Denard Span


Todd-O

Recommended Posts

I feel like our team has one too many holes with with LF, 3rd, and 1st all in flux. Davis has been okay at 1st.... Just ok... And I would be ok with Davis playing out the year there. But defense at 3rd is ... Well... I won't waste time on that... And the injury (potentially nasty injury) to NR in LF leaves two big question marks for us.

The Twins stink. I wonder what it would take to pry Denard Span from them. He flashes some nice leather in the OF... Could play in LF but easily move to CF to give Jonsey a night off. He's not killing the ball this year (nor last) but he's a decent hitter who has shown some potential. Seems like a guy that we could target without giving up THAT much....

With Betemit, Hall, Avery and sometime in the future Reimold, I am less worried about left and more worried about 3B and SP. The starters are now 9th in the AL in ERA. Here's hoping the Britton can help out in June. Someone that could help with a higher OBP would also be welcome.

I guess my point is Reimold might not come back... I see no everyday LF in the names you listed especially since we need WB at 3rd and 1st. You could just as easily throw some SP names in there... Pinero and Britton.

We have have holes in the field and SP, yes. I would be upset to see the O's look at Span. Perhaps they could even work a Pavano/Span trade.

I like the idea of trading for span. Good range, speed on the basepaths and he fills the #1 hole in the lineup better than anyone on our team. Idk what it would take to get him though. Maybe someone simililar to him but younger. Avery and cash for span? I'm just throwing a guess out there.

I am very weary about Reimold as well. I don't think this is an injury that is just going to go away in 2 weeks. I would be surprised if he plays a month consecutively at all this year.

Awful trade by Washington.

They wanted an upgrade in the OF and a leadoff hitter. They went out and addressed a need. They have Strasburgh, Zimmerman, and Gonzalez already in the rotation, and have shown they aren't scared to spend money. So, they can sign a SP. And they have pitching depth, so they traded a strength, for a need.

    • Wake me up when it happens. I haven’t seen anything yet. I guess this guy had no plans at all when he bought the team. Typical. Just another arrogant billionaire. This is another reason the fans should own the team. I can see tons of things this team could be doing better. I do believe though Mike Elias is fantastic. I’ve heard other people worry that he might leave the team and I was horrified when he mentioned the lift off and then the Angelos’s completely pulled the plug on him and made him look like a fool. I thought he was gonna quit and join another team.   and I absolutely am not the only person who thought that. It was mentioned here and on Camden chat and all the oriole chat rooms on Facebook and everywhere else. You can tell I’m a big fan of the Orioles.     Heck, lots of people were saying that too. Not just me. I’ll bet there other threads here on the same subject.
    • I understand your disdain for the Angelos ownership.  I'm hesitant to paint Rubenstein with the same brush. He's doing and saying things that are as diametrically opposed to the old regime as I can possible imagine 
    • I can’t believe y’all are even engaging with this nonsense.   As to the merits of this move, it looks like an effort at marginal improvement.  Probably a nothingburger, but sometimes these moves surprise.    
    • I watched Cade pitch tonight on the Worcester broadcast.  The announcers were gushing over him.  He didn’t have his good stuff or command but battled.  He gave up 2 HR early and then settled in.  He was at 73 pitches in the 5th when Holliday booted a routine ball that cost him about ~10+ pitches or he’d likely have gone 7.  It was good to see him battle without his A stuff.  He still hasn’t given up more than 3 runs in a game on the season. 
    • It’s real easy just to forget 30 years of crap from that lousy billionaire and then another billionaire I don’t know anything about buys the team.   And you’re not suspicious at all?   Maybe that’s why our country sucks up the billionaires all the time.   I hate them. I wish they didn’t own the team. I wish the fans owned the team. Billionaires only think of profit. I always think about Cal Ripken and how great his career could’ve been if he wasn’t stuck stuck on the cheap Angelo’s teams where he never got to play in the World Series. So all we get to hear about is stupid Derek Jeter.
    • Can't you see what you're doing? You're blaming the current ownership for the cheap ass Angelos ownership.   
    • Stop saying I’m going to cry about anything. It’s rude and telling
