Nomar Mazara

Recommended Posts

Any interest?  He's being released by the Tigers.  Could the O's "fix" Mazara?  Is there anything to fix or is he what he is at this point?  Still just 26.  Yusniel Diaz will be 25 in October.

I'd offer him a AAA contact with a call up in Sept if he plays well.   If he is  on a minor league contract he will not be a FA after the season.  The O's have chance to see how he does and whether they want him on the 40 man roster in November.

Just adding talent to the system.

I wouldn't say he is "talent'.   He's 26 years old, his best year ever is 1.0 WAR, he is clearly a defensive liability.  

I'd rather have Renato Nunez.

And the major league roster only expands by 2 in September.  Probably a 3rd C (Cumberland most likely even though there is someone else we would all love to see) and an extra arm.

There will probably be injuries.   I don't know much about his defense but .989 fielding percentage does look that bad in RF.   If he does not perform well at AAA they can cut him.  But if he does well he could add to the talent.

Trending downward the last couple seasons and doesn't really offer anything that the Orioles don't already have in the outfield. 

Also, his advanced fielding metrics are bad and the last thing the O's need is another mediocre fielder in the outfield. The fact is if Mazara could hit enough to be a DH, he wouldn't be available right now.

    • And there was no three second rule in basketball. And soccer goalies could waste time dribbling like a basketball player after picking up a back pass from a field player. And…
    • According to the source I used, he was a RHP from Newport HS (WA).
    • I guess you’re too young to remember when the goalposts were at the front of the end zone.  Or when a jump shot from 24 feet was only worth 2 points.    
    • Imposter syndrome basically means you don't feel like you belong.
    • We should probably sign a catcher huh?
    • Part of the reason why we've seen the slashing style play go away is the astroturf fields from cookie cutter stadiums and domes are all gone. The Cardinals, Astros and Royals among other teams took advantage of their home field's playing surface. That meant hitters put the ball in play to take advantage of the bounciness of astroturf, and stealing more bases because the turf gave runners an advantage. Plus you saw teams valuing speed and athleticism over bigger players that swung for the fences. I liked seeing a mix in the styles of play between different franchises, whereas today pretty much all teams play the same style swinging for the fences.  
    • Even though the 60'6" has remained the same since 1893, the distance between the average of pitchers' release points and home plate has decreased because pitchers have gotten, on average, taller and longer-limbed. And the decrease over the past, say, 50 years has been significant. (For the same reason, there's also been an effective increase in the height of the mound.) I've seen some estimates, but I can't recall them right now. Nonetheless, I think it's more likely that the effort to produce the same effect will be made by increasing the number of pitches thrown by a pitcher, for example by limiting the number of pitchers used in a game or the number of pitchers on the 26-man roster. Other sports have been much more willing to change basic rules to improve the game: pro football has moved the goalposts, changed the extra-point and kickoff rules, added overtime, and protected quarterbacks and receivers. Basketball introduced the 3-point field goal, widened the lanes and banned zone defenses. Leagues in other sports haven't held their rules as sacrosanct as MLB. It's not practical for them to change the size of their standardized playing surfaces. There have been some suggestions to raise the baskets, and there's been some experimentation with that. At least some of those showed a drop in outside shooting accuracy and an increase in rebounding and the proportion of scoring by big guys -- not the desired effect.
