So was Hays throw that almost got Wendle at 3rd base a couple of innings ago as awesome as the radio announcers said it was?  Or are they just so desperate for any positive that they got carried away with their excitement?

It was pretty cool. Sounds like they oversold it a little

He's arbitration eligible this off-season, right?  Not sure it's worth it to tender him.

If you think he bounces back and you can flip him at the trade deadline then yeah give him an offer.  

Honestly though I would just let him go.

I’m not saying this to get a laugh but I think Fry is better than this. This is an awful funk.

I could see the Orioles try and figure out a one year deal with him.

I must say I really hate modern baseball with the four five six pitchers per game each team.  I hate seeing that crap.  I remember Tippy Martinez where they would let him pitch three innings or more sometimes.

Sure he's better than this.

Almost anyone that can find their way on a 40 man roster is better than this.

Is Fry good enough to be worth bringing back?

 

It's pretty clear that if an offer was on the table at the deadline he should have been traded.

Sometimes Hyde lets the starter go three innings or more.

He went 7 in relief once.   And I think he gave up one hit.   And the Orioles came from behind to win.

Outside of Means, I don't know if any other Orioles starters have gone 7 innings this year. I want to say maybe Harvey or Zimmerman.

If he agrees to your price he is good enough. If Orioles let him go he is guaranteed to get better deal?  Point being offer him similar money to this year with bonuses.

    • I don’t quite understand the concern over Mayo’s size, and why some folks believe that will keep him from sticking at 3rd base. He’s listed at 6’5” / 215lbs. I believe that’s an inch taller and about ten pounds heavier than Cal Ripken Jr. was when he was a rookie at 3rd in 1982. Cal’s size never seemed an impediment to him defensively while he was at 3rd, and it certainly didn’t appear to hurt him when he moved to the more demanding position at SS.    Right now Austin Riley is playing pretty good 3rd base for the Braves, and he’s listed at 6’3” / 240lbs. If somebody his size can stick there for a World Series contender why can’t Mayo do the same for us? 
    • I think we can pretty safely rule out Baumann and Kjerstad here Honestly, I could see the case for Hall, Henderson or Westburg. Tony has had Henderson ahead of Westburg pretty much all year, so I'm going to eliminate Westburg. Game then becomes which hurts the guy more in Tony's eyes? Hall being injured for most of the year or Westburg's poor defense. If I could have only one of these guys in the system, I'd pick Hall because the upside is tantalizing and we really need starting pitching. I'm going to guess Tony feels the same, but I still have a strong hunch it's Henderson. Going with "Disabled List" Hall here.
    • Good write up. Looking forward to (hopefully) seeing him pitch in the big leagues in 2022. Back in the day the Orioles always broke their young starters in as long relief specialists, and I’m wondering if that might be the best role for G-Rod when he’s eventually promoted to the majors. Give him 50-60 pitches in a blowout once or twice a week. They would be low pressure innings where he could find his footing without having to worry about wins and losses. If I remember correctly that’s how Flanagan, McGregor, Boddicker, Ben McDonald, and maybe even Wayne Garland saw their first big league action. I’d certainly rather watch a kid like Rodriguez in that spot this coming season than a 29 or 30 year old journeyman who’s on his fifth team in six years.

    • Roch seems on board: “If the Orioles can implement their prospect plan at third base, Coby Mayo will be handling the hot corner and hitting long home runs for many years. “They can figure out how to occupy the middle infield with the batch of shortstops who crash their top 30 prospects lists, including Gunnar Henderson and Jordan Westburg among the first 10. Henderson could be the shortstop and Westburg the second baseman. They could reverse roles. “One of them could move over to third, but good luck trying to budge Mayo. “You can delay the fourth-rounder, but you can’t hold Mayo for long.” https://www.masnsports.com/school-of-roch/2021/10/who-starts-at-third-base-while-orioles-wait-for-mayo.html
