Not quite…The players on the 60 day IL have to go back on the 50 and will fill those spots.

We are five guys that need to be added from the disabled list, Akin, Stewart, Harvey,Lopez and Mateo.

Fill up the 40 man again, but there’s plenty of other guys will depart, and I fully expect Stewart to go as well.

When do the 60 day guys need to be added?

Abad comes off after the WS. 

I figure Watkins, Kriske, Krehbiel, Mattson, Handhold, and Greene are all likely to come off.

No later than 5 PM the day after the World Series ends.

I can’t believe Cuiffo is still on the roster. I think we could find just as good as a backup C on a milb deal and not tie up a 40 man spot all offseason. I get that he’s insurance for Severino. And we do need two catchers until AR arrives after 6/1. 
 

Martin and Bannon could easily go to. They’re not so sound defensively and they haven’t exactly lit AAA on fire either. 
 

Id rather us make some waiver claims on some high ceiling flyers or take advantage of some other teams that might be having legit 40 man roster concerns for players in the Mateo mold.

I like Martin but don’t disagree on either. As for Cuiffo, head scratcher. If they saw something in him, why didn’t they bring him up until the very end? I liked Wynns more between the two. 
 

Besides being a former first rounder (2013) he was suspended for 50 games for some drug: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Ciuffo

I will be astounded if Ciuffo is on our 40 man roster when next season begins.

Bundy sputtered for 2-3 years, not nine. IDK, I have personally had enough. Waging my campaign. “Dump the mullet!” I know he is a favorite of many here, but how long do we have to wait to do the inevitable? He is a favorite based on a glimpse of what he could be.

I'll be honest, I have zero expectations for Hunter Harvey anymore, but, if he was DFA'd by another team, he's the kind of arm I'd be happy to see the Orioles get and stash on the 40-man.

Now I haven't done the full analysis of the 40-man with regard to players who need to be protected yet (busy with prospect stuff obviously), but I just don't see him as a guy you just dump unless it comes down to obsoletely needing a spot.

Do I expect Hunter Harvey to be in the pen next year? Based off his inability to stay healthy I'd say no, but I also know he has the capability to be an effective reliever so in the off chance he can finally stay healthy, that's one less arm to find and he's cheap and controllable.

Interesting to see who picks up Wynns and how quickly. He’s definitely going to get a job somewhere.

If gets more than a minor league contract I'd be astounded. He's not a major league player any more.

I have close to the same point of view.  There are a few players that I think make the 40 man roster so they are protected from the Rule 5 draft but are traded during the off season to make room for veterans that need to be added.   Hunter is one,  and Diaz is two.   

You can say they don't have trade value but Elias is pretty good at getting low minors guys or Dominicans in return.  And he values that return.

    • Cardinals were smart enough not to resign Pujols when he hit his 30’s knowing he would never be able to match the production from the first decade of his career. With the way the Orioles have operated during the Angelos era they almost certainly resign a player of that caliber. It’s a mistake you can’t make when you’re not the Yankees or Dodgers. The Cardinals usually avoid these kind of crippling moves and that keeps them competitive. With Elias hopefully we see that with the O’s. 
    • Marte, who may considered the best CF option via FA, was just signed by the Mets.
    • On the contrary, it is completely true. The team will have ebbs and flows, based on random chance And misfortune such as is happening to Kjested right now, But if you avoid long-term contracts, all of which are stupid, trade your guys at peak value and restock the farm, and there’s no reason why you can’t continually be a positive team. The Cardinals do it and they never have a single digit draft choice they always draft in the high teens, and yet they still have a good team over and over.
    • Going into 2009, Tillman was BA’s no. 22 prospect, Matusz no. 25, Arrieta no. 67.   Britton wasn’t ranked yet but was no. 63 the next year.  Brad Bergesen was the reigning Eastern League pitcher of the year.   David Hernandez had led the league. In strikeouts.   So, it was a more impressive group than your post suggests.   
    • Even worse living with the knowledge that Cardinals owner Bill DeWitt Jr. could have been the Orioles owner all this time, but thanks to Peter Angelos outbidding him it never happened. 
    • Nothing happens til it happens, but can we glean anything meaningful from what the insiders say?   ”Listening to offers” means nothing. Does anyone NOT listen to offers? However, that’s probably indicates less interest than a term like… ”Dangling.” What does that mean? Is GM A calling up GM B and saying,” hey, I got this hot guy, and he can be yours! All I need is XX.” Is GM A being coy and hitting that MAAAAAAYBE he’ll listen…? Regardless, it probably indicates more desire to trade, but maybe not as much as… “Eager to deal” or “seeking the best matchup” which is where GM A is calling up everyone in the Rolodex and saying,” Have I got a deal for you! AND if you ACT NOW…no? Well, how about……etc etc” All  those terms indicate at least partially dealing from a position of “I don’t have to” “I’m in no hurry” “if you don’t, someone else will,” and so on. But pity the guys who… ”Are willing to eat most of the contract…” the fools who rush in, and then find it veeeeery expensive to rush back out.. poor San Diego would be less poor if they hadn’t flung all that cash at Mr Hosmer, but they did, and he has been smiling ever since…and they..” are willing to eat most of his contract” Anyway, where does that leave the Orioles? We’re listening. Sure we are. Everyone listens except your cat in the backyard who doesn’t want to come in yet. We are “dangling”…. That means we’re listening a bit more earnestly, but still it’s our call. Nothing will happen unless it’s very good for the Bmore boys. So let’s see what kind of horse trader Mike is, and what can he bring home in return for the shiny bauble he is dangling…
    • I think we are going to have to get some favorable results from our own young pitchers to improve significantly in 2022. Last year was a bottom 20% outcome in that regard compared to the range of possible outcomes from that group.    If things break the other way in 2022 we could see a lot more wins.   But you can’t just expect that to happen given their performance to date.
