BRob meeting with reporters in Buck's office at Trop at 5:10

Roch at MASN is reporting this meeting with reporters pre-game at Trop....hmmm...though it is likely just a routine update, I had a bad premonition that BRob may just announce his retirement or, less dramatically, that he is not going to return this year at all.

I certainly hope that I am mistaken.

Roch:

Roberts told reporters that he's continuing to progress, but while he hasn't ruled out playing again this season, he conceded that it's unlikely to happen. He said it's "humbling" to realize how fragile his career and life are, but he also mentioned the glimmers of hope as he continues to do baseball activities in Sarasota.

There's really no good reason for BRob to even try to play again this season. At this point, even if BRob were feeling well enough to play, I'd rather give the playing time to Adams to get a sense of whether he can help us next year if BRob goes down again.

Fixed that for you.

I think the O's have a better shot at having a 20 game winner next season then Roberts has of playing over 140 games.

You gotta feel for the guy. From a text I got from the Sun -"it was tough looking teammates in the eyes today." I hope he doesn't feel at all responsible for the way this season turned out.

Hopefully he can get back to baseball down the road.

Yeah I hope he does not feel responsible for hitting himself in the head repeatedly with a bat.

I realize he may have done it to himself, but the guy has given everything he has to an organization that has never given him a chance to be a winner. This was not entirely self caused, it was also caused every time he hung in and was taken out turning a double play, every time he hustled down to first and dove in, every time he made a diving stop in the field.

If this is really as bad as it is, then a large part of the reason is because Robert's did nothing but hustle.

I like BRob, but the Orioles did pay him 10 mil per year for his troubles. Another team may have given him a large contract, but Baltimore did prove loyal to him.

That being said, I hope he is able to come back and be healthy next year, and in his retirement years.

    • Yea, teams that are you know, actively trying to win, can't churn the roster like the O's could. I don't expect the Yankees to score a bunch of these guys. And even the Yankees got Nestor (3.9 rWAR this season, which would be second on the O's)
    • What I want for Judge is for him to sign with a non AL East team.  I believe he has at least 5 more good/great years left.  I would rather he has those years with say the Mets.  I can't imagine the angst that Yankee fans would have if Judge is across town hitting 50+ HR.  The Yankees are not near as good w/o Judge and there's no clear replacement in free agency. 
    • That's the worst to me too.  The O's had a big lead in the season series, and I thought, well at least the O's are better than the Sox (record wise if not talent wise).  This collapse against the Sox has been frustrating and humbling. 
    • I know, there are a lot of forgettable pitchers too. But I would bet that we have gotten more out of waiver claims than just about any team in MLB the last 4 years, and I bet it isnt' close.
    • I think Elias made the right choice.  He had to know the O's had a 10% or less chance of making the playoffs.  Do you mortgage the future for that small chance?  Maybe in 2023, when the O's are real contenders, you do send away major talent in a trade.  Even if the O's kept Lopez and Mancini and made a minor addition, I still think they are coming up short.  The O's just have too big a talent gap between them and teams like Toronto, Tampa Bay and even Seattle.  Think about how much talent Dan traded away in 2012-2016.  The O's don't need to repeat the mistakes of the past.  I think Elias is going to concentrate on collecting talent more than trading it away.  I'm sure there will be trades in the future, but it will be for difference making talent at the right time. 
    • Not a particular game, but basically the first month and a half when Adley could have been called up sooner and possibly swung a couple of those. He'll end up getting that extra year of service time anyways for his ROY finish, so that production was just lost.
    • I was interested in Brantley too.  Is he not a capable OF anymore?
