O’s Sign Galvis. 1/$1.25 million

Recommended Posts

I'm actually a little surprised the financial terms were this modest after the Jays got Semien - this is the first instance I see in the Top ~60 Fangraphs guesses at $6M AAV and up where someone has signed for less than half the guess amount.

Infielders below him like Villar, Jake Lamb, Brad Miller, Hanser Alberto maybe tossups to even get guaranteed MLB deals.

Have we another $1.5M for Maikel Franco or a Jonathan Schoop nostalgia fest?   SS was always going to be first.

Who cares they can get a minimum guy or just should’ve drafted a rule 5 glove guy and saved 1 million dollars.

You see saying a Rule 5 player has the glove he does? I’m not saying he is Belanger but he is solid and durable. On a team like this that matters.

Run prevention has a potential of being pretty good for the Os this year.

Middle infield considering how much Iglesias had to DH will be much improved. I like Alberto some but his glove regressed last year.

You set me down in a restaurant and hand me a menu with the only two dishes being Chopped Liver and Hotcakes and I'll get the Hotcakes every time.

I like both.   Not at the same time though.

Look there are things recently that aggravate many of us with this team. That said, Sanchez and Galvis have legit potential to give this club more production than what their contracts would suggest. 
 

The media likes the $8-10M signings  because it’s a sign a team is not “tanking.” They give credit to rebuilding teams because they are spending and “trying.” If these two produce 4 WAR between them that will be ignored.

One more thing. I want to see Hays stay healthy. 
 

Also hope Severino steps it up behind the plate. He can be irritating at times.

I don’t love it, but it’s an OK move at that price.    I’m glad it’s a one-year deal.

That's about where I am.  I'm hoping that someone in the system steps up at SS and is ready for OD 2022 or to be called up partway through 2022.

Agreed.   I’m hoping one of Westburg and Henderson will be a quick mover.

Yes.  The reports on Henderson out of the satellite camp last summer were encouraging.  Westburg seems to have some good upside, too.

Ultimately I’d like to see both in our starting infield.

    • I like Hays in left and Mullins is center.  Hays does not seem to dive as much in left.  Keeping Hays healthy is key and if playing left keeps him on the field that is what I would do.
    • Who had Aaron Boone in the 2021 managerial Deadpool? 
    • Interesting historical fact... That clip in the Blues Traveler above... the two steam engines slamming into each other at high speed. That really happened. Caused a real tragedy. The Union Pacific RR or Southern Pacific of the 1870's-1880's, I forget... They were going to decommission/scrap two old Engines. So they figured... they might as well make some money off it. So they SOLD TICKETS! Fired up the two steam engines on the day, and ran them headlong into each other at full speed. They miscalculated... when the trains hit each other, boilers at full steam 212+ degrees... they sprayed rivets and metal fragments for MILES. ALL over the assembled crowd who BOUGHT TICKETS. Don't remember if anyone died but many, many bloody injuries. A tragic scene. All for the cause of a bunch of RR whores trying to squeeze every dollar out of every situation they faced. Capitalism at it's BEST!
