Pardon me but what a dumbass move. And I'm not really one to get uppity over roster management.

If his achilles is bothering him, DL him and give him the proper time to get it squared away and healthy, once and for all.

But sending him down over Montanez? Just stupid.

I think they want him to play every day to get out of this funk. It's not going to help him sitting on the bench. Montanez is nothing more than than a bench guy.

I imagine Scott will get the majority of the time in left although Patterson should allow Jones to sit more against tough righties... then again, Jones can't hit lefties this year so who knows?

I really don't like sending Reimold down.

The ONLY reason I can think of for him to be sent down is that they want him getting playing time EVERY DAY and that they are planning to use Patterson as the starter for the next week or more.

Scott is just as bad as Nolan. At least Nolan has a future. Let him play every day up here and work it out.

I'm reading between the lines with DT's confidence issues remark. I think besides working on his fielding, this business with the pregnent ex may truly be a big distraction.

Why not play him every day in Baltimore? Why would you put Scott every day in LF and not Reimold?

I think Reimold showed last year that he's a pretty consistent hitter. At least his approach at the plate is consistent. Scott is what he is...extreme highs, extreme lows. And Reimold still stands to be part of the long term solution here...Scott, not so much.

Would it be entirely too much to ask to give ONE OF THEM A FIRST BASEMANS GLOVE and tell them to go out there and it's sink or swim from a defensive perspective? By most accounts this spring, Scott didn't look awful there.

Reimold, as pointed out in another thread, has gotten a bit better over a recent stretch. Montanez has been horrid.

If they want to let him play everyday, than let him play everyday as an Oriole. What the hell does it matter at this point. We're 9-24. Let him play everyday and have the comfort of playing everyday, and with time he will return to the 09 Reimold that everyone really enjoyed watching play.

Sorry, but I don't get all the "this is stupid," angst-driven rhetoric. Nolan, plain and simple, sucks right now. I think LM is bad, too, so I'm not sure how they chose one over the other. But I'm not crying witch right now.

Let him hit the ball and earn his way back to the majors.

And I hope he's back soon.

    • I think the development system was his biggest downfall. Though the blacklisting from S. Korea isn't great either.  They could draft well, but not develop well as evidence by some of his draft prospects thriving in the new Orioles environment.  On a side note, I blame Angelos and company more than DD for the delay (and ultimately the poor execution) in selling off the core of the 2012-2016 teams. I think its better practice to bring in a new GM to down the dismantling. As unbias as someone tries to be, its got to be harder for the GM that built the team to dismantle it without some level of bias. 
    • I don't think anyone will disagree with any of that, but I think Wildcard was saying that a hopefully contending team still has players from the Duquette regime contributing five years later. I'm going to pick Elias 1000 times in 1000 for the way baseball is played now with technology, but Duqutte did do several good things and did build a team that had a core run. Obviously Buck gets some credit here too for that run, but before the Toronto thing happened that sucked most of Duquette's power away, They were a great duo when it came to putting a winning major league team on the field. The drafting was pretty solid behind Rajsich but the development was clearly behind the times and that hurt the organization. Elias is heads and shoulders above anything Duquette installed development wise.
    • Fangraphs with a belated look at the Irvin trade: “As Eric pointed out to me, Hernaiz was going to have a tough time climbing the hitter-heavy Baltimore system, so he was a luxury there. In that sense, this trade is a good reallocation of resources. Baltimore is competing in a brutal division at the major league level and could use pitching help. Oakland is competing for the first pick in the draft and is in dire need of a farm system overhaul. I don’t think this trade is going to swing the AL East or West anytime soon, but I do think it’s a good bit of business by two rational teams with differing objectives.” https://blogs.fangraphs.com/cole-comfort-orioles-bolster-rotation-in-trade-with-oakland/ There’s some breakdown of Irvin’s stuff in the article, nothing earth-shattering.   
    • Hopefully you know that Dan Duquette had nothing to do with the Chris Davis signing, right? Peter Angelos made that signing at the behest of Buck Showalter.
    • It's apparent that the O's are acquiring pitching that's closer to ready while developing hitting. It's not like they don't have young pitchers too, but they must see more risk there. Just look at the staff now. It's mostly guys who had already worked their way through some of the developmental steps. The O's identify guys they think they can help and go get them, mostly for very cheap.  That's not a mistake or an oversight. It's their model based strategy. Now you may think you have a better model, but I kind of doubt it. We also haven't seen this plan fully mature yet. The international guys aren't ready and many of the draft picks are just starting to get to the higher levels. Heck, we've just now started to implement trading prospect bats for pitching and we got 4 years control of an average starter for our 6th-7th best SS prospect.    This isn't exhaustive, but here's a lot of our top guys and how they were acquired. I'd say we have a decent staff even before maturation of the system and/or making many hitting prospect for pitcher trades. Gibson, Voth, Watkins, Baker, Bautista, Wells, Givens, Krehbiel  - Signed or claimed Bradish, Kremer, Zimmermann, Tate, Irvin, Perez, Vespi - Via Trade Hall, Rodriguez, Means, Baumann, Akin - Homegrown  
    • Honestly I don’t know why anyone would want to buy a minority interest in the Orioles at this stage.  That would be such an exercise in frustration.  I guess it could be a decent investment financially because franchise values only go up, but I wouldn’t want to tie up my money in any enterprise controlled by the Angelos family.
