BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Among the 193 players with at least 400 plate appearances in 2012, Andino’s TAv ranked 192nd. Put it this way: If Andino were a blind date, you wouldn't bail on dinner, but you probably wouldn't bring him home to meet mom. Andino—acquired by Seattle for Trayvon Robinson—really is the bare minimum a team can accept as a starting player. He gets bonus points for flexibility, for doing things other guys can’t or won’t, and has the ability play all around the diamond. That has value, but in a bench role, as someone you can call on (or just call) in a pinch.
2012 Andino earned the trophy for Best Cesar Izturis Impression this season, starting the year as a reserve infielder but accumulating over 500 plate appearances of barely above-replacement-level performance. Filling at shortstop (for J.J. Hardy), second (for Brian Roberts), and third (post-Derrek Lee trade), Andino provided serviceable defense around the diamond and even played a little left field. He drove the nail into the Red Sox’s coffin on the season’s final day, but that’s about all he did, posting a .249 Tav (True Average) in line with the rest of his career. At 28, there isn't much more to project in Andino's bat with little power to speak of and poor on-base skills. He has some speed and won't kill the O's with his average, but those are the nicest things one could say about Andino's offense.
2011 Though he still can’t get on base to save his life, over the last few years, Andino has wrung a bit of power out of his swing at Triple-A. In September, he flashed that power in the majors, homering off of A.J. Burnett and CC Sabathia in consecutive games. Let’s hope he got the balls for his mantelpiece, because it was a fluke.
2010 The Orioles traded Hayden Penn for Andino at the end of spring training; Penn was out of options, so was Andino, and the Orioles were about to be stuck with using the aged Chris Gomez as their utility player (again). The thinking went that Andino would give them a competent fielding backup shortstop, albeit one who has never been even a league-average hitter in any league in which he's played in as a pro. Unfortunately, Cesar Izturis's appendectomy gave Andino extended regular playing time, and he did just as badly as you'd expect; Oriole management was "pleased" with his performance. Puh-leeze.
2009 Andino has been projected to be a all-field, no-hit infielder for years now. While he posted a solid line in Triple-A this year, it was also his third year at the level. Now, with Bonifacio and Amezaga in the fold and Andino out of options, something's going to have to give, but faith in his fielding might make him a worthwhile pickup for teams that have been going shortstopless in public.
2008 Andino's power boost last year is probably real, the result of his reaching physical maturity. That puts him in the picture should the Marlins tire of Hanley Ramirez's "defense " and move their star to the outfield. Andino has a strong defensive reputation built around an excellent arm and would be viable at shortstop even if he only managed a .250 EqA. He'll have a starting job somewhere in 2010.
2007 One morning, Robert Andino woke up from troubled dreams and found he had been transformed into a giant glove. In the field, he was a vacuum--there was no way a batted ball could sneak past him, no matter how hard it was hit. It was impossible, however, for him to hold a baseball bat. Even when he propped it up a bit with his webbing and turned his glove heel into a crude lever, he couldn`t generate any power and wound up slugging just .370 in Albuquerque. It was all very existential, sort of like question of whether or not he`ll ever hit enough to play regularly in the majors.
2006 He just can`t hit. Whatever the virtues of his glove, and they are not undisputed, he`s such a bad hitter that most lineups would be stretched to carry his bat, Rey Ordonez style. Andino didn`t hit in the AFL, didn`t hustle, and the Marlins noticed. Robbie, bubelah, they`ve traded everyone but you. You could have made the team just because you`re under contract. Instead, you make everyone think you`re a schmagegi. Was that wise?

DateQuestionAnswer
2012-11-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jason, even with Iwakuma's re-signing, it still feels like the M's still need to address the rotation. What are your thoughts on Jon Lester, and what kind of cost would be attached to trading for him?
(Tom from Seattle)
I see Seattle lying in the weeds on rotation upgrades. If they need the cash, they can try and trade Vargas and the $8 mil or so he'll get in arbitration and toss that at another arm, but the focus has to be offense and that is where most of the assets have to be spent this winter. It won't be a perfect team, even if they get the bats they want the most, but they'll be well on their way. Unrelated note, Seattle just traded Trayvon Robinson to Baltimore for Robert Andino. World Series. (Jason A. Churchill)
2009-06-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you think Robert Andino is ready to be a starter,or is back-up his peak?
(TGisriel from Baltimore)
He can be Cesar Izturis next year, a starter on a bad team that doesn't have many other options and has no need to spend money on the hole. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-05-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)Joe, no one has been able to answer this for me: When did defensive indifference become a scoring option in MLB? Why? Were so many meaningless late inning bases being swiped that MLB had to institute this rule in order to maintain the integrity of all stolen base records? It makes no sense to me, they stole the base, who determines whether the team cares or not? Stupid.
(Jay from Chicago)
You can't steal something that isn't possessed by someone else. If you're not being held, that's being given the base, not stealing it. It's a good scoring rule.

While I'm here, though...Adam Jones got a throwing error the other night for delivering a perfect throw to the cutoff man. Brian Roberts let it go through to second, and Robert Andino missed it. Jones got the error. There has to be some other way, because calling what Jones did an "error" is completely counterfactual. (Joe Sheehan)
