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.

    • And I don’t mean, “I hope he’s traded.”   What are your expectations and hopes on the field? For his career, Santander is a .248/.290/.454 hitter.   Last year, he was at .241/.286/.433.   In his 37 game season in 2020, he was at .261/.315/.575.   The three projection systems published on BB-ref and Fangraphs to date project as follows: Marcel: .248/.299/.452 Steamer: .252/.301/.462 ZiPS: .259/.299/.463 All very much in the same ballpark, .751-.763 OPS, a tad above his career .744 mark.    I can’t really argue with those projections in terms of what I expect.  And of course, you have to assume there’s a significantly higher than average risk of him missing time with injury.   So, if he plays 110+ games with a .751-.763 OPS, I don’t think you can be disappointed with that.   But, on the other hand, if he gets lucky with his health, I think he could do considerably better.    I really think he was never 100% or close at any point last year, and that affected his offense and perhaps his defense even more so.   I think if he can stay pretty healthy (and I’m not talking about perfection here), it would be reasonable to hope for a .260/.305/.485 type campaign.   I don’t see him matching his .314 ISO from his short 2020 campaign, but he’s got enough power to manage a .225 ISO in my opinion.    So, I think the most likely scenario is a .750-.760 type season with a good chunk of missed time, but I’m hoping for a relatively healthy, .790ish campaign.   With far improved defense over 2021, when he really seemed slowed by his injuries in the OF.
    • Age issue?  He's gonna be a year late going into his first minor league season.  You think the Orioles are going to treat him differently because of age if he performs?
    • Buck just wanted to stay with his guys as long as he could. All managers want to win today, none want to risk their job status on a rebuild if they have a choice. Buck is no different in that regard. He had Angelos ear, which ended in some bad roster decisions.  
    • Sure, it's an uphill battle for almost everyone.  But the gradient is a more steep now. I don't think it's as easy as "either good or not".  He can be better and still have to deal with the age issue.  "Sure he's having a good season but he's three years older than player X".
    • It wasn't going to be an uphill battle without the injury?  If he fully recovers then he's still the same player with the same skills and ability as before just a year behind.  In the end he's either good or not.
    • I think he earned the ending to his career he currently has.  I'm fine with him going out on a low note. He won some games with the Orioles but ultimately lost more than he won. I'm sure Trembley tried his damnest to bring Baltimore a winner. I wouldn't want Buck managing a team I was rooting for in 2022.  Would you? He did have a heck of a year in 2012 tho.
    • That’s kind of a non sequitur, isn’t it?   Even if you think he had a significant role in the Orioles’ collapse, does that mean he wasn’t trying his damnest to bring Baltimore a winner?   Did he not care about his players, or the fans?   Did he not also have a big role in their success before the collapse?
