    Guess this means McLouth is up

    I wish this would have happened a few weeks ago instead of losing Pearce

    That’s the Endy of the road for him.

    I hope Cherrington saw that and made a quick notation.. No 1.5mAAV deals to useless utility people, much les for 2 seasons… Nick Punto is every bit as useless as Chavez, now why doesn’t Boston follow suit and unload Punto when the roster crunch time gets here so Ciriacco cab stay onboard, since Ciriacco actually contributes?

    Nice move Duquette in realizing you made a failed sign. nothing done bad before it was too late at least, just dial up Cherrington and tell him to get on the ball now.

      I don’t understand the comparison. Nick Punto doesn’t have his own music video.

        HAHAHA. good-‘un there Rabbit.

        figured someone would bring up one is a utility IF, vs 4-5th OF, but u came out of “LF” on that one.. U get an “atta boy” for sure bro.

    Endy is a good pick-uo for The SF Giants. He would give them a bat and a glove to spell Angel Pagan.

      Glove? Sure. Bat? No so much…

    • He has been terrible for the Orioles this year. He’s battling .190. All of the advanced stats in the world won’t overcome that! He is also only 2 out of 4 in SBs, so he hasn’t even proven to be a great pinch runner. 9th inning defensive replacement? Perhaps, but that is all he has.

    It seem like Endy only has a good year every 5 years.

    For some reason, Nate McLouth is deemed preferrable to Endy Chavez. I thought McLouth’s tank was empty two years ago, but that’s why they pay Duquette the big bucks.

      He’s only 30, far from over the hill. Let’s see what he’s got.

    I have to confess that, as much as I follow rosters and transactions and often recognize even the most obscure names in box scores, I had no idea Endy was still around. From the looks of it, I shouldn’t worry about it, because he was barely around anyways.
