Andino Traded 


O's traded Robert Andino to Seattle for Trayvon Robinson.

Like this move a lot, I think Robert hit his ceiling and it's time for the O's to move on.

Re: Andino Traded 


guess this means they are serious about giving Casilla a shot. Could end up being Casilla and Flaherty. I still don't hold out much hope that Roberts can come back fulltime.

Not to derail the thread but looks like Roberts may be close to, or has already finished, rehab and is able to assume full activities. Likelihood of him making Spring Training has gone up.

As for Andino, I like the guy. Yeah he didn't hit well last year but from everything I've read he was a teammate that everyone loved and Buck liked having on the team. I wish him lots of luck with the Mariners.

Roch interviewed B-Rob for those who missed it, interview ar MASNSports.com.

Good luck to Andino. He had some very good play for the Birds, both at short and second, but was forever striking out trying to hit it out. Good luck in Seattle...

I have always been a big fan of Roberts ever since his playing days with Rochester. It would be great if he could come back and play at the level we need him to play at. I just am very skeptical that his body will allow it. I'm sure the O's, if they feel he can play, will have him on a pretty short leash.

Bobby gave us some great moments but clearly isn't a building block. Seems like a pretty good move to me considering the log jam at the utility spot

RE: Andino Traded 


Why not try an sign a guy like Chone Figgins on the cheap..... at worst he can be a utility player.... He's definetely no worse than casilla

RE: Andino Traded 


He was probably getting non-tendered so I guess it's good to get anything for him
Never really one of my fav players def not a 'nugget'

Not sure what this guy we got brings - seems like nothing we don't already have in Avery/Hoes

Schoop was added to the 40 man roster as he may have been drafted in next months rule 5 draft.

Figgins has declined rapidly. His good days are behind him.

Re: Andino Traded 


Time will tell. Does worry me that in 288 major league ABs, Robinson has 104 strikeouts. Do you have to strikeout a lot to be on the Orioles radar ? Hope it works out.

Re: Andino Traded 


Robinson is insurance against Mark Reynolds not re signing. We have to replace Reynold's strike outs some how.

I don't know what got into me with the above. Reynold's strike outs don't really bother me that much. I suspect it's with the holiday, I have too much time on my hands to think up snarky comments, which I would normally avoid.

Resume normal posting.

RE: Andino Traded 


Well, it IS true....the O's do like to strike out a lot. Reynolds and Davis do it with great regularity. Fortunately they also produce some timely hits along the way.
