4 Moves That Need To Be Made

Recommended Posts

In my opinion

1. Trade Freel for a bag of balls or whatever we can get

2. Send Pie down. Can't hit never is going to. He is so uncomfortable playing left field that he is not a positive in the field. If he dosn't clear waivers, so be it.

3. Release Eaton

4. Send Bass down. So what if he does not clear waivers, he is not in our future.Not the type of player that is going to comeback to hurt you.

1A. Call up Moore. We need a backup third baseman. Wiggington is not the answer as our backup. We all will remember Bass's overthrow against the Yankees. Truth be told there were two balls hit to third that inning if Moore had been there that would have probably been outs.

2A. Call Montanez up. Much better bat and will field as well as Pie right now. So will Scott on a platoon.

3A. The obvious, call Bergesen up

4A. Recall Albers

I think this makes us a better team without doing any damge to our future.

Can't hit and never will, did you feel the same way about Jones at the beginning of last year? Remember, AJ came from an AL team, Pie has spent his career in the NL and has not seen a whole lot of AL pitchers in his time there, please give the kid more than 15 at-bats before rushing to judgment, and he's played 3 games in left so far, he'll get better at it.

In conclusion, you don't know what you're talking about, and should probably keep your fingers off the keyboard for a while.

Sorry do not want to give him one more at bat. He does not have the offensive tools that Jones had. That is obvious Seattle had to trade there best young player for Beddard. Chicago traded Pie for a player they dumped quickly. Take a gander where he sets up in the batters box. Pitches right down the middle look outside to him. He can barely reach that pitch.

You're still wrong.

1. Although Freel does seem redundant you are not basing this on objective knowledge. Rather you are repeating what you have heard a bunch of other people say. Freel is the back up 2nd baseman. Who would you rather have...You clearly don't think Wiggington is sufficient for third. Freel plays hard every day he is in the lineup and is a better defender than Moore. Oh and he has also had significantly more success at the MLB level than Moore.

2. Please open your mouth and insert your foot. This reaction is based on absolutely no empirical evidence from this season. Pie has looked fine and done alright in the box. That bunt this year would have been a hit if they didnt have a gg caliber 2nd baseman. Let him have at least 250 AB's before you pass judgment.

3. I agree completely. Please before next Saturday. I have tickets to the game and Backett v Eaton scares me. Eaton is not the kind of pitcher we need on this team. He is the type of pitcher we have tried to get off this team, for instance by letting Cabrera "walk".

4. Bass is clearly not the option. I agree. And its not only based on his perfomances thus far but its clear that he will always struggle as a MLB pitcher. But your solution would take some time.

In all I agree with you pitching statements but I don't think your position player assessments are based on

Wouldn't it have been nice to have Bergesen in the pen as the long man today? He could have gained some low stress experience against ML bats, and maybe kept the Rays where they were and given us a chance to come back. Remember the good old days when the new kid soon to be starter was brought up as the long reliever? It was win/win for the team and win/win for the player. Now days we get flotsam like Bass coming in to the 5th and in ten minutes the game's all but over, and there's no upside for anybody.

    • A better order Better bring in a haul - Mullins, Hays, Means Some To little value; could gain much more value w/ good start to 2022 - Santander, Mancini, Sulser, Scott, Tate, Lyles Currently no value, but bc of age, service time, and/or potential to reach peak value, IF they were to perform WOULD have trade value - Fry, Lopez, Odor, Stewart    
    • I was shocked at first but did some research on the current market, and  1 year 7 million is spot on for Lyles to the O's
    • They have no current value, but this thread discusses potential to build value as well.
    • There was no real order
    • I do not want Green.  Just way too many strike outs, too many holes in the swing for me to be comfortable with.   
    • September/October2021 -- finally getting around to this. 11-20 record 6-14 vs. AL East 8-10 at home 3-10 on the road 5-7 in one-run games 1-4 in extra innings Batting 3.90 runs/game was 14th in the AL .237 BA was 12th .308 OBP was 10th .391 SLG was 12th .699 OPS was 12th 1.19 HR/G was 7th .225/.314/.398 with RISP (274 PA, 236 AB, 53 H, 94 TB, 86 TOB) Pitching 5.84 ERA was last in the AL 5.97 RA/G was last 1.77 HR/G was last 5.05 starter ERA was 12th 4.37 IP/start was 12th 6.63 bullpen ERA was last 7 saves was tied for 8th 17 save opportunities  10 blown saves  Defense 10 unearned runs was tied for 10th fewest in the AL 0.42 errors/game (13 errors) -0.7 fangraphs defense 1.3 UZR (+ 3.3 OF, +2.0 IF) -1 Rtot -3 Rdrs 0 OAA Cumulative through September/October 2021 Batting 4.07 runs/game was 14th in the AL .239 BA was 10th .304 OBP was 12th .402 SLG was 11th .705 OPS was 12th 1.20 HR/G was 10th .232/.311/.353 with RISP (1437 PA,  1241 AB, 288 H, 438 TB, 445 TOB)(.664 OPS with RISP was last in the AL) Pitching 5.84 ERA was last in the AL 5.90 RA/G was last 1.59 HR/G was last 5.99 starter ERA was last 4.54 IP/start was last 5.70 bullpen ERA was last  26 saves was last 54 save opportunities was 13th 28 blown saves was tied for 2nd most Defense 46 unearned runs was fewest in the AL  0.46 errors/game (74 errors) was 3rd fewest 0.1 fangraphs defense was 8th in AL -3.9 UZR was 10th  (-4.4 OF, +0.5 IF) -46 Rtot was 14th - 30 Rdrs was 12th -16 OAA Conclusion:  The offense was pretty much its usual well below average self in September/October, and while the hitting with RISP was a little better than it was on the season as a whole (.712 OPS vs. .664), somehow the team still was 14th in runs per game despite doing better than that in BA, OBP, SLG and OPS (all in the 10th-12th range).   Not epically bad, just regular bad.   The starting pitching also was only regular bad, and better than its usual epically awful, posting a 5.05 ERA in September/October compared to 5.99 on the season.   But the bullpen really carried the team to the no. 1 draft pick, posting a 6.63 ERA for the month and blowing 10 of 17 save opportunities.   Think about that -- 17 save opportunities in one month is a lot!   But the pen blew more than half of them.   The pen was epically bad this season, and even more horrible in September/October.   Finally, the defense was sort of middling in the final month, both by standard and advanced metrics.   It's interesting that on the year, the O's allowed the fewest unearned runs of any team in the league, and the 3rd fewest errors, and yet, Rdrs had them at -46 runs, Rtot said -30, and OAA said -16.    All in all, there's a ton of work to do in all areas for 2022.   The pitching in particular just has to get better.   And I think it will, because it pretty much cannot get worse, either for the starters (5.99 ERA for the year while covering only 4.54 IP per start) or the bullpen (5.70 ERA and a 48% save rate).    But how much better is the key to how significantly our team will improve in 2021.
