Lorenzen debut

Michael Lorenzen got called up and made his pitching debut:

Lorenzen walked one and struck out five. He threw 107 pitches, 68 strikes – the most pitches he has thrown as a professional. The high pitch count was the result of getting behind to hitters.

“He really didn’t establish the off-speed stuff for strikes early in the outing,” Reds manager Bryan Price said. “I think they were able to sit on fastballs when he needed a strike.”

I am not sure what came over me, but the chance to have Marco Gonzales on my roster appealed to me, I didn’t use logic that when Jamie Garcia went down with an injury that the #5 pitcher would not be Gonzales despite his terrific spring. I gave up Butler, a mainstay in Rockies rotation for years to come. A bad trade.

I made a bad trade this off season giving up Josh Bell for Aramis Ramirez. I didn’t research the trade well enough. I just remembered seeing Aramis at the All star game in 2014. I didn’t look at is second half of 2014 where his performance really fell off. Moreover, after the trade it was revealed he was going to retire after 2015. After reflection on making a bad deal, I decided moving on from Ramirez rather than taking on his bad contract of $25 in the upcoming draft.

I took a chance of waivers after the season and gave up Neil Ramirez for Homer Bailey. I drafted Bailey at $27 last year and when I decided to build for the next season, I traded him for Eddie Butler of the Rockies. At that salary, he is about $5-$10 overpriced. He has shoulder injury and will start year on DL. I cut him.

As far as Butler, he looked like the real deal after 2013. How easily we forget he will pitch in Colorado. He obviously had some form of an injury when he got the recall to majors in 2014 as he was blasted in his debut. I liked Marco Gonzales and given a chance to take on $10 salary in year 1 for Butler who was in year 2, I took the deal. My salary now was at $160

My salary was going to be at $160 coming into the draft. But, after some reflection, I thought I could get Grichuk back in the draft at less than his $10 price tag. Going into draft 12 players and $150.

With the Rockies signing Hundley to a two year six million dollar contract, its seems to me that Willan Rosario days in a Rockies uniform are numbered. The fact that his defense is suspect and he is arbitration eligible, a trade to the American league makes a lot of sense,

With Rosario in the last year of a long term contract.  i took a flyer on Rosario and traded him.  In return, YaGottaBelieve acquired Tony Cingrani who has an option for a long term contact. As a result, he will be priced at either $10 or $15 in the upcoming season.

That trade now gives YGB two starters from the Reds on its active roster with $27 Bailey and $10 Cingrani. In addition, YGB has two relievers in Rosenthal $7, and $10 Mejia.
