Jays DFA Reimold

Just to post the facts here: Nolan hit .212/.283/.404 in his time with the Jays with 2 HR and 9 RBI in 60 PA. In that same period, Young hit .312/.354/.506 with 3 HR and 12 RBI in 82 PA for us. And, unlike Reimold, Young was available every day since July 7 (the date of Reimold's first game), whereas Reimold spent almost 3 weeks on the DL. I still think Reimold can hit when he's healthy, but I think the results justify the Orioles' decision to stick with Young.

That doesn't even taking into account how terrible a fielder Reimold is. I don't know why we kept him as long as we did. I am glad he is gone. All these guys that people regret the club letting go get cut by other clubs Roberts, Reynolds, Jim Johnson and now Reimold. I celebrated every time one of those guys left. Why would we want them back?

I still don't want Delmon on the team.

For non-baseball reasons.

All there is the altercation while drunk a couple of years ago? If that is what you are talking about you must not want just about every Raven player off the team.

Well, there was that throwing a bat at an umpire in 2006. [video=youtube_share;wCX_XlRYYDo]

Listen to the announcer.. "Darnell McDonald and BJ Upton are on the bases". Then "oh that's a bad move by Delmon Young." Understatement.

Then there was the drunken assault and anti-Semitic tirade outside a NY hotel in 2012.... I can certainly understand the sentiment against Delmon.

D-Backs claimed him.

Yeah he said non-baseball reasons so I assume the bat thing was considered a baseball thing.

Like seeing the video of it as I had never seen it before. Seems like he has had anger management issues in the past. Thankfully they seem to be not occurring this year.

As for Reimold I am glad the Diamondbacks claimed him as that means we dont' have to hear any more posts of people wanting him on the O's.

Interesting. Best of luck to him.

    • Absolutely not! If we are giving up Basallo, it better be for a guy like Miller who has 5 and 1/2 seasons of control left (after deadline) AND is elite at our one area of weakness. He also gives us the best back end for several seasons beyond when paired with Bautista (pending health). Crochet does little for us this year. He does give us maybe a slight improvement over our 2/3 starter in the playoffs. But does he have those many innings in him? People keep talking about the injury risk with Miller but how is Crochet any different? AND he does not solve our biggest weakness in ‘24 (shutdown reliever at the end of games). Yes it is possible that you may be able to slot him there, but he has never done it before.
    • This extra wild card team has messed up the deadline. There are 5 teams that will be sellers. 25 teams within 3.5 games of the playoffs.
    • I don’t get idea that there is no reason to look for a starter and if reports are true, the Os clearly don’t believe it either. Starter is, without question, a need for next year. You have no idea if Bradish will hold up all season. Injuries happen. Will Suarez remain good? The goal should be to get this team as good as possible for October and 2025.  
    • I would look to include Kremer in a deal, which likely would be appealing to the team trading for him.  Cheap, solid starter. Established MLers are almost always involved in bigger trades.
    • Come now…I didn’t say I disagreed with the decision, you know. 
    • Wouldn’t even consider it. Crochet has a great arm but we have zero idea how he will handle the workload he will have this year, which far exceeds anything he has ever done. On top of that, we don’t know how the major increase in innings will effect him in 2025. I wouldn’t feel comfortable trading for him until after 2025.     Great talent though, no doubt.  May be the new Chris Sale.
    • Nope. I see no reason why we need a SP. We have 7 rotation options. Heck, maybe 8 with McDermott. You only really need 3 SP for the playoffs. If we do need a SP for some reason it would literally just be a #4 type to get us through the regular season. The price on that might be a DSL flier or cash. Back end bullpen arm, vet RH bat, middle reliever.
