This team needs a purge


Three Run Homer

Recommended Posts

The O's have scored 3 runs or less in 12 of 16 games this month. Not surprisingly they are 2-10 in those games.

Nolan Reimold has a .376 OPS for the month. Travis Snider is at .384. Chris Parmelee is at .396. None of them have a track record of success or even a sustained hot streak this season that would justify any confidence that they are going to be productive hitters going forward.

Why not dump all three of them and give some guys at Norfolk a chance? Call up Clevenger and let him play some 1B. Let's see what Urrutia and Alvarez can do.

You have a point. But it's not going to happen. O's management isn't going to eat up all that payroll. Because if they did, they would have to admit how royally they screwed up for the 2015 season.

Reimold and Parmelee are making peanuts.

Snider isn't breaking the bank either.

It's not the bank so much - but the fact that poor decisions were made - we're seeing the results. As a matter of fact two - (yes two) plus pitching prospects where given up for Snider.

On the plus side, it doesn't seem like a pitching prospect amounts to much unless/until the Orioles trade them.

Looking at the years both Cruz and Miller are having. Kind of make me wonder "What if?".

What would Miller really have done for this team? We are 39-0 when leading after 7 innings. If we had any extra $9 mm to spend, I'd much rather have spent it on something other than a relief pitcher.

Shhhh, not allowed to complain around here about the El Cheapo offseason the O's slept through.
This is a ridiculous statement to make, 120 million range, is not el cheapo.

They never slept through anything. They had a 125 million dollar budget. So you can rosterbate all you want. Bring it in at 120 and add no longer term albatross and you can complain all you like.

I don't think Reimold has gotten a fair shake in the deal. Maybe he is not healthy enough to play 5 days a week or whatever but he was hitting .281 and OPSing over .900 on June 25th and since then he has had 19 at bats. You can not stay sharp when getting less then an at bat a day. Buck went to this platoon thing and it seems to have made things worse. Snider is god awful and hits nothing hard. Parmalee was hot early but haas cooled off yet Reimold has still not got any more time.
