I guess ummm the os are done with his observation and evaluating?!??!  I can’t explain this? Can anyone explain this rationale?

Could be they are going to bring up a catcher for the Boston series because Pedro will be out a couple more days but not long enough to go on the IL.   And they felt he was the most expendable.  He has been getting very little playing time of late.

So he scored the winning run to beat the Yankees and they told him to just keep on running to Norfolk.

I guess so, this does make the most sense.

Wish it would be Adley Rutschman then I would watch every game closely. I know, I know service time clock so it's not happening and my brain knows it's the right call to wait.

That makes the most sense. Someone is going on the 60 day IL then.

After looking, Tanner is the only player on the 10 day IL.

He sucks. But I am sure Elias and his eye for talent can’t be wrong.

Small sample size. What does the last month hurt running him out there. Evaluating is what should be done now,or at least that’s why Elis and Hyde say it is. If he sucks then cut bait on him. But sending him to the minors doesn’t make sense

He isn’t Mark Reynolds at 3b bad, but when you are below the Mendoza line and not hacking it defensively at 2b, your future isn’t bright. He needs an off-season training plan.

I think the answer is just as they saw what they wanted to see to determine What they wanted to determine. There’s no reason to option him, however, unless there’s somebody better who also need some ABs, and I don’t know who that would be. He can’t hit and he can’t defend, that doesn’t leave much.

I think it’s as simple as we lost a SS option and Urias and Gutierrez are playing 2B and 3B. So Jones wasn’t needed. So might as well have him play in Norfolk rather than right the pine. Plus we do likely need to add a catcher. We’ll see what organizational catcher gets a cup of coffee.

Nick Cuiffo is my guess, due to him being on the Taxi Squad since Wynns was promoted.

    • Buck, Adam Jones, JJ Hardy and the other mainstays wanted one last shot because they knew a rebuild would take at least 4+ years and the clock on their baseball career was ticking.  I don't blame for trying in 2017, but by 2018 it was obvious that the Orioles had to rebuild. I don't think that is something you could have expected Buck, Duquette, Adam Jones and JJ Hardy to advocate for because they wanted to win now and not ride out a  multi-year rebuild.  Well Duquette might have been game for a rebuild, but it was time to go a new direction with the front office. 
    • I think that if you have two players that are playing at a similar level you go with the younger player.  I think that if you have an older player performing at a slightly higher level you go with the younger player.
    • I wish Trembley all the success in the world.   He’s a stand up guy.   Buck was a much better manager IMO.   
    • 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.
