Miley and Wilson shelled yesterday.  Britton rusty, but healthy.  The LHP  from Yanks, Bleier, good again.  Really like to see those high OBP numbers from Gentry and Rickard. Along with Kim and Smith we actually have some corner OF who can play this year.  But those punch and judy guys just not scratching DDs itch.  So lets run Pedro out there with his lead glove.

I can't believe we didn't resign Vance Worley with the rotation issues going into camp, knowing Tillman's shoulder was sore.

Yeah we are in trouble with rotation.  But I think Ynoa may surprise.  Sure seems like DD passed on Worley because he had no options left.  If Ynoa and Verrett flop, DD will look dopey.

Just looked it up.  Both he and Miranda have been somewhat lousy.  Carrying around 6 ERAs and Whips over 1.50.

Seth Smith has been a ghost this spring.  Bad hammy I guess.  Buck slobbering to get Pedro in RF so ole Seth better step on the gas the first 6 weeks of the year.

The guy flat out sucks. Should've been cut/ released over a year ago.

But no let's keep him around to make the team worse simply b/c they owe him money. Idiotic.

I almost never use ST production to assess a player. But with UJ, it's safe to do it.

You can't really judge their stats, but I saw Bud Norris in person early in ST in 2015 and I knew right off he was done, at least in Baltimore.

 

Ubaldo could be slacking on his mechanics again -- could be time to pull him aside for another session. Hopefully McDowell and Co. (Brady) can have the same success as Wallace did.

Hopefully McDowell can have a positive affect on UJ. But I wouldn't call UJ's results with Wallace "success". He's been a bust under Wallace's instruction. I'm not blaming Wallace for that, I just don't think UJ can be fixed. Those mechanics can not be consistently replicated.

Pitchers: I don't know if I would cut the guys you mentioned. I would reassign them to the minors. The reason being, the O's system has absolutely no arms to bring up, in an emergency. Those guys, for as terrible as they are, still represent the best the system has to offer.  

 

Infielders: I would keep Janish in Norfolk, cut the others you mentioned. As far as I know, the system has no back up for Hardy, when he eventually hits the DL again. Flaherty is a slightly better bat, but Janish's defense is so superior to RF, that I'd rather see the glove save runs from being scored, than to see RF not hit, and also not cover SS as well.

 

Outfieders: Santander is the one that's injured, not Tavarez (unless Tavarez is also injured). I would move Alvarez to Norfolk, then wait for him to opt out, and I'd keep Gentry. He's less reliable with the bat, but he's had a great ST, and has the potential to make a comeback. Plus he's a great glove, and can run the bases well. If his bat gets back on track, he's a complete player. If there's still too many players, Rickard to Norfolk. I'd like to see Tavarez stay with the org, if possible.
