Question about Garcia

Recommended Posts

This may sound crazy, but-

before putting him on disabled list, could we have ?

1.offered him back to Red Sox, with everyone knowing that he has tendonitis,

2.perhaps have gotten him through waivers, etc, since he is hurt and no one would keep him on 25 man roster,

3. and then sent him down if the Red Sox declined.

1. Yes, but we wouldn't do that. Dan obviously likes him.

2. He wouldn't have cleared waivers.

3. The Red Sox would never decline to take him back.

Good question though.

2 things on Garcia:

1. Palmer the other night said the amount of time he has to be on the roster excludes September, meaning September doesn't count towards the time he has to be on the roster. I believe this is incorrect, but I am sure others heard this so wanted to clarify to be 100% sure.

2. Britt was just on MASN and said the Orioles are going to have a very hard time keeping Garcia. It sounded to me like she thinks he will be offered back at some point. Just wanted to relay.

I believe Palmer is wrong on that but I thought the same before. If the Os can't keep Garcia, he will get claimed before he makes it to Boston. Orioles have already done so much of the hard work in keeping him.

Palmer is wrong.

There is nothing that says outright that September counts, but there is also nothing that says it doesn't count.

Here is a Baseball America Q&A that clearly indicates that September days count.

I was wondering how many others heard that the other night. Thanks for clarifying. Maybe I'll shoot Roch a note to confirm 110%.

On (1) perhaps he is misunderstanding or misspoke regarding what others have Sid about September not being an issue because of roster expansion? Just a thought.

    • Back when we signed Odor, my eyes rolled, probably a medically unsafe distance back into my skull. It took awhile, but he grew on me. Gritty, red-assing, bluster and pimping beyond his skill set, but he grudgingly grew on me. When he was flailing at the plate, and we started to show signs of life, I gnashed teeth, clutched pearls, and silently questioned Hyde's manhood. Recently, I realized Odor is not going to be here beyond this year, and decided to simply appreciate his contributions towards, lets face it, what was looking to be another very shit*y, tank-worthy team. I believe I'll eventually look upon him fondly, in what has been an amazing season, no matter how it turns out. So, a hat tip to you, Mr. Rougned Odor, for your contribution, and also, for snapping Joey Bats head back like a human pez dispenser. That was awesome.  
    • I've been very pleasantly surprised by Mountcastle's speed, and more recently, AR, even Vavra, and blown away by Gunnar..... So, yes, I am also surprised and a bit perplexed by Stowers foot speed (or perceived lack there of). Weirdly, it looks like Stowers is tentative, or something mental more than physical ability to move quickly. But just my impression, nothing to back it up.
    • He is also slower than he looks like he should be which is kind of the opposite of what I normally feel about guys that come up.  Mountcastle, Adley, and Gunnar all struck me as faster than I expected, e.g.
    • Agreed, just from a purely logistics perspective it wouldn't surprise me if both he and Gillaspie are optioned after tonight's game, and someone like Sulser and Vespi are brought up. 
    • He also really looked bad missing that tag at second tonight.   Sometimes it seems his head is not in the game. 
    • I don't see that changing either.  I think he is what he is at the plate.  He could still bring a lot of value in a reserve role. 
    • He can only come back up to replace an injured player. But he would qualify for post season play...
