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.

Jeez man, use the colored font, I spit my beer all over the keyboard and monitor over that one. Well done and I agree COMPLETELY!!

Chris Shaw has been DFA'd to make room.  If he clears waivers he has to accept an outright assignment to Norfolk because he has never been outrighted before.

Maybe on exaggerating but who cares as they don’t want to win

So you make clearly incorrect statements about the signing, then when called on it you say who cares, they don't want to win.

Fine.  That tells us all they need to know about your posts.  Any point you make about the Orioles, I am just going to ignore you because who cares, they aren't trying to win.

If his glove is real good could be an option in 2022.  
 

I see I missed the green font again.

It’s absolutely possible...but a lot would have to go right.

How is he the same as Iglesias defensively? 

Galvis had a -3 OAA and -4% success added at SS last year compared to Igelisas at 3 OAA and 5% SA. That's a 6 OAA difference and 9% success added  difference. 

If you wanted those numbers defensively I think Sanchez or Martin could have done that. Heck, maybe even Urias. 

Now, he was much better in 2019 and 2018, so why the big drop off? I worry when players entering the season at 31 and coming off a big drop in defensive ability. Now maybe something was bothering him, I don't know, and I guess he's cheap enough, but those statcast offensive numbers are pretty putrid and if he's not going to bring a great glove, then why not give those PAs to Martin or even Urias?

I guess in a year where it probably doesn't matter, I just don't see how this upgrades us all that much.

Way too much noise in defensive stats in a SSS like 2020.  They mean nothing to me.

They are and have basically been the same player throughout their careers.

Either way, the team is better off with what they have vs just Iglesias.

Sorry.

I hated that pick.

I'm convinced they only took him in the first round because they gave up their second round pick for Cobb.

I don't see how they could have viewed him as a first round talent.

I think Gunnar is in A ball this year to start. 

For sure.   But maybe not at the end.  

With no MiL season in 2020 to evaluate, it’s really a black hole how much anyone was able to develop and how far they’ll get in 2021.    All we have to go on are the uniformly positive statements we get from the Orioles’ front office and coaching staff, and that kind of talk is not reliable.

If 2022 is like 2012, and Gunnar Henderson plus one whole summer of "Skill Development" can approach Machado's precocity.

I do hope the need to slide to 3B is for something a bit more fun than JJ Hardy though!

If Henderson can outplay Westburg for the Baysox SS gig and hold his own at 19/20 in AA, I don't know where else but the next year picture there is to go (we do like AAA MVP awards though).

With all the thoroughbred hype, an Aberdeen/Delmarva starting assignment pair for these two is "C'mon man" material.   Vavra was a college guy who went to the Sally and was MVP, but he was a 3rd rounder.

I grant AA for either of them is a big ask, but don't know how you work it if you think both are SS and need the game reps.

We'd be incredibly well served (lucky, even) to have something like the 2011 - 2014 version of JJ Hardy forcing that move. He averaged 3.6 bWAR/3.3 fWAR over that period.

Well if he hits a legit .400 as you suggested this year...

I wouldn't bank on him being up by 2022, but it's possible.  He'd be 21 in June of 2022.  He'd have to have an outstanding 2021 minor league season and carry it over to the start of 2022 in order to get promoted.  I'm sure we'll hear CoC's thoughts on the Orioles gaming his service clock at some point.

All depends on how well he does.  But I do think that if he's up in 2022, that's a good thing...means he's turned into a stud.

Don't push him. He may just make that argument for OD 2021...

So was he or was he not in the best shape of his life (with the ball exploding out of his hand)?

Have to ink him to a long term deal first.

I wonder if you could get him to sign an eight year contract for way cheap if you promise a 2021 promotion?

I consider Iglesias to be the better player.   12.4 rWAR in 841 games vs. 7.8 in 998.   That’s not trivial IMO.   At the same time, I agree with you that for one year, Galvis + prospects + $2 mm > Iglesias.   I happen to like the prospects we got.

But in any given season, there is minimal difference.  1 WAR give or take, for the most part over the last several years.

Both at ages where they could fall off a cliff at any moment.  Iglesias probably the better player but it’s minimal and nothing to really worry about.

    • Currently, the pitching staff is 14th in WAR (in the majors), 10th best in walk rate, 17th in total ERA and 7th in BP ERA. Nice numbers considering we apparently have the worst catchers in baseball.  I’m shocked that they could be this awful defensively, game calling, framing, etc...and yet we are finding some early success after building on last year, which wasn’t as bad as suspected. It’s almost as if the catchers defense can be overcome by other factors! (Or people are just clueless as to how to actually judge a C defense)
    • The issue is that you are intentionally taking the GMs statement that the Os are not measuring success by wins as meaning something else....that the Orioles are not trying to win games. And then extrapolating that into the Orioles are trying to lose games.    That simply isn’t what is going on. And I think you know that. I think in general folks are on board with the rebuild. We are also at the point where we are about as far from being competitive as we have been in a long time.      I don’t know how much the pandemic has effected the rebuild, but minor leagues have been shut down for a loooong time.  I can’t help but think it probably cost us a full year.    I don’t know if Hyde will be the manager in 2 months or 2 years.  I really don’t worry about that at all. Right now, I just want to see the Os get better and develop talent.    I would say this is the last year the Os can continue with a mindset of we are not measuring success with wins. I think it is likely that success next year will be marked by small improvement to something along the lines of 75-80 wins.    I am trying to enjoy the moments.    The moments Mancini reminds us of what he can be. The moments Mountcastle reminds us that he could be in the mix for ROY. The moments John Means looks like a real #1 or #2. And yes the moment we get to see AR, Diaz and others crack the lineup.    It’s not the same as fretting over when Hyde rests Santander or who he pitches in the 8th or 9th. But this ain’t Toronto and whether or not we use our historically good closer in the 6th, 11th or ever. Hyde is gonna learn or he won’t. In the end, of the GM gets the talent part, getting someone to manage will be a breeze. 
    • Personally, I'm surprised Sisco didn't get charged with a PB.  He has looked bad this year.
    • Yea, to think some people actually bought the idea that no outside food had to do with covid.
    • I’m not going until I don’t have to wear a mask outside. MASN will do just fine until this mess is over and people aren’t ratting others out for mask vs. no mask.
    • Yeah, hard to see how there could be an instinct (in any useful definition of the term) for a heavily rule-regulated game like baseball. I think the "feel," "knack," etc. for a sport arises from early inculcation and many years of repetition, coaching, and emulation. Even "tools," though necessary and closer to what one might consider innate abilities, can't provide that. In fact, I think that there are just as many times that a "hunch" (the closest I can come at the moment to defining instinct) leads to bad results as good ones, e.g. trying to take an extra base or steal one at the wrong time or in the wrong game situation or all sorts of guesses, such as what type of pitch will be thrown or where a ball is going to be hit, when not based in study or prep. Sometimes a manager's role is to rein in what the player's "instinct" is, such as when a pitcher is convinced they can go longer, but actually should be taken out.
