Any chance we see Pearce and Snider in the lineup every day for a while?

I do think this revolving door of players isn't helping any of them. Buck is doing is best to try to get each guy enough at bats so they aren't rusty but then the question is just how productive can any of them be not getting consistent at bats? DeAza has hit well in Boston, is that because he has played more consistently? I want to be clear I agreed with letting him go. I look at Reimold and when they first called him up I figured he would play everyday but then right after Parmelee was called up and got hot taking at bats away. Other than Parmelee none of these players are getting consistent playing time.

I'd be fine with Alvarez playing everyday and Pearce/Parm platooning. Snider should be behind Lough in the OF depth chart. I don't see any upside with Snider.

It could be amusing, in a morbid sort of way, to see Alvarez playing everyday. Who do you DFA for him? Keep in mind the O's still have 26 guys on the 25 man roster.

This is the most appealing scenario for me. I was big on Snider too. However, I don't thinkBuck was ever that big on him. His slow start certainly didn't help him get more playing time. Of our current left field options, Pearce is the one who has the best chance of turning it around. Davis is okay in right field in our ballpark but I don't think I would stick him there when we go to Detroit.one or more of our outfielders is going to have to step up because don't see us getting help elsewhere.

Wouldn't mind seeing Pearce full time in LF. I'm okay with sticking with Parmelle at 1B and Davis in RF. Can't stand watching Snider swing through or late on every half way decent fastball. Another move I was okay with at the time but regret now.
I agree 100% with this one.

    • Yea, teams that are you know, actively trying to win, can't churn the roster like the O's could. I don't expect the Yankees to score a bunch of these guys. And even the Yankees got Nestor (3.9 rWAR this season, which would be second on the O's)
    • What I want for Judge is for him to sign with a non AL East team.  I believe he has at least 5 more good/great years left.  I would rather he has those years with say the Mets.  I can't imagine the angst that Yankee fans would have if Judge is across town hitting 50+ HR.  The Yankees are not near as good w/o Judge and there's no clear replacement in free agency. 
    • That's the worst to me too.  The O's had a big lead in the season series, and I thought, well at least the O's are better than the Sox (record wise if not talent wise).  This collapse against the Sox has been frustrating and humbling. 
    • I know, there are a lot of forgettable pitchers too. But I would bet that we have gotten more out of waiver claims than just about any team in MLB the last 4 years, and I bet it isnt' close.
    • I think Elias made the right choice.  He had to know the O's had a 10% or less chance of making the playoffs.  Do you mortgage the future for that small chance?  Maybe in 2023, when the O's are real contenders, you do send away major talent in a trade.  Even if the O's kept Lopez and Mancini and made a minor addition, I still think they are coming up short.  The O's just have too big a talent gap between them and teams like Toronto, Tampa Bay and even Seattle.  Think about how much talent Dan traded away in 2012-2016.  The O's don't need to repeat the mistakes of the past.  I think Elias is going to concentrate on collecting talent more than trading it away.  I'm sure there will be trades in the future, but it will be for difference making talent at the right time. 
    • Not a particular game, but basically the first month and a half when Adley could have been called up sooner and possibly swung a couple of those. He'll end up getting that extra year of service time anyways for his ROY finish, so that production was just lost.
    • I was interested in Brantley too.  Is he not a capable OF anymore?
