Anyone interested in signing Felix Pie to a AAA contract? Seems the kid is unsigned.

Cleveland had him signed to a minor league contract but he didnt make the big league club this spring and they let him go.

Seeing that no one is jumping to sign him is it worth it to ink him to a AA or AAA contract and see if someone can work with him to get his stroke back? Maybe get Terry Crowley to work with him exclusively?

As bad as he often looked he also flashed great tools once in a while.

I would have no problem at all with signing Pie to a AAA contract, and have him spend the season with the Tides from May through August. At that point, the worst-case scenario would be for us to bring him up in September when we expand the roster to 40 players, and use him strictly as a pinch-runner. IF he happens to be hitting really well down in AAA from May though August, perhaps we could increase our usage of him to a little bit more than a pinch-runner for the final month of the season.

And if we didn't want to bring him up at all after the roster was expanded to 40 players, we would just shake hands and thank him for the season that he gave us with the AAA-Tides, and he would thank us for the opportunity to at least play baseball at all this year.

I just saw Felix on the news today. The York Revolution unaffiliated ball club played Camden today and Felix plays for Camden.

It seems amazing he cant get one club to give him a shot on a AAA club. He is only 27.

Heck put him at Bowie and let him figure out his stroke again.

Yep, he plays for the Riversharks. I mentioned in another thread, that today, he went 3 for 5 with an RBI.

That should make Dipper's day. :thumbsup1: I have no doubt, he wants Pie back so badly, that he's willing to go to NJ to help him pack. ;)

    • Back when we signed Odor, my eyes rolled, probably a medically unsafe distance back into my skull. It took awhile, but he grew on me. Gritty, red-assing, bluster and pimping beyond his skill set, but he grudgingly grew on me. When he was flailing at the plate, and we started to show signs of life, I gnashed teeth, clutched pearls, and silently questioned Hyde's manhood. Recently, I realized Odor is not going to be here beyond this year, and decided to simply appreciate his contributions towards, lets face it, what was looking to be another very shit*y, tank-worthy team. I believe I'll eventually look upon him fondly, in what has been an amazing season, no matter how it turns out. So, a hat tip to you, Mr. Rougned Odor, for your contribution, and also, for snapping Joey Bats head back like a human pez dispenser. That was awesome.  
    • I've been very pleasantly surprised by Mountcastle's speed, and more recently, AR, even Vavra, and blown away by Gunnar..... So, yes, I am also surprised and a bit perplexed by Stowers foot speed (or perceived lack there of). Weirdly, it looks like Stowers is tentative, or something mental more than physical ability to move quickly. But just my impression, nothing to back it up.
    • He is also slower than he looks like he should be which is kind of the opposite of what I normally feel about guys that come up.  Mountcastle, Adley, and Gunnar all struck me as faster than I expected, e.g.
    • Agreed, just from a purely logistics perspective it wouldn't surprise me if both he and Gillaspie are optioned after tonight's game, and someone like Sulser and Vespi are brought up. 
    • He also really looked bad missing that tag at second tonight.   Sometimes it seems his head is not in the game. 
    • I don't see that changing either.  I think he is what he is at the plate.  He could still bring a lot of value in a reserve role. 
    • He can only come back up to replace an injured player. But he would qualify for post season play...
