Reimold is also hitting .300 following a strong spring, and Urrutia too. Honestly the Tides roster looks like a halfway decent MLB team.

Yeah man, they look good. Going down to check them out in June for a weekend trip. (if anyone has any cool tips on where to go-let me know)

I hope McFarland isn't hurt bad (he took a hard-hit line drive around the knee last night, stayed in, but that is going to be a biach today).

Parmalee had a decent shot at making this team before the additions if Snider and Cabrera.

Hey man-let's bury the hatchet. No hard feelings. Just baseball here. I apologize for any hostility sir.

Not onto your post. You know, I had never even heard of the guy but decent resume with Minnesota and he just looks so polished. You wonder where his weak spots are. I watched part of my 2nd or 3rd Norfolk game last night, so time will tell.

Fair enough. Fine by me.

I remember the board was interested in signing Parmalee to a minor league contract if he cleared waivers and then both things happened. Alex Hassan also looked like he had a chance to break with the team before he was DFAed and lost.

That was shortly after Cabrera arrived, and was shaking off rust. The fact that Cabrera is playing SS on a nightly basis in Hardy's absence speaks volumes about Buck's opinion of who is the better defender at SS. Now, who is better equipped to play the other positions when called upon to do so is a different question. Flaherty has a lot more experience at getting moved around the infield than Cabrera does.

It was pretty obvious for awhile quite frankly. As you said, Cabrera was being moved around a lot in ST so I think it just took awhile for Buck (and Cabrera) to get work and be comfortable back at SS. Cabrera clearly has the skills to be a ML starting shortsop. Flaherty is a guy that can fill in at SS for a short period.

As Hardy and Paredes get healthy, Flaherty will be sent down and the choice will be between Lough and Paredes, assuming everyone else is healthy.

I think David Lough has three weeks to show that he deserves to stay on the team over Paredes. We'll probably see him in the lineup a little more often in the next three weeks than you would typically expect for a backup outfielder, for evaluation purposes.

Yeah, Canada is pretty strict on their border crossings.

Wouldn't be the first MLB player to have run into this issue.

Was resisting Arrest charge only. Pled down to probation only. Of course they did detain Adam Jones because of his name. Or was it just to try to cheat their way to another Canadian victory?

Parmelee's swing is sweet. He is slow afoot. Considered a defensive liability in the outfield. They try to hide him at firstbase. (Coming from a fan of Parmelee)

Not sure, the pled down, this is what Roch wrote and just yesterday.

Following Everth Cabrera's arrest in September for suspicion of driving under the influence of marijuana and subsequent charge of resisting arrest, will the Orioles have trouble getting their infielder into Canada for the three-game series against the Blue Jays that begins on April 21? Will they need to make a roster move?

I think Flash stays, since he plays plus defense and Cabrera is not a plus defender.

Buck loves his defense.

I would send Flaherty down. He's got options, and while he's a + defender in nearly any of the infield positions, his bat is what it is. I think he bring him whenever (hopefully not) an infielder goes on the DL or gets traded.

Otherwise we lose both Lough and Paredes, at least as it stands right now. Who knows what DD has in mind.

He wont be the 4th OF on a Buck team as a defensive liability, that means, he would have to take Young's spot, and me mostly DH.

True, and DD is probably going to do what Buck wants.
