Bottom of the 40 man roster

A relevant discussion with the potential of us adding non roster guys to the 40 man. We're going to have to DFA some people probably. Here's mine,

40. Parker Bridwell

39. Logan Ondrusek

38. Christian Walker

37. Ashur Tolliver

36. Jayson Acquino

I can agree with that except Walker. Someone will take him.

They may all get claimed. That's just how I would rank them. You could make cases for Borbon, Janish, Gunkel to be added for the stretch run. Heck we even picked up Chris Dickerson in AA. Coincidence?

I think not. Gunkel might be added. Don't see why Janish might be added, we need to win games. I thin Mancini and Sisco could come up.

No need to bring up Sisco and Mancini to make a move for them to sit around. They are not better then anyone here and block a spot for 40 man over off season.

It happens. He has no future here. If it comes to it I'll watch him with Oakland at the end of the year.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK

7/23/2012: Aberdeen (NYP)

7/8/2013: Frederick (CAR)

4/21/2014: Bowie (EAS)

5/19/2014: Bowie (EAS)

7/26/2015: Norfolk (INT)

40. Lee to the 60 day DL

Then look at players that will not be with the O's next year and are not likely to contribute in rest of the year.

39. Ondrusek

38, Reimold when Rickard returns.

I don't like giving up on young players with options who have shown some talent.

Rickard is coming back?

I agree. Buck isn't giving up on Reimold though. Even though D.Alvarez should get his AB's. I don't see DD letting go of Ondrusek so fast. If we call up Ondrusek on the 1st he will still keep his option since he wasn't down for 20 days. Or so I think.

Bridwell will get sent down tomorrow. Hopefully for Drake. I like Drake. I would like to see him get more of a look, especially with us needing a 6th inning guy.

The point of this thread is that we're going to see moves happen on the 1st for callups. I have to think that Borbon at least gets added for a pinch runner. You could make cases for lots of players like Janish, Borbon, Mancini, Sisco, Andy Oliver, Gunkel, Beato, R.Rodriguez. Not saying all should come up, but you could make an argument for each one.

    • I guess we were watching a different outing. 
    • You try to sign long term Gunnar and GR.  Wait and see on the others. As for Adley?   I would not sign him to a long term contract.  I hate to say it because I love the guy but he just does not seem worth what he is going to ask for imo.
    • I am not worried about Means AS LONG AS HE IS HEALTHY.   Big if.  But he knows what he is doing getting ready for what him is his spring training.  If he does this his first 2 starts or so?    Then I worry.
    • I had never seen him in a live at bat until I saw him at his first spring training at bat this year.  And I mean his very first at bat.   He struck out swinging on like 4 pitches and being honest looked completely over matched.  I remember thinking....."hmmmm that seems odd for a guy so highly touted".   He just seemed like he had no idea what he was doing.   But then I never really saw another live at bat from him again all spring training and he ended up doing pretty well.  However every at bat I have seen of him since he got called up?  Looked like that first spring training at bat.  He looks like my wife trying to hit a major league fastball.  He has no idea what he is doing. I have never seen someone so good against minor league players and yet so bad against major league players.  Just a huge discrepancy.   Has to be psychological.   He looks completely intimidated. 
    • And who is this somebody other than Means or Flarerty that would help us in the playoffs. Also remember Bradish and Grod did not help us in the Playoffs. So I guess It was unwise to wait on those 2. Plus Bradish is hurt and uncertain going foward( a la Means) Yeah you piled on.
    • I will say I am surprised at how utterly useless/helpless JH looks after he got called up.   Not just surprised. Stunned is a better word. This is not an 7th round pick who struggled for years in the minors.   This is the #1 pick from 2 years ago who has dominated his entire life in the game of baseball. Yet he looks like a player in 8th grade playing against seniors in HS.  He can barely make any contact and even his fielding and throwing is very iffy. It is like he took up the game of baseball within the last year.   A complete novice.   This has to be mental because even the worst of the worst can make more contact than he is.  He is FLAILING.   No way that is all physical.    At this point you send him down.   No questions asked.   I was more than willing to let him get through this if he SHOWED ANY SIGNS of life.  But he just doesn't.   He looks pathetic.    Manny Machado he is not.   Send him down for at least 3 months.   Bring up Mayo.  Or anyone really.  It is better than what he is offering.
