The Orioles should trade for Ben Revere

Not what I was getting at. He's only been up 2 years. We give schoop a pass when it comes to the bat, but we don't give it to revere. That's dumb

Revere is 28.

Schoop is 24.

I promise you I won't be giving Schoop a pass in four years.

Revere

2010 (22) - .412 OPS (30 PA)

2011 (23) - .619 OPS (481 PA)

2012 (24) - .675 OPS (553 PA)

2013 (25) - .691 OPS (315 PA)

2014 (26) - .686 OPS (626 PA)

2015 (27) - .719 OPS (634 PA)

Schoop

2013 (21) - .833 OPS (15 PA)

2014 (22) - .598 OPS (481 PA)

2015 (23) - .788 OPS (321 PA)

Look at their respective 2015s. Schoop had an OPS 60 points higher in his age-23 season vs. Revere's career high in his age-27 season. It was his second significant season vs. Revere's fifth. Using Schoop as some sort of comparable for what chances people are giving or not giving to Revere is misguided.

Funny enough, they actually have identical career OPS's of .677. The difference is that Schoop is trending upward headed into his age-24 season and has 817 career PA, while Revere has been on a plateau for the most part headed into his age-28 season and has 2,660 career PA (more than 3x that of Schoop).

It's only dumb if you have some reason to totally discount four prime years of development. And the casual observation/scouting reports/stats that show Schoop with more power in his index finger than Revere does in his whole body. When Revere was Schoop's age he had an .042 (!) ISO, and 14 extra base hits in 482 PAs. Schoops' ISO at 23 was almost identical to Adam Jones' at 29.

Gives me even more reason to love schoop more than I do

    • Matt Chapman to Giants 3 years 54 million.  Opt out after each season.  
    • Mountcastle was 10th in the AL in OPS in the 2nd half. That was post vertigo. With the WALL as a RHH. Only Ohtani, Casas, Seager, Tucker, Diaz, Witt, Rodriguez, Bregman, and Devers, had a higher 2nd half OPS. Pretty good company. 
    • On Draftkings, Kjerstad is the 9th favorite for AL ROY at +2200 Cowser is the 14th favorite for AL ROY at +3500
    • Funny, because I would say waiving other CF AAAA depth would mean that there is no reason to keep another backup CF around because McKenna is that guy. I also think Daniel Johnson must look good enough in camp to get rid of Burdick/Hilliard. It’s also interesting that we’ve only lost 4 players off waivers this offseason. Two of those were CF options. I don’t think the world of McKenna, but he’s a good bench option as being RH to a LH Mullins. 
    • I’ve arrived in Sarasota and will wear my Eddie Murray shirt to tomorrow’s game! Will save the Jones Jersey for Monday. So excited to be here!
    • LABR's AL only room tonight guessed confidence Ryan O'Hearn's playing time is secure over these two. An authentic Lowenstein is useful and the young DH/OF guys would be challenged early to outplay it. But if you feel like it was lightning in a bottle and even Mountcastle as a 1st round pick you happen to have but don't really like is someone you want to invest more in, then.... Only O'Hearn really stands in the way of 1B Mountcastle, DH Kjerstad (or Cowser) playing near enough to everyday.     Mountcastle should be getting towards those 10000 hours of practice to be really good at 1B defense, right? I wouldn't be shocked if a couple years back Elias could send mischievous texts to the Padres like, "we know you have to cut Jorge Mateo, and we're just waiting", and now the circle completes and Colorado or Chicago get to say "we know you have to cut Ryan O'Hearn and Ramon Urias, and we're just waiting (and no they can't be small pieces in your Dylan Cease bid)." Before Santander departs, the path is really more through the first basemen.    DL Hall being in the first big deal Elias actually closed hints to me Mountcastle could be next.    Mountcastle trade value in this slow market is constrained by JD Martinez or Brandon Belt hanging around wondering if they'll get jobs.     Belt may end up playing for less than the 1/4 Mountcastle will command in Arb1 this year.    Carlos Santana made it to ~$5M, a number Arb2 Mountcastle probably blows past for 2025 with a decent season. An early Mountcastle trade and O'Hearn fade could open a path for 1B Santander, RF Cowser, DH Kjerstad even (or however those 3 best defend those positions, probably something different every day based on the arms, bats, ballpark and weather that day. I still have hopes Mountcastle becomes a more significant contributor, but while we wait out Mayo and Basallo, Elias' most "My Guys" lineup in early 2024 might be like: SS Gunnar, C Adley, 1B Santander, LF Hays, DH Kjerstad, CF Mullins, 3B Westburg, RF Cowser, 2B Holliday
    • Surpised they still haven't started Westburg at 2B once yet this spring training after 8 games. He projects as the starting 2nd basemen on opening day.
