Why doesn't Trembley play Salazar instead of Mora?
 
I was watching the O's game and saw Mora ground into a DP wasting a lead-off hit early in the game. Mora has struggled all season and Salazar has hit well in limited play so why not start him?

Yeah I guess an upcoming trade would be a good reason not to play somebody!

And even before he was traded, the guy just flat out, cannot field any position well enough to be a major league ball player. The closest he could come is first, but even that is a bad idea. He's a pinch hitter/DH at best and he would have been the 2nd or 3rd best option at DH for the O's. The Salazar trade was a good deal because Salazar was a worse fielding version of Wigginton/Huff. Neither are great fielders, but they're both leaps and bounds ahead of Salazar.

I agree that the trade was good, they definitely need more pitching and I heard Meredith might come up tonight, but Mora has been soft at the plate and mediocre in the field. It has only been four games, but since the break he has been hitting much better.

like jdlea said, i dont think there is position defensively that oscar could play to even a mediocre level. i was really hoping we would keep him on just b/c he seems to be clutch getting hits coming off the bench.

above average bat, below average glove, a chubby man so he isnt the swiftest either. really all he can do is DH. the interesting thing is that the NL padres snagged him up. they must think he could plug in at catcher but i dont like the idea of putting him in as a catcher just to get his bat in the lineup. a cather is so fundamental to the game and while they dont call entire games like they used to they still have to know the pitchers, batters and quarterback the D.

im not sold on meredith. lived in SD for awhile and got to see him pitch a ton, he can go thru nice stretches of pitching, was surprised to hear his era is in the mid 4 range.

guess we do need bullpen depth with walker gone. hopefully baez will be gone next year, decent but not worth the money we threw at em (which was done in haste after we had an atrocious down right disgusting cost us a ton of games bullpen a few years ago).

going on tues the 28th to get my reimold tshirt.

go skins!!
