Sisco DFA’ed

Several times you said that I or others don't care about defense as long as the C hits above average. That is not what I said and I think everyone here would agree defense matters. The question is how much and whether Pedro hits enough to be worth it. 

The quotes that you shared from me neither refute my point nor are contradictory. you just said yourself, “the question is how much and whether Pedro hits enough to be worth it”

I never specifically mentioned anyone by name and even my direct comment to you was,” Your point SEEMS TO BE THAT IF HE IS HITTING WELL ENOUGH….” Which you just confirmed in your own comment, which is whether Severino hits well enough to be worth his defense, which is exactly the attitude I inferred.

The comments that I am referencing claim that Severino’s offense-and Sisco’s as well-was sufficient to compensate for the defense. I always responded the same”no it doesn’t, league-average bedamned.”  
I do not think anybody is making those arguments anymore, for which God be praised, but they certainly did.

We all understand your argument. The quotes I shared were examples of straw man arguments you were attributing to myself or others.

What can Severino do that Sisco can't?

He hablas. I think the only reason he is still here is his salary, but he is certainly more athletic than Chance. Maybe, the hope is that he regains the approach he had in the first month of 2020. Maybe it is just for some form of continuity. I was once a fan of Pedro, but that seems like a long time ago.

Do you call up Adley and Grayson in September to give the fans something to look forward to? Build a little excitement for the talent that's coming?

I would be shocked if they call up either one. That service time thing.

Even if it's like the last 20 games of the year?

Yep. I am not saying your idea is bad, just that they will likely not do it. Especially not Grayson, or any other young pitcher. 

Catching wise, I think they want to get a strong look at Ciuffo and Cumberland. I can see either one, or both, coming up this year. If Severino does not pick it up soon, he'll join Sisco as a DFA. Who knows, maybe Adley somehow forces their hand, but there is no advantage in his development to come up.

I don't agree.

    • Oh, I don’t agree with it, but after years of having arguments about “sunk costs” I’m left without any other impression.  In my mind, including Davis when the team was horrible, and now Severino or Franco, these guys are taking the roster spot of someone more deserving. Not always, but there’s a pretty good case for someone to take any of those spots.
    • Per MLB rules online, the ball is live if it is “unintentional interference.”
    • He was emptying the tank there.   The first inning or two, he was slower.   The first touch of 94-95 I noticed wasn't until a few innings along, on a 2 out 2 strike pitch.   But he really seemed to pick up steam in the middle. Hartford seemed kind of terrible, but at least he held serve, if not a little more.   On the Either/Or, I'd easily pick Rodriguez still.
    • It was Roth followed by Roth tonight in Delmarva.   I don’t recall that happening before with them.  
    • For the second time in a couple of weeks, an Orioles ball boy touched a fair ball that bounced in his direction tonight and the ball was ruled dead when he touched it. Unlike the other incident, this ball literally came right at the ball boy’s chair. He barely had to move his glove to a spot maybe 18 inches under his lap.  He was mightily embarrassed when he realized his mistake.   The other incident was more egregious, though neither was good and the the ball boy/girl supervisor really needs to call a meeting and let all these kids know it’s an unacceptable mistake.  (I saw another ball boy/girl do this in a recent O’s road game, I believe). That said, here’s my question.  Assume the kid jumps from his chair and the ball either rattles around under the chair or ricochets off one of the legs and back out.   In either instance, Is that a live ball? I think the kid is supposed to try to move the chair to avoid those scenarios, but I’m still curious what the ruling would  be.   By the way, a few innings later the same ball boy did a nice job of snagging a foul ball that had bounced off the side wall and was about to go into the field of play.   The fans sitting over there cheered him, something I doubt they would have done normally but they did it to, quite literally, “cheer him up” after his prior mistake.  Classy move.  
    • I don’t mind it much when the TV guys do it, since you can see the action.  It bothers me more on radio, where you’re dependent on the announcers to know what’s going on.   A skilled announcer can do an interview between the action but describe the game decently at the same time, and minimize the spillover.
