitely has room to grow, but a would bet dollars to donuts he isn’t on the opening day roster for the Os next year.

He might rip it up this year in the minors and earn it. Doubtful, but who knows?

What is that based on? Is Gunnar Henderson going to amaze in spring training and win the spot? Are they going to sign Carlos Correa for SS? Are we assuming that Martin will fall flat on his face in AAA or get injured again? He can't even win a utility role?

A ton of big name SS on market next year. Chris Taylor is a guy I would have interest in. I’m sure contending teams would love to him also. That said he won’t make huge money like the top of the class would.  I know he could wind up at 2nd.

Martin is down at the alternate site and from what I heard, has been one of the most impressive players down there.

Galvis still a good signing but man he looks bad at the plate right now. He was supposed to be a guy who didn't strike out much.

I wouldn’t count him out at all.    This is obviously a big year for him and I fully expect he will spend some time on the major league roster this season.

You might say he's been a galvanizing force. (Sorry I couldn't help myself.)

That's it, I'm picking him up off the waiver wire in my fantasy league! Hit the showers, Didi Gregorius! :disco:

Galvis has been a great pickup. You can’t do better than what he’s been so far as a stop gap. Especially considering how we really don’t have any MLB quality/ready IF depth. 
 

He’s been a pleasure to watch.

Yep...as I said when we signed him, would rather have Galvis and what we got for Iglesias than just Iglesias himself.

2021

Galvis:  .265 / .315 / .470

Iglesias:  .265 / .279 / .343

 

We criticize Elias pretty darn quickly for the Zach Pop type mistakes.....we should give him credit for the hits as well.

Agree. Galvis has been a great signing. Maybe not as much range as he did a few years ago. But you cant argue with a .780 OPS.

Well yes, but Galvis will play one season for us while we aren’t contenders whereas Pop might have been a key bullpen member on a future team.  

And in both cases, jury’s out on how they’ll do over the course of 162 games.

    • I’m still expecting offensive improvement over the remainder of the season but I must admit that the offense is worse than I thought it would be.     Mullins is far exceeding expectations but no one else is and a lot of players are below expectations.  Getting Santander back will be helpful, if he can start hitting and Mountcastle returning to form would be a huge boost. Just gotta wonder if we see improvement from C, 3rd and 2nd and if/when Mullins declines, how far is the drop?
    • Well, like I said, someone can go to Bowie. Between Henderson, Ortiz or Westburg, we can have someone in AA.  You can argue that either or all of them could be there imo. But generally speaking, you are correct. To me, it’s more important for Henderson and Westburg to play as much at SS as they can.  We need to figure out if those guys can stay there.  You should have some very solid idea by the end of the year...and perhaps, they already know but just in case you they don’t, you should be using this year to be sure. You know guys like Ortiz and Servideo can play SS, at least from the info we have heard.  If they have to play second base or the OF some this year while you figure out Henderson and Westburg, so be it.
    • My mental image of the 1960s is that it was a lot of low scoring pitchers duels with a lot of little shortstops bunting and stealing bases.  But the stealing bases part is all wrong.  In 1966 the Orioles had the best offense in the league and stole 55 bases all year, caught 41 times. The only teams to steal 100 bases were the White Sox and A's, and both of them were within 0.02 runs of being the worst offenses in the AL. In '66 the average AL team stole four fewer bases than the average AL team in 2019. In 1964 the Orioles were 4th in the majors in steals, but Luis Aparicio was the only player on the team with more than four.  Luis led the AL in steals nine straight years, but those included totals of 21, 28, 29, 31, and 40.
    • Can’t really argue with any of these on their own merits, but you do then face the question of how you reallocate the playing time to account for these changes.   For example, Joey Ortiz is hitting .295/.404/.458 at Aberdeen.   Good, but not necessarily promotion material at this early stage.    So what do you do with his playing time if Henderson and Westburg are suddenly both in Aberdeen as well?     Adam Hall is off to a slow start there, but are you going to demote him when he already played a full, successful season at Delmarva in 2019?     These are tricky decisions.   I can’t disagree with the idea that you look at the players who are most likely to be successful major leaguers, and when they are ready to move up a level, you move them up regardless of who else that affects.   But, it does make things more complicated when you’ve got other decent prospects who are going to lose playing time if a promotion is made.

    • Because a lot of people don’t want to go out to “enjoy themselves” while wearing those stupid masks.  Once Hogan said no more masks, that was good enough. I went to the store yesterday and almost everyone was still wearing them.  If that’s how it’s going to be, that’s fine.  It’s your choice.  I am just glad I have the option to not wear them.
