And it seems that we are sending cash back? I wonder how much of Galvis’ salary we are paying in order to get this guy? Elias must be really high on him.

You had me at "really high"

A little sarcasm, but on Burch's high A team there are nine pitchers with 12+ K/9, and the team is 33-41.  Used to be if you had Burch's K rate and K:BB ratio you were on the fast track to the majors, on the cover of Baseball America.  Now I don't even know if he's a prospect.

I saw his #s and was impressed.  Someone (I think FRobby) made a comment about his k% being slightly above league avg-ish.   It made me pause and look.  Unreal how fast the game has changed.  When does the  Pendulum swing back?  Seems we are at an unsustainable extreme.

Don't worry, at some point it will get so bad, Elias will bring Stevie back up.

You don't have to tonight!   Valaika is starting.   Guess it's a platoon, Pat vs lefties and Domingo vs righties.

Thanks to both of you. I feel so much better.

I'll take either one over Leyba. I'd like to see Richie Martin get back and have some time at SS before his next injury, with Urias at second, where I think he might be OK.

Galvis had a salary escalator activated by trade, if I remember correctly. Good for him. 

Right. That was a part of his original contract with the O's.

I had quite a good salary escalator once, but got off on the third floor and took the stairs down. Happier now in a dicey neighborhood reading obscure books.

Galvis wasn’t here long enough to warrant an appreciation thread, I guess, but I did enjoy his brief time here.   He met or exceeded expectations and did so cheaply.   I kind of like the looks of Burch.   If he ever sees an inning of major league play, that’ll be one more benefit we got from the Galvis signing.

We essentially got a prospect for nothing. Galvis was a throw away here. Nice job

Other teams did better in this respect, taking players signed last off season and turning them into prospect value.

Pirates with Tyler Anderson

Cubs with Jake Marisnick

Hard to split out value (with Gomes included), but arguable the Nationals with Harrison and certainly their Schwarber deal which netted a nice Boston prpspect.

Schwarber signed an 11.5M deal with the Nats.

I would think that Burch's 15.2 K/9 IP is more than slightly above the league average, even if it's 12-something as Drungo mentioned. I wonder what types of pitches he relies on for the Ks.

    • I was thinking they'd go veteran to start the offseason, but with Nottingham in the picture now, he seems like a guy that Elias is going to at least give a chance to earn a big league job. Given he's out of options, I don't see him breaking camp with the club just to be DFA'ed a couple weeks later when Adley is promoted (assuming he starts the year in the minors, pending CBA). I'm not sure they give him a job right out, but I don't think they're going to have him fight just to earn a job for a couple weeks to then be DFA'ed. I think he either gets a job out of spring training or starts in AAA.  That said, I think a reunion with Wynns is who they'd pair with Adley and Nottingham. I could potentially also see someone like Mathis signed after the lockout if it looks like Adley will still start the year in AAA. Mathis is a vet, obviously, but he'll play this coming season at 39 and only got in 3 games in 2021. He seems like a guy that would be brought in to camp to be a de facto coach while given a chance to hold on. 
    • I’ve always hated the Mets, but if Buck were their manager I’d have to root for him to succeed.   He had his flaws (just ask Duquette), but in the clubhouse and in the games, he was excellent.   The city really took to his personality.   It’s a real shame that things ended so poorly.    I have to say though, the fact that a highly paid player “has let it be known” that he’d like Buck to be the manager sounds like early trouble for Billy Eppler as GM.  
    • I'd rather see him on the range than on a golf course -- less chance of injury. Mini-golf would be ever better.
    • I always liked Buck, and though it's hard to know what a manager is adding (or subtracting) I thought he was a big part of the Orioles' success in the previous decade. (Seems much longer ago.) I thought that right up until October 4, 2016. Since then, I've had a difficult time evaluating Buck. I became suspicious about pretty much every in-game decision he made. I was much more critical when I read about his loopy ideas for player evaluation, disfavoring freckles, young guys with thick beards, and players light eyes, and I wondered whether any of that stuff had hurt the Orioles by affecting decisions about retaining, acquiring and using players. When the Orioles made some really bad personnel decisions, harming the future of the team, I wondered whether Buck had a role in those as others asserted confidently that he did. I have a lot of pleasant memories of Buck (as well as "Buckle up" and "I like our guys" T-shirts), but my good will towards him was pretty much used up when he was dismissed. I hope whoever manages the Mets is wildly successfully. For the Mets to improve dramatically would, from my perspective, help in a couple of ways. It would provide a good test as to whether you can build a winning team by out-spending other teams and bringing in decent management. (I think you can, as long as you combine the dollars with good -- or at least not-terrible -- decisions, and some decent luck.) Second, by attaining and sustaining on-field success for five years or so, the Mets would be likely to provide more competition for the NYYs in terms of New York media attention. Since MLB is not subject to the antitrust laws, teams are permitted to exclude competition from the outside. Only the Mets (and to a very minor degree the RS and Phillies) can compete with the NYYs for the big dollars that are out there in the gigantic NYC metro market. They've done that effectively before (especially in the 1980s). With Cohen's money and some smart baseball guys, maybe they can do it again. https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/29174512/tim-kurkjian-baseball-fix-buck-showalter-sees-things-else-see https://eutawstreetreport.com/buck-showalter-once-saved-his-dog-from-a-hurricane/
    • This is a perfect encapsulation of a certain OH dynamic: Guys who play well in a given season are bound to regress Guys who play poorly in a given season have found their new normal / true talent level
    • I hope Buck does well but he is a major reason why the team is where it is today..just as he was a major reason for the initial turnaround.
