That is the O's to the Braves to the Reds to the D'Back.

So who gives him the best chance to play.  Playing behind Chris Davis, Freddy Freeman, Joey Votto or Pual Goldschmidt?

Paul is most likely to be injured.

Yep, saw this. If they claimed him at this point, he's staying on the major league roster, at least in the short term.

The trouble is, Walker hasn’t quite hit enough to push out an established big leaguer from a first base job. And he is new to the outfield, leaving it unclear just how he’ll fit on a National League roster. While Arizona had previously parted with a similarly hard-to-fit player in Peter O’Brien, the club now evidently felt there was roster space to spare.

Just wanted to drop in and say I love Big Paul Goldschmidt, one of many favorite non-Orioles.  Dude is stupid talented.

Walker is one of those marginal players you hate to lose because his talent and potential makes you think oh, if only we could give this guy the chance to hit 30 Trumbo-Bumbos some year, but he's part of a fraternity of those kinds of players and most of them are Wily Mo Pena or something.  Maybe some of them are good enough to become Jay Gibbons.  Most of them don't.  Sometimes they're Chris Davis.  Fact is he was blocked here and that's that.

When they are 6'4 they are Chris Davis. When they are 5'11 they are maybe Steve Pearce.
