I still don't want Delmon on the team.

For non-baseball reasons.

Roch is making a case for him as the everyday starting LF next year.

He did say, that this year in ST, when he was in the clubhouse, he said it was clearly evident that when he said he was in the best shape of his life, he truly came to camp beefed and ready to play ball.

CoC, I think it's pretty clear by the way he has handled himself this year, that past incident was a one time thing and that's not who he is.

I would still prefer him to not be on the team.

He seems like a nice guy and gets along with his teammates, I can't imagine he's bad for the clubhouse, or maybe I'm missing something.

If was bad for the clubhouse or his teammates, DD would not have put him on the roster.

DD and Buck are of like mind, you get more out of your current players, if the clubhouse is not a keg of TNT waiting to happen.

I have no problem with Delmon but has anyone else noticed that he's gotten a little chunkier as the season has progressed?

He's put on weight at an astounding rate. He looks like old Delmon Young now, not the skinny version from spring training. It hasn't affected his hitting obviously but I gotta imagine he's lost a step on the bases and in the outfield.

We have space on the 40 man right? And we can send him to AAA for a while and keep him in the organization' date=' right? Why not?[/quote']

We do not have space on the 40 man roster at the moment, but we can make space easily. He is out of options which is why he was exposed to waivers in the first place. If no one claims Reimold, he will become a minor league free agent this off-season.

The Blue Jays will probably try to find a trade partner in the next few days but will probably try to outright him before rosters expand on September 1st.

With Phelps DFA, there are now 39 on the 40-man roster. When Manny goes on the 60-day DL there will be 38. But Buck has said that they will add at least one current minor leaguer to the 40-man roster in September; maybe two.

I doubt anyone trades for Nolan. It's likely he will pass through waivers. Maybe the BJ will outright him, but he can refuse the assignment. Maybe he decides he likes home cooking and signs a minor league deal with the O's. Or, maybe he doesn't sign with anyone and plays winter ball to establish some value.

I would have no problem signing him and giving him a shot in spring training next season, but he is getting a little long in the tooth.

Yup. Definitely chunkier. I bet Buck has noticed as well. We'll see if he's one of Buck's guys this offseason. He's been great for us this year!

    • No, I’m just saying Bradish can pitch one way or another.  You don’t throw out Suarez, Irvin and Povich.  at the very least, you get Bradish one of the starts.
    • As an Orioles fan I would rather that they not play on Sunday night.  Plus I really do not like the announcing crew, other than Eduardo Perez. As a fan of the sport having the Yankees-Red Sox as the spotlight game when you have two top five teams playing in a sold-out stadium the same day is a symptom of a longer-term problem MLB can’t seem to fix.  ESPN is probably right that they’d get better ratings but it is because the sport has become too regionalized with a few national brands (Yankees, Dodgers, Red Sox, maybe Cubs, maybe Phils, maybe Braves).  The sport’s inability to market its biggest stars nationally (especially those that don’t play for the above teams) is maddening.     Okay, I’m done venting for now.
    • Yeah no reason to get a starter. Kremer will be back soon and Suarez and Irvin have provided a lot of innings we did not expect. We need a late inning leverage guy and probably another middle relief pitcher, similar to getting Webb last year. I don't think we need to break the bank either. Everyone tosses around trading Kjerstad but we can get a late inning guy and not give up a top 25 prospect. We just a rental. Baustista will be back and we have a club option on Kimbrel if need be.
    • I'm curious for those wanting to trade for a starter: who are you kicking out?
    • would you?     https://bleacherreport.com/articles/10124411-white-sox-sp-garrett-crochets-top-landing-spots-amid-mlb-trade-rumors
    • I don’t think this matters. I think you get value where you can. The Rays have been willing trade partners in the past when it was clear they weren’t contending. Right now they are 4 games out of the last slot but have like 5 teams above them. Can they get it? Sure but it’s not that likely and in the past they’ve been realistic in their down type seasons.
