Why do we need both Ishikawa and Dickerson? Let Ishikawa go to make room for Roberts. Then you could DH BRob against RHP. If Reimold had an option there's no way they'd bring him up over keeping Valencia. The only reason he'd be up if at all is because they want to take one final look. If they bring up Henry I see no reason why they wouldn't play him in LF against LHP.

Thats why Ishikawa will be the first to go. If Roberts is only doing a 3-4 game stint at AAA, Ishikawa should just start packing

It doesn't make sense to send Flaherty down for Roberts if he has to stay there for 10 days. We'll need a replacement for Roberts before those 10 days are up.

I can't help but think of this scene when imagining another Roberts comeback.

FWIW, Reimold is 3-4 today. Perhaps knocking off some of those cobwebs.

Maybe, but it appears that the pitcher Richmond started today was throwing batting practice - 6 runs and 11 hits in just four innings. And before today, rusty or not, Nolan had 11K's in just 27 AB's against AA pitching. IMO, the Oriole's will have to see a lot more from him before calling him up. I believe they have a 30 day rehab period that started on June 18, so they have some time to make a decision. Right now, Reimold doesn't help the Orioles, and in fact, would be a negative factor in the lineup.

I do want to point out how nice it is to have choices of Dickerson, Reimold, Valencia, ishikawa, Pearce, Betemit, Casilla, Flaherty, and Roberts to round out the roster. Compare that to years past and you have to tip your cap to Duquette.

Yes, but a winning season makes us more attractive as well.

    • Live reaction everyone was upset by the lack of pitchers. My quick synopsis. Elias stuck to his guns by drafting all shortstop, catcher or center fielders as position players. I’m excited to see how they are able to do in terms of signing the high school kids. I think the draft will be defined by the success of Honeycutt and any of the high school position players. If I ranked the players I’m excited for it would be Honeycutt, George, Layton, O’Farral, Tess, Anderson, Overn. Looks like speed and defense were highly emphasized. Wonder if that has to do with the pitch timer rules.
    • I'd rather hold on to everybody and go with what we have. World Series be damned. Say goodbye to Santander, Urias and Mateo in the offseason, sign FA pitchers

    • Who are the FA pitchers available in the offseason? (other than Burnes)
    • Nothing can guarantee anything. But adding that kind of SP would give us the best chance possible (barring injury) this season and for the next few. Trading 2 of Holliday, Mayo, Basallo is not even on the table or a part of any realistic discussion/scenario. That kind of haul has not been landed for a pitcher and certainly not in this current era of MLB where prospects/cheap young players are more valuable than ever. Maybe Paul Skenes (currently) could land that kind of haul? Otherwise, the value proposition is not there to be considered. Skubal hasn’t even amassed a 10.0 career WAR and before this year didn’t even have a 5.0 WAR season. He simply not worth anything close to that, no matter what irrational fear or fandom suggests. 
    • Again there is nothing in terms of precedent in the last 10 years that suggests a pitcher of Skubal’s pedigree/career achievements with that amount of control left can bring back a Soto kind of haul. Look at Soto’s season average in terms of WAR and look at Skubal’s. The two are not similar in terms of value. Either Morosi is serving as a mouth piece for the Tigers in order to overstate Skubal’s value and drive up the price? Or he is serving his heart’s interest as a New Yorker and Yankee fan.
    • Doesn’t guarantee us a ring. That’s the risk. We could survive a package of Holliday, EBJ, McDermott, Norby, Stowers, and Willems.   Honestly, we could survive a lot but trading two of the big three would be just bidding against ourselves.
