A 1 year deal with a player option? They must think Cisco is just about there.

 

The Baltimore Orioles have agreed to a one-year deal with free-agent catcher Welington Castillo, sources confirmed to ESPN's Eddie Matz on Wednesday.

Sources told ESPN that the $6 million deal is pending a physical and also features a $7 million player option for 2018.'

Suggs has signed. I've never been so happy to be wrong

They say the O's are in on Dyson, which could move Jones to RF

Seems like a worthwhile risk;  MW wouldn't have settled until Jan-Feb anyways, O's wanted to move on.

 

The drawback? Wieters had the 6th best Catcher's ERA on a pretty crap staff:

I like this move and contract.  It was time to move on from Matty and Boras.  Allocate those dollars elsewhere.  I think we get the same production from Castillo as would from Wieters so this is an absolute no brainer.  Yeah DD.  You moved on something before Xmas.

It's a shame we didn't trade MW at the deadline :) now we'll get nothing. Oh well, we all know Big Dan lacks foresight and vision.

We would have gotten next to nothing then. Wieters wasn't bringing much in trade. And you don't trade starters in the midst of a pennant race.

Next to nothing, eh?

An all-star catcher that is supposedly one of the best at his position?

I just find it surprising for an organization whose Farm System is barren, that Big Dan just didn't have the foresight or vision to explore a trade.

Detroit's farm system is largely barren. Why didn't they attempt to trade Ian Kinsler or J.D. Martinez? Toronto emptied its farm system out the past several years so why didn't they try and trade Bautista or Encarnacion, both of whom are now free agents?  Either team could have gotten a helluva lot more for those guys than the Orioles would have for Wieters.

 

Wouldn't it make more sense to keep "an all-star catcher who is supposedly one of the best at his position" in the fold if you're trying to win now (and in first place at the time)? How does trading him make you any better down the stretch? I don't know what is so surprising about the Orioles holding on to Wieters. That doesn't demonstrate a lack of vision; it's just baseball common sense.

Word around the Warehouse campfire, is that Sisco's bat is MLB ready, but his D needs some seasoning. It was only last season, when his scouting report said he couldn't hit lefty pitchers. I guess he had a great November. :huh:
