YearComment
2007 The Phillies picked up the former Mr. Marlin to split time with David Dellucci in right after Shane Victorino was pressed into the center field job following a season-ending injry to Aaron Rowand in late August. While his batting average looks acceptable, without much in the way of walks or power he really didn`t help. Conine`s contract with the Orioles had a $2-million option for 2007 that vested when he reached 450 plate appearances, but Gillick avoided getting stuck with him by unloading him on the Reds. Conine will end up platooning with Scott Hatteberg at first when he isn`t spot-starting for one of the outfield regulars.
2006 For a guy drafted in the 57th round (1987) and left open to an expansion draft because Hal McRae didn`t think he was good enough to help the mighty Royals, it`s been a pretty good career: nearly 1,800 games, .288/.350/.449 averages, two rings--many a former 1st-round pick would be happy to claim that record. Now with the Orioles, he may get a chance to start for them in left field. O`s left fielders batted .239/.281/.381 last season, so as long as Conine doesn`t collapse completely, he`d be a very minor improvement.
2005 Durable, popular and hopelessly average, Conine keeps grinding out serviceable seasons deep into his 30s. It's a shame he's spent so much time at first base, because his bat has rarely been enough for the spot, and statistically, it's his worst defensive position. He's actually a good left fielder and an adequate third baseman. He'll likely be the Marlins' everyday first baseman in '05, when he'll slip well below average.
2003 For the most part, last season looked the same as his last four years, 2001 excepted. Look closer, though, and the defense is slipping, the strikeouts are going up, and the walks were never there to begin with. Heís a nice enough guy, but Father Time is catching up. The PECOTA numbers look about right: 2:1 odds that he declines, and with the chance of a big decline five times that of a big improvement.
2002 Conine was voted the Most Valuable Oriole by the Baltimore press, which is sort of like being voted the biggest rock star in Oglala by the local high school. However, the writers got this one right; Conine was worth 3.3 wins more than a replacement player, and that was tops on this team. He was the worst best player in the majors, nosing under Elmer Dessens in Cincinnati and Fred McGriff in Tampa Bay.
2001 Jeff Conineís role expanded last season when he was forced to be a third baseman, with Cal Ripken hurt and the parade of minor leaguers not cutting it. His performance against right-handers fell off considerably, from a steady EqA of.260ish to .235, but he made up for it by pounding left-handers for a .320 EqA. He doesnít have a recent history of large platoon splits, though if you go back to the early 1990s, youíll see he crushed lefties.
2000 Conine was the beneficiary of an almost unbelieveable hype job by the media covering the Orioles in 1999. Nobody seemed to notice that he was a below-average hitter--not just for a first baseman, but for an American Leaguer. He doesn't do a thing for the team except to supply Veteran Presence, not exactly in short supply here.
1999 From The Herk Robinson Primer: "If you make a mistake and allow a 26-year-old hitter to leave the organization, then watch that player blossom into stardom, the best way to correct your error is to re-acquire that player 5 years later, when he is 31 and his skills are in obvious decline." His return to Kansas City is eerily similar to the acquisition of Kevin McReynolds 6 years before: a remarkably consistent leftfielder in his early 30s, with a steady pattern of decline foreshadowing a drop-off so steep he may no longer have anything left. Little rebound potential, but with one year left on his contract, Iím sure weíll find out if heís capable of handling any playing time at all.
1998 He picked a bad year to have an off season, but he lasted long enough to reach the peak with an organization that he, perhaps more than any other player, helped build. A very steady player, underrated defensively, who could be cheap and provide a consistent bat at first. Traded to Kansas City, where heís expected to be the everyday left fielder.
1997 About as good as a player can be without having one outstanding skill. Conine has never hit .320, or bopped 30 homers, or walked 80 times, which in todayís game is almost a prerequisite for greatness. Heís an incredibly durable player, and about as consistent as the sun rising or Newt Gingrich annoying people.
1996  The failure of the Royals to protect him in the Expansion Draft looks dumber and dumber every year. He hits for average and power, walks a lot, and is an extremely durable player. He doesn't turn 30 until June, and he may have three or four very good years left in him.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2008-08-01 14:00:00 (link to chat)Jay, what do you see happening over the waiver wires in the next month? And can I still dump Jack Wilson for more prospects, or do I need to wait until the winter?
(NealH from Pittsburgh, PA)
I have it on good authority that Jeff Conine will come out of retirement for the express purpose of being included in a waiver deal.

Beyond that I think we can expect to see action on some of the aforementioned Mariners, maybe some junk from the Orioles (Millar, Payton, Mora, Huff) or the Giants (Aurilia, Winn). Paul Byrd, Greg Maddux, maybe either Pierre or Andruw if the Dodgers are willing to eat a whole lot of salary.
Jack Wilson can probably be dumped for prospects if you're willing to eat salary, but given what he's locked in for ($6.5M this year, $7.25M in 2009, $8.4M/0.6M club option in 2010) I don't think he's all that appealing or will draw much in the way of prospects. Thank your predecessor once again. (Jay Jaffe)
