BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-08-29 12:00:00 (link to chat)Seems like the only truly bad performances among Orioles this season have come from players covering for Machado (Lombardozzi, Flaherty) or relievers that weren't given much rope anyway (Stinson, Meek). Is this just good luck, or do Buck Showalter and Dan Duquette deserve a lot of credit for making sure they don't fritter away wins at the margins of the roster?
(Ryan from zona)
There's some good luck there, of course, but Duquette knows how to find useful pieces and Showalter knows how to use them. Good pair. (R.J. Anderson)
2014-03-27 13:00:00 (link to chat)Follow up on Gausman - has it officially been announced yet that he'll be sent to minors?
(Pete from MD)
I just Googled and the top result (from a few days ago) had this quote: "[Manager] Buck Showalter said the Orioles haven't decided on anything regarding where he'll start the year." (R.J. Anderson)
2011-04-12 13:00:00 (link to chat)Buck Showalter has commented recently on the number of third strike foul tips Matt Wieters has caught for a strikeout. He uses it as evidence that Wieters is a superior defensive catcher. Are you aware of any analysis of catchers and third strike foul tips? Does anyone even keep track of them? Are such plays included in ratings of catchers' defense?
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
Hasn't been analyzed or included in any catcher defense ratings, to my knowledge, but it's an interesting question, and one well worth looking into. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-12-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Speaking of the Orioles, is what we've seen this offseason part of a Grand Plan, or just a wild stab at .500? Forgive me if you've written about this recently.
(Christopher from Nashville)
As long as the years past have been a crawl towards an indefinite horizon, beyond which some unquantified respectability is supposed to be, I could see Buck Showalter getting this team into the range of 78-82 wins next year. I don't expect that's going to lead to a ticker-tape parade, and I don't know if there's a way to leverage this group into a real contender, but I'd take their late-season finish seriously. There's just too much talent on hand for them to not improve. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-10-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Two days without baseball? Try 18 years as a Pirates fan. Give me some words of hope on this boring day. Who would you have manage them and why?
(karp62 from upstate NY)
I think the Pirates could use someone in the Buck Showalter vein, and I'm not just saying this because the Orioles picked things up under his watch. The culture in Pittsburgh is, understandably, not one of winning, and I think they need a manager who can remind them that they need to play for their jobs every single day. I'm not sure who that person is, but that would be my goal. (Marc Normandin)
2010-10-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)How much value does a team like Pittsburgh or Toronto gain by hiring a big-name manager as opposed to a lesser name? Would the higher salary be more than made up for by the increased buzz, which would presumably improve ticket sales?
(Joe Torre from The Unemployment Line)
I think it does increase buzz but what it really does is increase credibility. The Orioles are a great case in point. When they hired Buck Showalter, the franchise was suddenly relevant again and the Orioles players I talked to a few weeks after the hiring all said the clubhouse atmosphere changed immediately and became much more professional. (John Perrotto)
2010-09-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Wieters has 1200 PA in the bigs that say he's a solid catcher but not a monster. That's worth a lot more than the what, 500 PA he had in the minors? There's just not that many catchers his size, and Baltimore hasn't shown much ability to actually grow and develop hitters.
(Toddles from San Francisco)
I'm hopeful Buck Showalter can have some positive influence in that regard, as getting young teams to do what they are meant to seems to be his specialty, but as you said, it's not looking positive yet. Youth is on his side for now though. (Marc Normandin)
2010-08-02 13:30:00 (link to chat)The O's didn't deal Luke Scott or J. Guthrie when their value might be at their highest. On the other hand, the two possess the qualities for which they would presumably seek in return -- power (Scott) and innings gobbler (Guthrie). Without knowing the tasty (or not so) they could have had in return, please comment on the logic of holding in this situation.
(Jay from Madison)
Perhaps in part to leave Buck Showalter with all of the club's better pieces still on the board, especially if there weren't any suitors making offers Andy MacPhail couldn't refuse. Change is inevitable, but giving time and direct experience with the players to a new skipper with as much experience as Showalter does in recasting a franchise doesn't seem like such a bad idea to me. If nobody was handing out primo goodies--and let's face it, if the best prospects moved at the deadline were Dan Hudson and Tim Collins, not many people were--standing pat with a pair of under-control veterans was defensible. (Christina Kahrl)
2010-07-22 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will Buck Showalter be: a) A key to an O's turnaround b) Lou Piniella in Tampa c) Employed by another team after the O's fiddle while Rome burns.
(Drungo from SoMd)
You know, I don't spend a lot of time worrying about manager hirings because it's so hard to predict the impact that a manager will have on a team. I am not saying I don't think managers can have a big influence on a team, I'm just saying it has to be the right combination of factors between the personalities, and that's not something you can really know in advance without very detailed knowledge about the situation. If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say the Orioles will slowly continue to improve over at least the next two years. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-07-29 16:30:00 (link to chat)Those wild and crazy interwebs are reporting that the O's have hired Buck Showalter to be their next victi... manager, and that he's being given lots of GM-like powers over rosters and the organization. Thoughts?
(Drungo from SoMd)
GM-like powers? I hadn't heard about this. I don't ever think managers to a good job evaluating that kind of stuff. The O's need to centralize their decision-making a little bit. MacPhail shouldn't be bossed around too much from above or below! (Matt Swartz)
2010-06-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)Orioles fan. Nobody in the majors is performing. Nobody in the minors is performing. I know they won't always be this bad, but realistically, when is the earliest they could contend? Last year pundits thought it was 2011/2012, but now that seems ridiculous. Will I have to wait until a salary cap is implemented or Angelos sells the team?
(Dan from Maryland)
This has been pretty much a lost year, as just about all of the key youngsters on whom the Orioles' future hinges has taken a step backwards - Adam Jones, Matt Wieters, Brian Matusz, Chris Tillman... In retrospect, I think the team waited too long to pull the plug on Dave Trembley, because the situation has just festered, but keep in mind the Orioles' poor standing also has to do with the fact that the other four teams in the division are especially strong; the O's are 8-25 (.242) against them, which is worse than the 1962 Mets' pace.

In terms of contention, I think a lot depends upon whom they hire as a manager. Buck Showalter might be able to get them playing respectable baseball by sometime next year, but contention will take some front office smarts, and I'm not sure the guy who signed Garrett Atkins need apply. (Jay Jaffe)
