I'd love to get Pagan to play left but I think he'd cost too much.
Sign McLouth to a 1 year deal. Hope Reimold can stay healthy for 300 ABs.
Hold at 2b and see what shakes out. Maybe there's a scappy guy you can bring in to compete with Roberts, Dino, Flah.etc.
Pick up MRen's option and/or talk 3ish year deal. I think someone is going to make a terrible decision on a guy like LaRoche or Loney (like 3/50+) and it'll make 11m for MRen easier to swallow.
Maybe offer Saunders arb?
I think it would be a critical error to head into next season without adding a big bat.
I want the peace of God in my life.
To say these words is nothing.
But to mean these words is everything.
Nobody can mean these words and not be healed.
We just declined Reynold's option. We can either offer him abitration (about 9 mil) by Nov. 30th, try to resign him for cheaper, or let him walk.
I originally was imagining signing David Wright to play 3rd and sliding Machado to SS and Hardy to 2nd. Not sure how Hardy would take that. Apparently Wright will not hit FA this year tho so that squashes that scenario.
Resume baseball discussion
I can't see the O's letting Reynolds walk. Dude was incredible towards the end of the season and clutch at 1st base a number of times vs the Yanks.
I've gone back and forth on Hamilton. I've decided as GM of the Orioles to not to sign him. He's gonna be 32 in May. Not exactly his prime years coming up. I see a decline coming each year from now. Not worth paying $100 million for 6 years or whatever he's gonna be asking.
Bring McLouth back. Let Flaherty come back and play 2nd, I like the way he swings the bat. I'm also torn on Reynolds. He swings and misses SO much. But when he's hot he's hot. And he is better defensively at first than Davis. My instinct is to let him go.
I'd like to see a trade be made. Arrieta/Matusz and a couple other dudes for Billy Butler....something like that. Obviously I'm with everyone else in saying we need a quality high average high RBI bat.
Have you all fallen in love with McClouth just because he was the only one that hit in the playoffs? Or was it that foul ball that should have probably been a HR. I like McClouth too, but Hamilton is a HUGE upgrade.
