I remember him homering off Tillman last September. I won't hold it against him.

When I first read his name....I thought, there is something about his name that bothers me, then I read this post....oh yea, that's it. :)

I agree it is another good depth signing and gives DD more options to work his roster magic.

I don't think it will at all. I think things have a way of working themselves out and Trayvon will likely be traded or be on our 25 man roster come Opening Day.

You're probably right, but I wonder if we could sneak him down to Norfolk as everyone is setting their rosters at the end of ST.

Duquette, who flew to the Dominican Republic earlier this week to check on players at the academy, sent the following text:

"Chris Dickerson adds OB capability and good defense at all three OF positions to our club."

Markakis

Jones

Reimold

McLouth

Robinson

Dickerson

Pearce

Avery

Hoes

Ford

Pridie

That's a lot of options.

I hate to be that guy, but I think Chris Dickerson is a better 4th OF than Nate McLouth.

If he is, that's pretty good for the Orioles especially after what McLouth did for us last year. These are the solid little acquisitions that adds deep depth going into spring training. It may end up meaning nothing or Dickerson may find a way to help the O's win a couple more games this year. Either way, it's solid signing especially since he was available for a minor league deal.

Yeah, and we really needed a LH option who has enough bat to cover the corners in case McLouth or Markakis goes down. Dickerson is a pretty big upgrade over Pridie (I also think Robinson won't be in the organization come opening day). I don't think the Orioles want Davis out there again.

It's almost at the point that there won't be enough playing time in Norfolk for everybody. I Imagine the O's want Hoes and Avery in there every day because they're still developing players, which means Dickerson is probably the RF - Leaving 1B/DH for Ishikawa, Jackson, Pearce, Ford, and Pridie. I think Ford and Pridie are really going to have to fight to not get pushed off the depth chart completely.

On the other hand, I don't know who our AAA infielders are outside of Flaherty, Valencia, and Navarro, and probably 1-2 of them will be on the ML roster. Who else do we have at 3B/SS/2B? Any chance that Hoes gets a look at 2B again?

    • I don’t think I’d put it this way.  The Mets have had a remarkably consistent year.  They’ve been above .500 every month (15-10 in Sept.).  They’ve played .600.+ baseball in every month but one (13-12 in June). They’ll end up between 98 and 104 wins.  That’s a great year.   The fact that Atlanta has nearly caught them is more a testament to Atlanta’s hot play than any sputtering by the Mets.    
    • Thanks Frobby for beating me to the punch, but yes, Chuck did Youmans work this year. He did it every single day througout the season. Amazing work. Thanks Chuck!
    • I have zero issues with Judge hitting his home run against the Orioles as long as it's in a loss. Walking him a bunch in an attempt to deny him is unsportsmanlike and petty and I can guarantee Hyde would have nothing to with that kind of stuff.
    • Good analysis, but of course in the real world it also depends who your alternatives are in COF or as DH.  Santander’s WAR couid go down but the team WAR could go up if you have a better defensive alternative who saves more on defense than you’d lose on offense by playing some other guy at DH. Just to look at this in a concrete way, are you better off with Santander in RF and Mancini at DH, or McKenna in RF and Santander at DH?  The fact that Santander individually loses some WAR by moving to DH is irrelevant.   
    • In his career, Judge has homered against us 35 times in 84 games (79 starts).   That’s more than .4 homers per game.   So yes, I’d say the odds favor him hitting one against us this weekend. I just want to beat the Yankees.   Anything that happens in an Orioles win is okay with me.   
    • Let the man hit.  Judge is a decent guy and the major league record is 73.  I don't consider Bonds' record a "real" record because of all the steroids he was on, but it's still the record.  Not sure what the insane level of hate for Judge is about.  I have no problem hating Yankees who are d-bags, but hate of random Yankee and hate of players like Roberts who went to the Yankees because no one else wanted him are over the edge. I think what I really hate are Yankee fans.
    • Is it really a big problem?    Walking guys is only rarely a good strategy.
